This was the strongest episode of the season for me. It depended on character interactions and reveals and did not involve the boring war the corporations are fighting against each other. I surely never saw Android (Suki!) being the simulacrum of one of the scientists who created Two, nor suspected that the scientist had an intimate relationship with her. Unexpected stuff from their wiped memories needs to surface more often if it is as startling as this.

I'm sorry something sinister seems to be going on with all those friendly folks at the Sanctuary but it could lead to other interesting plots.

I felt much the same. It was very effective and did a lot to advance the characters.

So now Zoie Palmer is playing a doctor who was also the lover of the show's female lead? That seems familiar...

I also agree that this was the strongest episode, though the previous episode was probably the funnest episode of the season.

Everything here just worked so well and came together beautifully.

Okay, I kept wracking my brain for why the actor playing Chase looked familiar and then of course they reveal he was the android that Five befriended in the season 2 finale who had the bomb implanted inside him and I felt stupid for not recognizing that.

Yeah, the corporate war hasn't been that great. I can't even remember the names of the corporations most of the time. It just has no personal connection to the crew.

They did end up putting Sarah in an android body like I thought they would, though it's a darker turn than I expected since it looks like Victor and the others are up to no good.

Okay, apparently Two is bisexual since she was attracted to One and now to Dr. Shaw. I loved Android's line of "Awkward."

The Android's name is Suki. I wonder if the show will start using it or if the crew will keep calling her Android?

Yes it does. While it was interesting to learn that Six has a family they didn't do much with it and so far they've just teased us about what terrible thing Three might have done. That's the one thing that frustrates me about this show sometimes. They like to drip information out over a long period of time and usually by the time they reveal something I've forgotten the earlier stuff they revealed.

Wow, that was quite an eventful episode. Looks like I was right about Sarah getting an android body, but now she is with the androids-- and they expect her to help them. Is that because she is now under their control or because they plan to strong arm or blackmail her?

And I certainly didn't expect the Creator to be the image of Android.  That's a bit Noonian Soong, but they're obviously going in a different direction here. Dr Shaw is more Susan Calvin than Noonian Soong and was apparently heavily involved with Two. Android was created to be a replacement body for Shaw, but instead turned into an homage, for reasons that are unclear-- and what exactly were Two and Five doing in those flashbacks?  And we now know that Android has a name-- Suki. I wonder if that has some significance.

This was certainly a nice episode for Android, with touching moments of support from Five (berating Chase about changing her settings), Six (stressing her individuality), and Three (apologizing)-- and even Four, in flashback.  I wonder if any of this will convince her to load the upgrade.  

The Android Underground plotline is certainly a lot more interesting than the Corporate War-- if they're going to rip off a story, I'd rather it be Asimov's Foundation than yet another boring space war.
