This episode kind of feels like it’s the episode for characters we haven’t really seen since season 1 to appear for no other reason than to remind us they exist. Okay, they might serve some purpose in the overall story but if so, the connections they are drawing this episode seem tenuous. Besides, it took me a fair while to remember some of these characters from season 1.
That said, Alisha’s father really needs someone to give him a whack across the back of the head. You’re allowing your daughter to potentially be killed for what purpose? It is quite obvious the other guy is up to no good, he doesn’t even try to hide his ambition.
While I haven’t minded this series, the weak story and lack of focus is increasingly becoming a problem. When it feels like things should be getting clearer and more focussed it actually feels like the opposite is happening and that is frustrating.
