Krypton (S02E04) “Danger Close”

Episode 4 certainly did not disappoint. Storylines start to converge, characters reuniting, and conflict escalates. And oh boy, I can’t wait to see more!

Seg (Cameron Cuffe) and Adam (Shaun Sipos) finally made it back to Krypton. However, to my dismay, they split up which obviously is rarely a good thing to do. Especially if one of them is going straight to the enemy. Seg believes that Lyta (Georgina Campbell) could be the key to defeating Zod (Colin Salmon). He thinks that by getting her support, Zod’s supporters would follow Lyta’s footsteps. Although their reunion went off to a great start, turns out, Lyta told Zod about Seg’s return. Seg truly believes that he could reason with Zod which is, of course, a futile attempt.

Seg finds out about “somatic reconditioning” and discovers that Lyta has been reconditioned as well. It is finally revealed after episodes of subtle hints; although it is fairly obvious that something is up with Lyta. So, one question remains—will we get our Lyta back? Perhaps Jayna (Ann Ogbomo) could be the one to “bring her back”.

We also discover that Brainiac (Blake Ritson) is still inside Seg after all, which was actually a good thing since it prevented Seg from being successfully reconditioned. This gives me hope that we will see more of Lobo (Emmett J. Scanlan) in the upcoming episodes.

Dev (Aaron Pierre) tells Jayna the story of why he left the Sagitari and how Lyta is not the person she was. Dev asks Jayna whether she would be willing to go all the way if Lyta could not be saved, to which she answers that she doesn’t know. I am looking forward to seeing the moment they reunite. Jayna has grown to become one of my favorite characters. In season 1, we saw her as this cruel and ruthless person, but now she’s changed. Ironically, Lyta is the one who now matches that description.

Meanwhile, in Wegthor, the rebels, along with Kem (Rasmus Hardiker) and Adam, decided to try to take control of the space elevator using the freshly taken supplies. Unknowing to Val (Ian McElhinney), Jax (Hannah Waddingham) had set up a backup plan in case the plan goes awry which Val was not happy about once he found out. Unknowing to Val—again—he has been played by Nyssa (Wallis Day) who is now on her way back to Zod to deliver the codex he has willingly given to her.

Overall, I enjoyed watching this episode as the characters are crossing paths again and more action is starting to happen. I hope that in the next episode we could see more tension and conflict, and of course, Lobo! Also, what has Doomsday been up to? We haven’t seen much of him.
