Synopsis: London’s huge wall presents the racers with another massive obstacle; The General and Faith hatch a sneaky plan; Jenny grows increasingly anxious.
Review: Curfew gets just a little bit creepier and delves deeper into the darker side of human nature.
The Racers are looking to finally escape London, but the one obstacle remaining is a huge wall. The Donahues share their plans to use some old tunnels with Kaye, Ruby, and Dave. While The General and a heavily pregnant Faith hatch a sneaky plan to get across the border.
In this week’s Flashbacks, we learn about how Faith got together with The General and it is a rather dark story.
Meanwhile, a very anxious Jenny Donahue gets bitten while trying to protect her son from one of the creatures.
Rose Williams puts in a great performance this week as Faith. We learn that she was a baby sitter and that she was sitting for a family whose kids were attacked by their brother who had been bitten by one of the creatures.
Andi Osho also puts in a great performance as Jenny who gets into a little trouble while protecting her son Roman from one of the creatures.
A really strong episode, which sees us lose at least two of the regular cast members in what is only the third week of the series.
I loved the conversation between Ruby, Kaye, and Michael when they talk about the race being more about tactics than speed and use the story of the Hara and the Turtle as an allegory for how they should run the race.
The closing five minutes of this episode get really, really dark and quite bleak as we see Faith show herself to be a lot tougher and resilient than she first appeared to be.
