Walter killed it with his (paraphrasing) "Here comes my escort, and by escort I mean prostitute." Ha.
That was a laugh-out-loud moment for me.
I enjoyed the episode, mostly because it gave Lance Reddick great material to work with, and also because it was a legit "collaboration between the universes" case, something I wish we had seen more of earlier in the season. I also loved the Walter/Fauxlivia scenes, both actors were killing it and it was just such a fun dynamic.
The Alt!Broyles situation is understandable because it's about his kid, as Walter said. And in the original Red verse Alt!Broyles sacrificed himself and did the right thing, I suppose the same thing happened here as well. I liked that, he is a decent man deep down. Plus, I do have to ask, what good is it if his son is healthy but living in a universe which may very well be destroyed?
I did not like that this episode seemed to follow in the footsteps of last week's episode (if not this whole season), meaning the writing was totally heavy-handed. Walter's shipping of Peter/Olivia (because they are meant to be and they're having sex and making the "right" baby), Olivia flat-out stating the parallel between Faux and Our Lincoln (they both have dead partners, they're meant to be!) not to mention practically giving them her blessing, Walter apologising to Alt!Broyles for snapping at him saying "omg it's not your fault, you're totally innocent in this, I'm so sorry" etc etc. Like, it's OK writers, tone it down.
So, "collapse" the universes? With a hand gesture that suggested a merge? What does that mean exactly? Collapse = cave in/break down? Or, most likely, collapse = "fold", if you will? The latter seems pretty ambitious. And what purpose would it serve? How would it work? What would happen to the alts? What would happen to the physical space people/places occupy? Colour me intrigued.
