Pros: So, I didn't enjoy most of this ep, but the character work for Seven, Raffi, and Elnor actually makes me very hopeful for the finale episodes. A lot of the stuff that didn't make a whole lot of sense before - why Raffi is only sweet on Seven at a distance, why Elnor wound up in Starfleet when it seems like such a weird fit, why Seven wanted to get away from Raffi, etc. - clicks now. I do think this is information that should have been presented at the start of the season; like so much of S2, the reveal wasn't worth the build up, and in this case, I think actually made for a worse viewing experience for it. But at least those dots got connected. DeLancie, Pill, and Spiner knocked it out of the park again. Fantastic performances, no notes. I liked that the wee bit we got of Elnor this episode was closer to his S1 portrayal, where his candor is at once keenly observant and a blunt instrument instead of just him stating the obvious for laughs. Part of me does wonder if the difference there is Elnor realizing what Raffi needed/wanted and playing up to that a bit, but I guess we'll see. Cons: So. Rios and the doctor. What the hell was that? And Rios seriously went back to the clinic and didn't collect his badge? Did Santiago tick off the writers or something? Because I'd swear his character wasn't this out of it last season. The whole FBI plot...nope. Hated it. Felt like more padding in a season that has had more than enough already. All in all, better than last ep, but the pacing and passage of time still seems wonky. But at least it feels like we've got some momentum again.
