WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Three is having quite the morning. Or...mornings? He's acting oddly, seems to know what people will say before they say it and doesn't have any qualms about sticking his fingers in Solara's food (ew!). That's because he is - you guessed it! - stuck in a TIME LOOP.
How did he get stuck in the time loop? Well, he has no idea and neither do we, but that's not even the worst of his problems. His crewmates do not believe him. Ever. They don't even believe that they don't believe him because why would they? This is insane.
The second time around we get a little further into the events of the day. Five is moping in the mess, Solara and Adrian are sparring, Adrian is getting his ass kicked. They also do not believe that Three is in a loop and, strangely, won't tell him their secrets.
Three comes up with a brilliant plan! Android just needs to teach him something he couldn't possibly know so that the next time around he can prove he's in a time loop. If she tells him what's wrong with the ship then he can tell her and poof!
Okay, Plan C! Plan C is French. As in Android is going to teach him French. It takes about four million years, but luckily they all happen in the same day. Also, this is the most hilarious sequence ever.
And he runs right into the waiting pistol of one of Ryo's many bounty hunters. You remember them? He sicked them on the crew in the last episode. His name is Ash and he likes to shoot people in the face.
Good thing Three is stuck in a time loop cause he just wakes up in bed all over again, makes quick work of convincing his friends, and they decide to capture the bounty hunter and figure out how Ryo knows where they are.
Turns out that in addition to being deadly, Ash is also able to walk through walls. Adrian grabs a big glowy clock thing and the day restarts again, only this time, Adrian is looping too. WE HAVE FOUND THE SOURCE OF THE TIME LOOP!
Finally, she ends up "at the end of time" speaking to a very, very old Five who has been waiting for her to arrive. Old Five tells her that when she goes back to her own time she has to destroy the device to fix things.
Before Android leaves, though, Five lists off a bunch of big events to come, including the "Dwarf Star Conspiracy" and the "fall of the house of Ishida." It's all very cryptic and heavy, but Android can't stick around.
We end on Zairon where Ishida has even more insanity up his sleeves. Insanity in the form of someone trapped in a terrifying chair with a headset and big glowy tubes everywhere. This does not seem like good news for the Raza.
