Things are about to get crazy…
Episode 308, “Hot Chocolate”: John Stead (who also doubles as our stunt coordinator) has directed my favorite episodes of the show to date (Episode 10 in which we first introduce Wexler and co., “We Were Family” in which we were introduced to Victor, his fellow androids, and THREE’s long lost “father”). And he does so again in this outing that sees Ryo Ishida access the ship in surprising fashion. And he’s brought friends. It’s the TWO/Ryo Ishida showdown you’ve been waiting for…that took an entire day to shoot!
Episode 309, “Isn’t That A Paradox?”: It’s Back To The Future meets Stranger Things in this crazy time travel tale that sees our crew going undercover as a suburban family in 2017 Fort Falls, Wisconsin. Directed by Craig David Wallace.
Episode 310, “Built, Not Born”: Directed by Melanie Orr, this one explores TWO and the Android’s surprising backstory. We learn the Android’s origin – and her name! Our feeliest episode ever.
Episode 311, “The Dwarf Star Conspiracy”. Many of the narrative pieces we put in play in previous seasons begin to pay off – like this reveal of exactly what Alexander Rook was up to when he created Rebecca aka Portia aka TWO. Directed by Steve Dimarco.
Episode 312, “My Final Gift To You”. Shocking secrets are revealed. Deception, betrayal, tragedy and a significant death. Directed by Bruce McDonald.
Episode 313, “Nowhere To Go”: Former enemies become unexpected allied. Friends become unforeseen enemies. And a shocking turn changes everything, setting up a fan-tastic new chapter in the Dark Matter saga. Directed by Ron Murphy.
SpoilerTV’s Aimee Hicks previews this Friday night’s episode: “Hot Chocolate”.
” Things rapidly progress from bad to worse to intense as the early part of the episode unfolds and then the intensity carries throughout.”
One of you asked why I don’t respond to more comments. First, let me be clear: I read and approve each and every comment. Unfortunately, the wordpress set up makes responding to individual comments somewhat troublesome and confusing. If you’d like to ask me a direct question and expect a speedy answer, might I suggest dropping by the Dark Matter subreddit. Or even the Stargate subreddit which I have also been known to frequent. Along with: books, science fiction, and pugs. Alternately, you can find me on twitter which is an easy Q&A forum (but not much else).
But I know many of you are traditionalists who prefer the familiar confines of this blog. And so, I’m going to open the mailbag in the coming days and field your queries and concerns. If you have questions, post them in the comments section. I’ll answer them this weekend!
