    When I first watched an episode of this show, I thought that it would turn out to be no more than a stupid, lack-luster waste of time. The only reason that I even gave it a try was because Paul Dini was the mastermind and I had a hard time believing that anything he churned out wouldn't be worth watching. I was pleasantly surprised. This show has gotten better by the episode, building suspense and leading to an explosive two-part finale. In part one, we find Ian and his friends finally begining to formulate a viable escape plan. The re-appearance of Connor (from 'Dreams') and Shinji only serves to complicate things. Headmaster and his Monitors quickly discover Connor's presence and lock down the school, searching the rooms of Ian and his friends for any incriminating evidence. However, the way Ian sees it, only one of his gang could hae tipped Headmaster off to their escape plan. The disappearance of the Broken and Headmaster's discovery of Suki's satellite phone can only mean that one of them is snitching to the enemy. With himself and Gabe as the only ones that he feels he can truly trust, Ian has to find out who's the traitor, the hot Asian with family issues or the one he loves. All in all, this was an excellent episode. It really left me on edge for the finale. I saw CJ being the traitor coming from a mile away (She said in the last episode that her father would hate it if she escaped the school, but she has repeatedly stated that she doesn't know where or who her family is and knows nothing of her life before attending Tower Prep. If nothing else, this at least proved that she had something to hide and made her the best candidate for being the traitor. Ian is the leader and we se him the whole time, so he's out. Gabe might have known about Broken, but he doesn't have access to the girl dorms and wouldn't have known which drawer Suki's phone was in [Plus, he never would've gone through the trouble of hiding the Chemica Desin and then turning himself in]. And I didn't believe for a second that Suki was the traitor. She fought her own brother and family to help Ian and the gang, developed the technology to help them escape the school, and probably wouldn't be willing to turn herself in. Besides, the only other person who even SAW Gabe's sock-monkey besides Gabe was CJ). I was also very upset at the way that Connor treated Ian and his friends. If Ian was so important and if he and Connor were on the same side, why did Connor leave Ian's gang and the Broken in the dark about everything? Why did he steal all of the maps and documents that Ian and his friends had? Why the HECK didn't he explain what that freakin' picture was that he left? Honestly, how did he expect Ian and his friends to trust him and give him their only Gnome translator when he was only telling them precious little about who he really was, what his group was and what their interests were, and what that school was really meant to do? He was a pretty solid guy, but, all in all, I sort of found myself smiling when Connor was beaten up by the Gnomes, his cries for help unanswered by the cowardly Gabe (who restrained Ian from joining the fight with the all-to-common action flick saying, 'there's nothing more we can do to help him'), and later tortured and 'oriented' to the West Campus. Guilty pleaseure. Call me cruel, but Connor was a jerk to Ian two times (while adamantly stating that the two were fighting on the same side). The side story with Suki was rather interesting (though I did wonder why, if she refused to be taken home, she allowed Shinji to walk her downstairs and lock her in that room; couldn't she have just screamed for Ray to help her or something) and the side story with finally finding an escape route kept me hanging on. I did wonder why Gabe's hypersuasion didn't work on Headmaster (maybe it was because he saw it coming; Ian did point out that Gabe's hypersuasion doesn't work on people who know to expect it). Finally, I was very shocked to find out that Headmaster was Cj's dad (I'm embarrased to say it, but I sort of staked odds that he was Ian's father by illigitimate relations or something like that). I saw her betrayal coming (and I supppose that when she said that her father wouldn't like it if she left the school it should have served as some sort of tip-off that her dad was someone who was endeared to the school) but that was the one twist that I wouldn't have expected.moreless
