Back at GD, Jo enters the lab where Carter and Zane are finishing up the module. Jo asks Carter to beat it so she can have some alone time with Zane. He grants this because it isn't like they're under a time crunch or the stakes if they fail are dire or anything. As soon as Carter's out the door, Jo makes out with Zane. I liked her better with Taggart, wherever he is. Zane says he should risk his life more often. Jo says she doesn't want him to. But she doesn't speak for all of us, Zane! Go ahead and risk your life a couple more times. Off-camera, please. He nervously asks her not to "go all serious" on him. She already has. Hugs! Zane is slightly more likable when he's next to Jo.
Eva somehow managed to get out of the town-wide evacuation she ordered, and is roaming the halls of GD. She comes across Carter and is furious to see he's disobeyed her orders once again. Meanwhile, she disobeyed her own orders, so I think they're even. He says he thinks Zane's module (way to not give Henry any credit, Carter) will work. And if it doesn't, dying is part of his job, just like it was part of the bunker skeletons' jobs. How does he know that? He doesn't even know who they are, let alone what their jobs were. Eva tells him to stop assuming he knows anything about her or what she's doing there. Carter says he's just getting started. Better finish soon, Carter, since her last episode is next week! Eva shows a possibly human side when she says she's learned that no one should ever be left behind for any reason, including Carter. Jo and Zane finish their cuddling and come out into the hall, giving Carter the chance to tell Jo to enforce the evacuation and get Eva out of there.
After some bad dubbing over a shot of the Jeep driving towards the rocket launch site, Carter grabs the really lame-looking module (seriously, it looks like it fell of the 1950s sci-fi film prop truck) and puts it on the ground as Zane powers up the launching computer. Also, the air is all red, which means it must be really hot outside. Zane stupidly gives the rocket a ten-second countdown. At second seven, the mini-sun flares and the module's circuits fry and explode. Carter immediately calls Allison on his phone, the circuits of which do not fry or explode. She says GD has some equipment that will work in lieu of the launcher, but Zane says they'll never make it back to GD in time. Of course, Kylie has an idea: they can use Herrera's cloud seeding launcher. Herrera says there's no way Carter and Zane can get that close to the sun without dying. Oh, but wait: Carter's got a pocketful of green slime. Product Placement lab saves the day! But then, was there really any doubt it would? Frankly, I'm surprised it took this long.
