The CW has finally released the latest preview for “The Ties That Bind”, the forthcoming episode of Superman & Lois‘s second season. The second episode of the series is all set to air on Tuesday and from what we can see in the preview, it will find Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) having some strange visions— that appear to show the destruction of the world. These visions will help Clark open up to Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch), though he may find himself turning to someone else for help.

Here’s the preview for yourself below and the episode synopsis:
DAVID RAMSEY “ARROW” DIRECTS THE EPISODE – Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) opens up to Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) about his ongoing struggle with visions and admits that there is only one person who might be able to help. Meanwhile, Lana (Emmanuelle Chriqui) receives some unexpected news and tensions begin to rise between Lois and Chrissy (Sofia Hasmik). Lastly, Sarah (Inde Navarrette) breaks plans with Jordan (Alex Garfin) to spend time with Natalie (Tayler Buck). Jordan Elsass, Erik Valdez and Wole Parks star. The episode was directed by David Ramsey and written by Kristi Korzec & Michael Narducci.
The second season of Superman & Lois seems really poised to present its titular characters with newer challenges, which also includes the hero’s relationship with the military due to his new liaison Lt. Mitch Anderson, something that we had a taste of in the premiere of the series and even showrunner Todd Helbing spoke about it pretty recently as well.
“America benefited from where he landed, but if you’re Superman—or on our show, because he’s Clark Kent and because he had these fantastic parents—he has a responsibility not just to Smallville or to Kansas or to America, but to the world,” Helbing said.
“Sam Lane had done that job forever, and he obviously has all of the benefit of knowing who Superman really is, that he’s married to his daughter, their history, all of that,” Helbing continued, speaking about the liaison shift. “He can get away with things and hide things in a way that someone coming in who doesn’t know that secret wouldn’t be able to do. We’re playing all of that in conjunction with the idea that if you have someone like Superman at your disposal, and you’re a country, you want that person fighting for you.”
