When Jordan said, "We're not the enemy, we're salvation," do you think he was including Isabelle? That last scene certainly set up some big questions for the show. If, as Cassie kept insisting, that was where it all starts, are we really not out of the woods with Ms. Tyler yet? I can't believe she'll manage to elude the law for too long after the police find the van that transported her wrecked. Call me a dope, but somehow I think she'll regain her powers and then she'll be - dun dun dun - back with a vengeance. Actually, I found myself wondering before her escape whether that whole future crisis had been averted at the end of last season, and if so, where was the show going to go? Those crazy Promicin-puffing producers must have been reading my mind. Audrey Parker's story seemed so familiar (it was like a certain Star Trek: Enterprise episode crossed with that Michael Keaton movie about ghosts), but it was nevertheless engaging. The poor woman got killed for being rich and arthritic (though at least her good deed went unpunished - sort of), but at least she inspired people to go out and live their lives when she couldn't physically do so herself. She also got Diana to stop and think about her own choices. She seems more ambivalent than ever about whether it's worth it to be part of NTAC. As she put it, "My entire life just feels like a bunch of compromises all strung together." She and Tom certainly seem more separate than they used to be, and though I like the relationship forming between Tom and Megan, I still can't help but pine for Tom and Diana. On the other hand, Shawn's change has definitely been for the better. He's simply grown up, and perhaps not helming an international organization (not to mention not having to deal with Isabelle) has helped him become more self-assured. It's not about changing the world for him anymore - it's just about doing what he can to help people. It's great to see the show back on track after last week. Audrey Parker must have had a patriotic spirit (excruciating pun not intended), because she kept quoting Ben Franklin. In her memory, I hope you all have a wonderful Fourth of July! show less
