Added DiffLines:

* ApatheticCitizens: PlayedForDrama. Most of the citizens are willing to put up with the First Order's occupation because they rescued Torra, and are needed to help protect against further pirate attacks. Kaz and Doza are the only ones who are worried about the overly strict security measures and losses of personal freedom.

[[LiteralMinded Neeku]] has no idea what the back of his hand and the Colossus have in common. Kaz only manages to get through to him that Synara needs to escape the platform after pointing out that stormtroopers aren't very nice to people like her, which reminds Neeku of what one of his grandparents told him about the Empire and how they treated his people. Once he grasps that Synara needs to escape, he has a solution: the platform's escape pods, which are underwater and will thus allow for a covert escape. On their way to the required turbolift, Synara is spotted by a patrol of stormtroopers, who give chase, and Neeku is surprised to learn that Synara is the pirate spy. Kaz tells Synara that they'll need a distraction to shake their pursuers, and Neeku, overhearing this, pulls open a valve on a steam pipe in the hallway, briefly hurting his eyes, but causing the troopers to follow him instead of Kaz and Synara. The pirate comments on Neeku's bravery, and Kaz sends BB-8 after him to keep an eye on the Nikto. When Neeku nearly gets cornered at the same dead end Kaz encountered earlier, the droid uses more smoke to distract the stormtroopers and send them following him.

Kaz and Synara enter the turbolift just in time to avoid being spotted by yet another stormtrooper, and are forced to listen to the questionable elevator music as they descend. They're briefly joined by the janitor, Opeepit, who complains about the First Order having taken his floor cleaner, and Kaz and Synara express sympathy. When they get to the level with the escape pods, there's only one left, and Kaz opens it for Synara to board. She thanks him for helping her escape, saying that her time on the Colossus has opened her eyes. The moment is broken by Kaz getting hit in the head by the pod's hatch, and Synara helps him close it before launching away. Kaz puts his welding mask back on and flees just before a patrol of stormtroopers arrives. They're forced to admit that they are too late to prevent Synara's escape. Underwater, Synara's pod passes a giant rokkna, Bibo's mother, still hanging around the platform. She sends Kragan a message telling him she's clear, and coordinates for pickup.

Back at the repair shop, Kaz arrives to find Tam working on the ''Fireball''. He tells her that Synara had to leave, and Tam is disappointed that she didn't even say goodbye. Just then, Neeku arrives, announcing that he's sure "they" didn't see him clearly, and that he's going to pass out now, before doing so, leaving Tam confused as to what happened. Out on the ocean, Synara's escape pod surfaces, and she opens the hatch and climbs out to sit on the lip of the pod. She watches some passing birds, petting one of them, before Kragan arrives in a skiff, dropping a rope for her to climb up. He tells her he's surprised she managed to get out, but that she's home now. Synara agrees, reluctantly.

* MomentKiller: Kaz and Synara's touching goodbyes are interrupted when Kaz gets hit in the head by the descending hatch of the escape pod.


Synara San tries to buy a ticket offworld, and is told that the First Order has locked down all the shuttles on the Colossus. In the marketplace, Neeku sees a TIE fighter fly overhead and remarks that it's the fourth one to arrive this week. Kaz corrects him that it's the fifth, and Neeku, noting Kaz's interest in the First Order, remarks that he must be thrilled about this. When Kaz suggests that by "thrilled", Neeku should assume he means "nauseated", the LiteralMinded Nikto is confused before assuming that Kaz must mean he's nauseated with ''excitement''. Tam doesn't get why Kaz is so concerned, having, like most of the platform's residents, fallen for their "rescue" of Torra. The stormtroopers, searching for the pirate spy they know is on the platform, harass dockworker Glem for his ID. When Kaz tries to help, he quickly gets in trouble too, only for the overly-helpful Neeku to step in and cheerfully inform the stormtroopers of Kaz's name and place of employment, which gives Glem enough time to find his ID card. Kaz pulls Neeku away, and as they head back to the repair shop chews him out for telling the troopers about him.

him. Tam still doesn't agree with Kaz, pointing out that the troopers are there for security, since it's what Captain Doza wants.

In the tower, Doza tells Commander Pyre via hologram that he's not happy about the stormtroopers overreaching their authority on ''his'' platform. Pyre retorts that the detachment will stay until such time as the pirate threat has been eliminated. After he signs off, 4D suggests that Pyre might be right, and Doza sighs, wondering what cost there will be.



Kaz, however, has no intention of doing any such thing, and decides to help Synara escape the platform, since he decides that although she's a pirate, she's still a good person.

person. He heads to the loading docks with BB-8, and follows Synara when she leaves, narrowly escaping the attention of two stormtroopers. Synara eventually reaches a deserted room, where Kaz eavesdrops on her hologram conversation with Kragan. She tells Kragan he needs to get her off the Colossus, but he retorts that she had a chance earlier, and due to the First Order's betrayal his people can't get within five kilometres of the platform, so she's on her own about escaping.

That night, Kaz and BB return to the loading docks, and Synara elbows Kaz in the face when he comes up behind her and taps him on the shoulder, before apologizing when she recognizes him. Using "food" in place of "spy", Kaz warns her that the First Order is after her and she has to leave. The presence of two stormtroopers questioning Glem as to Synara's whereabouts is especially convincing, and Kaz, wearing a welding mask as a disguise, sneaks the pirate out inside of a crate under the stormtroopers' noses. Kaz takes Synara to the platform entrance, where there are ships she can be snuck onto. When they reach three waiting shuttles, Synara slips out of the crate and BB-8 begins to unlock one of the ships. Unfortunately, there's an alarm, and when the door is open, Kaz tells Synara to hide onboard while he and BB lead the troopers away. Synara sees the beginnings of the chase and feels guilty. When Kaz and BB are cornered by a dead end, they're saved when Synara, having come back for them, knocks out the troopers from behind with a wrench, telling Kaz that after everything he's done for her, she couldn't let him get arrested. They run back to the shuttles, but are too late, as the three ships take off. Needing another escape route for Synara, Kaz hits on an idea: a guy who knows the Colossus better than the back of his hand.

[[LiteralMinded Neeku]] has no idea what the back of his hand and the Colossus have in common.
