  • awesome show, and another great episode!!

    Awesome i honestly cant get enough of this show, and this ep was definitely one of my faves. we can see how differently Kyle sees the world around him in contrast to his family in this episode. jessi's character arch reminds me of tess from roswell anyone else think so? Her leap off of the cliff brightened my day! I am no follower of the Jessi train - her character while tragically and beautifully flawed i dont really buy it, honestly im kind of sick of that poor deer-in-the-headlights look she alwyas has on her face. kyle and the rest of his family as characters are well written and i really like declan's dynamic with them. And what about poor Amanda?? she's off to new york for paino tuition, now what - what does that mean for her and kyle? THIS is why i keep watching the show!!! awesome awesome awesome!moreless
  • uhm. kyle xy

    i love this show so much. the finale was awesome, especially when jessi jumped off the cliff in the ending. i was talking on the phone to my friend and we were watching together; we BOTH dropped the phone. it was really an amazing episode, but i was SO pissed when i found out that they didn't have any josh/andy drama in it AT ALL. those two make the best couple and i love all of the drama that goes on between. i definitely cannot wait until next season. a lot of people are saying that andy will die in the show, and if she does then i will feel so unbelievably bad for josh: he really loves andy and i would hate to see his heart crushed. josh is definitely my FAVORITE character, i love him SO much.moreless
  • Jessi becomes missing and Kyle believes it is his job to find her and find out why so is involved in his life.

    This was a great episode and I like all the twists and turns and all the emotion it went though. Kyle and Jessi are on a road trip to find out what the photo means and where it might lead them. Jessi believes she is a bad person and doesn't think Kyle should be nice to her. Jessi wants to find the girl in the photo and see if she can be her family. Jessi knows her sister is not really her sister and that she doesn't love her. Kyle wants to help her out and follows the hidden map on the ring that Adam gave Kyle before he died. Along the way, Jessi and Kyle enter a diner and the old man recognizes the couple from long ago, they look exactly the same. When Kyle is at the juke box and sees the title of Adams favorite song, he tries to play it but it is missing. That was the first clue Kyle needed to unlock the where abouts of Adam's hideaway cabin. I liked the idea of Adam giving clues in helping him find the path to find the answers for him and Jessi. Craving the initials on the table was another clue. Adam must have known Kyle would one day be using the hidden map since he did give the ring to him. When Jessi and Kyle finally find the hidden cabin and investigate it, they find a door that has a special kind of key to open it. When Kyle presses some buttons, it was Jessi who figured out it must be the song's melody to open it. When Kyle calls Amanda to play the song, you can hear Amanda worried voice when she knows Jessi is with him. Amanda was been hurt before and doesn't want it to happen again. Kyle wants to tell her all about himself but doesn't want to put her in danger. Boy this must eat up Kyle since he cares for Amanda a lot. When Kyle hears the song and thanks Amanda, she asks if he would be home before she lives. Kyle says that he hopes so but I don't think he will say good-bye with all that has happened. Kyle plays the melody on the lock and the door opens. Inside we find Adam hooked up with all these wires scanning his brain waves. Kyle tries to enter Adams subconscious but he needs a little help from Jessi since they are stronger together. When both of them are trying to read Adams thoughts, Adam tells Kyle Jessi has portrayed him. Jessi tricked Kyle to let his guard down and she read the information Medacorp needed. Jessi ran out of the room and toward the cliff. Kyle runs after her and asks her why she did that. I was very mad as her that I was hoping Kyle would kick her butt. They start fighting and it seems Jessi wants to report her findings to her fake sister. This was not the case. Jessi finally brakes free and jumps off the cliff and into the water down below. We don't know if she can survive the fall or even if she can swim. Jessi could be alive or dead. At the end of this episode all I was thinking about is will Jessi hurt Kyle in the future. I think if Kyle would have gotten to Jessi before Madacorp did, things would have been different for the show and the characters. I hope we get some answers when the season starts again.moreless
  • The season finale, sort of.

    This being the last episode before the break I expected to be left hanging but I didn't know what to expect quality wise. In a way I did, I expect that almost every episode will be great, but this episode really lived up to the shows recent greatness. Usually when a show leaves you hanging, it does so in a way that really makes you want to see the next episode. But when a show does that about 10 times worse then any other show, and then leaves you hanging for a couple of months, that really makes you go nuts. The episodes leading up to this finale were just awesome, and this half of the season has been so good, I can't even begin to describe how awesome it was. The show is going places, and I can not wait until the next half of the season starts up, I know it will be good, it's just a matter of waiting for it.moreless
  • Jessi's actions are puzzling to perhaps they should be. (Spoiler Warning)

    It seems that throughout the season we have seen Jessi struggling with who she is and fighting her 'programming' it seems like she has broken free from her program because she no longer believes the life story that was fed to her. So if she has succeeded in breaking free and is now just a confused kid, as Kyle once was, why would she betray Kyle like her programming told her to? Brainwashing should only be effective when you are unaware it is in place; as a function of the subconcious brain, once it moves into the stream of conscious thought it is no longer in control of our decisions. Its like when you are doing something out of habit/reflex, like riding your bike or blinking; you don't take any conscious thought to consider what you are doing. But if you become aware of what you are doing and begin to focus on your actions they are no longer automatic and may even begin to seem strange to you. So now that Jessi's subconscious programming has been moved into her conscious thought it would seem unlikely that she "couldn't help [herself]", as she told Kyle when he asked her why she had taken the information from his mind. So the question is did she do it out of programming or because she feels that helping Madacorp is the only way for her to be free like Emily promised her? Also, if she did it on purpose why did she feel guilty enough afterwards to jump over the falls; did she do it just to make a quick escape and get the info back to Madacorp?

    One more question, away from the topic of Jessi, is why would the house appear as if no one had lived there for a long time? Baylin is obviously in no condition to monitor his equipment and take care of the necessary functions himself, so someone would have to be around, and the house would be the only place for them to be when they aren't with Baylin. My guess is that Tom Foss is the one who has been taking care of Baylin. This is based on the facts that A)Baylin told Kyle the ring was all he needed, and told Kyle that he knew where he needed to go, so Foss must have known about the cabin already, and B)I think this must be where/why Foss disappeared for so long when he left Kyle alone, in order to check on Baylin.

    Unfortunately we have to wait awhile to find the answers to these questions....all I can say is at least it isn't as bad as LOST :)moreless

    • Declan: I think the family's starting to put things together.
      Foss: Yeah, I heard.
      Declan: What if they find out the truth?
      Foss: Well, they would, eventually.
      Declan: I won't matter anyway. They'd never turn their backs on Kyle. We haven't.
      Foss: Well, once they find out he's been lying to them, they'll never forgive him.
      Declan: What is he supposed to do?
      Foss: Well, it was a nice setup while it lasted, but once he gets back, we'll have to move on.

    • Jessi: You really believe, don't you?
      Kyle: I don't know if we'll find anything, but we might. When there's a chance, there's hope.

    • Jessi: But if I got into your head, what makes you think I won't take it from you?
      Kyle: Because I choose to trust you.

    • Lori: (to their parents) Enough with the looks. Stop skulking around.
      Josh: Yeah, skulking's my job. Don't mess with the balance of nature.

    • Nicole: (searching Josh's room) You realize we're doing this without a warrant?
      Stephen: Anything incriminating will not be held against him. For now.

    • Jessi: (about the woman in the picture) Do you think she's still alive? I mean, if she is then I'd have somebody. There'd be someone like me.
      Kyle: I'm like you.

    • Stephen: Well, we can't just sit here. Our former security guard is locked up at Madacorp by Kyle's parents' lawyer.
      Nicole: Obviously something is very wrong.

    • (Examining the evidence about Kyle.)
      Lori: Seriously, Josh, when you hear all this stuff together, it sounds so wild and weird.

      Lori: I know, who is he?

    • Jessi: I've done terrible things. Leave me here.
      Kyle: What?
      Jessi: I don't belong with someone like you; you should go on without me.

    • Nicole: The results of his MRI when I first took him on as a patient showed an unprecedented amount of brain activity. But the second MRI months later was normal.
      Josh: He sleeps in a tub! Let's start with that, and I think we can scratch "normal" off our Kyle adjective list.
