Review - Sanctuary Season 2 Episode 9 Penance

This episode was supposed to be the great reunion of Amanda Tapping and Michael Shanks, but it became Kate and Shanks together while the rest of the team looked for them. I still can't figure out why they had to meet in the middle of an alley in the first place, so the whole time, I thought it was stupid that Shanks couldn't just come to the door of the Sanctuary to deliver the fire elemental.

The episode turned into a bore fest of walking around and talking. The story was exceedingly simplistic with many plotholes and I barely felt any urgency. It was really a sad mashup of lazy writing and a terrible story.

The writers are now trying to make us like Kate, so they decided to justify her criminal life by explaining that she saw her father die. As if even Kate realized how ridiculous that is, she decides to stop blaming the incident. So she's just a bad person?

Score: 8.2/10
