Did anyone else noticed "What's that noise?" is the title of the book Ella was reading during the previous episode?

É tão ingênio de Peter ao mesmo tempo egoísta ele achar que os vestígios do passado de 17 anos atrás machuque Walter. Ele aos poucos está se reconectando com o pai, e essa necessidade em forma de cadeia que ele evidencia mostra como ele em seu interior preserva pelo o bem dele, pela segurança, e inclusive pelo o seu estado emocional, embora isso seja algo que Peter se relute em admitir. Walter passou quase duas décadas em uma clínica, passando por quase todo o tipo de tratamento, e para chegar aqui, sã de suas faculdades mentais, é certo dizer que ele deve ter sido bastante forte para suportar tudo.

A melhor forma de esquecer de uma vez nossas insatisfações, frustrações e erros que tivemos no passado, é encarando-os. É muito gratificante ver Peter na redenção de que por um momento subestimou Walter, e admitindo isso depois para Olivia, mostra como sua sinceridade desencadeou um sentimento muito maior agora pelo o que ele sente pelo o pai-gênio-figurão. Aos poucos eles estão se reencontrando um no outro e essa relação tende a ser mais sólida com o tempo. Tpdo esse sentimentalismo é muito prazeroso de se ver, a evolução deles tem sido constante como havia afirmado anteriormente, e não temo em dizer que a cada capítulo é uma nova descoberta muito bem-vinda sobre eles.

This episode was good, but definitely messed up the flow of quality and awesome episodes that started with episode seven (In Which We Meet Mr. Jones) and continued on with the two episodes before this one (Safe and Bound). This might be the first "weird" case that is not related to any of Walter's experiments and I wasn't too keen about it.

The guy who created the virus was killing his victims because he had a personal vendetta against them and I'm not exactly sure what his plan was with this virus. I'm sure there's a market for this because there are sick people in this world, but how would he even advertise his program? Put out an ad on the black market? I don't know, it just seemed too far-fetched to me.

We got a bit more of Olivia bristling at Harris' idiotic orders and trying to limit her investigation. We also got Broyles coming down hard on Harris and backing Olivia and telling Harris to back the fuck off or else he'll have to deal with him also.

It was kind of sad that the mother of the lab technician who was killed in Walter's lab wanted to talk to Walter just to find out more about her daughter and how she was like. Olivia was right. Peter shouldn't shield Walter from everything since he's a grown man and can handle whatever life throws at him (some).

Second episode in a row where I saw/sensed more than sibling chemistry between Olivia and Rachel. I know, I'm crazy, but the two of them drinking wine with what sounds like romantic music playing in the background and then the two of them gazing at each other unlike how siblings would look at each other...I'm talking about that prolonged shot of Olivia gazing at Rachel just before Ella disrupts them to tell Rachel that she brushed her teeth. I mean...come on now.

This exchange cracked me up between Olivia and Peter:

"He cannot possibly be that stupid."
"He's 19."
"Good point."
