Which is pretty much what Caroline says: "...He doesn't even want that much." Aeryn stops: "But he's been spending time with you." Caroline hypothesizes, and this is where you either drop suspension of disbelief altogether or nominate her for sainthood: "I think he's been testing himself. Working out what he really wants. It's not me." Aeryn shrugs and says she's sorry, and Caroline laughs sweetly. "No you're not! You still want him, don't you?" She nods. So simple, a kid in strange territory. Just answering the question as it's stated, primitive, and not the thousands behind it. She'd pull a gun at a chess game. "Yes. But it doesn't matter. He doesn't want me either." Caroline disagrees. "When I asked him about you, he said...there was nothing going on. He said that several times." Aeryn's like, "See, that's bad." Caroline kindly writes this off as Aeryn's lack of understanding about humans, when we know it's actually due to her inability to understand people. "Sometimes when we repeat a lie, it means that we're trying to convince ourselves of the truth. And that is that he still loves you. Very much." Angels bearing trumpets and Godiva chocolates descend and carry Caroline bodily into Heaven. Aeryn watches her, determined not to cry.
Two transport pods hover nose-to-tail at the wormhole's other end. Scorpius asks Sikozu about her forehead bruise, which is now much worse, and they talk about her turbulent travel back to him from Earth. "What are you doing?" she asks. They do their usual creepy Sex Dance of Death where they wriggle and undulate and make bizarre noises all over the place, but that kinda goes without saying. "Cross-coupling the fuel cells." Which, Sikozu realizes, will "turn this pod into a bomb." Scorpius explains that the wormhole leads to John, which means that Grayza could find him, and Sikozu asks if that means he thinks the Command Carrier will return. Scorpius says his "spy" on the Carrier hasn't been able to figure out what exactly she's up to, "But should she return, as a last resort I will detonate this pod within the mouth of the wormhole. That should destabilize it." Which of course means that he'll die. They nuzzle creepily. "You would have a better chance of destabilization with two pods," she groans, and he puts his hand around her throat.
I have no idea what's going on with these bitches most of the time, I will tell you that right now. They make little to no sense to me, and on top of it I can't ever keep their cover stories and quintuple-agencies straight. But you've got John and Aeryn torturing each other at one end of the wormhole, and Scorpius and Sputnik at the other end doing their weird fetish shit, and Scorpius just admitted he's willing to die, again, to keep John safe, and she's in for the long haul, and I guess that's worth something. And Grayza's got the Braca/Skreeth at the other end of the wormhole, but Scorpius has Skreeth/Braca in place at her end, so there's a whole yin-yang of triple-agent going on at which Braca is the nexus, and that's kind of pretty. Scorpius invites her to watch the sequence and they gaze creepily into each others' eyes, agreeing to die to keep John out of the PKs hands, hoping they won't have to before Braca goes 66 on Grayza's ass I guess, so it's a waiting game.
