There seems to be some confusion about the title. It is either "One More Card To Play" or "One Last Card To Play".  :shrug:  (We'll see which one is a line from the episode!) :)

Edit:  It is definitely "One Last Card To Play".  I have corrected the thread title accordingly.  :cool:

Well, no, the same alternate universe we've seen before.  Or at least the denizens thereof.

So, double crosses and triple crosses, and betrayals and dubious alliances-- I lost track of who was who and what was what.  :lol:

Looks like the Evil Twin plotline will be ongoing, which is kind of interesting.  When you're trying to redeem yourself and make a new reputation, there's nothing worse than having an Evil Twin on the loose.  :no:  

I got a kick out of the Androids making the trade off:  "Are you being deceptive?"  "No."  :lol:

But once again we are shown that it does not pay to get attached to new characters.  Both Adrian and Solara are gone, despite Solara being listed as a series regular. Although, between that and the flirting between Adrian and Five at the end, maybe they will be back.

And speaking of being back, I was pretty concerned that Six might be toast until the previews Spoilered his survival. Hopefully this means he'll be back with the crew for good.

Man, they really do yo-yo the characters in this show.  It seems like every other episode this season has had a heartfelt goodbye or getting-to-know-you thread to a plotline. I thought Adrian was a decent addition.  I hadn't formed any attachment to Solara... the little backstory exposition wasn't enough to give her much character yet.  But I'm always more partial to the geekier characters, anyway.

The dopples are fun. It was interesting that I kinda tweaked to something being off with Two pretty early... it was really light - something about her voice being pitched higher or less no-nonsense or something.  (I totally saw the Boone switch coming when he went to "get his weapons" though, so I was glad Five and the Android caught it, too.)

It's disappointing that they felt the need to rule out any return by Corso.  But I like that mercenary guy with the toothpick, so he's a fun one to have back.  (I don't think he was mentioned as part of the androids' hostage exchange? I wonder if Two just let him go?)

This is the second show I've watched this year to feature a group-spacing like that.  Harsh, man.

Yeah, they seem to have written off Corso in any form.  I wonder if there was a falling out with the actor or something.

Two and Three were definitely a bit off at the beginning-- a bit more bloodthirsty than usual.

I thought this was an okay episode. It felt more like set-up for future episodes than anything else.

One of the main reasons I was excited about this episode was because I hoped Corso would be back. Sure, he's not One but at least it would be Marc Bendavid back on my TV screen and then he isn't in the episode. Just... *sighs*

I have to say that I didn't see the switch with Five coming. It makes total sense in hindsight but until we saw our Five tied up half naked I didn't didn't even think about a switch. Thankfully the Raza crew were ready for that.

Guess we now know why "Five" shot the Android. It wasn't our Five. That's one future peek that has now come true.

I thought that they might be the doubles at first but wasn't sure until they started shooting everyone in cold blood. Our Raza crew isn't above killing but they have tried to find a better way lately.

It is getting kind of annoying. I had really warmed to Adrian and thought he made a good addition to the cast and then they just ship him off. After they spent several episodes building his character up we better see him again soon.

While the show didn't do much with Solara I did like her and any LGBT representation is appreciated so hopefully she will return as well.

My credits got cut off so I didn't see the preview but I figured they wouldn't kill Six. I don't know if they can afford to lose any more characters.

I have to say, I am not feeling any of the Ryo plots. Part of the problem is I'm not invested in the war. Half the time I can barely remember the name of Ryo's empire, and I sure as heck can't remember the name of who they're fighting or what the war is about. The show hasn't given us a reason to care and they've turned Ryo into a pretty unlikable character. Plus we know from Future Five that the House of Ishida falls so what little suspense that plot was generating is gone.

I think you mean Three. You got my hopes up there for a second.  :lol:

I still think that Adrian and Solara might come back.  There was that hint of romance between Adrian and Five, and they were starting to flesh out Solara's background quite a bit.

I'm not too happy about them making Four a full-fledged villain. It makes me wonder what the actor thinks of being separated from his original co-stars and having to be the heavy.
