Now that we’ve finally got our grubby paws on a real trailer for Dark Matter’s 3rd season I’m feeling a little better. And a little worse. Better because trailers! Worse because it’s made me even more impatient for the start of season 3.
So to pass the time, I thought I’d play “hit the crap outta the pause button” with the trailer and see what’s inside. Joe’s got the trailer and a few screencaps on his blog where he’s asking for speculation. So go over and participate! But keep this tab open and come back to see what I think I’ve found and tell me what I may have missed.
The promo opens to a clock-like ticking sound showing us the 4 remaining (human) crew members. One and Four are absent for obvious reasons. At least those reasons are obvious if you watch the show, otherwise this is all utter nonsense. Hell, it’s still mostly nonsense and yet here we are, you reading, me typing.
Here we have a very brief glimpse of Tash. Which Tash from what universe is not certain, though. My money’s on her being one of the occupants of the AU Marauder. Remember it? It’s the one with FTL capabilities. Oh, and since she’s with Three in this scene I wonder if there’s going to be any more head-butting and surprise sex involved? Hey, I had to ask.
Your wish for Android to perform more badass antics has been granted! She’s got not one, but two guns and she adds a little extra, “blow the smoke from the barrels” flare just for fun. I hear she’s going to have a lot more to do this season and even get a name. No, another name, not just Android.
Either this is someone new or my memory’s just really bad. I’ll admit, my memory is horrible, but I don’t recognize this guy. Whoever he is he’s playing with Ryo’s toys. Sorry it’s so blurry, but he won’t stand still for a good picture.
Then there’s this guy. He’s really selling the Raza Crew as the top dogs in Badassville. Is he going to be the new Tabor Calchek, helping our gang get jobs to buy fishy-tasting protein bars? Judging from his interaction with Three, I’d guess he’s probably an old friend/cohort. No matter who he is, he’s laying it on really thick for our crew.
I don’t know if this is a rescue mission, an attack on an enemy, a theft in progress, or all of the above. All I know is Two and Three breach an airlock onto what I’m guessing is a space station. Three isn’t sparing the ammo, either.
The Galactic Authority is back for more. More pain, that is. Those fools are once again on the Raza, but for what purpose I do not know. All I know is they’re going to lose in a painful way if they mess with our crew.
I know it’s hard to tell from this angle, but that’s Two and Four, er, Ryo fighting. It’s no longer one big happy(ish) family for the Raza any more. At least not when it comes to the new Emperor.
In case there was any doubt, the space station is still exploding. I just put it in here because I like seeing things blow up.
Okay, now here’s an intriguing image, to say the least. It’s Wexler, baby! To make it even sweeter, he’s getting the snot slapped out of his face. Okay, that’s not the visual I was trying to conjure.
It’s two of my favorite things together! No, not peanut butter and chocolate, though that’s a good guess. It’s Five and Bubba, which is better because they have fewer calories. I think.
This one made me flinch a little bit. Misaki Han is playing with a sword and doing the kind of split that makes you walk funny the next day.
Ooh, Mom’s got her “time out” face on! This is where Two says, “We kill Ishida Ryo.” At first I assumed she meant actually kill him as in make his body dead. Then, after thinking for a while I wondered if she’s not conjuring a plan to permanently erase his memories as Ryo. We’ll just have to watch. No pain, no gain.
It looks like “Kill Ryo” is a running theme. First, Two says she wants to kill him, now this fight looks like Misaki Han is trying to do just that. She and Ryo are so crazy I wouldn’t be surprised if this is their version of foreplay.
Batter up! Three takes down a drone the old-fashioned way – By batting it out of the park. I can’t wait to see what that’s all about.
Okay, that’s all I’ve got. Let me know what I got wrong, what I got right (if anything), and what I missed. If you have any additions or corrections, I’ll add them to the post. We want this to be done right. Right?
