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.
Dark Matter (Syfy, Friday, 9/8C) reaches the end of its first season with back-to-back episodes that are so different that their only connection is that are happening to the amnesiac mercenary crew of the spaceship the Rasa.
Episode Twelve finds the crew and, especially, Two learning out where she came from; Episode Thirteen is, of all things, a bottle show – no guest stars and set entirely on the show’s standing Rasa sets. Both are gripping and relentlessly enthralling.
Syfy’s Dark Matter – from John Mallozzi and Paul Mullie (various Stargate titles) – will guest star Ruby Rose, who was featured in the latest season of Orange is the New Black, on its July 24th episode.
Rose will play Wendy, an entertainment android who may be more than she seems. Follow the jump for more.
