I gotta say, even when all signs point to him being defeated, the fact that Tom has remained so incredibly calm is massively more imposing than him dropping the calm act, and going berserk. The fact that he's so calm, yet still such a violent player. I think makes him a better antagonist.
That's just my two cents though. Eventually, when he does snap and get PISSED, it'll be even more impactful because we'll know it's not even close to easy to get him mad.
My second favourite part of the episode was the whole escape pod sequence. That PING is gonna be hilarious
Next page we finally get to the final chorus to Stronger Than You.
