Lexx 2.1 – Mantrid (Dec 11, 1998)
Kai, possessed by His Divine Shadow, leads the crew back to the Light Zone to retrieve an insect larva from the remains of the cluster. The crew then goes to meet Mantrid, former Supreme Biovizier for The Divine Order, in order to convince him to extract protoblood from the insect larva. The ageing Mantrid plans to use the insect’s transference organ to transfer himself into a new machine body. Mantrid’s besotted assistant transfers Mantrid’s essence from his dying body to the machine body. The crew flees to Lexx and attempts to destroy it, but Mantrid’s machine escapes.
Lexx 2.2 – Terminal
Kai is awoken incorrectly, and punctures Stan’s heart. After transferring the Key to Zev, they seek assistance at the MedStat, a large medical space hospital. The threat of the Lexx’s power encourages the medical staff to help, but it emerges that they wish to take the Lexx and use it for their own ends. This is the last episode to feature Zev.
Lexx 1.04 – Giga Shadow (Sept 11, 1997)
To resupply the protoblood that sustains Kai’s life, the crew of the Lexx travel back to the Cluster but when they arrive they find the planet deserted. The population was killed in “The Cleansing”, in preparation of the birth of the Gigashadow, the last survivor of the insect wars and sworn enemy of humanity.
Guest stars Malcolm McDowell.
Lexx 1.03 – Eating Pattern
Out of energy, the Lexx is forced to land on a planet to replenish its energy supply. Zev and Stan bury the apparently dead Kai, before they discover a lost outpost seemingly occupied by lunatics led by a manic Rutger Hauer.
Lexx 1.02 – Super Nova
In the hopes of extending Kai’s un-life, Zev decides they should go to Brunnus the original planet of the Brunnen-G. The only thing they find when they get there are holographic messages left by the “Poet Man” (Tim Curry). Meanwhile, Giggerota forms a deal with the Divine Predecessors to betray the crew of the Lexx. The sun of Brunnus begins to go supernova as the Brunnen-G stabilizers are deactivated, but the sun and its orbiting blue star speak to Kai and Zev, while the Time Prophet speaks to Stan through a recording, helping them to recover the Lexx.
A moth strands Giggerota on top of one of the stabilizer towers (in punishment for her eating part of it), and she dies in the explosion of the sun as the Lexx flies to safety

Episode 1.01 – I Worship His Shadow (April 18 1997)
His Divine Shadow rules The Cluster with dark powers and an impenetrable bureaucracy. As fate would have it, four unlikely heroes are thrown together to wreak havoc on The Cluster: Zev, a strong willed but hideously ugly orphan transformed into a sexy love-slave; 790, a Zev-obsessed robot head; Kai, a poet-warrior transformed into an empty headed assassin by His Divine Shadow; and Stanley H. Tweedle, a bumbling Class 4 Security Guard. The leader of the freedom fighters is played by guest star Barry Bostwick.
