This week’s episode of The Tomorrow People gave us an insight on how Cara and John first met, a potential love interest for Astrid and deception among The Tomorrow People and Ultra. Now that we have reached the 15th episode, we’re still a long way from the finale (two months, I believe), this show has enough to leave us with a cliff hanger in between. The biggest one so far: Will Stephen find his dad’s body which is being hidden by his dear uncle Jedikiah? This question is still in the air ready to be answered.
Back to this episode, in a flashback we see how John and Cara meet when she tries to steal his watch on a subway, before this John witnessed Cara stealing a man’s phone.
The Tomorrow People in their hideout are missing John, even Charlotte who John taught to control her massive telepathic ability, but John is reluctant to return after he made Stephen French toast at his house where he’s been staying for the duration of two or three episodes (their relationship – John and Stephen’s – is developing nicely)
In the meantime, Julian (re-watch episode 11 – Rumble – to refresh your memory of who he is) returns. He just waltzes into Ultra and gets caught, but he tells Jedikiah that he can deliver Cara and her crew (he used the words sewer rats) to Jedikiah. Let’s see … Cara got caught then escaped. So did John. What’s the point to bring them in if they can escape with ease? Well, this is all on Julian’s Tomorrow Person’s shoulders, plus he gets a nasal bomb jammed up his nose as insurance if he doesn’t deliver, he will die. Oh, well!
Astrid returns this episode after nearly getting killed on two occasions, but after these attacks she’s agoraphobic and pretty paranoid, but when Stephen comes to see her, she quickly pushes him out of her house and closes the door in his face. She attempts to connect with Stephen, but she ends up contacting John just after he’s done some exercises in Stephen’s room. They talk, where Astrid confesses to John about her insecurities.
Meanwhile, during late night trip topside for provisions, The Tomorrow People run into Ultra and Julian. Cara faces Julian, they don’t really fight so much as Julian throwing Cara around and choking her to death, not until Stephen arrives and throws a can of soup at Julian’s head to distract him. This forces Stephen to play double agent again pretending he knows nothing but freeing the Tomorrow People. Slick!
Things take a slightly creepy turn when Julian abducts young girl Charlotte, who for some reason wanted to go and see John at the middle of the night. Julian takes a kill squad to find Cara, not before dropping Charlotte off at Ultra so she can be tortured for information. Julian then starts to act pally-pally with Stephen.
Stephen actually went after Julian? Is he that stupid? And it seems that Cara and John are back together, along with Russell, they end up luring Julian and his kill squad into a trap. I might quickly add that the entire kill squad is human which causes Julian some problems. The Tomorrow People trap them behind a bulletproof glass and in a chamber that is rigged with anti-Tomorrow People devices that stops them from using the 3 T’s.
At the same time, Jedikiah is trying to stop the bomb from going off for Julian had threaten to take Stephen down with him, unfortunately the bomb did go off but it took the lives of Julian and the kill squad within the chamber.
I really wanted Julian to be killed – is that bad of me? I was glad when he met his end and he pleaded with Cara to spare him.
In the end, everyone is back at the Tomorrow People’s lair, where John returns, not as the leader, but has gone back home. Stephen is there as well wondering where John and Cara are, he asks Tim the Supercomputer who says that they are indisposed at the moment. Stephen finds remnants of his father’s experiments. One step closer to finding his father, hopefully.
The next episode of The Tomorrow People – Superhero – will air on Monday 17th March. That’s right, it has been moved from Wednesdays to Mondays. Make sure you watch for this will make the difference if there will be a second season.
