So last week Amanda found (and lost) another BFF (thanks, Nolan!), Nolan went off the reservation killing the VC Vice-Chancellor and earning himself and Irisa a one-way trip to South America, Kindzi used a hijacked Doc to unleash a mutiny on T'evgin, and Datak, for as much as his heroics helped, remained an asshole. Everyone ready? Let's do this.
A VBI truck trundles through the badlands and comes apart a burned-out convoy. Berlin is hunting finds the prisoner transport with all but Irisa dead which displeases her greatly. But we're all about personal growth so she frees Irisa who relates that the Rapture took Nolan. Or something like that. Point is, he was here and then he was gone but he's not far as she can feel him in her head. Who needs Lo-Jack when you've got Ark Tech! Thanks for not walking away - again. No problem.
Waiting for T'evgin to return with the all-clear, Datak and Stahma play Go Fish! Her chivo may belong to T'evgin but her heart belongs to Datak. Aw, how sweet. The trouble is, T'evgin isn't going anywhere as Kindzi has him immobilized and trapped. Since he's the strongest Omec, the only wawy to subdue him is to drain his blood to keep him weak. Okay, she's got my vote for evil mastermind of the week.
|And how are we feeling today Pops?|
Nolan awakes to see Kindzi...his new lord and master who proceeds to lie her purple face off about coming up with a plan to rescue him and that Irisa is fine, she's back in Defiance until the heat dies down. Kindzi, you are a lying liar who lies. But she did remove the Ark Tech from his brain so partial credit. Dude, will you just chill? Lie back and let me lick your face, not to mention other parts. I wonder what the male equivalent for 'chivo' is. Oh goody, pillow talk. He regrets shooting the Vice Chancellor (no kidding) but to Kindzi it spoke of power and therefore a major turn on and oh boy. Grilled cheese anyone? Nolan we've established before that you are so very not sneaky so please stop trying to be; all it gets you is being trussed up like a turkey.
|Oh look. Nolan's been captured. Again.|

|Oh what a tangled web we weave when hunted for lunch.|
Good friends drink Scotch with you, best friends help you burn bodies of VC convoy personnel and dress one up to look like Nolan. At Omec central, Nolan just about has T'evgin free when Kindzi returns and she's less than pleased but before she can chow down on Nolan, Irisa arrives and tosses T'evgin an axe to finish freeing himself. Kindzi tries to appeal to his Omec pride but he's Team Can't We All Be Friends. Uh, Nolan? Irisa? This is not a fight you want to be in the middle of so please to be getting out of there now. T'evgin guilts her into a 'fair' fight of not using the second skin and gets the upper hand. After making her swear to never disobey him again, he forgives and releases her because he makes terrible decisions...so she stabs him in the neck and promptly loses her shtako. Uh, Kindzi? What exactly did you think was going to happen when you stabbed him? Looks like Stahma's never leaving her house again.
Flashback to 1978 and the Omec ship with T'evgin and Kindzi is still searching for the rest of the dirty, dirty VC. But they picked up Earth transmissions and decided that yes, this will make a great place for our new home! And you thought Magenta and Riff Raff's elbow dance in the "Rocky Horror Picture Show" was weird and awkward. In the present Kindzi performs the Omec death ritual which culminates in the eating of T'evgin's heart. There can be only...100,000? She heads to the ship and awakens the Omec. Guess what guys? It's party time!
