What I’m Watching: Outcasts

Outcasts: Season 1, Episode 6 (B+)

I'm so drawn in by the way this show handles its spookier and more supernatural elements. The notion of there being two Josies was absolutely awesome, but what really intrigued me was the way that Tate insisted to Cass that what he and everyone else saw was just a hallucination. Knowing that there are only two more episodes left in this show's run is saddening and maddening considering the wealth of ground that could have been covered had the show lived a long and healthy life. The AC attack on Forthaven was a new, unprecedented step, and Cass' ability to warn the rest of the crew proved quite timely and impressive. Replicating a human being seems like too talented a task for the ACs, and I'm so curious if we'll ever know who was responsible for it, and for what purpose or endgame. I sort of like the idea that it might have something to do with the planet of Carpathia rather than the people on it actually trying to mess with science. Julius' manipulative behavior has grown exponentially as it's revealed that he actually tasked Jack with ordering the assassination of Rudi. It's also intriguing that he's coordinating this impending invasion and seems to think that Stella would be on his side since she's definitely loyal as can be to Tate. I like seeing the relationship between Fleur and Cass continue to stall and not really develop, as Cass asks her for a drink and Fleur strongly denies that it would be anything more than that.
