    dale is sold as a slave girl to ming. barin and flash come to the rescue. ming is obsessed with prophecies that he listens to them. when barin sacrifices himself to save the lives of his people. flash feels bad for him that he figures out a plan to make ming think that he doesn't have to execute barin. the scene where flash pretends to be priest looks so funny. this episode had something in it, it feels like a full episode. the scenes inside the palace of ming is almost like a space opera, it works out well. the story feels adventurous.moreless

    Above average episode, certainly a lot better than last week's episode but still decidedly lacking in a good plot. The overall plot is OK, but the little plots that further the main plot are simply not convincing. Ming, who only a few episodes ago killed a man in cold blood for talking to his daughter, now seems to be happy to talk to Dale. By the way, Dale being presented as a new member of Ming's harem feels a little repetetive. It's the second time so far they've used this storyline.



    I did like the bit about Rankol and the monks and references to Flash' fate. That was a new twist...moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Aura: Why would I tell you?
      Flash: 'Cause you kinda like me.
      Aura: I don't want you thinking that I'm always gonna do whatever you tell me.

    • Flash: The reason Ming is so determined to bring Barin down is the prophecy, right? He is willing to murder the Verdens because of it.
      Dale: So if all is about the prophecy, what if we can change the prophecy?

    • Aura: Our best cook has been sent to the tunnels to dig?
      Ming: I imagine we'll get by with those who remain.

    • Rankol: Yes, as you say, "heresy." But we cannot speak of it. If Ming were to learn that our sacred chamber had been compromised, he may begin to question the entire prophesy. I have no doubt that he would turn on our order.
      Dolon: You suggest that we allow this to happen?
      Rankol: I suggest more than that. I believe that this was meant to happen.
      Dolon: The Day of False Truth? Now?
      Rankol: Prophecy from generations ago speaks of this day, when an uninitiated man would bring forth inspired speech. Is that not what has happened?
      Dolon: You think this visitor from Earth is that man. That's why you asked for my help to keep him alive.
      Rankol: Flash Gordon had his chance to escape to safety, and yet he returned. His fate is bound to ours in some way.
      Dolon: Can he be the one we have waited for?
      Rankol: Only time will tell for certain. But one thing we do know...he has passed the first test.

    • Baylin: The females would be attracted to your scent. They will come to a man. A woman they will attack. Your perspiration will be used as bait. Now, it will help if you remain frightened.
      Flash: Well, consider me well-prepared, then. All right. (sticks hand into hole, then withdraws it quickly) Yeah, say I get bitten by one of these things, all right? Is there any, you know, magical antidote, or a chance of you sucking out the venom, anything like that that would keep me from dying, anything?
      Baylin: I can carry your body back home to be honored by your family.
      Flash: That's very reassuring, Baylin. Thank you. (clears throat nervously)
