Slower than the Pilot
4 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally! This is kinda the style of show I was hoping for. Taking the same style as shows like X-Files. The investigators (Tom and Diana) of the story take on one story an episode and help develop overall character arcs. This is the classic set up and I was afraid this show was going to miss the mark.

We follow a fella who is of course one of the 4400 returnees. He has supernatural strength and decides to clean up his old neighborhood. He eventually meets his demise but this is the first time we see one of the gifted 4400 using their new found powers for good. I did find the ending to be a bit too cheesy for my liking but its all good.

We do see that something weird is going on with the baby of Lily and there appears to be some type of development in the relationship between Lily and Richard. Very little development of Maia in this episode, which is strange since I find her to be one of the most fascinating characters yet.

My only complaint is the development of the soap opera style love triangle between brothers Danny and Shawn and Nikki. Of course, I would fight tooth and nail with anybody for Brooke Nevin. This is definitely the best role I have seen Ms. Nevin in.
