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.

Pree (Thom Allison) carries Zeph twenty miles across the badlands
John’s efforts to locate The Lady’s real body have the unexpected side effect of resurrecting Lucy (Tamsen McDonough) with all her memories intact. Once awakened, Lucy is able to rescue Fancy Lee (Sean Baek) from captivity, and in the process of his escape he stumbles on four large cocoons, the suggestion being that they contain The Lady’s real body, which means that The Lady might be some sort of ruling council rather than a single individual, or that her body might be stored in separate segments.
Zeph (Kelly McCormack) and Pree (Thom Allison) set out into the badlands on foot to escape The Lady’s death squads (which look a lot like the Jawa from STAR WARS). Pree must be in really good physical condition, because, when Zeph can’t walk any further, he carries her on his back the rest of the way to Turin’s safe house, a distance he estimates at twenty miles.

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 →
