Nina Jarvis: You'll be happy to hear that Mr. Collier's anonymous source is anonymous no more. Agent Hubbard will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Diana Skouris: So what about Collier?
Tom Baldwin: The guy bought national secrets on the black market.
Nina Jarvis: Hey, I'm sure we'd all like to see Collier charged with treason, but it's unlikely. I doubt we'll be able to trace the payments directly to him.

Wake-Up Call (#2.1)
16 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The second season starts just as greatly as the first one ended.

The subplot in this episode is brilliant. It keeps one on the edge wondering what is happening. To that there is also some comedy factor added when everyone, including the hospital staff and the agents starts working on the tower. The result of building it is pretty cool and promising.

It just makes me wonder why the heads of their team were against the building of the tower. It seems that they would be cooperating with the 4400 since we were told that they are working for the best of the human kind. Are they not so sure about it? Can we be sure that what was the truth?

It is also interesting how the 4400 community seems to be a cult. Yes, they really act as if it was one, but at the same time it seems like what they are saying is true since this is what the people from the future told to Tom through his son (as long as we believe them).

What I also like i to see the story of Maia. She is now adopted by Diana and yet we can see her having some problems getting used to the present. For example because she believes that Frank Sinatra is hot.

The part of Richard, Lily and the baby running away from the crazy, religious rednecks is very exciting. Especially the scene where the baby makes them all kill themselves.
