Facing the enemy
4 September 2009 | by sinceveronaSee all my reviews

When Owen opened the rift Jack and Toshiko did return but the consequences of that act was horrifying. Mr.Bilis Manger appears again to Gwen, when she comes to prison where the guard Andrew shows her and Jack a killer. It is a roman soldier who speaks in Latin, and he had savagely killed two persons. Jack decides to take him with them and lock him in one of the cells in Torchwood. Gwen tells Jack that Bilis asked her to forgive him, but she did not understand what he meant. In the hospital Owen and Toshiko are faced with another issue. The episode was very intense. As a closure for the first season some really unbelievable things happened. Bilis was an evil character from the start. It was strange to me that the team members one by one started to believe in his lies. Nobody was listening to Jack and I found that unacceptable. I really loved special effects in this one. The ending was a nerve wrecking but it was wort it.
