Spoiler Summary

Lucian Alliance prisoner Simeon escapes, creating a manhunt on a remote planet.

Ginn, using the stones to trade bodies with Dr. Amanda Perry, continues to fill in Homeworld Command of an impending Lucian Alliance attack. Suspecting she's giving up valuable information Simeon manufactures an escape by killing his guard then making his way to silence Ginn.

Taking Park hostage, Simeon forces Volker to dial a planet and escapes off the ship. When Rush finds Ginn's lifeless body, knowing what it means for Dr. Perry, he gates to the planet on a mission of vengeance. But Homeworld Command, believing Simeon has information that could prevent an attack on Earth orders he be captured alive. Col. Young must send Lt. Scott and Msgt. Greer to bring Simeon back before he kills Rush or is killed himself.

Production Notes

  • "In other writerly news, Paul and Carl are brainstorming #6 and #7, while Rob and Remi look to tackle #8 and #9." — Joseph Mallozzi, February 11, 2010
  • "Rob is off on a “distant location” scout for episode #8, but returns to Vancouver Sunday night." — Joseph Mallozzi, March 5, 2010
  • red writes: “Do you guys have any location shooting planned for season 2? Location shooting as in Nevada/New Mexico, not “20 miles from Vancouver”.” Answer: "As a matter of fact, we do. Rob will be racking up the airmiles when it comes time for him to direct Malice." — Joseph Mallozzi, March 27, 2010
  • "... Lawren walks in and hands me Rob’s first draft of Malice. I head back to my office and read it. Great script! It’s going to be one hell of a location shoot!" — Joseph Mallozzi, April 15, 2010
  • "Robert is in New Mexico shooting Malice... Busy, busy!" — Joseph Mallozzi, May 12, 2010
  • "Rob is in New Mexico shooting episode #8, Malice (his version of The Searchers)." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 14, 2010
  • "We screened back to back director’s cuts today: episode 207 (The Greater Good) and episode 208 (Malice). Great stuff. This first half will see a narrative progression very similar to what we saw in the back half of season one, with various story elements building to occasionally explosive conclusions. Plenty of secrets, surprises, and shocking revelations." — Joseph Mallozzi, June 14, 2010
  • "They say that vengeance is a dish best served cold, but this episode makes a great case for serving it hot – as in the scorching environs of an alien world where a deadly game of cat and mouse plays itself out." — Joseph Mallozzi, June 22, 2010
  • In sci-fi, you can do most anything story-wise. When Robert C. Cooper asked Robert Carlyle what he's never done that he'd like to do, he answered "a Western". Much to his surprise and delight, it was given to him by Cooper in "Malice". They filmed in New Mexico and got that Western feel. Along with "The Greater Good", Carlyle thinks that "Malice" is the best of the episodes this season. — Flick Direct interview, posted August 9, 2010
  • "We’ve been deluged with mixes! Awakening yesterday, Malice today, and The Greater Good tomorrow. ... Malice (written, directed, and produced by Rob Cooper) is an intense, action-filled, thoroughly engaging episode, one of those entries you can watch over and over again. We had very few notes on the mix and, shortly after the screening, I emailed Rob to congratulate him on a job well done and commend him for actually using very little music. The silences were eerie and very effective. To which Rob responded: 'Thanks. I should have told you guys that many of the cues are actually missing. Joel’s been on vacation. Some of the music that’s in there may actually be placeholders. I’m going to his studio in LA to work on the music next week.' Oh. Never mind then." — Joseph Mallozzi, August 24, 2010
