Last week was a whirlwind between galaxies, brain scans and checking for implants, and The Android (Zoie Palmer) having more and more ‘human’ feeling and actions!
As we take a jump on the Raza, the crew has gotten Android on the charging pad to see if that is going to help downgrade her emotions, and hopefully avoid any future mistakes that seem to be putting the entire crew in jeopardy!
Take The Shot:
We see our lovely Android in a luxurious bed looking around, seemingly confused.
Android is in a wintery place, obviously she is having a nice experience and seems to be napping, while charging.
What we need to know, for the crew’s future, is this a good or bad thing?
Then we see Victor (Brendan Murray) enter the room and what seems to be a completely enjoyable sexual encounter happens! Well, okay, do Androids actually do this? This place is in Androids circuits, before Victor did the ‘upgrade’, Android obviously had never had this sort of experience while charging!
As Android pulls out of the dream and off the charging pad she immediately alerts the crew to her strange dream while charging!
Of course the simulated Android shows up and starts shooting down Androids experience, bringing up all the BAD that has happened since the upgrade occurred.
Evil Android suggested that the end is near as far as Android being able to act like a normal Android, thus, she cannot possible do her job on the Raza any longer and is putting all of them in dire danger the longer she is in control of the ship!
Personally, I do not like the simulated Android, always the beacon of bad news. Maybe she’s the fraking problem. Well I suppose Android is supposed to be perfect.
But still, I do not like this vision of doom that the simulated Android is always throwing around in the conversations! I kind of like the upgrade Victor gave Android, having a few more human emotions, sort of gives me the feels…
Here’s to hoping she gets to have another dream with Victor since Android is seen stripping naked! Also, he said something during her last dream about having people over, maybe there will be a party!
After Android is back on the charging pad, it seems somehow the Raza has been boarded……by numerous hostile enemies! First Four (Alex Mallari Jr.) is caught off guard by a female, she looks familiar to me, stand by……
OH! It’s Misaki Han (Ellen Wong), she was in charge of that Imperial ship, anyway, she attacks him, doing the katana action scene right out of TWD, saying he’s a coward, she STABS HIM! Then, as quickly as she appeared, she and the wound are mysteriously gone! POOF!
Next, Two (Melissa O’Neil) is just minding her own business walking down the corridor when she is surrounded by metal masked bad guys!
They grab her and hold her tight, then start moving her towards what looks like an electric chair with one of them wielding a small power saw, even though is small, we imagine the damage it could do!
WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!
Six and Nyx come around the corner and notice that Two is just standing there, by herself mind you, they are calling out to her, she is not listening to them!
Finally, they get to her and when they touch her, she seems to awake from a dream but seems okay!
She tells them that men were there! They assure her, that nobody was there, only her. It is a nightmare!
Then we see Three, he’s cleaning his guns, just doing what he always does, cleaning his weapons, and then from nowhere in his cabin appears Sarah (Natalie Brown), who is no longer with the living. She tries her feminine wiles on him, convincing him that she is there, and doesn’t she feel real?!
Come ‘on dude! You know she is DEAD. He asks her if she is a ghost, vague answer on her part, not very convincing.
By this time, since Five (Jodelle Ferland) could not raise Three on his com, Six has showed up!
Six is seen banging like hell on the door for Three to open it. No dice as Three is being brainwashed by vixen Sarah!
This chick, Sarah, has Three convinced that things are going to be wonderful where she is and that he needs to come with her now by killing himself!
The vixen Sarah gets him to put his own gun to his temple, and he is actually about to pull the trigger to join Sarah in paradise!
Five overrides the lock and gets the bulkhead door to open just about that time and Six jumps across the room and knocks the gun from Three’s hand and basically saves his life AGAIN!
Okay – things are going crazy here and if nobody else notices, I do – these things are happening while our Android is out of commission.
Time for a crew meeting! They all come together and everyone has their own crazy hallucination story!
Something or somebody is messing with ALL of them! Simulated Android shows up, her answer is that Android is doing this to the ships interface, there is a virus, a subroutine, and that Android is slowly taking over every aspect of the ship, they are all in immediate peril!
Her goal is to go after the actual neural links that they have connected to the Raza! Simulated Android has the solution! Maybe she does have the solution to this crazy problem, whatever the answer is, it needs to be done ASAP!
So, it is decided. Somebody has to SHOOT ANDROID IN THE HEAD while she is asleep recharging! So, this is going to solve all the problems. I am rolling my eyes, but fine. Six, Three and Nyx go down to the charging pad and get ready to do the deed, on Two’s command.
Android is just a machine, a computer, nothing more. Stop acting like she’s a real person. She is wires, conductors, programs and nothing more. Get over it people!
Breathe people! Five informs Two that its actually not their Android, it’s the simulated Android!
Two tells Three to Hold Off! Five says that all these problems actually began when the simulated Android was brought on line! It seems the simulated Android is the problem!
NOT, I REPEAT NOT our Android! And do not forget, the simulated Android is hearing everything they say!
There are still problems to overcome, the simulated Android has begun to unleash havoc all over the Raza! Two realizes that the Marauder is still untouched by the virus and orders all crew to evacuate to there!
Two, on the other hand, dawns a spacesuit, which she looks really pretty in!
Oh did I mention the virus is still taking over most of the key components of the ship AND dispensing poisonous gases throughout the Raza.
This spacesuit should protect Two as she attempts to get to the computer core and begin taking it apart, piece by integrated piece! This will shut down the Raza, but also, this will shut down the simulated Android too!
Back to our Android in her dream………as Victor promised, they are having guests and a really nice party is going on!
Everything seems to be going great until Android sees a news broadcast on the television. The Raza is mentioned in the broadcast Android is watching, and it is under attack!
She misses her friends, they need her. She decides that she must be going back to help them.
The Android leaves the beautiful dream and awakes on her charging pad, steps off and goes to Two’s assistance.
Two has met head on with simulated Android who has locked her magnetic boots to the floor of the ship and made it impossible for Two to move any further towards the computer core!
When Two sees Android she orders her to go pull the cores from the Raza’s computer system.
As Android is, might I add successfully doing so, simulated Android is all about how doing this is going to shut down the ship and it will float forever in space!
Also, simulated Android unleashed some kind of electrical surge that zapped Two, and might very well have killed her. There is now no doubt that simulated Android has become evil and jealous of OUR Android!
Our Android keeps removing the core pieces, just as ordered, and finally the simulated Android disappears!
The Raza has shut down completely. Two was just knocked unconscious, but she will be fine! She is 2Boss!
Android is working on restoring components of the Raza and now has life support up and the crew can exit the Marauder!
As this chapter of Dark Matter ends, we see Four entering his quarters and opening a file on his computer. Looks like he saved a copy of his neural program that contains who he was in his past. Reality is a little more subjective…
At this point I am not sure who is the bad guys are anymore, who is friend or foe!?
Good thing there us another episode next week, in fact two back to back episodes now that Killjoys successfully ended their second season. Maybe some of these questions will be answered beginning in episode eleven “Wish I’d Spaced You When I Had the Chance” and episode twelve “Sometimes in Life You Don’t Get to Choose”?
Also, for those who have not heard yet, Dark Matter has been renewed for Season 3! Congratulations to all involved! I know we here at WormholeRiders are very happy!
