Unnecessary side story line with Dutch.
23 September 2014 | by Brettyboy007See all my reviews

I wanted to like this episode. I really did. I just can't stand that Dutch girl. I understand she caused the whole internet shutdown thing, but other than that, I don''t see why she's sticking around. Will she do something in the upcoming episodes that will make her likable? I hope she's killed off.

The only reason I don't rate it lower is the Kelly story line. I liked it a lot. It will definitely be a huge blow to Zach when he finds out. I think The Master has big plans for Kelly.

Overall, the episode had a lot of unnecessary scenes. It could have just been cut down to just Kelly.
