Storyline

Richard's party suddenly meets the remaining members of Kahlan's order, who flee general Demmin Nass's troops to the coast to take refuge on a magically protected island to avoid extinction. To Kahlan's amazement it includes her presumed-dead sister Dennee, who very soon gives birth. Instead of the long-hoped new confessor, it's a boy, who by tradition must by ritually sacrificed out of fear he'll grow up as a mighty monster. Richard refuses to allow such cruelty and gets the confession-spellbound father Finn on his side, The order's mother resorts to confessing Zed to enforce execution, but Richard still puts up a formidable fight for innocent life.

FInally!

Though the show completely breaks away from the books on many levels, it has paid off in the best way with (what I am sure is a shared fantasy) Kahlan playing the role of Mord Sith! Freaking awesome! Some of the acting was a little stiff, but the story is progressing smoothly and actually tries to introduce some of the touchier issues that come up in the books. I know die-hard fanboys will complain that the show doesn't handle these issues (like why a male confessor can't live) in a half-hearted fashion, but this is regular cable, not HBO or Showtime where you can have carte blanche to cuss and show gratuitous adult themes. I think the creative team is doing a great job. I hope this show stays around for a while.
