D'Argo and Zhaan are not feeling John on the plan to leave Gilina at the Zelbinion and call Crais to return for her. John points out that they have to leave anyway, the Sheyangs are still around, and Crais is bound to show up at some point. I would also point out that, from what we've seen, Crais is crap at finding Moya. D'Argo says that they've been lucky, but this is handing Crais all the cards. "If she doesn't tell him we were here..." Zhaan interrupts John: "I'm a trusting soul at best, but not to a fault." Because God knows she's completely lacking any of those. Aeryn speaks up. "The tech will not reveal our presence." D'Argo asks why she thinks that, and instead of going off on some kind of soldiery thing about foxholes and the debt of life and whatever, she cuts the BS: "You know what happened to me, being deemed irreversibly contaminated by Crais. Contamination by enemy life forms. That could happen to you. The punishment is death. Or worse, banishment. I hope you can only ever imagine how horrible it is, to never return to the life that you love. You are smarter than that, Gilina." Fucking ouch already. Gilina nods: "Yes, I'm smarter than you. And I kissed your boyfriend. But I really like you and I want to be friends, especially now that you're Han Solo. Please don't hit me anymore."
The Sheyangs talk about how they've called for Crais's Command Carrier and it's coming back, and how the honorable one blew up like a pumpkin, and then they have a talk with D'Argo about how he was totally lying the whole time, and they thought that was awesome, because "there is no shame in losing to a clever opponent," but also, they are going to kill D'Argo one day with all the hate a frog footman with a dog's-anus face can muster. He's like, "Later!" Zhaan tells him again how magnificent he was, and D'Argo gets a little shirty: "With or without your assistance." She grins at him. "Or in spite of it."
Aeryn and Gilina are standing at the entrance to the Zelbinion, and Gilina's telling Aeryn she's totally going to lie right to Crais's face and it's going to be awesome. "I wish I had been so smart," says Aeryn. The word is innocence, and it's sad when you lose it, little by little. You get more beautiful and more sad. Gilina grabs Aeryn, who's busy trying to get the hell away from her before hugs break out, and they clasp hands. Aeryn graciously leaves John with Gilina.
