You don't look like you're in high school
7 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This actually isn't bad.The show still seems to have a hard time deciding which characters and plot lines to follow through on:Crick is killed off(and how did Ultra suddenly know where he was?), while Morgan is kept alive with no real explanation for her survival, despite being a far less interesting character and despite the Tomorrow People having to be pretty stupid to allow a potential fifth columnist in their midst.

John's captivity doesn't last long but that's probably a good thing. There's some interesting character dynamics and everyone's a lot more likable than they often are:John is less aloof and uncaring than usual, so hopefully the revelation of his secret will see some much needed character development, and Cara's got her more compassionate personality back this week, while it's nice to see the always likable Astrid getting to interact with the other characters.(Although as with the underwhelming response from the others to John's news, there's some dodgy character work:Would the reclusive Tomorrow People really agree to turning up at Stephen's house so readily?And Astrid's schizophrenic reaction to Cara suggests someone remembered between drafts that they've met and added in some extra lines.) Stephen's clinging to John's lie even when he knows it's a lie feels a bit desperate but leads to the nicely played final scenes.The Founder has the capacity to be a decent villain but turning Jedekiah into his lapdog damages his credibility without really making him sympathetic.

The overall feeling is of a written by committee episode that misses important character moments and has things happen simply because the plot demands it(Morgan just happening to be at the place Stephen finds a photo of...and apparently chucking a tree at someone doesn't count as a direct kill now), but there's a superior treatment of the characters that means it's actually an enjoyable way to pass the time and there's a feeling that things are actually moving forward for once.
