Unable to contact Homeworld Command since the Lucian attack, the crew takes shifts connected to the stones waiting for a link. While connected, Chloe falls asleep but wakes up with Ginn’s consciousness in her body. Knowing Ginn and Amanda Perry physically died, Eli and Rush theorize Ginn’s consciousness must have been caught somewhere within the stone’s connection.

While Chloe isn’t connected to anyone, her consciousness seems to still be present in her body, ebbing and flowing to the surface with Ginn. But when Ginn physically starts reliving her death, Eli must find a way to protect Chloe without losing Ginn.

Meanwhile Tamara diagnoses Volker with end-stage renal disease. A kidney transplant is his only hope for survival. With no access to Earth, Tamara must perform the difficult operation, having found a willing donor match in Greer.

Well this was an interesting episode.
I have to admit that I didn't see the twist with Amanda Perry's consciousness being trapped in there as well. It raises some interesting questions, which I doubt we'd have got the answers to, even if the series had continued.
It's possible that when someone connected to the communication stones dies, that their consciousness is trapped in there, looping until the signal degrades unless there is a one-way connection to someone with a Theta/Delta brainwave pattern, i.e. - drowsy or sleeping.

There were a couple of amusing moments, despite the overall stern tone of the episode. My favourite was the moment in the sickbay where Brody has 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' playing, but it's not very soothing, so he turns the radio(?) to something else and it's 'Dragostea Din Tei' also known as the 'Numa Numa song'. I really did laugh out loud at that.

Yes it was an intresting episode, it will be intresting to see how they will use the two "new members" of the crew in the future and to se how the relation between Eli/Ginn and Rush/Amanda will evolve. And if they have gotten any new knowlege with the them being stored in the ships memory.
