"The Marked" Season 4, Episode 6

In honor of the upcoming Simpsons Movie, can I just say it? Best. Episode. Ever. There was a wonderful, vintage X-Files vibe running the whole way through, complete with Lone Gunmen analogue and everything. Plus, that final shot of Tom staring into the mirror while the evil software CEO proclaimed, "When we need him, he'll be there for us," gave me goose bumps. OK, I admit it: This show has me psyched again in a way that I haven't really been this season. The idea that there are nine other Matthew Rosses out there - 10, if you count Tom - doesn't bode well for our original-recipe 4400s. I'm not sure what it means for the extra-crispies, but I doubt it'll be all sunshine and rainbows for them either. Plus, I'm going to venture a guess here, but somehow I doubt that Gabriel Hewitt's newly restored health means that he'll change his mind on the 4400, despite the fact that it was Shawn who cured him. In fact, how do we know that Gabriel Hewitt himself isn't one of the Marked? But enough speculation on my part. We were certainly presented with an interesting character in Curtis Peck. I had him down as a crackpot conspiracy theorist (we know that there have been plenty of 4400s in this category) until the scene in his The Marked trailer portraying the final showdown between Isabelle and Matthew. If my memory serves me, the dialogue matched exactly, and we know no one else was a witness to that. Alas, by the end he'd been corrupted by who I can only assume were the Marked, and was off to make more truly terrible movies on a bigger budget. Of course, now that Tom has been Marked (or something), what does this mean for Jordan and Kyle's plans? It seems that they'll attempt to eliminate anyone who tries to hurt the 4400, so that certainly places Tom in a strange category when and if his Marked persona manifests itself. On a related note, I think Kyle's faith in Jordan might be a bit shakier than it was last week. When Collier proclaimed himself innocent in Hewitt's stroke, Kyle said he believed him, but not with the same conviction that we've heard from Kyle previously. Not that it isn't possible for Hewitt to have had a stroke naturally, but based on what we've seen Isabelle do when she had her powers, and what Collier did to Graham Holt in this season's premiere, it's hard not to suspect someone of his caliber. As always, I have a couple of questions for all of you for the next week: Do you think the Marked are good or evil in relation to Jordan and friends? Which side do you think will end up in control of Tom? Also, don't forget to check out Curtis Peck's MySpace page for any possible clues regarding the Marked. show less
