Wow great shot!  It’s rare for the actors to be in costume at a convention. And that particular one too....

I am glad people are enjoying the trip down memory lane.
Just a few more episodes to go.

That photo op with Michelle Lintel in costume reminded me just how hard Sci Fi channel was pushing this show in the beginning.

Episode eighteen PowerPlay

The conservative Deputy mayor seems to be taking the fall for all of the Mayors corruption.
She is electrocuted trying to save the Mayor when he is fooling around the city's new Electric Chair.
Her conservative clothes are destroyed and some sexy undergarments are revealed.


She gathers up scraps of wire and other electrical gear and becomes the electrified Super Villainess Stunner
 

While supercharging the electric chair many supervillains are released and it is up to Black Scorpion to round them up.
Slap Shot is apprehended on an ice rink with Black Scorpion out skating him.
I absolutely loved this scene and rewatched it several times.
I have always enjoyed Ice Skaters for their grace and poise.
Seeing a Skater in the Black Scorpion costume being graceful and powerful was a complete new thing to me.
 



Of course the episode would not be completer without the Black Scorpion being trapped in the electric chair!


This episode was directed by the actor Scott Valentine who plays Steve on the series.

That's Alison Armitage, really lame costume here but she's always been super-mega hot (remember the other tv serie Acapulco H.E.A.T. ?)

Episode 19 Photo Finish

The episode sets up with Steve remarking that he has never seen Black Scorpion and Darcy together.
Darcy remarks that they are two different people.



Vision breaks Flashpoint out of jail and they set out to unmask Black Scorpion.
Using a new camera that literally captures your likeness they are able to carry out their plan and the whole city now knows Darcy's secret ID.


The entire Police force is mobilized to arrest Darcy/ Black Scorpion.
Darcy comes up with a plan to have Dr. Phoenix clone her so they can be seen together.


And here is where I got worried.
I can not stand the "Good girl turns Bad" trope that we see again and again in these shows.
I thought that this episode was heading that way but it played out quite nicely as the clone argued for her right to exist.
However she was imperfect and brain damaged with her violent side taking control.

The debate raged on and the inevitable fights between Darcy and clone Black Scorpion were really clever.
Since they were basically the same person they were evenly matched and neither could get an advantage.


There is a great call back to the first episode where clone Black Scorpion quotes the Black Scorpion fairy tale:
"It's in my nature."

I thought they missed a beat and should have had Black Scorpion fight Black Scorpion so at the end you did not know which one survived.

Episode twenty Face the Music

Mayor Worth wants to get re elected and Captain Strickland is his number one opponent with a dead heat in the polls.

Meanwhile all girl punk/ grunge/ deth metal band Vox Populi and the Bleeding Eardrums is attacking the hecklers at a local night club.
First with their bad music and then with their fists.


Late night B movie and straight to video actress Shannon Whirry plays Vox

Darcy and Steve arrest them but Mayor Worth has them freed.
His plan is to use them as a distraction to raise the crime rate and make the Captain look bad.
With Subliminal advertising and songs like Brains on the Sidewalk, Drive By and Under Siege the young people start rioting and it is everything Black Scorpion can do to stop the senseless violence.


Darcy figures out what is going on and is most worried when the song Pop the Cop starts getting airtime as Veronica falls under the music's influence.


Darcy quickly makes an arrest as the Captain grabs the glory and rises in the polls.


Breaking jail Vox and the girls turn on the Mayor and plan to deafen the population with a roof top broadcast.
Black Scorpion has other plans.


The songs while not great are pretty clever and I have certainly heard worse.

On a side note the actress Angelica Bridges who plays Shriek also played Red Sonja in an episode of the Conan TV series.

Episode twentyone Zodiac Attack part one

The episode starts off with a thug assaulting a waitress in a back ally.
This is the first implied sexual assault depicted in the series so far.
Black Scorpion arrives in plenty of time and saves the girl and fights the pervert.
She avoids an aerial attack in a way most male heroes could never even attempt.


Crime is down in the city and the unmarried detectives are all transferred to the night shift.
Darcy and Steve start to re examine their relationship with a role reversal.
Steve wants to get serious and Darcy wants to remain friends.
 

The detectives wind up watching the Professor Profit tv show where he predicts the end of the world with air, fire, water, and earthquakes.
The Producer of the show threatens cancellation if Profit's predictions don't start coming true.


Profit, played by veteran comedian and kid show host Soupy Sales, and his co host Celeste take matters into their own hands and release the supervillians Hurricane, Inferno, Breathtaker and After Shock from crazy Dr. Phoenix's rehabilitation experiments and unleash them on the city.


Using Zodiac themed crimes the criminals individually wreck havoc on the city.
Using brain power Darcy and Steve and even the other detectives figure their plans and Black Scorpion stops them everytime.

Fans of throatlifts will appreciate how AfterShock treats two security guards.


Darcy sets up a stake out to catch Hurricane but Steve assumes it is a date.
He puts down an ultimatum about their relationship just as the waitress asks them if they are ready.
Darcy says she needs more time and the waitress excuses herself.

In a nice call back this is the same waitress from the opening scene.

Profit predicts the death of Black Scorpion and Black Scorpion confronts him.
He has united all the villains into one team now and they put the beat down on Black Scorpion defeating her.
This is the end of Part one.


This is a great episode!
The action scenes are really well done with once again the actors and stunt people are really giving it their all.
The episode takes place over several days with Darcy being featured in multiple sexy outfits both on the job and relaxing at home.
Part two is the last episode of the series :(

Episode twentytwo Zodiac Attack part 2

Picks up right where last episode left off.
Black Scorpion is defeated and lies semi conscious on the floor.


The Supervillains start bickering over who finished her and Black Scorpion uses the confusion to crawl away and escape.


The police arrive in force and Black Scorpion runs away in the confusion.
She is seen by video footage and the Press call her a coward.
Darcy's spirit is broken and she is genuinely afraid for her life.
She backhandly seeks out Steve who believes black Scorpion will save the day.
Darcy openly asks Argyle for advice and he tells her to get back in the fight.


The next day Darcy quits the police force and hangs up her costume.
Steve goes to her for an explanation and Darcy tries to seduce him.
Steve is a gentleman and resists her advances not wanting to take advantage of her at a low moment.
The Supervillains attack the entire city causing mayhem, mass destruction and massive loss of life.
Steve leads the police force against the Supervillains as First Responders from the surrounding counties rush to the aid of the city.

I really liked this part as ordinary humans stepped up when the Superhero falls.


In a desperate moment Arglye gets Dr. Phoenix to clone Darcy's father, a police officer whom she affectionately calls "The Lieutenant",  from a lock of his hair.
The clone is imperfect and will die in 24 hours, just enough time for the clone to snap Darcy out of her funk.


Recalling the Scorpion fable from episode one he tells her it is in their nature to fight for the right no matter what means is needed.
She is still reluctant but when he sets the example Black Scorpion quickly follows.


The Supervillains and Prophet are defeated however the Lt. is fatally wounded, he was going to die anyway and Darcy must watch him die once again.


The Black Scorpion once again watches over the city.

The End

This episode showcased Darcy as a real life human being who showed real emotion and was scared.
She showed doubt and uncertainty.
Just like a human.

However when the time came she stepped up and embraced her true nature.
They really teased her relationship with Steve in the closing minutes as the Captain interrupted them at the tipping point with a new assignment.

Her friend reformed car thief Argyle is a technological genius and he created all this gear.
It is never explained how it is done or who bankrolled the operation.
