Always love following Farscape threads. I think the next episode is the one that may not seem very important, but it adds to the powerful emotional aspects of a future episode in Season 2.
Glad you're enjoying the show so far. As for Old Black Magic, I enjoyed it, but it wasn't the best episode of the season. I think we got a lot more in regards to the Crichton/Crais storyline and at the time, I think it was needed.
