Trivia

Given this episode "travels back" to [approx.] "45 minutes" where the preceding episode started but focusing on Miss Quill's perspective, in juxtaposition to its predecessor, the non-diagetic (background) music playing at the end between both of the episodes are different with varying duration. In Class: Detained (2016), "Invaders Must Die" by The Prodigy plays immediately after she delivers her last dialogue between 00:40:52 - 00:41:11 (19 seconds) whereas "Bad Girls" by M.I.A. plays when she's about to finish between 00:43:19 - 00:43:36 (~17 seconds) in this episode.

The Metaphysical Engine, or What Quill Did
13 January 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

In the previous episode, class was in detention and dealing with a meteor. Miss Quill went off to deal with the metaphysical as she and Ames along with a shapeshifter impersonating a Zygon called Ballon who is also a prisoner. Here we see the result of their adventures.

The task is to go to metaphysical alien worlds and belief systems. The Arn version of heaven, Ballon's peoples hell and a god that Quill's race believe in.

It all leads to Quill feeling like a soldier one more time, an eye opening extraction process, Ballon and Quill making love and Ames maybe showing her hand as a nasty one which leads me to conclude that the school governors are up to no good.

This episode feels more like a genuine sci fi episode albeit still a low budget one, despite being beautifully filmed. This is because here we are not concentrating on the teenagers. Yet Quill's wisecracks still makes her the most intriguing character.
