Of course Mick writes himself a 3-boobed warrior that has sex with him.

"I was thinking about a fourth boob."
"Three was plenty."

one quibble: why couldn't they time travel right back to when the monsters are about to wake up and tranq them some more? If it works for thanksgiving it should work for magical time fugitives.

I'm actually surprised that Henry Heywood has an agenda, but I guess it's not too bit of a twist. He's a "government man" after all.

Ah, here I was hoping Henry would turn out to be the unofficial team dad, but it seems he's nothing more than a typical power-hungry corrupt political type. Darn.

Whoever went shopping for the lipstick for this episode did a fantastic job. The gals in Japan looked great, especially Sara.

This episodes sets Nora up nicely to be turned into a co-operative asset for the Bureau, one who will be available to work with Ray.

I'm glad we were able to focus on a positive experience for Mick, especially since the last few episodes seemed to have left him questioning himself and his morals/ethics with regards to his participation on the team.

Speaking of Mick, it must be a challenge to type with the gloves on. I can't see any reason for him to be wearing them inside his own cabin. Also, I really want to suggest to him to reconsider that semicolon in his final sentence. I think a colon is the punctuation mark he actually wants. (And now I'm curious to see how well he'd be able to work with an editor. Come on, Legends, give us a subplot with Mick meeting an editor who wants to publish his book and show us a quick scene of them going through one of his pages.)

I'm not too sure that we need to expand the Time Bureau personnel roster and add Mona to the payroll. The show is already stretching itself a bit thin, trying to give everybody air time. Adding an extra character is just going to make that challenge even more difficult. On the plus side, at least Gary won't have to flash her every episode. Still, I don't necessarily want to watch as Gary tries to awkwardly navigate dating a coworker. Let me guess, she's going to develop a crush on Nate, isn't she? Oh well, at least there don't seem to be any rules against fraternization, if Sara and Ava's relationship is anything to go by.

I will not be fully satisfied until Hank Heywood calls someone a butthead.

Yeah, what's with Mick and the gloves? Also, how does Zara define his writing as "good" when he writes a three-boobed green woman?

I like Mona so far but concur they probably don't need to add another new person on top of Nate's dad, etc. going on.

They've been inconsistent with this on the show; but as one might expect from his time as arsonist/pyromaniac /flamethrower-based-villain Heatwave, Mick Rory has extensive really bad burn scarring on his arms and chest (and the growly voice has some basis in lung damage from smoke inhalation).
Remember the end of last season when the gang was lounging in their beachwear in Aruba as their reward? Mick was wearing long sleeves and kept his hands in his armpits.
As a character via costume note, when you happen to notice the gloves, let them remind you that Mick suffers from physical disfigurement and chronic pain. That's part of what the gloves and incessant drinking are about.

Huh, and here I was just thinking, "Wouldn't it be hard to type with gloves on?" Thanks.
