    • episode exploring simon's reasons for being on community service as well as sally's attempt to get close to hime to find out what happened to tony

      8.0
      I thought that this was actually a rather good ep. as it focused on simon, the quiet and shy type who was framed as a bit weird thus far. The cat and mouse stuff was tense at times and the vulnerability of the characters really came through and the climax wasn't bad either. I'm curious about the repercussions and will be eagerly tuning in... Filling out the ep. was Curtis dealing with time travelling and attempts to end a relationship (which in the end worth a laugh) and an empowered baby which filled in some backstory for Nathan, who has been an unsympathetic character for much of the season.moreless
    • Sally "seduces" Simon playing on his loneliness trying to find more proof of their guilt. Side plot about a baby with the power to influence people trying to make Nathan it's dad.moreless

      5.0
      A disappointing episode overall, far to slowly paced with everything telegraphed far in advance. Focus was very much Simon centric which is where it was weakest. It's a shame as his powers and personality could have made for a much more interesting story.



      Simon's back story was filled in as to his criminal background, Kelly's character is filling out a bit and in one respect she got to save the day.



      The baby plot seemed a stretch to be honest, I think keeping the secret of Nathan's power is making it very difficult to write interesting stories for him. Hopefully this will be fixed next week.



      Alisha did little this week apart from the obligatory bra shot. Curtis's elements were quite funny



      Picked up right at the end so hopefully the finale will be bettermoreless
