    Fifty-Fifty was a perfect episode and season finale of The 4400's third season. I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was a lot of action, drama, character and plot development. Jordan Collier finds Kevin and Tess and keeps them close. Isabelle thinks she is unstopable until her father comes to Tom's rescue and injects her with the needle Tom carries. Diana takes Maia out of the 4400 school against her wishes and Collier sets in motion a world changing movement. I think this episode show cases how great this show really is, how complex, how original, while making it feel like it could be a real possibility. I look forward to the next season!!!!!!!moreless
  • I guess we are finding out what is the masterplan!

    A really good episode which is really revealing. Jordon has come back a changed man and the fact that he came back from the dead he learned a lot of new things. He learned about the future when Alana helped him to figure out who he was.



    Now it comes to the Promicin the drug which either can give you an ability or kill you. You have to risk to know if you are on of the lucky ones.



    Maybe there will be a better future for Isabelle now that she has no powers. Dennis Ryland is one of the characters which I do not like at all.. he creates something and knows its effect and because it was stolen he did not give the side effect and he thinks that this something justified.



    Jordon knows what Promicin is doing after what happened to Devon and now they are telling the effect and risk of taking the drug. It was pretty strange that Shawn could not heal her. Maybe it is part of the drug that effects his healing.



    We see Kyle in the end going to take Promicin... who knows if he will get an ability or if he is going to actually take it. Shawn Farrell he shows that he is not trustworthy but in my opinion he did the right thing telling on Jordon. In the Prison we can see how hard that was for him and it left him very weak and unconcoius... Maia a very talented little girl..who sees the future (her 4400 ability). It was very interesting what she was about Diana and now I am hoping that she will take that step with Ben.



    Let's not forget Tom and Alana. It was quiet interesting what she said to Alana.. so what is going to happen actually? And what happened there at the end? Did she dissapear?



    Richard has changed since his wife Lily died. He did not have any control on Isabelle but he did the right thing at the end giving that injection to Isabelle.. but that means that he was ready to kill his daughter for the better of man kind.



    Tess and Kevin look good together and finally that are seeing their dream come to reality. But here is a question that you will have after finished this season : How is the promicin going to change everyone? How many people are going to die? And what is this war the have talked about all through this season?moreless
  • Ryland discovers he cannot control Isabelle.

    9.0
    An exciting and at times moving episode with an unexpected ending.



    Finally, father and daughter, Richard and Isabelle have to fight it out and with some help from Tom, Richard manages to overcome Isabelle. The result of the injection were surprising, most people assumed it would kill her, but 'all' it did was to cancel out her powers.



    The shot of Kyle considering taking promicin was sad but also expected.



    Alana disappearing was unexpected and Diana deciding to leave was very unexpected. Now we know because of Maia's prediction that she will return, but I wonder how that will happen and what it will take to get her to return...moreless
  • How much would you want a special ability? Is it worth a 50% you get it or 50% you die?

    8.5
    I think this was a very good season finale. First, Isabelle tries to kill the 4400 and Tom finally has the guts to inject her with the needle the future gave her. Ironically this doesn't kill her! Who knew? It simply made her human. Unfortunately before she was humanized, she messed with Shaun's mind and left him in a coma. And all I can say is I hope Isabelle disappears to jail. I really didn't think she made an effective villain this season



    Next Jordan Collier steals the promycin the government has accumulated and distributes it to anyone who wants it. The only catch is if it doesn't work you'll die. Thus the episode title 50/50. At the close of the episode we see both Tom's son and Diana's sister inject themselves. I think Tom's son will definitely develop an ability (it wouldn't make sense that they attempted to take him and then him not be able to develop an ability). Now as for Diana's sister, I really hope they don't bring her back as a character. But I do think the premise of a whole new bunch of characters with special abilities will make the coming season much more interesting.



    Finally, Tom's wife (or girlfriend not sure in this reality) appeared to be taken by the future. Not sure what this means, and I hope it's explained in the next season.moreless
  • Finally back on track.

    This season final got seaosn three back on track. I think season 3 went off the point on a few episodes and they rushed through a lot of plots like the NOVA group. Anyway the final to season three was left very open. Diana's sister is taking the drug that could give her 4400 abilities. Now that this drug is on the market thosands will die but others will gain abilities. Diana is leaving but i'm sure she will be back. I love the 4400 when it is on track. Season 1 and 2 were great. I hope season 4 stays good. I look forward to watching it.moreless
