    And then there was one (episode left that is). The good news this episode has returned to the rather mediocre level of the early episodes, so I won't miss it much. It seems the new theme is "I thought that Neuro was chipped. Oh, (s)he was, here's the twist."

    And we got Asian twins. How original. And somehow when their powers combine they blow up. Um, OK.

    The twins was, unfortunately, no surprise to the audience since each was credited at the beginning with similar names and the same family name.

    I totally missed that.

    Maybe that's a benefit of watching with Closed Captions on, perhaps they covered the opening credites.

    At the beginning I was thinking same actor,
    then there were a couple scenes where they didn't look quite alike so I was thinking different actors who resemble each other.

    Then at the end I saw it was twins, and saw the names in the closing credits.

    I too missed the opening and closing credits so at first I too thought it was the same actor. It was only when they sat on the bed together that I thought, "Oh! Huh..."

    Wasn't Sarah supposed to be monitored while she was isolation when sis first snuck in and snuck out again?

    This was indeed a mediocre episode. It would've been better if there had been a final confrontation with Andre w/ Sarah being forced to choose between escaping with her twin or staying imprisoned with Andre (and she ultimately chose to leave).

    this was a striking example of just how mediocre this show can be, and has become. It was never great, but at least it was mostly popcorn entertaining. This was just mush. Oh, did I forget to mention the completely fallen flat attempt to engage our interest by artificially creating an emotional attachment between Andre and Sarah, who as far as I remember, we have never seen before.

    I don't understand the whole twin thing.

    I thought that the neuros were supposed to have been created through a drug trial, not genetics. If that's the case, then how did both twins get their (identical) powers?

    The only thing I can figure is that the drug trial affected their genetic makeup, so twins, have the same genetic makeup, would get the same power. Of course that doesn't explain the fact that the twins never knew each other. So now you have the rather unlikely event that two twins who didn't know each other did the trial.
