WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Thale is on the run inside the Nightflyer. He surprises Lommie in her quarters and blackmails her for info on how he can get around unseen by cameras.
Murphy was badly burned in what was either a ship malfunction or due to his encounter with Thale. But he survived.
Matheson and D'Branin search for Thale in the garden dome. They want to help him.
But the thuggish guards on ship do not. They hold Thale responsible for all of the problems on board and want to stop him -- by any means. Including knocking out D'Branin.
Thale finds a gun and heads to a greenhouse. Hiding out there, he is approached by a woman made of bees. Yes - bees.
D'Branin keeps seeing his dead daughter running around the ship's halls.
Rowan is in his quarters when D'Branin comes in and says he wants to send a probe to the Volcryn ship. Just in case Eris doesn't let the mission go ahead as planned.
Murphy -- still sedated and very injured -- is strapped into the memory pod by D'Branin. He is hoping to work with the others to access Murphy's memories and prove that Thale did not set him on fire.
But oh dang, the memory shows Thale intentionally setting Murphy on fire. This is not great for the team.
D'Branin tells Captain Hologram what the memory revealed. They both agree that in order to not scare the crew, they should say it was a ship malfunction. And that way, Thale can go back to his isolation space.
In a plan to subdue (aka kill) Thale, a spider bot is activated with lethal lasers. This looks like a bad idea.
Pretty soon it is scurrying around and, yes, killing people with lasers.
Eris soon feels compelled to tell D'Branin that something more is going on. There's a force working against them and trying to interfere with the mission. But he's on it. (Really?!)
