Rex forces his boss Friedkin to confess that, in setting him up, he was obeying orders from a mysterious source. By confiscating his phone Rex's investigations lead to an empty warehouse belonging to Phi-Corp, a global pharmaceutical firm, containing vast amounts of pain killers. Rex's wound reopens and he seeks medical help - and more - from Vera Juarez, who has been invited by Jilly Kitzinger to attend a Phi-Corp meeting. Vera takes Gwen and they hear the announcement that all pain-killers will legally be dispensed without prescriptions in future. This is endorsed by Danes to popular approval.

The plot thickens
29 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having arrived in the United States Jack and Gwen find them selves on the run with CIA agents Rex and Esther. It isn't long before they are trying to turn the tables on the CIA; this leads Rex to confront his erstwhile boss to try to find out who wanted knowledge of Torchwood eliminated. It also leads them to a warehouse stocked with vast amounts of painkillers; all made by the same company; PhiCorp. With almost perfect timing Rex's 'friend' Dr Juarez is invited to meet up with somebody from PhiCorp giving the Torchwood team a way in.

Three episodes in and the drama isn't letting up; there are plenty of tense moments and Jack even manages to get beaten up! This being Torchwood there are a couple of 'adult' moments involving Rex and Dr. Juarez and Jack and a barman. Don't worry; given his new mortal status Jack insists on protection! The acting continues to be pretty solid; I particularly liked Lauren Ambrose's performance as PhiCorp PA Jilly Kitzinger; of course it helped that her red hair and scarlet coat stand out so well amongst the rest of the more sombrely dressed cast. Bill Pullman also does well as the odious Oswald Danes a man who seems to be despised and idolised in equal measure.
