  • An average episode, I watched it only yesterday, and already I forget most of the plot. But the plot wasn't important, anyway...

    Beautiful! And no, I don't mean the episode. Da'an is one of the most complex and confusing chracters I have encountered in television. And perhaps, also one of the easiest to identify with, which is surprising, considering he's an alien. The other characters refer to him as "he" the actress is a "she", while technically he's an "it". But, while confusing and hard to figure out, you quickly come to realize that it hardly matters. As with a previous episode in a previous season, called "The Cloister", this was an average episode with an above average moment for Da'an. I am still trying to figure out if the episode was average because it just wasn't a very good episode, or if it came off as average because Da'an was just so good. Da'an, on one hand, is so very human. He has weaknesses, he makes mistakes, he has regrets. Just in an episode prior to this one, he had a drug addiction. In this episode, we see him encounter one of his main weaknesses, Zo'or. In the episode "The Cloister" it was reveiled that Zo'or was Da'an's child. With that revelation, a whole lot of things suddently made sense. Like why Da'an continually puts up with Zo'or's conspiracies and plots to kill him, for instance. In this episode, and frustratingly not until the end, Da'an once again comes to Zo'or's aid. He decides not to turn Zo'or in for murdering a fellow Taelon, despite that same Taelon having told him before his death that Da'an needs to forget that Zo'or is his child, for the greater good. The other Taelon, whose name I can't remember, reminded Da'an that Zo'or had his own unpleasant agenda, and that Da'an had to choose sides. Da'an admited to Zo'or that he could not do it. It is clear that Da'an loves his child, despite all Zo'or's faults and his appearant lack of love for his parent. If I was being honest, I would have to admit that I did indeed watch this show mostly because of Da'an. Seasons four and five are not that great, by any stretch of the imagination, but I just can't let it go. In the first episode of this season, when it was thought for a time that Da'an was dead, I very nearly stopped watching. Da'an facinates me. He's like Yoda, old and wise and someone to look up to. But there's more, because he's beautiful (makes you wonder what the actress looks like without all the 'alien' makeup), kind, softspoken, and caring, but with a sharp mind. Certainly he is one television character who has earned my respect and admiration.moreless
