This show gets weirder, more paranoid and more fascinating as the season progresses. For all of us who lived through Battlestar Galactica's Cylon versus Human "Us versus Them" discussions, this show is taking it to a whole other level, with multilple "them"s (or is it "us"es?).
I think the whole "Move 'em into the ward right now" idea was not too well thought out. Why did Helen think there would be no backlash? Or is it all part of her orchestrated plan. I keep thinking she knows more about what's going to happen than is possible. Has she already lived through all of this before, perhaps this is her second time through the "time machine"? Sometimes she seems to know what's coming up, but then she'll seem genuinely surprised by something. But that could come from something she did the last time through changing the timeline... I'm getting a bit confused. Please, Helen, explain yourself sooner rather than later.
Gee, I'm beginning to have lots of warm, kind memories of Caprica's Jordan Durham, after seeing Brian Markinson in his new role as Greg Addison. But he does make one think about how we are manipulated to fear what we don't understand in order to allow some groups to gain more power over everyone. I loved his response to Will, effectively saying "Duh, you idiot; we've been a police state for a while now!" As much as I disparage over-reliance on the internet by many people, I think it does empower people to get all points of view out there, uncensored (so far, anyway). The more we discuss all views, the less likely we are to be duped by those promoting their own hidden agendas.
Glad to see Tesla back in the fold, even if it cost him his experimental data. He was just another one of Addison's pawns, I guess.
I love Christopher Heyerdahl's acting ability. Through all the "Bigfoot" makeup, I could see Biggie still conflicted between the brainwashing and the old Biggie. One moment you can tell he loves and trusts Helen, but the next, he wants to be a rebel abnormal. Biggie's not back to himself yet, if he'll ever be. I hope Druitt makes an appearance next week. And Ashley (Please!!!).
