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.
"Grandma," says John's voice. "Fix me." She chews calmly, addressing the empty space: "You're just a nookie!" Heh. "Haven't you ever died before?" she asks, approaching Chiana and tapping in. She kneels down over Johnny's face, and spits a long wad of something into his mouth. Aeryn just about pukes, but whatever. It's Noranti. You burnt out your barf threshold with her a long time ago. I actually like how nasty she is: she's the opposite of Zhaan in even that way. Noranti covers Johnny's mouth with hers, and Aeryn gets worried, running over to them. I like how, even though she's actually had to sit through John dying, Aeryn's not actually all that concerned about Johnny. Just fix it. Johnny breathes, John stares at his hands coming true again, and Johnny passes out. Noranti's like, "See?" but John still doesn't feel completely de-McFlyed. Noranti hopes it'll pass -- covering that she didn't want to bring Johnny back too quickly -- but maybe he should use it to his advantage somehow.
Rygel watches the trooper crawling around; he begs Rygel: "Who are you people?" Noranti hunkers down, third eye glowing pink. "Aliens!" The trooper looks from her to D'Argo, who tongues him. The guy falls back against the wall and D'Argo gets ready to set all the smoke charges. "Right. Let's get 'em into the garage." She picks up Johnny. Aww.
