Farscape: Season 3: Episode 15 -- After disposing of the Scorpius Clone, the Ancient 'Jack' unlocks the secrets to wormhole technology in Crichton's mind allowing them to build a Displacement Engine, the 'ultimate weapon' that will allow them to destroy the Scarran Dreadnought before it escapes with Furlow's data. Seeing the value of the weapon, Furlow kills Jack and takes off with it. In the ensuing chase, Crichton is fatally exposed to the highly reactive Partanium that fuels the engine. With nothing left to lose, Crichton volunteers to launch the weapon at the Dreadnought, experiencing first hand the terrifying power of the wormhole technology.

Betrayal and sacrifice, 27 August 2012
Author: Tweekums from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

As this, the second of a two part story, begins it looks as if Crichton has lost his mental battle with Harvey and Aeryn will be forced to kill him. Thankfully it is just one final ruse by Harvey before he ceases to exist and John is free of him once and for all. They still have to work quickly to prepare for the Scarran's arrival. As Jack puts the finishing touches to the device that could destroy the Scarrans Furlow shows her true colours and shots him; as much as she dislikes the Scarrans she won't miss the opportunity to make a profit! Meanwhile a single Scarran has boarded Talyn and ordered Crais and Stark to hand over control to him. If they are to succeed in preventing the Scarrans getting the technology they will have to keep control of Talyn and Crichton will have to retrieve the device from Furlow and get it into position to deploy against the Scarrans... it won't be easy and not everybody will survive.

This was a fine conclusion to the story which saw more than one character die... although the 'Harvey' in the head of the Crichton on Moya will still exist. If you like action packed episodes you'll love this as there is plenty; including shooting, explosions and ultimately the spectacular destruction of the Scarran Dreadnaught, the victory wasn't without cost however. I particularly enjoyed the scene where John and Aeryn chased after Furlow while being chased by a Charrid... while all of them are driving vehicles that wouldn't have looked out of place on the set of 'Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome'! It isn't all action though; there are some well handled emotional scenes that may cause a tear to be shed, especially the first time you see it.
