When we started watching Superman & Lois season 3, episode 2, we were well aware that there was the potential for a great deal of tension. But we were unprepared for Lois Lane to be diagnosed with cancer. In Superman & Lois season 301, Lois thought she could be pregnant; however, after undergoing a battery of tests in episode 2, she received the devastating news that she had, in fact, been diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, a rare and severe form of the disease.
Superman and Lois Season 3 Episode 3: Lois explores a Mannheim
Since the conclusion of Season 2, showrunners Todd Helbing and Brent Fletcher have been debating whether or not to include Lois’s cancer diagnosis in future episodes of the show. They are aware that if they do decide to proceed with this storyline, they will need to ensure that it is told in a responsible manner. Fletcher anticipates that viewers will be startled by how “in-depth” the show will go with Lois’ fight against cancer while yet maintaining the established tone of the show. he says to TV Line “We have a very hopeful family, and we hold onto that, but we’re never telling the audience that the threat isn’t real.” He continues by saying, “It’s our arc for the season.” “It’s our villain for the season, to be honest.”
But this is exactly what took place in Superman & Lois Season 3 Episode 2 when we found out that the character played by Elizabeth Tulloch had been diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, which is a particularly severe form of the disease.
In Superman & Lois Season 3 Episode 2, Lois Lane dissuades Reagen from taking her own life by revealing to her that she has been diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. Superman/ Clark is present throughout this conversation and overhears it. He was able to hear his wife’s heartfelt confession which is how he found out that Lois had been diagnosed with cancer. After reassuring her on the terrace, the pair went back inside to break the news to Jonathan and Jordan, which resulted in yet another upsetting episode for the Kent family.
Actress Elizabeth Tulloch told TVLine “I was a little shocked when [the producers] first told me that’s what they wanted to do.” “But I actually think it’s pretty wonderful. This storyline hasn’t been done, and cancer is such a prevalent force in so many people’s lives. This villain is so relatable and so real, and more than anything it’s one that Clark and Superman can’t just go handle. For Superman, who is this all-powerful superhero, to be faced with something he’s completely powerless against is even more grounding for the show, and it places a greater emphasis on the strength of us as a couple and the family dynamic. I thought it was exciting, and I hope the fans feel the same way.”
