  • Unnatural & rushed

    I enjoy Sanctuary the series, but I just have to say that I simply don't really like this episode.

    I found the acting in this episode to be unnatural, some dialogues were a bit weird, and I felt that the pacing was also quite rushed. I can't say I like Kate's suit either (sadly). It was just an odd episode, I guess. Other than that, I've enjoyed the season so far :)moreless
  • Great Episode. Little weird in some places, but great, none the less. :)

    This was a great episode. Little weird in some places, when Kate is acting strange, but the good outweighed the bad by far. I kind of like this abnormal, so seeing it again was pretty cool. And Hero II, I also thought it was weird no one else reviewed on this. This was actually one of the better episodes in the season. I personally think that this season seems a little more uncoordinated, though it doesn't bring down my opinion on Sanctuary as a whole: Sanctuary is definitely the most awesome, and most addicting TV show I have ever watched before. Cool plots, new characters coming in and out... It's just great :)moreless
  • Hero II : Broken Arrow

    Hero II : Broken Arrow was a superb episode of Sanctuary. I must say that I'm a little disappointed that there are no reviews before my own. This is one of the greatest shows on syfy, yet I don't see the audience. I'm sure its there, or it wouldn't still be on. I hope that this series continues well into the future, maybe even go as far as Stargate SG1, because I wish Amanda Tapping all the best. On to the review of this episode, I admit that I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, however it ended up being a ver good episode. There was lots of action, a little intrigue and drama that set up future story lines, and some character insight. I think this episode was fun, and touching at the same time. I look forward to the next episode, and if you watch this show, make sure you show it support so that it continues!!!!!moreless

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Kate: True or false? Normandy, 1944, allied invasion - you were on French soil when it happened?
      Helen: Do you have that inventory I asked for?
      Kate: Ah-hah! Sorry, Hank.
      Henry: What do you mean, ah-hah? That wasn't a denial. She didn't say "false", she asked you for your homework.

    • Henry: All right, pay up. I won the bet.
      Kate: A Hitler youth knife and a vintage Luger are not evidence that she was in France in 1944.
      Henry: Yeah, they are if they both belonged to a ranking Gestapo agent who was stationed in that area of Europe at that time.
      Kate (stammering): But, uh …
      Helen: Have you been rummaging through the catacombs? Those are my personal mementos, not toys to be wagered with.
      Kate: I totally understand. So is it true?

    • (all are in Hazmat suits, evacuating Abnormals after an environmental breach)
      Helen: Section Three is secure. Where's Will?
      Henry: He's evac-ing the north wing.
      Will (entering): Sorry, just had a little trouble with the telekinetic shrimp - willful little bugger. (removes head protector and exhales) Wow, claustrophobic much?

    • Helen: The only reason Walter's suit was on the truck this morning was because the environmental alarms went off.
      Henry: Which I still have no explanation for, by the way.
      Helen: The attackers knew it was on this transport, which means …
      Big Guy (grumbling): They planned the whole thing.
      Henry: Whoa, whoa, Doc. An op like that, that's extensive planning. That's …
      Helen: Not to mention flawless execution. Clearly we're dealing with a highly sophisticated group. Henry … (hands him computer)
      Henry: Figure out who did it and how. On it.
      Will: That still doesn't explain how they knew about the suit. It's not like we took an ad out on Craigslist saying that we had it.

    • (cell phone rings, spoiling an onset take)
      Actor: Are … for real!? Dudes!?
      Director: CUT!
      Actor: Whose phone is that!?
      Walter: Oh, oh, that's me. Sorry, sorry, sorry … It's my agent.
      Director: Somebody find me a P.A. to fire.
      Walter: Hey, Terry, what's up? The remake of Sixth Sense? No, no, no. No, no. I'm-I'm totally into it. It's just, uh … doesn't everybody already know … Okay, set it up.

    • St. Pierre: We shoulda been long gone by now.
      Ray: The suit's natural resistance …
      St. Pierre: I know about the suit's natural resistance, Ray. You said the machine could overcome it.
      Ray: There have been power fluctuations. The machine isn't operating at peak capacity.
      St. Pierre: What, are you kidding me right now, Ray? What is this joke time? We're not in some cushy lab somewhere, that's why you can't get this done?
      Ray: No, I-I didn't mean …
      St. Pierre: I don't care what you meant. The Board of Directors has been hounding my ass about this suit. If I don't recover it in time for their meeting tomorrow night, they're gonna use us both as bait for their marlin fishing excursion. Understand!?

    • Henry: Uh, hey … you know, I haven't heard from you in a while. You kinda stopped returnin' my emails … and my texts … and my Facebook messages.
      Walter: Yeah. Sorry, I … was really busy. I mean, you know how it is.
      Henry: Right. Yeah.
      Walter: So, uh … d'ya hear about the movie?
      Henry: I did, man. That is great for you.
      Walter: You know what, I should get you a copy of the script.
      Henry: I already read it … Internet … just gotta know where to look.

    • Walter: This is … so exciting. We actually get to do a case together!
      Helen: We don't. You're staying here. You can assist us when we get back.
      Will: We'll tell you all about it. Hey, maybe you can write another comic book.

    • (the team finds Kate dressed as Catwoman)
      Will: Is that … the suit?
      Helen: Kate, thank God! Come with us, quickly.
      Kate (laughs): Hell, no. I'm just getting started. (tosses a dumpster at Helen and laughs) Sweet.

    • St. Pierre: I was working on a ballistics protection suit using a species of telepathic bacteria …. and we had a little incident at our lab.
      Will: The suit got away.
      St. Pierre (irritated): Yes, the suit got away! I've been tryin' to get it back ever since and I ran out of leads until your friend showed up with the movie script.
      Helen: And you … sent that girl along.
      St. Pierre: Well, easiest way to get information is to send a … hot girl to ask for it, right, Magnus? Not exactly a CIA spook, your guy.

    • Walter: Well, they need people in the street. Maybe you and I could …
      Big Guy: No.
      Walter: Well, I could at least …
      Big Guy: No! You've done enough.
      Walter: Look … I know you're still pissed off at me for what happened.
      Big Guy: And?
      Walter: And I can help, okay? I know that suit. I have mad skills.
      Big Guy: What kind of "mad skills"?
      Walter: I have an above average IQ and tremendous powers of persuasion.
      Big Guy: Right.
      Walter: I'm a storyteller. (the Big Guy sighs) Alright, fine. Okay? But I'm a fast learner, and-and you can train me. I'll be Cyclops to your Professor X. (the Big Guy groans) Oh, please, just tell me what I have to do to become of you guys. What's the application process? Interviews? I rock the interview. Job fairs?
      Big Guy: You really wanna help?
      Walter: Yes, of course.
      Big Guy: Stay out of our way.

    • Brad: Nice outfit. Surprised to see you after what went down the last time.
      Kate: Aw-w … You stole my money - and hung me out to dry.
      Brad: Still holding a grudge.
      Kate: Me? No, I'm over it. I just came for an apology.
      Brad (laughs): Oh … I don't know what you're on, but you made a big mistake coming here. I warned you I'd kill you if I ever saw you again.

    • Helen: What are you doing here?
      St. Pierre: Me? What about you? I thought we were working together.
      Helen: Please. You're a child with money.
      St. Pierre: Oh, that's mature.

    • searching for Kate again:
      Henry: Hey, Kate? Kate, it's Henry, why don't you come on out …? I promise I comment about how hot you look.

    • Kate (laughing after knocking him out): Nothing personal, Big Guy.

    • Walter (after taking out Virgil and his thugs): Oh, man. I forgot the catchphrase.
      Helen: Yeah, it's better without it.

    • (Kate is gazing out a window in the Sanctuary)
      Kate: Is, uh, everyone still mad at me?
      Helen (scoffs): They'll get over it - hurt pride more than anything else. So, what are you doin' up here - thinking of places the suit could take you?
      Kate: No. I'm just happy to be home.

    • Henry: So, what's next?
      Walter (sighs): Well, I still gotta do the movie, even though it's a piece of crap.
      Henry: You know, you should fight. Tell 'em you wanna do it your way.
      Walter: They own the rights, man, they can do whatever they want.
      Henry: Come on, dude. (adjusts to a low, growly voice) What would The Adjuster do?

  • NOTES (1)


    • Walter: But I'm a fast learner, and-and you can train me. I'll be Cyclops to your Professor X.

      Walter is alluding to Professor Charles Francis Xavier, a Marvel Comics superhero and the leader and founder of the X-Men. He has been portrayed by Patrick Stewart in several X-Men films and games. Cyclops (played by James Marsden in the films) was the first X-Man recruited by Professor Xavier, becoming not only his most loyal pupil and trusted lieutenant, but the tactical field commander of the X-Men as well.
