With the sojourn to Colu at an end, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) and Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) return to Krypton. But for Seg, the six months of Dru-Zod’s (Colin Salmon) rule means he will be returning to a very changed Kandor. And as this preview of next week’s Krypton suggests, he will take his concerns straight to Zod and appeal to their connection to stop his plans for a galaxy controlled by a Kryptonian empire.
Meanwhile, the situation on Wegthor is about to get worse and it may even be the last stand for Kem (Rasmus Hardiker), who has been on the moon of Krypton for some time. We’ve been wondering what became of him and it is entirely possible his last episode will be next week. Although, we’re hopeful he will be able to switch sides and join the resistance at the first opportunity.
We’re also hoping Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Lobo (Emmett J. Scanlan) continue to haunt to the series. Ritson’s performance sets the standard for the cold, strange, and calculating computer tyrant. And Scanlan’s Lobo is just a hoot. He says all the catchphrases, sure, but we also appreciate the “frags” and “bastiches” pepper mile-a-minute dialogue that is almost impossible to parse at times. It gives Lobo an edge specific to television. Presumably, Brainiac took control of Lobo’s regenerating body in that last moment while Lobo retreated back to his discarded form on the other side of the force field. And if that is the case, you can bet da Main Man will follow Brainiac back to “Craptown.”
Also, it should be said, the show has a lot of confidence in itself if it is offering viewers a chance to call the show Craptown, but that confidence is definitely on display this season and we hope it will continue into a surprising season finale.
