Loved every minute of it!

I totally called that Hunter would hire Molotov, and that 'precogs' are in the episode. Who knows how long O.S.I. will remain the highest payer. The investors seem very loyal to the Guild, killing Monstroso to protect them. Learning Bowie isn't the Sovereign is cool. Hank's muscles atrophying was GREAT.

I have GOT to watch this one again immediately (on my DVR)!!!!

Not sure the Investors even are Guild though, at this point- they seem to have some sort of darker purpose.

Yeah. They seem to make deals. Trades. And they come to collect. Monstroso received the heart from King Gorilla--who traded freedom for it. Monstroso never really indicated what he paid for his heart--perhaps he still "owed."

Perhaps Doc and Jackson do not know what to do with them yet!

Nice explanation of the "You killed my father!" "After you killed my partner" story. Still waiting on the eye. . . .

Though a great use of the eye- hiding a tranq dart in the empty socket.

In Pomp and Circuitry they are on the stage when Dr. impossible gets there and are referred to as "our friends from General Consolidated Insurance", so I'm pretty sure they are the Guild.. Possibly their right hand men.. It would make sense for them to infiltrate the guild now that their sole mission is to take down the guild.

Wasn't the explanation that Monstroso gave them access to Guild monies? Maybe they decided to bump him off because he was no more use to them. Or maybe they saved him off-camera to use him again.

He's a big guy, and there are tons of ways he could survive- Impossi-Car pickup (which would mean a new Revenge Society member), a giant mattress (why not), tractor beam (from Gargantua-2 or whomever). The point is, I want to see a broken and bleeding body before we count Monstroso out.

They could just be using the Guild as a front. They've probably impersonated Guild officers as well, and there's so many secret societies/leaders in the Guild that nobody questions it.

If you asked me, I would have hated the idea of the Sovereign not actually being Bowie.

But the shapeshifter idea combined with the sudden treatment of that idea being as ridiculous as it was, is hilarious.

That means that Bowie's got some connection to the Sovereign, though. He may even be one of the 13, which now that I think of it, leaves many questions. Who picks council members? How do they know when to meet via telescreen? Is there an order of seniority, in case of abstention in voting? Probably get some of those answed in Bot Seeks Bot.

Just re-watched. Didn't find anything new, but I DO wonder what will come of all the O.S.I. secret files that The Investors have stolen. At least The Investors think Molotov is dead.

Nah, they know too much to believe any of that. They probably just wanted to see what everyone was going to say, make sure no sensitive info gets released.

Oh I agree that that was priority #1. It's the secondary stuff I'm talking about.

I doubt the files are of much use to them- they knew everything that happened because they were there. It just looks more official to take papers with you when you leave a debriefing. Hunter probably gave the real Misters a copy of everything as well.

Thoooooouuuuuggggghhhh . . . if the Sovereign is not really Bowie . . . then why would he make Watch and Ward contact Iman when he went out in search of Phantom Limb?

Perhaps there is a problem with having Bowie as a "real character." Say if someone wants to make a "Sovereign Doll" . . . sorry . . . "Action Figure." Well, technically, it is Bowie and "his people" may not grant permission.

Probably over-thinking this.

Maybe he lives with the real Bowie, or had plans with him? After all it sounded like Bowie's fond of him, whomever he is, putting him on the covers of Diamond Dogs and Pin Ups. So I guess they have some kind of actual business relationship, and are probably in touch regularly.

And now I'm over-thinking this too.

That's along the line I was thinking too, maybe the Sovereign and Bowie just share a life, or perhaps the Sovereign replaced the real Bowie at some point in the past.

Since the file and debriefing they gave Mr. Frost, etc was designed to blow smoke in the eyes of Washington, I doubt that the Investors got much of any OSI secrets/
