SANCTUARY “Firewall” Review Season 3, Episode 2

Sanctuary Season 3 Episode 2 - Firewall

This episode definitely gave a lot of time to showing what Will was going through. Apparently coming back from the dead wreaks havoc on the live body. Will cannot sleep and his temper is all over the place. Despite this, he is kept on the mission list and almost jeopardizes the capture of an abnormal by literally falling asleep at the wheel. Naturally, when invisible intruders sneak in to target Will, Dr. Magnus thinks he is suffering from hallucinations and paranoia. It is not long, however, until the team realizes that Will really saw something and it wasn’t just a nightmare. Once they find the device the intruders were using on Will’s head, Henry sets out to figure it out. Helen realizes that the intruders were after Will’s memories and figures if they can get the device to work, they can also find out what happened to Will when he went to the spirit realm. By sheer luck, or clumsiness on the part of Kate, they get the device to open. Once again Will offers to be a guinea pig and the device is used on him.

I thought that he would finally be able to tell Helen and the team what we saw happen in the spirit realm. I was not expecting for us to get to see more so that was certainly a bonus! Not only did we learn that the two beings that turned into earthquakes were somehow connected to Kali and quite possibly superabnormals themselves, but that it is possible they have been around a while and have avatars similar to Kali. Kate obtains information about a possible superabnormal turned volcano in 2005 in Indonesia. I know I saw Dr. Magnus’ eyes light up at the prospect. Will also saw Helen’s father in the spirit realm. He grabbed Will’s arm, burned some numbers and a symbol into them and said "for Helen." Helen realizes the numbers correspond with birthday gifts she received from her father and soon a paperweight and an old book open up an entire city around them. It is miniature, but very real. The crew can touch it and move it. I wonder what it means and what it is designed to do.
