'Dark Matter' Season 2 Episode 4 Postmortem; Cast Teases Memories, 'Twyx', Android Flaws & More [VIDEO]
Dark Matter's amnesiacs are filling in puzzling together their pasts piece by piece, slowly building in from the edges. Three/Marcus Boone (Anthony Lemke) received a rare chance during "We Were Family," however; one that allowed him to fill in the heart of his scattered jigsaw.
As the orphan uncovered the truth about his idyllic childhood - and killed the man who robbed him of it - Lemke explained how this revelation will color Three's decision regarding his pre-season 1 scans.
"Memory is an interesting thing. I think by restoring his memories he winds up getting all the bad stuff as well as the good stuff, and he decides at the end not to," Lemke mused. "We'll see that ripple forward...it's definitely is a conversation for not just three, but for other characters on the show throughout the season. Different characters have different responses to that in the long term."
Three wasn't the only character to explore his past during episode 4, however. Two (Melissa O'Neill) located the headquarters of Dwarf Star Technologies (Earth! Our very own blue marble!), giving fans another look the 'Twyx' (Two and Nyx) partnership in the process. O'Neill can't reveal whether or not the duo will become the BrOTP or OTP fans are hoping for, but she's defiantly cheering for the Raza's newest tag team.
"I have no idea what's going to happen there, but I can say that these two continue to work together. They continue to work together and grow together and this relationship does evolve," the actress teased at San Diego Comic-Con. "Whether or not it goes the way that the fans do, that remains to be seen.
"If it doesn't, there's always fan fiction," O'Neil added. "We'll read it."
Nyx (Melanie Liburd) has all her memories, but she is just as mysterious as anyone else onboard Two's boat. After all, you clearly have something going on when you can impress Four (Alex Mallari, Jr.), the Raza's resident swordsman and apparent zen master, in a fight ("and he's not easily impressed at all," according to Mallari).
"Nyx has a very interesting set of skills that is different to anyone else on the Raza," Liburd said. "You'll find out Nyx's back story in episode 206."
As for whoever gave the Android (Zoie Palmer) her unique programming quirk, well, that's an answer you're going to have to wait for.
"That's future seasons," executive producer Jay Firestone promised. "That's coming."
