Everything about Dark Matter, eh?

From Kelly Townsend of The TV Junkies:

Link: Dark Matter: Ellen Wong on why Misaki doesn’t consider herself a villain
“I feel that it’s always coming from a place of needing to make a decision for the greater good and sometimes it sucks to have to lose things along the way, but that’s part of war and that’s part of it being your home and your people in the long run. That’s my perspective.” Continue reading.

Link: Dark Matter’s Natalie Brown on her expanded role in Season 3

From Kelly Townsend of The TV Junkies:

Link: Dark Matter’s Natalie Brown on her expanded role in Season 3
“I think that things were a little rough for her on her home planet, so this was a much more hospitable place that she always dreamed of being. Although it’s interesting to me that she can create anything she wants, and all she seems to want is a soft place to sleep and somewhere welcoming for Three that’s green and lush. I feel like her planet was so overmined that what she really missed was clean air that she wasn’t able to breathe, so she gave herself plenty of greenery and oxygen.” Continue reading.

Dark Matter: The Raza family reunion

Dark Matter took a dark and surprising turn during last week’s instalment, setting up what promises to be one heck of a season finale. By the time the dust had settled in “The Dwarf Star Conspiracy,” we’d learned Rook was merely a pawn in an alien plot, creating host bodies for the scary, black liquidy beings. I had totally forgotten about the black goo that took over Three last season. Admittedly, a LOT has happened since then.

By episode’s end, a nuclear device destroyed the facility—and perhaps the alien portal—and alternate Boone had captured Two.

Which leads us to this week’s penultimate instalment, “My Final Gift to You,” written by co-creators Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie and directed by Bruce McDonald. Take a look at the top image and you’ll see the crew of the Raza has reunited, and we’re not sure it’s going to be a happy one. Here is Space’s episode synopsis:

Ryo invites his former crew to Zairon in a final attempt to secure the Blink Drive and his victory over Pyr.

And we’ve got some tidbits of info after indulging in a screener.

Reunited and it feels so … awkward
It’s no surprise where alternate Three was taking Two. Friday’s opening scene delivers her to Ryo in what has a Han Solo-Jabba the Hutt vibe. He wants the Blink Drive and thinks she’ll be the bait to bring the rest of the team to him to make a swap. Ryo is right, of course, but he’s not all-powerful. It seems someone would like to see him unseated as Emperor … but who? And, if you’ve been paying attention, you know alternate Boone was working for someone else, meaning Ryo owes someone.

Misaki is memorable
Kudos to Ellen Wong for making such an impression playing Misaki. What could have been a one-note character is deeply layered and it’s always hard to figure out whether she’s in full support of Ryo or not. Misaki and Six share a great scene in Friday’s episode; he may be bigger than her in stature, but she doesn’t back down from a verbal or physical fight.

The Android makes a decision
Victor gave the Android an upgrade and she’s been ruminating on whether to use it or not. Guess what she decides to do? Read Joseph Mallozzi’s blog entry for Aug. 15 to get a hint, if you dare.

Ryo and Three’s fireside chat
Perhaps the most compelling, fascinating dialogue in the episode is reserved for this pair. Secrets, desires, betrayals and a surprising death are uncovered over a very, very old bottle of booze. I’ve missed Four/Ryo’s interactions with his old crewmates and it’s good to see Alex Mallari Jr. back in their sandbox, laying bare their shocking histories.

Dark Matter airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Space.

From Kelly Townsend of The TV Junkies:

Link: Dark Matter: Joseph Mallozzi talks “The Dwarf Star Conspiracy”
“Anthony can do it all; he can do comedy, those really nice character scenes we see him do with Sarah (Natalie Brown) and obviously the Android in the end of last episode, and he can do action scenes. This is a totally different side of Three that we’ve never seen before and, yet again, Anthony Lemke nails it.” Continue reading.

Link: Joe Mallozzi Discusses All Things Dark Matter

From Candice Michelle Goodwin of Telfie.com:

Link Joe Mallozzi Discusses All Things Dark Matter
“There is definitely a 5-year plan for the show. If season 1 was Secrets and Surprises, and season 2 was Risks and Redemption, and season 3 is Victories and Vengeances, season 4 will be Androids and Aliens. And you can’t get any more sci-fi than that. As for season 5 – which, if everything works out, should be the show’s final 13-episode installment – I have a plan to tie up all the storylines. I even have the show’s final sequence in my head.” Continue reading.
