Now that was a nice fun episode. Following on from last week’s fun, Cutter has devised a suitably silly device that somehow plots the times and places of previous anomalies, and allows predictions of possible future anomalies. Naturally, it predicts a location but it’s a bit vague about the time. Jenny, Connor and Abby head to a nicely abandoned house. In a pre-titles sequence, we’ve seen Something Nasty happen to some kids in that house fourteen years earlier, so it’s probably the right place.
After much confusion and subplottery, we find that the trouble is caused by some creature from the future with big ears, big teeth and a really cool camouflage ability. An anomaly shows up and it nearly escapes, but Danny shoots it a bit.
Aaaaaaaand finally, Helen breaks into Cutter’s house to steal a bit of hair from his comb and some saliva from a glass. Oh dear, does she want to make an extra Nick Cutter? Surely one is plenty?
It looks like things are going to get very interesting next week, with a wee bit of Helen-induced bother in the ARC.
No sharks were jumped, trampled or otherwise disturbed in this episode.
 Including conjectured ones from the past, based on the idea that if there’s a myth about a monster, there must have been an anomaly in the vicinity
 Helen gets one of her cloned thugs into the Arc, where he’s shot dead. Cutter’s surprised to see him, as last time he saw him he was busy being eaten.
 Detective Constable Danny Quinn gets in the way, arrests Connor for being excessively chirpy, and ends up quitting his job. He’ll probably be back
 Well, that wasn’t what he said it was for, but I’m sure it was a contributing factor
 Turns out his brother was one of the kids who we saw at the beginning, and who hasn’t been seen since. Danny thinks the sole survivor, Ryan Mason did it.
