WARNING: This episode contains spoilers from episode five
Episode four of class was the best one yet. As the halfway point of the series, it had everything for a mid series finale (part 1). It had loads of shocks, suprises and thrills. This episode was anticipated in my opinion, but the question I will ask is did it stand up to expectations?
Well I'm sad to say that it didn't. This episode was a bit of a disappointment. After the great episode build up that had happened from episode four, I don't think this episode was as good as it could have been. It felt a bit lacking in comparison to the last episode, and it's sad to say that. But I must say, it still delivered some very good stuff in it.
I love the growing part of the parents. It's great that they moan for silly little things at the kids, whilst the alien invasion is happening in the background. And all the characters have been developed further. April and Ram are still the most developed characters, although we do have some stories for the other characters meanwhile.
As April and Ram venture the realm of the shadow kin, Charlie has to face a dangerous decision. He has to decide if he should destroy the flower petals to save the Earth with the cabinet of souls. But then he would risk loosing all of the rhodians and Mattuez.
The story is clumsly wrapped up I believe, although it's clever to wrap in the shadow kin stories alongside the stories set up with the shadow kin. And the ending was pretty predictable as well.
This episode was okay, but failed to deliver in terms of quality. I just hope that the rest of the series is just as great as episode 4. And one positive I can say is how epic this two parter was. It defiantly felt like the big finale one. But we'll have to see what that delivers soon.
Now to our rankings section.
Overall I would give this episode a 7.9
