So the facility was meant to develop geniuses by inhibiting other abilities like communication? It’s certainly an interesting idea. I’ve always thought that there has to be some sort of balance keeping human capabilities in check. It looks like Five was the only “success” while Nine and Twelve escaped…but what did that guy mean when he said they didn’t have much time left? Does the drug they used shorten lifespans or did he just know they’d eventually be captured and killed?
Either way, Twelve has betrayed Nine to save Lisa, but Five is still unable to collect the bomb. I guess now all that remains is finding out whether Nine is willing to forgive Twelve and work with him again or whether he’ll just continue the plan on his own. He seems like the type to do the latter, but we’ll see. Also, Five’s collapsing at the end of the episode…is that meant to indicate that the drug is taking its toll on her? Presumably, she’s had the most exposure to it after all.
