Further details

As the Dwarfers all still believe they are escaping from the ship, Rimmer is hurrying to the artificial reality suite to delete all mentions of the agreements between him and Lister and the deal they made in which if Lister helped him get promoted, he would help them escape.

The Dwarfers, feeling especially confused by now, manage to work out that they're being framed and that their every word is being recorded. Finding a trap door in the AR programme, they manage to break out of their induced state in time to see Rimmer being responsible for framing them. Kryten points out that if they still want to escape, they should take Rimmer with them seeing as he knows confidential things about the crew and may have helpful information to ensure their escape. Unfortunately, Holly points out that they are still in AR and that they have not escaped at all. They've been tricked!
