If Syfy’s Dark Matter has taught us anything it’s that understanding your past doesn’t necessarily set you free from it.
Ever since Five (Jodelle Ferland) helped Four (Alex Mallari Jr.) fill in those missing blanks in his memory, the crew’s most silent and serious member has been plotting his revenge on those who murdered his father and stole his throne.
In episode 9, Four will step his plans up a notch, abandoning the ship and his crew mates in order to embark on a mission to reclaim his past.
However, when he unknowingly walks into an ambush on a remote, abandoned mining planet, his crewmates are forced to race against time in order to time save him.
Last week, it was Six’s turn to leave the crew feeling open to a possible ambush. Now, Four’s rash actions will leave the others wondering whether they should rescue him or let fate run its deadly course.
The episode airs Friday August 7 (10-11 pm ET/PT) on Syfy.
