Krypton hits the halfway point for its second season with “A Better Yesterday.” The rebellion against Zod continues with twists and turns on both sides. There’s a lot of ruthlessness on this planet.
Three episodes in, you could make the argument that not a lot has happened so far this season. Zod still rules Krypton, the resistance is, well, resisting, and Seg and Adam are still stuck on Colu dealing with the sorta-ghost of Brainiac and the very real Lobo.
We got the new state of affairs on Krypton (and Colu) last episode to kick off the season. Now, things are getting uglier in both places.
In the opening, Zod has a ranting voiceover about his accomplishments since gaining power at the end of last season. One of the things we learn is that it’s been six months between seasons, and it feels like it’s been at least that long for us as well as them.
As usual with season finales, there are likely going to be spoilers in this one. Be warned.
Krypton ends its first season with a title that is chilling for anyone who knows more than just the basics of the Superman mythos: “The Phantom Zone.”
“Savage Night” backs up a bit in the timeline of events on Krypton. We start with the first meeting of Adam Strange and Seg-El, and Adam disappearing when Seg looked away.
We saw how poorly the coup attempt went in “Civil War.” Now we see the aftermath as things spiral out of control in “Transformation.” If they keep this up, Krypton won’t last long enough to get to Jor-El, let alone the far more famous Kal-El, Last Son of Krypton.
