Picture if you Will
Teleplay by Peter Neale
Directed by Andrew Prowse


The references to Maldis being dispersed – of which he kindly reminds Crichton in a "New Viewers Start Here" kind of moment – are to do with the season 1 episode That Old Black Magic.

Last time Maldis was around, there were references to The Wizard of Oz and this time, with all of Crichton's mind to pick from, Maldis chose to refer to The Sound of Music.

How modified is Crichton's Farscape module? We see it docked to Kyvan's commerce ship and while Aeryn does regard it as junk, she's not unwilling to fly it away while he runs hell for leather in the opposite direction so its speed must have been radically improved.

After D'Argo sees the picture saying that he'll be killed by a long pointy thing, he only goes and stands in front of a long pointy thing. Some people are just asking for trouble.

When D'Argo is 'killed', a clue that he may not be dead is nothing of him is left behind – not even a spot of blood on the long pointy thing. When Crichton 'dies', there's nothing left. When Zhaan goes the same way, there's nothing. So why does Chiana's necklace get left behind when she's seemingly done in?

What happened to the picture in the end? Last we saw, it had Zhaan in it. Did it vanish when Maldis did?
