Very bad writing, good acting by Summer Glau
21 August 2013 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

I am just adding to the other reviews here and will focus on a very bad blunder by the writers.

The fight scene between Maggie Hoapili (Summer Glau) and Kat Carrigan (can't find her name in credits) is horribly written.

Simply put, if you throw a cold fighter into a pit against a warmed up and fully prepared one of equal skill, the fight is going to be a curb stomp.

This situation is even worse since Hoapili has been tied to a chair previously. Predictably, has gets her shoulder dislocated within 10 seconds from start of the fight (!).

The obvious plot hole here is that people apparently paid quite a bit of money to watch this and I can't imagine a 10 second fight is in any way satisfying to watch.

To make it worse, Carrigan then lets her opponent go and proceeds to lose the fight even though she is apparently a skilled fighter and her opponent is a cripple?! Cringe worthy.

Seriously, the whole "return from the brink of defeat" thing is old and dead and with these two actresses the fight scene could have been epic (SG is incredible in fight scenes and I assume the other girl has some kind of fighting skill for which she was cast).

*** This is not a criticism of the actresses, presumably they had no influence over the scenario.

As for the rest or the episode, Summer Glau does a fine job with her role and the rest of the cast is pretty decent. I found the Lahti/Williams scenes pretty funny to watch.
