The Episode Review
Although The Peripheral continues to be somewhat longer and slower than it should be, this episode explores the dynamics of relationships quite well. The show focuses on the conflict for control that is fought in the relationship between Flynne as well as her younger brother, as well as the conflict between Wilf as well as his mother who adopted him. There are also interesting details about Wilf and his family background is the forced name change and Aelita’s displeasure at his choice. It will be fascinating to learn how the show handles the issue of race in the next century.
In fact, Cherise is more fascinating on this show, specifically when she compares her actions with the behavior of a mother. You can’t help but be amazed by her slick and easy method of killing, while T’Nia Miller depicts her smiles as well as threats with truly terrifying energy. An admirable adversary.
Overall, it’s an interesting but not particularly exciting episode.
