Enigmatic and horrific story, Peter and Olivia awkward reunion, brilliant intertwined writing, touching performances, Waltercimore
15 January 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Surgical and disturbing. Two words to describe the aftermath of Entrada. The last time I felt so uncomfortable was after watching Dexter season 5 premiere, My Bad. The "Dexland" scene was just incredibly shocking and smart. Dark humor at its finest. Revealing what Marionette is about would definitely spoil its intrigue. Indeed until the very end you shouldn't know what the villain of the week is up to. An other episodic investigation ? Yes and even if the script is actually based on a well known story there were plenty of things to appeal the audience. First there was something quite enigmatic about what was going on. In fact we almost discovered the facts with the characters involved. Second some scenes were shocking and disgusting but as often Walter still managed to make us smile with his twisted humor and unconventional methods. Third and not least the writers focused on Peter and Olivia. Now she's back they had to deal with what happened between him and Fauxlivia. Anna Torv's performance was conflicted and emotional. I still believe she could have done a better job but the apartment scene was almost heartbreaking. Moreover her interaction with Peter finally gave Joshua Jackson the opportunity to play out of his comfort zone. But the strongest pro was by the far the brilliant way their own story was connected to the episodic one. Many subtle references linked both arcs and unmasked the cerebral mechanics behind our beloved puppets. I also remember a touching scene between Olivia and her boss, Philip Broyles. Lance Reddick's performance was bold, as always, and after what happened in Entrada he should grow on you even more. As expected the end was the inevitable cliffhanger before the winter break but after all what happened in nine episodes I can't see anyone who could be disappointed by the outcome so far. From its chaotic machine to its characters the show has a lot to offer and if the upcoming episodes are as good as most of the ones we have seen so far then it's going to be one hell of a season !
