Kylie Rogers continues to shine in the role of Minx Lawrence, one of the key children controlled by an imaginary friend named Drill. She is the right amount of cute and creepy.
Minx at one point says, ‘I don’t think grownups really know what’s going on, even though they say they do.’
This proved exactly true as all key parties converged to the power plant (I kept thinking Homer Simpson would be found in one of the rooms there.).
Anyway, Minx meets Henry in his house and tells him Drill has one more game for him to play. A scavenger hunt begins with the youngster riding his bicycle to the Black-Eyed Sue, which ends up being a ferry. From there, he reaches the yellow dancer, a wacky waving inflatable tube man similar to the ones you see at car dealerships. Henry makes his way down along the creek and into the proverbial rabbit hole, inside one of the plant’s tunnels.
The problem with this is the staff is planning on flooding the reactor to prevent a meltdown and contamination. Sean and Dr. Benavidez are also the vicinity. He arms the doctor with a gun and tells her he is supposed to be here, but he doesn’t know why. If he does something bad, he wants her to shoot him. Sean then goes into some sort of seizure and is taken into custody. Wes questions him, but a power outage allows Sean to escape.
Sean is taken down by authorities. The way he is treated causes Henry to yell for them to stop hurting him. This reveals the boy can actually hear. He told mom the Drill told him to keep this a secret. Elsewhere, Minx tells her mother the game is over when everyone gets what they want. The show ends with a light flickering. Perhaps, this was a sign that the game may have just begun.
This suspenseful episode was one where I really got hooked on this series and got me excited for what is next. If previews are any indication, we are a step closer from finding out whom or what Drill actually is.
