[ENT] Season 3, Episode 15: Harbinger
This episode has three plots going on. Two of them seem a lot like poorly executed high-school conflicts, but the third is really interesting. It also develops the ongoing explanation of the expanse, so it needs to be watched despite the 2 rating.

Trip is doing neuro-pressure sessions with some lady. So they’re in love or whatever.
At first it seems like Reed and Hayes are at each other’s throats, but they start each sentence by saying “with all due respect,” so I guess they’re cool.
They come across a big gross ball of something in space. There’s a pod stuck near the edge with a life-sign!
They go in to get the pod, and it gives them a weird video filter.
The guy in the pod is dying. He wants to go back to his ship.
Reed and Hayes don’t get along. Were we intended to kind of side with Hayes on this one?
T’Pol is jealous ’cause Trip is partnered with that Maco skank during his sixth period neuro-pressure class.
The guy’s ship is made out of the same stuff that the spheres are made out of. Archer wants answers but the guy is too busy dying.
Surprise T’Pol and Trip are the ones that are really in love.
Reed and Hayes fight. Reed kind of becomes a psycho, but like a big baby psycho.
But then the guy breaks Enterprise with his arm!
During lunch in the caf T’Pol acts like nothing happened.
Archer explains how petty the conflict was in this plot-line
