Lt. Fredericks is not one of my favorite characters, she's kinda blocky and not well developed but this episode has give me adeeper look into her. It was contirived around an important UEO moment and has all this season's major players involved. I especially loved the part where Henderson and Ford sublety get it on in the board room. This is confirmed when Hudson notices that Ford's unifrom is untucked in the back and points it out to Ford.
Unfortunately most of the episode drags on and on to the point where it passes dull and heads towards snoozefest. Even Darwin's little speach seems contrived to take up time.
The fact that this episode airs after Brody has died is confusing too. If you want to paint the man as a hero it should have been done while he was alive. This episode is a prime example of how this show could've worked but didn't anymore.
