Did You Know?


When young Emily and her mother are driving through the countryside, the caption says "West Berlin, 1984". However, they arrive at Schloß Sacrow near Potsdam, which was in East Germany at the time, as was the nearby Heilandskirche, where she hides her mother's ring. Both buildings were inaccessible to the public before the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. See more »

I don't know what my other has done.
29 July 2019 | by dreamingescapistSee all my reviews

The second season has really started going. I guess the family problems are put behind and we can now concentrate on the spy games. Clare, Quayle, and Prime Howard must unite against the common enemy. Emily Burton investigates her other, while Emily Silk makes some discoveries about her past. Alpha Howard is in the Echo and he must face his other's past deeds. He is also put under psychological tests to establish the point were two Howards's lives went on different paths. At last, we are taken to a path that finally must lead us to the origin story of the beginning of the two Worlds.

Again another fast-paced episode that leaves enough room to makes sense in all the confusion that the two first episodes might have raised.
