White Light (#1.5)
16 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A great season finale because it gives us some answers that give us more understanding of the situation but also adds more questions to wonder about the next season to come.

The scene at the beach with tom and Kyle is greatly done. Here Kyle, who as Maia said is "the answer to everything" tells us why all the people were taken and that the ones who took them weren't aliens, but humans from the future who try to save humanity with the help of all those people. It did seem a bit silly. Like the fact that Tom was surprised that "it will all end", why does it seem surprising to him? The fact that the humanity started going to oblivion with us is a bit silly as well, human before us weren't great either. But maybe there will more to it later that will make me see it. And besides that it was a great scene. The way that everyone around them just sees them in a white light without knowing what is going on, while they are at the same beach during the day (future?) was a great element. And we also got some worry when Kyle gets shot, and yet at the end he comes back as if it was still the night when him and Shawn were drinking beer on that beach.

One also wonders what is so special about this beach. Nikki wondering why it was chosen to drop them off and also the fact that "Kyle" really wanted to go there to communicate with Tom makes one think that this area is special in some way.

It is also interesting what is the agenda of Jordan. It seems that what he does goes beyond helping fellow 4400. His interest in controlling everything and in Lily's baby is very strong. Now we can also wonder what will happen in the next season now that Shawn moved into that community too.
