[holding up shirts]
Which one, green or black?
This is not the time.
D'Argo, green or black?
Well, the black of course. I mean, far be it for me to say, but I've always thought that the cut of that green shirt doesn't suit the shape of your body.

At the end of the previous episode Crais announced that Talyn had discovered a leviathan that may be Moya so when this episode opens with a transport pod approaching Moya it seems likely that it will contain the other half of the crew; it doesn't though; it contains Hubero, a Nebari woman; Naj Gil, a Scarran; Orrhn, a female Hynerian and their prisoner; a Peacekeeper Tech. They claim that they were being used by the Peacekeepers to test a new weapon before they escaped. Before they can establish whether they are telling the truth or not Talyn turns up and the crews are indeed reunited; it doesn't go as Crichton hoped though as Aeryn isn't as happy to see him as he'd hoped.
They soon learn that there is another survivor in the pod; a creature known as a Boolite... it was blasted into pieces during the attack but can survive in such a state for half a cycle. Crais and Jool set about trying to put it back together; it won't be easy though as they have no idea of its anatomy. The crew get on well with their guests; Chiana befriends Hubero, Rygel gets intimate with Orrhn and D'Argo gets on surprisingly well with Naj Gil... this means that they have no idea who is guilty when somebody alerts the Peacekeepers as to Moya's location; it couldn't have been the tech as he is in a cell... clearly one of them is fooling their new friend but which one is it?
I enjoyed the episodes where the crews were separated but it is good to see them back together again; it is good that the crew's dynamic has changed from how it was before they separated. As well as welcome reunion the episode's main story was entertaining with plenty of suspects; I must admit I didn't guess who the traitor was. The guest characters were interesting; I particularly liked Hubero as the Nebari are a fairly mysterious race and the twist concerning her character was interesting even though it didn't affect the story; guest star Kate Beaham did well in the roll. The Boolite was an imaginatively created creature; even though it wasn't nice to look at because it was in pieces! Once it becomes clear who the traitor is the action starts and is pretty exciting; including a shoot out which leaves Jool and Crais screaming in disgust!
