Dayna, what's the point of teleporting down at dusk if someone in the away team wears bright orange?

I always assumed it was Vila, as he set up the cave.


But how would Vila know what she looked like?


Photograph?

The one Avon was looking at in Space Fall?


That was a photograph?


Or, Avon just ordered Orac to download one from the Fed database. Too bad Orac didn't tell Avon he got the photograph from Central Security Personnel.

While I like Dayna's costume, it is not exactly perfect camouflage...

Listen to the voices, Avon. Listen to the voices.

We never get a close look at it. I always thought it might be Anna's last letter, but her photograph would be even more poignant. Do you remember those weird hidden 3-D images that were all the rage a few decades ago? They didn't look like pictures as well. So, maybe Avon had something like that.


I had always assumed that it was A Cunning Plan!

Just had a thought. Yes, that's what that horrible noise was...
Anyway, Avon has been 'interrogated' for over 5 days which puts him into a similar mental state to Blake after he got flashbacks to HIS interrogation. It explains the weird behaviour of Avon after this and supplies an answer to Blake's earlier behaviour.

Avon had a cunning plan? So that's how he ended up on a prison ship...

Most riveting television ever.

The last ten minutes of the B7 Episode Rumors of Death.
The last ten minutes of the B5 episode Zha Ha' Dum
The last ten minutes of the GoT episode The Long Night.

Oh but there is a closer look at it! It is just a computer program scheme for studio lighting. I have a photo of it somewhere.

On the commentary track, Jan Chappell asks: "Paul, what are you doing? Are trying to touch her ... pearls?"

Jacs is brilliant in this.

It's an old wall...
Wonderfully delivered by Jacks. A very old saying.

In my head I always imagine the camera cutting to Cally when Avon says, "No, there's no one else."

Everything about this is perfect. It is a perfect 50 minute of drama.

Bartolomew is a good actress. Very dangerous.

You can see that at once, she's just a bit less despairing than she was.
 
AnneArthur
It's a pity we don't see Avon when Anna first appears. Was he suspecting that she was Sula, or not?
 
Brad
Slightly exaggerated....


And that is the last we'll see of Avon's sanity. It takes a while, but as Tarrant says in Terminal, it's all downhill from here.

Despite all the hints, he was taken totally by surprise.

Servalan actually looks sorry for Avon.

Crumbs even after all these years and numerous rewatches it still gets to me.
Cold! You don't know the meaning of the word cold!
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of your window!!

I can't help it, I'm always silent for a while after watching this episode. Intense emotions. Can't decide what to do with it.

Well thank you for a lovely, if a bit sad, rewatch. See you all next week for yet another of my faves

Great rewatch - thank you all for the company! Good night and nice dreams of back shooting women (or shrunken Avons if you prefer)! Frown

G'night folks! Next week sometimes the dead come back to life...

Thank you for your company.
I will not be here next week I'm afraid. I will be busy getting things ready for the new course season.
But I will be joining you for the next rewatch on 6 September.

No, that's a middling to high for me. Not as good as City at the Edge of the World, for example. But I like to think that Anna was sincere, that she loved Avon and when she guessed that he was with Blake she became a convert to the political cause for his sake (ironically, more of a convert than he ever was), and that he destroyed a woman who would have been a valuable ally. The episode seems to demand that, IMO.

But certainly, this is where his mental decline sets in.
 
Paula
Love that episode. And on that 'high' note, I'll say good night. Good night!

Thanks for the rewatch. I won't be around next week, so see you for strange blue men and giant brains.
