Spoilery poll on "Vessel" theories



I still haven't had a chance to rewatch the episodes, since I am at work, but I've been reading lots of people's theories that Jor-El has been Zod this whole time. This makes me want to not just rewatch "Vessel," be rewatch the whole season, looking for clues. (I'm wondering, for example, if a pivotal moment might have been Jor-El downloading into Lionel's body to save Clark--maybe that triggered something that allowed Zod to take over in the Fortress, and it hasn't been Zod all along?)

But really I have no clue. Do you have a theory?


Poll #727723 Vessel poll: theories about the mytharc

What's your theory about Jor-El & Zod?

Jor-El has never interacted with Clark; it's been Zod the whole time
2(6.7%)
Jor-El has been Jor-El the whole time, and Zod was in the Phantom Zone before last night
3(10.0%)
Zod's imprisonment was somehow being maintained by Jor-El, but when Jor-El downloaded into Lionel's body, Zod was able to control the Fortress
0(0.0%)
It was Jor-El in Clark's ship and the cave, but Brainiac or Zod in the Fortress
2(6.7%)
It was Brainiac or Zod in the cave and Clark's ship, but Jor-El in the Fortress
1(3.3%)
Dude, I have no fricking clue
2(6.7%)
This makes my brain hurt
8(26.7%)
I have another theory I will share in comments
0(0.0%)

So if Jor-El is really Zod, that means Lionel

really does have an evil plan: Zod's plan
4(13.3%)
Is somehow being controlled by the real Jor-El
9(30.0%)
Was Zod's test avatar
1(3.3%)
Dude, I have no fricking clue
12(40.0%)
I have another theory I will share in comments
0(0.0%)

So who's going to save the day?

Lex is going to somehow wake up inside Zod and take charge
0(0.0%)
Lana, because she's really the only one not incapacitated
0(0.0%)
Clark's going to figure a way to escape the Phantom Zone
5(16.7%)
Lion-El will come to the rescue
6(20.0%)
Lion-El is really Zod, but the REAL Jor-El will somehow appear and save the day
2(6.7%)
Countess Isabelle, because we don't have *enough* body-swapping going on yet!
3(10.0%)
I have another theory I'll tell you about in comments
2(6.7%)

My only theory: somehow, this all ties into the plot of "Superman Returns". This whole season of SV has really been a trailer for the movie. That's my theory.

Well, I think you're probably right about that--which is pretty annoying--but I expect it must do so in a kind of ambiguous way, because I can't see Almiles agreeing to let their season premiere be destroyed because their big plot complication was revealed by the movie.

"Superman Returns" cost over $150 million. AlMiles will do what they're told.

But once the movie comes out, they presumably can do whatever, because there's no way a sequel can come out before SV has wrapped 7 seasons (which I assume is the longest it would possibly go on).

I think Lion-El will come to the rescue with Chloe's help.

That was my theory until lots of people started making convincing arguments that Jor-El was really Zod, and then I couldn't figure out who would be left to save the day!

I agree with this theory! And this theory pleases me greatly, so I really hope it's the right one.

That poll was hard.

I know. It was hard to WRITE! And I checked "I have no fricking clue" twice for my own poll!

At least for those of us of a meta-y persuasion, we'll have plenty of crack theories to play with this summer.

You know, the writers can have it any way they like (and usually do). But...

What if Zod wasn't able to infiltrate the Fortress until Fine was "destroyed"? Of course, Zod *could've* been in the PZ prior to the ship's arrival - and it took all the events leading up to Fine's supposed death to free him (if not render him corporeal).

BTW, I'm voting for Chloe and Lion-El too. I can't imagine my sweet, dumb Clark getting out on his own.

Until Fine was destroyed the first time, or last night with the mystical dagger?

Yeah, I should have put Chloe on the list--it's just she looks like she's seriously getting beat up. And I hope Lion-El (or at least Jor-El, if Lion-El is real Lionzod) is coming to the rescue.

The first time. Because didn't Clark almost release Zod?

Yes, that's what I thought you meant, I just wanted to be sure.

ZODOBEL! A ship worthy of my craziness.

Goodness, I still can't figure it out- my brain's whirring like a hamster on acid.

I'd like it if Kara came back, and still had a bit of her Kryptonian-esque powers....but that might only happen in fic.

Wow. Zodobel has to be the best ship name, ever.

I'll feel cheated if it does happen but maybe Zod and Lion-El will face off and something will happen in which in order to save Lex's life, Lionel has to give his complete body over to Jor-El. Which he does, and then Jor-El goes ahead and saves Clark from the Phantom Zone. But dies, or something.

See, there was a second in "Vessel" where I thought that was what was going to happen. Because when Clark told Lionel that Lex was the vessel, Lionel kind of collapsed, and I thought, omg, the MB *does* love Lex after all, and wouldn't it be cool if he somehow rescues Lex from Zod by switching bodies or something, and dies that way. Because that would be actual redemption, to me, not fake redemption.

But then he was all "Lex, you've always been evil" and "Clark, Lex has always been evil," and I forgot that thought, in my raginess. But it could still happen in the season premiere, and I like your scenario!

raginess is a really good word for it!

I love reading this stuff!

Thanks! And I'm pretty sure toadstoolsmiles invented the word raginess, or at least I stole it from her. (Using my "icon of raginess" because it's appropriate).
