    What the heck was that facility Grace was in? I counted 5 red Xs that represented the pendants. Wasn't there supposed to be 12? Wonder where the other 7 are.

    At first it looked like a warp nacelle..... But it almost had a look of a silo. Perhaps the rebels are going to also try and build a missle and have a little standoff with the Monroe Republic when Juliette finishes hers....

    I know Elizabeth Mitchell is a bombshell but what is it with her and bombs and missiles in her shows...... ;)

    At first, I was going to comment that the Monroe Republic's rank and file are graduates of the Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy, but in the end, it's plausible that they missed on purpose so they could end up getting the amulet.

    As to "where are the other amulets," did they ever say that all 12 had to be in the USA? If the phenomenon is worldwide (and presumably it is - otherwise somebody would have been able to at least sail here from Europe by now), why can't the amulets be, as well?

    How come nobody has managed to cross the Atlantic in a helium balloon? AFAIK, you don't need electricity for one of those, and it has been done.

    There were 7 amulets shown on that map. Aaron's was listed as "Active" in the window in the lower left corner of the screen, and also as "Model C" while all the others listed were "Inactive" and "Model A or Model B". I would guess the other 5 are in other parts of the world not shown on that computer screen. A screen capture is below.

    I think that facility is the full size version of whatever "amplifier" Rachel is building for Monroe. Perhaps the big "cliffhanger" for the end of this season is the power will get turned back on?

    because that would be very risky and a waste of resources. No reward

    Really?
    No one is commenting on the fact that Nora couldn't be bothered to tell Miles that Sgt. Psycho had the amulet until after he had already run off?

    That would have at least given Miles a chance to retrieve it.

    That one set off my "Stupid" meter.

    So....is ANYBODY vaguely related to ANYBODY who has lines in the show actually dead as a casualty of the blackout? Because it seems the survival rate for friends/relatives of main characters is very significantly higher than the credits imply for the rest of society. So far, Nora's mom (and maybe dad) are dead......ANYONE else??

    I swear it looked like Grace and Randall were in a brewery. Is she a captive a la Juliette or is she working with Randall? I thought the former before, but this episode makes it look like the latter. Also, what the heck was Juliette working on? From what we've seen, it really looked like her greatest involvement with the Non-Broadcast Energy Wave Transmission (NEWT) project was to sleep with the lead inventor. They haven't establishlished that she had any significant tech knowledge and she wasn't included in the demonstration like everyone else with intimate knowledge of it was.

    Why didn't Nora and her sister stay in Texas? The map strongly implies that it has better structure than Monroe's "Republic".

    Side note: my daughter lost her glasses last week doing exactly what Google Boy did with his glasses prior to jumping in the river (sticking them in an unsecured pocket). Hers fell from her pocket just walking to class, so I am skeptical that his would stay securely in the pocket after that large a jump *and* swimming.

    The other possibility is that Grace and Randall are in the boarding area for Space Mountain and it has been repainted since the blackout.

    my favorite dialogue was in one of the flashbacks...

    Sister:"are we all gonna die?"
    Nora:" what makes you say that?!" :p

    They've made it pretty clear that Grace is a captive of Randall, just like Rachel is a captive of Monroe.

    The fact that Rachel is drawing diagrams, as is Grace, would indicate to me that she is involved in the theory and design of the project, not to mention that she was explaining it to Monroe in an earlier episode. The preview for next week also shows Rachel building hardware.

    They did strongly imply that Rachel was involved with the tech and not just "sleeping with the inventor" in prior episodes.

    I watched with three others and we were all confused by the last few seconds. It seemed like they were intending to show some sort of crazy important reveal at the end when they panned out from Grace but it just looked like a bunch of pipes and metal to us. Were we supposed to recognize anything there?

    I was cracking up at the Led Zeppelin songs for next week? Is this Glee? Will Miles choose Charlie to sing a duet with him, or will it be Nora? Mahup?

    I agree, totally out there. I am assuming that means there will be power next episode so they can play whatever Zeppelin music they will be featuring?

    I can't imagine Led Zeppelin is an acoustic cover-band 15 years from now.

    Just bizarre.

    I'm only in if Aaron cross-dresses to properly express his stage self.
