Synopsis for "Leviathan Rises, Part 1"
Jimmy is taken by his new girlfriend Ella to a secret meeting of the Kobra Cult in Seattle. Ella urges Jimmy to join the Kobra Cult, and they create a better world, free from the poison of the old one. Although he is shocked that Ella is part of a murderous cult, Jimmy decides to stay and investigate. The leader of the cult is delivering a speech to his followers, but Jimmy pulls out a camera and takes a picture. The angry cultists chase after Jimmy, who barely escapes from the building before it is engulfed by a mysterious blue light.
Jimmy returns to Metropolis and spends the night at Perry's office. The next morning, Perry awakens Jimmy and angrily asks if he has anything he can publish. Jimmy has nothing, causing Perry to throw him out of his office. Jimmy returns to his desk and tries to have a talk with Clark, who is too busy investigating Robinson to pay attention to Jimmy's comments. Clark leaves and Jimmy is left alone to ponder on the fact that his girlfriend was a lizard person.
Meanwhile, Lois meets up with her father Sam outside the Exelon Observatory. To make sure no one is listening, Sam activates a signal-scrambling device created by A.R.G.U.S.. He asks about Lois' family and she replies that Jon is safe. She also says that she hasn't been entirely honest with him about her life, and finds it hard to trust her father. Sam himself admits he does not trust easily, which makes him pretty good at job.
Lois admits that she has been meaning to tell something very important to Sam, something she should have told her the day before her wedding: she is married to Superman. Superman is the father of Sam's grandson, who is on the other side of the galaxy with his other grandfather. After seeing Superman struggle with his father and her own complicated relationship with Sam, Lois does not want this to affect Jon, which is why she is being honest with him. Sam walks away, without saying a word and Lois can only shed a tear.
Meanwhile, Superman finds himself flying across Atlanta, Georgia, until he hears a cry for help. He flies deeper into the city and finds Amanda Waller falling from a tall building. He is able to catch her and asks who attacked her. Amanda says she couldn't get a good look at her assailant, and whoever that is, they must still be in the building. Unfortunately, the building is consumed by the same blue light that destroyed the Kobra Cult's building, and Superman is unable to identify the attacker. Superman saves as many victims as he is able but finds Amanda missing.
