In which there are cliffhangers.
When the delivery date on his military contract is moved up, Daniel tells Phillomon to wipe the chip and start mass producing the robots. Zoe-A begs Lacy to get her off-world, but Lacy cannot move fast enough, even with Barnabas' help.
Desperate, Zoe-A tells Phillomon the truth and asks for his help. When he sounds an alarm, Zoe-A slams him into a wall and kills him. She breaks out of the lab and drives away, pursued by the military. Plowing through a blockade, Zoe-A flips the van and explodes.
Lacy is horrified when she realizes that Barnabas has used her to plant a bomb detonator on Sister Clarice. (They have been arguing over who is in charge of the STO.) When she balks, he hands Lacy a cell phone and threatens that she must be the one to trigger the device - or he will shoot both her and Keon.
On her way to the airport so that she can fly to Gemanon and report on Barnabas, Clarice has Nestor pull over. She's spotted a woman about to jump off the bridge in front of them.
It is Amanda Graystone, finally giving into her madness and despair.
I fear I'm not quite as engaged with Amanda as some of the others. There is an energy to Zoe and Tamara that is a bit lacking in watching Amanda mope around and fidget.
In my opinion, there needed to be another episode between "Ghost in Machine" and "End of the Line." We had the beginnings of both Amanda and Joseph's descents, but missed the middle bit where they get worse and worse. Adama in particular seems to go from just starting to get hooked on Amp and V-world to being up to his eyeballs to the point that everyone is worried. It would have been better to see him miss William's Ink Day (whatever that is) than to just be told about it in passing.
Same with Amanda. Though we do have her great scenes with Clarice to play off of, I still would have rather seen her stew over Vergis' revelations for a little longer. And seeing Barnabas and Clarice go another round would have been great fun; maybe even work Keon into the mix? As I noticed above, he seems to be getting the short end of the character development stick.
On the flip side, we are clearly shown how incredibly it must suck to be Daniel here. Vergis may think he's trashing Graystone's life, but it's really just the culmination of an entire lifetime of crap decisions. Vergis hasn't had to actually do anything but watch.
And whoever thought to stick Polly Walker and James Marsters in a scene together gets a big hug. Love. Them.
While "End of the Line" doesn't quite hit the high notes, it leaves everyone in a place where I'm really really impatient to find out what happens next.
