Max must flee the city when she becomes Seattle's most wanted; meanwhile, Logan undergoes a delicate surgical procedure.
Having recaptured Brin, Lydecker returns to Seattle to pick up where he left off. Instead of scouring the city for Max, however, he will make the city bring Max to him. He plasters wanted posters with Max's likeness all over the city, offering a reward for $50,000 for the murderer of Dan Vogelsang.
Meanwhile, Dr. Carr informs Logan that he needs surgery to remove a bullet fragment that was left in his spine when he was shot a few months back. The bullet has shifted, and now poses a significant risk to Logan's health. The operation is risky, but leaving the fragment where it is could be worse.
That evening, Logan comes home to find Zack waiting for him. He fills Logan in on the wanted posters that pepper the city. He's convinced that Max's only chance to avoid Lydecker is to leave Seattle with him immediately. Though uneasy with the idea of Max leaving, Logan knows Zack is right.
Zack and Logan bail Max out of a close call with some of Lydecker's men, and Logan arranges for Max and Zack to leave the country and hole up in his family's cabin. With Max in the dark about his upcoming medical procedure, Logan and Max share a tender kiss goodbye before he returns to the city.
That night, Max and Zack have a moment of quiet in which Max discovers that her big brother isn't always the tough commander he makes himself out to be. As Max tries to sleep, however, she's troubled by the nagging feeling that Logan needs her. When she calls Seattle, her fears are confirmed by Bling, who tells her that Logan is going under the knife. Max resolves to come back to Logan, but Zack chastises her - she's risking her life going back to a city that has declared her a public enemy. The two come to blows over Max's decision, and Zack has to wash his hands of her. If she's going to put her life on the line for foolish sentimentality, she'll do so without him.
Max returns to find a post-op Logan in dire straits. He's in desperate need of a blood transfusion, but the Seattle blood banks are practically drained. Lucky for Logan, the X5 class was engineered to be universal donors. She gives Logan the blood he so badly needs, and the two of them share a vision of a beautiful ballroom... of Logan out of his chair... of dancing.
That's when the authorities burst in and take Max into custody. Luckily for her, though, another suspect has stepped forward and confessed to the murder of Vogelsang. That suspect, much to Max's surprise, is Zack. As much as he disagreed with his sister's decision to return to Seattle, he couldn't stand idly by and let her take the rap for a crime he committed. Max is set free, but Zack is taken back to Manticore. When the chopper carrying him crashes, however, Max is able to hold on to the hope that Zack escaped from his captors.
This was the last new episode for 2000 and all I can say is…wow!! That's it, that's the end of the review. See you next year!!
If only it were so easy. I actually have no idea if anyone reads these reviews, except for my friends who I threaten with bodily harm if they don't, but I do them anyway. It's a chance for me to rant and rave I guess. Anyway, DARK ANGEL is a good show to review. It has been one of this years pleasant surprises. A show I will tune into week after week just to see what...
