(Incidentally, I kept hearing whispers of LOST IN SPACE incidental music in tonight’s episode, especially in Ty’s solo scenes.)

Really curious how it's going to be resolved.

I have a theory about how this story will be resolved, but I don't want to say it because it might be a spoiler. Great episode.

I’ve had the distinct feeling that all of the slow buildup regarding both the Moclans and the Kaylons is gonna have some kind of payoff, down the line. And, in regards to the Kaylons, Issac is the only one we’ve seen...for now.

I hate being right all the time.



And, regarding the score, I heard some James Horner/ALIENS, Jerry Goldsmith/STAR TREK- THE MOTION PICTURE, and even a pinch of David Arnold/INDEPENDENCE DAY in there.

In other news, the set of pipes on Scott Grimes. I keep forgetting he started a singing career in his teen idol days. I keep forgetting he was a teen idol.

I was wondering why a race of AI beings lived in a place so...stylized and pretty. 

 When I saw hand rails on the stairs I knew something was off.....

I'm wondering if there is still some significance to Issac being the only Kaylon we see with blue "eyes", other than his emissary position.

Yes, I also was hearing some LOST IN SPACE undertones. I'm going to rewatch to see if I can pick up what Greg mentioned.

Seth MacFarlane has clearly had a "master plan" for this series in place since he conceived it. And it's working brilliantly.

"the set of pipes on Scott Grimes."

Um, I have to admit that his singing made my eyes tear up a bit. What the hell is wrong with me??

Seth MacFarlane is also a professional pianist and singer, has several albums and had even toured with Frank Sinatra, Jr. I wonder when he'll get to croon a bit on the show.

Yep. Story and characters come first, and that’s why this show works. It’s not nearly so episodic as it initially seemed, and seeds planted throughout have paid dividends as we’ve gone along.

Question is, will this cliffhanger go full-“Best of Both Worlds” and restore the status quo at the end of Part 2, or will it go the route of “The Judas Contract” from NEW TEEN TITANS?

I also love how this show manages to homage and reference prior sci-fi while also managing to be its own thing. We all thought that Issac was Data. Instead, he’s actually a friggin’ Terminator, from a world where Skynet won. With dashes of the Borg (spheres instead of cubes), Cylons, and various others tossed in. 

This is a game-changer, and I can’t believe that the show won’t be renewed for a third season, after this brilliant gut-punch of an episode.


Also, I heard it pointed out elsewhere, and I can’t believe I didn’t make the connection. Penny Johnson-Gerald of course appeared as Ben Sisko’s love interest on DS9. Ben Sisko was a single father, and Claire Finn is a single mother. Sisko was the Emissary of the Bajorans, and Issac is referred to as the Kaylons’ emissary. So, Finn’s character is sort of a riff on Sisko’s single-dad role in DS9, and Johnson-Gerald’s character is again dating an emissary on a sci-fi show. Cute.
