Synopsis: As Caitlin and Thunderbird struggle to save the life of a mutant injured in the Inner Circles chaotic liberation of a psychiatric hospital, they discover clues to the identity of the powerful mutant Polaris and Andy were sent to retrieve.

Review: This episode suffers from some serious pacing issues given that action is thin on the ground.

The Story

Most this deals with the aftermath of the Inner Circle attack on the psychiatric hospital in which Thunderbird and Polaris managed to save a fair few of the mutants being kept there while the Inner Circle pretty much got the person that they were after.

Thunderbird is back at the hospital with Kate trying to help one of the rescued mutants in the hopes of getting information from him with regards to the identity of the person that the Circle was after.

Meanwhile, Eclipse and Blink are taking the other stray mutants to the underground where they try to get accommodations for them, but it seems that there will be a price that each stray will have to pay.

Back at the Inner Circle headquarters, Andy tries to reach out to the rescued mutant by taking a more human approach than the Frost sisters.

Elsewhere, Jace has joined up with a Mutant hate group and tries to bring an element of organization to what is basically a small group of Red Necks with little clue of how to play the long game. He orchestrates a search of all the local hospitals that are known to be sympathetic, but things go seriously wrong.

The Acting

There are some solid performances in this episode, but it was Percy Hynes White that kind of stole it with his portrayal of Andy and the way in which he forms a bond with the new mutant Rebecca.

Overall

Nothing too much happened in this episode to advance the story. The Inner Circle has there mutant and the old Atlanta Resistance remnants are still struggling to find their feet in their mission get to mutants before the Circle, whose ideology is basically that of a mutant society that will rule over humans.

If honest. With the exception of a few moments. This episode was kind of boring.
