Once again, a fantastically well written and acted episode of a superb show called Farscape.
In this episode, hey continued Aeryn’s storyline about being stabbed in ‘A Bug’s Life’. Now she’s ill and going to die any minute now. John wants to save her and the only way is by bringing a donor thingy that will cure her again.
John leaves with Chiana to the peacekeeper sector in the neighbourhood. Once again they act to be peacekeepers.
In this episode we also meet two new characters, Scorpius and Stark. We also see two known ones back, Crais and Gillian.
John and Chiana are almost caught plenty of times but saved by Gillian. She still has obvious feelings for John but he doesn’t have them back, he has already fallen inlove with Aeryn.
Meanwhile there is someone there, Scorpius who sensed that John isn’t a peacekeeper.
He arrests him and puts him on a chair, then he and a machine go into John’s mind, but something is blocking. They do find about the alien in ’A Human Reaction’ that gave him hints on how to make a wormhole and eventually took him where he is.
But the machine can’t go back to earth. They also see the captain Crais that wants to kill John so they decide to call him.
When John is put in a prison he meets Stark, he is also used on the chair and is completely nuts.
Meanwhile Chiana escapes with the machine to help Aeryn, and they are right on time because Aeryn was dying.
Gillian who has been helping them put the alarm and now they want to know who did it and go into John’s brains.
To be continued…
This was a very exciting and amazingly well acted episode. A great first part of a two-parter. And yet another Farscape classic.
