The freaks come out at night,  
Painkiller Jane 1.21 "The Beast of Bolnar"

So my predictions from the preview were semi-right; it was Connor that'd gotten attacked, but it was in the beginning/prologue of the episode and he didn't die. Thank God, I really like his character and the team wouldn't be complete without him. Proving once again how misguided the previews are.

Still remaining where they'd been from last week's episode, on the premises of NICO, possibly keeping an eye on the place until it's ensured there are no other malfunctions of the tactics of their staff and whatnot. Though in a small town there is a mysterious force that has all the locals in a fright, apparently a legendary monster comes out at night between the hours of 8pm-9pm and will kill anything and anyone in its path. Connor gets a firsthand experience as he is attacked, but miraculously survives though with deep scars and wounds on him. The team ensemble to find out if this is a Neuro threat, but the reveal is somewhat shocking to their most recent discoverings than before.

What made this episode wasn't the monster legend, but the connection between those Neuros and their genetic makeup. Apparently if a Neuro has a child there's a possibility that the child could inherit some Neuro abilities. Also, Jane's concern over the boy was really touching and convincing, especially the end. We know that she lost her mother, and seeing mother and child reunited again must've been a sentimental moment. I really liked that while the boy was doing these things unconcsiously, projecting the entity from his inner rage from the abuse and neglect he'd been undergoing, that Jane's friendliness and concern was what brought that to save her from almost getting smashed despite the ability to heal of course, but he didn't know that. In a way, Jane can really understand and connect with him on a certain level. I also theorize that the reason why the father was treating him unfairly was because of his mother, who was imprisoned and a Neuro herself, and therefore he found his son somewhat lower than him or anyone else for that matter. Which is unfair and cruel, hence why Jane took pity and wanted to help the poor child.

I have to say I suspected something between the boy and the woman seen earlier in the episode, but I didn't expect this until the last fifteen minutes. Well played.

Only two episodes left, the next one focusing on Andre and I'm guessing the series finale, "Endgame", will be dealing with more than just the usual stuff we've seen, and that it'll end in a bang. If it doesn't I'm going to be very disappointed.


The more previews I see for Bionic Woman, the more I can't wait until it premieres this fall. Does it make me look guilty if I admitted it was primarily for seeing Katee Sackhoff being sexy and evil?

Yeah, I hope they got news of the cancellation early enough to wrap everything up. Unresolved cliffhangers suck. :/

If so, then join the club. :D I mean, I think the show is awesome as a whole but Katee brings it a little something extra. ;)

Exactly. I usually don't mind cliffhangers at times, but since it is cancelled I don't want them to pull a really dramatic cliffhanger (a la BSG S2 finale) because it won't be continued, leaving the people who've been watching the show in a fit of rage going "ARGH! WHY?!" I also don't want something lame, either.

I mean, I think the show is awesome as a whole but Katee brings it a little something extra. ;)

Same here. I was interested by the show before, and already knew I was going to check it out, but knowing that Katee is going to be in it well, made it even MORE special. I am intrigued by the premise and how it'll turn out, but I'm more excited for what Katee'll bring to the table.

* Correction: I meant the S1 finale of BSG, not S2. :S

hey, just thought I'd let you know that I started up audio_room to take off where teh_music stopped. It would be really great if you can tell anyone that would be interested, but you're under no obligation to promote. Thanks!
