Well, it's obvious that Outside Hellie doesn't think Inside Hellie is a real person. It's interesting that we already know more about how Outside Hellie (whom we've never really met directly) feel about her Innie than Outside Mark does about his.Yes I am SO curious about Helly's outie. What kind of person do you have to be to consign yourself to a hell so terrible that you're willing to commit suicide to escape it, even if you can't remember why? Will we ever get that story?

So much of the basement is bizarre enough I wonder if the implants mess with what the severed employees are seeing.Creator Dan Erickson reputedly had the season and beyond well mapped-out, so I really hope WTF moments like the room full of baby goats ("they're not ready!") isn't a random "let's throw in something weird here" detail. I have faith that it isn't. Ready for what?
Speaking of Milchick and the Code 266 or whatever it was... This episode made it clear that they've got a lot of cameras on the floor, so to me it's a little odd that Graner, Odel, and Milchick seem to get taken by suprise by some of the activities happening on the floor. Unless watching things play out is part of what they are up to.It seems ridiculous at first that the divisions could believe all these rumors about each other, but then I think that the innies are basically all infants, with no practical life experience to draw from that would tell them otherwise. So why not. Clever Milchick running a code-whatever on Irving with the copy machine to try to keep him from spending time in O&D.
What little we've seen of authentic outside Hellie, the folks performing the severance seemed to be impressed with her. I'm wondering if she's somebody really important in the management structure, like a board member.Well, it's obvious that Outside Hellie doesn't think Inside Hellie is a real person.

So Ms. Casey IS a severed (part-time) worker. OK.I love Dichen Lachman but I can't decide if she's giving a... not bad, but off maybe?... performance. The non-severed denizens of the floor like Harmony and Milchick are, as we've seen, putting on performances for the employees, but Lachman's Ms. Casey has this ethereal, spaced-out personality that seems like she might be severed but almost certainly isn't. It doesn't bother me and I think it works in context, but it's curious.
That was really striking. I can kind of see how someone like Irving might embrace the Handbook, when it's effectively the only book he's ever read. But Harmony ought to know better.At least we know Harmony is a true believer, judging from the fact that her bedroom in in the bunker-like basement next to a Keir shrine.
OK, so he didn't take it well. It's pretty cool how they've worked all the characters to this inflection point. It started with Helly, who came in that way and started putting ideas in their heads. Mark, who on some level was probably always questioning things, got Ricken's book accidentally and opened his mind. Dylan and Irving got the most primal of nudges -- Dylan seeing that he has a son ("you expect me to just walk around here every day knowing that?"), and Irving found love and then had it taken away from him. I was really wondering how they were going to get Irving over the line, since he has been such a Keir devotee. I have to assume that Milchick engineered Burt's retirement as part of his efforts to get MDR under control, but boy did that backfire. Irving's profane explosion at Milchick was pretty startling and also quite sad: "You're all just going to stand there and let him die?"Can't wait to see what Dylan thinks of having seen his outie's kid (and his closet) next episode.
I was wondering if that really was her or I just thought it looked like her but is someone different. Then I thought about it more and the way the lead-up was done was clearly to get to a shocking reveal. So it had to be a character we have already seen. Since it’s clearly not Helly or superfluous board intermediary, that leaves the Wellness person.Holy smokes, she was/is Ms. Casey?!?
