Darius (an outstanding performance by George Harris) boards the Tulip to help Lucretia (tip-top work by Claudette Roche) inform Dante (a terrifically fierce and furious Michael Pare) about the Divinity Cluster. The vehement distrust and animosity Dante and Percy (a marvelously spunky Tanya Allen) feel towards Lucretia reaches a cracking fever pitch here; the angry confrontations between Dante and Lucretia in particular burn with a certain raw energy. The scenes with Darius explaining the Divinity Cluster's importance likewise seriously smoke. Moreover, this episode makes smart use of clips from previous episodes and offers a strong exploration on the themes of trust, deceit, and betrayal that gives the whole show an extra potent dramatic punch. The lively cinematography and moody score further keep things buzzing. And the surprise grim ending packs a truly jolting kick to the guts.
