That sounds awful, but about on par with the rest of season 8.
I'd like to see a dark turn like in backwards or last human.
Get the main characters half murdered whilst getting involved in a war against simulants in a sci-fi high concept environment, have a point where they get back to what has become of the earth, (life has reverted back to Paleozoic state), Lister ends up stepping on a colony of slugs when exiting starbug turns out they are the closest living descendants of humanity, throw in a plot about Lister being able to get Kochanski, but ultimately he has to sacrifice the opportunity for a greater cause, have Rimmer get a chance at redemption in a last stand against the simulants and get killed, have Kryten break his programing and learn the virtues of killing (ironically Lister) in a trolley problem (probably involving a time loop where the best out come can only happen if Lister is dead), The cat then meets other cats and selfishly forgets about the rest of the crew, leaving just a guilt ridden Kryten and Holly, Holly says something philosophical about it being finally the end of the long story of humanity, but it's not really gone, and will forever be immortalized as long as we stand as a testament to its accomplishments and remember it, at which point a scutter (that had been set up as assembling an emp bomb to fight the simulants earlier), sets it off resetting both of their memories.
