Taking fashion tips from Faye Dunnaway ( in "Bonnie & Clyde''), Perinne Closterman ( in "Strike Witches") and the coup-de-grace The Doctor (from "Doctor Who") there.
All in all the episode was not half-bad. Though Miss 'Meltdowner' ( perfectly cast btw, it has been a real long time since Ami K played a 'baddie', one episode of "Persona IV' notwithstanding) MUST surely be thinking ''I'm surrounded by Chunni's" half the time, no wonder the fuse seems to be short.
I am a great fan of British Conspiracy thrillers and dramas and the series pacing is right in line with the best of them so far. One episode light, the next dark, with each scene offering an emotional counter-point to the next, so in my humble opinion I find the criticism of the so-called 'SOL' aspect to be somewhat unwarranted as you do need to take a breath when you are swimming in rough dramatic waters from time to time.
