'Krypton' Season 2 Episode 5 may see Seg-El get some answers about Lyta while Strange tries to escape from the Sagitari
Meanwhile, iconic villain Doomsday is still MIA and we can only hope that we see more of him in the fifth episode
This article contains spoilers for Episode 4: 'Danger Close'
'Krypton' Season 2 promised some gripping action and, so far, it has lived up to its billing.
It introduced us to a sassy supervillain in Lobo (Emmett J Scanlan) and gave us an insight about what General Dru Zod (Colin Salmon) had planned for Krypton.
While the fourth episode, 'Danger Close', was relatively slow-paced, what it did was set up the action that would unfold in the near future.
Last we saw, Brainiac (Blake Ritson) is still alive and hasn't been flushed out of Seg-El's (Cameron Cuffe) system. Seg goes and meets Lyta (Georgina Campbell), only to find out that she betrayed him by conveying his arrival to Zod.
Meanwhile, Strange meets Val-El (Ian McElhinney) and informs of Seg's safety, but also wonders if he is responsible for the destruction of Krypton due to his constant time travel, a result of which would be a rupture in the time and space continuum.
Going into the fifth episode 'A Better Yesterday', we may see more of Ann Ogbomo's Jayna-Zod (Lyta's mother) and Aaron Pierre's Dev-Em figuring out a way to overpower Zod. Much of their screentime together in the last episode was about Dev and his time with the Sagitari. We also got some info on his past with Lyta.
In the trailer for Episode 5, we see Jayna dressed as one of the Sagitari and locked-and-loaded to fight. But against whom? And at what cost?
What the audience has been looking forward to is the appearance of the iconic supervillain, Doomsday. The creature has been MIA and its role in the battle against Zod is one of the interesting parts that we have to watch out for.
You can watch the promo for Episode 5 below:
Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) and the resistance thought it was mission accomplished after infiltrating Zod's HQ, but were captured by the Sagitari and perhaps we may see the team wrestle out of the situation. But Strange's reluctance to use the Zeta beam device may come into question given that he's already worried about the consequences of his frequent time travels.
The trailer suggests a hostage situation and we are looking at three hostages at the moment. Nyssa-Vex (Wallis Day), her son Kor-Vex, and Strange. Going by the clip, Seg seems to be looking at an explanation about Lyta being brainwashed while attempting to rescue his loved ones at the same time.
Like we mentioned in our review of the fourth episode, 'Danger Close' is the first piece of the puzzle and we can expect the rest of the pieces to fall in place before a conclusion is reached.
At this stage, it is safe to assume that the episodes will pick up the pace and we may see more tightly-woven storylines.
Krypton' season 2 airs Wednesday nights on Syfy at 10 pm ET.
