    Awesome work! I was reminded of a superb episode of Babylon 5 towards the end. Captain Sheridan is held prisoner by Earth’s tyrannical government.

Just when he thinks the execution is about to happen, the executioner removes his mask, revealing interrogator who begins the process all over again as if nothing has happened. It’s a chilling episode.
