Stahma's reaction to seeing Kenya alive, combined with the awesome Votan cover of 4 Non Blondes "What's Going On" - all seamlessly driving to the opening credits. This scene was well acted, well produced, engaging. It was just totally, totally awesome.
Benz For The Win
So Julie Benz completely won this episode. Amanda's devastation and desperation to hang onto Kenya - even after she realized that her sister wasn't actually alive, but just an Indogene imposter - was the cherry on top of a roller coaster of emotions we got to see play out.
Kenya of Daribo
Kenya's an Indogene? We're not sure what was better about this scene - the twisted reveal of it all, or Mia Kirshner's powerhouse performance.
Plotting, Pottinger Style
Wait, so POTTINGER was behind Kenya's "resurrection," all in an effort to "rescue" her so Amanda would be grateful and he could get in her pants? That's twisted and we love it. More Pottinger schemes, please.
The Bitter Tears of Stahma Tarr
This episode was full of such great performances from three actresses - Julie Benz, Mia Kirshner and Jaime Murray - that it was hard to narrow it down to one specific scene for each that shined. But Stahma's tearful goodbye to Kenya at the end of the episode stands out. The depth of Stahma's feelings for Kenya - arguably the first person to treat her as an equal and introduce her to her own power - has always been slightly ambigious. Not anymore.
