WARNING: Dark Matter Spoilers
One of our favorite parts of this second season of Dark Matter is a simple thing. It’s figuring out what the titles of the episodes mean and which characters they involve. Favorite so far: “We Voted Not to Space You.” But there’s one or twoÂ coming up thatÂ has a good chance at becomingÂ our new favorite.
Fun fact: Fans were given the chance to help name the episodes before the beginning of the season. It’s a nice touch on DM creator Joseph Mallozzi’s part to include us inÂ on such a fun decision.
Another nice touch is finally learning more about Nyx’s backstory and, of course, it’s twisted and heartbreaking. We knew her instincts were impeccable. Too impeccable. So something had to be up. It turns out, she and her brother, Milo, were part of a group of people kidnapped, drugged and forced into this psychic collective conscious experiment by an evil company looking to use them for their gifts. Think the Borg from the Star Trek: TNG universe. But they’re human. And they’re not up to no good. They’re being used and abused. And it’s just so incredibly sad.
Nyx played puppet master in order for the Raza Crew to unknowingly rescue her brother from the clutches of Electus. In the end, he gave himself up in order to keep everyone safe. But he knew he couldn’t go back under so he killed himself. HEARTBREAKING. Even though we didn’t know Nyx’s brother for long, his loss was felt. She’s definitely feeling the loss but it’s unclear whether she understands what kind of mindset her brother was in when he returned to Electus. Don’t think she does, which means there’s more pain in her future when she finds out he’s gone.
Meanwhile, Devon seems like he’s a full on drug addict. And then there’s Two. At the very end of “We Should Have Seen This Coming,” she looked shaky. What is going on with her? Inquiring minds want to know.
Let’s talk tonight. Three, Four, and Five undertake a dangerous mission. StargateÂ TV alum David Hewlett guest stars once again.
Official Synopsis for “She’s One of Them Now”
With the help of their handler, Tabor Calchek (David Hewlett), three crew members infiltrate a high-security facility via clone.
FiveÂ things you need to know about “She’s One of Them Now”
- We love and adore the men on this show but the women rule all, especially in this episode, where they turn out to beÂ the most valuable players
- Five steps back up in a big, big way. She’s so smart. She may even be the most badass and integral person in the Raza Crew and that’s saying a lot because Two, Nyx and the Android are monumentally beautiful, badass and brainy as well. Let’s just call it a tie with all four being equally fierce. The Rio Olympics has the Final Five? We’re going to call Two, Five, Nyx and the Android the Fierce Four from here on out.
- Jason Priestley directed this episode. The Beverly Hills 90210 alum currently stars on the Canadian series, Private Eyes, but he’s one to never let his directing skills go rusty. Wonder if he’ll ever guest star on Dark Matter someday.
- A character that guest starred earlier this season makes a return appearance. And we’re going to gush now because we didn’t then: Kris Holden-RiedÂ ofÂ Lost Girl fame. Yes, his character, Galactic Authority Inspector Kierken, is not a good guy (at least not to us). It’s still great to see him. Hope we see him some more.
- Devon gets a little more play in this episode, you might even learn a little more about him.
Dark Matter airs Fridays at 10/9c on Syfy.
