A new virus hits Forthaven,striking down Lily and Tipper among others, and Tate fears it is the host's response to the city's signals. He and Stella plan to set up a transmitter to jam the signals carrying the virus but Berger tries to prevent them by explaining that it will stop the transporter with which he has been in touch from arriving from Earth. Berger tries to blame the outbreak on the A.C.s,especially Fleur and reveals that Fleur is an A.C. created in a niche project on Earth with some of Tate's DNA. Cass helps Fleur to escape to the desert,telling her that on Earth he worked for murderous gangsters but turned them in in exchange for his new identity. He delivers her to Rudi and the A.C.s set out on a trek for new territory. Tate resigns as president,handing over to Jack,who has Berger arrested and allows the transmitter to be created. Tipper and Lily are among those who recover as the virus is prevented,the transporter landing in the desert outside Forthaven. Written by don @ minifie-1

More questions than answers
14 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As the first series of Outcasts comes to a conclusion the viewer is left with more questions than answers; we still don't know the nature of the intelligence present on Carpathia nor do we learn much more about the ship that Julius Berger has been communicating with. Instead this episode deals with an outbreak of a new strain of the illness that killed many of the children several years before. Stella is certain that it has something to do with DNA and believes that by broadcasting the right DNA sequence it can be stopped; Berger meanwhile is trying to convince Jack to go out and exterminate the ACs claiming that they are to blame. That isn't the only thing Berger is up to; he learns that Fleur is also an AC, something that even she didn't know. Cass does everything he can to help Fleur and Tate makes a rather surprising announcement at the council meeting Berger has called.

This episode was not bad but it felt far more like the penultimate episode than a series finale; while Berger may have had his plans temporarily thwarted the ship with his unknown associates aboard is still coming the Carpathia and the native intelligence still poses a threat to the people of Forthaven. Given the lack of a proper conclusion I hope a second series gets commissioned as despite its flaws I rather enjoyed this. As in previous episodes the acting was fairly solid and for the most part the characters are interesting although Berger is now so obviously evil he couldn't be any worse if he grew horns!
