The fun continues this season as Krypton’s second episode delivers an even more entertaining hour this week. Last week’s premiere ended with the highly anticipated introduction of Lobo. This episode features a lot more of Lobo and fans are in for a hell of a wild ride.
Dive right in to check out my latest hints and teases for this week’s awesome episode. As always, minor spoilers ahead!
Brace yourself for impact
This character literally crashes on the scene within the first couple of minutes of the episode. It’s no surprise that they wreck havoc wherever they go. It’s what they’re known for after all. I was worried they’d spend the entire season teasing us before actually showing this character in action. I’m glad that doesn’t seem to be the case. Sometimes delayed gratification isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be and these writers get that.
What’s going on with Lyta?
I wrote about my Lyta theory in my review last week. This week’s episode only further cements my belief in that theory but you’ll have to judge for yourself. A lot goes down in this episode and a lot of it is bad. If you’re a fan of season one Lyta, this episode is going to be a little hard for you to get through. And it looks like it’s only going to get worse for her the rest of the season.
Nyssa is stuck between a rock and hard place
Zod is in control since he’s holding Cor-Vex captive. This episode will show how far Nyssa is willing to go to get back her child. It’s really hard to be mad at her in this episode. I think any good mother would do the same.
This season is visiting other locations
Last week, all of Seg’s storyline took place in the Phantom Zone and on Braniac’s planet. This episode expands on Brainiac’s home world and takes us to a whole new world as well. Wegthor is finally on the map and it looks exactly like I expected considering that’s the Resistance’s home base.
Lobo steals every scene
This character is hilariously inappropriate and every sentence that comes out of his mouth is better than the last. The dialogue for the character is so incredibly written but the real magic lies in the delivery. They could not have picked a more perfect actor and I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the episode that made Syfy execs decide to greenlight a Lobo series.
The return of some familiar faces
As expected, Jayna-Zod returns this episode and I have to admit that her entire arc this episode felt like it had a beginning, a middle and an end. There was something so beautiful and tragic about her reveal in this episode. Truthfully, it almost looked like a scene from Batman v Superman (the extended cut) but if I tell you which one, it’ll spoil you. You’ll get it after having watched. And Jayna’s not the only one to return this week. Another familiar face has a more subtle appearance. I’m glad that this character is back. I’ve always believed they could be a key player in the mythos of this show.
The plot twist in this episode is something I did not see coming
It’s not really that surprising but there’s a pretty big plot twist halfway through this episode. I didn’t really think they’d go there this early but I’m also not upset that they did. This seems to be a common story line for this particular character. Some of the best story lines to come out of past Superman shows was centered around this plot twist. So I’m definitely not complaining. They also seem to be doing their own take on it and that’s a very good thing!
