  • How do you bring back a former show star who's grown much since the last time? Creatively.

    9.5
    Our heroes faced an undefeated monster. Zixx faced a deranged fan, her worst enemy Jayda, and the fact that Onccalon has regenerated enough to personally be a threat.

    But the big story here is Adam returned!



    Since the start of the season, fans were left wondering what happened to Adam and Griff, and we wished for them (or at least just 1) to guest star. But how would the actor's 2 year age increase be explained?

    The producers found a great way. Don't.



    Instead, Adam's story had him in non-corporeal form and appearing as a staticcy image on a computer screen. Scratchy enough to hide Jamie Johnston's age and his new braces.

    The lack of Jamie in other scenes meant an opportunity to show Zixx fans something we can all relate to: A Zixx Fan!! Complete with a Zixx fan club and trading cards! We also got information that Onccalon's forces are losing battles all over the galaxy.



    We got the backstory of what happened to Adam and Griff; satisfactory for a science fiction show, yet leaving us with more questions about Griff.

    Remarkably, this explains (or at least hints) at Anna's situation in Level 1!



    A great creative episode and very pivotal for the fans, that'll give us a sense of closure.moreless
