WARNING: If you don't want to know what happens in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
The Android lets her hair down (literally) as she enters some dive bar, orders a whiskey, flirts with some bro and beats the holy hell of a scumbag named Danny Bones. If this is a dream, we don't want to wake up!
Flash back to 24 hours earlier on board the Raza and Two gives Six the good news: We Voted Not to Space You (hooray!). Two says he could continue on his road to redemption by providing some Galactic Authority intel: mainly, who is this 'person of interest' the GA is pursuing whilst investigating the murder of Derrick Moss, aka One? As not even Five could access GA files remotely, Six suggests they find some understaffed outpost and tap into their system directly. Let's go!
Actually, hold on a second ... as everyone and their mother is after the Raza crew at this point, it wouldn't be wise for any of them to show their faces, like, anywhere, no matter how 'understaffed' it may be. This sounds like a job for The Android! And with her emotional upgrade, she can easily pass for a human … so much that she gives Three a playful whack on the butt before entering the space station. Hot!
On the space station, The Android is adorable and sexy as she gets herself into trouble, first opening the door to a restricted area and then ripping the shirt of the security guard who refuses to arrest her for such a minor infraction. Someone book this crazy woman!
Devon's got some smuggler pals who might know where Corso has been hiding out, so The Android is sent to bring in Danny Bones (which takes us back to the opening scene). Under pressure from Two, Nyx and Five, Bones reveals that Corso's been holed up at an isolated fusion reactor on a nearby planet.
Sure enough, a Galactic Authority Cruiser drops out of FTL, forcing The Android to land the Raza on the planet's surface and shut down everything but emergency power in an attempt to remain undetected. Six prepares to walk the 2.2 miles to the facility to warn his shipmates about the GA's presence; Five and Devon, concerned about his wounds, accompany him. Friends!
Meanwhile, Two, Three, Four and Nyx explore the abandoned fusion reactor and get into a gunfight with Jace Corso. Corso is wounded, forcing him to retreat into a panic room and crudely tend to his wounds. We hope it hurts a lot, bucko!
Two, Three, Four and Nyx break into the panic room but find Corso has escaped into the basement. They descend into the labyrinthian catacombs, where Two catches up to him and beats him to the floor … and sees that the Emergency Protocol countdown has only a few seconds left …
Yeah, you guessed it. The whole place goes ka-boom, sending tons of rubble into the underground level. Two and Corso are separated from Three and Nyx, whilst Four is trapped under a piece of concrete … and is now the prisoner of Chief Inspector Kierken, who assures him that his top-of-the-line emergency beacon guarantees that more GA troops are on their way. Terrific.
Two is unable to reach any of her comrades on her communicator, so she tells Corso to start digging through the rubble. Corso is perplexed by the fact that she's avenging the death of someone as "weak and vulnerable" as Derrick Moss … until he realizes that she actually, you know, cares. How long before the rest of the world knows that Portia Lin has lost her edge?
It would seem she hasn't lost all of it, though, as she shoots Corso in the head after he breaks through the rubble. However, before his execution, Corso revealed that it wasn't the Traugott Corporation who hired him to whack One, as Two originally thought. Who did, then?
Meanwhile, the Galactic Authority calvary arrives and gets Kierken and Four topside. Luckily, Three and Nyx have also managed to escape from the rubble and, along with Two, engage in a good old-fashioned Mexican standoff with the GA squad.
Six, who was never comfortable with this mission of revenge, asks Two if it was worth it. Two has no regrets about shooting Corso in the head, but she's disturbed by his revelation that it wasn't the Traugott Corporation who hired him to kill One. Again, who did?
The episode ends with The Android, perhaps enjoying her emotional upgrade even more than we are, being confronted by the Android Projection, who claims The Android's been a bit careless lately, making little mistakes here and there that will probably only escalate. "You're a danger to this ship and everyone on it … and you know it," she says. But ... she's so cute!
