I think AJ made a lot more decisions this time. Which isn't saying much - last time she basically stayed in a corner/at the bar angsting/crapping herself with fear any time anyone even vaguely military looking even looked in her general direction.
Highlights for me were:
AJ seeing Flora again. Thanks everyone who kept that a secret from me (still not sure why I was worth the effort though, but thanks anyway ) - the reaction was definitely one of "I didn't think I'd see you again" which I think was hoped for.
Being dragged up into the hotel room by Mel's character for apparently what was a town meeting, and being really, really confused as to why I was there for quite some time, until the Docmayor started talking about a certain position for AJ. That moment of "ohhhhh" as a lightbulb went on in AJ's head.
There was a really great conversation with JJ, Travis, and Eric at the bar, all of which I was finding absolutely hilarious and difficult to not crack up OOC. Wasn't sure I'd ever see Eric blush or try so hard to get out of the conversation ;D
I think the Stupidest Moment in AJ's Life award would be stepping in front of Sosa's shield, right between him and the Clement Republic Major's gun. Resulted in a situation where everyone was pointing guns at each other and AJ got shot in the shoulder. That was so tense, I loved every minute of that (AJ most definitely didn't though )
Telling James who AJ really was, and him apparently not believing her for a while. That was great, thanks Chris
A moment of clarity when AJ realised what she needed/wanted to try do to get certain people out of a slightly sticky situation. Genuinely selfish reasons at first, and then they slowly grew into "I hope I'm helping and doing the right thing, and that I don't make things worse for them."
The conversation with the Docmayor in the quarantine area was so atmospheric, it was awesome.
Any interaction with Grace - Thanks Sarah! Grace is cool
Realising how important a certain few people actually are to AJ.
And when Sister Dearest actually asked AJ what she wanted to do. That was really, really lovely. I mean, sure, AJ was a teeny bit loopy on morphine and booze, but she asked for a ceasefire
