Pippin somehow survived the explosion that was thought to have killed him in Episode 4.9, and Zeph finds him in one of the four cocoons on The Lady’s ship. (Actually, Lucy locates him when she scans The Lady’s ship, but doesn’t ID him specifically at the time.) When Zeph is understandably quite suspicious of his resurrection, Pip tells her: “You could just relax, chill with all the science stuff for one minute, and celebrate with me, ’cause, yay, I’m not dead.” He might at the same time be admonishing viewers to put away scientific quibbles and just enjoy the happy endings.

Kim Roberts as Ginny and Maria Nash as her daughter Luvaya. Those two folks on the left in the background look very familiar.
On Qresh, there are families who rule (nine of them) and there are families who serve. The Robbels are among the serving clans. but in exchange for arms to fight The Lady, Kendry promises them a seat at the Council of Nine, which should turn it into the Council of Ten (unless someone else gets bumped out). Aneela hasn’t revealed herself as the heir to the Kin Rit lands because the time isn’t right and “things might get stabby”, but when she does reveal herself, that will bring the total number of ruling families to eleven. (The Kin Rits, according to Aneela, were the original ruling family, and chose the other nine.)
Have the Kin Rit lands been abandoned since Khlyen’s departure? If not, who’s acting as caretaker there? Also, if Kendry and Aneela marry, does it unify the two families, and would that mean they have only one vote on the council? Continue reading →
Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) gets naked so Lucy won’t listen in on her conversation with D’Avin and John.
The Lady (Alanna Bale) is pursuing Jaq (Jaeden Noel) because her hatchlings (as she calls her offspring) can only live in specific environments, while Jaq’s body has Hullen genes and can survive in a much broader range of conditions. The term “hatchlings” suggests creatures born of an egg-laying species. According to Lucy’s DNA analysis, it is a 97% probability that the dead hatchling given to her for analysis is a clone. (Many Earth species have the ability to reproduce by parthenogenesis, and The Lady might also have this ability. Offspring produced by apomictic parthenogenesis are full clones of their mother.)
