Good episode! Great opening scenes, strong build-up, and big punchy climax.
A couple of thoughts: I liked Sol's foreshadowing/synchonicity comment "Believe what you like. It's the Midwest. People can fail to see just about anything if you give them half a chance to ignore it." Also, I thought "going to see the elephant" usually referred to warzones, but here Chaz and Sol seem to be using it to refer to the police station (unless they're talking obliquely about the crime scene photos?).
...OMG. The gamma was in the conference room with them in Act II? Six-person office, with attached conference room (presumably also holds six people). Lau and Todd stand, Reyes, Falkner, Chaz, Daphne, and Brady sit. So there's an unoccupied chair. Or is there? (Dun-DUN-dun.) Also, we never see Chaz or
Daphne finish their sandwiches. On the other hand, if he was there, he knows that they have an idea of what he is -- and he might have heard Lau setting up the trap with Reyes.
I'm wondering what's going on with Chaz's leg itching. Is that some sort of guilty conscience thing?
Finally, I think that the next episode's preview is one time where the existence of the LJs is actually working against you. I mean, there were several times in this episode where you're pretty obviously setting us up for the next episode's suspicion that Chaz has gone bad -- the multiple times Chaz thinks about having to behave better
than normal people, his conflicted feelings towards the victims and empathy for the gamma, the way he had to use his abilities full-bore, and the way his over-virtuous behavior just doesn't pay off for him at the end. However, the LJs sort of shoot down the possibility that Chaz is the bad guy next episode.
Random questions: Is Guinness-and-black good? I like Guinness, but a full pint straight is usually a bit much. Also, can you order that in any bar that serves Guinness, or is it an Irish-pub-specific thing?
And was the last line of the Pleco easter egg some sort of pun I'm not getting?
