->... I said to Eric Saward, the script editor, 'When I’m [[KickTheMoralityPet tying Peri to this rock and threatening to torture her]], am I doing it for some subtle reason of my own, because I think I’m {{being watched}} or whatever, or because I’ve [[NotHimself been affected by the mind probe]], or is the Matrix [[{{Frameup}} lying?]]' Those were the three alternatives as I saw it. He said 'I don’t know, you’d better ask Philip Martin', so I got in touch and gave him those three alternatives, he said 'I don’t know, Eric wrote the trial stuff, all the Matrix stuff was added after, by Eric, you’d better ask him.' So I went to Creator/JohnNathanTurner, he said 'Oh, [[ShrugOfGod whichever you like.]]'

->Hahaha, thank you, ''ComicStrip/SpiderMan'', thank you for wrapping up this storyline in the most pointlessly absurd way possible. There’s nothing about this that I don’t adore. I love that the potential dramatic purpose of Mysterio’s [[LatexPerfection double-masking]] is undercut by the strip revealing the truth after only one panel, and I sincerely hope the reasons behind it are [[VoodooShark never discussed or even mentioned]]. I love the fact that the “Dash” Dashell mask is presumably fixed in [[GrumpyBear that glum expression]]. I love that he’s got glasses perched on top of the mask, and that those glasses apparently [[OffModel have transition lenses]]. I love the weird grimace Beck is making as the mask comes off, which is actually the sort of face you’d make if you were wearing a fishbowl full of water over a latex mask. I love the fact that all this time we’ve been set up to think that Rory [=McCormick=], [[RedHerring the douchey special effects guy]], is Mysterio, but it turns out to be some other dude we’ve never even heard of before this point. The only way I could possibly be happier would be if Spidey pulled off the Quentin Beck mask only to discover [=McCormick’s=] face underneath.

->Kicking off this abysmal piece of television, Ianto’s idea of a good night in is to order in a pizza and share it with his half converted [[{{Sexbot}} Cyber]]-girlfriend. Until this point Ianto has been a nobody, a [[TheGenericGuy bland background smell]], but here we get to find out about his sordid shenanigans. We were better off [[FanDisservice not knowing.]] He blubbers uncontrollably throughout, and once he manages to sneak the Doctor in to examine his pet and the guy is slaughtered, Ianto has the audacity to scream ''"it's all my fault!"'' as if [[TheMillstone there was ever any doubt]]. When asked to account for himself Ianto goes on a tirade about clearing up their shit and nobody asking anything about his life -- what the hell? ''[[GoingPostal This]]'' is how you get some attention? Despite trying to murder all of his friends Ianto still tries to reason with Lisa, holds a gun on his friends and [[LoveMakesYouEvil tries to save her!]] None of this makes any sense! Why is it that if Ianto thinks Jack is such a monster and worse than anything they have banged up in Torchwood that he [[EasilyForgiven ends up shagging him]] in three episodes time? Did they have read-throughs and writers' conferences? By the end of this episode you really want Ianto to die horribly because all he does is shriek and blubber like a baby; ''[[CharacterDerailment that’s]]'' not development. Why do they let Ianto [[UltimateJobSecurity keep working with them]] after the girlfriend that he sneaked into their workplace besieged them all? Not one second rings true.

->In my previous article, I stated that Brett Dalton as Agent Ward was 'about as expressive as [[DullSurprise a cardboard box full of styrofoam peanuts]]', and that hasn’t changed, even despite the reveal that he was [[spoiler:an agent of HYDRA]] all along. I can’t say for certain that the writers totally pulled his {{heel turn}} out of their asses, but it sure feels that way. I doubt rewatching those early episodes would reveal any clues about Ward’s true loyalties that we didn’t notice before, and Brett Dalton himself had no inkling of the twist until 15 episodes in.

->We finally learn the secret of the immortals. Turns out they're all aliens from planet called Zeist, exiled to live on Earth for all eternity. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer I'm not making this up.]] Zeist. All of the immortals are shown in a group together, exiled for some kind of revolution. To this day, I enjoy how richly Zeistian the names '[=MacLeod=]' and 'Ramirez' are... This entire setup convinces me that the screenwriters never actually saw the first movie, because in that movie, Connor knows no other immortals, and [[PlotHole cannot recognize Ramirez or the Kurgan]] when he sees them. And he also seems to require training that he shouldn't need, because the "rules" for their exile were [[InfoDump spelled out in exacting detail]] on Zeist. Maybe Connor was drifting off when the Zeist aliens were explaining, 'Oh by the way, the only way you can die is by getting your head chopped off. Remember that.' It gets funnier the more you think about it, since Connor also believed himself to be a normal human being until slain by the Kurgan. The argument holds less water than my sister on a road trip.
