Rip? Rip, I need an update.

How about this update? They've boarded the ship! We've been overrun!

Excellent.

Perhaps you're not taking this seriously, Miranda.

Gary? Yes, Captain? Be a dear and open the portside bulkhead, would you?

Look, I enjoy a suicide mission as much as the next person...

You heard me, Gary. Yes, ma'am.

What's the plan here?

Rip, you might want to grab hold of something.

Yes, I am! It's called a gun! Something else.

Do it, please. Now, Gary. [screaming]

Gamma-delta hatch opened. Explosive decompression has evacuated the time pirates.

Seal hatch, engage time drive, and punch it.

Well done, Lieutenant Coburn.

Well done? She nearly got us killed. The simulation equivalent, at least.

She demonstrated unconventional thinking against overwhelming numbers. You could learn a thing or two from her, Lieutenant Hunter.

[romantic music] ♪ ♪ Declan was right. Teach me more. [laughs] [clears throat] [both gasp] Sir, I can explain.

Don't bother, Lieutenant. Save it for your disciplinary hearing.

Hey, hey, hey. We can figure this out. We'll get through this together.

That's just it. We can't be together. We knew from the start. Relationships are strictly forbidden.

There has to be a way to fix this.

I'm sorry. I need some time to think.

Rip! Look at me, Rip. [sighs] Please don't be mad at me.

Oh, no, I'm not mad at you! I... I was going to resign.

I know and I couldn't let you. This has always been your dream.

Yes, but you are so much better at this than me. I... I can't understand why you would... why you'd give all that up.

It's funny, because you're the one who made me realize that I could never be a Time Master. I found something with you, something wonderful. I found love. That thing that the Time Masters always taught us to hide from, but they were wrong, Rip. Love's no threat. It's beautiful, and powerful, and once you know it, love changes everything. Like it changed me and that's why I have to resign, because I could never belong to something that turns its back on the truth.

Suddenly my chosen profession seems so terribly unimportant.

No. The world needs the Time Masters and the Time Masters, most assuredly, need Rip Hunter.

[groans]

My only wish is that one day, when you're off traveling space and time, you'll realize what I have, and understand why I'm doing what I'm doing. I hope you think of me when that day comes.

I will... because I'll be with you.
