So, Casey seems like he might be trouble, huh?
Not that he’s done anything anti-Brianish at all, as yet. But there’s something a little too pointed about his conversation with Boyle – who’s also maybe not quite as 100% on board with Team Finch as I thought he was last week – about the source of Brian’s talents that makes me think Agent Rooks’s interest in our hero isn’t entirely benevolent. We’ll find out either way in due course, I suppose, but not this week since, rather than killing the mood with betrayal or double-crosses or any of that nastiness, this week’s Limitless focusses on serving up almost unmitigated sunshine instead.
The story revolves around a simple but completely marvellous idea: Brian assembles his own crack team of Bruntouchables in a bid to catch the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted in two weeks and earn his own “Headquarters!” in return. Why? Because “boring stuff happens in an office” and “cool stuff happens in headquarters,” of course. And because Brian is the best, and Limitless is tremendous, not even the “enemies of joy” can condemn this plan or indeed this ep which is just irrepressibly cheerful, clever, charming and all-round hilarious, much like our man himself. Yay!
