Aeryn lies on her bunk, unconscious, as Noranti enters the freighter's med bay telling Talnell to stop touching her: "You don't have to use force, I want to find a cure as much as you do." Talnell has reprocessed his areas of responsibility somewhat: "You will find a cure and we will have it first." Even worse than Nurse is he, all of a sudden. Jenek and his Charrid follow, and Jenek immediately starts ordering Nurse around, but guess what! She's got the plague! See you in the Peacekeeper Wars, bitch. At least with that character, you get to be pretty. Jenek confirms that she's dead and also that he does not care. He tells Noranti and Talnell to check Aeryn, and Noranti immediately runs over to her and grabs her by the throat, freaking her out but getting her attention. Noranti really has a particular way of doing things, doesn't she. "Save your strength. Don't try to speak." Talnell joins her and Aeryn's eyes roll around in their sockets. "She doesn't appear to be infected," says Noranti, and Jenek's like, yeah, Nursie was looking pretty great too until her face fell off. Noranti tells him she can probably fix Aeryn if she gets sick, and Jenek remembers the baby. "Her fetus must be saved. Is there a suitable recipient for a transplant?" Noranti jumps back, horrified, but quickly recovers: "What? No! ...Anyway, it wouldn't do any good: all the females here are equally at risk from this disease." Dammit, Noranti! You just handed it to him. Talnell brings up Chiana, of course, which means things are going to get really horrible, really quickly. I don't want to watch this part at all. The deal at the beginning where Aeryn tried to talk and couldn't was pretty bad. This is worse.
Chiana runs into some Charrid on Moya, calls him "feckface" and keeps walking, and then...it's interesting, because she's kind of psychic, I think. Back on that Leviathan husk where they got the fake Aeryn, both Aeryn and Sikozu acted like Charrids were kind of hardcore, but now here, not only does Chiana basically wipe the floor with them, she also sees them coming from strange angles. I don't know how this works out, but she's never been the ninja of the group, and it would seem, wouldn't it, that her abilities would put her at an advantage here. Maybe it's just when we try to consciously use intuition that we blind ourselves to it. Eventually it doesn't really matter; eventually they catch her, and tie her up, and take her off Moya.
Bit later, and Sikozu's showing her cards again w/r/t how she actually adores Chiana: "They took Chiana by force and you just let them?" Pilot's like, "I had no idea." Scorpius calms Sikozu: "Recriminations can wait. We must act. Are you ready?" I really like that little scene.
