Phoebe’s Choice

Last week on Dark Matter, we finally got all but the money shot on the resolution of the lasting rivalry between Two and Ryo that began late season two. After she was kidnapped the episode before by the alternate timeline Three, who goes by Boone, she was brought before Emperor Ryo Ishida on his home world. She hastened to making mincemeat of his guards and was dueling with him when an explosion rocked the whole palace. A meeting of Ryo’s generals had been sabotaged.

Back aboard the Raza, the rest of the crew wondered if Two could still be alive but soon learned the truth when Ryo called and invited them to Zairon to negotiate a trade: the Blink Drive in exchange for Two. Instead of going in person, Three, Five, & Six beamed their minds into clones to talk about an exchange. Six confronted the leader of the royal guards, Misaki, who confessed to her murder of former Raza crew member Nix. The Emperor’s advisor Teku took Five to see Two, and together they weighed options.

Ryo confided in Three that when he regained his memories, he recalled that Three himself was the cause of the radiation poisoning that eventually led to the death of his lover, Sarah, who existed now only as a digital copy of her former human self. Next in a private talk with Five, Ryo revealed to her the identity of her sister, whom she knew was adopted by a wealthy family. Though the reveal never made it past the fourth wall, she was visibly shocked and upset.

Later Ryo had his private talk with Six, and Six thwarted an attempt on the Emperor’s life. Then, for some reason, despite the state of emergency, Ryo had a full dinner with all of the Raza crew. There, he told Six that their Portia/Two discovered that he was a mole through an informant high in the ranks of the G.A. (Could it be Anders?!?) Misaki interrupted dinner, saying they are under attack. She also produced evidence that made it appear Teku was behind the attempt on Ryo’s life. She was soon ordered to execute the Raza crew members, but they were already breaking free to get Two to a ship to escape.

Misaki lured Ryo to an ambush, finally revealing that it was her treachery all along. He slayed the group of assassins then engaged her in an exciting katana fight. Six & Five got into their clone/transport units that would transfer their memories of the day back to their real bodies. Three stuck around and got his clone killed on purpose so he didn’t have to retain the memory of his contribution to the tragedy of Sarah’s death.

Just as Misaki was about to kill Ryo, Two intervened and killed the traitor with the same poisoned knife she used to kill Nix. Two then took Ryo into custody, and both of them headed back to the Raza. Once on the ship, the crew debated the fate of their former ally Four, who was Ryo. She went into where he was being held as their prisoner, and they had a long talk. He told her she had a child that she has no memory of. It was his apology before she was to execute him. And then. In fine cliff-hangar fashion… The episode ended with her finger on the trigger about to execute him!

Does Four/Ryo die tonight in the first two seconds of the episode? Is Anders the one who betrayed Six? Will we also learn who Five’s sister is? Only one way to find out, and that’s by watching the final episode of season three of Dark Matter tonight! Also, be sure to check out my interview with Jeff Teravainen, who plays Anders!

On tonight’s episode, “Nowhere to Go,” the crew of the Raza unite Ferrous Corps’ enemies in an effort to end the corporate war.

See how the season ends tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching the season finale of Wynonna Earp & Killjoys!
