This week’s episode features some strong acting by John Noble as Walter demonstrates his inability to function in normal society. The plot involves semi-competent Chinese Triads, misused illegal immigrants, and an altered wormy organism with medicinal properties.
Pity Astrid still doesn’t have much of a personality, given that the actress has some talent and they’re actually giving the character something to do this time around. This week’s episode really doesn’t add to the story arc, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It holds up as passably entertaining genre television better than some of the heavy “arc” eps.
