DARK MATTER: Exclusive Scoop on “We Were Family”
BY Jennifer Griffin
Published 6 years ago
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.
Should I Stay or Should I Go?
If you’ve been wondering how long it would take before the Raza crew started to get antsy about their new shipmates then this episode is for you. While Nyx confidently proves her worth (and then some) to the crew this week, and Doctor Devon’s medical skills present a unique opportunity to retain the services of a medical expert, Two continues to have reservations about the duplicitous Arax. (You may recall that Arax is secretly in contact with the mysterious Alicia Reynaud, a woman of means who has a lazer-focus interest in Five.)
How long can Arax continue his underhanded shenanigans? Will appealing to Three’s ‘intelligence,’ or suggesting to Two that she probably shouldn’t trust her own crew gain him any brownie points? The answers to these questions and more are coming this Friday.
Meanwhile, if you’ve been missing Mr Means-Well, aka Six, don’t worry. He’ll be back this week. However, the stay or go dilemma will also extend to this former Galactic Authority cop.
