Boxed this off today, really really good. Can’t wait for the next/final one!

 

I wasn’t expecting…

Spoiler

The way they wrote Alex out of it. I knew it was coming but it was pretty abrupt/ham-fisted in the end.


Am I right that the…

Spoiler

…fate of the Barkeith in the final scene was similar to the station that disintegrated above Venus many episodes ago?
 

Again it seemed to just get chucked out there as if we needed convincing to come back.

What’s actually happening in that scene isn’t really very well explained and most of the context for it was provided in the fourth season with very little reference to it in the fifth.

It’s not the same as what happened on Venus - that was the OG protomolecule doing its thing.

 

The force that takes out the Barkieth is whatever killed the protomolecule creators - it doesn’t disassemble the ship like what happened on Venus, it completely wipes it out of existence.

 

Almost everything to do with this other power was covered in all the Miller hijinx on the alien planet in season four so it’s easy to forget, I don’t know why they didn’t stick in a brief reminder before the Barkieth scene.

So I’m at this point with the dead tree medium versions. Do I plough on through those or do the video version first?

 

Do you mean you've caught up to where the show is? If so, the last series isn't going to cover all of the remaining material from the pulp-based nameless objects, so probably best to stop with those for now and wait for series 6 to come out. Then crack on if you want the rest of the story.

Ah, that’s where it was from! Knew I’d seen it but the brain wasn’t firing on all cylinders. Thanks, @Flanders

 

@Benny Totally agree :)


Yeah the Venus incident was the protomolecule doing its thing.

The ship being eaten is the rival inter-dimensional species doing its thing…

They do drop hints throughout the season.

Still on my first watch through, just finished season 3. 

 

My god. The sudden gear change and pace for the second half of the season was immense. So good, can't wait for season 4!

 

Now to get out of this thread again before I read anything I shouldn't.
