We get an episode which in the style of MGM/Syfy certainly looks like an exercise in budget control, not a bad thing especially as we tend to get an uber pay off this close to the season wrap up.

Pain is very much an apt title as a number of the crew have hallucinations which deal with their emotional issues such as James and her feelings of betrayal by Scott or Scott himself and the son he has only met via a proxy. It’s a very tense episode even when you figure the main narrative out but it makes full use of the subdued lighting of the ship and confined spaces.

Key Points…

  • Regrets
  • Paranoia
