- Ben is thoroughly with us. His time harnessed has given him greater than his previously human endurance - in running as well as push-ups - but his loyalties are still with his family and species. Indeed, he's one of the heroes in last night's story.
- Not so much Mike's son Rick, who was also liberated from the harness, but, apparently, only physically. At the end of last night's episode, he reveals his continuing alien loyalties - especially disquieting, in view of his father's death at the hands of the humans in business with the aliens,
- But Pope is back in action, and he's heroic, too, as he saves Hal from death. (Fine acting by Drew Roy as Hal, by the way - his intonations are just like Noah Wyle's, who plays his father.)
Looking forward to the last two episodes of this season.
