March 19, 2007: Nature's Clones Season 5, Episode 18

Just take a moment and imagine how awesome it would have been had the CBS promos department not totally ruined the twist on this episode? When Beth Selby (aka Leslie Bibb No. 3) showed up 15 minutes before the end, it was less than shocking. Nevertheless, I was thoroughly creeped out. The whole conceit is kind of disturbing (if not downright unhygienic!): triplets who exchange everything in their lives to the point where they're really all living one life. You marry one (Ashley), impregnate the next (Beth) and get killed by the last one (Kayla) - all without ever knowing the difference. To Dominic Whitford's credit, the sisters Ashley, Kayla and Beth did not seem to have any discernible differences in personality, though to be fair, one could argue that Beth seemed the most distinct, in that she seemed to actually care about another human being, and was generally more nervous than the other two. Leslie Bibb did an admirable job portraying all three, even if it didn't exactly flex her acting chops, while Colin Ferguson ( Eureka) pretty much just had to stand there and look ruggedly gorgeous in his underwritten role. In something that may come as a minor shock to those of you who are regular readers, I actually wish we could have seen more of the B-plot: the psychopathic assistant. That seemed to be introduced and dismissed more quickly than it might have been. On the other hand, had they dwelled, perhaps I'd be criticizing it for being too disjointed an episode. We're still seeing Delko recover, which I'm actually appreciating. It seems like we always need someone making mistakes in order to add some extra dramatic element, and though his mistakes aren't nearly as egregious as, say, Natalia's were earlier this season, it adds a layer of depth to someone we know to be capable otherwise. Other than that, we didn't really get much from our team last night. You may all disagree with me, but all things considered, I enjoyed this episode. Yes, I wish hadn't known one of the major plot twists going into it, but even knowing that, some parts still shocked me. That opening fall from the balcony onto the ice sculpture was, er, graphic to say the least, as was the plastic-surgery montage. This show certainly put its own distinctive mark on the murderous-siblings story. When was the last time outside of sci-fi that we saw two guest stars play five look-alike characters? Ah, and how can I forget to mention how much I loved last night's H-line? Alexx: "That's cold-blooded, Horatio." Horatio: "It's as cold... as ice." And with that, I leave you until the next new episode, though I'm not totally sure when that is. Stay classy! show less
