Episode did leave a lot to be desired. There were some bright spots. The first shot of Hardison in a letterman's sweater and bow-tie made me laugh. As did Eliot's chagrine at being dressed in a "Howdy Doody" outfit. Also, as we've seen in other episodes, I enjoyed seeing Sophie in a situation where she must use her acting skills in a crowd-control capacity. We all know how much she loves being in the spot light with all attentioned focused on her.
Chloe and Brian might be related. Brian's key may reveal this.
I see there are a lot of people not-feeling-it between Chloe and Brian on a romantic level. Romance aside, I think Brian fills an important role in understanding the big picture. Think of him as a writer's tool that helps fill out the storyline in two ways. First, his character emphasizes how difficult it is for Chloe to lead a double life. Aside from her mother, the people closest to Chloe know she is Mai. Brian allows us to see that although having enhanced senses and physical abilities might sound like a fantasy come true, there are certainly negative repercussions as well. Second, Brian gives us a window into his father's world and allows us to see how The Order is plotting Chloe's demise. Does anyone else wonder how with such acute hearing Chloe's mom was able to surprise Chloe and Alek in Chloe's bedroom? It's all about suspending reality and I wouldn't want it any other way.
