This series is going to be very exciting. I still don't like the character Isabelle. Or to be honest, I don't like the actress. Even the character Shawn is not interesting anymore. The little girl Maya isn't significant in the story. That is a pity.

Old characters are brought up when it is necessary, like the wife and son of Tom Baldwin. Or even Collier who has rised out of the dead. How this happened is not explained.

The writers of this sery can do anything without giving an explanation. That is a big mistake. How can a baby turn into a woman in just a day? How can a man rise from the dead? How can this baby/woman who has great powers not harm this man who she had killed in the first place? I liked the old man actor who played the father of Piersahl. It's a waste to give such an actor a small role in the episode. What a better sery this had been if the right actors/actresses had been in the right place. For example, this actress who plays the wife of Tom Baldwin, talks very weird. She cannot pronounce the letter "m" from Tom correctly. But if she was given the role of Isabelle (despite of the flaws in this character), she would have done a better job.

To make a sery a hit, you must make the characters interesting, every time! Like in the series friends. There are just 6 people who have to make themselves interesting.

In this sery there are to many characters. It is hard to make yourself interesting this way. The little girl Maya has not enough space to pull this off. The little cute face of her is just not enough.

I wonder what will happen in the last episode.
