for some reason Mercury had a couple of pauldrons and a blue tabard on over her usual Sailor uniform and was carrying a broadsword wreathed in blue flames (I think they might have been some of those freaky impossible "cold flames")

Yep. The show actually does a pretty good job of making it more believable that people wouldn't recognize the Senshi as easily as you'd think as they look fairly different between civilian and senshi guises.

Re: Episode #121: A Mystic Flower That Steals Hearts! The Third Witch, Tellur!

Regarding the "how much does Pluto know" question, here's a theory of how her future knowledge could work (Shadowjack and others familiar with GURPS may recognize terms from Time Travel and Infinite Worlds).

The Sailor Moon universe could work with time that is plastic, but high-inertia. That is, you can change events, but the future is high-probability - changes tend to cancel out, leading to basically the same result, barring truly extreme alterations. So Pluto could go back in time, knowing that, for example, her mere presence would not cause history to veer off immediately. She can even give the other Sailors hints and advice, because "The monster of the week is defeated slightly faster than it was originally" isn't likely to throw off history too much either.
But now, Sailor Saturn has shown up, and Pluto is very confused, because Saturn was not in her memories of the "original" timeline, at least not at this point. Clearly, Saturn's mere presence isn't enough to disrupt the timeline, because Pluto still has memories of the Silver Millenium, and she hasn't vanished due to paradox or anything. But Saturn's full power being used sure sounds like the sort of "significant change" that could actually push history off the rails.
So now Pluto is working without a map, essentially. She doesn't know what to do - does she go along with Uranus and Neptune's "Kill Hotaru" plan, in the hope that that will keep things on track? Or does she trust in Sailor Moon and the others, to allow Saturn's full power to awaken and hope they can still pull off the Silver Millennium as they should? Her concern for changing the timestream is warring with her trust in her Princess and her basic good nature, which doesn't like the idea of killing anyone, particularly a friend of Chibi-Usa.

(I haven't seen any Sailor Moon episodes that deal with Pluto directly after these ones, so it may be contradicted by later stuff. But currently, it seems to explain Pluto's observed behavior.)

Funny you should say that on page 69...

Happy birthday Ami! You're one year closer to dying... far off though that may be.

I bought her some gloves, so she doesn't have to get her hands dirty when she punches someone a new asshole.

Considering she's alive in the 2990s, I think she has less to worry about on that front than most of us.
