This was the episode that made me stop hating Alec... and I'll admit was really good for an Alec-centric and made even better by a very season one feel, and keeping everyone in character. ( And I of course was very happy to have a new reason to hate Sandoval)

But I feel they really missed a chance here at the end of the episode. Instead of just the whole ' Are you going to be alright/I'm always...' it would have been much more realistic- to have Max to try and talk to him about how that was what Manticore was, how it tried to make them not human- and for Alec to go off. Because Alec never ran from Manticore- it was burned down and there was nothing to say that if it set shop back up that he wouldn't go back.

I mean Alec, fanfiction wise is a great character to write for such as sad reason- they didn't expand him in moments like this and any kind of M/A scene just came out more brother and sister than anything else.

Otherwise, The Berrisford Agenda is one of those episodes like Hit A Sista Back and Female Trouble. It once again shows that to Manticore- they weren't people to those people. And it showed Alec having to begin to confront what Manticore really was and as I said, it's a tragedy they didn't take it further.
