Awake 1-12 OAD 17/May/12 Two Birds

Who knew the little goofy guy from Alias could be such a badass?

Seriously, the actor does a great job of switching from warm and friendly to "I'magonna shoot yo ass."

I really hope they wrap this up neatly next week.

This was our first confirmation that the conspiracy exists in both worlds.
Now Bird and Hawkings are two more characters that are dead in one world.
I think Vega is going to have to be the one solve this and save Britten.

I wish they would write dramas with the intention of them only lasting one season. Then we could be sure to get resolution and the stories would be paced better instead of being drawn out and going off on tangents. Knowing they only have 13 or 22 episodes would focus the writing.

Vega is definitely on his team now. For all of Vega's bitching and whining, he paid attention while working with Britten. Who is going to find him in the alley in the red world? Bird is dead, Vega wouldn't know where he is. It might be the Captain, after Hawkins comes back... she was getting soft up in the parking garage.

I always find it funny how everyone calls it the "red" world. For some reason, it looks kind of yellow to me

I hope during the finale they fully explain how he's living two separate lives. We know about the conspiracy, but we have no idea how he's being manipulated.

I think they're going by the green and red rubber bands he wears to remind himself of which world he's in...

In the shrink scenes, the shrinks always wear their appropriate color and the background furniture/artwork/etc is the appropriate color. I first thought the green world was blue, but his rubber band is green.

Did they have a re-shoot or something for the finale. I don't see any way of wrapping this up so soon. Probably will be just be a traditional cliff-hanger.

Or "answers some questions and opens up others"...

I wouldn't be surprised if the corruption thing is resolved, and then some big development/clue on the two-worlds thing comes up at the end.

I was a little confused. Before Bird knocked Britten out, Britten said he couldn't take the laptop to any of the techs at the police station because he wasn't sure who else was involved and who he could trust. So then when he wakes up and knows the password and he and Bird open the file, why did he suddenly abandon his caution and take the laptop to Capt. Kerry Weaver without taking any kind of precautions?

He was afraid the dept techs would say that there wasnt' anything on the laptop. Now that he has access he can show the evidence himself.

No, he was afraid that someone in the department would be connected to the conspiracy and tip off the conspirators before he had a chance to gather the evidence and confront them. But then he did exactly that.

I took it as he was afraid someone would destroy the evidence on the laptop before he could make use of it. The fact that he had been knocked out and handcuffed by Bird also somewhat limited his choices at that point, too. It also makes sense that Bird would only agree to presenting the evidence to Dr./Capt. Weaver as opposed to letting Britten take off.

Plus Weaver is an old friend of Britten's.
