I’m not sure this has happened to me before, but while I was watching “The Alpha and the Omega,” which was the season two finale for Krypton, I got word the series had been cancelled.
The writers on Krypton got really clever with this episode. There were some great twists and turns along the way that I did not see coming.
The puns on Zod’s name continue with, “Zods and Monsters.” Personally, I think that’s a bit redundant, since Zod is a monster in my book, but there are a few others in this episode.
Krypton didn’t have a mid-season finale, but the halfway point came with a major shock.
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.
Things on Krypton under Zod are a mess, and the heroes are going to have trouble getting him out of power. It’ll be even harder as we learn what he’s doing to opponents he captures.
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.
