Synopsis: In the Arizona desert there is a facility known as CATCH, from where all air traffic in North America is controlled. Scott and Virgil handle a rescue mission involving a mid-air plane collision which Kayo investigates the theft of a much used clean burn petroleum fuel.
Review: At last we have an episode in which Kayo gets a lot to do. The episode sees International Rescue having to stage a daring rescue while Kayo is assigned to investigate a problem at CATCH, which has the Hoods grubby mits all over it.
Although the story is pretty much a standard rescue story with a dash of espionage thrown in. What made this episode stand out was some of the character beats and the fantastic James Bond style opening in which Kayo gives chase on a motorcycle in order to catch a villain and retrieve some form of computer.
The little argument at the start of the story between Kayo and Scott Tracy was also fun to watch. In essence Scott is telling Kayo that it is her job to observe and report back. Not intervene or chase down villains. Of course Kayo doesn’t agree with this approach and would rather take action in the hopes that it prevents a disastrous outcome.
Even when confronting the Hood at the close of the story Kayo is on good form and the banter between her and her uncle was as good as ever. I’d just like to know when her employers at International rescue are going to learn the truth about her uncle and what the knock on effects will be to her continued involvement.
- More Kayo at last
- Kayo's family connection to the Hood as a plot thread is dragging a bit.
