Now: D'Argo admits blackouts do happen, but protests that he "learned to control all that." Even John's like, "So you got the problem licked?" D'Argo explains that young Luxans are genetically violent: "Their impulses, chemistry, biology...it takes cycles to master. It's why Luxans aren't allowed to marry young." So of course D'Argo did. "She said she knew I could never hurt her. Even more than that, I gave her my solemn vow...if I did ever hurt her, I would leave immediately, no questions." John's like, "So that worked out really well for you, huh?" "Lo'Laan was always there for me." Which is kind of the rub, because, given the blackouts, that puts the entire Tronball in her court: if he can't remember whether or not he hurt her, but he's threatened to leave if he does, then it's completely in her best interest to lie.
Rygel is gasping and groaning and drooling; in the arena, the ball's right in his face. "Excuse me, Master Jedi? Looks like Sparky's losin' more than a few brain cells in there." Katoya's like, "Indeed." John asks if there's real danger just as Rygel screams and goes into some kind of seizure. John orders Katoya to stop the game, Katoya's like, "It's Rygel's call," which I appreciate, but that's not good enough for Johnny: he turns to D'Argo all, "Okay, let's get him out." Katoya Jedi's them across the room again, and inside the arena, the Charrid's got the ball right up in Rygel's face for a good long time, causing all kinds of pain and foam, but Rygel finally spikes it right into his forehead, ending the game.
D'Argo carries Rygel into the refectory like a tiny little farting baby: "He's like ice." John advises D'Argo to keep him covered, and turns up the stairs to bitch at Katoya for not "stepping in before somebody got hurt." John's being really horribly American right now. Katoya tries, once again, to explain about adults and how adults make choices and how you let them because they are adults, but John's not hearing it, and he starts talking about leaving again. "Your training isn't over," Katoya tells him, and John's all, "Oh, yes it is," so Katoya Jedis him down the stairs hardcore and he passes out on his stupid face. "It's just begun." Dude, I hope they fuck him up. John's being unbearable in this episode.
Macton bows to Katoya -- "Master" -- and the class sits. Scorpius and D'Argo come in last, D'Argo giving Katoya the hairy eyeball, and Scorpius explains that John's fine: "He's been moved to remedial training." D'Argo turns his stink-eye to Macton as Scorpius comments that Rygel's recovering. D'Argo: "Yeah, I wasn't thinking about that, either." Um, cool? Scorpius nods at Macton and says he's quite aware, but maybe he should be like the other grown men in the room and stop acting like Crichton: "Attempt to remain focused on your more immediate tasks first." Doesn't seem like he's asking a lot, does it? D'Argo growls at Scorpius and Katoya asks, once again, for him to get classy. D'Argo glares at Scorpius and stalks off; Scorpius begs him to stay focused.
