Krypton Episode 3 Review
The obstacle to overcome this week is stopping a Brainiac sentry from infecting someone to learn the the secrets of Krypton for collection. Each attempt they make to recover the the sentry seems to be the end until it isn’t. The parasite finds a host in Kem’s sister, who’s Brainiac manipulated actions are mistaken for the actions of Black Zero.
Nyssa continues to win over Seg’s trust. She also hints at how involved Seg and Lyta really are implying that she has all kinds of secrets. Nyssa is definitely planting the seeds for Seg to trust her enough to tell her some of his own secrets. Hopefully Seg won’t fall for it. While she hopes for the success of the Rankless Initiative with her father for the Voice of Rao.
Lyta continues to seem to have to prove herself to everyone around her, like Seg, her mother, and now her new Sagittari squad. Which is causing a strain on her relationship Seg. Although she still trust him enough to buy him time to deal with Brainiac’s attack on the communication center. Lyta also makes the controversial choice to arrest one of her own Sagittari that is sure to come to bite her in the butt later on down the line.
Adam finally reveals the reason why he still Sticking around Kandor and ask the projection of Val_El’s conciseness to help him fix his Zeta Beam tech. While dealing with the threat of Brainiac, he has Seg question what’s the right way to handle the situation. Whether he sacrifice the lives of one for the live of many. Clearly these are the kind of tough questions Seg will have to overcome as he works to regain the former glory of his House and the meaning of its sigil. However, it will be interesting to see the lengths that Adam will go to to protect the future that he knows.
What was really interesting about this episode is that it shows the events that led to Brainiac’s claim on Krypton that was first proclaimed in the first episode.
At times Krypton’s dialogue can sometimes be toon the nose if you understand what I’m saying. There will a few lines of dialogue between two characters that directly to another couple off characters dialogue, which can be redundant and jarring. Overall, Krypton seems to be turning out to be a very interesting look into history of the infamous home of the Big Blue Boy Scout.
I believe at some point along the road Nyssa is going to betray her father to the Voice of Rao.
Lyta will continue to struggle with duty to her guild and wanting to do what’s right. She will probably go against a decision Seg makes in the future, but likely not one that would cut the Zod-El connection…yet.
Adam is undoubted stuck on Krypton until the end and will likely go against Seg as well ensuring he’s “doing what’s necessary”.
