“Light-Years From Home” (Episode 201)
June 12, 2019
Welcome to a new season of the fantastic Syfy original series, Krypton. A quick catch-up on what happened last year. Last Season, on Krypton …
Brainiac and the Basic Plot. Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos), a time-traveling Earthling and friend of Kal-El (better known to us as Superman), arrives on the planet Krypton with Superman’s iconic red cape in hand. Adam finds Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), Superman’s grandfather, and tells Seg that Superman is in danger and he has to save him. How is he in danger? Brainiac (Blake Ritson), the Collector of Worlds y’all. Brainiac is a gruesome, green, mean dude who has set his sights on Krypton and wants to change events as to ensure Superman is never born. Seg manages to trap Brainiac in the Phantom Zone, but, whoopsies, he is sucked in as well.
Family Life Is Hard. Seg loves Lyta-Zod (Georgina Campbell) but is in an arranged marriage sitch with Nyssa-Vex (Wallis Day). Family politics and all that. Seg and Nyssa learn their child will be named Cor-Vex. Jax-Ur (Hannah Waddingham) tells Nyssa that she is a clone! *Gasp*
General Zod (Colin Salmon), yes THAT General Zod, arrives from the future with a plan to save Krypton by ruling it. Lyta has a confused how this grown man is her son but, time travel! Seg learns that General Dru-Zod is his son (and Superman’s uncle!). After Seg and Brainiac are trapped in the Phantom Zone, Zod destroys the mechanism that controls the entrance to the Phantom Zone, thus preserving this new timeline from being tinkered with. Sensing the power vacuum, Zod assumes rule of Krypton. The emblem on the cape Adam brought to Krypton changes from the House of El to the crest for the House of Zod.
“Kneel before Zod.”
