The big question last week was “How on Earth will Marshal Younger wrap everything up?” Of course, after Exit aired, I can’t see why he was doubted, but that’s not the point. And he didn’t disappoint. The two or three stories were connected quite well; the ‘curse’, Yosef, Eugene’s parents, the tower, etc. Ok, it was more like 5.

As is becoming the norm this season, the music, sound effects, music, acting, and music were fantastic (and the music was great^_^).

One big complaint I foresee people putting forward is that at the end, we find out Leonard is alive, but we don’t get to see/hear him. And that’s just fine with me. It doesn’t hurt to have loose ends in this series; it gives the writers material for later, and gives us something to look forward to. And I have no doubt those future episodes will be just as good.

I also kinda wished that we could’ve heard from that superstitious pilot again, but that’s ok.

And of course, there’s Katrina. As I’ve stated before, I’m still a little miffed that Pam Hayden was appearently permanently replaced, but AW is growing on me. She did pretty well this time around.

Another thing that stood out was Chris at the end. In recent years, her little scpeail was, well, disappointing. In this episode (as with the rest of the season), it was great.

All this to say, it appears that Prisoners of Fear will continue the tradition of epic 3-parters. And considering I’ve stopped hearing people talk about classic AIO in the midst of these terrific episodes leads me to the conclusion that we’ve entered another classic era. Well done.

5/5

-Jonathan

Assuming you're still in the state I think you are, let's go by your time since it's already Sat there.

It's 2 hours and 21 minutes until Sat. here....


I'll give this one a 4.75 (why didn't I round up and vote 5 instead of four? ](*,) ). Jolly good ep, and I can't wait to see what next week brings.

Well it's Saturday on the East Coast (but since Jonathan isn't on the east coast I still remain curious)

I love the fact that Leonard is alive with no immediate plan to bring him back (he could come back anytime!!!) Odyssey writers haven't done this since Blackaard :D (unless you count Jack Allen ;))

I completely agree, I used to be totally against this "new" Katrina but Audrey is really growing on me and I think I might be able to get used to Katrina Meltsner (whereas I will never get used to Paul Herlinger as Whit :()

I too, think that Odyssey just might be coming out with a fantastic Album/Season

Good start staff!!!

While in some respects I reviewed I did more of a chronicling of Eugene's search for his family while reviewing this episode. Als because I'm to lazy to copy and paste click here for my observations.

This was over all a great way to wrap up the three-parter. It answered all my questions about the curse and Lenard Meltsner. It's great to have Eugene back in AIO and the new Katrina Is getting better, although she still doesn't seem quite like the old one yet, but I hope that will change.

First I loved the ep. and give it a five. I also have to say I was right ;) with my assumption that Eugene's dad was still alive. \:D/

Second, I have a clarifying question. Did Mr. MEltsner specifically request Eugene and Katrina for this project via the mission's board, or were they randomly chosen by the board?

*if* they were chosen specifically by L.m. Then that means a couple of interesting things. 1. He has been folowing Eugene's life closely enough to know that he is a beleiver, AND that he married KAtarina. 2. He is most likely a believer also.

These both raise the question as to *why* L.M. never let Eugene know he was there, but also who DID know and never told him? Unlesss L.M. is a citizen of Odyssey, and then it just get's too weird and my imagination goes into overdrive.

I could be, and probably am on my speculative answers to my question up there, but if anyone has an answer, let me know. Thanks

JF
