to find a place to hide, Moya comes across a large field of stellar
mist. Not sure if it is safe to enter the mist, Aeryn scouts ahead
in the transport pod. The crew loses contact with Aeryn for a time
and she finally returns after a solar day. When Aeryn gets back
to Moya, everyone is shocked to see that she is an old woman. Aeryn
insists she had lived for over 50 cycles on another planet. She
claims to have married, raised children, and still has a granddaughter
to look after. The crew is not convinced Aeryn knows what she is
talking about and assumes the mist aged her in some way.
for the ride is Stark. He is the glowing man who befriended Crichton
in THM from last season. Crichton follows
Aeryn back to the planet and sees Aeryn's granddaughter for himself.
Aeryn convinces John that he must go back to Moya and return to
her after another 8 arns. Of course, another 50 or so cycles will
pass on the planet during that time. John tries to get away, but
the passage through the mist leading to Moya closes and he is trapped
is up to the crew of Moya to save John and Aeryn. Joining in unity,
Zhaan and Stark attempt to find a solution that will save their
friends. However, it is not the people on the planet that are in
danger, but Moya and everyone aboard her instead. Moya is trapped
in the mist, which is frozen in time. Meanwhile, John and Aeryn
live their lives and grow old on the planet. The only hope is for
an unlikely reunion 55 cycles in the future.
Stark fellow finally decided to return the transport pod he "borrowed"
at the end of last season. Well, better late than never. Whatever
his timing, Stark returns with very big news. But enough of that...
Stark can reveal his big secret the crew find themselves in a time-travel
episode, sort of. To be honest, I have great difficulty getting
excited about this episode. It isn't boring, the acting is solid,
and we are presented with an interesting dilemma of Aeryn and John
growing old. Yet, something is missing here.
I am not the biggest John and Aeryn shipper in scaperland. However,
I find it somewhat amazing that they could spend 55 cycles on a
planet together and still not communicate their true feelings for
each other. True, they are clearly very close for a couple with
quite a large age difference, but I get the impression they are
together as a matter of necessity rather than true love. One would
think, after 55 cycles, John and Aeryn would have long ago opened
up to each other. But, John must wait until Aeryn's death before
he finally learns the shocking identity of her one true love. They
couldn't have done this while she was alive? Makes me wonder how
long the writers plan to drag out this courtship thing between these
back to Stark's big news. He knows where D'Argo's kid is. Of course,
I'm giving the revelation more time in this article than Farscape
gave it in the episode. I'm sure Jothee will play a featured roll
in a future episode, maybe.
and sometimes weepy, The Locket is the big "shippy" episode
we've been reading about for some time. It does contain some touching
moments, but overall I felt somewhat empty after watching this episode.
Makes me wonder if that is how John and Aeryn are starting to feel
about each other. Normally, I would say, "time will tell..."
But, the way this episode portrays their relationship, I'm not so
