Doomsday Unleashed In A Preview Of Next Week’s Krypton

by Erik Amaya

Next week is the penultimate episode Krypton‘s second season, and if this preview is any indication, it will be Doomsday for the rebels on Wegthor. Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) finally has control of the legendary beast and his first target is Val-El (Ian McElhinney) and the rest of the resistance. Do they stand a chance against the monster Superman died trying to stop?

Meanwhile, Lyta-Zod (Georgina Campbell) returns in the most unexpected and yet reasonable way. The cloning technology has been there from the start — in fact, it is likely Nyssa-Vex (Wallis Day) was always a clone of Daron-Vex’s wife — but only Zod had the will to use it this way. At the same time, sicking the Black Mercy on his own mother is a pretty cruel way to keep her in line.

Her return also means the love triangle is back on the menu. We’ve never been a huge fan of this concept as Krypton could very easily be place where triads occur. Then again, maintaining the “purity” of the houses may discourage such arrangements from being open and honest. Hopefully, the complete breakdown of Kandor society will lead to something more interesting than Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) choosing between Lyta and Nyssa. Instead, we hope they all choose each other as they hunt for Jor-El. At the very least, it would be a different dynamic for a show generally interested in playing unexpected cards.

In the meantime, though, Seg still had a revolution to save and a fairly unambiguous villain to stop. Can he do it with only two episodes left?

Krypton airs Wednesdays on Syfy.
