Review - The Event Season 1 Episode 22 Arrival

I was debating whether to watch The Event or Sanctuary first, and eventually decided on The Event even though I like Sanctuary a lot more. With The Event ending, I just had to see how terribly the show would end. "Arrival" went as expected with no surprising twists and regular stuff all around. There's a shootout, a hidden recording, and a litany of tropes, none of which have a lick of tension. Then the Event comes and the alien planet pops up beside Earth. Cool, I guess, but wouldn't the gravitational force wreak havoc on everything?

If there was one thing to take from The Event, it would be that Taylor Cole is nice to look at and hopefully got more exposure. Sure, the writers made her character into a one-note action chick who doesn't even say anything significant to Sean other than "thank you" (I'm advocating for a love triangle again!), but Taylor Cole looked really good the entire time and wasn't bad at acting either.

Score: 5.0/10
