General Zod says Brainiac taking Kandor City causes the planet’s core to destabilise, leading to the devastating destruction of the planet. Beardy plots. What cataclysm is he on about? Did something cause Krypton to be such a harsh environment? Adam Strange does not offer a rational explanation for his lies. Seg does a lot of roaring. This was not bleakly funny or unremittingly intense.
There are only 8 other cities on Krypton? I give little credence to Beardy’s posturing. Some irritating git annoys. Adam Strange annoys and bores. Why is Krypton quasi-apocalyptic? Adam Strange travelled back in time not knowing the full story. This was okay. Behind a sigil made up of the El and Zod sigils is Doomsday. This is not prodigiously successful but the Doomsday reveal made me decide to keep watching.
Will Adam Strange stop lying and causing problems? Seg decides Adam Strange’s story needs reappraising. Adam Strange claims no responsibility for his lies. The relatively mundane show shows some sign of improvement with this ep. TPTB try to make this laden with significance. People are badly informed. There is death and a coup goes awry and Adam Strange and his lies provoke fury. Seg is disillusioned. Seg, Lyta and General Zod plan a collaborative response to save Krypton and change history.

Among their myriad other qualities, Apex don’t sleep. How did the locket photo survive a dip in the ocean? How did Jude beat the mob to the camp? Jude is a moral vacuum. Emma’s body is found. Jude tampers with a crime scene. Jude is the least positive aspect of this show. Eve and her husband Paul reunite. A mystery woman shows up. How did the doctor have a spy cane? This was 100% unlovely.
“Savant abilities not even they could match.”
