I loved this episode. Aaron was magnificent in his confusion, fear and courage.
Aaron tried so hard to get his friends to accept the truth about what was happening. When he told them to snap out of it and snapped his fingers, Monroe’s expression made me laugh so hard I almost fell off the chair. His eyes are so expressive.
They were messing with my mind as much as they were confusing Aaron. I thought Aaron killed them; then I thought the electric power was returning; and then I just waited to see how it played out.
It wasn't as good as I was hoping. "Normal" just seemed "normal" now that I was expecting it, not special. And it wasn't even normal. All that violence and people chasing each other came back.
I was enjoying watching Aaron try to convince people what he said was true.
I didn't understand that computer code he was working on. I know what "recursive" means. I saw a tree and remembered we had one illustration where a tree calls another tree. It's the program calling itself, but with different information each time. It is a good way to get into an endless loop. In the programming languages I actually leanred, recursive means something totally different than it does in a language I tried to use without taking the course, since I was told don't learn a third high-level language. Low-level language is where it doesn't look like English but depends on the machine's structure.
It was naturally a big disappointment when they returned to that other world.
