Well, that just was straight out of left field. Okay not really but still. Here is a little paragraph about the happenings for tonight:
Aaron and Cynthia escape! Charlie prefects the art of tracking while snarky. Miles really needs to find a doctor and so does Rachel. Bass makes some interesting choices. Tom and Jason see things that cannot be unseen.
You want more? You know what to do…
The Big Damn Heroes
So the whole opening could have been compressed down because really, if you didn’t realize that Aaron and Cynthia got away then you are like at stealth level for avoiding spoilers. Anyway Miles, Charlie, and Rachel find out that everyone in the compound they are about to storm is knocked out cold. They go him and find that Aaron and Cynthia are gone. However, Charlie has become a super tracker, way better than Miles, um when did that happen, and is able to get them on the path to Aaron and Cynthia.
They are almost caught by the Patriots, after Charlie looses the trail, but Monroe shows up and lends them a helping sword. Monroe wants to part ways though right away but Miles won’t let him (if it’s love…). Apparently, Miles is about to kick it because of the way his arm is NOT healing. Monroe is forced to help them get Aaron back because he wants access to his son.
They manage to track down where Aaron and Cynthia are, but they do not put eyes on the pair. Aaron is too busy having some moments stolen out of Six Sense to notice that his friends are around to rescue him. It turns out that the nanotech is starting to get some sentience, in the form of a creepy kid. Aaron however has not seen enough movies to know that you never piss of the creepy kid, never! He also asks the Tech not to kill anymore and to LEAVE HIM ALONE. As a result when the Patriots do storm the high school that they are hiding out in the Tech is not around to help out. Horn wants Aaron to use the Tech to heal him, but since Aaron told the Tech to buzz off Horn ends up putting a bullet in Cynthia instead. So Aaron tells the Tech to kill everyone. The Tech complies and then is like, you be psycho, peace out sucker! Not before asking the simple question, why didn’t you just ask me to heal [Cynthia], ouch! Aaron is just making all kinds of bad judgment calls. On the plus side, well depending how you look at it, Calvin Horn is dead.
While this is going on our heroes, plus Monroe, split up to try to find Aaron. Did I mention that they never find him? THEY NEVER FIND HIM! Second worst rescue this week (see my Once Upon A Time Review for the WORST rescue this week). Miles and Rachel go one way, oh FYI, SHE WAS CHEATING ON HER HUSBAND WITH MILES! AKA MILES’S BROTHER! Ben (the now dead brother) should so come back and haut them. So they end up corned in a room, Miles is basically dying because of the infection in his hand, and tells Rachel it has always been her. He’s not dead yet though. Although since Aaron sent the Tech away I think that arm is not going to stick around.
Charlie and Monroe do a fairly good job of trying to find Aaron and Cynthia. Until they basically get cornered and while she is on one side of a hallway and he is on the other Monroe pulls a vanishing act. Seriously, he gives her this look and then is gone. Don’t worry, he came back, just in time too. Charlie, even though she is a good tracker, apparently is also very good at getting captured by people that she does not want to be captured by. So while Charlie and Monroe are fighting off the Patriots in one room and Miles and Rachel are doing the same in the other all of the Patriots in the building just catch on fire. No big deal, it probably won’t happen again since the Tech left Aaron, right? Maybe? Yeah, I’m not holding my breath for that one.
This is going to be super quick. The Neville boys board a train that is heading to the White House so that they can kill the President. While on the train Tom sees Julia, his wife that is supposed to be died! She is alive and just as power crazy as ever. She ended up marrying another man to survive, but that doesn’t stop her from jumping Tom’s bones the second they see each other. After their tryst in the train car Julia tells Tom not to kill the President because they still can get everything they ever wanted. Personally I think you all should just run away together and be a family but hey if you want to go for complete domination that is your call. Jason also gets to see his mom, aww cute! But was I the only thinking, oh man he is going to kill her new husband before the train stops? That would totally put a kink in Julia and Tom’s government domination plan.
Overall Score: B
Not as mainly good one-liners tonight so that brought down the score. This episode moved fairly quickly and there was only one needless and annoying flashback so props for that. I really don’t think I needed to see the Nevilles in this episode but maybe I am wrong. Aaron, seriously, someone needs to help him reevaluate his life choices if he is going to stay on this show. Oh but since the Tech left him does that mean he can die now? Hmm…. This may not be a popular opinion but frankly I am glad that Aaron killed Horn, it was about damn time!
If you are a Miloe Shipper: Seriously, Monroe stayed because he saw sick Miles was. THERE WAS TOUCHING! And Monroe called Miles a puppy.
If you are a Charloe Shipper: You came back. Seriously, that is all you needed for me to write, okay. YOU CAME BACK!
If you ship Miles and Rachel: They are canon, even though it makes me super frustrated because she was married and to his brother no less. IT IS/WAS YOUR BROTHER MILES!
If you are a Jarlie Shipper: Smile boy, we’re going to the White House. Yeah, I just liked that line. Sorry, hanging in there, maybe Texas is the next stop after the White House.
