Justice: I remember this episode really shocked me and made it seem like the show was going to let them all fall apart. Dangerous choices made.

All that sympathy for Wray gets strangled as she reveals herself to be a paper pushing dick, so small minded she thinks what her boss back on earth wants is of real relevance to their situation billions of light years away. Within hours of taking command her hands are shaking from the stress, I think she's quite relieved to hand it back.

Franklin was always a try hard, fretting over not getting his due whether it was food or attention. I guess he thought sitting in the chair could make him somebody.

And Young reveals himself to be an absolute lunatic.

"You framed me for murder, well I'll go one better! I'll actually murder YOU!"

"And you lied Rush, you are always lying but guess what, I'm going to lie about how I left you behind to die!"

What a freaking nutter, so clearly not in control. He should have hauled Rush back, let everyone know what he'd done and had him confined to quarters. Only allowed to work or leave his room with an armed guard at all times, and monitored by kino constantly.

"What's that Rush, you don't think I'm fit for command? Let's see how you like being left behind on a waterless planet to die!"

And now I want to know what was on "the rest of the kino footage" that he asked Eli to give him and delete from his hard drive. The footage that Eli said Scott hadn't seen.

Another example of idiocy, like Eli is going to actually delete something from his hard drive. Might as well ask him to cut off a limb.

This is a very good episode, from the suicide to the gobsmacking end. But it's also sickening so lets look at Park to relieve the pain.

Park is so adorable when she's thinking really sciencey things
