Skye's over at the Sixers camp again, which she seems to get to pretty effortlessly. Like at this point, I think Terra Nova must have a halfway decent transit system. Where is the Sixer camp anyway, a half-mile from the colony? Starting to think Terra Nova's just not looking very hard. Anyway, Mira stops her to give her grief because she didn't give them any info on the supply convoy, but Skye protests that she doesn't know. "Your intel has been garbage lately," says Mira, who is threateningly pretending to let Skye's mother's medicine fall out of the trees if Skye doesn't shape up, which she promises to do.
Oh, sweet Jesus, the saga of Maddy's quest for the promethium core is interminable. She brings the wheel to Durwin, who already got one this morning, from Boylan. So Maddy goes to Boylan's bar to beg for it. He needs it to run his taps, but she offers her organizational skills in exchange for it. He's tempted, because the guy who's able to maintain two sets of books for legitimate and gambling purposes is suddenly a drowning-in-paperwork frazzled businessman. It almost works, until he finds out Maddy is Jim's daughter, at which point he just hands over the promethium core with a plea for Maddy to tell her dad how nice Boylan was.
Skye's back at Lucas's tent, where the closer he gets to figuring things out, the weirder he gets. In this case, he's pressing his forehead up against hers and telling her he's solved the formula or whatever. But he also wants to know why her nickname is "Bucket." She tells him she wanted to be a soldier like her dad, so she used to wear a bucket on her head. Bet he's sorry he asked. He warns her not to go back to Terra Nova, because it won't be safe once his employers arrive. "They're going to take control of Terra Nova, and if my father fights them, which he will, they'll burn it to the ground, with or without the people in it." Anyway, about ten more minutes of scene-chewing weirdness occurs, and then Lucas kisses her on the side of the head and leaves. So she's got to get THAT boiled clean now.
