Episode number: 1x11 Airdate: Monday July 01st, 2013
Amanda speaks at Nicky's wake at Need Want for Nicky and talks about how the mayor made her an assistant. Datak and Stahma come in late . Once she's done, Datak offers a toast and assures everyone that he will work with the Earth Republic and nods to Colonel Marsh and his aide. Afterward, Amanda complains about Datak's actions at the wake as Marsh comes over. Nolan gets a call and leaves, and Marsh explains that he came there to pay his respects to another old soldier. He asks about the election and points out that if she accepted E-Rep's endorsement then she would have no trouble defeating Datak. Amanda figures that there's a price and Marsh warns her that he'd hate to see the town tore apart by alien barbarians. Ignoring his hints, Amanda wishes him luck...
Nolan: Just so we're clear, anything happens to Amanda between now and the election, anything at all--she slips in the shower, chokes on a chicken bone, doesn't matter--I will come to your house in the dead of night, and press a pillow to your face, and then I'll empty my gun in it. Datak: And they say humans lack a sense of poetry.
