When Xander enlists Jax on a dangerous mission in which she must rekindle a relationship with an old flame, Xander, must confront his own feelings for Jax 

To hell with Xander's feelings for Jax, why haven't any of her friends noticed how Ralen feels about her?


ETA: Whoops! Spoke too soon. They're finally making textual what's been subtext for the last 7 episodes.

Best part of the episode -- The Lumineers 'Gloria' playing in the bar.

Professor Uncle using the same catch line as the Avengers from 'Endgame' -- that's not cool.

But Xander and Jax are off to Euphoria 7 to track down some alien weapon in the hands of Parallax, with the plan for Jax to get back together with Cordelia Freed (something we the audience have never heard mentioned before).  And that weapon turns out to be a portal.

Euphoria 7 orbits a trinary sun -- suck on that Tatooine -- and appears to be the Earth Confederacy's version of Club Med.

Harland Fried says Jax reminds him of someone from his past -- when she looks EXACTLY the same.

Jax controls the portals -- sure, why not ?  When did Jax learn that trick since they basically stumbled into the portal on New Portland.  And why weren't there any creatures guarding either end of this portal ?

That was hilarious -- Xander and Ralen battle their guards for a full 15 seconds, while other guards with guns just stand there like nothing is happening and allowing Jax, Xander and Ralen to escape via the portal.

And they land on another planet chock full of Zatarian ships.  Probably warships.

The nonsense back on Earth with Atria and Thomas was just so boring.  And apparently everyone wants to get with Ralen.

ETA: The portals are basically Stargates, and the study group will probably turn into SG-1.

I just assumed that unless you have the massive funds to keep clones around to harvest organs nobody lives 150+ years unchanged (even Harland has aged quite a bit). He just assumes it cannot be the same girl, plus his memory isn't all that great at 180+ years old.

So basically you can live forever and stay hot on a steady diet of nothing but blue booze and cheese fries.
