Season 2 - Episode 17 "Olivia. In The Lab. With The Revolver."

Sorry about the delay everyone, my computer recently fried and I am only now able to post this. I apologize to everyone who reads this on a regular basis.

Now on to the episode. Frankly one of the better episodes in my book, especially because of the Inglorious Basterds reference at the very beginning of the episode. If you missed it, it is when Diane Kruger, the first woman to be infected in this episode, is talking on her cell phone. She mentions a doctor named "Gorlami", which is the false name that Brad Pitt used to get into the premiere of the movie.

But back to the episode. A man from the cortexiphan trials is infecting everyone else that was in the trials with rapid onset cancer, just by touching them. As the list of close by targets narrows down to just Olivia Dunham, the team begins to run out of time. But Olivia is preoccupied with her decision not to tell Peter who he really is. Her thought process is interuppted when she is attacked by the man, and as her life hangs in the balance, she calls Peter to save her. She survives and decides that it is better not to tell Peter than to risk losing him. Meanwhile, Nina Sharp and Agent Broyles decide to hunt down the remaining cortexiphan kids, before someone else gets to them.

And where is the Observer? Well it turns out that he is a big Tarantino fan as well, as he passes right in from of Diane Kruger's car on her way back to her office.He is only there for a second and isn't very easy to spot, so don't worry if you missed him. He is below in the picture with the customary red box around him.

  1. Great site, thanks for your work.
    Gorlami = Girolami, real last name of Enzo G. Castellari, director of the original Inglorious Bastards.
