But everything's fine now. Elizabeth is back at Terra Nova to greet Taylor, waking up and fully aware of where he is again. So did Jim French-kiss him or did Elizabeth? Apparently Elizabeth has made a vaccine. Taylor sits up and addresses Washington: "You shot me," he says. She says yes. "Good job," he says. Heh.
Nearby in the infirmary, Malcolm also looks better, except for the headache he has. Then he and Elizabeth share a smile, almost like he KNOWS it wasn't a headache but the Neanderthal his old girlfriend married.
Over at the Shannon household, Jim is being crabby about his kids having friends over. "Don't mind me," he says to Josh and Skye, for some reason, as they chat in the kitchen, after finding Mark and Maddy talking elsewhere. So he goes to see Zoe, who's feeling better. She's got some homemade stuffed dinosaurs. "I'm teaching them how to walk," she says after Elizabeth comes in, and the three of them do some family bonding.
Elsewhere, Tom the shifty bartender skulks through the jungle to meet the Sixers. He hands over his pack, which contains medicine, a power cell. "No ammo?" says Mira. He says Taylor would lock him up if he knew he was doing business with the Sixers, and if Taylor knew Tom was bringing them ammo, he'd be shot. Anyway she trades him for the wild sorghum that he says makes "the finest hooch." But there's one other thing: the next time they make contact with 2149, there's a kid who wants to get a message through. He wants to buy his girlfriend's way through the portal. "The kid? He's our new sheriff's son," says Tom. Mira takes notice. "It's an opportunity. One I plan to take advantage of," she says. I guess it's supposed to sound ominous, but since it still seems like they're setting the Sixers up to be the real good guys, it's not going to make me start biting my fingernails.
