Mostly, I am pondering those Henry scenes towards the beginning of the episode. At first I was all, “Aww, Henry and the bug,” but then I started to unpack it in my mind. THEY HAD HENRY (attempt to) STEAL THE BUG. That is such an enormous and undeniably SF thing. And last night, I was super hung up on that, because feels and aww and whatnot. But at 3AM, I pondered it differently. Henry asked for the keys. In the back of my head, I hear Neal’s voice, “You could have just asked for the keys.” In that same scene, Henry referenced being in prison. I am now dying to rewatch that scene and see what ELSE might be packed in there, because I suspect there is more. It will be at LEAST tonight before I get to a rewatch, maybe tomorrow, and it’s kinda killing me right now!
He is his father and mother’s child. More last night than ever, right down to Hook trying to push a young into a boat and send him to an island.
I think I shall begin with announcing I have moved out of Le Tent of Doom and for the time being, moved into DSB’s tent. Yeah I know, I’m a bit of a tent hopper.
Understandable. But I’ll keep cookies on standby.
Because why on earth bother to have such a clear callback to a story that should be complete and utter toast? Why name an episode after plot parallels in a triangle that no longer exists. It wasn’t a small investment – it was the title.
But is it a clear callback? Maybe to us. But to your GA who don’t remember Tallahassee….?
