what!! They pulled off a great save. ‘We’re So Screwed part II’ is
great, fabulous and fantastic. Its fast paced, witty and full of great
scenes with excellent scripting.
out that John has managed to convince the others that they have to go
rescue Scorpious in case he gives the Scarrens any wormhole knowledge he
might have. So off they go on Lo’Lan to Katrazi… Only to find a PK
Command Carrier in orbit around this supposed secret base that no one
knows anything about. Grayza is there with Braca trying to get the
Scarrens to agree to the Peace accord… is she a Biloid? Who knows that
question doesn’t even arise. Now John in order to prevent himself from
just being grabbed for his wormhole knowledge has built himself a
portable nuclear weapon which is tied into his bio signs, as he puts it
too happy, too sad, too hot or too cold and they all go boom. (Oh and if
his heart stops too.)
he is trying to play both sides off against the other while trying to
get hold of Scorpy and escape. On the base there is a lot of tension
between the Charrids and Sikozu’s
people, the Kaylish. So the plan is to create as much tension as they
can between the two and then put a match to it and while everything is
busy blowing up make a run for it with Scorpy.
this episode raises a whole load of questions, for one why the hell do
Scarrens eat plants? And what’s so special about one particular one
they grow in a high secured cave deep underground where only they and
the Charrids are supposed to be able to gain access. Another is whether
or not Scorpy has indeed been a spy for the Scarren emperor for ten
cycles as it seems or if he has been playing a dangerous game of twister
with the truth.
old friend makes an appearance, no not Harvey again, rather our
favourite Bannick, the one the only Stark… with hair. No I am not
kidding, he has flowing locks of hair… well I am sure they would flow
if he bothered washing them at any point. Seems he is the secret weapon
they plan to use to break Scorpious. Now I know what you’re
thinking... ‘But I thought Scorpy was a spy?’ Well, he is (isn’t
he?) but the only people that seem to know that is himself and the
as far as I could work out Stark knows Crichton is aboard but makes no
move to contact him, now correct me if I am wrong but if Stark guided
the other Crichtons soul to the other side doesn’t that mean he knows
all that Crichton did about wormholes? If that’s the case then he
might even more know that John. We know that stark isn’t exactly buddy
buddy anymore with John after John
Quixote, so the question is what is the demented former slap head doing?
so very much happens in this episode, the cliffhanger isn’t exactly
unexpected but you just know you are going to be racking your brain for
the next week trying to figure out just what’s going to happen.
episode is a keeper, it makes full use of all the characters, which is a
delight to be seen, and we also find out that while the Scarrens do have
mivonck they are internal. As such it is not a good idea to try kicking
them in them as Chiana finds out to her cost.
All in all this one is a keeper, slow to start in part one, fast paced with lots of intrigue and action in part two… and I have high hopes for part three but I have to wait for a week before I get to see it which is going to be something like torture with pointy cushions and comfy chairs.
