Synopsis: In a small country town, the hunt for a missing person finds what looks like an alien invasion.
Review: This episode has a twist, but the twist happens fairly early on in the episode when we learn that the supposed alien invasion is a group of scientist misplaced between their time and our own.
As things unfold we learn that it was part of an experiment by genius scientist Nikola Tesla.
Much like last week the laughs are few in this episode, but it still has some nice light comedic moments, which mostly seem to come from the pairing of Cassandra and Ezekiel.
Baird is pretty much written out of the storyline early on, which allows for Jenkins to take the lead a little more, while what little action is thrown the way of Jake Stone, who also has a little bit of a romance with the towns maintenance lady Mabel Collins (Haley Webb), who turns out to be a part of Tesla’s experiment who was grounded in our reality in order to prepare the way to attempt to put things right.
Haley Webb does a fantastic job of providing a love interest for Stone and Christian Kane is forced to bring his absolute A – game to the table and absolutely has you believing in the romance. You really feel bad for the guy when it ends suddenly and the close of the episode while potentially a little to filled with sentiment for some was a nice note to end on.
One of the few moments of levity in the episode comes close to the end when Baird temporarily takes over Ezekiel Jone’s body in order to beat up one of the bad guys.
It be correct to say that this episode was more science fiction than fantasy, but it was a science fiction story, which had a lot of heart and also had something for the more romantically inclined.
- A nice scientific twist
- Some may find the romance over egged
