Space is disease and danger, wrapped in darkness and silence (always the optimist, that Dr. McCoy), and that's a cold, hard fact that the Dark Matter crew would do well to remember.
One (Marc Bendavid) through Six (Roger Cross) and their trust Android (Zoie Palmer) are no stranger to near death misses, or to taking a life for that matter. When season 2 premieres, the Raza crew would do well to keep their eyes open and their defenses high.
"No one is safe-one of the things that I love about some of the cable shows is the fact that we know no one is safe," showrunner Joseph Mallozzi told io9. "In our show, no one is safe."
That sentiment hold true for friends and foes alike. The numerical amnesiacs will pick up a few new friends in prison, namely Nyx (Melanie Liburd) and Devon (Shaun Sipos). Equipped with "killer instincts" and a fighting physique "equal to [her] formidable crew mates," Liburd's Nyx will join the Raza family after a cellblock run in with Two (Melissa O'Neil). Devon, meanwhile, will bring his much needed medical expertise to the ship following a daring prison break.
As the team digs deeper into their pasts and dangerous politics of corporate war, Nyx and Devon will find targets painted on their backs as well. If season 1 proved anything, however, it's that these guns for hire have Matrix level skills when it comes to avoiding bullets. In other words, their new enemies should harbor their own fair share of trepidation as Dark Matter heads into the summer season.
From the cunning Commander Shaddick (Franka Potente), Chief Inspector of the Galactic Authority Serious Crimes Division to Four's (Alex Mallari, Jr.) childhood Misaki (Ellen Wong), Commander of the Ishida Royal Guard, season 2's baddies could easily be the ones to take the fall. Four murdered his mentor, after all. Killing an enemy would hardly cause him to bat an eye.
