Added DiffLines:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Crichton is ''still'' having trouble not referring to the Tavleks as "Tavloids".


While this is happening, Moya begins to experience metal fatigue. Zhaan and Chiana realise that their currency from the heist is actually a kind of living creature that eats metal and breeds quickly; apparently, Natira added them to Scorpius' vault in an attempt to kill him before his transport could reach his Command Carrier. All attempts to destroy them are fruitless until Zhaan realises that intense fire would work -- but to use fire in quantities necessary to destroy the creatures, it means flooding half of Moya's tiers with flammable gas and igniting it. Moya and Pilot reluctantly agree to the plan, and when Crichton, Aeryn, D'Argo and Rgyel return, they find Moya crippled and covered with intense burns. Unable to Starburst and with no currency, it looks like the crew's plan is a bust. As they deal with the mercenaries, a transport pod arrives with Jothee onboard: Crichton has traded himself to Scorpius...

All attempts to destroy them are fruitless until Zhaan realises that intense fire would work -- but to use fire in quantities necessary to destroy the creatures, it means flooding half of Moya's tiers with flammable gas and igniting it. Moya and Pilot reluctantly agree to the plan, and when Crichton, Aeryn, D'Argo and Rgyel Rygel return, they find Moya crippled and covered with intense burns. Unable to Starburst and with no currency, it looks like the crew's plan is a bust. As they deal with the mercenaries, a transport pod arrives with Jothee onboard: Crichton has traded himself to Scorpius...


* BatmanGambit: When the crew accuse Scorpius of sabotaging Moya with the metal-eating creatures, Stark intervenes--saying Jothee's life means nothing to him and cutting off the transmission. Stark then explains this had to be done, as Scorpius would attack them immediately if he knew of their situation and won't hurt Jothee because he still needs him.



* DidntSeeThatComing: Scorpius is a bit surprised to see Stark turn up.



* IGaveMyWord: Scorpius honors his promise to hand over Jothee once he gets Crichton.



* IOweYouMyLife: Rorg convinces Rorf to go help D'Argo get Jothee back as payback for protecting them and their children. She admits they could also use the currency from the heist.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: After Scorpius delivers his ultimatum to hand over Crichton, D'Argo hallucinates Jothee condemning him.
-->'''Jothee:''' You're pathetic! You keep talking about how much I mean to you, how you'd do anything to get me back. But when it comes down to it, you fail me ''again'', like you always do!\\
'''D'Argo:''' I did everything I could.\\
'''Jothee:''' Liar! You know what you have to do.\\
'''D'Argo:''' I can't.\\
'''Jothee:''' No, you ''won't''. [[ArmorPiercingQuestion Who means more to you?]]
* SadisticChoice: D'Argo is told to choose between his son and his best friend.

<<|Recap/{{Farscape}}|>>* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Scorpius had to buy the entire lot of slaves (roughly 10,000) to get Jothee, as the Canton slavers refused to search that many for just one person. As none of the Baniks in the lot were like Stark (a Stykera), Scorpius saw no use for them. He let Natira have them, and they're all quickly dead.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityCavalcade: Mostly as an excuse to actually do something interesting with all those one-shot mercenary antagonists from the EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.

!!Tropes:
* BadassBoast: Rygel's sudden appearance helps Chiana establish the pecking order among the mercenaries.
-->'''Chiana:''' You're being paid to work together.\\
'''Rygel:''' That's right. ''[throw's Durka's severed head on the floor]'' And that's what we do to people who don't.
* [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-Sebacean Hybrid]]: Jothee, which is of some interest to a fellow hybrid.
-->'''Scorpius:''' Your father abandoned you to a life of slavery. Is it his lineage you hate the most?\\
'''Jothee:''' My mother was murdered by her brother. Does that answer your question?
* [[IHaveYourWife I Have Your Son]]: "I have Ka D'Argo's son. Surrender to me or the boy dies."
* ManHug: D'Argo actually chokes Jothee doing this.
* OffWithHisHead: Durka
* OhCrap: After Jothee says Scorpius simply let him go.
-->'''Aeryn:''' ''[worried]'' Why?\\
''[beat]''\\
'''D'Argo:''' Oh, no.
* ShoutOut: Crichton refers to Harvey as "Leatherface."
-->"Man that's ''[[Film/TheTexasChainSawMassacre1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre]]''! That's a classic!"
