Enclave

Synopsis: After uncovering an item that Russell Tan is after, Nicky enlists her entire family to help infiltrate the Enclave, a secret gathering of the world’s elite. Elsewhere, Nicky deals with the fallout of a secret she’s kept from Mia.

 

The Story

Picking up from last week. Nicky discovers some information about another relic that Russell Tan is looking to get a hold of before he comes for Mia. However, the only way they can get a hold of the relic is a Mallet. But in order to get it they have to pull off an impossible heist and infiltrate An Enclave where the world’s elite gather. Adding more intrigue to the plot is the fact that Nicky needs to call on the help of her parents in order for her to pull the job off.

If that isn’t enough. Mia now knows about the secret that Nicky has been keeping from her and confronts her about it.

 

The Acting

It was great to see Tzi Ma and Kheng Hua Tan get more to do in this episode as Nicky’s parents. Especially given that they have kind of been on the sidelines of late. But due to The Enclave needing a new caterer and Nicky needing a replica of the Mallet. Both Jin and Mei-Li Shen get their moments. 

We also get a strong performance from Vanessa Yao as a somewhat frightened and confused Mia.

 

Overall

 

 

The Enclave does a good job of picking up some of the story threads from recent weeks. As we see Russell Tan’s plans to create another Earthquake in San Francisco move forward. The setup of the heist is a lot of fun. As we see Nicky’s parents are called upon to lend their unique skill sets to the pot.

The relationship between Nicky and Mia continues to be somewhat unstable and becomes more so when Mia finds out what Nicky has kept from her. The scene where Nicky is discussing her fears about Mia with her brother is really strong thanks to Mia’s disappointment with her cousin for not talking with her about it.

Overall. Some pretty good plot progression as well as some solid fight choreography. Not a bad episode.
