  • Joshua is driven into the sewers with a blind girl named Annie.

    9.0
    This episode was good but sad. Max was sent to the sewers to save Joshua, but as Max was going to the sewers, idiotic Sketchy decides to follow her. 2 times Sketchy was punched in the face and was called idiot 3 times. I laughed everytime, cuz you'd think it was gonna be Max that white heard but he turns the corner and ends up punching Sketchy! I hated how they had White kill Annie because then people thought that Joshua did it and she was someone who loved Joshua and Joshua loved her. Joshua offered to stay with her but she said no and made joshua leave. If he stayed or if she went with him, this wouldnt have happened! but, besides that, it was a good episode!moreless

    man i cant even express how this episode made me feel in words! i just want to stab white! a billion times! i just want to scream! and like i said in my other reveiw any thing that makes you feel this way deserves a 10. max still is avoiding logan!!! ok well any way, joshua goes to see anna and some street thugs start to chase him cuz hes a transginic, then he meets up with anna and those stupid fools think hes kidnapped her! it didnt even look like he was!!! so he tries to tell her to stay but she says no and this would have been the perfect time to tell her about him!! but no! he takes her into the sewers and he gets cornered and he tells her finnally! and shes pissed he lied but he still liked him, so she tells him to leave and get out and that the police will get her out, so he goes and max gets him out. and then white finda anna in the sewers and he kills her!!!!!!! that basterd!!!!! poor joshua!! she was so nice!! and they blamed it on him!!!!!! i just cant beleive it made me so angry`. oh and also people know that the transgeics can look normal too, so that sucks for max and alec so they get their bar codes removed.moreless

    Another sad episode...



    With the city of Seattly reeling from the recent exposure of mutants in the city, tensions are high, and the situation precarious for all "mutant" transgenics. Joshua can't move beyond his lying to and forsaking Annie, so he leaves his house in the daylight to go find her. Unfortunately, he's spotted by some neighborhood thugs, who track him through the night and finally catch up with him the next day. Annie also crosses his path the next day, and, after fighting the thugs, Joshua drags her down to the sewers to protect her. With the police and White's mutant hunters on their trail, they move deeper and deeper into the sewers.



    Meanwhile, Max gets word of what's going on and goes to find Joshua. With the help of Logan, she finds him, and they escape, but Annie is left behind in the tunnel. During the search, the media has gathered, along with mutant protesters. Annie's fate is unknown until Max, Joshua, and Alec are safe at home and hear on the news that the girl kidnapped by the mutant was found dead in the tunnel. The three know it must have been White who killed her. Joshua is devasted, as our hatred of White grows.



    Through it all, Max discovers that though she may push Logan away, he'll always be there to fight for her. He knows her and the rest of the mutants just want a life like everyone else. But the insecurity of people will continue to cause them to react, violently if necessary, to that which is different.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • TRIVIA: Kandyse McClure (Annie Fisher) and Jorge Vargas (Bug - one of the three streetboys) starred in the 2000 TV series Higher Ground about a group of troubled & arguably misunderstood teens sent to a boot camp/school.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Attorney (on television): As soon as we find the parties for unleashing these transgenics we'll be seeking damages in the tens of millions.
      Alec: Oh, yeah. I'm sure Manticore's gonna write you a big, fat cheque for that one, buddy.

    • Alec (referring to the Eyes Only broadcast): You know what this is about?
      Max: Logan's just doing what he thinks he right.
      Alec: He's reaching out to someone. I'm pretty sure it ain't me.

    • Asha: What's got people freaked is what he looks like, you know. What he is.
      Logan: I guess I've been living with the idea that transgenics exist for so long I've gotten used to it.

    • Alec: This is gonna hurt, isn't it?
      Max: Lasers tend to, yeah.

    • Annie: Why are you hiding from the police?
      Joshua: I can't tell you.
      Annie: What did you do?
      Joshua: Not what I did. What I am.

    • Alec (emptying the wallets of the cops he's knocked out): Do you have any idea how little the cops in this burg get paid? It's pathetic.

    • Alec: Max, C'maaaawn! Heh... I'm stuck here! An innocent man. Framed for the murder committed by his clone. (He pauses, then brightens) I was thinking about selling the story to Hollywood, make a great TV movie, whaddya think?

    • Logan: I just want you to know...however things may be between us, I always got your back.
      Max: I know. Me too.

    • Max: Sketchy? Idiot.
      White: Idiot.
      Normal: You idiot!

    • White: A hundred thousand years ago, some humpback violates a dolphin, and this is what we get. Makes a pretty good argument for selective breeding, huh?

    • Eyes Only: Not alive? Not human? Who are you to sit in judgment, Mr. Caldwell? Have you seen that tape? Did you see the look in his eyes? He was scared, cornered. And despite what people like you have been saying about them, transgenics aren't that different from you and me. They do feel, they do hurt, they are alive. … Take a moment to talk to those you're condemning. They could tell you what it's like to be afraid, alone in a hostile world. And it might be more convenient to pretend otherwise, but in the end, who does that say more about - them, or us? This has been a streaming freedom video bulletin. Peace. Out.

    • Joshua: Hey, little fella.
      Max: Hey, big fella.
      Alec: I guess that makes me medium fella.
