An episode like I haven't seen in years!
30 July 2015 | by ddracineSee all my reviews

Everybody knows by now that this show's main plot is all about attacking this monster of a conglomerate named E Corp to save the world or so to speak, erase all debts. This idea has been driving the show and every episode was bringing the viewer a little closer to this goal. But what happens when an episode just suddenly makes a huge turnaround and presents something totally unrelated to that one goal? Well it becomes the best episode in the season so far if you ask me!

This sixth episode starts in giving us a headache trying to figure out what happened between the last minute of the last episode and that moment but by the time we get our answer, we are catapulted into a fast-paced thriller as we follow Elliot struggling to find a solution to free Vera out of prison in 24 hours.

Angela's appearances are slowing the rhythm but if they end up helping building the main plot it would have been worth it as in this episode, nothing is done to harm E Corp. This whole hour is given to let Vera shine as a dangerous antagonist and "dangerous" is underrating him. We have also some refreshing glimpses of Tyrell's weaknesses which make him lose some credibility while also giving him a more human side.

The scenes all blend one into another with ease but it is for the last scene that this episode will be remembered as one of the best one ever produced. This is the type of scene that makes you hold your throat in disgust, feel your heart beat hard with anger and makes you cry with the deepest sadness you ever felt in a show. Well I know I did and no other show gave me this kind of emotions in a long long time.

It deserved a 10/10 and those that say otherwise can go back to watch Disney Channel. For those who doubted the potential of this show after the second episode (Or the third but let's not talk about that one yeah?) hopefully this sixth episode will prove you right to keep watching.
