Amanda can't find anything weird in the cabin; he immediately responds with an order to infiltrate the Willow house. Amanda's fully into that idea, for the same reason essentially that Lacy scratches out her days: It gives her somewhere to stand. Wrapped up, later in the day, in a blue scarf like the Virgin Mother, Amanda and Clarice finally move out of the cabin. Amanda asks to come home with her, and Clarice just blows her off. "Don't be silly. Anyway, I don't think my family would like it." The last thing Amanda sees before she gets in the cab is Clarice's holoband, peeking out of her bag. The last clue, the one that showed her Clarice was just another double agent.
Everybody on this show has a shitty life but I think Lacy's really going for the gold this week. All she did was hop onboard when her two best friends started dating. That's literally all she did. "Join a cult? Sure thing. Leave the planet...? Um, no. My abusive mother can't be expected to get her own box wine and cigarettes." And then before you know it, she's blowing up people and getting strangled and kidnapped and watching everybody she knows get shot in front of her. Drugs are not a long-term coping strategy but maybe it's best she won't really remember this week. Well, except for all the hot hugging action. Kind of a catch-22 there. So Lacy finally figures out, as she's downing more of the drugs, how they are drugs. She calls them motherfrakkers but it doesn't really hurt their feelings, and she passes out again. Caesura!
"...Want a drink?" No, apparently there's drugs in them. Daniel's in the Guatrau's office, I think, and Joe is telling him sort of elliptically that they're going to need to kill the shit out of Tomas Vergis. That is a total bummer because Vergis is great, but you can see where they're coming from: Vergis is a Tauron, which means one way or the other he is going to make some stupid goddamn Son of Mogh mess and then they'll have to clean it up and retaliate and then he'll retaliate and so on. The only way forward is to jump past that whole shiz and just kill him dead. Daniel wonders if this is Ha'la'tha policy or something Joe and Sam just feeling like doing, but the answer is always simpler when it comes to Taurons: Taurons are dipshits.
Think about it. Admiral Cain already made total sense, but this show is like, "No, for real, that's how she rolls. Taurons are just like this." Just terrible people.
Daniel points out that their whole sham of a blackmail scheme was to make it look like he got the company back legitimately, but that doesn't matter because now it's about Vergis coming after Daniel. Which he already did, but whatever: "He must be returned to the soil," Joe explains, because the stupider it is, the more likely Taurons have some folksy way of saying it.
