Well, folks, if you're a fan of this show, all I can say is you'd better hope there's gonna be a Season 2. As finales go, this one's heavy on action and light on, oh, I don't know, answers? Where does the great big Noah's Ark of monorails go? Is Jackson really alive and well somewhere in the Iderdex labs? Are the sea monsters responsible for the catastrophic East Coast "double tsunami," or are they just taking advantage of some totally tubular waves? And, for the love of all that is holy,
what has become of the talking monkey girl? I'll admit it, that thundering, beastie-filled wall of water is quite possibly the coolest thing we've seen on Surface so far. Well, that and some long-overdue face time with a by-turns irritated, nonchalant and irrepressibly adorable Nim. But the most exciting turn of events happens with a mere 13 minutes left in the season (series?): At long last, our three heroes wind up in the same place at the same time. Naturally, within milliseconds of having met, Crazy-Eyed Rich grabs Miles by the collar and looks positively ready to clean Reptile Boy's clock because, clearly, in the land of Rich, there's nothing that can't be solved by brute force. (See also: beating your way to safety using nothing but a brick.) And it's our fair Dr. Laura who scores the final words of the hour: "It is a new world." Or it might be, anyway, once NBC makes the call. Until then, it's steeple-top limbo for the lot of you.
