THE EVENT “Turnabout” Review

THE EVENT "Turnabout" Season 1 Episode 13 - After breaking out the Inostranka detainees, Thomas sets his sights on getting fuel for the portal array. With a little help from an old acquaintance, he cons Sophia into warning the government about an imminent attack on a nuclear power station. Arrangements are made for the uranium rods to be transported to a research facility, but Thomas and co attack the convoy and get away with the rods.

Meanwhile, Sean leaves Leila and goes to visit his sister to ask for her help in getting to Mexico. She tells him that he should be trying to stop the people who framed him for murder. This leads him to go after the one person he knows who can help him – Vicky Roberts.
