    Donut's mic was a bit...off this episode. I think it's because it wasn't distorted

      It's because they had to do it without the effect of the comm system from the helmets. Donut was naked at the time.

    Leave it to Caboose to befriend unfeeling killer monstrosities. Damn, now I wish we got indepth episodes of those memories, though this is probably enough.

    soo theory, the mystery guy with the fotus helmet wants to find tucker to "serve him" whatever that means, soo he makes a fake version of church in danger and tries to get it to the reds n blues so they will come looking for church so he can find tucker

    Only Donut would be-friend alien dinosaurs.  
    And ONLY Sarge would create an army of robots.  I bet they all spoke spanish.

    SUCK IT NEWTON!

    at around 7:22 Simmons has a line but I can't find him. (this is after sarge tried to fight gravity)

    I think that was the Alpha. I thought I heard him say alpha in the introduction. Besides, the alpha could have outrun the EMP by predicting the last second required to leave (he had delta) and radioing out (as he is able to do along with omega). This has always been an issue for me and now it seems to be resolved. . . just wait 'til he hears how they desecrated his memory (epsilon). . .

    So is it just me or does anyone else think that the quality of their mica have gotten worse(specifically Carolina and Donut's mics)? It might just be my sound, but I've never had this issue before. Eh. Whatever. STILL A GREAT SHOW!

    This is the easily best episode of the season so far. A great first act turn and a hilarious episode to go along with it. Though I'm a little surprised to see church again, the finality of his last appearance was very... final... Anyway, I'm excited to see where this thing goes.

    I was sceptic at first of continuing the story. I realy enjoyed the ending they had. but this looks promising. also i think the fake red and blues are IAs. made from church when he was deconstructed.

    Part of me wonders in the missing freelancers aren't the ones posing as the reds and blues. But then I think that's too obvious. 


    For those who are wondering how the message from Church could be from either Alpha or Epsilon, remember Delta backed himself up. Why couldn't either of them?This could even be a backup of Alpha from before he was fragmented.

    "This is Chruch from ... Alpha. ... If you are getting this ... Answer the emergency ... see help, plleease. Please see help." From what I have seen, every comment only talks about the first and last part of the message. Here is everything.

    POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD:

    So, the something's going on with the alpha. An alien thing is looking for Tucker. Tucker was the last person to have all the split parts of the alpha. What if something could sense the alpha when it split - something alien and related to a certain creature in a sarcophagus that split the alpha in the first place...

      Tucker never had all the split parts of Alpha, just Epsilon and all of Epsilon's fragments

    this made me laugh, this was so crazy and at the end made me very happy.


    best episode ever!


    and like oh my gosh, Grif and Simmons did the cream pie! THEY DID THE CREAM PIE! THE SHIP IS CANON AT LAST LADIES! THE SHIP IS CANON! ALL FAN GIRLS OF THE SHIP CAN NOW PARTY AND HAVE A BIG FAT CHOCOLATE CAKE! give me three pieces of the cake! the day has come when the ship has transform from the fan fiction of them having a thing together to the canon! 


    THEY DID THE FREAKING CREAM PIE! even if it was for a different reason, maybe this will be the first step of them finally becoming a couple, next stop for them

    having a baby together and Grif being the mommy.


    Sarge is still a crazy old man, but can't stop loving him like that 


    if Carolina wants to learn to be lazy, she should not try to be lazy but let the lazy come to her, like take cat naps like a cat and be at one with the place inside her head where everything is less stressful and no one makes you cry and if you feel really down you can just sleep the day away and only wake up when ya need to go to the bathroom or eat a whole butt load of food because if you don't your just going to feel really really weak cause ya can only go for so long with no food and believe me that is not a good feeling.



    wonder if we will see Mr. Unicorn Man again soon, not gonna call him Goodbye 


    to me he is Mr. Unicorn Man


    who is trying to find Tucky McHotpants, because he wants to kill him or he will get on one knee and say "My Liege" and then him trying to kiss his hand.


    if he is friend and not out to kill him 


    please have him carry Tucker like a princess, 


    maybe that is just me hoping for it even if it might not happen but still it would be cute and funny to see how flustered Tucker can get if someone is adoring him so much and it not being a girl and making him have really confused feelings would be interesting to see.


    are we going to see the girl Epsilon again? 


    are the fragmented Epsilons hiding? 


    and oh my gosh can Jonez get anymore adorable, if he keeps this up he might get a lot of fan girls.


    yeah I'm talking too much, so I'm just going to finish this comment off by saying this


    BEST CRAZY LOVING RED AND BLUE WITH SO MUCH AWESOME INSANENESS OF ALL TIME!

    wait a second, they never said how long the temple was on for, does that mean that sex party could have gone on for several days? That could me besides grif and Simmons, (most likely caboose too) everyone could have sex with everyone.

    wait, church's message: "hello? This is church from ---- Alpha ------ really bad ------ send help" church is actually dead. This is a message church probably sent when Tex was in danger in Blood Gulch. The static opening: "This is church from (blood gulch outpost) alpha. . . " he isn't still alive after al

      That's my guess too. Sure they've brought Church back before, but they've always done it in a way that sort of makes sense. Here they'd either have to make Epsilon's sacrifice and final speech feel hollow or change how physics work in RvB so that EMPs aren't guaranteed to wipe out AI 20 feet from the starting point of the pulse area.
