This is the first year i've seen seed pods. What do they do?

The pods hang on the plant while the seeds mature. Eventually they dry and turn papery, split open and the seeds escape. You may then find a plethora of seedlings popping up which will need to be weeded out next summer. For this reason many gardeners collect the pods before they open.
