Doomsday is unleashed in the latest episode of Krypton, and proves to be just as destructive as one could want.
The episode is a bit strangely paced, having Doomsday attack the rebels fairly early on, and then bringing him back for the grand finale. Between those parts, there was some more drama dealing with Lyta Zod’s “return” from the dead.
That plot development all but ruined the previous episode for me, though I will credit that the scenes between Lyta (Georgina Campbell) and her mother (Ann Ogbomo), Dev-Em (Aaron Pierre), and Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) in this episode were decently done. Some time was spent making sense of the event, and how she was cloned. But it still cast a bit of a pall on the season as a whole.
Thankfully, the Doomsday parts were done very well, and more than carried the episode. This was definitely the most brutal installment of the series, with some stomach churning moments. And though the fate of Wegthor played out differently than it does in the comics, I was glad to see the same conclusion was reached.
There is only one more episode to go, and a lot of plot elements that need to be dealt with. I was really hoping to see Lobo again. Sooner or later his tracking ability will bring him to Krypton to get revenge on Seg and Adam Strange (Stephen Sipon).
It would be a shame if he only appears right at the end of next week’s season finale.
But even if that happens, the second season of Krypton is still miles above the first, and I am genuinely hoping it gets a third.
