  1. Hi Mark,

    This was another great episode. What a season so far! As good as, if not better than, season 1.

    Answers to your questions –

    Rachel’s ultimate plan:
    1 Reinstall Susan Duncan to titular head of Neolution with herself actually running the show.
    2 Get revenge on Sarah. If she took Evie Cho down for just an insult, what is she planning for Sarah after the pencil in the brain?
    3 Get a cure (although I don’t believe so much for Charlotte as for herself).

    Who has Delphine?
    It’s probably that group of survivalists, although that room looked a bit better furnished than their camp would appear to allow. They are either a weird sect of Neolution or they are Proletheans. I do have a long shot theory – the person that touched Delphine on the shoulder is Mrs S’s friend Benjamin. She has had Delphine stashed away all this time. She did pull this trick before with Kira.

    Topside relevance?
    They’re gone, assuming they’re still alive – MK’s organisational chart with all the crossed through their names implied that all except Ferdinand are dead. Even if they aren’t, they have shut project Leda down, I think we might find that next season’s big bad is going to be Rachel running Neolution.
