Dutch finds one of Khlyen’s red boxes in the green. Initially it is empty, but later it contains what appears to be an apple
Aneela, John, and D’Avin re-enter the green to free Dutch. It is understandable why Aneela needs D’Avin on the mission, because he has a unique ability to repel the green goo. And she does try (unsuccessfully) to persuade John to stay behind. (John is quite vulnerable to manipulation from The Lady and therefore completely useless in greenspace.) Remember back in Episode 3.2 when Zeph was the only one to figure out that “fake fire doesn’t burn”? One can’t help thinking that Zeph is the only one who could entirely refuse to accept The Lady’s artificial reality. John almost succumbed to a facsimile of Pawter. Zeph would never believe an artificial-Pip. Continue reading →
John and D’Avin leave young Jaq (aka Ozzie) in the care of his mother, who is hiding out on Arkyn in Red 9 (presumably down the block from Red 17), drinking a purple bottle of hokk, and reviewing Khlyen’s research into the nature of The Green. (She knew about the weapon that Khlyen devised to destroy The Lady before D’Avin mentioned it.) Khlyen must have told her how to access Red 9. Delle Seyah is also aware of the locations of Khlyen’s other safe houses in The Quad.
D’Avin, John, and Dutch return to the Armada where Turin (Patrick Garrow) is plotting to retake the RAC and free the kidnapped children being held there (as well as capture the only liquid pool of green in The J). Turin’s plan does not work. Weej and the undercover Killjoys with him are killed when their ship encounters a hitherto undetected biophasic shield. Continue reading →
Sara Waisglass as Quin, seen here bringing Alvis his Reckoning Day knives
The day before battle is Reckoning Day, a Scarback holy day commemorating the thirteen monks who (centuries previously) went to Arkyn to try to kill the ‘devil’. On this particular Reckoning Day, a very pregnant Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) arrives at RAC HQ alone, and declares herself as “the emissary of Commander Aneela Kin Rit”. We never do find out her real reasons for being there (she gives some implausible reasons) but we find out that the child she is carrying is part D’Avin and part Aneela. Zeph says that the pregnancy appears to be five or six months along, and Kendry corrects her, saying it’s been about three weeks. Johnny fears that if the Hullen can reproduce by normal means, they won’t need humans for anything anymore, but when Aneela made the discovery (in Episode 3.7) that led to the pregnancy, she said “I’ve found a way to save us all.” That seemed to indicate that the results of her research would have beneficial consequences for everyone.
