With RUBICON, it seems that the more we know, the less we know. Tonight's episode Caught in the Suck starts pulling people together and revealing relationship dynamics, but we still don't learn how anyone truly feels; for whom/what they are working for; or any concrete motives. On the surface, everyone is fighting for national security, the government, and API. But what's underneath that surface; what's the real goal?
Kale seems to enjoy being Will's guardian angel. He rats out Maggie by telling Will about her snooping. She informs Will that it was a condition of being hired. She gets fired but Kale arranges another job for her as a temporary worker with possible transfer to a translator position. Kale reasons that Maggie would have started lying to him, so he couldn't let that happen. Kale suggests that Will ask Ed Bancroft to help him with the puzzle. Will refuses, so Kale pays a visit to Ed (who distrusts him), persuading him to assist Will in making a connection between Atlas MacDowell, Donald Bloom, Edward Roy, and API. Ed goes into deep thinking mode and comes out a little crazier for it. But he manages to mumble the words Atlas, Leviathan, hydra, and four. Will digs further into Ed's research and discovers that Garson Security (investigative firm that Roy works for), Citizens Institute (office of K. Krayer who we have yet to learn about), and Atlas MacDowell are all at the same location. He steals their telephone directory to prove it. So now we know Spangler and Roy are definitely in cahoots. Will asks Kale what it all means but Will doesn't entirely trust him. Still at least Kale's name isn't in the directory. Kale must know more than he is letting on, considering he is able to link Japanese candy wrappers to Ed Bancroft. Does he really care about API? Does he really want to prevent what happened to David from happening to Will? Who killed David (since we only saw the back of the guy on the train, I was hoping David wasn't really dead)? Is Kale bitter that his name isn't in the directory, and so is helping Will as revenge?
