has wormhole technology and it isn’t the good guys! Furlow,
the mechanic who patched up the Farscape module in Season
One’s Til the Blood Runs Clear, was not only able to
copy the module, she also developed wormhole technology from
John’s data. Although she didn’t know until it was too late,
her test pilots were in cahoots with the Scarrans, who hacked
into her computer, stole the data (nobody knows yet exactly how
much data they got), and are heading straight for DamBaDa.
One of Infinite Possibilities brought together several hanging
threads and began weaving them together into a wonderful
Farscape tale: the Ancients and the wormhole technology they
implanted in John’s brain; Furlow and the wormhole data she
took from John; the Scorpy clone in John’s head; the Scarrans;
John and Aeryn’s romance and what will happen if John gets a
chance to go home. It’s one of the best episodes of Season
Butch AND Sundance were in fine form on DamBaDa. I only hope
DamBaDa is nowhere near Bolivia!
Aeryn to read English is a great idea. With translator microbes,
she’d never be able to learn to speak John’s language. The
only way she could communicate to people on earth is by writing.
John and Aeryn have essentially decided that she’ll go with
him if he can ever go home. Right now, things are looking very
good for them as a couple. Unfortunately, this probably means
that something awful is in the works, possibly even worse than
the Scorpy clone taking over John’s brain.
When the Ancient showed Furlow what he really looks like, he
seemed to be a different species than the being in A Human
Reaction. Could this be a hint that Jack’s not who he
claims to be? Or could it just be me, obsessing over
I’ve said it before – Aeryn better keep an eye on this one
because he certainly has his eye on her.
Clone: Great outfit for bumper
cars, Scorpy! He’s actually being helpful to John, telling him
that Scorpius couldn’t have constructed a Farscape 1 and
reminding him about Furlow. Of course, it’s motivated by his
desire to stay hidden from Jack, but he was helpful all the
He starts acting whacko just being near Stark.
This young ship is having a worse childhood than Scorpius! So
far, he’s been stolen from his mother, attacked by Halosians,
poisoned, lured dangerously close to a sun, chased and nearly
captured by a Peacekeeper Retrieval Squad, swallowed by a budong.
This week he’s blinded by solar flares while doing a strafing
run to save his crew from the Charrids.
He murdered the Charrid with a seam ripper? Later, he was having
such a fine old time getting revenge on the Charrids for their
atrocities to Hynerians when he got…what? Injured? Killed?
Perhaps it’s significant that she tested her wormholes using
her copy of John’s ship. This could be one of the secrets to
safely traversing wormholes. She flew it through a wormhole and
didn’t even muss her hair. (How could she tell?)
