Hahah, I couldn't agree more c:
What are they doing? What are they planning? When will they show us?
I know right?
I'm sorry I still can't quite get over the fat that this was more heart wrenching than 90% of the professional media I have seen this year.
Also mam I the only one who thinks it's a quasi-concurrent series to SOI? I still can't help feeling we've never actually been looking at either the original Xephos OR honeydew. I mean they said 'master clone'. Not 'master original version'. I reckon these guys came from the labs in the Sands, they're not the original duo (to be honest that's the only way I can make the 'tone' of the series make sense narratively. Until Lewis outright said it was all one place I always assumed that :
a) SOI, Tekkit, Moonquest and all the other series such as Blackrock and Duncan's Lab, were all one primary universe whereas
b) Yoglabs, Volts (maybe Sjin's farm? That cones up in the air a bit) etc were another timeline altogether.
I dunno though. I guess people can change, and they could've become the kind of people they were in Yoglabs while still being the original Xephos and Honeydew (man, I'm thinking about this more than Dr Who. DR WHO.)
It's best not to apply logic to Who. As for these theories, it's a lot of fun to speculate on what is actually going on. Either way, I think we can all agree that Yoglabs is crazily evil and corrupt, and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if one of these days they turn around or go into a new room and see Israphel standing there shooting at them or using their crazy high-tech gear to take over the Labs.
Either way, I feel like we've kind of been watching Shadow of Israphel the whole time, even though it wasn't scripted and Israphel wasn't there.
I hesitate to call them outright evil for the same reason I am reluctant to call say, Torchwood, or anybody really who is human and has ulterior motives, evil. Seriously corrupt though? Ohohohoh hell yeah. Very very much so, wehatever goals they have have been lost under the actions they've committed. It's fascinating to think about how such things might play out (in my head I like the idea of real!Xephos coming face to face with the clone who runs the lab and being all bewildered and shocked and "oh my Notch, how could you DO those things?" whereas the clone is like"mate, seriously, I'm you there's nothing I've done here which is beyond the realms of your own capacity for barbarism, given the proper motivation, deal B|." (Evul sunglasses optional)
Agreed, it's always bee n there (no wonder they get annoyed by people asking, they've been working hard on it the whole time!)
(Also I admit I accidentally left this comment before seeing the episode, and now that I've seen it I've posted twelve different things about it on Tumblr)
(Man, deviantart needs to let you edit comments)
Also meaning... that the 'clone Xephos' might be real Xephos... and the Xephos left running... could be our pale faced man...
And then he also said that, if it's ever openly stated that SoI would not be coming back, he might make public the remainder of the script. So in either case there will be more of the original SoI in some form.
