Dominion does it again
27 July 2015 | by tarapaysSee all my reviews

Engaging story lines. Dynamic characters. Beautiful cinematography. Haunting musical score. SyFy's Dominion has it all, and "The Narrow Gate" showcases these qualities like never before.

Fans of the series have long ago come to expect the unexpected from Executive Producer, Vaun Wilmott and his outstanding staff of writers, but the strong emotional base of this episode left many stunned. From the bold determination of Claire, to the bravery of Alex on his hero's journey, to the timeless unbreakable bond of brothers, "The Narrow Gate" is a roller-coaster ride for the heart, as well as the mind.

A brilliant storyline deserves to be told by an equally brilliant cast, and Dominion delivers. Roxanne McKee, Chris Eagan, and Tom Wisdom continue to deliver those heart stopping performances that keep the viewer coming back for more, but Carl Beukes easily stole the show. His heartfelt portrayal showcased his outstanding talent and elevated the series beyond normal expectations. In an episode filled with award worthy performances, Beukes shines brightest.

The themes of honor, sacrifice, vengeance, and betrayal play out against a backdrop of artfully created visual effects and a soundscape that is second to none. Bill Brown's musical brilliance greatly enhances our ability to connect with these characters and experience their emotions on an new level.

"The Narrow Gate" surpasses previous episodes, and leaves viewers anxiously wondering where do we go from here. Only time will tell with this "must watch" series, but we're guaranteed an epic journey.
