Later on, Rygel's Jazzin' around the Zelbinion when he suddenly and violently goes crazy with a horrible effect not seen since like MÃ©liÃ¨s invented space: some effed-up PK dude staring at him across the entire screen and going "BOO!" Not really, he just welcomes him "home," but the horrible apparition might as well have a flashlight to its chin. Rygel wigs.
Commercial. D'Argo confirms Gilina's story -- "gutted to worthlessness" is what he calls it -- and Gilina is very sad to see a dead dude from her unit deadin' it up on the floor. D'Argo nods: "Sheyang victim. Burned to death." Gilina says the guy's name, horrified, and Aeryn snaps to: "Officer Karanda? What was he doing guiding the likes of you? This is grot's work." Gilina drops the brand new bomb that Aeryn's entire unit was demoted when Aeryn left the PKs and will only be reinstated when she's dead. I forget: does that mean Crais is an asshole, or that the PKs are categorically assholes? Hmm.
Pilot asks Zhaan to confirm for him -- on "Scan Vector Gamma" -- if there's a Sheyang ship hanging around just outside sensor range, and of course there is.
Upon hearing this, Aeryn sublimates her rage from before by slamming Gilina against a bulkhead really hard: "Why are the Sheyangs back? What didn't you tell us?" D'Argo thinks maybe they should kill Gilina if she doesn't help them out with a quickness. Aeryn wonders if cooperating with the Sheyangs is what saved Gilina's life, and Gilina -- bright girl -- decides this is the time for taunting: "I am not the traitor. You are." A simple "no" would probably be best here. Aeryn continues to growl and John comes into the room and pulls her off Gilina again. Somehow John got stronger than Aeryn, but just for this episode; he holds her off even as she's charging Gilina again. "She knew they were coming back!" Aeryn screams. "She knew!"
John completes the triangle and sides with Aeryn -- who's right now the attacking one, just like before when it was John attacking the PK way of life -- and tells Gilina evenly, "She's not a traitor, not by a long shot. Crais never gave her a chance. Not like the chance we're giving you." There's kind of a subtle "Acting like a jerk is going to get us both killed by crazy Aeryn" in there somewhere. Whatever, it chills Gilina out considerably, and she tells the obvious truth that she just hid while the Sheyangs were looting. "They said they were gonna come back for the DS." And John speaks Tech: "Defense Shield?" Gilina explains that it's not exactly operational, but it's less damaged than everything else. God forbid John have a conversation with a Tech, of course, so Aeryn grabs Gilina by like the face and shoves her down the corridor: "Move! Go!" She's probably just worried about the Sheyangs. I'm sure that's it.
