When Aeon is trapped in the sea of paralytic fluid

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

What happens to Aeon after she escapes from that cube shaped building floating in a sea of paralyzing liquid? The episode ends with her floating in the fluid, paralyzed....what happens next?

Your guess is as good as ours... :-)

She is left to float, for all eternity, suspended in time and space, with nothing but the utter silence and her own psyche to chew on until eventually she goes mad.

Or maybe some bored schmo finally got around to neutralizing the fluid and everybody swam free. Who can say for sure?

you know like our favorite chapter play always ends what happens she gets sticky and dies and at the last moment is free then she falls to her death then trevor loses his lust and torment no she probibally just wakes up those are obviously just guesses but ill tell you what really happens to aeon ...................................................................... .........................we worry about her

I love this episode (actually I love them all), but this one is interesting because it is one of three episodes of the third season where Aeon dies.so to speak. The other two being Chronophasia (which is debatable) and A last time for everything, where her clone lives on in her place. I think trevor who is in love (obsessed wih Aeon) figures out how to nuetralize the fluid, and frees her. I hate the thought of Aeon being stuck there forever. Ome more point. this was the only episode of all three season that gave me the creeps. The look on her face at the end was disturbing.

I am a hope to die Aeon Fan, my first time here. Take care all.

I hate the fact that the neutralizer key is so close to her and she can't get to it. I have a hunch that Trevor comes back and gets her out - though I'm not sure if he loves her more than the idea of containing all of the criminals in the paralyzing fluid. If he got her out - all of them could get out. So I guess it depends on how much Trevor loves Aeon.

I watched that one again and actually, I guess Trevor and the woman he jumped into that morphing machine with, will melt into one person. If Trevor morphs and ends up as half of another person, that changes things for sure. It would have been interesting if Aeon HAD joined him in that machine - can you imagine a creature that is half Aeon/half Trevor?

I think that the morphing process is used only for the trip, so that when they get to the other side, they'll just come out as two people again. But it would be interesting. Aeon and Trevor would know each other completely (if they don't already).

Don't worry. The episodes aren't continuous. All that matters is she's alive for the next one.

Why ask the question? Aeon died in practically every episode of the first two seasons (not practically...actually, she does die in every episode). So when an episode of the 3rd season ended like this, where she may just as well be dead, left to drift in a paralytic fluid, never to move again, with that horrified look on her face (freaked me out, I recommend nobody watch this episode after 1:00 in the morning), I was actually kinda glad. It was as close to the original two seasons as the 3rd season ever got. A rather pointless series of violent moments and running around only to end in some ridiculous catastrophe and Aeon essentially defeated by her own incompetence (remember she was the one who spilled the glass that mixed with the egg, forming that acid that tore the place up...not very smart on her part...but she was not exactly on top of things in this episode...she lost her ammo in the first few minutes for god's sake!). I wouldn't read too much into Aeon's future after that, mainly just because...it's useless. She's back in the next episode anyway...
