[Spoilers from episode 14 below]

“What do you know about the bonds of blood?” — Twin

Major things happened this episode. Jedikiah turned from good to crazy. Stephen was called a hero by John. (I snickered at that because, let’s be honest, John is the hero of this tale.) Cara made a declaration of love way too late in the game. And twins. There were slightly evil, genius twins. Gotta love TTP.

Gearing up for the episode tonight, let’s discuss the good, the great and brilliant moments from last Wednesday.

The Good: Marla doesn’t know anything about Ultra’s real motives. Stephen’s mom did a brilliant job at hiding her powers, but in doing so, she also became somewhat unaware of the truth around her. Ultra is bad. Marla didn’t really understand this until John spelled it out for her. And she gave the okay for her son to intern there.

I loved this scene with John and Marla in the kitchen, and I loved it even more when John was describing Stephen to her. But as John called Stephen a hero, it just made me realize how truly selfless John is inside this world. He can’t see beyond his own flaws (killing Stephen’s dad) to recognize that he’s the biggest hero of all.

The Great: Cara confronts John and tells him to come back to the lair. Heart-wrenching. Even though I’ve been rooting for Cara to open her eyes a little bit, I thought John did the right thing by dismissing her. She needs to prove to him that she loves him. Words aren’t going to cut it, not after kicking him out with nowhere to go.

Side Note: John drunk is hilarious. Even more so when Stephen has to take care of him. The budding bromance is very adorable.

The Brilliant: Jedikiah goes crazy. First off, his character is taking me on an emotional roller coaster. Do I love him or hate him? Can I ever make up my mind? Can you? When he captured a human twin, whose other twin was a tomorrow person, he decided to try to test on the human to see if he could give him powers. It’s never worked before, but that didn’t stop Jed.

What was so brilliant was Jedikiah’s speech about the human brother being lesser, never being able to surpass the brother with powers. As Stephen gave him a quick glance, we all knew Jed was talking about himself with his brother, Roger.

What we didn’t know: Roger has been entombed in Jed’s Ultra office. Which begs the question, is Jedikiah really crazy? My mind is spinning. That’s for sure.

So now it’s your turn to weigh in on the episode. Since Cara opened up to John, I’m curious to see if you think he made the right decision by walking out. Answer in the poll below!
