|Pelops. Look him up.|
|This show is so fucking '90s.|
|Suspiciously attractive locals.|
|Actually they kind of heavily imply sex without really confirming it.|
|There's also a gem that "turns the pages" to show more text.|
Fearing that the rapid aging is caused by a virus and linked to the weird sleeping patterns exhibited by the locals and now Jack, Carter takes some of his blood back to Earth for testing. Turns out its full of nanites, which I guess must have been the cool new sci-fi concept at the time because this is far from the last time we're going to encounter them.
|They kind of look like glass pyramids. Or salt crystals.|
|His hair and makeup actually change several times.|
|Even ignoring his rapid aging, she's technically a baby.|
|Take that, dude who disappeared centuries ago!|
|Seriously, how'd they miss this?|
Like I said at the start, this episode has absolutely no ramifications or impact going forward. It's fine for what it is, but it doesn't get us anywhere. There's no particular reason to skip it, but if you did then you would miss nothing. At least The Nox will gain some significance later that it didn't have on first viewing, but this one is just pointless.
|Keep in mind, she's never even seen an old person before.|
