Aeryn pulls herself up: "John. Winona." And that's how you know they're going to be okay. He runs upstairs for his gun as the Skreeth rushes Aeryn, who shatters the glass coffee table and lies still. The Skreeth grabs John by the foot by punching through the wall beside the stairs; he tries to pull away and the Skreeth pulls the rest of the wall out. The Skreeth is kind of awesome. John pulls the Skreeth up the stairs by his ankle, one step at a time, because John is also awesome. "I've got Crichton," Braca hisses, spiked, Grayza watching eagerly. The Skreeth howls, and John kicks her in the face; she goes flying back down the stairs long enough for him to duck into a bedroom.
The lights flicker, more electrical danger happening, and Aeryn still on the floor surrounded by glass. John comes out with Winona in both hands, looking around for the Skreeth. All the lightbulbs are flashing and popping. It's very creepy. John cases the scene and the Skreeth suddenly appears behind him. Winona discharges, hitting the ceiling, and they fall off the balcony back to the first floor, under a giant chandelier. Winona goes skidding across the foyer. John tries to get his breath back; Aeryn opens her eyes to see the Skreeth looming over him, hand on his throat. Aeryn grabs Winona (whoa) and shouts a warning to John -- "Clear!" -- before shooting the chandelier down. John rolls away, and it gets the creature but good.
Braca screams, staggering; Grayza grabs his hands and watches him scream and sink to the floor.
John gets to his knees, watching the Skreeth gasp and spaz out. Aeryn helps him up, and they take deep breaths, looking at each other. They turn to the innocents: John to Jack and Aeryn to Olivia. They're battered but okay. As they all agree that they have no idea what just happened, the loud roar of Lo'La approaches outside. Everybody gasps and Aeryn spots her outside the French doors, palm trees all tattered and everything rushing back and forth like a storm. Olivia screams again: the Skreeth is back up. D'Argo targets her and takes her out with an enormous shot of blue science. The glass shatters and then the Skreeth shatters. After all the questions and yearning, this is what happens when John comes home. It's not his home anymore. This house is his old life. The Skreeth's death blows out the front door, scattering debris all over everybody.
