Review - Legend of the Seeker Season 2 Episode 8 Light

"Light" was an episode that bridged the beginning arc of the season of finding the rift, and the next arc of Richard splitting with the group to learn wizard powers. I like how there wasn't a direct jump into the next arc immediately, and let us breathe before starting anything major.

Though there was lots of exposition, the episode was uneven, and quickly rushed ahead in the beginning with Richard's departure, and slowing down significantly since there was so little story to tell.

Denna kidnaps Zedd, and you'd think that would make for an interesting story, but all she wants to do is use Zedd to do magic for her. Denna doesn't have any plans other than that, and they goes travel the entire episode talking. It appears that she has a slight change of heart at the end, but is shot from afar by Cara an falls off a cliff into a river.

Richard goes with the Sisters of Light to the Old World, because his headaches from his growing wizard power are getting too severe. Once there, he kills someone invisible creatures who were wizards who changed themselves in order to fight better. He gives the locals hope, and continues on his journey.

Kahlan randomly had a brand new dark leather outfit and darker makeup around her eyes. Why? I saw an interview and Bridget Regan said she was tripping over the white dress. It's a magical land, so anything goes.

Score: 8.6/10
