‘Krypton’s Colin Salmon Speaks Out About That Big Reveal

Did you miss last night’s (April 19) episode of SYFY’s Krypton? Then you missed one enormous reveal, when it turned out that *spoilers on* Colin Salmon is playing General Zod.

What the what? Zod is a frequent adversary of Superman’s, and Krypton takes place hundreds of years earlier, so what, exactly, is happening?

Don’t worry, folks, we’ve got a handy explainer for you about General Zod, and the whole reveal. But what about what actor Colin Salmon had to say?

Thanks to a new video from SYFY, we’ve got a few (and just a few) thoughts about the event. And if you did miss “House of Zod,” the whole final scene is in the video, too.

“There’s a really good reason why she is as good as I am,” Salmon says, referring to his fight with Georgina Campbell’s Lyta-Zod. “Or I am as good as her. The cliffhanger, it becomes clear at the end, when I realize who she is. And she realizes who I am. It’s quite a moment.”

Quite a moment indeed, but what does it mean for the show going forward? Ostensibly Zod is there to stop Brainiac (Blake Ritson), but there’s another big threat to the planet… Wasn’t there something about a baby… And a rocket…

Oh right:

“I’m aware Krypton is going to explode in 200 years,” Salmon continues, “So I’ll do anything to keep Krypton alive.”

Hmmm, saving his planet just to watch it die? Doesn’t sound like Zod to us. Chances are, the villain has something else up his sleeve.

Watch the clip for more:

Here’s the official description of the series from SYFY:

Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Krypton follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe, The Halcyon) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. Based on DC characters, Krypton is executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy). Cameron Welsh (Ash vs Evil Dead) will serve as executive producer and showrunner.
