Things are heating up at the high school. The "list" is about to be published and whole reputations will be made or destroyed. Kyle’s life is also turning out to be filled with surprises. Seems when he puts his mind to it; he can do things "little" things like walk right through fire--emerging without a burn. Foss is desperate for Kyle to get on with his training, but Kyle wants to opt out. Kyle wants so badly to be "normal" that he's all but rejecting his powers. XX has been given the name Jessi Parker and is being primed to make contact with Kyle--seems it's time he's brought back in for good.
This is the episode where both Nicole and Declan, after seeing Kyle do some unusual things last year, find out for sure that Kyle actual has special abilities. Neither seems terribly wowed by all this (contrast the comic book nerd from last season who figured out Kyle's secret and thought it was wicked cool). Amanda and Charlie finally split, clearing the way for Kyle to make his move.
Cute Trager Family Drama of the Week:
Declan breaks up with Lori for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
Madacorp apparently has the ability to imprint an entire personality onto a clone. Asked for an explanation, the unflappable CEO, Ballentine, just says, "We're a big corporation." So what, does that mean Microsoft and Time Warner also have this technology? (Actually, I wouldn't be surprised.)
Bottom Line: Worth Watching?:
Although Charlie is even more of a cartoon cad than he was last season (the dialog and plot in this and other episodes is deliberately structured to ensure you have no sympathy for him, which is a shame), he really has to be for Amanda to wake up and get real about the jerk she's hung up on. Which really makes you wonder why genius Kyle is so hung up on such a clueless airhead in the first place. The way she finds out, though (on "the list," Charlie is voted a title that reveals his indiscretions for all to see), is fun.
