This was a little better than the last two episodes, though the pace drags every time they have another Important Moment Between Characters. Thanks to our team, the resistance just lost two more key allies and an important research lab. Given how carelessly they've been operating since they arrived in Observerland, I'm shocked there haven't been more casualties. I guess it's because we're pinning all of our hopes, as well as every damn plot line, on The Plan. There is so much more they could have done with season five, so many other stories they could have told us along the way.

In order to communicate with the Observer child, the team enlists the help of Nina Sharp. She provides them access to a black lab that formerly belonged Massive Dynamic. After the rest of the team leaves to get an additional piece of tech, she is apprehended by Captain Widmark and his minions. Rather than be read by Widmark, she kills herself, but not before she has told him that he's creepy as fuck and not as highly evolved as he thinks. Not that this was believable in any way, but somehow she managed to hide the boy from the Observers and Loyalists who tore the lab upside down searching for him. But once our team shows up, they locate him easily enough. Long story short, at the end of the episode, all that they've managed to learn is the identity of the man known to them as Donald.

Most Memorable Quote:
CAPTAIN WINDMARK: He is merely a curiosity, and you are mistaken about him. He is no child. He is a chromosomal mistake. A genetic anomaly. Designate: Progeny XB-6783746. Like all anomalies, he was scheduled to be destroyed. But he went missing. It was a great mystery in my time. No one knew what became of him... until now. I would very much like to meet him.

I hope someone out there is working on a novel-length fix-it fic for season five.
