Rush wakes up from a nightmare of his torture at the hands of Kiva's people. He goes to the monitor room where Dr. Park is complaining that the system has shut down. Rush restores it with a couple of pushed buttons, much to her surprise. He then leaves, claiming he's going for a walk. However, he goes to an empty stretch of corridor and opens a concealed panel. Inside is Destiny's main bridge. Rush powers up the systems... and his dead wife Gloria appears. She realizes that he's not going to tell the others that he's deciphered the master codes to the ship...

Episode Quotes
Eli: Okay. Destiny just jumped. This is not good.
James: Oh, try not to panic.
Eli: Experience tells me that this is a very good time to panic.

Sgt. Hunter Riley: Do you believe in anything? God? The afterlife?
Johansen: I don't know. Since we've been here, we've seen... some incredible things. We know that there's so much we don't understand--beings more powerful than us.

Sgt. Hunter Riley: You know... you'd figure being stranded on this ship in the middle of nowhere with a bunch of strangers would be the problem. But that--that isn't it exactly. It's not so much being out here as it is not being there. For the birthdays, the weddings, the funerals... simple things like just taking your nephew to school on his first day, or even taking the dog for a walk. You know, just not... not being there.
