Seelies have the beauty of angels, and the viciousness of demons, and those opposing qualities make them unpredictable. A vampire or a werewolf, they prefer to attack you head on, but Seelies, they want to trick you into your own self-destruction.
Other than this actually being a somewhat Alex heavy episode, I loved watching Alex in his element. If this situation happened prior to 1x10, Alex would likely be a bumbling mess, quick to radio Holden and tell him, as well as himself, that he couldn’t do this. But Alex has evolved, both as a person and as a pilot. He’s accepted the parts of himself that he’s locked away – the need for excitement, the thrill of adrenaline racing through his veins, the feeling of his heart pounding against his chest- Alex belongs in the thick of things, not standing in the peripheral. Watching Alex embrace himself, while simultaneously showing how intelligent he is, let me tell you, it was something to behold!
