The Finder went out of this world this week, as Jack Hodgins stopped by to enlist Walter's help to uncover a conspiracy regarding space junk that he believed to be proof of alien life.
Unfortunately for Walter and Hodgins, there were no "Little Green Men" to be found.
This was another fun week for the improving series.
It was great to have the infamouns conspiracy theorist himself, Hodgins, join the cast. He certainly seemed to meet his match in Walter, who seems to hold just as skeptical views of the institution that is government than Hodgins.
But if there was anything that would have convinced me that aliens existed, it would have been Hector. That whole one-look-incapacitation thing was so well orchestrated that I thought the outcome might really be alien encounter. But it makes you wonder: does the government really have sonic guns that could take someone out like that? Creepy...
As sinister as it might sound, the storyline that dealt with the mysterious "hider," Pope, was likely my favorite part of the episode. I never pondered the existence of a foil to Walter's finding before. I almost hope they butt heads in the future just to see what the confrontation would look like.
That said, it was very cool of the team to stand behind Walter even with the ominous threat of destruction looming. Double friend points to them.
The other interesting plot to continue developing this week was the saga of Willa and Timo's engagement. We finally got to put a face to the name, and a very famous one at that.
Unfortunately for Willa and Timo, their valiant attempt to buy their way out of the engagement was in vein, for Uncle Shad is intent on them being married within the year! I can only imagine what the next step for these two will be.
So, do you think we're alone in the universe?
