Krypton S01E09 "Hope" Recap

Zod and Lyta resume their affair while they try to find a way to defeat Brainiac. Lyta clashes with her mother once more when she agrees with Zod's plan to use Doomsday against Brainiac while Jayna and Seg disagree with this plan. Jayna finally agrees with Lyta's more compassionate approach and philosophy to life but now Lyta feels more hardened to make the hard choices to do what's necessary.

Jax-Ur, Val's former protégée, beats Daron to interrogate him for the answers she is after. Daron later escapes but crashes his ship due to an electrical implant Jax-Ur had installed which she activates upon learning of his escape.

Seg refuses to use his blood to help Zod open the vault that contains Doomsday. Zod has already deduced that Seg is his father, making him both a Zod and an El. This means that he only requires his own blood to open the vault. However, it is already empty by the time he opens it since Seg and the followers of Cythonna have moved Doomsday's body. Further tension is escalated when it's revealed that the container holding Doomsday's body has been damaged and it's only a matter of time before Doomsday escapes.

The tension in the Zod-clan comes to a boiling point when Zod challenges Jayna to a Kandorian duel to the death, which she accepts. The fight is brutal and Lyta watches, horrified. Jayna gets Zod into a chokehold but Lyta shoots a non-lethal shot to stop the fight, angering both Zod and Jayna who escapes while Lyta and Zod argue. Some time later, Zod claims to Lyta that Val-El didn't really die, while Jayna collapses in the tunnels due to her injuries and is approached by an unknown figure. However, that figure is revealed to be her brother, who was long thought to be dead.

Seg and Nyssa are able to convince Black Zero and the remaining Sagitari to work together in a coordinated attack against Brainiac. Unfortunately, their attack fails. Although Nyssa is able to stop Brainiac from killing Seg by destroying the Voice's body, Brainiac himself survives by manifesting into its own entity in Kandor.

Krypton airs on Wednesdays on Syfy at 10/9c.
