This Show's Lucky To Be Alive
...as Whiskey activates a number of gas jets. What exactly is in the brew at the moment is unclear, but at the very least, the gas knocks the Fighting Idiots out. As an ovary begins to sing, rather heartbreakingly, Whiskey goes back out to the balcony and settles down to her own sleep, or possibly death...
...as the other three make it up to Adelle's old office. They look in a mix of wonder and horror at the ruined buildings that now make up Downtown L.A., although I think the tableau is many a morning commuter's secret fantasy. Mag asks a painfully on-the-nose rhetorical question I won't bother repeating, so let's instead skip ahead to the three of them finding a section of wall covered with pictures of Dolls, including all our old favorites, and the words "To Remember" written above them. Caroline takes a moment to examine a picture of herself: "I hope we find me alive." Yeah, seriously, because who's really supposed to be in Iris's (or whoever) body? Anyway, the three of them head for a convenient rope (actually, it looks like it's made of braided steel) ladder hanging in front of one of the broken windows, and climb...up? I get that they want to avoid their enemies below, but is the roof of this building in better shape than all the others? Doesn't matter, this was a pretty terrific episode, and I definitely want to see what's going to happen. You know, in the future. See you...then?
