'No Ordinary Family' recap: Partners In Crime... Fighting


It's Jim and Stephanie's anniversary, so they leave their untrustworthy spawn home alone, while they take off for dinner and an overnight date at a hotel. The problem is, they don't leave Jim's cellphone behind, so George calls every five minutes trying to lure Jim into chasing a fire-starting super villain, whom we'll be callingSparkles. Jim resists George's siren song, but when he and Steph happen upon a fire and Jim spots Sparkles, the Powells pair up to fight crime. Unbeknownst to our lovebirds, Sparkles is Dr. RevCam King's monster, and is doing his bidding. When Jim knocks out Sparkles, the cops find and arrest the fiend, but have to bring him to the hospital. 

Jim takes Stephanie to George's lair and they plot to bust out Sparkles when he's transported to the precinct, so that he doesn't burn down the whole town. Once he's free, Steph will sedate him and run blood work, to determine his kryptonite, and then disable him permanently... or that's the plan. Said plan falls apart, because Dr. King has Will running interference for Sparkles, too. Will frees him by flipping the paddy wagon that's transporting him, right before the Powells get to him. While Jim drags the unconscious cops out of their wrecked ride, Stephanie races after Sparkles. He's not too slow, himself, and nearly manages to set her on fire, but Jim comes to the rescue. It all ends with Sparkles being doused (and killed) by sand or dry cement mix, or something. With the mood ruined, the Powells return to their pad and their delinquent progeny.
