It’s no secret that I have a lot of time for Walternate. While I don’t always agree with his methods, I see a man who has become a victim of his own broken heart and sense of injustice. Yep, I said it – a man who is a victim. Of course, when you’re dealing with entangled webs, a victim can just as easily be seen as an aggressor, depending on how the yarn spun.
Subject 13 went some way to balancing out the perspective from which the story is told. Not only in terms of Olivia and Peter, but Walter and Walternate. I personally found myself becoming even more sympathetic towards Walternate, as I traced the impact that hopelessness and hope had on a man falling apart at the seams.
But what about you – did Subject 13 give you a W-alternate perspective on the “Safety Czar”? Feel free to add your vote in the poll below.
