I can't believe Jennifer Fucking Love Hewitt is in this new A Christmas Carol, and from the looks of it? She's Fanny. Apt, don't you think?
After commercials, Soval joins Trip and Reed in Sickbay. Quick rehash on the fact that not all Vulcans can mindmeld, and that mindmelding is looked upon as deviant behavior. Once Phlox assures Soval that he can prove that the DNA on the bomb was planted, and Trip suggests a conspiracy theory, Soval mutters, "The needs of the many," and steps up to perform the meld.
T'Pol and Quantum run as the "sandfire" follows them with lightning bolts. B'eastmaster directs them to safety in some caverns. Even though T'Pol's the one with the superior strength, B'eastmaster asks Quantum to help him move boulders to block up the opening. It's great how B'eastmaster tries and fails to make the Styrofoam rocks look heavy. T'Pol helps out by stuffing pebbles here and there. B'eastmaster recognizes T'Pol's locket and asks where she got it. T'Pol tells him it's from her mother. "T'Les," B'eastmaster says. "You're a Syrrannite," T'Pol says, backing away as if it's catching. "The daughter of T'Les serves on a human starship," B'eastmaster says. He's going to end up being T'Pol's "dead" T'Pa, isn't he? B'easmaster ignores T'Pol's CRACK WHORING questions about the safety and whereabouts of her mother, and turns to Quantum to identify him as the one responsible for the destruction at P'Jem. B'eastmaster approves of that destruction. "You seem to know a lot about us -- I'm guessing that means you know why we're here," Quantum pants. Strategically placed lightning crashes. B'eastmaster SMILES slightly and says that T'Ma is safe at some sanctuary. "I'll guide you both there when the storm has passed." Unless you die first. Quantum, inexplicably, makes angry faces. He's just NEVER happy, is he? Jackass.
