The Devil in the Dark
A killer is pursued; at the same time, Nolan and Datak come to blows over an ancient ritual.
In the first of not-so-great scenes, Irisa intervenes where she was directly told not to. The point they are trying to make is clear: Irisa has a violent streak, she has empathy for other living beings, she is not a huge fan of projectiles, and Tommy, the deputy sheriff, has a neat sense of humor.
Now between you, me, and the internet, I enjoy the muted tones of the Castithan home moments. White on white on white on white is an interesting choice, but this show pulls it off. Meanwhile Datak and Stahma show themselves to be a little more familial than the audience might be ready for at home. Be glad of the 9pm time slot.
The underground caverns (no spoilers here folks – not my schtick) is awe-imbuing. Ben, the villain from the pilot, is back causing shenanigans, and the scene is otherwise anticlimactic. This is a problem – this was supposed to be the climax of the episode. There should have been a sense of drama, there should have been a sense of dread. Instead…nothing near it.
“Oh look. The bad, bad thing might happen.”
The shady character from the pilot came back. It is a bit too convenient that no one else ever sees this guy. He drives a pre-Terraform car…it’s ‘barf green.’ How does NO ONE notice this dude? It’s not a TARDIS, people! C’mon, he’s wearing steampunk sunglasses in a sci-fi show!
