If what John Barrowman and Eve Myles told me at Comic Con this year is true, we’re in for a bumpy ride during this week’s episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day. The preview for the episode gives us a glimpse of what Myles described as a “brutal” scene for Jack and Gwen.
Eve Myles and John Barrowman sat with the press during Comic Con to talk about Torchwood and during the round-tables, both spoke of a big scene for Gwen and Jack, which takes place in a car. They were pretty vague on the circumstances surrounding the scene, but Myles did say it involved Jack tied up and that the two would "have it out." The preview video for Friday night’s episode includes a glimpse of a scene that definitely fits that description.
If you’re caught up on the show, you know that Gwen’s been propositioned to deliver Jack to the mystery villain (presumably), in exchange for her family. So, we already know Gwen is faced with an insanely emotional decision and it's likely to make an impact on Gwen and Jack's relationship. “You get to the bottom of Gwen Cooper, you get to the bottom of Jack Harkness, you get to the bottom of their relationship, and they have it out. It’s brutal,” Myles said of the episode, and in particular, the car scene, which she said was her favorite day of shooting on Torchwood, ever. Meanwhile, Barrowman said we’ll be surprised by what happens.
The video below includes a number of Jack scenes, which may or may not be flashbacks. That’s just speculation there. There’s something about them that gives me the flashback vibe. You’ll also see Gwen and Jack in the car together.
Will Gwen turn Jack over in exchange for her family? Does she even have a choice? I’m hoping it doesn’t come to that, however, it seems likely that this whole situation will be a game-changer for Gwen and Jack’s relationship. If not that, then at the very least, we’ll be seeing the true core of their relationship, for better or worse. Either way, this sounds like it’s going to be a big episode for the show and certainly one that long-time fans of the series definely wont want to miss.
The “Immortal Sins” episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day airs FRIDAY, AUGUST 19 AT 10PM ET/PT on Starz.
