Did You Know?


In Eleven's room at the hideout a neon sign can be clearly seen in the background, which reads "spiritual advisor". This is the role Kali takes for Eleven in two ways: First, she gives her advice on how to harness her telekinetic power, when Eleven tries to move the train. Second, Kali advises Eleven to kill the people who wronged them, in order to make peace with the their troubled past. Since Eleven doesn't fully agree with Kali, it is appropriate that the neon sign is partly broken. See more »


When Eleven/Jane reaches out to touch Kali's face, most angles show her right hand outstretched, but in the first shot of eleven touching Kali's face, it's her left hand. See more »


Kali: They cannot save you, Jane!
Eleven: No. But I can save them.

User Reviews

A weak filler episode made weaker because of its placement.
28 October 2017 | by leonthesleepySee all my reviews

This is basically X Men-Third class. Its entirely predictable, and executed poorly with boring new characters and weak direction. Millie Brown does the best she can, but what is up with the rest of the new cast? Its almost as if the show ventured into a cheap spin off, the character "Eight" is laughable at best, and the actress really pales in comparison with the main cast. She lacks any menacing presence, or vulnerability. Its a flat "green screen acting and monotone line deliver" performance. Worse, there is nothing interesting about the entire scenario. It feels inconsequential. A forced tie in just to create extra spin off scenarios.

The worst part is that it acts as a filler to what has been a mostly great season. It breaks any form of momentum we had from the previous cliffhanger just to forcibly give Eleven an episode of her own. Her character, and the show deserves better than this shoddy and generic story line.
