Episode 7: 'I Know Who You Are' 83

Episode 7: "I Know Who You Are"

This time we'll discover a little more about Blake Sterling's past and some of the events that have made him the man he is today. Sean and Leila are still on the run, trying to figure out what might have happened to Leila's sister Samantha. Hal Holbrook is back (not just his voice this time!) and Paula Malcomson returns as Madeline. And don't miss the chilling ending

Thanks maven.

SG_Tess said...

Am I the only one still watching?

maven said...

Gosh, Tess, I hope not. Hoping more show up!

SG_Tess said...

Me too or it'll be a very one sided discussion.

Black Swan said...

I'm here! EB's geebies

Black Swan said...

Nice to see Hal Hollbrook again.. but he's the one who hired the assassins and said WE would be in trouble, so... who's WE? The EB's?

It was fun to see that page from Madeline I saw in the previous post. I'll check the comments there before saying anything about it, tho.

SG_Tess said...

Hi Black Swan
Blake's wife is a teacher. I like how she said their bodies are in their chairs and projecting thier consciousness somewhere else.

SG_Tess said...

Yes. I knew she was his mother.

Black Swan said...

Hi SG

Yeah, that's cool.

Bratty kid! LOL! As a mother, I applaud that taking of Thomas down a few steps there (but I don't trust that he'll stop his power-trip. He says that their advanced math can predict our economy.. hmmm. putting to much trust in numbers, IMO. He's forgetting the variables.. and the black swans, LOL!

Black Swan said...

Leave Simon alone! I like him!

SG_Tess said...

Me to B Swan.
Just cause his wife fooled him he doesn't trust anyone.

maven said...

I found a pic for the episode...catch ya later!

K said...

sec shell corporations? did anyone guess that?

Black Swan said...

That was extremely far-fetched that there wouldn't be anyone on the other side of the building where they escaped.

SG_Tess said...

Well I was right about the girls. The numbers I never would have figured out.

Hmmm Shell Corporations.

Black Swan said...

a shell corporation = fake corp

SG_Tess said...

Maybe Dempsey (Hal Holbrook) is working for Thomas.

SG_Tess said...

Swan.
Right.

SG_Tess said...

oh man!

K said...

oh,now i feel sorry for that little guy

SG_Tess said...

Do you think Simon's friend will try to protect him?

Black Swan said...

so, that was Thomas changing the blood samples so Simon's dna would come back human, right?

Black Swan said...

me too, K

SG_Tess said...

Hi K

SG_Tess said...

Yeah I think so Swan.

SG_Tess said...

lol yeah

K said...

ooh, now that's just creepy

Black Swan said...

That scene with Blake reminded me a bit of Sawyer and Cassidy when she said she had money he didn't know about and Sawyer's first reaction was.. hey, then let's just get out of here and live on a island somewhere. (or something like that, LOL.. I remember him saying' 'till they're toes up') But no, Cassidy wanted to do one more big con. I always thought that made her suspicious.

Poor Justin Murphy.. Thomas has made it so that he'll be living hell on earth here...

WTH?? were those 'girls' old ladies?!?

SG_Tess said...

What the Heck?!

K said...

Some sort of experiment to make the Inostrankans appear to age? So they can blend in better?

SG_Tess said...

Maybe K.

SG_Tess said...

Swan
Drinking mojitos.

Black Swan said...

I don't think those 'girls' looked capable of 'blending in'.. LOL

Hey, how about this? The 'girls' are what happens when you have a mixed marriage.. half human, half alien.

The effects show up precisely when they're 9 years old? maybe?

K said...

You just had to bring up a Sawyer/Cassiday scene with Sawyer in a towel didn't you? I miss Lost. . lol

Black Swan said...

K, yeah.. that could be it.

thanks, SG.. wow, good memory!

K said...

BS - That's okay - I didn't especially like Justin Murphy anyway. He was a little too quick to jump on Simon I thought and I have finally come around to liking Simon.

Loved that Sophia slapped Thomas though. . .kind of had that figured as a mother/son relationship after the way she said, 'we'll discuss this later' or something like that. . .

Melissa_Lossa said...

Holy cow - thanks, maven! Got home late from work and this totally slipped my mind.

Thanks for getting a post up. Sorry about that, everyone!

SG_Tess said...

Swan
You're welcome.

K
I knew you'd start to like Simon. :)

Black Swan said...

K, I know! I still miss Lost too!! and we've gotta wait 'til next December (2011) to see Josh in M:I4 I will strive to survive until then, LOL.

That's pretty harsh.. I wouldn't wish the kind of treatment Justin Murphy's gonna get on my worst enemy.

SG_Tess said...

Not a problem Mel.

K said...

SGTess - I liked his love story. . .you know what a sucker I am for a love story. lol

Black Swan said...

((waves to Mel)) Nice weather, huh? Hope you were able to get out and enjoy it today!

SG_Tess said...

K
So did I. It was so sad when he went to visit her when she was old.

SG_Tess said...

Swan
Are you watching H50?
Did that Mentalist comercial have "Blake" in it?

Black Swan said...

Sorry, SG.. I've got H50 on, but I'm not watching closely so I missed it

Black Swan said...

btw, I missed part of Blake's explanation of why he went bald and gray.. anybody?

SG_Tess said...

Dempsey has a flower that have been genenticly engineered to open every month that normally only opens once every 2 years.

Has he been doing the same type of genetic engineering/testing on the girls. If so why?

SG_Tess said...

ooo the later it gets the worse my typing gets.... and spelling and grammar...lol

SG_Tess said...

Swan
Blake said My first 10 years on the job he lost half his hair and the other half went grey. That's what this job does to most people. Agent Lee looks as fresh as the day I hired him.

maven said...

Small group tonight. Hi, everyone!

I had thought that the Hal Holbrook character was not part of the EBEs, but that phone conversation seemed to put him as one of them (why would he be so old, though?).

Also noticed Sterling's wife saying the kid's were projecting their consciousness somewhere else.

So Sophia is definitely the leader. And confirmation that Thomas is her son feeling his oats! :) And wasn't that the same flowers (white) in the vase in Thomas' apt. as was with Dempsey?

Seems we have some daddy issues here again with Sterling and his father.

At least we have a name for the 44ers on the loose: The Sleepers.

You guys are right..would never have figured out they were shell corporation codes. Or that the names were missing kids!

Did Madeline and the computer guy set this up?

The old blood tube switcheroo. How did Blake not know that was Thomas in the elevator?

Well, that ending a a bit creepy. Some kind of genetic engineering thing to study aging? Good catch on Dempsey and his flowers, Tess.

No problem, ML! Glad I was around at the right time. After next Monday, I'll be cruising the Panama Canal for a while and will be missing 3 whole Mondays!!! I think Zort knows how to pre-set posts to happen at the right time.

Zort70 said...

Hi all.

Just checking in after watching the episode.

The projecting conciousness line definitely stood out, more than just a throw away comment for me.

Lots going on tonight, do you think Peter is actually Truthseeker ?

Blake's dad is definitely a pushy parent !

If the president offered me a beer I'd much rather have a whole bottle than a few sips from the bottle that was already open.

SG_Tess said...

I think Dempsey discovered one or more of the sleepers, maybe Thomas and is using their advanced knowledge to cure himself. He's on an IV. Or he's trying to slow down his aging because he's dying.

He's kidnapping children to do genetic experiments on them. I also wonder if he's the one doing Thomas' investing for him. I don't think he's a sleeper. Carter might be. I'm still not sure about Vicky.

If those girls were only taken 6 months ago they changed very quickly, and why only their faces?

I figured they were girls names based on the last promo but the numbers......what does SEC shell companies have to do with the girls?

Maven
I think Blake did recognize Thomas but at the point he was second guessing himself. I'll have to check on those flowers I didn't notice.

SG_Tess said...

...at that point...

K said...

I do like how they seem to be getting me to like these people with the backstories. . .because I wasn't all that crazy about Simon or Blake Sterling before the backstory and now I feel sorry for both of them. Poor fellows. . .

I can't wait for Thomas's backstory!!!

That should be a good one.

It's intersting that they're calling the wormhole/vortex a portal. Sounds like time travel to me.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I just wanted to say hi. Were way behind in the epi's so I haven't been in. Hope everyone is well.

Zort70 said...

Hi Lisa, can I ask the obvious question - How are you ?

SG_Tess said...

Hi Lisa
Miss you around here.

maven said...

Good morning. Thanks, Zort, for adding that comment button (couldn't figure out how to do it)! Hope things are going well for you, Lisa.

Dempsey sure seems to be into genetic engineering with his talk about the flowers. Maybe he's trying to figure out how to control aging (Joop) since he's so old and he wants to live forever? Which leads me to believe that Samantha might be a hybrid that will become another test subject. Which means Michael might be a Sleeper.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

it depends on the day. Today lots of pain- like my head in a vice being cranked on alot. other days I'm good. Next MRI is in Feb. so no surgery till then at least unless this pain gets unbearable. To me it is already but they say it's not so I just deal iwth it and buck up. Miss you all too !

K said...

Maybe Hal Holbrook is one of those sleepers and he's on the same drugs the little girls are. . .

Lisa - Sorry you haven't found any relief. It's good to hear from you.

SG_Tess said...

K
Hmm I like that. Except I think he's human.

LotteryTicket said...

What no mouse geneticist?!!!! Darn. lol

Lisa, sorry to read that you are in such pain. Hope today was better.

The girls were of such similarity up until the creepy end so maybe clones that are placed in sleeper homes. Wonder if there are any little boys?

Just Thinking said...

Hi Lisa- hope I hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

Just got to watch-sorry I missed you all.

So Madeline says the someone out there making Mike fly the plane, etc, is doing it for reasons "not political". That combined with the corporate spin about "shell companies" maybe means rich guy trying to exploit the 44's.

As you have said, Dempsey may be trying to prolong his life.

Just Thinking said...

Ah- along those lines- maybe Dempsy is taking something from the girls-assuming they are 44's- that keeps him alive, and causes them to age when it is removed.

LotteryTicket said...

there is new video up at TruthSeeker Leila "kidnapping' Dr. in Atlanta. ?

maven said...

I saw that earlier, LT. I wonder what Leila would need a doctor for and get so desperate to kidnap one. Could it be for her father, sister, or Sean?

Zort70 said...

Lisa hope there are more good days than bad.

Maven - it was the double quotes around the title that made the comment button disappear.

It may turn out that Dempsey is playing the long game with the 44's and has a much larger plan.

JT I like the idea of him removing something from the girls to stop him aging (or to put it another way, it's a horrible thing to do but a good explanation !)

I'm off to watch the new truthseeker video.

Zort70 said...

Just looked at the video, and there is a big edit, you have 15:14, where nothing happens, then it jumps to 15:16 where Leila is in the middle of what she is doing.

SG_Tess said...

I noticed it had been edited to. Leila just appears, but I didn't look at how much time if was. Also you can see there's a driver already in the car at the begining of the video. With the edit it makes it seem like it's the doctor but maybe it's not. It could be Sean or Leila. There's a lot of movement going on in thar car before the door opens. Maybe the good doctor was car jacked.

With the different people walking around up by the building it's hard to believe he was brought from there at gun point and nobody noticed.

Zort70 said...

I've just created a new post about a Fringe / The Event crossover.

Ok, maybe I'm reading too much in to it, but I couldn't resist :-)

SG_Tess said...

I heard about the glyphs at a couple of different sources.

Zort70 said...

Well it gave me a chance to give Dennis's Fringe site a plug without it seeming to be completely out of place on a The Event website.

maven said...

Is it coincidence or fate? LOL I saw that Fringe glyph code at Dennis' site and thought the same thing, Zort!

(Thanks for the info on the quotes screwing up the comment icon.)

Zort70 said...

No problem Maven, it foxed me for a little while until I just guessed and tried it with single quotes.

SG_Tess said...

That's cool. I didn't know Dennis was still running the Fringe blog (should have) since I quit watching Fringe.

K said...

You must have stopped about the time I started watching. It's actually kind of good this season - I never really liked it much before.

Just Thinking said...

Fringe is my top must see show now- Lots of fun to watch the story and shout at Peter- "Come on- can't you see it's Altlivia?"

Zort70 said...

I hope you are all ready for the new episode tonight.

It is promising quite a bit so I hope it delivers.

maven said...

Getting in my The Event fix before I sail off to the Panama Canal! I'll be putting up the new post for tonight's episode in a few hours. This one looks like it just might be more discussion-worthy!


Dang...3 month hiatus? Who do they think we are...Lost fans?

SG_Tess said...

maven said...
Dang...3 month hiatus? Who do they think we are...Lost fans?lol

I hope the long hiatus doesn't kill the show.

maven said...

NEW POST! Doing it now because going out to dinner!
