    I just watched this episode.

    Wow. And wow.

    I love this show. For me, it just keeps getting better.

    First I was blown away by the idea they gave us about Gary and the autistic girl being able to interact. How he figured out that she was talking when she was making the noises. Gary didn't give up on trying to connect with her. Dr. Rosen left her but Gary didn't. That right there said something to me about how great the writer's are. Then, when she shares with him how she can communicate, it's another mindblower. I loved it. Then we learn her other secret, that she is involved and not just being used. Very nice twist.

    I wish more people would watch this show.

    I don't track stuff like this, but does anyone know how it's doing and if it may be renewed?

    I like this too. It seems to get better every episode. This one, and the last one (I think) with the pheromone that makes people berserk, have both had nice, unexpected twists. I certainly didn't predict what was coming in either episode. I like when I am surprised by a twist in the story, but I hope they don't have them every week, lest that becomes predictable.

    I think they determined that she was the leader of Red Flag.

    Or at the very least middle management.

    Isn't the leader involved? :p

    Any concerns on what this may have done to Gary? They seem to show a peek at the end.

    Okay, I haven't read any online reviews or criticism of this episode, but when they broke out the clicky-rubby interpreter, my first thought was, "Who programmed that?"

    Did the girl program it herself?

    I enjoyed the show, and that she could communicate in that way, but all that stuck out to me was that once the translator appeared, it was like 2 clicks equaled three sentences. Willing suspension of disbelief, I know, since the whole premise of the show is out there, but it just made me roll my eyes a bit.

    I loved this episode, but one gaffe in particular prompted an eyeroll.

    Dr. Rosen, upon finding the girl, says (deadpan, and apparently not meant as a joke) -- "Can you hear me? Blink once for yes, twice for no."

    With it established that Red Flag is an organization of Alphas willing to use violence and terror tactics to assert their right to be different, and with Dr. Rosen assembling a group of Alphas of his own who are on the side of Good, this show is looking more and more like X-Men.

    Am I the only one that noticed that the DOT numbers weren't handled correctly? The DOT number that Harken showed the others was US DOT 3679431. Later we learn that the girl purposely gave them the wrong number for the last digit.
    The truck they stop, which turns out to be the wrong truck because they had been given the wrong number by the girl, was US DOT 3679432. When they show the number on the truck that Kosar had actually taken, the number matched what Harken originally had.

    Considering you are the only one who brought it up, you are probably the only one here who noticed it.:D
