I can't remember which episode it was, but Paul said that they had to run through a field with explosives, David Jackson said he would catch Paul, which he did. Both Paul and Gareth said that it could have gone wrong very easily, as they only needed to run too fast or trip and they could have been hurt badly.

I may be wrong but think that was Gan's last episode
Anyone else?

Michael Keating mentions in the DVD voice-overs he had an eye injury from the explosion on the gate in Seek-Locate-Destory. He has had to wear glasses ever since.

Strange episode,or least the ending.It's like they all blame Zeeona for what her father did and are practically telling her to fall on her sword.It appears as if Avon knew what she was planning and I think Soolin also.Vila seems indifferent,and...well..idiotic.Throughout the entire episode actually.It didn't look like Dayna knew,and she was the only one besides Tarrant that showed a hint of remorse.And Avon looked almost happy.Was that his way of paying Tarrant back for everything or was he losing it?

Have you noticed that Avon seems to have a slightly higher opinion of Tarrant in Blake? Maybe he saw some parallel between Zeonna's death and Anna Grant's. I think by that stage Avon was obsessed with death and probably saw losing the one you most care about as a badge of honour. I think that there were was more than just the quest for a figurehead that drove him to find Blake.

I did notice that in Blake they both seem more respectful of each other,and I suppose it could have been due to some sort of bonding because of losing a loved one.That still doesn't explain why Avon and the crew practically tell Zeeona to kill herself.Avon and Dayna both lost someone close,you would think they would be sympathetic.

Perhaps they were scared of an 'outsider' coming into the group?

Vila is much more sullen and agressive than usual in this episode. He looks like he's going to hit Zeonna which is unchracteristic and he seems ready to give up and die rather than leap on any chance for escape.

Maybe this is a result of his experience with Avon in Orbit? Vila as a man who likes to be lead - he clearly liked the sense of direction Blake gave him and seemed uncomfortable with the status of hero that Norl's people would have given him in City. When Avon talks about Blake's followers having a gift for being lead, he is fairly accurately summing up aspects of Vila's personality.

In Orbit, the man who is leader proves himself quite capable of killing him. Vila learns that a man who has a lot of power over him is totally indifferent to whether he lives or not. As viewers, we could probably have guessed this before 'Orbit' but for Vila this is the moment it bring it home. He has tended to get through sitautions with a mixture of humour and fast talking but in the wake of Avon's behaviour he has lost faith even in these to save him.

It's quite noticible that Vila seems to anticipate their deaths before the rest. Avon's paranoid self obsession and Tarrant's romantacism blind them to the reality of their situation. However, as early as Sand Vila is reflecting on his mortality and of course it is he who in 'Blake' says that one day will go do down into an underground hole amnd never come back. By the end of series 4, Avon is insane and Tarrant and Dayna have had their 'heart's broken' for want of a better phrase. Vila on the other hand, is losing his humour and his gift of the gab - and perhaps that more than anything tells us how desperate their situation is becoming.

Vila`s still wary of Avon - not surprising is it ?

Avon was very reluctant to leave Tarrant behind on the crashing Scorpio, and when he saw him on Blake's base he was sincere when he told Tarrant that he was glad he made it.
Avon believes Tarrant when he tells him that Blake has sold them all out.
Mistakenly as it turns out, but the Blake in the tracking gallery is so different than what Avon was expecting, which may have partly caused his lapse in judgement.

Soolin has uncharacteristic lapses in judgement also, both in the miners hut in the forest and on the base.
She would normally have been the first to start firing at the first sign of trouble and was too easily shot by the Federation guards.

I think Soolin was fazed by being back on Gauda Prime and the memories probably clouded her thinking.

You're probably right, CB.
Even though Soolin looked tough, inside she had a vulnerable side, especially when it came to her family.
