  • Scene straight out of Helix!

    7.0
    Another slowish moving episode, although much more was crammed into this one than any of the others so far. The part where the scientist has black goo streaming from his eyes while an immortal Yasumoto looked on was taken straight out of Helix!
  • Shelter - They Lost Me

    4.0
    They lost me with this episode. Way too over the top, it went from an intriguing sci-fi drama to another "on the run" show with the government playing the role of big bad villain.



    A huge step in the wrong direction.
  • Big episode!

    I really enjoyed this one in which we get introduced to a new character in Molly's dad, who may or may not be significant moving forward, but he certainly had an impact on this one.



    Unfortunately they didn't get the results out in time and it looks like Yasumoto is clearly behind everything. He's trying to sustain his own life from what I gather, and what's inside Molly could help apparently.



    Overall, very good episode and I think the next one will be big!moreless

She goes to the bathroom and tries to dump the sample of Molly's blood in the toilet and Sparks and the guard barge in and catch her. Sparks calls Yasumoto and informs him about the blood sample, he knows Molly is trying to determine the paternity of the baby.

Molly wakes up and is strapped down to a bed, with a few doctors hovering over her in hazmat suits. Yasumoto watches as his men hoist Molly up on to an operating table. Sparks finds the DNA test Molly and John had just completed, he pushes the button to see the results. Yasumoto's men have Molly strapped down to the operating table and is in and out of consciousness as a laser slices her stomach open. Now lt's Getting Very Interesting.moreless
