Terra Nova “Within” Review

Terra Nova returned after a week off with its tenth episode, "Within". And guess what? The title refers to the mole being within the colony! Even though this series is only ten episodes old, I’m already feelingcompletely fed up with this mole story line. After finding out the identity of the mole, it always makes you pay extra close attention to that character since you now know they have an ulterior motive, and Skye has been written very poorly in that regard. Why is it that the only time that Skye has ever acted cagey or suspicious is as soon as we know that she’s a mole? She wasn’t being all mysterious and asking Josh to lie for her before we found out she’s dirty, but now that we know about it she’s acting so incredibly obvious.

Well, thankfully Taylor and Shannon actually find out the identity of the mole, and then Taylor reveals another tasty morsel of info: He has a spy in the Sixer camp himself! It’s Curran, the exiled soldier from a couple episodes ago! It makes sense for Taylor to try to turn him, but it makes you wonder a couple things.
