June 17, 2007: The Extra Crispies Season 4, Episode 1

I suppose it's time to add Seattle to my running list of the most dangerous places on television. As if Meredith Grey and Co. weren't bad enough, we were almost subject to growing legions of 16-year-olds with really bad taste in clothing and music (and gym class activities - thumb wrestling, anyone?). But seriously, this Promicin distribution is shaping up to be a catastrophe in and of itself. The past three seasons have all been about controlling a limited group of people with unpredictable powers, but now the whole premise has been turned on its head. What do you do when people are given a choice in the matter and that group expands? The 4400 were all torn away from their families, and many seemed at best ambivalent and at worst downright scared regarding their abilities. Remember Maia just wanting to be a normal kid two years ago? Graham Holt reveled in his power and grew more ambitious by the minute. Basically, the third-season finale ("50/50") and last night's opener pushed the reset button on the show. Think about it: Tom's lost someone important to him again (once Kyle, now Alana), one of our major characters just came out of a coma, and we're yet again unsure whether or not Jordan is good for the world. We left off last year with a sense that the benefits would outweigh the risks of passing out Promicin, but this season is presenting us with a much darker view of events. Even Collier seemed unsure, for perhaps the first time ever. But by the end of the episode, I was left with the sinking feeling that Jordan is now more convinced of his role as a savior than ever; that maybe he even saw Graham Holt as a means to reassure people that he is their "true" leader. "The world doesn't need you anymore, it has me," sounded more like a threat than a declaration. He's also more than willing to cast aside those who helped make him (poor Tess and Kevin!), which may hurt him later on. I wouldn't want to be on the other side of Tess in any condition, especially if, like Marco says, Jordan doesn't have any control over the original 4400. Where do we stand with everyone else? Diana, Maia and Ben are headed back to Seattle, thank god. Not that San Sebastian doesn't look gorgeous, and sure, Marco could save the NTAC scenes all by himself - at least judging by the IM I got from a friend saying, "So much Marco love," in the middle of the episode - but I need my Tom-and-Diana relationship. Speaking of missing pieces, what happened to Richard, Nina Jarvis and Dennis? And who is this mysterious Cassie Dunleavy? A future agent à la Matthew or Sarah Rutledge? A nefarious influence with motives of her own? Consider me intrigued. So heading into this season we have a lot of new information to consider. How many of you would take Promicin knowing the risks? Sure, I'd love to dictate everyone's favorite music (and it would totally be Ben Folds), but I'm not the risk-taking type. If anyone missed the opener, or just wants to watch it again, it's available in full on the official website. show less
