Synopsis: In ‘Kill Them All’ the imprisoned crew members at Hyperion 8 must negotiate attempted assasinations, extraditions, and behind-the-scenes machinations as they plot escape.

Review: Picking up from where left week left off ‘Kill Them All’ sees Two, Three, Four and Five doing whatever they can to make their escape.

With some help from Nyx and some late added help from Six. They all manage to cobble a workable plan together, but time is against them.

We get a notable guest appearance from Inga Cadranel who plays Alicia Reynaud who is a high ranking official who has seemingly played a hidden hand in aiding the crews escape, but to what ends. 

Some fun moments in this. One in particular is Anthony Lemke as Three who turns on his inner smart ass when being interrogated.

Another funny moment is Five walking around with a gun that is twice as big as she is and some how managing to blast her way through to the escape hatch and meet the others.

The Android is still none co-operative with the authorities, which is great to see. After all those that remember the first season will tell you that its never good to mess with the android.

Lots more action in this weeks offering and a short loved sword duel between four and Misaki Han-Shireikan who had been sent to take him home for execution. The duel gets cut short by a girl with a very, very big gun.

More seeds and sewn for a much bigger conspiracy plot, which makes for a potentially more interesting story than last year. I look forward to seeing how all this unfolds, but have to wonder if One’s doppelganger will reconnect with the crew. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Some solid acting performances and a fantastic prison riot make for a fun watch.
