I enjoyed this episode but I'm worried about the direction the show is taking. One is dead (though I'm really hoping that it's a major fake-out and my favorite character and crush is still alive), Six is now in stasis, and Five had no problem ordering the Android to murder a lot of people. Those three were more or less the moral heart of the show. With One dead, Six in stasis for who knows how long, and Five having no problem ordering the deaths of people, the show is taking a darker turn.
I understand that Five was upset and not happy with the GA authorities, but she could have just as easily ordered the Android to incapacitate them. There was no reason to murder all of them. Yes, we've been shown that there are corrupt elements in the GA but that doesn't mean they all are. Six wasn't. I doubt he's alone in being the only noble person in a corrupt society.
The crew being detained in the prison lasted just as long as I wanted it to. I was afraid we were looking at another episode of them being in jail but instead they escaped rather quickly. The escape was definitely full of bad-ass moments and proved just why the Raza crew is the Raza crew.
it kinda floors me that they said "Yeah, space samurais is a definite keeper!"
I really wish Christopher still posted here because he would have a lot more to say about the space samurais. I know it was a concept he was not fond of. Sure, they look cool and I like sword-fighting, but there's no real reason for it. Why does a future empire employ swords as their main weapon of choice? There might be a good cultural reason for it but one hasn't been provided whatsoever.
I wonder who that woman is that wants Five and which of the new characters is a mole working for her?
I really wish I had re-watched season 1 because I can't remember which corporation is which and which one likes the crew and which one doesn't.
Not what I watch this show for.
True. I'm hoping that the show will even out now that the crew is back on the ship. My hope is that Six's stasis is just a very temporary thing and this isn't a way to write out his character for a long time.
I did appreciate Six's arc in these two episodes as he comes to realize that the GA can be just as corrupt and bad, if not worse, than the crew of the Raza. He's a great character, and the fact that he was going to stay behind to face the music says a lot about him.
