Jones lay in wait, waiting for his opportunity to get out of the cage. It doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy, but it also doesn’t mean he’s a good guy either.
The look on Jones’s face makes me think he’s a bad guy. Though, I do think a lot of what he’s told them is the truth. Isobel (Lily Cowles) is an empath, which makes sense. Michael (Michael Vlamis) is the dictator’s son. But we also saw more manipulation when he told Isobel that there was nothing that she could do about her boys, that they were drifting apart. They are family. There’s always a way to bring the family back together.
But if Jones and Max (Nathan Parsons) are stronger together, why did he just leave Max locked up? Michael and Isobel liked getting answers about where they came from so much that they were sucked in, even if much of what he said was true.
The Triad, as Isobel called them, wasn’t the only ones dealing with their past. Alex (Tyler Blackburn) was confronted with his father and trying to take a different path from him. He got a great speech from his brother Gregory (Tanner Novlan) to start listening to himself and not his father’s voice in his head.
That led to the radio that Kyle got from his father lighting up and playing the music when the machine that Alex is trying to figure out came on. Kyle (Michael Trevino) heard his dad’s voice. His father is even deeper into this whole thing than he could imagine. Maybe Kyle’s radio can help Alex figure out what his machine is. It seems like it’s a radio. Perhaps someone is trying to make contact?
Kyle will learn more about his father while Alex tries to get out of his father’s shadow, which was good timing since Michael needed to hear that he can be anyone he wants to be.
Finally, we got the Malex scene we’ve been waiting for, and it was everything and more. And Micheal gave him one of the rocks, which may have helped get a better response from the machine. So we may still be waiting for one of our fave couples, but they are still there for each other.
We also got the Liz (Jeanine Mason) and Max reunion, and it broke our hearts. You see how much Max loves her, but he keeps pushing her away to keep her safe. Maybe the right call with Jones getting free, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.
We also got multiple amazing scenes with Kyle, as per usual. First, with him finding out about Max being a clone. He was understandably mad after he’s been trying to do everything possible to save Max. This information could have helped him. Then, telling Liz what she did was wrong because it was. She never got consent from Max to use his DNA. She needed to be put in her place. I love her passion and ambition, but she crossed the line. We also got a sweet scene with Isobel telling Kyle to take care of himself, that he deserves to be happy. He really does. It hurts to think that he feels empty. But I’m just so impressed with the range of emotions and how Michael Trevino steals every scene. He may be complaining that people have forgotten he has a day job, but I’m here for any excuse to get him on screen.
Is Michael Trevino also impressing you in every scene? Tweet me @MandyTTCarr or comment below.
