Aeryn Sun has gone but John Crichton can't cope with it. After floating helpless in space, he's grown a beard and finally gets onboard Moya. He's alone until a space ship crashes into Moya. The craft is piloted by Sikozu Svala Shanti Sugaysi Shanu who is being chased by unaligned hunters. Those hunters break into the ship and try to get from it whatever they can.
John dreams he's on a beach with Scorpius and a pregnant Aeryn lapping up the Sun. Aeryn Sun is only seen in a bikini in John's dreams. When Chiana and Dominar Rygel XVI return to the ship, Chiana and Sikozu do not get along with one another. John defends their new crew member from Chiana but when he sees her dealing with one of the other intruders, he has to agree with Chiana that she might not be on their side. The intruders release an alien dog which cuts off Sikozus hand but as Sikozu is able to cope without her hand until its fixed, she lives. The creature is too fast for them to kill so they trick it into jumping through a fake door and out into space. After dispensing with the other alien hunters, John realises that its time to let go of Aeryn and sees her on the beach once more, not pregnant as before then walks away. Throughout the episode, John hums and listens to the 1812 Overture.
