Agent 355 having a panic attack in the bathroom and then pulling herself together.

That "fuck the art" moment kind of hit me. Not that I disagreed.

Kimberly struggling into her dress reminded me of her husband zipping up another dress for her. And then the lipstick and pearls.

That conversation between Jennifer and Marla.

Norah trying to get in, desperate, with embarrassed kid.

i'm braindead today and even less insightful than usual. Anyway, here's the Vulture Recap

About changes to Hero's storyline and other source-material talk:

I thought the change to Hero killing her lover in episode 1 was over the top, but I can see how it paid off in this episode. I really have to reread the comics; the first Vulture recap seems a bit harsh about them, but my memory may have acquired something of a rose-colored tint over 10+ years. I hope they fix the Big Reveal about the cause of the event in this series; that was my biggest disappointment with the comics.
