Krypton’s Heroes Falter While “In Zod We Trust”

Obviously, different people deal with grief in different ways. In the aftermath of Lyta’s execution, Jayna, Dev, and Seg wander the Kandor alleys in shock. Eventually, Seg screams his agony and then siphons his energy into opposing Dru-Zod’s plans and trying to make Lyta’s death “matter”. Jayna sinks into a […]

Krypton Dreams of “A Better Yesterday”

Ho-ly crap, Batman. There’s a LOT to unpack at this mid-season point. At the same time, I can appreciate that this show still manages to surprise me. In the wake of Dru-Zod’s plan to wipe out the rebel ground forces with tainted oxygenators coming to fruition, the expectation would be […]

Almost Nothing Goes as Planned with Krypton’s “Close Danger”

Best-laid plans always have the potential to go wrong. When Seg’s involved, they’re almost guaranteed to go wrong. Conversely, Dru-Zod has shown that he’s a master planner, taking control of nearly every potential variable in his systematic subjugation of the planet. Not content with two planners, Krypton also has Jayna-Zod […]

Krypton Redefines the “Will to Power”

Philosophers tell us that the “will to power” is the concept wherein the driving force of humanity is to subjugate or overcome others. This is more than sheer force or strength, it is using that greater ability for creative purposes or motivations. The various plotlines of Krypton here are elegant […]

Krypton Has More Than One “Ghost in the Fire”

As predicted, having so many plotlines running on different planets makes for an overly busy episode. In the city of Kandor on Krypton, we have Lyta taking on the role of Primus, training and disciplining the military Sagitari. One of the cadets reminds her of Seg and at first, it […]

Finale Puts Krypton on a Highway to “The Phantom Zone”

Thank Rao that Syfy announced Krypton’s renewal before this episode aired. With all the crazy cancellations flying around, it would’ve been too nerve-wracking not knowing if there was going to be a continuation to this story. There were a lot of big characters M.I.A. in this finale such as Jayna […]

There’s a Little Strange and a Lot to Vex in Krypton’s “Savage Day”

Heroism and Destiny are the themes to watch for as Krypton‘s first season winds towards its finale. In a cool little flashback twist, we find out where Adam Strange goes when the Zeta-Beam Device rips him out of sight. Instead of yoyo-ing him between present-day Earth and two hundred years […]

Krypton’s Heroes Assemble in “Transformation”

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Three Zods, an El, and a Vex walk into a bar… But I’m getting ahead of myself. This is an episode about true colours. In the case of Daron, that would be coward’s yellow as he throws his own daughter under the Brainiac […]

Krypton Makes Strange Bedfellows in “Civil Wars”

So I’m obviously a little slow on the uptake these days. Despite the Commander revealing in “House of Zod” that he is Lyta’s future son, I was still taken by surprise when Adam Strange pops up and identifies him as THE General Zod from the Superman timeline. The action was […]

Krypton Underestimates the “House of Zod”

There’s something brewing in the realm of Krypton. Actually, a lot of somethings and although the series is ostensibly centred on the single remaining representative of the House of El, the other factions orbiting Seg are proving far more interesting. First and foremost, there’s Lyta Zod who escapes execution when […]
