A storm could have disastrous consequences for the crew.

Farscape’s back – after an opening episode that read like a shopping list of plots that will be explored this season, this next one turned on the show’s usual strength.
Not all shows would have done the storyline with Chiana sleeping with her boyfriend’s son, but they would all have milked it for weeks. Maybe Farscape will come back to it but D’Argo found out the truth at least four episodes faster than you might have expected.
That said, his overhearing Chiana at the end felt a little more like Casualty than Farscape. And the chance of Aeryn having bought the weapon that she would turn out to rely on later was unsubtle.
Yet the crisp dialogue is back, the escalation of problems – and the great effects like the tremendous space station.
But why was the episode called Suns and Lovers when there was only one star and it wasn’t the most vital part of the story?
