"Gilina, I want you out of here." "If you die here, John, I die too." I'm bored. What's Aeryn doing? I want to be clear that I don't think they did a bad job of making it seem realistic that they'd like each other, or be all romantic and "if you die here" with each other. I buy it. I just don't care all that much. I love Gilina, I love John. They're great. But I get it, and somewhere on the Zelbinion Aeryn is shooting at shit. Shit that might blow up. It's hard to concentrate. Let's put a check mark in the "I bought the premise of the episode" box and get back to what's important: Aeryn.
"He keeps blocking my route, forcing me to take the long way around. You many have to defend yourself!" John replies that it's a long story, but his hands are literally full right now, so she needs to get her hot ass back to the array. Where the froggy has just found John. "And make it fast. Because ugly's outside the door right now. Aeryn, get here. C'mon, Aeryn." Mostly to himself by this point. If I were Aeryn, I'd be like, "Oooooh, I'm in trouble! My awesome girlfriend doesn't have a gun, just a screwdriver and a yearning to transgress! Whatever will I do?" And then I'd take it real damn slow.
Just kidding, I would totally walk through fire for that man: "They spit fire? How come nobody tells me this stuff? How come nobody told me they spit fire?!" See? Cute. Aeryn runs all over hell and back trying to get to him; Gilina keeps working. John keeps standing there. Commercials at some point.
Froggy gets in and John totally says, "Oh, shit." He welcomes the Sheyang into the room and tells him to loot away, but if the two panels touch...FIREBALL! John dodges, nicely, but then screws it up by punning: "Listen gas-hole, you kill us, you kill yourself!" Honor Frog tells him they already had their chance to retreat. John invites him to come a little closer, and then Aeryn (a) slides down a chain from out of the sky, (b) with her gun pointing at the thing, (c) sticks a solid landing, (d) blows the shit out of the froggy's head, (e) stands in the middle of a flaming rain of frog parts looking gorgeous, (f) doesn't even spare a look at John or Gilina as she (g) says with a huge, cocky grin, "Sorry about the mess," and then (h) slaps another chain out of her way and takes off with just a monumental amount of spring in her step, which kills John on several levels, firstly (i) because it was fucking awesome, and secondly (j) because like all boys of his generation, he secretly kinda wants to make out with Han Solo a little bit, which I personally never understood until just this second, but (k) now he can. And he will!
