I've been majorly distracted these last two weeks, so I didn't even finish until last night. The tardiness is working to my advantage!

This episode was really about the two Crichtons, Crais, and Aeryn, with almost everything else kind of serving as a garnish. The planet stuff? Eh. I liked how they made sure to get a few more characters over from Moya to help establish a sense of the same show on two different ships.

At this point, is it safe to say Crais has a thing for Aeryn? Obviously, John has a degree of jealously going on that's kept warm by a nice healthy dose of distrust, but Crais hasn't quite made an in your face overture to Aeryn.

This episode has some of my favorite lines--

John: Who's your Daddy? Come on! You know who your Daddy is - who's your Daddy? D'Argo tell him who his Daddy is!
D'Argo: I'm your Daddy.

John: Cross my heart, smack me dead, stick a lobster on my head.

D'Argo: Oh come on - crack a smile will you? At least he's out of your nose.
John: Hair.
D'Argo: That's what I meant. At least he's out of your nose hair.

The first (and maybe second) time I saw this episode, I was confused about the Colarta killing the sister (Sarova) and taking her place--it's such a quick scene, I wasn't sure what I was watching. This thread is picked up again a few episodes later in "Relativity," and then it makes more sense.

And, yes, Crais wants Aeryn and John knows it. We will explore more of that dynamic in the next episode, one of my favorites from Season 3, appropriately titled "Green Eyed Monster."
