The Event Review: "Turnabout"

at . Comments

Even though we did not get many, if any, questions answered, there was never a dull moment on "Turnabout."

Since last week's two-hour return, I wondered when Vicky would show her face again and tonight we got our answer.

Gabrielle Carteris on The Event

Looks like this femme fatale became quite the scaredy cat. I can't blame her, though, since she made it clear to Dempsey that she was the traitor and ever since had been living on the run. Her son and mother were nowhere to be seen, but that doesn't mean they weren't with her.

The fact that Sean grew a pair and took action completely surprised me. He's such a nice guy who doesn't look like he possesses the gusto to pull off half the stunts he had been involved in.

I will tell you one thing: it wasn't who I expected to see holding a gun to Vicky's head, but I was happily surprised with this outcome. Finally, Sean may get Vicky to spill the beans on who Dempsey really is and what that mysterious company she worked for is all about.

Michael dropped his daughters off at Diane's (Gabrielle Carteris!!!) house to keep them safe. Diane's role so far seems pretty pointless, but who doesn't love a good Andrea Zuckerman cameo?

I feel that Leila will get the answers she has been searching for if she continues to hammer Diane. It would be pointless to proceed to question her father; he seems pretty intent on keeping her and Sam out of the loop.

The President had an eye opening dream that made him decide it was time to act instead of react. He went against his gut instinct and trusted Sophia. Of course, Thomas was be five steps ahead and knew his mother would warn the President to move the uranium, thus foiling any type of trust Martinez may have had for Sophia.

Now that Thomas seized the uranium, he has the ability to create a porthole for his fellow kind to come to our world. How on earth will Sophia be able to stop him? She can't even locate him. Really, as a leader of her kind, what power and quick senses does she have?

Sophia wasn't even keen enough to realize that her prisoner escaped. How could she not have heard all that banging around? If it wasn't for Michael returning in the nick of time, Sophia would have been a goner.

I was happy to see that Blake didn't forget what happened to him at Inostranka. He spoke up at a critical point that helped determine the President's decision to trust Sophia and her followers. Hopefully, Blake will be able to help Martinez realize that there are some good aliens that do want what is best for us natives.

Catherine's bubbly charm and sparkling personality was on a hiatus this week. Didn't the President still owe her a piece of truth? I wonder what her reaction will be when he informs her of the magnitude of the current event.

We don't have the luxury to grieve, we have to find him (Thomas).

Sophia

We own these homes and the land they sit on. But, this is nothing. Once we use the porthole to bring our people here, then we will own it all.

Thomas
