    Gloves with a missing finger. Oh, Alison, so thoughtful. And such empathy! But I see she couldn’t bring herself to decorate Donnie’s nametag.

    Cal is Daario Naharis! I knew I knew him from somewhere.

    Interesting surgical technique Frenchie has...

    And yet again, during Cosima’s outburst I completely forgot it was the same actor as Sarah, Helena, etc.

    “I may have spiked his tea.” :D I almost feel sorry for Vic with all the indignities he suffered. But hell, it’s Vic, so nah.

    Siobhan and Dr. Leekie...that’s a meeting I didn’t see coming!

    “This kind of cluelessness can’t be faked.” :D But it looks like maybe it can be.

    And then Donnie goes all Pulp Fiction on Dr. Leekie.

    Michelle Forbes gets hotter with age. Then again I have a genetic propensity for raven haired ball busters.

    Once again we see why Canadians cannot be trusted with guns.

    I thought he didn't know about the clones. Just that he was monitoring his wife?

    I certainly got a good laugh at the end of the episode.

    That's what we're meant to think. And maybe it's the case. But he got a pretty sinister look on his face when they turned away from him...so maybe he's deeper in this than we think.

    Then again, that was a pretty moron move at the end, so who knows? Maybe the writers don't know themselves, and are just keeping their options open. ;)

    I believe it.

    :D

    I never believed Donnie for a minute. Funny thing about this show is that if any one character dies, the actor can turn up again.

    Leekie could come back as a stuttering talking head on a computer screen. Probably call himself Al R. Bag or something.

    I used to like watching that show back in the mid 80's No idea though what I would think of it if I watched it now.

    Thank you. I sometimes feel like there are 25 male actors 18-40 years old and 25 females, and all the roles in all the shows are played by one of them. ;)

    So, I'm lost as usual. Am I supposed to know who Ensign Roe is? She isn't the mother is she? Just the next step up the ladder in the corp?

    I took it as him not knowing about the clones, just that he was part of an experiment. And then when he realized that the "experiment" had resulted in his wife being violated and had probably cost him his marriage, then he got pissed.

    Hence, the forced meeting with Leekie.

    This was easily the funniest episode of the season. Don't get me wrong, this season has been great, but it did seem that it was missing some of the humor of the first season (with occasional high points, like the Sarah/Helena "road trip").
