There are just two episodes left of Torchwood: Miracle Day and there are a couple of major questions to be answered, like what “The Blessing” is, and who started the Miracle. Both of these mysteries are addressed in the videos we have to share with you for this week’s episode, titled “The Gathering.”
I’m not entirely sure how I feel about Torchwood: Miracle Day at this point, to be honest. On one hand, I’m loving the new characters and, having watched the previous seasons, I feel a sense of comfortable familiarity whenever Jack and Gwen are on screen. I also feel like the humor and character development is staying true to the earlier seasons.
As for the story, while it’s ok for the most part, though off-beat in pacing from what we’ve seen in previous seasons of the series, I suspect I’ll end up appreciating the whole thing a lot more once it’s all done and I have the opportunity to watch it from beginning to end either on DVD or Netflix. It’s not so much that I don’t like not knowing what’s going on. Mystery is a big part of the intrigue for a show like this. I’m just not sure it’s found its rhythm, or maybe I’m just not feeling it yet. I expect that it'll be clearer when I inevitably revisit the series later.
On the bright side, as mentioned, Gwen and Jack are better than ever and Rex and Esther are excellent additions to the Torchwood team. With only two episodes left, I certainly plan on tuning in to see how all of this ends.
Below is a clip from Episode 9, “The Gathering,” which features an tense, smoking Jilly as she learns what’s next for her. Below that is the preview for Friday’s episode.
