Synopsis: Laura tries to get rid of Anita, but is forced to reconsider when the synth saves Toby’s life, while Pete and Karen investigate a murder at the brothel.
Review: After the reveal last week with Leo you’d think the shocks would not be as forthcoming, but you’d be wrong. Niska is now free of the brothel having murdered one of her clients and has taken small steps to hide her true identity, but there is definitely something going haywire with her programming.
Anita continues to proves a problem for Laura, but when she saves Toby’s life Laura has to give the synth some slack, but she remains highly suspicious of her nature as does her daughter Mattie.
The most poignant and sad moment this week involves George who has to dump his old synth Odi in some woods. George is still struggling with his less than compassionate replacement synth Vera, who he has aptly named tugboat.
This weeks episode saw a fair bit of story progression with regards to Anita, but the surprise stand out moment this week comes from Niska who comes close to murdering a second person.
The acting gong this week should go to Gemma Chan as Anita who seems to have the body language and fine nuances of acting like you’d imagine a human looking robot to act down. The best scene is during a conversation that Laura has with Anita. Where Anita points out that she is the more efficient parent figure for Laura’s kids, but she’d never be able to love them.
