Well, it's not like Carter could have asked Allison out, since she's still talking about Stark and how excited he would have been to see the ship return since he never gave up hope that it would come back. That's why we must never give up hope that Stark will come back. Henry has something in common with Allison in regards to the ship: his dead old flame also worked on it. In fact, he met Kim while working on the project. Maybe, if the project was in the planning stages for many years before the eventual launch, as we know they met more than twenty years ago because it was clearly stated in Kim's first appearance on the show back in Season 1. Also, will no one mention Kim's crappy husband who stole all of her memories while working alongside with Kim and Henry at that time? Wasn't that kind of a significant part of their past? What's the point in giving this show a backstory if they can't even keep it consistent after less than thirty episodes?
Carter's smile disappears as he hears a humming sound. He calls out for Henry, saying the ship is powering back up. Henry says that can't be -- the ship turned itself off. Tess appears and says it turned itself back on again, and now it wants to open the door. Allison calls for GD security. Yes, quickly! Get a bunch of people here who can't/won't do anything useful! Remember when Tess was all anti-weapons last week? Well, now that the ship isn't alien, she couldn't care less if any possible occupants are blown away before they can say "hello" or "gorblesnax." A pod lowers to the ground with a figure inside. As the smoke clears, it collapses. Henry decides to get a closer look. It's a human covered in goo. She looks familiar. "It's Kim," Henry says, not really sounding or looking all that surprised. But I am! I did not expect to see her ever again, both because she got blasted into a wall last time we saw her and was a part of Season 1, which the show seems to have forgotten existed. Does this mean Spencer could return? Or Taggart? Or those weird twin guys? Or Beverly Barlowe? Or Andrew Crosby? These would all be welcome comebacks! Except for Spencer. I mean, come on.
