And I thought the prison reveal was going to be exciting.
There are so many tricks up the sleeves of the Counterpart team; it's impossible to guess what's in store for the group of spies trying to keep tabs on different worlds.
"Our" Howard, Howard Alpha, will become a huge disappoint to me, personally, if he doesn't get a fire lit under his behind while inside of Echo. He didn't quite understand what "being a spy" meant before Counterpart Season 2 Episode 3, and he's only scraping the surface on his first day with the locals.
Echo wasn't as expected. The way it sounded, he was going into hell.
For those who have been there years on end as nothing but an encyclopedic knowledge of their counterparts, it probably seems like hell.
Having worked in Strategy, even in a lowly occupation like Howard A's, he knew a lot of the faces housed in the facility. He was kind of confused, though, as he called out to Marcel expecting the other to know him, not recalling he doesn't know Echo's Marcel at all.
The most exciting reveal from Echo was Peter Quayle Prime.
Peter Prime was equally as excited to meet Howard Alpha because Peter has delusions of grandeur. I'd never call Peter Alpha a genius, but Peter Prime fall off the turnip truck half-baked.

At some point, Management must have decided it was better to use him for his knowledge of Peter Alpha's innermost thoughts and patterns of behavior rather than to risk sending a less-than-stellar mind over the crossing to take his place.
Howard A: Why are you in here?
Peter Quayle P: I'm serving my world in the fight against yours. Yanek says I'm one of the most important people here. I suppose now we know why.
Howard A: Yanek?
Peter P: Yeah. I give him secrets, my secrets, things about my life, things I'm afraid of, things that only I can know. So now Management knows my other's secrets.

Added: December 22, 2018 He's almost childlike in how proud he is to be of service to his world even if it means he has no life of his own. While everyone else seems noticeably upset to be imprisoned for such reasons, Peter P flaunts his other's high position and his counter-importance inside Echo as a way to get the best chair in front of the TV.
It's through Peter P, though, that Howard gets the lay of the land. Yanek didn't sound so bad coming from Peter P, and despite his role at the prison, his dialogue with Howard wasn't all that bad, either.
Yanek's role is normally to extract information about his captives. He seems decent because he has to be. He's working with people from his world. They may be captive, but they should be sold a bill of goods that says they're role is just as crucial to the cause as those sent across from the..
