...and when Echo comes out of the chair, she tells Alpha she knows him in a far more grownup tone than before, and then they full-on make out, like, to the point of chewing off each other's face, and it's not like I blame either of them, but let's get on with it. Alpha gloats that he told her he'd come rescue her, and she kittens, "My prince," and I already expressed my views on that theme, so let's follow them into the elevator, wherein they nuzzle, the doors close, and that's it. Despite my nattering, this episode was terrific, fast-paced and thrilling, but I'm getting the feeling that next week's finale is going to be the real tour de force. Can't wait -- see you then!
