Another day, another episode to review. Episode 6 starts the back half of the show, and it starts it with a bang. Beau, played by Aaron Roman Weiner, is our focus this week, picking up directly after the end of Episode 5. Beau is unable to process the loss of his son, paired with his regrets about being a poor father, and it pushes him to the edge. Pair that with Trina’s revelation at the end of episode 5, and he loses it a bit throughout episode 6.
We continue to see more of Dusty and Cass, as well as a couple of our other main characters, and I really enjoy this style. The tunnel vision focus on one character definitely helped develop our protagonists in a hurry, but the last two episodes have been a much more enjoyable watch.
While the over-arching story is still murky, this episode has a clear focus and a straight-forward plot. Beau is upset, and he tries to rectify this. It’s a solid episode, and we get more background on how the MORPHO machine is affecting society, but in a more low-key way.
The episode again ends by shifting the focus from one character to another. Beau’s plot comes to some-what of a close, and we get a revelation about Giorgio that will surely lead into the following episode. It’s a solid episode this week, nothing overly special, but our characters and the story mesh together. One of my favourite episodes so far, but I feel myself wanting more from the show each week.
