Trivia

The violin prodigy is a minor focal point in this episode. There are 4 strings on a violin, and when tuning, standard practice is to tune the A-string to 440 hz, then tune the rest of them using the A-string as the reference. See more »

Suffer the Children (#2.4)
17 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I like how in this show they keep on showing the stupidity of our society. There were idiot people wanting to know the names of 4400 and list leaked out, people just grabbing someone's saliva to lose weight without a second thought and now we have paranoid idiot parents who see everything as child abuse. The woman got the talent out in the kids, that must mean child abuse! Great idea. I just wish they have done something more out of it, the ending was a slightly bit disappointing.

The story of Kyle should burst out any time soon and I am really looking forward to it.

I liked Lily's dream, felt pretty bad for her as she woke up. It was also nice to see her ex husband helping her, hope their relationship will move on into a friendly basis. Isabella accepting Jordan was a great scene that again makes us wonder. So maybe this whole "cult" really isn't that bad and it is really done for the best of humans?

I am not sure what to make out of the subplot with the homeless yet. In a way it felt a little unnecessary but maybe it is just because I don't what will happen now.
