  • Tech and Plans

    As soon as Peter put the device from the observers in his head (good twist/nice move) it became clear to me that he could then be empowered to read the equations and computations that Walter said were so difficult... (maybe read minds?)

    I also started to wonder about the motivations of September (and his origins) and concluded that there may be a direct relationship but certainly there is evidence that Watcher Tech does not render a person an emotionless "watcher" - these guys have some comprehension of what they have lost and feel stultified by the humans that draw strength from their emotions (and the weaknesses they seek to exploit).

    Walter with his "out of the box" ingeniousness, Olivier with her depth of charcter and cotesciphan enhancements and now Peter with his genius enhanced - backed by Anna's slog and Broiles as an "inside man" - might just stand a chance...
