Carter and Jarvis lead SRR to the stolen Stark weapons—but the danger for both characters increases.

High Points

Hayley Atwell does an excellent job. She’s convincing as an action hero: strong, but not invulnerable. Yet the emotional moments also play well. I especially liked her concluding moments this week, as she tries to connect with her new friend, while keeping so many secrets from her.

Low Point

The boarding house shaming of Molly Bowden juxtaposes nicely with the wink-wink attitude towards Krzeminski and Stark’s sexual indiscretions, and it highlights the sexual double standard. It still makes no sense for Carter to place herself under so many restrictions, given her circumstances, and the house matron Miriam Fry feels a little too much like a comic-book parody.

The Scores:

Originality: 3/6

Effects: 5/6

Acting: 5/6

Story: 6/6

Emotional Response: 5/6

Production: 6/6 This episode has a more noir look, with many scenes occurring at night and New York looking just a little less shiny than it did last week.

Overall: 5/6.

In total, “Time and Tide” receives 35/42

    I love the show but this is my feeling exactly. I don’t understand why she is hiding her investigation rather than reporting back (at least partially) what she has uncovered.
