Captain Tanaka: You may work for them, but you're not one of them. Don't talk to me like that in front of my people. You're ground-born, just like me. We're the same.
Oumou Prescott: Is that what you think? We're not the same, Captain. One of us is a powerless puppet being used by forces that can't quite be comprehended. And the other one is me.

The Best One Yet
18 April 2020 | by mostlyharmless-30728See all my reviews

This episode was far more comprehensible then previous ones. Almost every moment was enjoyable, and it was an opposite experience to the last two episodes (which were almost painful to watch); I was fully immersed in the story and sympathized with the characters (that last scene was just amazing).
