Review - Sanctuary Season 2 Episode 4 Hero

Killing off Ashley was a horrible creative decision by the producers that they'll have to stick with. Ashley brought a certain dangerous quality to the show and brought out Magnus's other side. Ashley was one of the better characters in the show and it was inexplicable why the producers wanted to get rid of her. The explanation on ScifiWire is thin and probably a smokescreen for backroom dealings. Taking their word at face value clearly, they have no clue what they are doing. I love this idiotic quote from Damian Kindler.

We felt it was a very bold, kind of brave choice to make, and the more we looked at it, the more we felt it was a really strong choice, ... the strongest choice.

I guess he thinks death is the only way to perpetuate a story. Not only did he kill a character, but also a main character that was liked by the fans. Notice how he uses the word "bold" and "strong." Neither really mean anything, but I like how he used these ambiguous words that can be construed in any way.

As if that wasn't enough, they brought in Kate Freelander who is already despised and is quite annoying. In 'Hero' she lied some more and helped her loser brother. Wow, is that supposed to make us like her? I like how the writers tried to make her a less evil character, by not making her part of the Cabal. Instead, she's a heartless mercenary without scruples.

Another quote from Damian Kindler that proves he is clueless.

...we really felt it would have the deepest, most dramatic impact on the series and the characters.

And did we see any impact? Nope. 'Hero' was a silly episode with a geek enhanced by abnormal bugs. Sure it was a pretty good episode with the superhero and the giant bug, but the activity at the Sanctuary seemed normalized sans Ashley. She could have been in the episode and it would have been better.

Score: 8.6/10

I wholeheartedly agree with you. Killing off Ashley was a terrible move for this series. In addition to that, it seems like they have lost focus. The show was just starting to follow an interesting linear pattern towards the end of the first season, and they have officially stopped it in it's tracks.
