The trooper and his chief, warrant in hand, head toward the house.
Johnny sits in a stuffed chair in the drug house, watching TV. Looking kinda sleepy. Noranti creeps into the room to Chiana, watching him from behind a pillar. "You can do this?" she asks, handing Chiana a glass. "No problem. Just make sure everyone stays out of sight until he drinks it." She kneels beside him, smiling. "Hey," they say. "Here," she says, handing him the glass. He drinks it and she takes his hand. "It's okay?" He smiles at her. "Yeah."
Over the TV you could barely hear the squad car returning. Aeryn enters from the back, wearing black under her long coat: "We've got trouble. Two enforcers." John darts a finger at Chiana -- "Stay down!" -- and heads for the window, freaking Johnny out. "Hang on! You're that guy that..." The stuff gets him and he drops. John tells Chiana to keep him down as he goes into shock, then seizure. She bends over him: "Crichton? Crichton!" Aeryn and John check it out. "Old Woman!" he swears to himself. "I thought she tested this stuff." Chiana and John hold onto Johnny, jerking and gasping, scared out of their minds. "Is this supposed to be happening?" asks Chiana, as Noranti hurries in. John feels Johnny's jugular: "No pulse. I've got no pulse!" He stares at Noranti as the police knock at the front door. "Open up!" Chiana tries to get John's attention, finally pointing out that his arm is going Marty McFly before their very eyes. Even as the police are demanding entry, everybody's staring at John as he vanishes.
Commercial. To the sound of the police bashing at the door, D'Argo runs in, asking after Crichton. Who is now completely invisible. Noranti tells him to chill: "Everything's under control." John begins to shout. "I'm gone! What happens next? I lose my voice?" (Um, ouch?) Aeryn, from the door: "I wish. Keep your voice down." Heh. Noranti figures out that the sheriff probably outweighed Johnny by more than she thought. John and Aeryn beg her to just get it together and bring John back, but she just points at Johnny: "His body has stopped functioning, and you are ceasing -- wherever you are -- to exist." I guess you've gotta have this in a time-travel story, if you visit your younger self. I was happy just with the Karen Shaw stuff. This is an extra act where no extra act needs to be. It's such a good episode. Aeryn finally allows as how they need to let the cops in. "...Let's open it up now." She and Chiana nod to each other, and Noranti pops something nasty in her mouth and starts chewing. D'Argo agrees to take the larger of the cops, Aeryn pushes back the curtain and opens the door, smiling brightly: "Hello!" They walk in, nodding at her; D'Argo slams the sheriff face-first into a wall, as Aeryn punches the trooper in the gut, dropping him.
