A lot of this season has been be set up around building Pete and Myka up to something and "3...2...1..." felt like a sign of things to come.
A hookup between Pete and Myka? Maybe. A lot of the signs seem to point in that direction, don't they?
We had the flashbacks with Jack and Rebecca, who decided to explore where they could go together, despite the rather significant odds they faced of being killed. Then there was H.G. and Wally (R.I.P. Ianto), who also displayed some serious sparks.
(By the way, I would kill for a spin-off that features Jack and Rebecca over H.G. any day.)
“3…2...1…” was supposed to offer some redemption for Wells and I could definitely see some of it. However, a lot of what she was doing ended up being pompous and annoying. She’s brilliant, she was a great agent, and she always has a plan. Great qualities, but why make smug remarks? They rubbed me the wrong way.
Thankfully, much of the episode was about Pete and his lingering insecurities about Myka. Which were mainly due to H.G. The resolution between all three of them was a great moment of growth in rebuilding Pete and Myka’s relationship.
Pete was finally able to fully put his trust in Myka again. Even if that required him to put his trust in a woman that tried to “activate a super volcano with a giant fork.” It was a big moment for Pete because he has a hard time moving on from people who leave. With the past fully sorted out, they can move forward again with their partnership.
Overall, I loved the three generations of stories coming together to find the horn. I just wished there was more Jack and Rebecca and less annoying, present day H.G. Wells.
