The Avengers 155
Is Tara a traitor?
- This is pretty much a solo Tara story. Steed only appears properly in the second half, and even then it is really Tara who still carries the story. Steed shows up at the end to rescue her, at least.
- The first half is mysterious. The viewer has no idea what is going on.
- The reveal, when it eventually comes, is both brilliant and disappointing. Brilliant because it is so genuinely devious and scarily plausible. Disappointing because it’s not fantastical. Given that show regularly employs fantasy tropes in it’s storytelling, one is inclined to expect them. Here, however, is a purely espionage-driven script.
- Several great fight scenes.
- Great score.
