Just can't say enough about Ms Plimpton's characterization of the 'bad' secret agent. Her portrayal leaves the 'thugs' chasing our heroes so far in the dust as to be 'non-characters' in the entire series.
Intellectual, apparently well-read in fields other than her 'specialty,' and possessed of a variety of atypical skills, Ms Plimpton gives us (IMHO)a very well-thought-out portrayal of a techno-thriller character whose motivations aren't all negative. (By the way: she also confirms [at least to me] that she's not a 'one trick pony' as an actor: she doesn't portray the same thing(s)in each character she plays.)
Perhaps the writers deserve a big chunk of the credit due her scenes: note how cleverly ambiguous most of her answers are to the questions posed to her. Is this really a 'government agency' given a clever nickname "The Corporation"?
Also intriguing are developments with Miles: if there's a genetic connection between him and Nimrod (apparently, the latter's saliva [or whatever passes for that in this creature] healed his wounds [as Ms Plimpton's character more or less confirmed]), what're Miles' yuppie parents gonna think? Who'll they sue?!!?
More to the point: what'll Miles do? Not often mentioned in the reviews of this show I've read, the societal impact of what this show proposes is, I think, quite germane. Sure: it's science fiction so it doesn't really count; however, the basics of the plot are current-events NON-fiction: gene-splicing/mixing/designing has been happening for some years, and 'mistakes' are always possible.
Another reason I like this show: it gives me interesting things to consider during the quiet times in my days.
