"Tell me about your dream, Chief" is our welcome back from commercial. We flash to Chief walking, slowly, climbing a ladder up the wall, very damn slowly, in an orange safety suit. He finally reaches the top, walks along a catwalk in the hangar, the light blinding, shining up from the floor. He stands against the railing, and then one foot touches the railing wires, and he maneuvers himself very gracefully up over the railing, face set with purpose. Arms outstretched, he drops, down on to the hangar floor below. "Every night -- every night, it's the same," he tells Cavill. It's been happening for a couple of weeks. "And you were having the same dream when Cally woke you up, weren't you?" Cavill asks him. Chief says he doesn't remember -- twice, maybe once -- and gets all the way to "it doesn't really matter" before jumping to the post-trauma: "All I remember is Cally on the ground, and the blood." Cavill offers a somewhat spurious explanation for what happened next: "By waking you up, she prevented you from carrying out your secret desire to kill yourself." Tyrol gets all WTF: "I don't have a secret desire to kill myself." And Cavill almost laughs at him: "Well, actually, you're right. It's not a secret....The question is, why?" Tyrol makes a "huh" face, not exactly buying it just yet.
