She-Ho giggles as she carefully averts her face so as not to get any of his champagne in her mouth. Evil Leaper starts to pass out. Then he grunts and falls off the bed to the floor with the sheet still covering his nasty bits. She-Ho sort of checks on him before running to the door and letting in...May-Evil! May-Evil regards the crawling Evil Leaper impassively as She-Ho brings his face to hers and they mack. Evil Leaper furrows, stretches one arm out, and collapses. Good night, sweet prick. Wait, he's dead? Oh my god, he's DEAD! THEY KILLED HIM!! QUANTUM'S DEEEEEEAAAAAD! Aw, the writers do care! You know what that is? That's an automatic "A" right there.
She-Ho and May-Evil march onto the Bridge, and She-Ho orders a comm link opened to Gardiner. She orders Starfleet's immediate surrender or else they will begin targeting their cities. Gardiner blusters into view and wonders what the hell she's on about: "Where's Archer -- who the hell are you?" "You're speaking with EM-press Sato," She-Ho announces, "prepare to receive instructions." She smiles. Atta girl! I think what I loved most about this episode is that the forgotten, killed, ignored, and made invisible Hoshi and May-Whozzit finally get to trump everyone and come out on top. In spite of May-Whozzit's redshirt.
Next week: Trip and T'Pol have a baby. And I get labor pains.
