As Bo continues to be pursued, and even risks exposure, Tate finds himself once again thinking about abandoning her.
7 April 2014 | by (http://www.amari-sali.blogspot.com/) – See all my reviews

For this episode, the side story seems very ingrained with what can be considered the main plot of the show. But, I must admit that while I do feel emotionally invested, I do begin to feel my investment in the show slipping. Be it because everything feels like it is on a loop, or just because I really do feel like this is a reboot of Touch, I'm starting to think my love of this show maybe more based on nostalgia of Touch's first season, more so than what I think this show could uniquely offer. Assuming it can do anything unique.

Topic 1: A leak – Ben & Taran

The majority of the episode deals with what is the episode's side story. Thus far, the side stories for the show have been open and closed stories, which had very little to do with the main plot. As for this episode though, a journalist named Ben ends up getting information on Project Orchestra, from an unnamed source who happens to be Zoe. Now, with Ben being the type of journalist who just as much wants to put out a relevant story as he wants a Pulitzer, he damn near seems ready to risk his safety, his girlfriend's, and their unborn baby in order to meet his contact.

Thankfully though, Bo finds herself attracted to Taran, without the butterfly mind you, and she forces not just Tate, but Winter's whole team to help the two from Mr. Z, one of Roman's henchmen, as well as Joshua. Leading to why Zoe perhaps decided to leak information to Ben in the first place. Seemingly, the longer she is around him, the more she sees why Winter left. And perhaps, like Ben, she thinks exposure is safer than secrets.

However, with Bo, in Winter's opinion, not being ready to be exposed, all she does is end up risking Joshua's life. You see, we have seen Bo, thus far, flip vehicles, dismantle guns, and destroy inanimate objects, but when she tries to protect Ben from Joshua's mind wiping ability, she ends up hurting him. This event causes a lot of guilt within her, and it really leads me to think Winter needs to do more than emotionally support this child. I mean, if you are going to present yourself as the Professor X to Roman's Magneto, at least help the child hone her powers, rather than hoping she learns to do so on her own.

Topic 2: What Are You Running From, Much Less Too? - Tate

Leading to us needing to speak on her father Tate. From what it seems, Tate is getting that itch to leave again and is even calling people up from his past to meet with him. Who are these people? Well thanks to Channing shutting down his phone call, all we learn is that they are likely associated with why he was in prison. But, even after Winter warns him that he can just as easily put him back into jail as he busted him out, Tate still has ideas of escaping. In fact, after Ben and Taran are saved by Winter's team, and Ben leaves the safety of their hideout to meet his contact, because he thinks exposing Bo will allow normalcy for him and his family, Tate thinks of using Taran to escape. He presents this whole idea of him helping her run away, all the while seeking to do so himself. Before this is executed though, Bo plants the seed that he has to bring Taran and Ben back together, much less go get her turtle Stanley which was left when they escaped from Roman's men.

This leads to the most interesting part of Tate's story which deals with two things: The first being Taran analyzing him, as she packs her stuff, and trying to understand why he talks about Bo, and treats Bo, like he does. When Tate talks about his involvement with Winter, and relationship with Bo, he speaks like he is a prisoner, and dealing with Bo is like hearing nails on a chalkboard, and yet his goodbye to her had a tinge of sadness. Such sadness perhaps can be explained as, despite him caring for Bo, he feels expendable. Bo has Winter and access to his resources, so what is Tate there for? Which, Taran understands to a point, but then she points out how despite all the resources Winter has, Bo asked Tate specifically to bring back Stanley.

Leaving us with the second interesting moment which happens after Taran and Ben have had their story concluded, and they are relatively safe. Tate goes over to Bo's bed and they have a little chat. Bo currently is still feeling guilt for hurting Joshua and asks Tate if he is scared of her? He says no, but she feels he is and says everyone does eventually. And, to me, the way she says this is almost like how she would say "everyone leaves eventually." Making it seem that perhaps the reason why Bo likes Tate, outside of him being her dad, is because he doesn't treat her the same way Winter and Channing does. He doesn't talk to her like some dainty princess, or the second coming of Jesus Christ. He just treats her like how any kid would be treated by an adult. But, with this fear in his emotions, perhaps she feels like now things will change. So, rather than taint her first experience with normalcy, she breaks Tate's bracelet that Channing put on him and grants him freedom. Leaving us to wonder if he may truly abandon her.
