PRIMEVAL (UK) Series 5 Episode 3 Review

PRIMEVAL Series 5 Episode 3 – Remember how in last week’s episode Matt found out Emily’s fate back in the Victorian era? Well this week’s anomaly handily linked to 1868, the year – nay, even theday – Emily was committed to Bedlam. After stopping a raptor in an art installation and accidentally ushering it through the anomaly into Victorian times, Matt decides to follow and capture it before it can kill anyone.

Of course, he finds Emily there. She’s a kickass dino hunter with a husband who thinks she’s both a bit of a tart and a bit insane. They spend the episode trying to find the raptor and keep Emily out of Bedlam. And you know what? It goes surprisingly well. The raptor is easy to find (hell, it finds Emily at one point) and they stun it after a fun little action scene involving a whip and some blades, and that is that. A sad goodbye and Matt is gone.

If Emily had been the same woman we met back in series 4, I would have wanted the episode to end there with her stuck in 1868 and possibly still headed for Bedlam, instead of the ending we got with her coming through the anomaly and her husband being killed. But the Emily we met in this episode was a little bit sharper and lot of sexy. Come on – who didn’t love her whipping out those two blades and looking totally badass? I’m not sure my love for her will extend past this episode – I don’t think Lester would be down with her wielding machetes instead of a stun gun, no matter how good she looks – but I hope she still keeps that badass edge.
