Watching these eps again the other day, it suddenly occured to me why it would even be important to Aeryn that she was compatable to John, unlike Chi/D'argo who were happy to settle for "in it for the fun".
When Aeryn stumbles in to the room where John is viewing what his baby would be like with Princess Katrala, she must have seen how important it was to John to be able have kids.
Hence the taste test, as part of her developing understanding of the kind of relationship John is used to/would want, so the smile is much more significant.
We had quite the discussion of the Look at the Princess Triology on the Spacecast board when it recently aired.
The scene when Aeryn walks in on John and Katralla looking at the baby made it clear that Aeryn was suddenly realising what a future with John would be. And also realising that she wasn't going to be the one to share it with him. Aeryn looked shattered.
The thread is called "Daily Dren: Formerly Farscape Friday" and we discuss each episode after it has been aired, and a lot of people contributed real insights to the discussion of that trilogy. If you are interested here is the link.
It is a good thread to participate in, and you are more than welcome to join the discussion. Mind you, we are now viewing Liars, Guns and Money. Part 3 plays today!
Sorry, sometimes I just can't contain myself....
