RADIO: Manhattan says, "{hzzznt} — examining the classic New Testament tale of the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse. For those reading along, we'll be examining Book of Revelations 6:1 - 6:8. With me is internationally renowned biblical scholar Harold Dupris, author of "Are we living in the Rapture: God and the Evolved.""
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Harold, in your book you claim that the SLC-Expressive are an unambiguous sign of intelligent design. Before we get into discussion of the Four Horsemen, can you explain a little about what you mean in your book? How are the SLC-Expressive evidence of intelligent design?"
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Well, I mean — when we're looking at people with supernatural abilities I see god's hand everywhere. As someone who pursues where science and faith intersect, I'll pose you a question. What evolutionary imperative would the ability to change the flavor of food present?"
RADIO: Manhattan says, "That's a fascinating question. I'm not sure I know the answer."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "I say it serves no purpose. Most abilities serve no real "evolutionary" purpose, even academics in purely secular fields agree. There is little biological imperative for these powers."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "The child of a person who manipulates fire and a person who manipulates ice is equally likely to have an unrelated ability. But how is this chosen? An atheist might say chance."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "And you think it's God? I've heard others who've said quite the opposite, in fact."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "I know this may seem strange, but I don't believe in the devil as an equal force to God. But I do see His hand in the seeming random chance of how and where abilities manifest."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Food for thought, very fascinating. We'll be discussing more about Harold's book on Thursday's episode of In His Design. But, Harold, why don't we switch gears a bit and move to today's topic: the four horsemen of the apocalypse?"
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Oh yes, absolutely. Absolutely."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "So, when we think of the Horsemen of the apocalypse, we think of them as physical beings. But in the Bible they're meant more as a metaphor, a representation of mankind's capability for cruelty on itself."

  • So, initially I figured that the use of La Mer was to warn against the flood - and maybe it still is? - but now I'm beginning to wonder if it's because it's a specific song that means a specific thing to a specific someone. Maybe like one of Rupe's triggers? Or maybe it just has significance to someone and it's the signal that, hey, this is important. Pay attention.
    • My question is: would Beyond The Sea work just as well?
      • I have my doubts
    • I'm not sure which other characters have any significant connection to this song, but I can say the Nichols sisters have it buried deep in their history - Nicole would sing it to Colette; it's her first memory (Would Have)
    • While the Mallett Device was active, the room above could hear La Mer as the portal/distortion opened to send Cardinalternate's broadcast. In the chamber below, where they could hear none of that, Nicole was singing the song at the exact same moment in an attempt to calm Colette (Ouroboros, Part IV, Ouroboros, Part III)

  • Okay. So, this happened. Based on what we've read from the whatisprojecticarus.com page, Mohinder and Erica Kravid are colleagues at the San Francisco Institute facility. According to what I've read in the e-mail archives, when Natazhat and the Arcology went dark, San Fran scrambled, evacuating everyone and scattering to the winds. They have safehouses established somewhere. So, they're hiding out from Wolfhound.
  • Looking Glass was a project of the SF Institute. Kravid says they lost Ruiz, which could imply that he was with them? But I believe the Ruiz we've seen at the Ark was definitely not. I posit they were attempting to use his ability to try to go through the looking glass. That makes a whole lot of sense, knowing what I know from Odessa's review of Ruiz's file.

  • Gone? IDK why, but I instantly remembered a bottle rolling across the floor to smack Odessa in the head when she wound up in "Oz." This stuck out to me, because my money is on the speaker above being Woods, and the bottle rolling across the floor immediately preceded his own arrival. This is probably just the product of a lack of sleep, but it resonated to me, so I'm noting it. Go ahead and laugh, but know that I'll flip you off as hard as I can! (Monochrome Delirious, Part I)

RADIO: Manhattan says, "This doesn't leave the room. Are we clear?"
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Of course."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Seven of those dead men turned out to have ties back to the former administration. We noticed some suspicious financial activity. Money to Pure Earth cells in Wyoming."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Jesus Christ."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "It's an ongoing investigation. SESA stepped in, wants this laid wide open. We start putting war heroes in prison to protect dead terrorists… You're seeing how this goes."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "What's SESA's angle?"
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Preventing history from repeating itself. I'd wager."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "They're assigning an agent as oversight to Wolfhound, making sure they're not all off the reservation."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Who?"
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Exactly the agent we want. Past connection to several members, we could make a case that her judgment is compromised."

  • This would be Miss Robyn Quinn, I believe - who has applied for the role of Wolfhound oversight, but might be considered unsuitable due to prior ties to some of its members, and whose behaviour from the end of 2011 till the war crimes trials could certainly suggest someone who has been emotionally and mentally 'compromised' through trauma.
    • Definitely Robyn. The fact that she has the connections to many members of Wolfhound at all is enough to suggest that her judgement would be compromised, no matter what she uncovers

RADIO: Manhattan says, "We get the investigation shut down, sweep it under the rug. We come away clean. We do our fucking jobs."

  • What do they need to sweep under the rug?
    • Surely the murder of nine people by a 'war hero' is reason enough for a cover-up? Especially when tied to evidence that 7 of the dead were involved in he last administration and some or all had ties to anti-Evolved terrorism. It's not the kind of story to promote peaceful thoughts from either side's aggressive types.
      • I think this rabbit hole goes much deeper

  • Who's That Knocking at My Door, Annette Hanshaw

RADIO: Manhattan says, "{kssssshh}"
RADIO: Manhattan says, "{kssskh} — Hallo, meine Liebste."

  • "Hello, my love." (literally "favorite," but it's a term of endearment)
    • Okay, but like, hang the fuck on. The fact that we're conjugating to end in e… That generally denotes a feminine usage? (i.e. the person being spoken to is a woman.) Otherwise it should be "mein Liebster"

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Bist du… heute nach draußen gegangen?"

  • "Are you… going outside today?"

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Die luft ist hier so… so… sauber?"

  • "The air here is so… so… clean?"

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Ist es nicht?"

  • "You should."

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Geh nach… draußen."

  • "Go… outside."

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Wir werden dich… morgen töten?"

  • "We are going to kill you… tomorrow?"
  • Literally "tomorrow morning."

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Morgen töten."

  • "Tomorrow." (Could potentially also mean "in the morning" more specifically)

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Sei nicht so traurig, Mateo."

  • "Don't be so sad, Mateo."

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Niemand lebt für immer."

  • "No one lives forever."

RADIO: Manhattan says, "Nicht mal ich."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Nicht… mal ich."

  • "Not… even me."

RADIO: Manhattan says, "{*pop*}"

  • Okay, so, all of this happened. I feel like this is a reference to a series of Queens' comtitles:
    • Que desde el prncipio lo han traicionado, que ha sido condenado a muerte, porque ya lo daban por muerto
      • From the beginning they had betrayed him, who has been sentenced to death, because they already considered him dead
    • Obviously that's just a gut feeling because there appears to be a death sentence of some sort here
  • As to who the speaker is… The address in the beginning is terribly familiar. You don't just call someone "your favorite" (or however you choose to translate that particular endearment) - unless you're being a sarcastic asshole, I suppose. Without cues of tone, it's hard to say
    • After re-thinking this, I think we're looking at a conversation between a man and a woman - the man being Mateo Ruiz, presumably. Without clues to determine who's speaking what lines in this exchange - and it is possible this is all one speaker having a one-sided conversation, but I doubt it - it's hard for me to determine the correct context regarding who is the condemned
  • Also this grammar is… off. Like in a different way than the Japanese was off, to my ears. Either the speakers are a little clunky… or this can be chalked up to Google Translate (or its ilk). Most of it is like the differences between when to use 'who' and 'whom,' so it's negligible. Not like the obvious choices in phrasing from Eyes of Sun and Moon
    • I take it back. There is something significant here. The speaker is using "du" and "dich" instead of "Sie" to refer to the other. When you're speaking to an authority in German, generally you'd use "Sie" to address. If you're speaking to someone you're very familiar with, it's "du." So, the speakers are close enough that the formality isn't necessary. Couple that with the endearment…

RADIO: Manhattan says, "{sssskkn}"
RADIO: Manhattan says, "{kzzzn} —Oh c'est, um, c'est— tes yeux… son—sont? Sont comme la lumiere des… etoiles?"

  • "Oh, it's, um, it's— your eyes… a—are? Are like the light of… stars?" (the lyrics above?)
    • Again, an 'intimate' version of you/your: "vos" would be formal or for addressing multiple people; "tes" is for someone the speaker knows well. Of course, this could just be a translation of the tone of the love song, but the speaker seems very hesitant and might well default to addressing their audience.

RADIO: Manhattan says, "That's— not terrible? But you're getting better, mon chou."

  • "Mon chou" is literally "my cabbage," but it's like calling someone "sweetheart" or "poppet"

RADIO: Manhattan says, "If you keep calling me that, I'm going to start calling you my donut."
RADIO: Manhattan says, "Tu n'oserais pas!"

  • "You would not dare!"
    • "Tu" here is unequivocally informal/intimate.

  • As I suspected, the fluent French speaker should be Adrienne Allen - my suspicion would have been that she's talking to Donna Dunlap, but this exchange has me thinking otherwise. So, if not Donna, then who? Could be Lauren Gilmore, as there appears to be an Institute connection and the attacker refers to the speakers as "Ladies." I sincerely doubt it's Kravid. And who is Don?

  • The song choice here is important. Reading through Children of Ghosts indicates strongly that the Conduits do not hold actual 'souls', they don't carry the true essence of past hosts - they hold /copies/ of them. Deckard, for instance, spoke like Francois now and then when the White Conduit was in him - while Francois was quite alive. There's no actual transfer of consciousness. Which means that by the time the Black Conduit was in Peter, Kazimir was just a copy of a copy of a

  • This whole thing was prompted by Manny MAVing to the Radio channel, then responding to the amusement that generated!
  • What I'm reading here is that Doyle and Odessa had a happy ending in the Flood future and right now I can't even.
    • I'm not entirely convinced they aren't just besties. But I also recall they have rather explosive tempers and could see them clashing as long term partners, ngl. lol But the fact that they have a connection at all is a happy ending, regardless of what shape their relationship takes
    • Besties is still a happy ending for them!

  • Too soon, dude (Quietus I)
  • This wasn't even spoken… it was telepathically said, guys! So does that mean this machine is somehow punching through the fabric of space and time; recording memories of the past? A telepathic machine. What?! (yeah…IDK… just been thinking about this all night.) Either way it is a scary machine.
  • On this thread of thought: Brains and Radiowave So.. this machine could be latching on to the electromagnetic waves of our brains… rather then just the radiowaves we put into the air… and or both.

RADIO: Dessa says, "Well. That was stupid. I'm obviously not dead."

  • I thought you were having dreams, Dessa. Should this really be a shock to you?
    • Wait… Are you dreaming of Odessa and not Fauxdessa?
      • She can't be. I know my girl, and since I haven't written a single fucking line for her in these exchanges, Manhattan knows her, too. If Floodessa saw Viressa die, at Edward's hands, who she would fucking recognize, she would be way more rattled here. Odessa's a survivor. Anything that threatens that survival freaks her out. Although her intense curiosity would keep her close to this device, whatever it is. She would absolutely risk herself for the sake of satisfying her need to know. If she'd had this dream, and told Don about it, neither of them would be puzzled by the interaction they heard between Edward and Ruiz. So, which Odessa is Floodessa dreaming of? Prime? Bright? Wasteland?

RADIO: Don {weary, muffled sigh}

  • Virus? Or Flood? There's reference to billions being dead, which could denote the Virus wiping out 95% of the population. It could also refer to the drowning of the world. This can be further supported by the notion of committing the remains of Sharrow's daughter to the deep. I'm still leaning toward Virus, though.

  • This… I don't think this is Odessa at all. Even an alternate timeline. I could be wrong, but I don't think the timing is good.
    • After having a little more time to think about this, I think Doctor Price is one of Odessa's parents. Or "parents." She might be named Price for the doctor in the same way she was named Knutson for the nurse that took care of her - a nurse she doesn't actually remember. Additionally, any other time Odessa has spoken in these broadcasts, she's been identified by her first name. I assume this is because we would recognize her voice.
      • Also, I don't feel like I wrote this, so. Take that for what it's worth, I guess.
  • I think the Victoria being referenced is Victoria Pratt, one of the Company Founders and engineer of Strain 138, capable of wiping out 93% of the population.
    • So, does that make this a Company experiment, then? Early Formula trials? With the mention of Mr. Deveaux, presumably Charles…

  • If this whole thing was Bright, then that first section is super disconcerting. Because it not only implies that Bridessa has some childhood memories that Odessa Prime does not, but also that they were altered somehow after that point. Bright timeline Odessa is "no closer to knowing her origins than she was ten years previous, something she has reconciled with over the years." So, what the actual is going on here? (Odessa)
  • Alternative theory: That isn't Odessa that's being spoken to at all in the first section, but Kara, since we know Kara was at the Pinehearst facility when shit hit the fan. And just what is Odessa's connection to Kara to cause that reaction? (Effect and Cause)

RADIO: Pierce: "You've got like, an hour. Maybe two, tops."
RADIO: «Then we will work together.»

  • Rebel? Is that you?

RADIO: Pierce: "Whatever."
RADIO: «We are watching. We are warning.»
RADIO: Pierce: "…Right. Just— don't let this turn into a massacre."
RADIO: «We cannot make that promise.»
RADIO: Pierce: "Wh—"
RADIO: «But it will not be the massacre you fear.»

  • Oh no. Rebel no. No no no no no…. Pierce asked for the Institute in Boston to be safe. For the Ark to be safe. That's all he asked for… monkey's paw, Pierce.
  • And in the aftermath… the sun will rise.

RADIO: 'Till the landslide brought me down
RADIO: {Oh hey, didn't expect to see you so early. How'd the work on the roof go?}
RADIO: {Hey Dan. Not bad, I got the tarpaper up. Figured I'd pick up the shingles today, since it's going to be nice all week.}
RADIO: {You know… and it ain't like I'm trying to intrude or nothin', but… You do know there's a lot of vacant houses in town, right? I'm sure you could work something out to move in to one.}
RADIO: {Yeah. Yeah, I know. It's just… I'm not much of a people person.}
RADIO: Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
RADIO: Can the child within my heart rise above?

RADIO: {Hey! Long time no see. Where've you been?}
RADIO: {I hiked west for a few weeks, went camping by myself. Found a small community of people out by Missoula. Nice people.}
RADIO: {You went into the Dead Zone by yourself? Are you outta' your mind?}
RADIO: {It's not that bad, Dan. Really, it's just quiet. There's no noise, no people for hundreds of miles. It's really peaceful.}

RADIO: {What?}
RADIO: {Yeah, I'm headed west. I think I'm going to move out into the Dead Zone permanently.}
RADIO: {Woah, hey. Hey come on that's nuts!}
RADIO: {It's really not. Being out there, alone, it's the happiest I've been in a long time. I think… I think it's really just better for everyone if I stay away from people.}
RADIO: {You've got friends here. I'm worried about you.}

RADIO: And I'm getting older too
RADIO: Oh, I'm getting older too
RADIO: {Survivor. Yeah. Look… I know who you really are, and I ain't said anything to anybody. I recognized your face the first day you came in to town. But I know… I know what it's like to just want to get away, t'have a fresh start.}
RADIO: {…I didn't… Thanks, Dan. For… keeping my secret. But that's part of why I want to get moving on too. Eventually, some day, someone's going to recognize me and tell someone else. I don't need that. The world doesn't need that.}
RADIO: Oh, take my love, take it down
RADIO: Oh, climb a mountain and turn around
RADIO: And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
RADIO: Well the landslide will bring it down
RADIO: {I get that… I do. But, don't you have family somewhere, who'd want to know you're ok?}
RADIO: And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
RADIO: {I do. But for them… it's best if I stay a memory. Good or bad.}
RADIO: Well the landslide will bring it down, oh oh

RADIO: Look, I… this isn't a good idea. I've been over this. We don't know what this will do! We can't just… we can't build this off of half a blueprint and guess-work!
RADIO: You're free to tell Pete and the Director that, then. If you're feeling so suicidal.
RADIO: Erica. Listen to fucking reason. We don't even know what we're building.
RADIO: The Director does. So unless Mr. Cardinal finds our missing jar of pennies… I best hope you remember how to put that fucking machine together.

RADIO: Pete: I am! I am! I am the most competent! I am — I am so — it's Kravid! She's — she's insubordinate!

RADIO: Director: Just — talk. For god's sake.
RADIO: Pete: Uh — well it's — the stabilization tests we had going with Varlane? We think we might have found a baseline in Erica's daughter.
RADIO: Director: Mnhmm…
RADIO: Pete: She was put through the Gemini process more than a year ago and we've been giving her stem cell treatment from the most recent clone, and it's been keeping her mitochondrial DNA from breaking down like the others.
RADIO: Pete: We're not experiencing the same rate of unraveling.
RADIO: Director: Do you know how Gilmore is holding up in captivity?
RADIO: Pete: No, but she can't… I mean she's got to be feeling it now. It won't be long before she's cherry cobbler.
RADIO: Director: Do you have to call it that? Seriously?

RADIO: Director: Stunning. How long do you think before you have enough data points to go on?
RADIO: Pete: A couple of months? Maybe less, depending on how hard I crack the whip.
RADIO: Director: That's acceptable. I'd like to have Gemini up and running by the end of the year so as to incentivize things going forward.
RADIO: Pete: I've been meaning to ask, has Crito been a problem? I noticed one of our shipments was a month late.
RADIO: Director: You let me worry about Crito.
