Episode 310 Dark S02E04 The Travelers

July 19, 2019

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a Tip of the Week, commentary and analysis for this week’s episode of the German Netflix production Dark titled  “The Travelers,” and our listener feedback segment. 

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we learn Adam’s true identity, and while it comes as a shock to teenaged Jonas, most of us saw this one coming. Jonas finds himself in 1921, and we discuss his meeting with young Noah and Adam who introduce him to the beginnings of the Sic Mundus movement and the concept of travelers. Once Jonas learns that the tunnels in the cave won't be completed for another thirty-two years, the realization that he's stuck in 1921 begins to sink in.

Katherina finally learns the truth about her son and husband's whereabouts, but the reality is not easy for her to process. We come this close to learning the backstory of Wöller's eye patch, but 1987 Claudia nearly causes an accident when she wanders in the middle of the road carrying a time travel device. However, it's the discovery of Bartosz in the caves that highlights the teenagers' attempt to figure out what's going on in Winden. 

Wayne recommends season three of Stranger Things as his Tip of the Week, and Dave alerts listeners to Battlestar Galactica alum Katee Sackhoff's latest science fiction project Another Life which is set to debut on Netflix.

In Listener Feedback, Fred checks in with an examination of the online articles Claudia retrieves, and we now have to question what impact her return to her own time will have on the power plant. Fred also updates his Winden family tree chart to reflect the newest revelations.
