Becoming (#1.4)
16 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The show continues with an outstanding episode. The idea of the serial killer returning and using his powers to make other men do his "work" is superb. All the actors involved in it also did an amazing job

It is interesting to see the discussions on the purpose of the returnees. All of the ones who died before seem to have done a positive change with their actions, but what is the purpose of Oliver Knox? Are all purposes positive? Do they all have one?

It was also great to find out that Shawn was not the one who was supposed to be abducted. This has a potential for a very interesting storyline and twist in this show.

And it is also interesting to see the reaction of the public to the 4400. Seems like a critique of our society Barbra Yates is like one of those scums we have on TV (for example Nancy Grace) who like to fuel up the idiot society, get them paranoid and nasty without even understanding what is going on.
