Synopsis: When news reaches Pasiphae of Ariadne and Jason’s impending wedding, she is terrified that Atlantis will be all but lost to her, and resolves to do all she can to stop the union, no matter the cost.
Review: Atlantis returns this weekend with the second half of its second and final season.
On the up side the show did return with a strong storyline, which did more to move the storyline along than the latter part of the previous half of the season.
All starts with reason to celebrate because Ariadne and Jason can finally be together pending the blessing of the gods, but Pasiphae has strong views on this and sets a plan into motion to smash their pending union, and it is a truly expensive plan with a casualty that will surely anger the gods.
We witness some fantastic acting in a story defining moment between Sarah Parish’s Pasiphae and the Oracle, who once again is played to wonderful effect by Juliet Stevenson in what is her final appearance on the show.
We also see the return of Jemima Rooper as Medusa, whose loneliness has driven her to such a desperate state that she will do anything to break the curse.
The whole story for this episode could have come straight from the pages of a Greek Tragedy of old because the writers continue to drive the knife in and twist the plot further.
Some fantastic acting performances by both Sarah Parish and Juliet Stevenson and Mark Addy also puts in a great performance as Hercules, who is driven to keeping secrets from his best friends in order to protect the seemingly doomed Medusa.
- Great acting from Sarah Parish and Juliette Stevenson
