  • This episode was alright however everybody was all out of character and there was no other focus or subplot save Zack\'s return.

    The episode was a bit of a let down especially in terms of Alec and Max\\\'s relationship. Although it is clear that Alec does not view Max ina sisterly way when he wants to see her naked laying groundwork for future episodes. However Alec simply taking Max\\\'s word and leaving her alone was out of character.

    It was also very strange that Max could not break the handcuffs for ages until Zack left suddenly where did she get that extra strength to suddenly break the handcuffs just to save Logan. Similarly, Zack\\\'s change from looking like a steelhead to suddenly being all normal seemed very contrived and way too easy especially his eye. I also did not find it at all believable that Zack could hold up Alec by his neck. Alec has 10 years of training on Zack and until the demise of Manticore was as dedicated as Zack to his training.

    This episode did shed a little light on Alec showing him not to be as carefree as he seems. The fact that he stopped selling drugs cos it kills his customers could be construed as losing business from lack of customers but also guilt.

    All in all the episode was fairly alright especially in its showcase of Zack\\\'s fondness for Max which was only ever hinted at last season.
