This episode has my single favorite piece of dialog in the entire series:
D'Argo: Well, now I can only speak truth, and that comes as good and bad news.
John: All right, give me the bad news first.
D'Argo: The bad news is that you're married, and you must endure as a statue for eighty cycles in a strange world.
John: What's the good news?
D'Argo: Chiana and I are having fantastic sex.

And in this episode, Brandon Browder kills his wife. Okay, just the character played by her.

Jumping ahead, the stand out moment comes right after the quote above, when John tries to do a comical peace signs pose, but then ends up frozen in agony. Aeryn's own agonized face as she simply can't say what she wants to say or allow herself to commit to what John wants, painful.

I watched part of the final episode of the trilogy last night, so it's definitely clouding my memories. This and the last episode, continue to show how close John and D'argo have become which is incredible given how their friendship originally began episodes ago. Perhaps also, given the quote above, we have this nice frankness about sex which up until this point in most Sci-Fi shows simply has always been implied or teased.

PK Special Services....whee! The Scarrans are at a distinct disadvantage when dealing with the PKs when it comes to infiltration of this world and its people.
