Meanwhile, One (Marc Bendavid) and Three (Anthony Lemke) went on a mission to sell the crew’s stash of guns, only for One to be confronted by someone from his past, which led to more questions than answers. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode began with One (Marc Bendavid) thinking about the kiss he had shared with Two (Melissa O’Neil) and with the crew deciding what to do on the space station at the mess hall. There, they were surprised that Three (Anthony Lemke) had volunteered to find a buyer for the stash of guns they had in the cargo hold. He had been the most vocal about wanting to leave the ship. Two then agreed, as long as he was accompanied by One. However, both weren’t happy about this pairing.
At the station, the pair headed to a bar where they managed to snag a buyer thanks to the bartender. However, while waiting for a buyer, and while waiting for the buyer at the given location, One expressed his dislike for Three. Three expressed his annoyance at One for always thinking with his heart, and his own suspicions that One could have been the one who had tampered with their memories. However, before they could do anything else, they were knocked out by a smoke grenade.
Meanwhile, Six went to a clinic to get his arm checked, and waited for a long time. While waiting, he watched several commercials on how one could use clones to travel without using a ship, as one’s consciousness could be uploaded onto a disposable cloned version of one’s self.
While Six waited, after selling off a gadget from the ship, Two and Five headed towards a casino after Two discovered that Five had a knack for games of luck and chance.
The Android (Zoie Palmer) tried to accompany Four (Alex Mallari Jr) to the space station but was refused.
At a pawnbroker’s shop, Four discovered that his ring belonged to the Ishida line. Afterwards, he decided to research on the Ishida line in his room. It was now connected to the station’s data hub.
Upon waking up, Three and One, who were now tied to chairs, unsuccessfully tried to escape. They were confronted by Jace Corso (Marc Bendavid), who demanded to know who One was. It turned out that Jace had been invited to join the crew of the Raza for the mining operation, but had to go on the run for a week. It was after somebody leaked his safe house whereabouts to the authorities. After learning that someone that looked like him had boarded the ship, he decided to wait for them at the station to get some answers. Three then tried to talk his way out of it, but Jace smartly decided to take the guns from the ship and sold them.
While Jace was gone, One, whose tolerance for pain was surprisingly high, used an electroshock stick to soften their muscles in order to escape.
Meanwhile, Six managed to get his arm fixed. His name got flagged after the doctor took his DNA to make a skin graft for the arm. He then sedated the doctor and told the others that they had to leave. He then learned that they were in even more trouble. Two had instinctively fought off and stabbed some of the casino goons after they hit Five. They had been strong-armed by the casino’s security as Two had been counting cards at the card game they were playing. Just as they were about to leave due to the station’s security alarm going off, One and Three finally ran on a board. However, they learned that now, they were even more broke than before.
Three then covered for One by telling them that they had been taken advantage of by a dozen men, and One had been down the entire time. Later, after confronting Three, One discovered that this debt would be paid by supporting Three in every decision that the crew takes to vote.
Two then tried to talk to Five about what had happened, but she refused to talk. Two and Six then lamented the fact that they still didn’t know who they were as they hadn’t been able to do any research.
Meanwhile, inside his room, Four discovered that he was the Crown Prince Ishida Ryo. She was wanted for murdering several of his planet’s citizens, and for the assassination of his own father, Emperor Ishida Tatsuya, whose assassination caused his homeworld to be torn by war.
