Following on from Six’s impetuous leave-taking last time on Syfy’s Dark Matter, the crew will pick up exactly where they left off this week – hoarding supplies, sniping at each other, and generally keeping those secret secrets secret.

This time it’s Four’s turn to take an unexpected leave of absence from the Raza.

Unlike Six, revenge isn’t so much an agenda here, as getting an opportunity to tell his brother the real truth about what happened to their father, namely that it was little bro’s manipulative and power hungry mother who killed their Dad, and not Four.

Honestly, we’re not quite sure how little bro was ever going to take that news, but as Four soon discovers, getting a private audience with the Emperor is not as easy as he might have thought.

Meanwhile, back on the Raza, One is looking at Three with fresh (hate filled) eyes, Five’s feeling unloved, and the Android’s sure she’s got a fault in her programming … somewhere.

We’ve seen the episode a little earlier than most (thanks Syfy!), and have some interesting tidbits, spoilery bits and pieces and some speculation to share, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Read on for our weekly list, and join us in the comments to let us know your thoughts on the series.


Ghost in the Machine?

The Android has been spending some alone time obsessively diagnosing herself for a fault in her programming. This week, she’s convinced there’s something there that oughtn’t to be, and surmises that only a full reboot can erase those annoying ‘personality’ glitches.

Noooo! Please don’t erase your personality, Android!

Phew! It’s a lucky thing Three is on hand to sway her from this drastic course of action with some gentle encouragement.

“I’ll be damned if I have to start over with a whole nother robot,” he barks, dismissing the suggestion out of the gate.

Thanks Three!

The larger question remains. Why is the Android’s personality evolving, and who programmed her that way?
