Today has been a very, very, very weird day.
Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
But in the meantime, let’s continue our look at Dark Matter Episode 304, “All The Time In The World”. First there was the loops. Then, there was phasing assassin. Finally, there were the Android flash-forwards…
Android flashes forward to her on the bridge of The Raza. THREE enters and stuns her. (Why is THREE shooting her? Is something wrong with THREE? Or is it the Android who’s the threat?)
Android flashes forward to her, in civvies, confused by the tears she is shedding. TWO consoles her, informs her she is experiencing grief. (Well, this is ominous. Who is she grieving over?)
Android flashes forward to her in a laboratory under the direction of Electus Corp. A scientist accuses her of being in league with the Android Liberation Front. It is revealed that she has been partially disassembled. (Is there an android rebellion brewing? And what role will our Android play in the suggested uprising?)
Android flashes forward to her in a strange black uniform, sporting a retinal upgrade. She is on The Raza, but it’s a darker version of the home she’s come to know and love. She encounters a future version of FIVE who informs her of an even darker future that awaits, then proceeds to list the following foreboding hints:
Dwarf Star’s Conspiracy (It appears we’ve received clues about this in preceding seasons)
The Doubled Deception (Clones? Alternate selves? Something else entirely?)
Kryden (Who is he?)
Carina (Who is she?)
The Accelerated (Oh, now this sounds all kinds of cool. But what does it mean?)
The fall of the House of Ishida (Well, no explanation required here. The question is not if but when?)
A meeting with you creator (Finally! The Android backstory!)
The Black ships (Oh, another ominous teaser)
What does it all mean? Well, like everything on Dark Matter, it’s all part of a greater plan. You’ll be getting answers to roughly half of these before season’s end. And answers to the rest before series’ end.
So, do you have any theories? The WorkPrint’s Jen Stayrook sure does. I’d love to read your takes on what it all means.
