The echoes across are loud: the laka is intimately tied to John's violation by Grayza -- lay down Chiana's blindness beside John's emotional blurring, see the way they draw a quartered square: Chiana can't make the jump from the body to the mind without the body going wacky, John can't cross from thought to emotion without hitting "Fractures" and his own violation. Chiana's steps toward freedom last week with Johnny, in terms of clearing the dark spot on the line, are mirrored here in Aeryn's discovery of the laka (and D'Argo bears witness to this, of course, because like John he's not present for his own drama, because he can't, because boys are pussies). The first two stories show Aeryn crossing that bridge to John's home and history. Next week, Chiana takes the step toward saving that hurt part of herself (with both sexy and horrible results); and John is able to reclaim the territory of his heart. It's crystalline and magnificent, but also I should disclose that I have the mother of all summer colds and earlier today I broke into doped-up tears watching Chiana's screen tests. Minute 11 of the makeup tests is just a killer! I am so high right now! Gigi Edgley is awesome when she's just looking at you!
