In Review: Atlantis – Kin

When our heroes discover that Jason has been captured by Pasiphaes troops, they know they must do all they can to rescue him before he is lost forever.

Synopsis: When our heroes discover that Jason has been captured by Pasiphaes troops, they know they must do all they can to rescue him before he is lost forever.

Review: The story continues pretty much from where it left off last week. Thanks the the betrayal of Icarus Jason has been captured and made to fight as a gladiator, where he remains directly under the evil spell of his mother Pasiphae.

All is not lost however because thanks to the efforts of Pythagoras our heroes have managed to find Jason’s father  Aeson, who has managed to sneak into Atlantis as a corpse bearer and has managed to find Jason.

Meanwhile Pasiphae’s grip on the throne is becoming more and more unstable as even her protege Medea seems to be somewhat disgusted at her queens taste for cruelty.

Again some great performances this week, but hats have to go off to John Hannah who puts in a nice turn as Jason’s father Aeson and has some fantastic scenes.

Sarah Parish remains on form as Pasiphae, but Amy Manson manages to put in a fabulous performance this week as Medea, who seems to be beginning to see that she is on the wrong side of the argument.

Mark Addy, Robert Emms and Aiysha Hart also put in solid performances, but were somewhat sidelined this week to allow Aeson and Jason to have their father son moments.

For most part this episode was set up for what will unfortunately be next weeks series finale. Its to bad that so little happened during the first half of this second season, which was great out the gate, but fell a little flat until the second half of the season picked the pace up again.
