Oh, this episode! It continues the angst for John and Aeryn, and it's a good "whodunit." I love the fake out in the beginning where we think it's Talyn, but it's a transport pod instead. And then the passengers are ESCAPED PRISONERS which happen to include a warrior-like alien (the Scarran), a Hynerian, a Nebari, and a Sebacean. I love the contrast of John now compared to what he was like in the first season: the John two cycles ago would've been much more trusting and open to the prisoners on Moya. Now, he is suspicious and does not trust any of them. This side of the wormhole has changed him.

Other things I love about this episode: John asking D'Argo which shirt to wear; this John also referencing Huey, Dewey, and Louie, just like the John on Talyn (well, they are the same guy...); John and Aeryn having the same idea at the same time for Rygel's rescue; and, of course the end where Aeryn is the first to stand with John.

When this episode first aired there was a 7-month-long gap between this episode and the next (in the US). Dang Sci-Fi channel!
