Krypton’s “Blood Moon” Tragedy Is No Trick of the Light

RAO. DAMN. IT. I am officially traumatized by this season. First, Dru-Zod’s insanity is fully fleshed out through Lyta’s exposition of what she experienced before the Black Mercy was administered. He not only beat her into physical submission, he then replaced her with a compliant clone and stuffed the parasitic […]

Krypton Spares No “Mercy”

Nice one. I certainly don’t mind having my theories blown to bits when it’s done this well. We start the episode with what seems like a flashback to Lyta and Seg’s early courtship. Seg suggests that they run away from Kandor together and start a new life together in Kryptonopolis. […]

Krypton Gets Its “Zods and Monsters” Confused

Oh, for the love of Rao. I’m all for simplifying convoluted plotlines (and Krypton’s been a repeat offender of some serious kitchen-sink writing) but when they throw galaxy-sized overly-simplistic deus ex machina shenanigans into the mix, it does nothing but make it an even bigger muddle. Let’s start with the […]

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 […]

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 […]
