And now, on Farscape... [[Pilot (Elack)|Pilot]] tells John that [[Elack]] senses a planet nearby, but the weather patterns are interfering, while [[Rygel XVI|Rygel]], [[Chiana]] and [[Sikozu Svala Shanti Sugaysi Shanu|Sikozu]] are trying to fix scan to no avail. Pilot asks why they're searching for this planet, as it's uninhabitable. John replies that Jool told them that every few cycles the magnetics drop low enough for the dig team to stay a while. Pilot relays that Elack doesn't sense any lifeforms, but is weak so John tells her to rest as he and Chiana take a trip down to the planet, Arnessk.

In some kind of temple, Chiana and John search around with flashlights, then, as they get to a corner, they are met by an Interion pointing his weapon at them. He threatens to kill Chiana if John doesn't drop his weapon, despite them explaining that he's not a Peacekeeper. Jool and D'Argo suddenly come out imploring the Interion, Tarnat, to get back. D'Argo immediately rushes to John and gives him a hug, as Jool does the same with Chiana, despite Tarnat's objections. D'Argo asks John if Aeryn and Rygel are with them, to which John says Rygel yes, but they haven't heard from Aeryn. John asks if she's contacted them, but D'Argo says no, not yet, but she will. Chiana asks Jool if Moya's there, but Pilot and Moya are off looking for Aeryn. John spots some symbols on a wall, and D'Argo goes up to him telling him to cheer up; he has a lot to tell John about his travels. Meanwhile, Jool announces that she is extremely happy to be there, alive, with no one trying to kill them. As they leave the room, a creature is seen in the water, listening to them...

Jool tells Crichton that this is the most important planet in the Universe, when John asks about Moya getting spat out of the wormhole [[Dog with Two Bones|she was sucked into]]. Jool doesn't remember but says that D'Argo has gone to find the [[Noranti Pralatong|weird old lady]] the crew picked up following the destruction of Scorpius's [[command carrier|Command Carrier]], and she'll explain what happened, since she spoke to Pilot for arns about it. Jool explains to John and Chiana how the sensors work to detect the magnetics, and hence how much habitable time is left, and explains that this temple is the greatest archaeological find for the last one thousand cycles. Chiana, still suffering from the rough time she had away from Moya, breaks an artifact before storming off. John wants to go and find the Old Woman but since D'Argo is already looking for her Jool pleads with him to stay so she can tell him all about this place.

Chiana is looking for D'Argo, who approaches her from behind. He tells her he couldn't find the Old Woman outside so he came to look in there, and lets Chiana know that it's good to see her again.

Jool tells Crichton that 12000 cycles ago [[Priests of Arnessk|Arnesskan Priests]] worshiped at this temple and somehow maintained a truce with the Scarrans and the Peacekeepers for five hundred generations. No one knows how they achieved peace as they just vanished one day and no one knows why. A woman, Instructor [[Vella]] (also Interion) sneaks in saying that she knows why. First she lets John know that she can see how Tarnat mistook him for a Sebacean: same height, same color, but smaller brain capacity. She can see that John is not fascinated by the temple, and says that believe it or not this place was once a paradise. She picks up a probe and explains that three of them, which together form the Darnaz Triangle, were launched by enemies of peace, creating magnetic summers that killed the priests and drove everyone away. Jool adds that Vella has found two of the probes, and if she finds the third, legend has it that she can reverse the effects – reactivating the Darnaz Triangle.

D'Argo asks Chiana if Jool is driving her crazy yet, and Chiana replies that she just keeps going on about this place. D'Argo can understand why; it can be like an obsession and they've been working here from dawn till dusk. Chiana is then disturbed to learn that D'Argo and Jool have had a fling, and asks how he always managed to stay so far ahead of the Peacekeepers when they she was always close to being caught. D'Argo reveals his ship (which he has named [[Lo'La]], after his [[Lo'Laan Tal|deceased wife]]), which has the capability to turn invisible, allowing him to remain hidden from the Peacekeepers.

He awakes in the water, woken by the creature, Oo-Nii, who he initially runs from. Oo-Nii explains that the Old Woman left him in the river, and that Vella has found the location of the third probe underground and the Old Woman swears she will kill Vella to stop her using it as a weapon, and she took John's gun to use.

On Elack, Pilot is chanting when Rygel disturbs her, so he pets her and tells her that no one's here and to carry on. Meanwhile, D'Argo asks Jool why she didn't stick up for him with Vella. Jool tells him that most Interions think Luxans are inferior, but on pressing she says she thinks he's "unusual for a Luxan." Rygel calls Sikozu and asks if she's finished with the module, and she gets it started. Back to Arnessk, Jool says that she never believed any of them cared what she thought, but D'Argo does care, and if someone would've criticised her he would've stuck up for her.

John is looking for the Old Woman, who herself is trying to find Vella with his gun in tow, to stop her from destroying another world. She is hearing voices saying "don't let them use it." Vella finds something, but someone comes up behind her, and turns her into rock so she's a part of the wall. John spots the shot, and finds Vella only to be met by D'Argo, wearing the Serax carver. He tries to keep John quiet, and when Tarnat comes over D'Argo knocks him out, grabbing Oo-Nii who is trailing behind.

As the Old Woman prays for Vella outside, Jool and Chiana join John and D'Argo. John asks why he knocked out Tarnat, and D'Argo replies that if Tarnat had seen him with Vella he would've attacked, and then he would be dead. John wonders if the Old Woman did it, as she's been acting strange.

On Elack, Rygel tells Sikozu that if she's leaving on the module then so is he. She says the module won't travel for more than an arn, so no, she's not trying to escape. Suddenly she picks up a coded Peacekeeper transmission (having earlier modified the module to pick them up), discovering the three Marauders heading for the planet. She tells Rygel to contact Moya and warn her not to approach the planet then to hide and shield his life signature, while she goes down to the planet to warn them.

John is with Tarnat outside, looking for the Old Woman, when he gets a case of déjà vu, remembering this place from his vision. Using the carver he finds the child's tile he saw in the vision. He recognises one of the symbols as possibly being ancient Egyptian, while Tarnat says one is Interion and another may be early Sebacean. The symbols mean peace and security. D'Argo is trying to contact Chiana from his ship, as he's preparing for a flyover to find the Old Woman, when he gets proximity warnings. John tells Tarnat that there's a link between this world and his. He spots Chiana who whispers "Peacekeepers", and out steps the entourage, killing Tarnat.

D'Argo is looking for Chiana when Sikozu appears above him telling him they've already captured, and to stop the comm. Meanwhile, John and Chiana are thrown to the floor as Grayza approaches. She tells him she can make things easy for him, and to prove her good will she gets Braca to bring in Scorpius, on a leash and dribbling. She says he'll never bother Crichton again, and gets him to kiss her feet. When she offers him to John, he tells her he can't come up with anything better to do than that. She strokes more fluid off her chest and makes John smell it, saying he might like what she wants. John grabs her, but only to kiss her! She tells him to wait an arn and then they'll meet.

Rygel wakes Pilot to try and get her to comm Moya, but Pilot can't do it. Braca tells Grayza that they've captured an Interion, Nebari and an old Traskan, but nothing on the Luxan or the Peacekeeper traitor. They have about twenty arns left on the planet, when Grayza notices Scorpius regaining motor stimulus, so, for all the times he had to say "yes" Braca changes the rod. Meanwhile, Oo-Nii is seen ensuring the two found probes are safe.

Locked up, Chiana tells the Old Woman that Crichton found a tile, as Jool is depressed and tells that she stole things from digs before to learn more, but never from here. She dreamt of discovering this temple. The Old Woman gets Chiana to distract a guard by letting her go to the loo. Meanwhile, Grayza uses more fluid to get John under her control, despite his resistance, and they get it on, with John offering her whatever she wants.

The Old Woman finds John curled up, haunted by Grayza's violation of him, telling him that the magnetics must push the visions further – the suggested becomes real. Grayza doesn't know that John saw the probes, since the Peacekeepers must never have it. He knows where the third probe landed, and she thinks it's her fault. She only wanted to show him peace but somehow she showed what he must not know. She blows more herbs, and tells him that Grayza can never know where the third probe is, so he must die. As she repeats "forgive me", she makes him walk to the edge of the cliff, and as Braca arrives on the scene, John jumps over the edge and into the water below, and the Old Woman says "he'll never tell you now... Never."
