WARNING: If you don't want to know what happens in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Four and Nyx totally do it. They try to make like it's not a big deal, but we all know it TOTALLY IS.
Also a big deal: Two's nanites are shutting down. In other words, Two's dying. Like, very, very quickly.
Time to pay a visit to Dwarf Star Technologies, the company run by Two's creator, Alexander Rook. Three and Nyx do a little recon in the lobby and find that access to the 'space elevator' that takes you to the off-planet station can only be accessed via retinal scan.
The gang tracks down Eric Waver, the only Dwarf Star scientist to show Two any compassion when she was Alexander Rook's number-one experiment.
Eric invites his two work colleagues over for what they think is going to be a boys' night of feasting on House of Frying Daggers (Fists of Curry was closed). Thanks to the Android's latest gadget, Three and Six can absorb their retinal configuration in order to pass the scan. Technology!
Eric, Three and Six pass the retinal scan and are space-elevated to the space station, where they track down the new and improved nanites for Two.
Unfortunately, they're captured by the ever-maniacal Alexander Rook, who locks up Three and Six and has Eric shot for his lack of loyalty. Villainy!
Later, Rook interrogates Three as to Two's whereabouts; when Three doesn't talk, Rook introduces him to … well, it's kind of hard to explain. It's kept in a box, and it sort of looks like this.
We're not quite sure what that thing does to Three, but when he's taken back to the cell, Six notices he's a little … out of it.
Meanwhile, Two is worried that she hasn't heard from Three and Six and gets The Android to cook her up a little something that will keep her from keeling over for a little while. Drugs!
The Android also discovers another way into the space station: a sealed-over hangar that's the perfect size for the Marauder. Hey, who needs a door when you've got a Blink Drive, right?
Four frees Three and Six with a little help from his mighty sword. (Nyx thinks it's pretty mighty, too, haaaaaa!!)
Two heads for the lab to snag the new nanites. She finds the boxes empty, much to the smug glee of Alexander Rook, who taunts the ailing 'Rebecca' (remember, that's what he calls her) for being his "professional failure."
Rook then introduces Two to his new and improved prototype, a hulking warrior chock full of the new nanites who proceeds to throw Two all over the room.
Rook flees the scene as Nyx shows up, followed by Four, who makes short work of the behemoth. A slash with his sword insures the nanites' work is cut out for them. (Cut out for them ... right?)
Two has since collapsed, though Six comes up with the idea to take a blood sample from the slain prototype and inject it — new nanites and all — into Two. It works, as Two soon regains consciousness and the Raza gang retreats, content to fight Alexander Rook another day.
Back on the Raza, Six tells Two about Three acting strangely. They knock him unconscious and put him in quarantine, where he comes to and pulls an Invasion of the Body Snatchers-style freakout, letting out a horrifying shriek.
The gang knocks out Three again and puts him in a stasis pod, though when the black liquid tentacle creature thing starts to exit Three's body through his eyes, nose and mouth (it's freaky), they pull Three from the pod and space the thing out the airlock.
"What the hell was on our ship?" asks a stunned Two. Hey, we're just glad it's gone!
The episode ends with Three seemingly back to normal, reluctantly acknowledging that Six has once again participated in saving his life.
Oh, and with The Android waking up in this bedroom. What the heck?
