Anyway, Washington's feeling sorry for herself by sitting in Boylan's bar with her hair down, while Boylan unsuccessfully attempts to get a table of mercenaries to pay for their drinks. Not even the fact that Jim's awake is enough to get Washington excited (which I guess seems about right) since she's still beating herself up over the innocent people that got killed when the army -- a military-for-hire known as the Phoenix Group -- started shelling the colony. She tells Jim that the army brought back another terminus to replace the one they blew up, one that goes both ways, so they can ship back the unobtanium or whatever. But some dinosaurs tried to eat it so it's broken, and Malcolm is helping them fix it. Anyway, she's got no way to contact Taylor. Jim wants to know what the plan is, and Washington doesn't have one, so his plan is to hurt them and keep hurting them until they're gone. That's fuckin' ingenious, if I understand it correctly. It's a Swiss fuckin' watch, as someone once said.
Meanwhile, Mira goes over to the infirmary with a couple of soldiers and is surprised to find that Jim's not there. It's almost like he wasn't under guard and was able to just leave when he woke up!
Jim's gone over to see Malcolm and demand to know why he's working for them. Malcolm angrily points out the window the soldiers put his assistant's head through when Malcolm refused to help, because it didn't occur to Jim that an army that has already killed 26 people might use force -- and the threat of harm to others -- to coerce their prisoners into working for them. Malcolm says he's working as slowly as he can, because while Lucas is brilliant, he's no engineer, and so he hasn't caught on. Jim tells Malcolm to keep dragging it out, and I'm sure Malcolm appreciates Jim busting in and making accusations and then telling him to do EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS ALREADY DOING.
And then Malcolm hears people outside -- it's Mira, along with the employer guy from 2149, and she's telling him that Jim is smart (ha ha ha!), capable and dangerous, and might know where Taylor is. "By all means, we should talk to him," says Shadowy 2149 Boss, and doesn't mention that it might have been prudent to keep a guard on him.
