Final Space 3×06

Adult Swim tweeted this the other day which I reckon gives a good indication of how the rest of this season is gonna go.

Hmm, this was one of the weaker episodes so far I think, especially considering how good last week’s episode was. The more I think about it the more I’m not a fan of Ash’s sudden redesign because it makes no sense whatsoever, why is Invictus giving her a cool new undercut and a new eye suddenly a priority. If there had ever been some indication that Ash was unhappy having only one eye or there had been some trauma linked directly to that, that would be different, but there never was.

Olan Rogers did try to explain it on Twitter:

but I dunno, it was just a thing that came so completely out of nowhere.

And again lots of Tribore bits in this episode and again ugggggh. Also “being able to contact the dead” is a really random thing to throw into a comedy bit when the stakes are so high elsewhere in this universe.

This was sort of a meh episode I think (can’t win ’em all) except for the very touching, very poetic expression of love from Gary to Quinn at the end.
