The space station wasn't as dark and dreary as usual, someone should be happy

One is really an extremely rich heir who was married until his wife was killed, apparently by Three. OMG. That's motive enough right there to infilitrate the crew. With his money he could easily have found out about the Raza and the real Corso. I wonder why he hadn't made a move yet? Was he waiting for the right time? He did come out of hyper sleep first. Maybe that was always the plan. Come out first and kill Three except when he awoke he had no memories of who he was. It adds a whole new layer to the One/Three love/hate relationship.[/background][/size][/font][/color]
It certainly finally give someone a solid, non-ship-stealing, motive to wipe out the memories of other people on the crew. Also, now that One believes this likely of Three, I can't image that he will just sit back and accept it.

Yeah, that was really a "Holy Crap!" moment. But if Three really killed her, maybe he had good reason, since he seemed to be employed by the Revolutionaries-- maybe One, being a rich company man, is on the wrong side of the war. But why would a rich dude like that go undercover himself rather than hire someone? Did he really love that woman enough to go off on a mission of personal vengeance-- or do they have another twist in store for us?
And/or perhaps his wife was on the wrong side of the war. And/or Derrick Moss and/or his wife somehow hurt Three's family.
I personally think there is another twist, the person they are making of this rich dude doesn't really computer with what we know of One.

Knowing his real identity makes his being so out of sync with a gang who've, at the very least, had to survive on the run perfectly understandable; the guy had never been in an "it's him or me" situation. I'm thinking that he suspects Three of the wife's murder but Three is in fact innocent.
It looks now like Three had to be the bucolic farmboy.
From the screen caps it seems he was a cut-throat business man, so honestly, adult Derrick Moss doesn't match what we know of One either. One could still be the bucolic farm boy, his childhood was split between country-side Earth, and some space Cosmopolitan place.

I suspect corporate competitiveness. The news report said One was heir to a great fortune, but also mentioned he was his company's "new CEO". Then his wife was murdered, and he runs off for revenge. So who gets to run his company now? Whoever they are, that's who I suspect.
Certainly possible. But I still wonder if there isn't a twist still with regard to One's identity/personality. As before, honestly, the info in the screen caps (which should certainly be consider canon, you'd think they'd know people would analyze the details
) still don't completely jive with One's presentation.
You know, for some reason I thought, when we first saw One come out of the transfer pod, that maybe One and Three were brothers (don't ask me why, I am not saying the two actors look alike, but for some reason it stuck me as a funny twist, considering how much they bicker like brothers
). I don't think that is still the case
From One's search/screen caps:
Derrick attended the exclusive private School Academie de Polaris, where he was valedictorian of his class. He then completed his Master of Galatic Business Administration at the University of Alpha Cygni graduating Summa Cum Laude.
Derrick Moss was born on Earth, in the city of Cape Town, South Africa, to Vivette and Roger Moss of the wealthy and influential Moss family. He spent his early life divided between the countryside of Earth and the luxurious and cosmopolitan planets of the Orion's Belt system.
Derrick was put in charge of CoreLactic's Industry Draco Corporation, where he increased productivity by 100% and profit margins by 200%. Derrick took over as CEO of the company after Roger Moss, his father and former CoreLactic President and CEO, died from a life-support malfunction aboard his private luxury ship.
According to Derrick Moss, a company should be at the top position in its industry, or should leave it completely. Moss has the reputation of being a tyrannical, but efficient leader, as he routinely fires the bottom 10% of his workers, while rewarding the top 20% with promotions, bonuses, and stock options.
CoreLactic Industries President and CEO, Derrick Moss, heir to the Moss fortune, headlines a charity drive for the galaxy's underprivileged children last night on Alpha Centuri Bb. Along with his wife Catherine, Mr. Moss encouraged attendees to donate generously to the cause. The Mosses themselves have donated a whopping 10 trillion bars, and through their influence, CoreLactic Industries have donated an additional 30 trillion.
Mr. Moss said in his speech that, "85% of children in the galaxy live in poverty, entire families subsisting on less than a bar a day. It is the responsibility of those of us in positions of political and financial power to try to and eradicate galactic poverty in whatever way we can."
Outside of the event a crowd of anti-corporate demonstrators gathered to protest the event, holding signs and chanting slogans. One demonstrator, who declined to give her name, explained that, "the multi-corps are to blame for the disparity in the first place. They need part of the galaxy to remain poor. Events like this are all spin."

Maybe I have too many stereotypes of successful business types and/or spoiled rich kids in my head, but that doesn't seem to compute with One
Especially the management style given. But maybe he was more of a figure head. However, then I imagine him in a bubble. That bubble may have burst a lot, and perhaps he grew a lot after that and that is reflected in his current state. But still I imagine him being very used to getting what he wants, at least as an adult, if not from family from others surrounding him. One just doesn't seem to have the confident swagger I imagine with any version of what they are painting. Unless he had a semi-tortured childhood like Four (and I doubt they want to dip in that pool too similarly twice) I have trouble seeing it at the moment.
It should be pretty easy for One to figure out if Derrick Moss is considered MIA or not. Unless Mr. Moss went into seclusion and far away from the public eye after his wife's death and has intermediaries handling all his affairs.
