The penultimate episode of Krypton‘s first season reveals that Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) is the daddy of Common Zod (Colin Salmon), which makes Zod Superman’s uncle. By linking the Zod and El households, Krypton has made a serious change to Superman’s backstory that might have big implications for the sequence going ahead.
Common Zod’s arrival on Krypton has modified the present’s course in a giant method. We came upon within the fifth episode of the sequence that Zod is Lyta’s son from the long run. It was Zod who advised Seg and the others Brainiac’s true plans for Krypton and town of Kandor. Zod’s efforts to defeat Brainiac by unleashing Doomsday divided the characters, significantly Adam Unusual (Shaun Sipos), who has vowed to kill Zod. It was ultimately agreed that releasing Doomsday can be too harmful, and that they must discover one other solution to save Krypton.

In tonight’s episode, titled ‘Hope’, Common Zod modifications his thoughts about Doomsday and convinces Lyta (Georgina Campbell) to assist him. Since releasing Doomsday requires the blood of a Zod and an El, it appeared that Zod would not be capable to accomplish his mission with out Seg’s assist. Nonetheless, Zod’s blood alone proves to be sufficient to open the door. In keeping with Zod, Seg is his father. Zod figured this out after taking discover of Seg’s relationship with Lyta. In an earlier episode, Zod was requested in regards to the identification of his father, the place he defined that he by no means knew his father, and that he believed the person to be a soldier who had died preventing Brainiac.
Although this reveal could have been anticipated by some followers, it is vital as a result of it is Krypton‘s first significant change to Superman’s comedian e book backstory. Up till this level, every thing about Krypton‘s Superman has been devoted to the comics, together with Superman’s fame, his rivalry with Zod, and Zod’s historical past with Jor-El.
It is doable that Zod being the son of Seg and Lyta might make the characters’ state of affairs much more difficult. Lyta’s resolution to assist Zod has alienated Seg, who was not too long ago knowledgeable of Zod’s intentions to change into the subsequent ruler of Krypton. Her loyalty to him and his trigger was cemented when she shot her personal mom throughout their duel. A reconciliation between Seg and Lyta does not appear possible at this level, which might threaten Zod’s very existence. Whereas the present has up to now been targeted on the chance that Superman’s start may very well be undone, it could as a substitute be Common Zod who finally ends up being worn out of existence. If Seg and Lyta do not get again collectively, Superman could lose one in all his biggest enemies.
