Synopsis: With criminals chasing an injured Johnny, D’avin and Delle Seyah take drastic measures to save him.
Review: While last week dealt with Dutch, Aneela, and Klhyn. This weeks episode deals with events shortly after Johnny, D’avin and Delle Seyah escaped the Scarback Necropolis by severing the orbital life.
We pick them up on a planet and learn that Johnny has been severely injured with a punctured lung. They’re all walking in a desert, but Johnny is struggling a little and also bickering with Delle Seyah. D’avin has to intervene on a number of occasions to keep things from getting out of hand. When they get set upon by a group of criminals Johnny’s lung gets worse and having fended off the bandits Seyah and D’avin are given no choice but to inject Johnny with some of the green.
Having made a miraculous recovery thanks to the Green. Johnny becomes quite unpredictable and somewhat full of himself as deals with the Green induced high. Seyah and D’avin meanwhile try and deal with the situation while helping some of the criminals that attacked them earlier. We learn that they have crashed on a debtors planet and the criminals are forever in debt, which forces them into risky ventures in order to just survive.
Meanwhile, back at the R.A.C. Zeph and Pippin formulate a plan to get onboard the Necropolis to find out what happened to Dutch, Seyah, D’avin, and Johnny.
Overall. This was a strong second episode with a lot of plot crammed into it. Aaron Ashmore puts in a strong performance as Johnny becomes more and more manic due to his instant addiction to the Green, but it would seem that his friendship with Dutch may well save him given that he heard Dutch telling him to fight against the effects that the Green is having on him.
Given what we learned in last weeks episode. It will be interesting to find out how Dutch and Johnny will save each other. Especially given the emphasis that has been put on them in these first two episodes.
It was great to see Kelly McCormack in action as Zeph again and her scenes with Pippin displayed a lot of growth for both characters.
I’m looking forward to seeing how all these story threads develop as the season moves forward.
