Hercules is still a long way from home.
Am thinking some of the writers…
… are deciding to treat the program with a bit more fun. Tier saying “This is the point where I am supposed to say that we should just leave Rommie, and that boy genius here can make another Avatar out of spare parts.”
I know that I laughed a bit more this episode than I have in several of the other episodes.
As far as the Hercules reference goes, Perhaps we will see Kevin bulk up a bit more after his “physical”. Who knows.
