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.)

Pree (Thom Alison), the only character whose appearance has changed drastically, is now head Killjoy in Old Town
Westerly has succumbed to a complex, shared delusion, designed to turn its population into a workforce to terraform the moon. An alien program has hijacked people’s brains, but only the cerebral cortex seems to be affected by it. The limbic system is still functioning normally. (Proof of this is that Gared and Pree are still in love, and Zeph still has a crush on Dutch.) This has been happening for forty-three days, according to Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) who is holed up on Arkyn with her son Jaq (Jaeden Noel). Kendry has retained her fighting skills, and uses them effectively against The Lady’s minions. (Johnny has lost such skills because his new personna has no need for them. He can’t even figure out how to fire the type of gun he once carried as a Killjoy.) Continue reading →
Dutch consults Zeph (Kelly McCormack) about the stuff that her mother told her would destroy the green and anything connected to it. Dutch is orbiting Telen, a long way from Zeph’s lab in The Quad, so Zeph appears on Lucy as a fairly sophisticated hologram. She can see what’s around her on Lucy (she points out a centrifuge to Dutch), and can also physically interact (in a limited way) with her remote surroundings. Unlike STAR TREK: VOYAGER’s Emergency Medical Hologram, she has no solidity, but the EMH had a limited range. Zeph is being transmitted across quite a lot of space, and the conversation between her and Dutch is not encumbered by any noticeable time delay, so transmission must be happening at faster than light speeds. Zeph must be using Hullen tech to accomplish this. In Episode 2.5, Dutch told Khlyen that faster-than-light transmissions are impossible, and Khlyen responded “only with your technology”.
