On the run from Ogami mercenaries, Hunt hitches a ride with a space bus pilot. Meanwhile, Rommie and Tyr hunt for Hunt, and Harper learns to accept the new Trance.
On a drift somewhere, Hunt is pursued by alien mercenary monster-things, the Ogami. He hastily boards a space tour bus, points his force lance at its pilot, and tells her to go, go, go.
Through the rest of the episode, the tour bus pilot (the gorgeous Molly) and Captain Hunt have a captive and captor relationship as they learn to work together to escape from the pursuing Ogami.
Obviously Hunt ends up making out with Molly.
The Hunt for Hunt
Rommie and Tyr are close behind in the Eureka Maru following Dylan’s trail. Eventually they reunite and return to Andromeda, and Hunt arranges for Molly to attend a newly established High Guard Academy.
While repairing Andromeda, Beka orders Trance to work with Harper. He’s a bit uneasy at first because he’s not sure he can trust the new Trance, but eventually accepts her.
This episode was dreadful. The Hunt/Molly story was so trite and full of obnoxious banter that’s supposed to be cute; it’s almost sickening how fast Hunt is able to get into Molly’s pants.
I liked Molly’s actress in The Killing, and now she’s currently playing the lead role in a detective show; however, as of this writing, she only has two award nominations and one of them is for…this episode.
The Rommie/Tyr story was full of dull action scenes (an Andromeda staple), but at least we got a bit of tension and conflict in their working together. Oh, and the antagonists in this episode, the Ogami? Not only are they totally disposable bad guys like the Kalderans, but we never know who hired them in the end. What a waste.
The only halfway watchable part of this episode was the storyline of Harper trying to get used to the new Trance, but we really needed more scenes devoted to it.
