"Till We Have Built Jerusalem" Season 4, Episode 7

Being a former citizen of "Charm City" (Baltimore), and a current citizen of "The City of Brotherly Love" (Philadelphia), I can't say that the thought of a place called "Promise City" really appeals to me. Blighted, polluted, crime-ridden places tend to have hopeful names, and Jordan's new compound - lovely as it may one day be - is somewhat less than a shining beacon. On the other hand, if there's anyone who can make the situation better, it's probably him. Just to refresh everyone's memory, here's our situation: Jordan has taken over the worst part of Seattle to transform into the precursor to heaven on earth. Anyone with an ability is welcome to join him, but if he gets attacked, he expands the perimeter by 100 percent. Did I mention that the perimeter markers cause massive headaches in those who aren't Promicin-positive, therefore displacing "normal" people? What a generous guy. But even with all of this, Maia thinks he's a good guy. I, however, am even less sure than I have been in the past. Granted, Maia is never wrong (though how Ben and Diana are supposed to get married now is anyone's guess), but there could be any number of interpretations for the future she sees going black in the event of Jordan's death. And as Diana said, "If he's one of the good guys, what does that make me?" We're at the halfway point of the season, and so this episode was about setting up the showdown that's going to comprise the last six episodes. Considering this, it's tough to really say too much about it. The only certainty we have is that Jordan is gearing up for a fight, not only against the government but against anyone unwilling to take Promicin - this from a man who said he never wanted to force anyone to take it. Shawn's side of the episode had potential but wasn't really given enough time to develop. He's in an interesting position considering that, in trying to walk the all-inclusive path, he's making himself into an enemy of both sides. While everyone else in his life is taking sides (with the possible exception of Tom), Shawn has effectively placed himself in neutral. Here are some questions to consider as we gear up for the latter half of the season: Where are Tom and Diana going to end up? They work for the government but have a major interest in keeping Promicin-positives (not just 4400s) safe. Also, what are your theories on Maia's vision going dark in the end? show less
