“I think he is crazy, Joey. He makes people anxious!”
My mother halfway through watching the Dark Matter season finale.
My sis followed up with this text: “And I have no nails left.”
Would love to open this blog up to discussion about the finale, but I’m going to hold off until next week, after our viewers across the pond have caught up. All I’ll say now is that, contrary to io9’s assumption that we just pulled the “big reveal” out of our collective asses at the last minute, it was actually something we worked towards – and oh-so-subtley set up – in the episodes leading up to the big finish. In fact, a number of fans have put together the pieces and posited some dead-on theories of the how’s and why’s. Well done!
And another ?Well done!” to our recent contest winner who correctly guessed all four questions I posited in the lead-up to the finale. I’ll be revealing the winner next week!
Also next week, I’m going to do a rewind and take you through the show’s first season run, behind-the-scenes style, offering insights, pics, and vids to accompany every episode.
Speaking of which, here are a few behind-the-scenes non-spoiler pics from that finale…
Anthony Lemke (THREE) and Melissa O’Neil (TWO) kicking back between set-ups.
Director Andy Mikita, Director of Photography Craig Wright, and actor Alex Mallari Jr. (FOUR) take in “the infirmary scene” run-thru.
Jodelle Ferland (FIVE) checks her light before heading into the dark.
Who is this masked man?
If you have any questions for me, post ’em in the comments section! I’m going to try to do a mailbag in the coming days!
