  • Mood:

he says he's gonna get me

Finally getting back into the Farscape rewatch with 2x13, "Look at the Princess part III: The Maltese Crichton" and 2x14, "Beware of Dog."

"It gave us the slip. Why would it come back?"
"Because it's leading us into a trap."
"Well, as long as we both know that."

"Look at the Princess Part II"
Original Airdate 4 August 2000

John's in rare fettle as of "Look at the Princess." Not only is he riding the crazy bastard thing, but he solves the problem. And he's still not quite a cold-blooded killer: he kills the Scarran emissary in the heat of battle, but he can't kill the helpless Scorpius. Choices you are going to regret for a thousand, John.

But he's utterly ruthless and decisive when it comes to taking care of his wife and daughter--any way he can--even if it means never seeing them again.

I love the gender-reversed James Bond interlude, and I love the fact that the princess of the title is John's daughter, and not the obvious princess.

Also, this episode still makes me cry.

"Take care of my little girl."

Aw, Johnny.

"Beware of Dog"
Original Airdate 11 August 2000

In which Scorpius is getting a little omnipresent, and John is an idiot, and Aeryn... apologizes. And means it.

Aeryn confronts John about his crazy, and John tells her... some of it. And John's facial expressions in that last scene are so brilliant... and so brilliantly creepy.

"I'll ask for help. Just like you do."

Farts: Rygel, to prove his identity
Bizarrely appropriate pop culture references:  Aliens, E.T., Han Solo (in stereo) "Sorry about the mess."
Random Muppets: The Vrok, of course
Bodily Fluids:  Vrok blood, Vrok urine, parasite slime, Aeryn's tears.
Deaths of named characters:  Alas, poor Vrok.
Worldbuilding weirdness:  
Moments of sheer love: D'Argo, dying, makes a pass at Chiana. Chiana's comment "This is the only way I know to help him," as she refuses to be a stereotypical female.
