  • Gone (2)

    Gone (2) was a perfect episode of The 4400 and followed up very well with the previous episode. I enjoyed watching this episode as Tom discovers a mysterious yet familiar girl in Alana's illusion world. A woman claiming to be Maia's sister makes an appearance, but is not who she seems. I thought it was interesting how Shawn and Richard finally came together for the 4400 center, and Isabelle grows more confident of herself. Richard tries to sway Isabelle to stop sleeping with Shawn who agreed, but Isabelle is not ready for the relationship to end and makes it known. It was neat in the one scene before Isabelle tells Shawn she is not ready to end it, they both match each other. It was nice to learn more about the people from the future. Shawn pays the price for betraying the Nova Group. I look forward to watching the next episode of The 4400!!!!!!!moreless
  • Inconsistent and illogical storyline.

    Huh? I don't get it. The way that Tom contacted the future humans was to attempt to kill himself - he was then whisked away to the future, unharmed. Does this mean he is being constantly monitored from the future? Why do they care if he kills himself or not?

    Also, why do the characters have memories of Maia? Their memories were not erased by the future humans - their memories of Maia never existed because the Maia they knew was sent into the distant past. They, therefore, never even knew Maia.

    This could have been an incredibly satisfying story (it sure started out that way in part 1). Instead, it degenerated into an inconsistent and illogical disappointment.moreless
  • Tom manages to convince the people from the future to return the lost children.

    Another exciting ending to an episode.

    While all these different time lines and dream realities are getting slightly difficult to keep track off, Tom reuniting Diana and Maia was heart-warming to see. It will be very interesting to see what he will do about this task given to him. Will he live up to his end of the bargain and kill Isabelle or will he try to find a way round it knowing that it endangers the future??

    I did not like Isabelle attacking Richard, at times it seems like Matthew is controlling her, which contradicts the last two episodes but matches earlier episodes.

    I hope Shawn will be OK.moreless
  • Tom and Diana realise there is a little girl hunting them, therefore they try to find out who the little girl is, while Isabelle is causing problem in the 4400 centremoreless

    This second part of gone; really show a great connection between the Diana and Maia. No matter how power the future people have, they manage to wipe out everything about the 4400 children who were taken and put back further in the past to change the future. The connection between Diana and Maia is too stronger, that Diana is being haut by Maia’s memory. When Diana discover that she have a daughter in the alternate reality, the flash back memory really create an emotional effect. The scene itself is very touching, after Diana found out about her missing child, she is willing to die in the dream world with her daughter, and tom show a great friendship by willing to scarifies himself to get Maia back. This part was very good, it really shows no matter how different people may be to each other, the connection can still be form and will be unbreakable, and somewhere the humanity is still inside of us. And it is worth saving for.moreless
  • Part two unfolds...

    Matthew: If the NOVA group wants to hurt you Shawn, they'll find a way to do it.

    Shawn: Well that's great Matthew, thanks for the pep talk.

    The second part of the exciting yet implausible Gone story.

    Suicide, dream sequences and a faceless Maia all feature in this tale that switches location nearly every scene. The Maia-related scenes are interspersed with some frankly dull ones involved with Shawn, Richard and Matthew at the 4400 Centre. i think so far this series, the stories have become a lot slower and "bogged" down with ongoing storylines. Conchita Campbell was great in this though.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Alana: So this woman took these children and somehow made everyone forget they ever existed?
      Diana: Yes, but they existed. Maia Rutledge disappeared from Crescent City, California, March 3rd, 1946.
      Tom: So, wait, you're saying she was abducted, then returned with the other 4400, then taken again and none of us remember this but you?
      Diana: It's like they've wiped all of our memories!
      Alana: But why?
      Diana: Because they didn't want us looking for them. The 4400 were taken and returned to change the future in some way. And maybe, maybe Maia and the others were taken so that they could change it again. But I don't know and I don't care. All I know is that four days ago, she was here with me. And I, I need you to believe that I have a daughter named Maia and that she's been taken from me.
      Tom: I don't remember Maia or the kidnapping or any of it. And the idea that my memory's been messed with scares the hell out of me. But after everything we've been through with the 4400, yes, Diana, I believe you.
      (Diana walks over to Tom and embraces him)

    • (while in one of Alana's dream realities)
      Tom: It's you. The girl on the road.
      Maia: That's right. You remember. Maia.
      Tom: Maia. Have we met before?
      Maia: Don't be silly.
      Tom: No, no, I'm sorry, I-I... don't remember you.
      Maia: Sure you do. Think harder.
      Tom: Is that why you keep showing up? 'Cause you want me to remember?
      Maia: I'm here because you brought me here.

    • Diana: Today I found out that my daughter, who I loved, was sent back into the past and died 150 years ago. I'm sorry, but that's gonna take me a while to come to terms with.

    • Judge Biederman: You know, some of us have to look far and wide to find the people we call family. You two had to look clear across time.

    • (in one of Alana's dreamworlds)
      Tom: What's for lunch?
      Alana: Prosciutto and figs, rosemary chicken, couscous and raspberries.
      Tom: You know, when Kyle and I used to go fishing we'd take half a dozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and think we were living like kings.
      Alana: Well, I like to think the reality I create is a little bit tastier.

    • (Devon sees Isabelle and Shawn kissing)
      Devon: I'll take the elevator.

    • (After getting caught by Devon)
      Isabelle: It's OK, she won't tell my dad.
      Shawn: But Devon will tell someone, who will tell someone else, and then everyone will know.

    • Tom: Jarvis said you took a sick day.
      Diana: Well, I'm allowed.

    • Isabelle: Experts say you should do adventerous things to keep the relationship interesting.
      Shawn: So you've switched from reading Brittanica Encyclopedia to Cosmo Magazine?

    • Matthew: If the NOVA groups wants to hurt you Shawn, they'll find a way to do it.
      Shawn: Well that's great Matthew, thanks for the pep talk.

    • Isabelle: I don't want this relationship to end. (kisses Shawn). So it's not going to.

    • Sara: If we return them to you, all the good that they have done in the past will be negated. The 4400 and everything that they were meant to achieve will be in jeopardy.
      Tom: This evil, there has to be some other way to deal with it.
      Sara: There is. You. You are the other way. It's a burden that we had hoped not to place on you.
      Tom: If you return Maia and the others, I'll do whatever you want.
      Sara: What we want, you may not be willing to give.
      Tom: Do we have a deal or not?
      Sara: We do. But it's a deal I'm afraid you'll come to regret.
