That was a pretty good finale. It beats the season 1 finale, which had the crew basically just wandering the halls of the Raza and accusing each other of being the traitor.
They definitely left a lot of the characters in dire straits, huh? I wonder if Nyx is really dead? I wouldn't put it past them considering they killed One and Devon.
Five's relationship with the android (forgot his name) was sweet and I was sad to see him jettison himself from the station and get blown up. I guess now we know how the station was destroyed in the alternate universe. With Five dead there was no one there to convince the android not to follow through with his orders.
Five definitely looked older in her businesswoman disguise.
I was not expecting Kierken to die like that. He seemed like he would be an on-going threat to the crew, or maybe even a potential ally down the road. I have to admit, Dark Matter certainly went kill crazy this season.
Ryo's officially irredeemable after this. Full-on intentional mass murder just to help your personal political situation is several dozen steps too far.
Oh, I agree. Even if most of the people make it off the station he's gone too far. The other Raza crew members won't forgive him for blowing up the station and probably causing a corporate war that they were trying so hard to stop. Plus he stole the Blink Drive and Misaki did (maybe) kill Nyx.
While it sucks that the crew lost the Blink Drive to Ryo, it's probably a good thing because it gave the crew way too much of an edge on everyone else in the galaxy. Of course, I doubt they'll let Ryo get away with keeping it so they might wind up with it again.
I am curious whether the show will try to keep Ryo around on a permanent basis or if he will just become a recurring character. After losing One, Devon, and now possibly Nyx the crew has been reduced quite a bit.
Two's promise to let Three pick a place to rob after they saved the galaxy was pretty funny.
Were we supposed to recognize whoever it was helping Three at the end? The fuzzy image looked like the Ferrous guy to me, so I was confused as to whether it was supposed to be him coming back for some reason, or someone brand new.
You know, I'm not sure. At first I too thought it was the Ferrous guy but that doesn't make a lot of sense. He has no reason to come back since he believed the station would be destroyed. I didn't recognize the person so he could be a new character but maybe someone else will.
I really don't like these short seasons most of the time.
I don't mind them and sometimes they actually work in a show's favor. With this season, though, additional episodes probably would have helped. Well, that or a tighter focus. This season felt a little lost, with the show just kind of meandering all over the place. What was the point of introducing a conspiracy to kill One's wife and then kill off One if it's never going to be brought up again? Why kill off Devon? Why build up the Seers and then do basically nothing with them?
I felt like there should have been more done with the corporations and the Ishida war. Those became the most important arcs at the end but so little build up was done that they didn't have the impact that they should have.
Season 2 felt like it was a setting the stage season. The writers introduced a lot of new concepts and changes that will impact the series as a whole, but didn't do much here. I know the writers have said that they have the entire series mapped out and that's great but they need to make the individual episodes more engaging and work on their world-building.
I had a desire to re-watch Stargate: Atlantis
after watching Torri Higginson in this episode.
