With that taken care of, it's time to address the elephant in the room: Dav's basically loitering on Lucy, with no job (he doesn't want to go work in the mines) and no papers (so he can't just leave). Dutch wants him gone, though.
In the meantime... new warrant! Seems the mayor's daughter Veena has been taken hostage by the warlord Ryo, who wants her prisoner brother (Simon) returned to her. The Company can't get their hands dirty intervening, so it's up to the Killjoys to make the exchange.
So it's off to Sugar Point, which nobody seems happy about. Simon pipes up to say that it's his home, but even he's in a bad way since he's got a weak stomach and the restraints make it worse. Dutch is like "tough ta-tas," but Johnny's the one who has to clean up when Simon ralphs. They puke blue in the Quad System!
Dutch, meanwhile, has another flashback to her days as a child assassin, training with Khlyen. He told her the red boxes contain "one name, one weapon." The rules were that you had a week to "take care" of the task at hand. So, like, kill a guy.
Welcome to Sugar Point! Lucy gets shot down by scavengers on the ground, and now they're stuck in the wrong part of town. The part of town where they use impaled skulls as decoration. Oh, and Simon just escaped.
Flashback to more of Dutch's training with Khlyen. Seems what happens when you don't kill the guy you're supposed to is you get tied to a chair and forced to fight to the death. You can't refuse the order. So young Dutch POPS her SHOULDER OUT to escape the restraints.
Turns out Simon was hiding something inside his body, and the Scavengers were trying to cut it out of him. It's too late for Simon, but Dutch retrieves the orb he was smuggling inside him - also called a Smuggler's Nut. This is what Ryo wants.
Dutch gets Dav to open up about what he's looking for that he won't tell them. All he'll say is he's looking for a doctor. More importantly do Dutch and Dav have a plan to rescue the mayor's daughter? Dav: "I'm a soldier, so use me. Do you trust me?"
Dutch and Dav have a stand-off with Ryo's people. But they have backup in terms of the Scavengers, who aren't really helping them so much as they are attacking Ryo's people for their own reasons. It's a shoot-out!
Dutch and Dav make it to the roof with the mayor's daughter, where Dav is able to disable the missile that Ryo wants to launch into Old Town. And then it's Johnny to the rescue with a freshly-repaired Lucy!
