  • Intense, believable and heartfelt episode.

    9.5
    Following on from the previous episode ( and continuing the almost-relationship between Rush and Amanda ) we find out what has happened to Amanda's host and what this means when someone using the communication stones is killed. The resulting tale of revenge at all costs plays out well, with the overt vengeance-seeking Rush and the quiet-seething anger of Eli filling most of the screen time. The death changes them both and to a degree changes how others see them. Even Rush's secrecy over the hidden bridge seems to be forgiven in light of the loss of Ginn and Amanda, and the escape of Simeon. Nice that the writer's didn't water down the final decision of Rush when confronting the man that has the secrets to the Lucian Alliance battle plans, and good to see Matt thinking for himself and moving away (possibly?) from the shadow of Col. Young. The over-riding arcs continue, but this is a good jump forward and provides a nice bit of development for some major characters. Entertaining episode.
