Daring Aeryn To Love You

Prayer - John willingly destroys everything he has in order to get Aeryn back. And vice versa. And Scorpius watches, and occasionally shoots people in the head, which is weirdly hilarious every time.

A Constellation Of Doubt - John, to the accompaniment of the Moyans' failure on Earth, resolves to find Katratzi and Aeryn, at any cost. Which, it turns out, is unbelievably high.

A Message From the Ministry Of Awesome

Bringing Home The Beacon - Sikozu and Aeryn duff the perfect opportunity to assassinate Grayza when they come upon her offering the Scarran War Minister Ahkna the Luxan planets. In exchange for support in her coup on High Command. Never let it be said the lady didn't think big.

Trout

Terra Firma - The entire population of the universe conspires like Much Ado About Nothing to get John and Aeryn back together, but it probably still won't work. In other news, Scorpius is willing to die to protect John, Sikozu thinks that sounds fun, and the Earth adventure doesn't go as badly as you might have worried.

It's What Comes Before "Terra Firma"

Kansas - John finally finds a way home. Only it's not his home: it's in the wrong timeline, Rygel's gone Kill Crazy, his younger self is a beast, Karen Shaw is a pedo, and Dot the Annoying Nosy Neighbor will be the death of us all.

Virtual Insanity

Won't Get Fooled Again - Crichton's always questioning his sanity and now he seems to be grounded at Canaveral. Things get twisted though applied psychology, or is it less profound, and he's just trapped underground?

The Runaway Groom

Look At The Princess (3): The Maltese Crichton - If someone thinks that Aeryn's numb, if someone thinks the story's dumb? After Crichton spends the night with another girl who fights, it's hard to blame them. But just as things are looking bleak -- Aeryn's hurt and Rygel's meek -- Crichton saves the day again, so they all survive and then...there's some more kissing.

The Princess Bride

Look At The Princess (2): I Do, I Think - There's no need to threaten Crichton more. He's given up on fighting, so Aeryn stomps out the door. They've bruised him and deceived him, but from Scorpius they'll keep him, so he's married and then frozen into stone.

Escape From Wedded Bliss

Look At The Princess (1): A Kiss Is But A Kiss - It was coronation week on the planet. A princess kissed Crichton, and then all hell broke loose. Would he propose to her and then an heir produce? Or would he decline and face Scorpy's abuse?

Pray For Osteoporosis

Bone To Be Wild - There's a creature on the loose that eats bones, and a botanist that looks like a large mound of something or other. One of those is an enemy. Also enemies: Crais and Scorpius, who try to put their dislike of each other on hold long enough to find Moya. They fail, particularly at the first part.

A Kiss Before Dying

The Hidden Memory - Gilina helps Crichton fool the Aurora Chair and escape, only to get shot by Scorpius for her efforts. She shares an uplifting vision with Stark and a deathbed kiss with Crichton. Crais ends up in the chair, and Aeryn gets a lot of satisfaction from that. And Moya now has a son that's covered with weapons. That'll end well.

Do Not Go Gentle

Nerve - In the first installment of a two-parter, Aeryn's dying, so Crichton and Chiana head to the Gammak base to find a cure. Major players include Crais, Gilina, newbies Stark and Scorpius, and a nasty torture chair in which Crichton spends quite a bit of the episode. Chiana returns to Moya in time to save Aeryn, but Crichton's fate is the cliffhanger.

A Human Reaction

A Human Reaction - John Crichton accidentally gets hold of the entire rest of the series in this first-season Farscape episode, but at least he earns it. Sex and vivisection and the tears of the truly beautiful inform yet another episode of this always-underestimated series.

Reality Bites

Rhapsody In Blue - Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but in the fantasy world, Crichton's shirtless a lot more often. If you care about what he's up to when he's got clothes on, though, he saves Zhaan from a horrible fate.

"You Fart Helium?"

Premiere - Farscape starts with this offering, and it's pretty darn hilarious in spots. John Crichton, a hot astronaut, gets caught in a wormhole and ends up across the galaxy. There, he learns that aliens exist, in a wide array of shapes, sizes, colors, and even farting ability. It doesn't really make much sense, but you probably weren't looking for that when you turned it on.
