WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
In the bay, Dutch is having some nightmares — memories of her past, and D'av is right by her side when she wakes up. Then... this happens.
Everyone on board the ship is put on high alert when D'avin and Delle Seyah's child goes missing. Turns out, he walked before he crawled, and grew up way too fast way too soon.
Zeph runs some tests and discovers that the Hullen cells in the young boy's body identify human cells as inferior, and requiring updating, thus causing him to grow up at such an extreme speed. Zeph needs to get him back to her lab on the armada if there's any hope of slowing down his aging.
And something weird is happening on Westerly: children are going missing. They're looking for the first natural born Hullen — getting straight to the source. The armada has lost all power, so Turin sends Fancy Lee to go investigate. He doesn't get anywhere with this poor slob.
Dutch refuses to allow them to return to the Quad — that's exactly where the Lady will be waiting for them. But to save the child, they're going to need a bioweapons expert. Pip knows a guy named... Kravn. On a planet called... Utopia.
But despite a handsome bribe, Kravn won't see Pippin or his Killjoy friends for any reason whatsoever.
Fancy Lee and Gared interview the mother of one of the abducted children, and find that whoever is doing the deed has been leaving some inhuman fingerprints and strange energy traces behind.
And since this Kravn fellow won't give up the goods easily, D'avin and the team plan a heist/kidnapping. First phase: D'avin provides the distraction of a robbery.
Meanwhile, Johnny and Dutch wiggle through the ductwork and land right outside Kraven's office, waiting for the man himself to arrive.
Time is ticking. The kid is in duress.
But Dutch and Johnny get a surprise while waiting for Kravn: he's already there. No, he's not in the room. He is the room. Kraven uploaded his consciousness to the computer.
When Kravn emits nerve gas into the room, Dutch and Johnny must act quickly to improvise some gas masks. They only have a few minutes to deactivate the trap — but it's all they need.
The Hullen on board the armada have woken up, and march in formation. Before Turin can fire a few rounds that trigger their counterattack, his own former Hullen prisoner stops him, and saves his life.
But they're too late: the Hullen have hijacked the ships, and are flying them to who knows where.
Johnny managed to download Kravn from his smart room, and then re-uploaded him to his OS on Lucy. Upgrade!
Just as Lucy and Kravn tag-team a solution to the boy's genetics problem, they find out: Pip has kidnapped him and brought him to Utopia. Why? That parasite in Pip has taken over his mind.
Fancy Lee and Gared are sneaking around the Quad when they spot a group of hooded thugs breaking into hovels and stealing kids. When they attempt to intervene, Fancy Lee is knocked out and Gared is taken in.
The Killjoys manage to intercept Pippin before he can do anything rash to the kid, and bring them both back to the ship.
The Killjoys get the kid inside a chamber and wash him down with a vapor meant to stabilize his genes. It works, and D'av the dad couldn't be happier.
When Gared wakes up, he finds himself in a cell with all the abducted children. Is he the entertainment for this somber party?
