    This was another solid episode, in which we continued to see the different road taken by both Jesse and Jacob. Jesse discovers that both he and his father have a tumor in the head exactly the same in the same place, and goes to Owen Crawford for help. Meanwhile after Owen finds his wife trashing his stuff and opening the safe to find the piece of metal that he had taken from Sue, decides that it is better to eliminate her.



    He makes a plan that ends up with killing both his wife and one of his lackey, Howard Bowen, by making up a story that they were having an affair.moreless
  • The story of those that have been Taken continues in a fine way.

    9.0
    As with all major miniseries, one can't expect each and every episode to be jam packed with information and to move the plot along in great strides. With this, the third installment of Taken, we learn just a little bit more of how the lives of those involved with the visitors are progressing. Most of this episode takes place in the early 60s. We see Jacob and Jesse growing and maturing, each coming to terms with their respective destinies. We see Jake, the alien hybred coming into his powers. We see Jesse coming to terms with the fact that both his and his father Russell could die due to the fact that they have been taken...multiple times each it appears. We stil do not know why the "Greys" have come to Earth, but I do know that with each passing moment the consipiracies grow thicker, the plot deepens, and destinies take their path to fullfillent.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Allie: (narrating) The world is made up of the big things that happen and the small ones. And the part that's so unfair is that we call them "big" and "small." Because when something happens to you, when you lose something or someone that you really care about, that's all there is. The world may be blowing up around you, but you don't care about that. You don't care about that at all.

    • Owen: Alle ihre erinnerungen kommmen auf einmal. Alle ihre erinnerungen und alle ihre aengste. "All your memories play at once. All your memories and all your fears."

    • Allie: (narrating) Poeple like to examine the thing that frighten them, to look at them and give them names, so saints look for God, and scientists look for evidence. They're both just trying to take away the mystery, to take away the fear.

    • Allie: (narrating) We're all standing on the edge of a cliff, all the time, every day, a cliff we're all going over. Our choice is'nt about that. Our choice is about whether we want to go kicking and screaming or whether we might want to open our eyes and our hearts to what happens once we start to fall.

    • Allie: (narrating) I have this idea about why poeple do the terrible things they do. Same reason little kids push each other on the schoolyard. If you're the one doing the pushing, then you're not going to be the one who gets pushed. If you're the monster, then nothing will be waiting in the shadows to jump out at you. It's pretty simple, really. Poeple do the terrible things they do because they're scared.

    • Allie: (narrating) My grandfather used to tell my mum that kids should never have to worry about anything more serious than baseball. Everything you need to know is there. It has success and failure, moment where you come together and moments where you stand alone. And it has an ending. Not a clock, like in other sports, but an ending. And that, my grandfather used to say to my mum, is as close as a kid should have to come. To that sort of thing.

    • Allie: (narrating) We all like to think that we have some control over the events in our lives, and a lot of the time we can fool ourselves into thinking that we really are in charge. But then something happens to remind us that the world runs by its own rules and not ours and that we're just along for the ride.

    • Owen Crawford examines the photo of an unidentified married couple abducted by aliens. The photo is of real-life couple Betty and Barney Hill, who became famous in the early 1970's when hypnotherapy sessions allegedly revealed that they had been abducted by aliens.
