I was not Expecting such great episode
24 November 2017 | by megarudaSee all my reviews

I do not even recall what happened the episode before and the episode before that 1.6 and 1.7 were just boring, on the other hand, thread of eXtinction 1.8 was just great storytelling that you rarely see on a superhero t.v. show..

The plot gives enough screen time and plot points to all the characters, even when it focuses on the Strucker family altho this time it is great and not just complaining and running. The beginning, middle and ending are pretty clear, it is a really fine and on point great storytelling. There is one epic moment in this episode and a great reveal of a bigger episode to come, it is also somewhat emotional and most of character decisions make sense.

I hope this is just the start of a string of well done scripts and not just a lucky one.
