Storyline

In the wake of Lois Lane's death, Ron tells the team about a theory where Superman will rewind time to save her and there would be no consequences. Just when everyone starts to take advantage - Ron becomes a dog owner, Emily and Wendy get in trouble with the law, Jackie takes up day drinking, Teddy makes a power move and Van gives Bruce a piece of his mind - things start to go awry when the theory may not be as sound as they were thinking. Written by NBC

This was far more brilliant than expected
21 June 2017 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

Powerless, a cute and sometimes clever sitcom, was canceled before this episode was aired, and that is a tragedy, because it is not the best episode of the series but a really remarkable episode in general (I tracked it down online; it's only been released in New Zealand).

The basic premise is quite ingenious. Louis Lane has been killed, and a crank scientist insists that she has died before and was revived when Superman turned back time.

Believing that this will happen again (a theory justified when Stephen Hawking publicly murders Neil Degrasse Tyson), the cast realizes that this means they can do anything they want with no consequences, leading to a free-for-all (which ranges from Teddy telling off everyone he works for to Emily deciding to eat an entire chocolate muffin).

The episode is wonderfully plotted, and the ending is sweet and funny. It's a shame hardly anyone will ever see it.

If Powerless had started this good, it probably wouldn't have been canceled.
