Ajay returns to work at Mission Control. In flashbacks, the source of Mintz's PTSD is explained. Donner's major phobia is revealed during a hospital visit. The old-timers on the visit start a pool as to just how long Donner will stay on his feet. Zoe decides what she is going to do about her pregnancy but complications arise.
It's Hollowe'en and the crew are going to make a commercial, the first of 8 during their voyage, for a candy bar company that is also a major sponsor of the mission.
