on Moya, I'd be very leery of Chiana's shopping expeditions. Going
back to PIYW, Chiana has shown rather strange
taste for bizarre and dangerous items. In this case, D'Argo and
Chiana bring back a Vorc (a distant cousin to Mork), a parasite
hunting creature. Part bloodhound, part ET, the Vorc immediately
runs away and the crew spend much of the episode trying to find
away, there's trouble. John sees a creature hiding the the walls.
At first, Aeryn and Pilot doubt whether John actually saw anything
at all. John has been acting strange, lately. Aeryn has noticed
that John mumbles to himself and seems distracted by something.
John, very out of character, refuses to talk about it. John is actually
seeing visions of Scorpius. John knows the visions are all in his
head, but seems suspicious of what they mean and where they are
may be hallucinating visions of Scorpy, but the creature he saw
was quite real. It attacks Chiana and D'Argo. D'Argo is severely
injured and poisoned by the creature. D'Argo is dying from the toxins
and his only hope is for the crew to locate the creature and capture
the intensity of the last three episodes, Farscape throws in this
light, not very memorable, but generally entertaining little episode.
The primary story follows the crew hunting the little creature D'Argo
and Chiana brought on board. Then, realizing things aren't as they
seem, it's the crew that becomes the prey.
the real story is about John and his visions of Scorpius. Many have
speculated, since MTB, that the Aurora chair changed John. His strange
behavior in MTB, VM, and TTS suggested John was affected by Scorpius.
Then, his behavior seemed to return to normal with later episodes.
In LATP series, however, it becomes clear that John is suffering
from more than a post traumatic stress situation. Scorpius implanted
something in John's mind. Whatever it is, it enhances John's own
survival instincts and keeps John from killing Scorpius. Now John
is seeing visions of Scorpy and seems preoccupied with them.
of Dog is not a great episode. But, it is entertaining and that
is what Farscape is all about.
