Praise Lilith, Adam, Eve, and our new best friend, The Smoke Monster. Russell Edgington is a free man!
This blood-thirsty vampire blew our minds when he delivered the True Death to Roman (Nooooooo, Agent Stableeeeeeer!), but wait. Wasn't he locked up in silver with an iStake attached to his heart?
Either Russell has supernatural Houdini powers, or someone within The Authority was helping him. We have our eye on Salome, and here's why:
1) She was visibly upset when Roman announced that Russell was going to be executed.
2) She told Nora about the execution for no apparent reason, and Nora's reaction made it seem like there was a plan afoot.
3) She didn't make a move to help Roman when Russell attacked him.
4) She's high up enough in The Authority that she could have secretly deactivated Russell's iStake.
What do you think, Truebies: Did Salome betray Roman by releasing Russell, or is The Authority's traitor someone else entirely?
Personally, we're just traumatized that Stabs only showed up shirtless once. What a waste of a washboard.
