The most suspenseful 45 minutes you will ever see..
19 September 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

I do not make that claim lightly. I have seen a lot of TV (some might say TOO MUCH TV) and I cannot think of any single episode of a series that carries so much punch. Literally and figuratively.

No, it not merely the blood-fight between Anna and Olek that makes this special (although it did bring to mind the duel between Basil Rathbone and Tyronne Power in Mark of Zorro, said to be the longest sword fight in film, and I think this is one of the longest male/female beatdowns in TV, film, or anywhere).

What makes this episode special is how the writers, when cutting away from one high-tension scene, instead of bringing the viewer relief or pause, simply cut to another hi-tension scene.

They are here giving a clinic in how to play all your plot arcs at once, like some sort of visual symphony.


As an aside, I noticed that the two casting directors for this series are both female, which lends credibility to the idea that women have a better eye for spotting female beauty than men. Just as I was noticing that the two actresses who are getting most of the screen time in this amazing episode are both stunning, we get a quick walk-on by Odette Annabel, yet another drop-dead gorgeous actress. Beautiful women and passionate love/fight scenes are both sort of a Cinemax trademark but honestly this episode pretty much sets the bar.
