Storyline

Mark has captured Sarah and taken her to the Castor compound, where she is housed in a cell adjacent to Helena's. However, it's not quite the reunion that Sarah was hoping in that Helena will not forgive Sarah for turning her in, she unaware that it was actually Mrs. S who made the arrangement. Although Helena will not open up, Sarah knows that Helena knows the detailed workings of the compound and thus probably knows a way out. Beyond Helena, Sarah has to decide who she can trust, the list of people who includes Paul. Meanwhile, Cosima goes on her date with Shay, the two who met on an Internet dating site. There seems to be a connection between the two. Cosima, however, is unaware that there are more people on their date than meets the eye.

Finally getting intense, but still not as interesting.

We're already half way through the season, and it feels like almost nothing has happened yet (at least compared to last season's speed). This episode finally regained the intensity of the previous season, with a nail-biting escape sequence, but the intrigue of new information is gone. It just feels like nothing is having any impact in the long run. The show is still enjoyable, but it doesn't feel meaningful in the same way anymore. Hopefully it will take an upswing in the second half. There does appear to be some form of strange twist at the end of the episode, so hopefully that will send things moving towards revelations.

In my previous review, I said that Gracie was fifteen. This was a guess, as no-one had said her age on the show and I couldn't find it on the wiki. In this episode, it is revealed that she is eighteen. I still stand by the context in which I cited her age, but it was a mistake.
