This episode keeps you glued to the screen - it's that good

This episode is full of suspense right from the very beginning. Gone is the drama from the previous episode. Hubots are presented in this 3rd chapter as dangerous and capable of treacherous acts. The threatening image of hubots are enhanced by the use of close up techniques, highlighting the expression in the eyes. The make up has been done brilliantly creating a very effective hubot looks.

The plot is developed by introducing new characters in the scene. One of them is the lady vicar who accommodates the rogue hubots in her house. This must be the reference for the episode title "The Lord shall be our Companion". Some ethical values that have come up may be confrontational. For example, the lady vicar being married to a woman, and one of the hubots talking (as if daydreaming) about getting married to a human and having children.

Another new character is the lady police officer. Although she has been seen briefly in the 2nd episode, her character is starting to develop in this story. It is most likely that she will be in for a bigger and equally important role as the rest of the main characters. We will find out next week.

Meanwhile, Leo continues to search for Mimi (who was reprogrammed as Anita) whereas Anita keeps getting flashbacks of her past experiences with Leo as a boy.

Anyone who gets up to this 3rd episode will most likely look forward to finding out what happens next. Stay tuned for the next episode.
