After returning from a three-week hiatus, The Tomorrow People keeps us locked in until the bitter end and gives us a big reveal at the end. Last episode – the 5th February – it was revealed that Stephen’s mother is just like him and her late husband. And this episode was in fact somewhat centred around Roger Jameson who was brought back into the picture.
At the end of this episode, Jedikiah (Mark Pellegrino) brings viewers downs to the underground lair where the body of his elder brother is being held in suspended animation.
Well, as the rest of the episode unfolds one of Jedikiah’s more unsavoury activities is an attempt to transfer the powers from a Tomorrow Person to a regular human being. His chance came when a set of twins who worked in tandem killing people for money who came under the attention of the Tomorrow People and Ultra each catching a twin.
The action of the episode was watching Ultra and the Tomorrow People catching twins.
You could see the gears turning in Jedikiah’s head as his dream was becoming a reality, but Cara (Peyton List) leader of the Tomorrow People, convinced their kindred breakout to turn himself in with the trick that would have him packing heat so he could pass the gun to his brother who could kill Jedikiah – for Tomorrow People can not kill themselves – but Stephen (Robbie Amell) gets in the way and the human twin gets killed in the crossfire.
All the while, Stephen and his mother, Marla, are coming to terms that Marla is a Tomorrow Person and that Luca might be breaking out, but Stephen has to keep this secret safe from his uncle for the time being. While, John (Luke Mitchell) is staying at the Jameson house for the time being since being exiled from the Tomorrow People lair.
This is one of the faster-paced episodes of the season, burning through the 42 minutes rather quickly (I was surprised at how quickly it ended) I really do hope that the show goes past it’s 18-episode run for there is an actual story and plot to the Tomorrow People show, there are many characters whose backgrounds are still a mystery to its dedicated fans. I have hope that we will see more of Stephen, Jedikiah, Cara, John and the whole gang when autumn rolls around.
