Great., 19 September 2008
Author: habrapoesia from United States

This episode demonstrates that the show operates beyond a monster-of-the-week level. While that element exists, the story presented this hour is fully tied to the story of the first episode. This is true not only in the sense that the situation presented is part of The Pattern; in fact, the actual circumstances tie to the histories of the characters. We don't feel as though we've entered a world relevant only to this hour of television.

The plot being investigated is interesting, and while some dialogue is a bit wooden, I was overall very engaged. The narrative doesn't dwell too long on Olivia's angst over John, but her feelings are instead connected both to her investigation of the case and to the nature and goals of her character; they mesh perfectly with all facets of her search for truth, a concept highlighted by an exciting dialogue between Olivia and Ms. Sharp.

Once again, the series' weakest point is its dialogue. But the way the story is put together--and the elements that comprise that story--are very strong.
