It was good but I expected a little more out of it., 25 November 2008
Author: Darwinskid from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

If your one of those people that are still scratching their heads as to why there were toads and monarchs in the promos before this show even aired, this will explain why they exist in such.

After a Massive Dynamic employee is killed and thrown out of a window from the top floor of the building Olivia starts seeing John more often as she gets messages and even an e-mail from him telling her more of the murder. She is lead into her basement to find a box full of toads. Dr. Bishop thinks that toads could've been what killed the victim. Because of John Scott haunting her and the possibility of her finding more clues Olivia has Dr. Bishop put her in the tank once more, but with more power, drugs, etc. The experiment succeeds and she starts to relive some of John's memories, two of them-Their first date and a secret meeting between John, the victim, and two other fellow regarding Massive Dynamic. With two being dead( She witnesses John kill one of them after the other two left) Olivia and Charlie go after their only lead-Geroge( Played by Yul Vazquez). Once they capture him like a trapped rat he tells Olivia some dirt on Massive Dynamic. In the meantime Peter has his own agenda as he deals with an old lady friend and someone who's threatening her.

I had high hopes for this episode, but I was a bit disappointed by it. Don't get me wrong, the good totally outweighed the bad here but I felt the first act needed more work, especially the opening sequence, I felt the victim's entrance into the Massive Dynamic should've been more slower paced than fast paced and it would've been nice to have heard his all important presentation to those execs.

Besides that I thought the whole tank sequence was a pretty interesting experience to view, very creepy and eerie, and had a nice dark atmosphere to it. It was also nice to see more of this father-daughter-like relationship between Dr. Bishop and Olivia start to grow.

I also liked the guest appearance by Yul Vazquez, his role isn't bigger than four scenes at least but it was nice to see him on this show.

Oh and yes, there was a nice little twist at the end, and involves both George and...John. I'll stop there...

Overall, this probably won't make it to my favorite episode list but I thought it was a good episode nonetheless.

Hopefully the next episode will be much better.
