Serial Killers and Unions, Galore!
5 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very good episode. I would say the best so far of the series, although I will say things are progressing on the central arc very quickly. It seems we will soon know exactly what happened the 4400 which to me is going to take some mystery out of the show.

This episode features a serial killer who has the ability to manipulate other people's minds to do his bidding. A very cool concept indeed! This episode didn't feature as much about Shawn and Danny and Nikki but Maia does play a vital role in this episode, marking the second time that powers can be used for good instead of evil.

The relationship between Richard and Lily gets steamy and there is an alien in Lily which is sweet. Hopefully we get some serious alien birth stories going. At this point, the show is making these aliens out to be some kind of experimenting, pre-destiny deciding creator like creatures, although there is room for interpretation.

Best part of the entire episode is the addition of Billy Campbell to the cast as Jordan Collier. Clearly, he is a badass and that will be a fun story to watch.
