Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Season Two of Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda picks up where the first-season cliffhanger "Its Hour Come Round at Last" left off. Thanks to a malfunctioning Rommie (Lexa Doig), the ship has been overtaken by the hideous Magog, and crew members Tyr (Keith Hamilton Cobb) and Harper (Gordon Michael Woolvett) are injected with millions of Magog eggs. Rommie and Hunt (Kevin Sorbo), both considerably the worse for wear after their past experiences, head to the Magog home world to rescue their comrades, ordering Beka to blow up the enemy planet within three hours whether they've returned or not. Meanwhile, born-again Rev Bem (Brent Stait) succumbs to the bestial side of his nature during a confrontation with the Magog Bloodmist (Gerard Plunkett). And still another, still more horrifying threat to the Andromeda is introduced: the Abyss. "The Widening Gyre" was first telecast in Canada on September 22, 2001, and in the U.S. on October 1, 2001.
