The second season finale of Dark Matter (Syfy, Fridays, 10/9C) – But First, We Save the Galaxy – brings the crew of the Raza to Eos-7 to try to prevent a war between the corporations. It’s the first Council of Corporations face-to-face meeting in over a decade (these people really don’t trust each other…).

What began as a series about mind-wiped six strangers on a spaceship has evolved into one where they’ve learned who they were and chosen not to be those people anymore. That decision put them in the surprising position of becoming something of an unheralded group of interstellar Robin Hoods – while leaving them among the most wanted (former) criminals in the galaxy.

The second season finale could have been a series finale with a very few adjustments, but with the show’s renewal, it is, instead, a really good season finale.

How To Kill Friends and Influence People offers answers to burning questions; lots of action and banter, and unexpected sacrifice. If Eric Frank Russell were alive today, he’d definitely approve.
