Syd makes it into the back of the truck, and the guy who's guarding Grasshoppah goes to shoot at her. Grasshoppah quickly gets rid of the gun and Syd knocks the guard out the back of the truck. "Thank you!" she says to Grasshoppah as she turns to his bindings. Hee. It's a totally girly "thank you" too. Heh. Syd tells Grasshoppah to follow her. Grasshoppah's all, wait, I can't leave without my wheatgrass juice and nag champa incense! Syd climbs out and, at that precise moment, Sark's daydreaming about all the neat stuff he's going to do with The Passenger. His eyes wander over to the side mirror, and FINALLY he sees Vaughn on the horse. He grabs his driver's gun and leans out. Syd makes it onto her horse and reaches out her hand as Grasshoppah exits the back of the truck. Well, this is actually kind of stupid. If I were him, I'd just stop, drop, and roll out into the sand. It wouldn't kill him, the trucks would keep going, and Syd and Vaughn could easily dispatch Sark, who'd be a sitting duck in his moving truck. But, sigh, that's not what happens. Instead, Grasshoppah tries to reach for Syd, Sark shoots him in the chest, he flies out of the truck, and the convoy keeps going.
Syd jumps off her horse and goes over to Grasshoppah. He's failing fast. Vaughn brings the horses over and watches as Syd tries to attend to the man. "They have The Restoration," he gasps. Oh, here we go again with the "The" names. Ignore. Ignore ignore. Glug glug glug. "The Passenger is compromised," he gasps some more. Syd removes her turban and tells him to breathe. As she bends over him, he says, "It's you." Syd stops and looks at him. "The Passenger she is your destiny," he says. "How is she my destiny?" asks Syd. "As a friend? As an enemy? Tell me -- tell me that. Is The Passenger my mother?" "The Passenger is your sister " Syd throws a look at Vaughn, who just looks back at her with an expression of mild constipation. Sorry. He does. Grasshoppah dies as The Horns Of Damn, We Didn't See That Coming kick into high gear.
Oops Center. For those of us who missed the first ten minutes of the show, Syd conveniently recaps what's happened so far for Jack. She's all, dude? The monk told me The Passenger was my sister. Jack's all, who was this guy? Syd's all, are you fucking serious? Bozo the damn Clown, that's who he was! Does it matter? Do I have a sister or not? Jack doesn't know. What he does know, however, is that Spy Mommy had an affair, and that that affair was with none other than Uncle Arvin. If she had a child, it's a good chance that Arvin's the dad. Syd goes to have a little one-on-one with old Uncle Arvy.
