I like the fact that we're seeing som El-Aurian background emerging with Laríragos' ability to "sense" Ramirez's memories. Nice touch, it explains their inate ability to listen and understand a little better.
Ramirez knows her job and her respnsibilities it would appear. A strong woman without any macho tendencies.
They're in a tight corner though, even if it's against inexperienced cannon fodder.
