Pottinger is now really, truly dead, Defiance still has no weapons, Stahma is all out of effs to give to anyone by T'evgin, and Nolan and Irisa are being slowly killed by the mother of all migraines and/or a Votan mind meld. Could go either way. Y'all ready? Rahm Tak is on the move, so let's do this.
Irisa goes into Nolan's memories of when the Votans first arrived. Uh, okay. Flashbacks it is. Nolan is crashing when Amanda gets him to Doc Yewll who is so very delighted to see them, you know, what with the skin harvesting thing and all. Back in happy memory land, Nolan and his sister are protecting the ammunition position - they're Nolans so they have one rule: We live together, we die together. Or by ourselves when our brother falls for the Irathient enemy sob story. Well done, younger Nolan! Your reward is watching your sister die again.
Stahma heads back to Datak, why is T'evgin not dead? Well see, he's old and powerful and really good in bed.... Datak doesn't want to hear it and jeebus Stahma, now you've woken the baby what with your purple enchanter penis obsession. Oh we finally remembered Luke exists. Let's not kill T'evgin, let's get him on our side and use Tak's fear of the Omec to secure Alak's (and my continued) release . Trust me Datak. Sure. He'll get right on that. Or not because Omec. Speaking of Alak, remember him? Your son? He's chopping the heads off of bodies so could really do with some rescuing right about now because he's a delicate snowflake.
What is wrong with Nolan? Essentially he's brain dead. Samir, what do you think? Uh, he's a vet and why don't you trust the Doc? Well, they held me down and skinned me alive. No grudges though. The one shot at saving Nolan is finding Irisa as she has the same scar. This may be tough as she's hiding under a building right now. Thanks Berlin.
|You sure you want him? He'd make a lovely planter.|
Alak is done being bullied by the overseer so steals his keys and cuts his throat. He's on his way to steal a roller when crap, here comes Tak who just so happens to choose to discuss his plans next to the truck Alak is hiding under. Why do bad guys always do that? The humans must die! But first Tak must find out if the carnivorous plant eats Audrey. World domination foiled once again by the seductive allure of the movies. Story old as time. Right now Alak is the most useful of the Tarrs. Stahma, you're up.
|Time to blow this popsicle stand|
As Doc Yewll removes the ark tech from Nolan's brain, the one in Irisa's grows larger to compensate. Samir can't do brain surgery. Onto Plan 'O' for 'Omec.' She needs one of their drones to do the simultaneous surgery. Please Doc, play nice. Amanda already killed Pottinger, she can't lose her other sure thing. Since you saved Kindzi, maybe she'll help us. Fine, she'll help but if Doc tries anything with the tech, Kindzi is a trained technobiologist so she'll know and kill you quickly. Just so everyone's on the same page. So far so good.
|Will Irisa ever not end up flat on her back?|
Datak decides to take the Omec matter into his own hands and draws bead on T'evgin and his purple-enchanter penis (jealous much, Datak?) He's blocked by Stahma though; gurl, gloating is so not cool. And how is it that no one sees him on the roof with a gun? I'm just saying. Tak finds Alak free and after he insults Christie, Alak's balls finally drop and he gets the hell outta Dodge, er, Tulsa. Screw you mom and dad, I'mma do it myself. Doc continues her mirror surgery and Nolan apologizes to Irisa for the bounty hunting lesson. They watch young Irisa pull a knife on a sleeping Nolan but a creaking floorboard gives her away. Nolan thinks she was just cold and wraps her up in a blanket. Yes Nolan, that was real. She was, no, IS scared of you and doesn't want to be like that. For Nolan that memory was the first time he thought they were becoming a family, that everything was going to be okay. My god but these two need a therapist like whoa. Dr. Phil would have a field day with them. Surgery's done and they wake up; will things be the same between them? Survey says 'no.'
|Go Omec or go home.|
to use in serving the awakened family. Momentarily impressed, T'evgin orders Kindzi to destroy it. Ha. Haaaaa. Predictably she doesn't understand - they are Omec; they feed on the lesser races, not fear them. Oh Kindzi, if only you comprehended the power of the Castithan chivo.
|Grownups are so weird.|
At the Tarrs, a maid is brushing Stham's hair waxing poetic about the sexiness of Rahm Tak and his dreads of doom. No time for that love, Alak is home and he is very very pissed as he watched his mother kill his wife. Oh, right. That. I doubt your magic chivo will get you out of this one Stahma.
