After last week’s explosive climax, I thought the LA bloc would be in store for hellish retribution. We got to meet a recently-minted Proxy Alcala in Governor General Helena Goldwin’s damage control meeting. Is he another Greatest Day true believer, or cunning opportunist? In this world, at these levels, I’m going with opportunist. Damage control meeting or no, the real decision-making power lies with a higher (literally, greater altitude from the surface of Earth) authority.
Former-proxy Snyder was super-busy over at the labor camp trying to erase any proof the conspiracy originated at the labor camp. He operates with a level of ruthlessness we need to remember he’s capable of. Perhaps when he was selected as the first LA bloc proxy, this was one of the skills he was chosen for. Something about what he knew to be the seriousness of the crime and the finality of host punishments made me question his sanity a little after the fact. If you missed it, spoiler alert, the hosts obliterated the labor camp and everyone there, staff and inmates. Helena started a daisy chain of “you owe me ones” when she rescues Snyder and then when he in turn rescued Bram. I’ve always thought Snyder would be with our heroes in on e way or another until the end. Will Helena be with him?
Caroline enjoys the heck out of watching Josh Holloway clear a room. I agree with her. He is pretty convincing as he goes around killing the Red Hand assassins in his home. He was a couple minutes late to save Lindsey (RIP), but I think Charlie might have murdered her pretty soon anyway. Lindsey was a pain, but we’ll miss Erin Way, the actress that played Lindsey. She’s been very interactive with fans on Twitter and it’s a shame to see her go.
Busy, exciting episode and we still have 5 to go!
