The humans actions are just as scary as any hubots have been

This week's episode opens with the aftermath of the disturbing and devilish destruction caused by the Real Humans Liberation Front. Roger (Leif Andrée) and Malte's (Jimmy Lindström) plotting finally evolved into reality as they created a major explosion at the entrance of the Hubot Market leaving devastation in their wake. While they carried out their plan with great success, the trio of Roger, Malte and Bea (Marie Robertson) hits a few hiccups this week when secrets are discovered and manipulation comes into play. Bea has become a far more interesting and intriguing character than she started out, the way her character has progressed and developed has been a very nice and unexpected surprise.

Leo (Andreas Wilson) is well on his way to locating Mimi (Lisette Pagler) after uncovering the information he needed after confronting Jonas (Måns Nathanaelson) at the Hubot Market. However, after becoming collateral damage in the attack orchestrated by the Liberation Front, he is in no state to fight on and reunite with Mimi. Circumstances only get worse for Leo when he can't carry on anymore and is left in a very vulnerable position to be discovered by the authorities that are determined to detain him. We find out even more still this week about his childhood in a rather emotional and shocking flashback. I feel like everyone must be pulling for Leo just as much as I am, desperately wanting him to find the woman he can't live without.

On the other hand, Vera (Anki Larsson), a woman Lennart (Sten Elfström) was determined to live without, comes in handier than he'd ever thought. She proves her worth this week when an unexpected situation occurs and even he can't deny his appreciation for her presence. Lennart also makes a new friend this week which I was thrilled about. This sweet old man deserves a bit of human connection and companionship and I'm hoping he's found it without too many hitches.

Speaking of hitches, Niska (Eva Röse) and her group of rogue hubots encounter a few. Their stay in the attic at the vicarage is wearing thin on Åsa's (Sofia Bach) partner Eva (Ellen Mattsson), only made worse when she has a run in with Flash (Josephine Alhanko). It seems as though there is a difference of opinion when it comes to Åsa and Eva's lifestyle which understandably rubs Eva the wrong way. While Niska does try to remedy the situation, by the end of it her trust and tolerance of the hospitable couple comes into question. Niska has always put the fear in me and after this episode it is no different.

We get a nice dose of revelations this week, Real Humans continuing to draw me in and have me hanging out for the next episode.
