very interesting but
19 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very interesting and exciting episode to watch, but like many aspects of the show has some problems with credulity. Syndey runs into this huge room and stops with a look of astonishment and fear. The camera show a huge red ball which we know from the flashbacks to the earlier episode when she destroyed the Mueller Device (prototype?) is filled with water. Now from the camera angle it appears huge, but from the panning around the room as Sydney escapes the bad guys, we come to see doesn't fill a tenth of the room. Yet Sydney (idiotically!!) says, I'm going to have to swim out of here. Within that room the water might come to her knees (certainly no more than the waist). Yet miraculously the water is sufficient to not only flood that whole room but all the hallways she runs down and submerge Vaughn so that we are led to wonder whether he survives or drowns. Sorry, but that is ridiculous. There might be an inch or two reach that door, but it is physically impossible for it to drown him.
