I'm surprised with the time jump, but there was nowhere the story could have gone from last week.

It was so weird seeing Joe and Cam so friendly.

The time jump had me so confused, I went and double-checked that I hadn't missed an episode. But, I guess that's sorta what they were going for!

The time jump was confusing, but I thought it was clever that instead of the typical "Four years later" caption, they just zoomed into the Windows opening screen "(c) 1990 Microsoft Corp."

I would like to say that Cam inventing a game on the fly to pass the time chatting with Joe is a great little nod to her game designer passions.

Wow I had no idea how much of a wave of bittersweet nostalgia would wash over me when "Velouria" started playing at the Atari party. It made me like Cameron and Joe in a way I haven't before.

Then they fucked and I'm back to hating them both. It seemed like the show had finally moved past the "will-they-won't-they" bullshit from S1 but I guess not. We just fast-forwarded 4 years to the next dumb shit they did...
