Dark Matter - Hot Chocolate

Negotiations between the representatives of independent worlds turn out to be just the distraction Ryo (Alex Mallari Jr.) needs to put his plan into action. First, using his new programmer, he hacks into the Android's (Zoie Palmer) programming giving his team control of the ship and a way on-board using the Transfer Transit pods. The crew's former teammate is a little less murderous than we've seen him recently, choosing not to harm his former friends. However, his inability to capture Five (Jodelle Ferland) proves to be his undoing as the girl hides aboard the ship and works to take back control of the Raza.

Lost a bit during the events of the episode is Six (Roger Cross) finally throwing in the towel on playing diplomat. While it makes sense for his character to continue down this road, it's a path that doesn't necessarily fit well with the rest of the show or the other members of the crew. As for the Blink Drive, Rio may not have gotten his hands on the device, but the crew's attempt to test it at the end of the episode has unintended effects... again.
