    i love this show because it's so exciting, it's so watchable and it's not boring. this episode have a lot of stuff happening in it. the plot is so engaging, the writers did a really good job here. this episode, is going on a climax, the heat is building up. the main characters are really cool, Laura, Rich and Miles. having them go through their lives are really fun to watch. it's a very interesting story, i've seen one episode at least 2 times, I'm going to buy the dvd so I can watch it again. I love this show, I really love it.moreless
  • The pace is set as we race for the end of the season. Rich follows the clues while Laura, uncomfortable with Rich's aggressive negotiation technique, is 'handed in' to Lee and the suits by her ex.moreless

    On the whole I enjoyed this ep. But there were a couple of things that annoyed me. Namely, the thing with the cell phones.

    How did Rich know Lee's cellphone number to call Laura? And how did Lee know it was Rich calling (since he looked at the screen and handed the phone straight over to Laura). OR if it was her phone how come he could wirelessly connect to it without any 'discovery' or synchronisation?



    Anyway, apart from that nitpick...



    The 'mob' scene outside Miles house was disturbing. It would have been nice if someone had pointed out to Greg's father though, that his son had been bullying and kicking Miles up to the point Miles defended himself. I'm sure it wouldn't have been the first time someone had pointed out his son was a thug.



    I'm guessing that the 2 of everything find Rich made at Iderdex coupled with and the undersea earthquake that causes the tsunami is part of Kessler's master plan to wipe out the human race so that he can repopulate to his own design.



    Roll on season final next week

  • Better without the monkey... lol

    I keep wondering when they are actually going to try to be creative enough to come up with episode titles, but considering we're up to episode 14, I'm thinking it'll probably never happen, not this season anyway. Maybe next season, if there is a season two.



    Could Daughtery *be* any more of a useless female? Standing around and screaming while the boys duke it out - and, just a thought, if you say "Don't make me shoot you - stop right there" - then *shoot* the guy if he keeps coming at you! Go for a non life-threatening shot - arm, leg, foot, whatever, but shoot the guy, quit bluffing.



    Please don't make Miles eat any of those eggs after putting that much salt on them, in the diner. Ick... Hmm, pointing a loaded shotgun in a crowded diner - can you say collateral damage?



    Damn, that was smooth - LOL!!! "Maybe we should talk about this outside..." then slams the door behind her so he can continue beating on Lee.



    I don't know about you, but when someone tells me to pull over, I would *slow down* and pull off the road - not accelerate around a corner and go slamming down a dirt road...



    Well, it's official - Laura's ex is a prick... Calling the exact guys that she least wants to see...



    That crowd around Miles and Greg gathered really quickly - usually takes some time for the grapevine to spread the word of a fight going on. The scene where "the angry townsfolk" gather outside Miles' house - well, you had to know that was coming.



    Okay... I didn't expect Lee to let Laura go. Little bits of information keep dribbling out, but at least we're finally getting some real pieces of the story to put together. I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say that the man in the white hat is Alger Kessler.



    At least there was no talking monkey this week - the show has regained some of it's previous intelligence, which is nice. I had been despairing of that for a while. Here's hoping that next week continues in the same vein.

  • Very good episode leading to what looks to be an exciting Season Finale!!!

    8.8
    Rich has had enough and he wants answers, and he plans to get them any way he can. Laura is not liking how Rich is acting, and has had enough of him after he gets super violent on Lee. Lee the bad guy of the show "learns" he is not real, but then again he suspected it, but never wanted to face it. When it's revealed that Lee is a clone it really makes you think about how far these experiements have gone, and we get answers to that question when Rich goes to North Carolina to Iderdex.



    Laura goes to see her son, but her husband feels she is a danger. He called the authorities on her, and she is taken in by Lee's people. Laura is begging for her life, but Lee actually let's her go.



    There is this one scene where Miles is at a diner with his friend, and all the sudden Nem enters the diner. That whole connection issue between human and creature is simply amazing. Miles seems so at ease with the conection, but at the same time unaware of how powerful he is.



    Miles being teased by his sisters bully ex-boyfriend hurts him during a fight, and a mob wants Miles to pay. The neighborhood people now consider Miles a freak and a monster. The crowd has him, but things are halted when the crowd hears a tsunamis is on it's way and everyone must evacuate. Talk about shocking!!!!



    Needless to say the Season Finale will be a must watch episode to see how they plan to end things.

    • The "Federal Building, San Francisco, California" establishing shot is actually of the Federal Courthouse in lower Manhattan, New York City, although not the same as the Federal Building in NYC, which is nearby on a different block. "United States Federal Courthouse" is visible on the portico.

    • The earthquake was reported as being of a magnitude 9.8 in the "Hispaniola Trench" .
      There is no Hispaniola Trench, but there is a Puerto Rico Trench which runs along the boundary between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea just north of Puerto Rico, and includes the deepest part of the Atlantic, the Milwaukee Deep (28,232 feet). Seismologists have found that an underwater earthquake there could generate a sizable tsunami.


      The strongest earthquake ever recorded was a magnitude 9.5, in Chile in 1960. The 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake, which generated tsunamis that killed over 280,000 people, was a 9.3. A magnitude 9.8 quake would be the equivalent of a 5-mile diameter asteroid hitting the earth at twice escape velocity.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Richard: ... It's like Noah's Ark.

      Rich is, of course, referring to the biblical story of Noah who was asked to build a boat because of an upcoming storm that God was creating to kill off man-kind. He was told to bring 2 of each animal onto the boat.
