*Spoilers*

In “Pressurized,” Judy calls Dr. Smith and tells her she knows who she is, in spite of Don’s recommendation that she just wait and also tell Maureen in perkid. Will reveals that the robot made him a gun, and also that was the one Angela supplied to shoot him. Maureen and John wonder that offered the gun to Angela, and also fake Dr. Smith suggests it was Victor Dhar. They decide to ask Angela herself.

Penny wants to cheer Will up so she “teaches him to fly” by placing him in a spacesuit on a simulator. He puts his arms up in victory, yet that reminds him of the robot and also he retreats sadly to his room. Dr. Smith collects the robot parts to redevelop him. John and also Maureen fashion a hook to try to hoist the chariot out of the tar, yet it’s too late and also it sinks. Dr. Smith grows frustrated through the robot as it hasn’t fsupplied together yet. John apologizes and states he regrets going back to the military. Maureen starts crying and also tells him that she cheated to get Will in and that they wouldn’t be stranded if it weren’t for her. John tells her that she did the best point bereason she just wanted a far better life for the kids. The boy Don and also Judy conserved goes into shock and dies.

John proposes that Maureen take the spacesuit and gain out of the chariot, digging via the tar to the surconfront. He’ll be stuck in the muck and will suffocate, so she resists the plan at initially. She gets prepared to go yet eventually provides a various solution: use the helium in the HAB to develop enough push to disarea the tar. They make it out. Don offers to drive Judy to tell the boy’s brvarious other what occurred to him. Penny and also Will build a design of the robot to remember him. Dr. Smith is watching videos of Will documenting the sights on the planet as the robot starts to wake up.

I’m really enjoying the relationship in between Judy and Don West. I don’t know if they were great friends in any type of of the other versions of Lost in Void, however in this display they have some of the a lot of interesting interactions. Other than the robot, these are more than likely my favorite characters. It’s amazing exactly how everyone always assumes that bereason Don is a smuggler he need to be a self-interested jerk, but he keeps showing himself to be a selfmuch less and caring individual. At the same time everyone has actually been willing to accept Dr. Smith via open up arms approximately this point, no questions asked, and they’re simply currently founding to realize what she is. I’m not certain if it was intentional, however in this means Don and the robot are both good foils for Smith/June.

I figured the robot would be earlier, and also I’m really glad it looks like it’ll be soon. Since he was waking up at the finish of “Pressurized” he need to be up and running in episode 8. I wonder if he’ll be corrupted by his suffer and also work-related for Dr. Smith willingly; or he may follow her as a life-debt type of thing, prefer he did via Will. I’m also start to wonder if this robot is the one that assaulted the resolute after all. It’s plausible that tright here may be more than one robot of this type, and he’s never before shown any rearsenal of the occasions or hostility towards the humans (save in self-defense). While I actually choose Will’s connection with the robot, and also his interactions via Penny are good in “Pressurized,” I still sort of think he’s the leastern amazing character. He’s identified by everyone else and he doesn’t seem to have actually much of a personality. Judy and also also Penny have actually a lot more character. This feels like among those situations wbelow many assumed was put right into whatever other than the lead.

I loved the scenes with John and Maureen in “Pressurized” bereason they lastly make progress in their strained partnership. This entirety dyssensible marital relationship has been pretty boring to watch, and I’ve dreaded any kind of scene with Maureen. The long-awaited apologies are ultimately exadjusted in “Pressurized,” and also maybe now this annoying family drama can be left in the dust. Don’t get me wrong; family members drama doesn’t have to be a poor point, yet in this present it has actually been, particularly between these 2. The scene wbelow Maureen cries at the realization that she’s wasted so a lot time being angry is really great, not to point out satisfying. The character’s catharsis is a release for the audience also. Hopefully she deserve to be nice going forward.

I really don’t understand also why Judy calls June and tells her she knows who she is. That appears so stupid, and also Don tries to tell her not to. What excellent is it to say a bunch of suspicious, threatening stuff to someone when you’re simply going to tell the others around it anyway? Why clue her in that something’s not right? I’ve really been enjoying Judy’s scenes however this one is simply inane. I was glad the man she and also Don “save” ends up dying, because as soon as he first gets crumelted I was simply thinking how ridiculous it would be for him to survive such a predicament. And sometimes also if you’re doing the ideal thing the results are negative, so it’s excellent to see that occur on TV from time to time. It’s nice that Victor doesn’t rub it in their deals with, obtain mad at them or tell his wife it was their fault. Everyone dislikes him however he seems prefer a decent male from what we have seen.

I really appreciated “Pressurized.” The visuals are on suggest, the story is genuinely engaging and tright here are a lot of satisfying character interactions. The title “Pressurized” seems to have a dual interpretation, referring to the push that’s tearing the landscape apart and also the tension in between the characters. I would define the episode’s as a whole tone as tense, and that’s a great thing. I’m really excited for the robot to be repaired and also for Judy to ultimately tell her paleas about June.
