I KNEW IT! I knew Adelle was faking it. It's classic Whedon. If anyone is operating on an apparent motive, then their true motives tend to be the opposite. How will she reconcile with Topher? Even if she was faking it, it would have been easy to not give Rossum the keys to the Kingdom. Did she figure that Rossum would eventually discover the technology anyway? Was she betting on Echo?
When Echo first appeared in the snow with the tree in the background, it seemed like she was trapped in Narnia. I was half-expecting Aslan to walk up and start talking to her.
Please note that since we've learned that Rossum is the evil sort of corporation that permeates science fiction, this make Laurence Dominic a good guy now. It's a good thing November killed Sierra's rapist of a handler rather than Adelle putting him in the Attic. Adelle must be feeling at least a little guilty regarding putting Dominic there.
At first, I couldn't tell if the shadowy figure was named Arcade or Arcane (it's the latter). This is before he became Clyde.
There were a lot of twists in this episode, but one of them didn't quite jibe with me. What did Adelle say to Topher's assistant that got her so pissed off? If she said that she was replacing Topher, wouldn't her reaction have been more one of pity than anger? And suddenly things were all right between them at the end? There are too many leaps of logic there.
