“Just when Magnus thought Adam Worth was gone forever, she and Tesla become trapped in a virtual Sanctuary, where they are attacked by an avatar of Worth – who is determined to enter the “real” world.” Quoted from another site.
This blog may contain spoilers, so to those of you who have not seen this episode yet, then I recommend that you stop reading and wait until you’ve seen it. If you don’t mind the tidbits, then keep reading. But you have been warned.
I have to say, any episode where Tesla is involved, it’s going to be fun to watch. But add in the psycho Adam Worth, and we have trouble. What I love about Tesla was his witty, sarcastic, innuendos and come-back remarks. The name calling I found funny especially when he’s referring to Henry. And the fact that he’s trying to get Magnus to bed every chance he can get was his typical nature. And even when they were trapped in the virtual sanctuary world, he was still at it.
Adam on the other hand, being a replicated form of the human aspect, was interesting to see back. With his scruff, which made him look even more evil and devilish, you can’t let your guard down when it came to him. Even though he didn’t know who the human form of Adam really was, it was wiped from memory, but the thought of him reading “stories” from within the computer, was enough to keep you on edge.
If it wasn’t for Tesla messing with the Sanctuary’s security computers, none of this would have happened. But knowing Tesla, he has to be the mischievous one. I think he likes messing with Henry’s things to get a rise out of him. But who knows for sure. Nonetheless, I loved this episode.
But what I did find disconcerting was the fact that we had Adam wanting out of the virtual world and needed a new body. And because Tesla and Helen got a message out to Henry and Will needing help, Will was chosen to be Adam’s way out. But it wasn’t to the point of Adam transferring his consciousness into Will’s virtual body, but when Will would speak it was Adam’s voice. That was so wrong on so many levels.
But be happy to know that it was all a trick to get Adam focused on leaving the computer world so Henry could isolate and contain the menace who was wreaking havoc on the computers.
On the topic of special effects, this just shows how talented the creators are. When Helen and Tesla was in the virtual world, and each turn they make there was a new hallway created. One in particular was one corridor that seemed to go on forever. It put me in mind of the Twilight Zone (cues opening tune).
There was one part of the show where you actually seen a hallway being created. It made me think of Stargate SG-1 with the Tok’ra jamming a crystal into the wall to form rooms or corridors. I guess where some of the creators of SG-1 is not apart of Sanctuary, they can over lap ideas. Which I love.
But in any case, it was a great episode. One that I hope you all enjoyed (or will enjoy) as well.
