Why is the Major spending so much time with Saanvi?
Speaking of time that no one seems to have enough of, how does the Major have all the time in the world to work on prying information out of Saanvi. In the closing moments of this episode, she finally tells the good doctor she's going to have to let her go as a patient since Saanvi won't open up fully to her. The ploy works as Saanvi begins to reveal what happened to Flight 828.
But we've already jumped ahead two months, which means the Major has been playing an incredibly long and patient game with Saanvi if she allowed it go to this long before Saanvi even began to open up about the flight. Now, the floodgates might go from here, but it's still odd to think that someone as ruthless and dedicated as the Major is to her cause would be willing to put it all on hold for two months to dick around with Saanvi like this.

This is very odd thinking indeed. What were the betting odds the Major would "plant" Dr. Matthews in Saanvi's workplace knowing that Saanvi had or would later have serious mental health issues; and that she, the Major, would end up becoming Saanvi's therapist? One million to one odds ... for or against?
Which could also be indicative of the ruthless Major's ignorance and or incompetence. If the Major doesn't already know about the "blood maker" and other DNA anomalies, based on the experiments and tests conducted on her kidnapped 828 passengers; the only real game the Major has is blindly "making it up on the go" and "spinning her wheels" while doing so. For someone with 22-years of "X-Files" experience, either the Major no longer believes the 828 passengers are an imminent threat? Or she no longer knows what to believe?
