I fully understand the no touchy the poopey ideology here - observing the subjects in a vacuum is almost always much more interesting.While the Russell and Alison saga was a wonderful read that I do revisit from time to time, it's a shame that the w.e.e.n. didn't heed mod warnings and almost immediately tried it again with a horribly weak plan.
But then we see Russ think, "well I'm not thrilled to share time with a black guy in a wheelchair, but at least we will be having a threesome with Katy Perry within two hours of meeting her".
It's like in movies when a cop looks up to see a vigilante overseeing the criminal and the murder weapon they left tied to a lamp post. The cop gives a begrudging head nod because he doesn't approve of their methods, and it's likely they can cause more harm than good, but they got you evidence you could have never imagined.
