Some kids knock on the door, which is open behind the curtain. Rygel sits on the couch, back to the door. "Trick or treat! Trick or treat! Trick or treat!" the kids scream, and Rygel invites them in. "Over here." A skeleton, a pirate, and a vampire enter the room. "Trick or treat, money or eats," says the pirate, and Rygel laughs. The skeleton approaches Rygel with bag held out. "Cool toy," he says, and reaches out to touch Rygel's mouth. Rygel opens his eyes and mouth, growling loudly, and the three kids take off screaming like hell. Rygel growls and then laughs madly and the kids cry to their moms. The skeleton drops his bag on the couch and all three kids scream and run out of the house. Rygel continues to growl and laugh as John comes in past the screaming kids. He grabs the bag from Rygel and tells him to cut it out. "But I love this! And you won't buy me any more! I want a Kit-Kat and M&M's and Pez and Reese's Pieces. All for me!" John takes off with the bag, ignoring him. "D? You all set?" Smoke comes from the fuse box, where D'Argo's setting the last charge.
Noranti sits outside in the swimming pool, stirring a kettle on Halloween. Chiana comms to ask -- stammering -- how much longer the serum's going to take. Noranti says it'll be at least thirty and asks if Chiana can "keep him occupied." She says she'll think of something, and Noranti rolls her eyes and smiles: "I'm sure you can. Hmm." Anybody else, I'd think they were calling her a slut, but it's Granny. I'm sure she knows the whole story already.
Karen Shaw climbs down off Betty's roof, down into the truck bed, where Johnny lies. "Okay," she says. To him, to herself. She straddles him. "Garage," they agree. She leans her forehead against his, distracting herself with his jacket buttons. "Is this, uh...your...f...first?" He nods. "Is this how you...you imagined...it?" He looks up at her. "Not in Betty. I always thought it'd be in my Dad's four-wheel drive." They kiss. Karen pushes Johnny's jacket back, down off his shoulders.
Neural Cluster. "Does Grayza know you're my spy?" Scorpius asks. "No, but she'll figure it out when she discovers you're alive." Um, like you just did? Scorpius tells him Grayza must never know he's alive. "We've got to stop her!" says Braca. "She's organizing a peace initiative with the Scarrans!" Scorpius hisses, saying they're just using her. "They'll agree to everything, then betray us when their forces are battle-ready." He tells Braca to stall her. "I'm not given to exaggeration, but...the future of Peacekeeper survival depends on you."
