...and then we see Caroline's memories flooding into Echo. She gets out of the elevator and meets a guy who's another version of Clyde ("Randolph" was his surname), who tells her that "Rossum" isn't his name -- it was merely taken from a play that apparently involves robots. He then mentions his partner, who's quite eager to meet her...AND THEN BOYD STEPS OUT OF THE SHADOWS. I have no idea how this is going to play out or if the current Boyd is in fact the exact same person as Evil Boyd here, but this at least seems to fit with his somewhat sketchy backstory. Also, it seemed like Boyd had Whiskey kill Bennett so Caroline wouldn't live to tell on him, but then he declined to stop the imprint when he could have, which seems weird, but maybe once it had started it would have damaged her to shut it off. Anyway, Boyd says she's very special, and is going to help her in ways she can't even understand. Caroline asks if she's going to be a zombie like the rest of them, but Boyd says she won't be like them, nor will she be harmed in any way. "You're far too valuable." She contemptuously asks if she's just going to trust him, but he steps forward and caresses her face much as he did in the earlier scene: "With your life." And with that, we're out, with only two episodes to go.
