Episode Summary

EDIT
Red
AIRED:
Max takes on an army of superhuman soldiers in an episode amped up on action sequences. The trouble starts when Logan recruits his favorite biker chick to protect a Federal witness with vital info on local corruption. But the operation hits a snag after Max realizes that the guy she's guarding is a face from the not-so-distant---and very painful---past, and that those who want him dead may have plans for her as well.moreless

    Four writers. Really? Not exactly a complicated episode, the overabundance of scribes may have contributed to the sometimes jarring storytelling, but at least this one has quite a few moments of hilarity (check out Max's reaction when she arrives back at the protection house to see her ole pal Bruno enjoying a nice lap dance). And there's a nice twist at the end followed, by a rare fight scene where it takes Max more than just a punch here and a few kicks there to win the fight, as she's taken down a peg or three. While the story may be wafer thin, the one-liners and comedic timing keep it fresh and interesting. Dark Angel manages another solid episode after a brief slip up last time.moreless

    this episode was extremlly good, i was very glad that they brought bruno back, he made the show very funny and enjoyable. unforunatlly he had to betray max in the end to the evil unbeatable super guys. i for one do not like these new bad guys, they just seem very immortal to me. i will be extremlly happy when max finally beats these guys. as for the max/logan relationship i was sad to see that nothing happened, they really should just get a move on with that. i was also kinda dissapointed that max's bike messinger friends had a very small part in this episode. but overall this was a very good episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Max is in the bath tub and reaches for the phone, you can see she is wearing a skin tight strapless shirt.

    • When Max finds the strippers giving lap dances to Bruno, she tosses the pizza box (which is supposed to have a pizza inside). But when she drops the box, it drops very lightly in the air and when it hits the ground, there's a very light sound. Are pizzas really that light?

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Logan: They got you good.
      Max: I need to get my ass kicked once in a while... just to keep me real.

    • Johannessen: You've two choices - you can come quietly...
      Max (interrupting): Bite me.
      Johannessen: ...or not.

    • Original Cindy (about Max): She's at the doctor's. The good news is, they caught it before it turned into chronic multiple progressive brain dysfunction syndrome.

    • Original Cindy (to Logan): Look, you want to be an international man of mystery, that's your dealio. But you get my homegirl jammed up - I'm gonna beat on your ass... chair or no chair.

    • Bruno: You must think I'm dumb, huh?
      Max: Do you really want me to answer that?

    • Bruno: I'm bored.
      Max: Watch television.
      Bruno: Well, what's the point? You won't let me order any movies.
      Max: Hose Monkeys: The Next Generation is not a movie. It's excrement.
      Bruno: Easy. The leading lady is a personal friend of mine.
      Max: Dinner's on it's way. Why don't you take a nap or something till it gets here?
      Bruno: I can't sleep.
      Max: Do you want me to put you under again?
      Bruno: I'm going to take a shower.
      Max: Take your best shot, but some dirt just doesn't wash.
      Bruno: Why don't you come help me?

    • Max: Hey, Bruno. (Max hold up a pair of handcuffs)
      Bruno: Uh huh? (Bruno turns around from the door) Oh. Oh yes. I should have figured you for a little kinkster. Yeah, I'm game. Two people alone in a room for people just passing through, aren't we?(Walking towards Max) It's me. It's you, looking hotter than you've ever looked. (Raising his hands up getting ready to touch Max) It's like deja freakin' vu. Isn't it? (Max puts the handcuffs on Bruno and hooks him to the radiator) Oh, that's not a turn-on! No, no. Ow!

    • Max (in the bathtub after she hangs up the phone with Logan): This guy need to relax. (She slides under the water)

    • Max: Well, that's not been my experience. (Testing the water with her finger) I mean, men always have to stop and talk. They need to hear what a good job they're doing or whatever and then they do this weird cuddle thing.
      Kendra: Not all men.
      Max: I got to meet this guy.
      Kendra: Oh, you've met him. (Backing up)
      Max: Really? Who?
      Kendra: I'm not letting you near him. (Closing the curtain with a smile)

    • Kendra (as Max pours water into a pot on the stove): Our evening starts off naked 'cause all we do is get busy. All night without pause.
      Max: You can't bang the gong for 12 hours.
      Kendra: You can, Max. You so can.

    • Max: Just like I thought - It's that idiot in 12B. (Pulling the jumper cables off the power box) Where does he get off thinking that he can jack our power on bath night?
      Kendra: Says he needs it for his space heater so his cannabis crop doesn't die.
      Max: Tough. I'm going to have a hot bath. His weed's going to have to chill. (Hooking up another set of jumper cables and grabbing the other ones from Kendra) I mean we stole the power first. (Tossing the cables on a barrel) It belongs to us.
      Kendra: Totally.

    • Max: You don't have to tell me to be afraid. I'm already there.

    • Bruno: I'm serious! I gotta call my kid.
      Max: You actually have offspring? Is it considered Homo Sapiens?

    • Bruno: You got a thing for tying up guys, don't you?
      Max: I save it all for you, Bruno.

    • Logan: Where are you?
      Max: I was in heaven, but you're bringing me right back down to earth with this urgent tone thing.

    • Bruno: The towels are scratchy! There's not water pressure! I can piss harder than this!

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Original Cindy (to Logan): Look, you want to be an international man of mystery, that's your dealio. But you get my homegirl jammed up - I'm gonna beat on your ass... chair or no chair.

      This is a reference to the 1997 film Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery starring Mike Myers.
