Review - The Event Season 1 Episode 2 To Keep Us Safe

Well, The Event sure is fast at providing answers. We got definitive confirmation where the plane went (Arizona), who's holding Leila (Vicky), who the prisoners are (aliens), who Simon is (an alien), and when the aliens were first discovered (1944). We also get a cool scene at the end, dead bodies of those from the plane.

What The Event doesn't do is provide an ounce of emotion. The constant time switches attempt for some pathos, but come off misplaced, coming after a series of intense scenes at a different time period. For now, the mystery is enough to keep me watching, but I wonder exactly how much story the writers have.

Score: 8.3/10
