This was kinda cryptic up until a couple seconds before, seeing as how many
different things it could have been. Then I was like, "Oh, duh." Another
moment where drama supersedes common sense.

A truly jaw dropping moment, even though I kinda knew/kinda hoped that was
the case, as the scene unfolded. Donna was fast asleep so there was no
irritated reaction from her. ;)
I'll have to rewatch the scene with Wendy, as the only thing that jumped out
at me was how much her hands were shaking. That's never a good sign.
So I was wrong about the opening scene in the first episode being in context
here, which only means that it will show up elsewhere.
Lee was mostly on target, though, I wonder what's the significance of the
Mohawk dude was not nearly the bad ass I was lead to believe. And Maggie is
better than she thinks she is.
I don't know but I thought there was going to be something creepy in the
scene between Junior and Michelle, or maybe I was just projecting. ;)
I predict that the series will shift back to Japan, at least temporarily,
and there will be a mushy reunion between Anita and Hisami.
Maybe Episode 14 will clear things up, but, I still have no clear idea what
Joker/Mr. Carpenter is after. And I'll have to double check, but I wonder if
that ring was something he wore at the British Library.
