I nominate Pree for Best Crimelord Evar!

Pawter's makeup being so perfect when they first find her in Old Town was annoying -- I wish they'd let her look like a person who had been running on fumes for ten days should look, especially considering that she was going to be glamming it up later on when she tried to use her family connections to influence the Company man. It's one thing for Dutch to look great all the time, she's practically a superhero, looking devastating may as well be one of her powers. But it would have been nice if they'd let Pawter look appropriately bedraggled.

Pree really is the best. Glad he got the bar back, but sorry if it means we won't get him on more missions.

I was really sorry to see Hills (was that his name?) go. I think his character could have added a bit of extra dimension to the core group.

As for Dutch looking good, actually I thought this episode was the roughest I'd ever seen her look, and just to be clear I'm not criticizing her appearance. Actually, I spent a portion of the episode thinking that it was kind of nice to see regular human frailties coming through and not just make-up spackled glamour.

I guess I mean that Dutch always looks good in that kind of 'how are you even real?' way that spectacularly attractive actors/actresses do, but I don't think that her makeup has ever drawn my attention unless it's relevant to the plot, like she's dressing up for the warrant. Pawter's makeup just threw me out of the scene for a bit.

Pree's departure was disappointing, but instead of a chirpy violent barkeep, we now get a self-pain inflicting somewhat disillusioned religious man. Maybe an interesting swap?

I felt bad, for a moment, for the old Company fellow, when he got his "headache" but then, I had expected him to die in the bombing, and him reappearing and then dying in the same episode didn't rock my boat that much. "Oh, so he's back to being dead again, a'ight."

And the RAC is still riddled with corruption.

Oh hey! This episode was directed by Martin Wood, who directed many many episodes of Stargate. Perhaps that's why it felt extra-teamy.

Dutch looked so different in this episode it took me a moment to recognize her. I do like the way they've changed her look in this show a couple of times.

I'm assuming that Pawter, being a Crechie, has natural makeup superpowers or something along with her many other assets.

Glad to see Turin survived, and that he's going to work with Our Team.
