Welcome Leo McKern as a better, perhaps best, Number 2. Although this role gets handed out to a lot of actors, it definitely and rightly belongs to Leo.

Nice little episode where you almost believe he has escaped with Number 8 in tow. Being only episode 2, you knew it wasn't going to happen, but it was very well played.

Trackers: These are the white bubble orbs that are released to keep people at bay or in check. I'm glad to see early on that if you shoot the tracker or puncture it, it doesn't deflate.

Glaring Mistake: Don't look too close at the the tracker as it retrieves Nadia from the sea, you can see the handlers hands are pushing it across the water.

8!

This one gets a nine from me. The best episode of the series up to this point for me (I watch this one fifth in my order) and a great introduction to Leo McKern as #2, who is for sure the best one of all.

#5 in my order as well. Another very good episode and entertaining to watch. I liked #2 from the previous episode as well as McKern here.

8!
