"Lockdown" Season 2, Episode 12

I have no clue where to start. I am still trying to process this episode in my head, so my thoughts are going to be brief, but hopefully structured. I am guessing that Jessi is already missing when the episode starts, and the Tragers have already been told. It seems that Jessi has had a complete mental breakdown and ran away. I'm pretty certain that the treatments Madacorp did are at the root of Jessi's loss of her grasp on reality. Nicole, being the protective mother, decides to lock down the kids and keep them in the house. As a result, Declan, Amanda, Andy and Hilary all come over to see various members of the family. Hilary and Lori are trying to figure out the perfect way of getting even with Jessi, while Andy and Josh are just hanging out, playing games and growing closer. Declan comes over to talk to Kyle, and Kyle seems like he's in a dream state. Kyle is starting to realize that all the problems he is seeing with the people he loves are a result of Jessi. The majority of the episode revolves around Kyle having a conversation with Adam/himself and Jessi. Kyle seems to be conflicted over whether he should help Jessi. It turns out that Kyle already knows all the answers, but he just doesn't realize it. He needs his subconscious mind (Adam) to help him process all the things he knows. Kyle ultimately decides that he needs to go find Jessi and see if he can help her. So where does he start? At the beginning, in the woods by Zzyzx. But they seem to end up in the woods by Adam's house. How does Jessi get there if she's never been there before? Why did Adam live so close to the Zzyzx facility yet they did not know about him? Why is Jessi at the tree stump that Kyle stood on in the first season, when he tried to get back to his spaceship? I guess Kyle is acting a lot like the rest of us do when we try to work things out and have a conversation with ourselves. Nicole realizes something about Kyle and Jessi while she is reviewing his notes. But what does she realize? I know she asked Kyle's permission to tell Steven. What did Kyle share with her that she now thinks is so important to tell Steven? And how does that relate to Jessi? Meanwhile, Steven discovers the secret of the device he built, and that they want to use it on Kyle. He also discovers Foss. Also, Hilary tries to play Dr Phil to Lori and Declan and get them back together. What was that reference to Heroes all about? How does that tie in, besides referencing a pop-culture phenomenon? What do you guys think? And don't forget, there's a Season 2 marathon airing on Labor Day leading up to the final episode. show less
