Of course, all the little Quinns will be male...

She's a bit ruthless with Ethan, and very sneaky, but she does some clever stuff. Her bit of tactical judo with the false STD report is fun, as is the whole business with the newts, and I really liked that she agrees to donate an ovary to Athos. The idea of hundreds of little Quinns running around there is just delightful, and it shows a more generous side to Elli's character.
