temporarily losing his powers opened the way for some interesting new
storylines but the concept seemed to be mostly squandered as J.J.'s issues
received more focus. However, I did like how Jim's helplessness in several key
situations was emphasized. Now that these characters have had their powers for
some time, losing them is devastating. It's almost like losing a part of what
makes them complete. I foresee an upcoming episode dedicated to the Powells
learning that they shouldn't let their powers define who they really are. As
for right now, I think it's obvious that this family unit would fall apart if
it weren't for the gifts they've received.
It was a little too convenient that the carjackers Jim was investigating just so happened to crash into Mr. Litchfield's car. I mean, really, what are the chances in such a large city? I'm sure J.J. could calculate them. It was a little sloppy but allowed the writers to transition the story from Jim to J.J. and his need to help Mr. Litchfield. As the theme of the night was helplessness, J.J. refused to sit around and feel sorry for himself. Instead, he used his powers to save Mr. Litchfield. There's an unlimited amount of potential when it comes to using J.J.'s gifts and I like what they did this week. He's already come along way from that selfish brat in the first few episodes of the season who refused to tell anyone about his powers. Now he's actively seeking out ways to help those around. I also appreciated the fact that he refused to help his sister in her endeavor to land a boyfriend.
