  • Sean and Leila look for Samantha (?) and everybody Thomas tries to take power back from Sophia.

    For an episode preceding the fall finale, there really wasn't that much that happened. In fact, even though there was a pretty cool chase scene near the end of the episode, it wasn't enough to pack a punch. This entire episode felt like nothing happened. The characters all talk to each other, get really upset about certain things and sad about others and I'm just finding it harder and harder to focus.



    I will admit, I loved the way the show started.. it threw us into the middle of a mystery with these prisoners and we were slowly given answers as new questions popped up. But the show, after revealing a certain amount of things, began to go overboard with the revelations and the story became as convoluted as any other serial drama similar to it. At least "Lost" had good characters though... This show makes it really hard to care.



    There were some okay parts in the episode though. I do like the way we're slowly building up to the moment where Sean and Leila find where Samantha is being held; it reminds me of some of 24's best plotlines, and while the show is far from being as good as 24, it gives me the same feeling, which is good. And the tension between Sophia and Thomas was pretty good tonight, although it was quite obvious neither of them would die. The show doesn't seem to have the guts to do the hard thing and surprise us.



    And as for the stuff with the President, everything moved at a snail's pace. Nothing happened. But it looks like that the fall finale next week will try to resolve as much as they can before the two month break. Then again, it's possible they will just leave us hanging and nothing will actually happen.. but I won't be surprised, I'm sort of expecting it right now.moreless

    Your World to Take was a really great episode of The Event. I really enjoyed watching this episode because we got to see deeper into some of the characters emotions and situations. This episode had some action, suspense, drama and intrigue. There are some revelations made, and new questions asked. What I really like is how there are a few story lines and they seem to interact independently, though they are all tied together. Some times these story lines intersect, but they don't need to in order to move the episode and series along. I can't wait to see what happens next!!!!!moreless
