5.0 out of 5 stars One classic and two pivotal Season 3 "Farscape" episodes, November 3, 2003
This review is from: Farscape Season 3, Vol. 3 (DVD)
First, to be clear on what you will find on Volume 3 of Season 3 of "Farscape," it is episodes 5, 6 and 7, not 8 and 9, which are on Volume 4. At this point in the season the successful attempt to bring Aeryn back from the dead has cost Zhaan her life, and Moya's crew now has to carry out without the blue skinned priestess:
Episode 5, "... Different Destinations" (Written by Steve Worland, First Aired April 13, 2001) is one of the most emotionally devastating "Farscape" episodes ever, which is really saying something. While visiting a memorial that honors the peace treaty made between the Peacekeepers and the Venek Horde a temporal rift opens and Crichton, Aeryn, D'Argo and Jool are pulled back in time to when the monastary was the scene of the great siege. As they try to stay alive and get back to their own time, Crichton and the others realize that every thing they do is changing the course of history, with profound effects (which the rest of the crew on Moya in the "present" can see as the planet below them changes). Crichton desperately tries to find a way to make everything right again while Aeryn learns the truth about a famous Peacekeeper hero and D'Argo befriends a young girl. Far warning: you will be emotionally drained by the end of this one, a classic example of how great time travel stories can be when written intelligently. (5+ Wormholes)
"Eat Me" (Written by Matt Ford, April 20, 2001) finds Crichton, Chaina, D'Argo and Jool landing on an old, diseased Leviathan when their Transport Pod is damaged. Since the Leviathan wears a Peacekeeper Control Collar the gang is on the lookout for Peacekeepers, but instead all they find are mutant scavengers and Kaarvok, a madman who likes to eat brain matter and who has the power to "twin" any living being. This he does to D'Argo, Chaina, and Crichton. Meanwhile, Aeryn, Rygel and Stark discover a beaten and battered Talyn drifting through space, along with an unconscious Crais. At first this seems like a "road not taken" episode where the crew encounters a Leviathan carrying their less fortunate counterparts. But "Eat Me" ends with what ends up being the most significant plot develop during Season 3. (5 Wormholes)
"Thanks For Sharing" (Written by Clayvon C. Harris, First Aired June 15, 2001) has Crichton going crazy trying to figure out which one of him is the original and which the clone. Meanwhile, when D'Argo, Chiana and Rygel head down to Kanvia to pick up some Chromextin, a healing drug for the ailing Talyn, they become embroiled in local politics. Then there is the bombshell that Crais drops on Aeryn regarding her mother and the circumstances of her conception. The news is rather pertinent because it is Xhalax Sun that is commanding the Peacekeeper Retrieval Squad that attacked Talyn. Consequently, there are a whole lot of "to be continued" elements for Season 3 introduced in this episode. (4 Wormholes)
This is one of the stellar discs in the "Farscape" collection. The first episode is an absolute classic, and the other two are pivotal in establishing the major story arc of Season 3, which explored the themes of separation and death in some depth.
