Bilingual bonus: the orange truck that sells empanadas as well as "ropa vieja" (old/secondhand clothes).

I enjoyed the techie rivalry in this one. I miss having Aldis Hodge around on a regular basis, but we can have two techies too.

The debutante seemed a bit old to be a debutante, but her ceramicist ska boyfriend cracked me up. Like a young Patton Oswalt.

I thought they had resolved the tech rivalry between Hodge and Brianna last season, so that felt like warm-over leftovers to me. I did like the idea of Sophie having to come to terms with her Kiki persona again, but it seemed too easy.

['Ropa Vieja' is food; a tomato and beef based stew. It traditionally calls for flank steak, the falling-apart fibrous nature of which makes it look like you're cooking shredded rags.
"Mmm, smells delicious, what's for dinner?"
(with a smirk) 'Oh, I'm just boiling your Old Clothes.']

Sigh. Hardison not Hodge, but I hope everybody understood what I meant.

"We don't.... We don't play in Eliot's sandwich." Brianna must have learned that lesson the hard way.

Also there is something about the way Gina Bellman says "Our Mister Wilson" that is just so great.
