The above image I took my usual way, using my Slingbox client on my Mac. I went ahead and brightened it up quite a bit using Photoshop, because I wanted to get a look at the person in the background. Apparently, that’s supposed to be Alexander’s son, the nemesis of the episode. But take a look at that mane — it looks more like Mica or H.G. than the ponytailed man. Yes, he had a small ponytail, though I can’t see him letting it down to look like the above.
Anyway, I’ll try not to harp on the point much more. I’m just wondering if there’s supposed to be something more to this episode and H.G.’s involvement in it. I could see a flashback later, showing us that it really was H.G. pictured here, and Artie was right about her all along.
I certainly don’t see H.G. Wells being a team member for good. If you follow the usual plot devices of this sort, it’s likely that she’s using her reinstatement to get what she needs out of the warehouse. Then it will be revealed that she duped Mica, and it’s Mica who will take her down in the end. The question remains: what’s H.G.’s endgame?
I liked the introduction of the head-honcho, Adwin Kosan, a guy above even Mrs. Fredericks and the regents. Since he’s not the only head honcho, what are these people called, if not regents? And what happens when H.G.’s true intentions are found out, and Artie was right to doubt Kosan? Will they offer him a promotion, perhaps?
What do you think of those images above? Am I right to wonder what the hell is going on there?
