The topic about vengeance is a bit interesting.

Wow, best episode yet. It was insane the conversation in the end of the episode. Lafiel looks so pissed with the fact that Jinto was made a hostage. They made it clear you don't want to mess with the Abhs, never!

I’m really curious at how the abhs can make a living hell but I imagine all the bad guys are going to die by gunfire or something like that. I was wondering how the rebellion could have infiltrated the security forces so well but the drug explanation makes a lot of sense.

Oh the eye glow is back, she is royally pissed. Now it looks like she is going to bring in Spoor, oh they are screwed. Hang in there Jinto.

Feel like that "living hell" thing was a lie . . . For a lot of reasons. Although primarily because the Abh didn't seem that interested in torture to begin with, and because they seemed to be those who considered an eye for an eye to be fair, nothing more and nothing less.

Jinto annoys the hell out of me. You'd think maybe 1/100th of Lafiel's cunning and determination could have rubbed off on him, considering how much time they've spent together. Or maybe at least all the space battles he has survived could have at least toughened him up. But no, he's still the same soft and passive kid.

Interesting episode. Like the exposition on the Abhs' perspective on vengeance. Just show does a great job at ratcheting the tension.

I don't think it was Jinto's fault that he got caught. They got the drop on him; Lafiel wouldn't be much-- if any-- better off in such a situation.

Concerning the Abh's vengeance, I'm not sure if I believe that or not. On the one hand, it could explain the seemingly low amount of crime amongst the Abh, but on the other hand, the Abhs for the most part don't seem like they would be interested in something like torture, even as a punishment. In any case, that was an intense and well-scripted scene. Bravo to director and scriptwriter for bringing that scene to life so well.

Spoor, on the other hand, might be an exception... She's definitely capable of handling a situation like this either way, although I don't know what exactly Lafiel wants her to do.

This season is doing better than I expected. The idea of being grounded for most of the show and especially having less a less direct connection between Jinto and Lafiel throughout sounded like a hard to execute idea, but I have to say that this has pulled it off satisfactorily. We've developed Jinto's character, gained tension in the relationship between Jinto and Lafiel, and are still getting more insight into the Abh culture and how they relate to other cultures.

I would be kidding myself if I didn't admit that this is at least as good as the second season.

Damn, the tension in this episode was insane. I was on the edge of my seat. Also, not sure why Jinto was so scared. He has been in battles before on ground (the planet he and Lafiel were trapped on) and space.

If he were not such a coward, they probably would have treated him with more respect and not kick him around. At least he was able to smile at Lafiel.

RIP that Meldeen guy. Although sometimes it seems he taken Jinto and Abh help for granted, but at least he's really a responsible guy till the end. o7

And I really hope the Abh's hell is really a thing.
