I loved this episode. So much happened.

I have always liked the fight choreography in this show but the scene with Howard and the two indigo operatives at the end was particularly well done. I was worried at first that they would let that one operative escape from the rear naked choke with his ineffectual elbows because of the volume of the foley sounds they used when the elbows connected, but I was pleasantly surprised. Plus Howard's technique was right on the money.

Also agree with Ivan above, so much happened.

At first I thought the big reveal was going to be that the Emilys had done a switcheroo (so Emily and Howard were both actually pretending to be their other to each other which.. *mindblown.jpg*) right before the car "accident" sent one of them to the hospital on her "other side". That would have been neat too I guess, but the visiting of the lost child for a weekend was perhaps less sensational for sensation's sake, if you know what I mean?

Yeah... wow. This episode felt like emotional payoff for what had felt like a lot of needlessly complicated distinguishers between each one.

Yeah, me too, and I think they were deliberately faking in that direction with the business of "didn't we use to have a piano"?

Howard-Prime in his vest was distractingly ripped; so much so that it felt like Emily really should have noticed that this Howard is more muscular than hers.
