April 12, 2016: Dark Matter – The Home Stretch!

Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel!  Following a day chock full o’ meetings, we’re in the home stretch.  Episode 212 starts shooting on Monday – which means our season finale starts prepping that same day – which means YOU’RE all that much closer to watching Dark Matter’s second season!

Awww, it’s a kid’s fingerprinting station.  How adorable – uh, hang on.  That’s not paint!  (Disquieting on-set visual compliments of Ivon Bartok). April 12, 2016: Dark Matter – The Home Stretch!Mystery corridor.  Note the stark Kubrickesque red and white color scheme.

Mystery box.  What’s inside?  I’m pretty sure it’s nothing good.

Mystery lab.  The spotlit table with the metal restraints is a tell.

Mystery crew.  What is the gang up to today?

Last day to post your questions for Melissa O’Neil Dark Matter’s TWO (as if you didn’t know).

Tomorrow, the voting commences for yet another Dark Matter episode title to be chosen by YOU!

  1. Red seems to be the theme in a couple of those pictures. Ivon does good work, as usual!

    Hmm, another box. Hey that reminds me – what’s going on with ol’ Boxy anyway? Haven’t seen that character in a while. I hope everything is okay!

  2. I can’t believe we’re almost at the end of filming another season. That went so fast! You’re probably laughing right now Joe, as the concept of time for us and for you are very different.

    Love the first picture in this post. Maybe we’ll see it again in promos?

  3. What’s in the box? “Memories like from the corners of one’s mind…”
    I read a bit of an article relating to current shows and the trend to some very depicted and sadistic violence such as in the final ep of “Walking Dead” ”
    Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad etc. Hope this is not the case with DM. Although the show in SG1 when Teal’c fights and defeats his nemasis towards the end was shocking to the show’s normal flow (I thought). Bangkok not so bad it you like 40C

  4. For Melissa: What do you like to do on your day off? Any advice to give a young person looking to be an actor? What can a person do in order to prepare themselves for this career? Love your work. You are beautiful and powerful at the same time.

  5. The set for season 2 is awesome. I can’t wait!

    I love that there is a spatula on the kids fingerprinting station. Hmm…pancakes?

  6. @Tam Dixon:

    Thanks for the birthday wishes! It’s been a nice relaxing day with the family topped off with some succulent BBQ. A good day all around…

    For Melissa O’Neil:

    Thanks for your work on Dark Matter. I’m really enjoying the series so far.

    On the Q&A: Two is an intense, driven, character…how are you like and unlike her? And what aspects of her character do you most admire?

  7. OMG, season 2 is fast aproaching. Can’t wait!

    I want to tell Melissa that I am a big fan of her and Two. She is doing a great job portraying this badass woman. All of the questions already asked are awesome, so looking forward to the answers. Since they are all great I have just one:
    1. What is your favorite song right now?
    (My go to question for my favorite artists, hehe. :))

  8. Mysterious mysteries! Wonderful pics, so intriguing.

    I have surgery scheduled for next week, so that’s great to get it done so early. The hospital has wifi, so I’ll be in *groggy* touch.

  9. Oooh Very cool mystery corridor!

    @Jeff W Glad to hear your special day was fun and relaxing! And hope you are able to have more fun days like that soon! 🙂

    @Joe So glad to hear your stress is almost over and thanks so much for all your hard work on season 2. Am sure we’ll love it And as always
    Thanks for ALL YOU DO to make a difference and pay all good fortunes forward xo

    @Tam @PBMom @PonyTail @KathyC @Chev @Zoe @TheOtherOne

    Just got word.
    Am So – so – so – so very sorry to have to tell you this guys.
    You know I really hate to be the bearer of bad news… albeit

    Doc says I’m gonna live.

    Looks like you’re just gonna have to put up with me a bit longer.

    ~Cest la vie~

    Sending chocolate chipped giggles n hugs to all today! <3

  10. For Melissa:
    What is it like to work with Zoie Palmer?
    What is one thing you wish your character could do and one thing that she did but you wish she didn’t?

  11. Drea: Great news!

    JeffW: Sounds like a great B-day!

    Another box? Boxes are popular in the future. I can’t believe S2 will be completed soon. It was like you just started. Good luck with all those decisions!

  12. @MaggieMayDay Sending hugs n happy rum soaked thoughts your way! So glad they were able to get you in early! Hope all goes well! xo

  13. Great to hear that there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

    That’s a lot of mystery…but all will be revealed soon.
    Looking forward to more promo videos/photos, shouldn’t be long now, before we have dates when Season 2 will air 👍

  14. @Drea.
    Great news! So happy for you 😁
    Celebrate with a large dose of chocolate cooookies!

  15. Looks like either TWO is in for a bit of the cutty-slicey or the Android is getting some sort of a refit. Interesting….

    -Mike A.

  16. Really like that first photo! Wonder what they’re discussing….
    Picture #2 … really not so keen on that one.
    Others look very stylish and clinical, hi-techy but in an underground kinda way. Hmmm.

    Would love to ask Melissa a really good question but all have already been put forward. Doh!
    Ok, so how about these ones…?
    In season 2 – are One and Two “a couple”? (Do they still get a discount when using Transfer Transit?)
    I have noticed, in the photos Joe has posted here, that your attitude appears different … more sassy. Is this Rebecca’s(or Portia’s) original character pushing through?
    Where were you when you heard you’d got the part of Two?
    How did you celebrate?
    Is her character exactly what you were expecting?
    Who did you think was the mole … before you actually found out!?

    Thanks for your time in reading and answering our questions (even if you don’t get round to mine 😊).

    As Two, you’re brilliant! Nuff said

  17. Joe, as per my usual thanks for the pics! Keeps the suspense & intrigue alive! If this were “Firefly”, there would be a girl named River in that box.

    Love the Stanley Kubick corridor. That slaughter table still has me worried & now you add a table with restraints! Don’t think it’s going to be smooth sailing in Season 2.

    @Drea: great news!
