Well, if the early reaction to the advance screeners of Episode 310, “Built, Not Born”, are any indication, tonight’s episode is going to rock your world. I’ve had half a dozen individuals reach out to say it’s their favorite episode. Not their favorite episode of the season, but their favorite episode of the entire series. Wild.
It’s an episode chock full of family moments, shocking reveals, and answers to some long-asked questions.
It is NOT to be missed!
SpoilerTV’s Aimee Hicks gives us an advance preview: So Many Feelings
“Dark Matter is about to unleash a feelings heavy episode that pulls at the heartstrings while dropping some major revelations. Joseph Mallozzi, Co-Creator/Executive Producer, has called this the “feeliest” episode of the series and even that’s an understatement. Nothing”
And Greg David at TV, Eh? offers up his thoughts: Dark Matter Delivers It’s Biggest “Holy Crap!” Moment Of Season 3
“There is a HUGE reveal midway through “Built, Not Born,” that will leave you spinning. Easily the biggest “Holy crap!” moment in a season chock full of them. It involves the Android, Two and Five and … nope, we won’t spoil it.”
Tom Gardiner at ThreeIfBySpace has the episodic stills – and some thoughts…
“This week’s Dark Matter episode, “Built, Not Born”, is going to blow your mind. Several times.”
And, oh, let’s whet your appetite with a sneak peek scene. What’s up with our Android?
Finally, more good news to buoy our spirits as we await work on a pick-up. The +7’s are in for the week of July 17th and Dark Matter tied for #1 in percentage gain among adults 18-49 with a 200% increase among all cable shows, and came in at #8 with a 113% increase in total viewers. Mighty impressive, I’d say.
