Hasty decisions need to be made now
I was a little worried about how this episode 'Make Haste' would start for Roger and Malte. Roger in particular, has just begun to show us he can be caring and considerate.
Since Bea has declared her feelings for him, does he still maintain a connection to his ruthless side?
Malte looked set to ruin it all.
He entered the basement, broke down on the steps and placed a gun in his mouth, pulling the trigger. The 'rogues' stayed in hiding as Niska whipped in, confiscated the gun, handed it to Bea and faded back into the darkness.
He arrives home with flowers and Bea's proposal of love almost goes unnoticed when she exposes her secret. Somehow his shock wears off fast and he's accepting of her. Will her plan backfire?
When Malte awakes the next morning and sees her calmly charging he throws up. The rogues emerge from the basement. He freaks out again and makes a run for it. I suspect we won't be seeing Malte anymore, unless it's for a second warning.
Matilda is instructed to take a 'sickie' from work and go on a hunt for info on David Eischer and the rogue hubots. She discovers David died three months earlier from a suicide.
Finally, Inger gets to converse with Leo alone. The mystery is heating up here. In record time Leo gets straight to the crux of his mission to save Mimi. She needs more than just protection from back alley hooligans.
Inger tapes the vital discussion on her phone, leaves pronto to catch a taxi in the pouring rain and is bumped into by a man that steals it and her wallet. Unbeknown to her; information and address retrieved.
Time is rapidly running out to get Anita out of the house and safe.
Tobbe is distracted by his new friend Monika; is she a girl from school? He quickly forgets her name, calling her Monkey. Hans helps to correct him and slides some 'protection' across the table for after the movies.
Rick is completely liberated from his 'buy in the box' equivalent, testing his individuality at every turn. His original traits of being polite and helpful are hastily diminishing.
Therese and Pilar both feel that Rick and Bo are getting stranger by the minute. They decide to go on a girl's night out, without the guys of course and this angers Rick.
Met with resistance from the two hubots, they are switched off. This has its repercussions. At work the next day Rick is still sulking. He and Bo take off. Bo heads home, but Rick follows through on pursuing two girls.
