Outside of Sickbay, Trip says they proved again that they make a "helluva team." T'Pol agrees that they do work well together. "Even more that we're in each other's heads," Trip says. Or in each other's...other things. T'Pol states, rather than asks, that Trip is returning to Columbia. Trip says he is, and thinks Kelpy can handle the rest of the repairs. T'Pol is doubtful. Trip stops walking and demands why T'Pol doesn't just say that she wants him to come back. T'Pol says that she pretty much just did, since she said his return would be "beneficial to [their] operations." Trip wants her to admit she wants him back. T'Pol says she doesn't know what he means. "My mistake," Trip bluffs, "see ya around." He starts to walk away. "Wait, Trip!" T'Pol says. Trip stops and looks at her. "I want you to come back," she heaves out. Trip nods and says he'll think about it. He starts to walk away again. "Trip!" T'Pol barks, and follows him. He rolls his eyes and turns around. She grabs his face and kisses him. They break apart. Trip nods and wipes his mouth. "Three days ago," he says, "I told Captain Hernandez I wanted to transfer back to Enterprise." So, you were playing with her head? That's real mature, buddy. Trip realized that he belongs on Enterprise, "and that this thing between us? Wuzzint such a big deal." T'Pol agrees. "Guess we got a lot of work to dew!" Trip says, and walks off. T'Pol takes several moments with herself before heading off in a parallel direction down a different corridor because her trajectory, paired with Trip's final comment, is supposed to be all meaningful and shit.
Next week: MIRROR UNIVERSE! I'm so excited -- this is going to be AWESOMELY SNARKABLE!
