July 8, 2007: Pants on Fire Season 4, Episode 4

I don't know how everyone else feels, but I've always been an April fan. It's been like a look at the bizarro Diana. Of course, now she's more like Diana-lite - or the female Gary Navarro ( Sharif Atkins' character, who could read minds and was therefore hired by the government). Yes, it was a little like a rehash of that second-season episode, but it seems in keeping with the cyclical nature of this season in the context of the larger mythology of the show. It certainly seems convenient that all of our main characters' loved ones who've taken the shot develop abilities instead of dying (as 50 percent are supposed to), but it's to be expected. In terms of abilities, April sure developed a convenient one. OK, maybe not convenient considering it got her boyfriend killed, but if she can prevent murders by getting corporate bigwigs to confess to hiring hit men to kill whistle-blowers, she's at least contributing positively to society. Even though we knew it was coming, it was still a relief to hear that our other Skouris girl would be staying in Seattle. I'm a little uncertain as to her situation with Ben ( is Maia ever wrong?), but I wouldn't be crushed if they didn't stay together. But let's consider the Baldwin family's side to this episode. Shawn is going to run for city council and seems to have the makings of an excellent politician, and his stand puts him on the same side of the Promicin battle as his uncle. At the same time, Kyle is hiding Isabelle while becoming a fierce defender of Collier's policies. Are Isabelle and Collier on the same side now? Or is this one of those "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" kind of things? I have to admit that I found it surprising that Kyle wouldn't want his father to take the shot. It's understandable that he wouldn't want Tom to be in that other 50 percent of takers, but he's seemed so adamant about his mission that I guess I thought he would go for it without hesitation. Here's something to ponder for next week (pretend you hear that scary truth-telling sound): If you could have April's power, would you use it for personal gain? show less
