Krypton – Season 2 Episode 6

“In Zod We Trust” Krypton slows things down to concentrate on how the various characters process their grief in the wake of Lyta’s death in the previous episode. I’m far from convinced that Lyta’s death is permanent but it doesn’t matter at this stage as everyone believes that she is so the episode becomes about…

“Matryoshka” The 100 continues develop the conflict that exists between Wonkru and the Primes as desperation fully asserts itself on both sides.

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 3

“Will to Power” Krypton focuses on Seg’s internal struggle with Brainiac as Val’s resistance movement prepares for definitive action against Zod’s regime.

The 100 – Season 6 Episode 8

“The Old Man and the Anomaly” The 100 further develops Octavia and Diyoza’s plot while considering the problem of Clarke being trapped inside her body by Josephine. Octavia and Diyoza’s plot has been an interesting contradiction. On one hand it’s an excellent pairing that is watchable on its own but on the other it suffers…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 2

“Ghost in the Fire” Krypton delivers a proper introduction for Lobo as Lyta struggles to deal with Seg’s absence in really damaging ways.
