Will says his next mission will be to follow Bloom and see where he leads. Ed asks what he can do. "Wait," Will says. For a slug like Will, waiting is probably one of the most fun ways to spend free time. But Ed is a man on the move, and he wants to find the dots that they need to connect in order for the title of this week's episode to be mentioned as often as possible. "The dots are out there in the world orinthebitsandpiecesofinformation, thethousandsofsigns!" he says, and then the music gets so loud with its unnecessary dramaticness that I can't hear him very well. It was something about a man waiting for a bus in Caracas, a woman buying vegetables in Algeria, and two teenagers having sex in Liverpool, and what their connection could be. I don't know, but that sounds like a much more interesting show than this. "What's the narrative?" he asks. For real, Ed. I have been asking this question since about 20 minutes into the first episode. It's kind of rude of you to call out the writers right in front of them on their own show like that, though. Finally, spent, he just waves an arm helplessly and disgustedly and walks out of the scene. I'm not sure if that was supposed to be Ed speaking there, or if the actor playing Ed, Roger Robinson, just had a hissy fit on set while the cameras were rolling and they decided to stick it in the show to fill up some more time.
The next day, Will is sticking with the plan and following Bloom around town. After successfully catching not one but two supposedly experienced agents tailing him, you'd think Will would know how to follow someone without being caught himself. Instead, he walks like four feet behind Bloom with a determined look on his face that's slightly undermined by the fact that his mouth is hanging open. When Bloom is stopped on the street by a group of girls asking him to take a picture of them, Will has to stop short and lean against a nearby fence, trying to look casual. Bloom then walks through a mall where everything -- including the dress of some of its customers (as well as that group of girls outside, by the way) -- is purple. Bloom heads up an escalator, and Will follows him. As soon as Bloom reaches the next floor, he heads for the down escalator. Which you'd think would indicate that he knows he's being followed and might signal to Will that he should back off, but instead Will just follows him right down the escalator like a dumbass. I would not mess with the ex-CIA agent who is carrying an umbrella even though it's a totally sunny day. Because you know that umbrella is actually a secret machine gun or something.
