And so, Zola dies. And I really like the complexity of this character. He DID love Jet, and he did save her life and kinda accepted her wishes at the end...but he also still thinks his plan of implanting himself on every living creature on earth is a great idea and a giant gift to her. His dying words are both on accepting her...and telling her to finish his plan.

A compassion he didn't have for Ian/Leopold. And since Jet was nearby, she probably heard what happened, and what he  thought about his son. Technically, Jet must be completely broken by now...but she did not show any other emotions than anger and conviction up to now, laving to her switching between Zola and Cap without really a phase of doubt. This still is a weakness in the script. It feels, the author had some great ideas, but had problems filling the gaps between them. It's a nice stories with some bothersome plotholes, weaknesses and a couple of tired tropes. But again: Mixed with some great stuff as well. I especially like Sharon in here, she's doing some stuff wrong from our perspective...but everything right from her. Why no one gets the idea "Maybe time flies differently here" is beyond me, but hearing all this stuff and thinking, Zola manipulated his mind is not a bad conclusion. In fact - it's even entirely possible! We only see everything from Caps perspective, and the story opened with him being experimented on from Zola. He could have been set loose with all these memories, meet Ian in the hallway, and his false memories make him drop his guard...of course we know, this isn't true in the end, but it's not Sharons fault she came to this conclusion. It's just bad timing.

Well...now they still have to defuse the Zola-Bomb...and I'm sure we'll meet Ian as part of the mutant goo again.
