If this is the series finale of Dark Matter, I’m going to be incredibly upset. Co-creators Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie have created a wonderful world jam-packed with interesting characters with plenty of story still to tell. Mallozzi himself posted a blog entry stating Season 4 would be about aliens and androids, and I think that would be pretty bad-ass.
Alas, we’ve arrived at the Season 3 finale, “Nowhere to Go.” Written by Paul Mullie and directed by Ron Murphy, the Raza crew take their shot at ending the corporate war for good. But it won’t be easy. When is it ever easy with this group? Aside from revealing if Two executed Ryo or not, the instalment would, I hoped, catch up with Two, Five and Six reacting to what Ryo told them about their pasts (Two has a child! Five has a sister! Six was betrayed!). Three, meanwhile, doesn’t remember what Ryo told him—that Three was responsible for Sarah’s death—because his clone was killed and the knowledge died with it.
Here is Space’s official episode synopsis for “Nowhere to Go.”
The crew of the Raza unite Ferrous Corps’ enemies in an effort to end the corporate war.
And, as always, we’ve got a few non-spoiler treats to offer in advance.
Does Two execute Ryo?
Not telling. But you’ll find out less than two minutes into the broadcast.
The Raza amasses an army
It may be a little ragtag and not everyone trusts each other, but this motley crew could very well pull off the unthinkable. Right? Also, this episode features some truly incredible CGI.
Two’s attention strays
Remember when Boone kidnapped Two and took her to Ryo? Yeah, she does too and is itching to get a little revenge and has the opportunity. As usual, Three isn’t sure Two should be focusing on anything else aside from Ferrous Corp., especially when they make a major discovery about the galaxy’s bad guys. The discovery leads to a chat with Truffault, which means more airtime for Torri Higginson! Also guesting this week? Alexandra Ordolis in a key role and Ennis Esmer as “Beauty and Brains” Wexler. As for the mysterious Kryden, the Android finds a hard drive in the lock box Ryo talked about. The drive has a file named Kryden on it.
Who was in the photo Five was looking at last week?
We won’t ruin the surprise, but we’ve seen this person before. Also, Five delivers an impassioned plea to Six that had us dabbing our eyes.
The season finale of Dark Matter airs Friday at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Space.
