We finally get an alien who can tell us about their home planet and what happened, but can he be trusted?
I’m with Isobel (Lily Cowles) that some of what he’s saying has to be true. All the pieces seem to fit nicely together, but that doesn’t mean he’s not having fun with us.
Louise (Cassandra Jean Amell) and Nora (Kayla Ewell) did keep Jones alive all this time just like they did with Michael (Michael Vlamis), Isobel and Max (Nathan Parsons). So it could be true. And Michael just put a piece together—he’s the dictator’s son. But I don’t believe that Michael is the only one with abilities that have no bounds. Isobel is quite powerful herself.
I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that Max is a clone. I know this is a sci-fi show, but Max is this complete and vibrant person. He wanted answers about his past, about his parents, and now it turns out Louise and Nora may have created him. That’s also hard to swallow. They were brilliant women, but as Michael said, they don’t seem like the people to create Frankenstein.
Unfortunately, all they have is what Jones is saying. While Michael being the heir, seems to be accurate, Jones is hard to trust. I’m leaning towards most of what he’s saying is true, but he’s still trying to manipulate them.
Maria (Heather Hemmens) is also desperately trying to search for answers. She wants to know who gets murdered in her vision. I thought she had shot and killed one of the men that attacked her, but apparently, it’s when she’s scared that she gets her visions. I hoped there would be a way to hone her abilities, but this is way more dangerous than previously thought. Sure, we’re going to get much more excitement from it, but we’re also going to be a lot more scared.
In comes Kyle (Michael Trevino), of course, helping her not kill herself. She’s going to use adrenaline to find out more in another vision. At least she has a doctor there to help keep her safe. We can’t have her jumping off of buildings when Max’s powers aren’t up to snuff.
Searching for answers seemed to be the theme of the episode. Alex (Tyler Blackburn) also thought he was going after answers. Instead, Deep Sky put him into an escape room as a test to join their organization. All he had to do was figure out the other man in the room was lying while the air was being sucked out of the room. Of course, our Alex passed the test, but I was worried about him.
And now he has an excellent project of trying to figure out what a machine does that they haven’t been able to figure out after working on it for 50 years. Plus, it only turns on every 47 days for one minute. I totally believe Alex has this, but that is one of the most challenging assignments ever.
Not only did we get some cute scenes with Liz (Jeanine Mason) and Heath (Steven Krueger), but he also convinced her to go back to Roswell! I said it would be no more than three episodes before she’d be back. I want more Liz and Heath scenes, though, or at least scenes with Heath in them. Steven is so cute. His character made Liz scrambled eggs and ash so she wouldn’t feel used in the morning. This was so sweet. It’s seriously the thought that counts.
She’s made a date with him, but it’s highly doubtful she’ll show now that she’s seen, Max. Especially when she finds out, he’s dying.
We’ve been waiting for this reunion for one year. But, unfortunately, it was somber, and neither character was ready. Not what Echo fans would like, but probably exactly how it was always going to play out. But one thing is for sure. They still love each other.
