Episode 311 Dark S02E05 Lost and Found

July 26, 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  “Lost and Found,” and our listener feedback segment. 

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we discuss the fact that Charlotte finally learns the identity of her father, and even though it's probably not sitting well with her now, that's one Winden mystery solved. Now that Adam has revealed his true identity to his teenaged self, young Jonas embarks on a mission that he understands will save everyone. But is Adam telling the truth when he says Michael Kahnwald's suicide is the key to preventing the apocalypse? Can Jonas prevent his father from killing himself, and if so, how?

One of the more emotional episodes of Dark, "Lost and Found" forces viewers to evaluate Martha's treatment of her mother who has only just learned that Mikkel time traveled to 1986. Ulrich escapes from the psychiatric facility and reunites with Mikkel in an emotionally charged scene between a time traveling father and son.

Armed with the time machine they procured from Bartosz, Team Magnus returns to the cave to give Noah's underling one more chance to explain himself. He activates the machine, and the kids find themselves in 1987, just in time to watch two police cars drive by. And in one of the episode's most poignant ironies, the restrained Ulrich Nielsen sees Magnus and Martha but is unable to establish conflict.

Wayne recommends the Hulu series Das Boot while Dave suggests checking out Tricia Helfer's addition to the cast of SyFy's vampire apocalypse tale Van Helsing which is set to return for its fourth season this fall.
