Advertisements BTW, here's a WAG that might render a lot of these issues moot (and raise some new ones): Spoiler Is it just me, or did the voice on the phone sound a lot like Major Beck? Obviously there's some deliberate obfuscation of the voice going, albeit less than in last episode (it was clearly altered there), so I could just be hearing things. But if is Beck, that would change the situation in interesting ways. The question of course is why he'd have Hawkins jumping through hoops? Perhaps to protect his own identity in case Hawkins blows it later on?
