WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
We left last week on a bit of a cliffhanger: Dutch had transported back into the green, and Aneela... out of it. Johnny and D'av aren't exactly elated over this turn of events, considering how Aneela's tried to kill them oh so many times in the past. She's here to help bring D'avin (and just D'avin) back into the green to save Dutch.
Aneela needs a ship to get back into the green, which really is just a repository for all the combined memories of everyone who ever was greened, like an Island of Lost Toys. Turin has a hard time saying no to the sweet-talking, knife-wielding Aneela.
D'avin gets Turin to stand down. He gives him the spore weapon, and tells him that if Aneela breaks ranks inside the green, he's to detonate the bomb, and kill them all. Sounds like the kind of Killjoy insurance policy he's used to hearing about.
So, as Aneela and D'av are prepping for their incursion into the green, Aneela voices her reasoning behind taking just the one Jaqobis: he's got that repulsion power, remember? For some reason, when the green was in his system, it changed his brain composition for ever. And now he's like, super green resistant. Of course, that resistance needs some coaxing, so Aneela sticks a serum in D'av's brainstem.
And so, they're in the green. Of course, Johnny forced himself into the plasma pool — he won't sit this one out! Aneela rendezvouses with Dutch, who shows her a red box she found. Inside? An apple. That's probably symbolic of something.
And back in Westerly, some kind of weird virus is spreading across the city's destitute. It's also affecting Pree, who's been experiencing symptoms ever since returning from the Hullen-occupied RAC. Strange.
Back in the green, the Lady, in the guise of Delle Seyah, makes Aneela an offer: everyone can get what they want, so long as they don't destroy the green. The Lady is just a memory, she can't make it on the outside... yet. The cost for this deal? The Lady doesn't destroy everything and everyone.
D'avin finds Dutch, and together they team up to retrieve Johnny. The Lady's been trying to inveigle her way into Johnny's heart by wearing Pawter's dead skin. It's a low blow. The other Killjoys get him out of this heartrending moment.
Back on the armada, the Qreshi snob tells Turin his real intentions regarding Westerly: blow that sh*t up. It's the perfect plan: they can justify the destruction of that poor, destitute community with the alibi that they're doing it to preserve the universe. Brilliant! Ugh, rich people. Turin's not about it, but his other idea is not much better: use the spore to kill the green.
After trading gun fire for a good ten or so minutes with some unfriendlies in the forest, D'av finally has enough. And he summons his awesome green-repulsion power to make them disappear. This gives the Lady the spooks.
Johnny and D'av come upon the Lady's inner lair, and find her, in Yardeen form, choking D'avin. Looks like Aneela took the bait, and gave up D'av to the Lady in exchange for Delle Seyah and Jaq — now they can be one happy, backstabbing family together! Or is it just part of Aneela's plan to defeat the Lady once and for all?
