I don’t have a lot to say about this episode. I knew the second Agent Lee volunteered to go to the other side in Astrid’s place that he wouldn’t come back. I also knew early on something would happen to Captain Lee to make that a smoother transition. The paralleling between case of the week and deeper arc was strong in this one.
I really enjoy this version of Faux!Livia. I didn’t care for the original Faux so much, but this one – she exhibits a certain amount of ease and humor with pretty much everything she does, yet is still clearly the baddest of badasses. I hate that she lost her Lincoln, as they were clearly tight.
Oooh, they’re gonna figure out Alt!Tight T-shirt Wearing!Broyles is a shifter. I swear, even though I knew it wasn’t going to go down this way, for a second I thought Alt!Astrid was going to tell Alt!Tight T-shirt Wearing!Broyles that Agent Lee was a shifter (lies, dirty lies!) and that was what was going to keep him there. Secondary thought was that Alt!Astrid is also a shifter and she was going to tell Alt!Tight T-shirt Wearing!Broyles that the gig was up and they had to flee together. Alas, no, it was that Captain Lee died. Part of me thinks the other two options would have been more interesting, though the latter isn’t completely off the table yet.
As always, I miss our gang when they’re not the focus, but this was a good show anyway.
