Review - The Event Season 1 Episode 9 Your World to Take

The Event began by bringing up a bunch of questions and answering them to a degree, and it kept the show going even when the characters weren't interesting. However, nine episodes in and the show has fallen in a bunch of answered questioned about characters I don't care about.

The main plot follows Thomas and his alien GF Isabel trying to overthrow Sophia. Unfortunately, Thomas is turned in liquid (figuratively, of course) and Sophia forces Isabel to shoot herself in the leg to show loyalty. Is there a greater reason why Isabel didn't turn the gun on Sophia? She seemed hellbent on getting power, and she could have shot Sophia dead right there.

Sean and Leila spend another episode running around after finding a girl who'd been at the facility with Samantha before escaping. Some guy shows up and chases them into a field, presumably to get the girl, but he's actually after Leila.

What does this all mean? I have no fucking clue. Week after week there are new characters, new locations, new schemes, and the main characters are mixed around in there. In an episode which doesn't explicitly reveal anything, there's not much to consider on a large scale.

Score: 7.0/10
