“You’re the best person I’ve ever met.” — Cara to Stephen
Oh boy. It happened. I thought maybe “The Tomorrow People” would shy away from the love triangle of chaos, but they went there. There’s no question about the chemistry — or arguably lack there of depending on who you now root for — between Cara and Stephen. They kissed. Cara professed her feelings to Stephen (refer to above quote), and now we have to make a brutal decision, CW watchers. Which ship are you going to follow? Ah, the hardest part of a love triangle is picking a side.
Let’s get to the good, great, and brilliant moments of the night.
The Good: A new tomorrow person enters the mix. Piper, the sister to Stephen’s Ultra mentor has been on the run. And when she “breaks out” (the term they use when their powers develop), Stephen vows to save her before Ultra learns about her existence. The girls on this show could seriously demolish the boys. Piper now joins a cast of brilliantly fierce women, and a highlight was her hustling Russell and Stephen with a bit of pool.
Not so good: By saving Piper, her sister subsequently dies. What I loved most about Stephen’s mentor was that she was never all bad. So far he’s had a good crop of people willing to show him the ropes, not torment him like his uncle is willing do to.
The Great: Cara and Stephen kiss. This could very well be considered bad if you’re a John Young fan. I am heavily Team John, so I didn’t necessarily love the beginning of a triangle romance. In some ways, I couldn’t believe Stephen would betray John by kissing Cara. And I couldn’t believe Cara would practically cheat on John. But I wonder if this is a setup to allow John to grow as a character. He had trouble opening up to Cara, and that no doubt led her to fall more deeply towards Stephen. Still, my heart breaks for John since he’s on the road, unaware of what exactly went down between two people he wholly trusts.
The Brilliant: Russell’s origins are uncovered! The flashbacks to each character’s origins have been some of the best episodes yet. Russell had a tumultuous relationship with his father that wasn’t always black and white. Even though his dad was strict, he was willing to take a beating for his son. As fangirls always say, So many feels!
