I really thought Three was going to die !!! I love the sibling-like relationship between Three and Five, more of that please.

I thought three was going to die too. But yay, he did not. Also, bystanders who give you information instead of ignoring you.
Also we are now going to play good rebels. Ok.

Not bad. I liked how the "five evil brothers" pretty much turned out to be only a brief problem. And the stuff between Three and Five worked.

The Three and Five plot was great, especially the oatmeal at the end.

I enjoyed the brief exchange between the Android and Six.

But what was up with the guessing game Nyx was playing with Four? I suppose they were trying to foreshadow what comes next, but it felt really out of character.

It's reinforcement of Nyx's backstory with the precognitive cult. She can predict what Four will do because she was raised to do much bigger predictions, before she got out.

Ditto on enjoying the Three & Five stuff. And how jarring is it now that they have a real name amongst them? "Hello, Two? Four? Nyx?" 🎵 One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong 🎵

I was very surprised to see One/Corso in the flashback, since my understanding is that you have to pay actors for those things. So you don't expect to see them unless they're going to show up in the actual episode.

Yeah, I was half hoping that Nyx would turn out to be 0 in one of those Scandawhovian languages, but no, just Night.

Oh and FOR A CHANGE I'm happy to see that Roger "I always play a badass" Cross (Six) is kind of playing against type and getting stuck on the ship and not being the dude who just fights his way out of everything. After 4 seasons of him growling through everything in Continuum, it's a nice change of pace.

I enjoyed Five and Three together, and badass competence on the part of our heroes is always welcome and enjoyable.

I'm imagining Three's Yelp review for this space station though - "thumbs down, produce okay but not impressed by rapey kinapping brothers, will not ship in again."
