  • Apparently she and Juliette start emailing each other, though that may not be the reason she returns to Portland

  • I think she is coming back to work with the captain. She figured out that he’s colluding with the revolutionaries, and is trying to figure out what side she should take in this battle.

  • Did they ever explain what the key was for? The captain was all about it in season 1 and I can’t remember if they said what it did. Didn’t all the rings together make a map?

  • I was never totally convinced she is nicks mother. She could be the other woman who was supposedly killed in the car wreck with his father. Nick didnt seem to recognize her right away.
