  • Magnus is suspected of killing the big guy and MacRae and the Sanctuary heads are leading a witch hunt to bring her down. They bring in the Triad a group of psychics to discover the truth, but there seems to be an agenda hidden somewhere by someone.

    This is going to be a tough episode to review without giving the important information away. The big guy has been shot and killed and all roads point to Helen Magnus as the culprit. Add to this the fact that MacRae seems bent on taking over the San Fransisco house and they Sanctuary Network is actually trying to help him. Only Will, Henry, and Kate are left to find the real truth.

    Enter the Triad led by Emma played by Erica Cerra from Eureka fame. She and the two men who make up the Triad have psychic abilities and the capability to read minds and deduct the truth. One of them, the uncredited Spencer seems to be in cahoots with MacRae, and all the suspicion on the part of Will is pointing that way.

    The fact that Helen is acting insane and not herself with a huge amount of paranoia and no self control doesn't help. The episode really falls into place in the last fifteen minutes as a number of fairly implausible explanations are brought forth to settle everything. Overall an enjoyable episode with a web of lies, intrigue, and suspicions leading the way. A fine job of directing by Amanda Tapping and acting by Robin Dunne really carries the show. We really get to see who is who on the Sanctuary staff and where they all stand as well. One things for certain. Helen did a really intelligent thing bringing Will into work with her the year before. Thanks for reading.
