While not as strong as last week’s Rudy centric instalment this is a decent episode which gives most of the gang to shine in some way or other. Abby embarks on an affair with the sweet smelling Laura, but it isn't long before she see what she believes to be a long lost memory from her childhood that leads her to find out that Laura is more than just a soul mate. I was a little disappointed that the ‘terrifying force’ that this relationship releases promised in both the press release and promo turned out to not actually be in much of the story overall. But this does instead give plenty of time over to discover who, or what, Abby really is in a satisfying manner, so it’s only a minor grumble.
Finn and Greg’s subplot is a little strange however, their relationship doesn't really mirror or compliment the main story in the way you would normally expect with a secondary plot devise most of the time, but it is fun to watch it evolve. Both actors really sink their teeth into the material, and the awkwardness which slowly builds up to a very sinister moment in which Finn must do the inevitable in order to stop the probation workers advances is performed superbly.
I know some were believing that Sam in the promos was either Simon or Nathan before the series started, but it seems that he could actually be the new superhoodie! I'm still not sure what to make of his character at the moment; is he really what he says he is or is Rudy Two placing too much trust in what he has interpreted from the jumper. I really would like a surprise twist with the knitted jumper idea, it doesn't really come up this week but it does looks as though that it will be explored more in episode 4 when we will meet an electrician with a super power. Surely this is the person on the bottom right of the jumper?
