A great episode IMO. Of course I'm overjoyed to see Rainbow in action again so perhaps I'm biased. Though I miss the old Ford. While the new Ford is certainly multi-dimensional and a bit of an enigma I don't really enjoy underhanded diabolical Ford all that much. In fact, my favorite moment of his was when he was telling Shep that he wanted to go home...and that was just an act. But, it gives Rainbow much more of a chance to actually act than before and I'm happy for him for that. I have to say the these mid-season cliffhangers are really annoying though. Now I have to spend 3 months wondering why exactly the queen wanted Shep, if it was because there's something special about him or if it was just because he was flying the ship. C'mon January!
