Airdate:
USA: 28.09.2001
GER: 12.11.2002

Directed by: Jeff Woolnough


The second season of Dark Angel introduces new characters and conflicts. After blowing up Manticore’s genetic lab at the end of season one, Max is recaptured and attempts are made to reindoctrinate her into being a loyal soldier. However, the new director of Manticore Dr. Renfro, learns that some things just don’t get through to Max. All the same, Renfro decides Max’s rebellion can have it’s uses, and begins the development of a retro-virus targeted at the DNA of “Eyes Only”.

Meanwhile, Max has been introduced to the consequences of blowing up a genetics lab.
His designation is X5-494, and he’s been assigned as her breeding partner. X5-494 is the twin of Ben, a transgenic Max grew up with and whom she was forced to kill to save him from recapture. After Max renames him Alec (for “smart aleck”) and kicks him across the room, she continues with her plans for escape. Alec and her new ‘nomolie’ friend Joshua give her a hand to get out, and she runs to Logan - whom she promptly infects with the deadly retrovirus.

Que Alec, who has followed Max to Logan’s apartment under Renfro’s orders, to ensure the virus has done the trick. Alec informs Max that there’s an antidote, but she has to return to Manticore with Logan to recieve it. Never one to take orders, Max decides to instead finish the Eyes Only broadcast on the details of Manticore, which results in Renfro locking down and cauterizing the facility - along with everyone inside it.

With such a handy distraction, Max sneaks back in to swipe the antidote, and sets free the remaining transgenics while she’s at it (those who haven’t already been crispied).
Logan is given the antidote and recovers from the virus, and will continue to remain in good health - providing Max never touches him ever again. And as if Seattle doesn’t already have enough on it’s plate, there’s now a few hundred battle-trained transgenics on the prowl - some a little less than human.

I LOVE this episode! Max being back at Manticore, kicking ass as normally, all the flashbacks of her youth, this is one of my favourite eps!

i like this one too.
It's just a little moment during a bigger training, just serving to introduction :).

Maybe a little faster, for two x soldiers, could be better :).

bye!

great?!?!?! Look, lets make it clear, Dark angel never had any really good marial arts fights (except max vs ben and the last fight of the freaks vs the familiars), dark angel only had a few good moves. This fight wasn't even good.

I've been in martial arts for longer than I care to talk about, and my take on DA was that fights were hit and miss. Some were simple karate & wirework, some appeared to be more advanced ju-jitsu & rudimentary kung-fu.
The fights in the pilot, Rising, & Pollo Loco stand out as really excellent ones in season 1 for me. In season 2, Harbor lights and Freak Nation.

Designate This had some bad ones, yeah, but good fights in DA were a bonus to me; I watched it for the characters and story.

i can't remember exactly which ones i liked or not from which episode, but the max vs ben one was pretty good. I'll have to re watched them to remember. I just know that the one we're talking about above wasn't a good one
