Following three episodes of frenetic pacing, surprise character deaths, new enemies and new shipmates, Syfy’s Dark Matter finally takes a moment to breathe in Friday’s upcoming “We Were Family.”
But don’t be fooled into thinking this is a filler episode. It’s not. As is a by now standard procedure for this show, new and unforeseen developments will present themselves to the crew (and the audience) soon enough. And just as we were all lying low and taking stock, too!
The episode will see newcomers Nyx, Devon and Arax getting to know the Raza crew, in addition to testing their mettle.
Meanwhile Three encounters his old crew but can’t decide if they mean him harm or … something else. (You’ll uncover the significance of the metal rocket ship from Three’s personal belongings this week too).
You might be interested to note that Six is awake, post-op, and having a come-to-jesus moment with the people he betrayed. And in an effort to learn more about the human condition, we’ll see Android biting off more than she can chew.
We’ve seen the episode a little earlier than most, thanks to our friends at Syfy, and have a number of teasers to share with you. As usual, we avoid outright spoilers and plot points that would more than likely spoil your enjoyment on the night. However, while we consider our article ‘teaser-ish’ in nature, we know not everyone will feel the same. For that reason, we urge you to proceed with caution.
Remember those happy memories stored in Five’s mind featuring a carefree young child playing in his parents barn? For a hot minute we all thought they belonged to One, the seemingly most well-adjusted of the Raza crew, before we discovered he was a super rich son of a super rich industrialist who had probably never stepped foot inside a barn, let alone encouraged his child to play in one.
In Friday’s “We are Family” we’ll see exactly who owns that particular memory set, along with a whole lot more. In fact, the episode kicks off with a disturbing childhood flashback that will probably make you love one of the crew even more. Wait? Is that even possible?
