DIE ME DICHOTOMY
Teleplay by David Kemper
Directed by Rowan Woods


PLOT
The crew seek out help to heal the burnt-out Moya and to remove Scorpius's chip from Crichton's brain. But Crichton's likely to die – and the help may be far too late anyway.

REVIEW

Farscape

Stuff everything else, is Aeryn dead or not? Partly because this is the end of a season but mostly because this is Farscape, you just cannot be reassured that Claudia Black will return next year.

But let's examine the evidence. Too much was made of how those bodies were frozen the instant before death so you have to infer that it was a clue, that Aeryn was similarly chilled. Also, Crais and Talyn's sudden interest in keyrings has to go somewhere and if not to Aeryn then whom?

So the likelihood of her coming back is thankfully high – and it's at times like this that you appreciate how important to the show Black is. While it is a true ensemble and only Zhaan ever seems to be wasted, it's Black's Aeryn and Browder's Crichton that make the show.

Especially, this time, with that thoroughly spooky impersonation of Scorpius that Browder-as-Crichton did. And leaving your hero on an operating table with his brains hanging out, his speech destroyed and his doctor dead must surely stand out as a cliffhanger and a half.



DID YOU NOTICE?

  • The ice tunnels Aeryn and Crichton/Scorpius flew through looked like the wormhole effect everyone seems to be seeking.Farscape

  • What are the odds that Moya's crew would find the same healers that Scorpius used? Especially in the now laughably named Uncharted Territories where presumably there is no equivalent of NHS Direct.

  • Why didn't Stark and D'Argo just wear face masks when they were coating Moya with that ointment?

  • Is there anything that Scorpius can't survive?
