In the season finale, the Mekon returns seizes a space station and then puts Dare's ship into automatic launch mode as part of an elaborately planned death trap. However, he actually ensnares Digby and a bright young cadet and it's up to Dan, Peabody, and an aging Major from the academy to come to the rescue---or is that just into the Mekon's trap.
The first fifty-six minutes of this episode is a really solid action adventure that lives up to the high standards of the series, and really in the first four chapters that main story is resolved which led me to a bit of confusion as the story carried on for even more to happen. Truth be told, this episode has two stories, the action/adventure of the first fifty-six minutes and another story that features a mental duel between Dan Dare and the Mekon.
This final bit is glorious. It's filled with shocking revelations and allegations. We get to hear what the Mekon has really learned about the human race and Dare gives him a true and inspiring education about what he missed. It's probably Dare's finest hour in this CD set and given how many great moments he's had, that really says a lot.
Overall, this final episode is exciting, inspiring, and a bit mind-blowing. It's a great representative of the entire series that leaves me wanting more.
