Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, Syfy Fridays are back, with the season premieres of Dark Matter and Wynonna Earp!

When the second season of Dark Matter left off, things didn’t look good for our Raza crew. Four had restored his memories and fully embraced his former life as Ishida Ryo. In an effort to help win the war for Zairon, he had plans to blow up the EOS-7 station where the summit was being held. The rest of the Raza crew headed to EOS-7 to stop him, leaving Nyx behind to watch the ship. As Five joined Truffault at the summit, the others spread out to look for the explosives. Things didn’t go as planned—as Two tried to reason with Ryo, Three was abducted by Nieman and some of his Ferrous Corporation goons, and Six was caught by Kierken and stuck in a cell. Meanwhile, Ryo and Misaki snuck away and boarded the Raza. Misaki poisoned and killed Nyx while Ryo stole the blink drive. As they were leaving Ryo told Android to get the crew back to the ship ASAP if they wanted to live. The resulting blast loosened the bars on Six’s cell, freeing him to get to the Marauder; Truffault and Five ran for an escape pod; Three was still with Galactic Authority cop Lt. Anders; and two was somewhere on the station.

Did the entire Raza crew manage to escape before the station exploded? Even if Two was caught in the blast, couldn’t her nannites save her? Is Nyx really dead? Is still some of Four left in Ryo? After all, he did warn the others to get off the station. What does he plan to do with the blink drive, and can whoever is left from the Raza crew regroup in time to stop him?

Tonight’s 2-hour season premiere is a fun, action-packed start to what looks to be another exciting and entertaining season! However, as I was watching, I found myself missing the old crew. Last season we lost both One and Four, and now it feels like some part of the fun group dynamic is missing. I hope that the crew finds some way to bring Four back into the fold or that we get some additional fun crew members to fill the void.

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “Being Better Is So Much Harder; It Doesn’t Have to Be Like This,” the scattered survivors of EOS-7 battle to regroup amidst the backdrop of corporate war. Ryo Ishida, now emperor of Zairon, makes an enemy of his former allies, while the past comes back to haunt the crew of the Raza.

After tonight’s Dark Matter premiere, Wynonna Earp returns for a second season. This series also had a crazy season finale last year. Waverly confronted Bobo, and in the process discovered that she’s not actually an Earp. Meanwhile, Wynonna went after Willa, who used the Peacemaker to cross through the gate that led out of the Ghost River Triangle. However, as she did so, a giant snake-like creature came through and grabbed her. A scuffle ensued, and eventually Wynonna was forced to fire a bullet in Willa’s head in order to put a stop to everything.

Afterwards, the Black Badge folks showed up, and took Bobo and Dolls into custody. While Dolls was heading to prison, Bobo was about to experience a slow, painful death as soon as the truck made it across the border. So as the vehicle was driving away, Wynonna used the Peacemaker to give Bobo a mercy killing. Afterwards, as Doc and Wynonna plotted how to break Dolls out of prison, Waverly wandered over to a puddle of black goo and put her fingers in. This caused her eyes to turn pitch black, and she pulled a gun on Wynonna and Doc.

Will someone (or something) step up to lead the Revenants now that Bobo is no longer around to keep them in check? What is this darkness that seems to have entered Waverly, and is it going to make her kill her family/friends? Is there any truth to what Bobo said about Waverly not being an Earp, and what are the ramifications? Why does Black Badge have this personal vendetta against Dolls, and what do they plan to do with him? And what will happen to Dolls if he doesn’t get another dosage of his medicine soon?

I thoroughly enjoyed tonight’s season premiere—probably even more so than the Dark Matter premiere, which is a first for me! Tonight’s episode is less about catching the demon of the week and more about a rescue mission. It also introduces a couple fun new characters, and sets up an interesting and exciting new arc for the season.

On tonight’s premiere, “Steel Bars and Stone Walls,” Wynonna and the gang must deal with a whole new level of evil when a variety of demons enter the Ghost River Triangle.

Don’t miss the season premieres of both shows on Syfy starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Ginormous Food.
