The station PA broadcasts something and the Charrid says something, and Jenek agrees with his assessment: "Many weaknesses." Jenek greets the approaching Scorpius and tells the Charrid to get lost. He does, snarling, and Jenek and the two baddies sit down for a chat. "Now listen carefully: my name is Captain Wentrask. My mission demands absolute secrecy. My proof code is zenark devra zenark prida." Jenek growls, recognizing a passcode for Intelligence (Ministry of Dissimilation), but laughs and says he's not interested in "spies and their intricate games." He introduces himself and says they should just stay out of each other's way; Scorpius agrees and leaves. Still, that was moderately bad-ass. Rygel, watching them, belches; Jenek's Charrid bitches about how Wentrask is a half-breed, and Jenek says to forget it and bounce.
Aeryn lies on a red pillow, slowly opens her eyes, frowning at a shadow person above her. It becomes John, who tells her "it's time" and that she's "doing good." She smiles and puts her hand over his, where he lovingly caresses her body. She reaches for his face and touches her chin; he reiterates that she's "doing great." He disappears and she begins to weep. She can't speak; her mouth isn't working. It's a nightmare, the kind where you can't talk. It's horrible to watch. She cries out wordlessly, reaching for the place where John was, as the Nurse again tells her to stop struggling. She slaps her stomach and continues to speak nothing. The things she would say if she could speak. The things she would do if she weren't tied down. "Must I keep sedating you? Must you keep making things difficult for yourself?" Tears stream from Aeryn's eyes as she stares into the empty space where John was. "There's no point in fighting. You know that." She loses herself in sobs, shaking.
Rygel continues to stuff food in his mouth; John finally tells him to stop already. "That's enough, all right," Rygel says, and asks for one more second. He belches. Oh man this is going to be bad. Chiana notices Nurse entering the commons -- Rygel continues to belch -- and John cowboys up to talk to her, Sebacean to fake-Sebacean. Chiana's not feeling it: "It's another person you're got to fool." Rygel says the scariest words the Dominar has ever uttered: "This will be convincing. Stand back." John and Chiana back the hell up off him, and John asks him loudly if he's okay; Nurse turns to look. Rygel groans and complains and Dr. Talnell joins the Nurse in staring. Soon enough, he barfs massively in radioactive green, in an impressive stream that almost nails Nurse. Talnell asks if he's okay and John says probably it's their "lousy food" doing it. Chiana walks over and puts her hands on the Muppet comfortingly. "Yes, I'm sure of it," Rygel mumbles, but Talnell's not so sure. "Have you ever had an emesis of this severity before?" Just once, he says, but it was cured: he once caught "a touch of Dermafollica." Talnell jumps and says it's a highly contagious disease, but Rygel tells him to chill: "They said it was dormant." Good old Rygel. Using his best skills, like barfing and pissing, for reasons of his own, without telling anybody what he's doing. Talnell puts the station on lockdown: "Anchor all vessels to their docking ports." Mission accomplished. Nurse runs off because she hates dying of the plague, and also because Jenek is going to bust a gut when he finds out they're still being detained.
