Great Episode
18 February 2014 | by galet09See all my reviews

Just started watching this series recently. Am doing catch up right now and I have to say this third episode of the series was a winner.

I love the acting of Luke Mitchell as John Young as well as Robbie Amell as Stephen Jameson.

Unlike the other reviewers I had no problem with the end of this episode. Luke said Kill or be Killed if he sees Jed on the street in the future. What he was saying is this is war.

But to kill him at that moment wouldn't have been much of a fair fight now would it? As for him not telling the other TP's makes a whole lot of sense to me. But I'm pretty sure they will find out in the future.

As for Jed's motivation regarding the kill or be killed issue, he explains in this episode. That he wanted a perfect TP. One that COULD kill, because he wants to use that perfect TP for his own purposes by them being on his team. So his early confession of why he hates TP's because they would eventually become killers was a lie. He really wants the ones he influences or trains to become killers for his own benefit. As for the rest who won't work or join his team he will kill them. It's pretty simple to me.

Mark Pellegrino by the way is perfect as Jedikiah in the show. Watched him as Lucifer in Supernatural and also briefly in Being Human for the first season. He does the bad guy SO well.

Regarding more on the plot, I loved the special effect when John had to disarm the 5 bombs. That was pretty awesome to watch. All in all a very interesting episode. Looking forward to the next.
