Alternate timeline, I love it. What they did in the past did change their future. Reggie probably took a slightly different approach, I'm he was still an asshole. But it looks like he made Ben number 1 instead of Luther. Which is probably the better choice.
I'm interested in what he did with Vanya this time since he saw have a little control over her powers. Since we didn't see the others yet, I'm thinking some of them are different kids. Maybe Lila got picked up this time. He saw that some of them were less powerful than others. Five and Vanya being the only ones that impressed him.
I'm glad it was finally confirmed that Reggie is an alien. Although I was most surprised to find out that Grace was a real person and that Reggie did seem to care about her.
Kate Walsh obviously had a blast playing the Handler and wearing the most outlandish outfits.
However now I'm wondering how Team Zero found each other and all learned to use their to their fullest potential without Five's intervention? They looked like a real superhero team in the first episode. Klaus was bringing soldiers back from the dead with ghost Ben being able to use his powers.
