3: High hopes

Plot / themes
  • Jacob Clarke uses his powers - and suffers. An alien warns him against using them again. Jacob seems to know the alfabet on the artifact.
  • Jesse Keys is taken again. He proceeds to seek out Russell, who's sick. He has a thing in his head. They both have - oops.
  • Owen Crawford might be looking for Jacob again - who's disappeared by Tom again. Instead Owen's found by Jesse. Yeah, a new experiment! The thing is removed from Russells head - it's alive - and makes people go berserk. Interesting - so they hide Jesse away. Ah - but the aliens have other plans.
  • Jacob seems to have run out of powers.
  • Anne threatens to become a security risk - so Owen shoots her. Jeez.
  • The aliens seem protective. They now take people for hours - abductions.

Plot in short
The state changing people's lives - and not caring one bit.
Relevancy of plot

Plot is thought provoking

Realism in plot

Believable characters
It hurts to see Owen lie so much to Anne.
Touching characters
"[Don't] do nothing." And the soldier decides to help Jesse.


2nd time.
Quite a lot of blood and violence. But still, interesting. 7/10.
