Nurse continues to circle, paraphrasing John from last week's tag: "Listen, I've heard all that dren before. Usually from people like you, chained in a cell. Look at me: I'm not. You know why? Because I figured out a long time ago: Peacekeepers, Scarrans...what difference does it matter who rules? It won't be me, all I'm going to do is survive. I suggest you should do the same."
Here's John's speech from last week: "You set me up, not that I care. I don't care 'bout much. War. Death. Wormholes: I don't care about the things you care about. Peacekeepers rule the Scarrans; Scarrans rule the Peacekeepers...let them rule together. Put your ass in a cage. I care about one thing. One. God have mercy on my soul." You tell me who the good guy is, here.
Aeryn looks at the Nurse. "I'll tell Captain Jenek you're ready for another interrogation." Ha, Jenek the fennik. Let's just laugh and have fun. The Nurse and John both know the truth: all that matters is survival. Specifically, in these two speeches, Aeryn's survival. Who's the good guy? Aeryn. She's the only one that wouldn't make that choice. Ironically enough. Which is not to say that she's not gonna get pretty hairy tonight either. Truth, justice, and the American way are getting a beating this week. Nurse leaves; Aeryn shudders and tries to get her breathing under control.
"Pilot, thank Moya for us and stay well clear. You guys have come far enough." Pilot comms that Moya's telling him the wormhole is destabilizing. John nods grimly: "Yeah, it's not too good. Grasshopper, you still up for this?" Scorpius sits behind John, in the Aeryn seat: "I was just musing: if you miss your intended target, we could change the future. Or the past. Create a world devoid of Peacekeepers...and Scarrans. Would you like that, John?" It's not a question so much as a dare: do you love me yet? John just closes his eyes, headachy, and says, "Clear the mechanism." He does. "Focus." He does. He says goodbye; Chiana comms him some luck, turns to stare at D'Argo, worried, crawling out of her skin.
"Left. Left again. No, damn. Right!" The module, and thus the camera, whirl wildly throughout the entire episode. Don't watch it if you get sick, it's worse than Blair Witch. Which I guess is the point. Scorpius snorts, "I thought you knew where you were going," but John tells him to shut up. "I'm trying to concentrate. Left. Up there. That should be it." They shoot out of the wormhole into normal space. "Where exactly is here?" The only Moya sadder (scarier) than the real one.
