Vincent's welcome to the commune wears down rather quickly when the people notice that the frequency of drone patrols has increased since he arrived. For an angry mob, they're pretty tame. Sure they insist that he leaves, but they're pretty rational about it. It's implied that it would've gotten worse, but Hoody manages to save him by painting Vincent as some great revolutionary, even going so far as to refer to him as a chosen one.
Hoody, is of course, lying. He even puts forth the idea that he is in negotiations to get them all back into the city, but his "radio" is really just a music player. The ruse is elaborate enough that even Re-l mistakes it as a communications device so he clearly did a good job making it look like a communications array.
There is an amusing bit where Re-l is communicating with the doctor, but Hoody is talking and believes that her responses are to him, whereas she is really involved in a completely separate conversation. Not that it matters, Re-l seems to pick up on the fact that Hoody is full of it rather quickly. At least, that's what I gathered by the fact that she simply stared at him when he started going off about how he knew all about the Proxies.
While her desire to bring Vincent back makes sense, Re-l is oddly callous here. She's more than willing to let the commune die as long as her goals are met. She's even confused when Vincent voices disapproval over abandoning these people.
The matter is tabled when drones strike and Vincent gets injured. Re-l's suit is damaged, which would be a big dramatic thing except for the fact that people are clearly able to get along quite well outside. Yet, somehow, Re-l is affected by the outside atmosphere, weird. Over the course of these events, a Proxy shows up, confirming Re-l's suspicion that they are linked to Vincent. As he is unconscious, she is unable to glean any information from him before she follows suit.
I was pretty happy when it was revealed that Vincent does have normal eyes, but he keeps them closed for a majority of this episode. I know, I've harped on this before but it really makes no sense to me and it's really starting to become very jarring. Maybe it ties into the plot later on down the line, yeah that's it.
This episode was largely setting things up. The plot moves along fine enough, but it's pretty low key. There are some nice character moments to boot.
