Kyle XY: Primary Colors

Kyle XY
(S02E20) "I'm alive." - Sarah

As many of us theorized, Sarah is alive and kicking. What we don't know though is where she is, why she sent the disk to Jessi and not Adam, how she discovered Jessi and where she lives, what her end game is, etc. The reveal of her being alive was interesting as in tapped in Kyle's abilities and showed everyone what could happen if Kyle was "mediocre" (Jessi's word here not mine).

Kyle XY Everyone took Kyle for granted and expected him to help them. Kyle being, well, Kyle, he couldn't say no to his friends and family members so not to disappoint them. Even if we now know that his brain farts were due to the song, it's clear that everyone was too demanding and that Kyle needed to learn to calm down and think of himself in all of this. But Kyle being, well, Kyle, I doubt that he'll slow down any time soon especially now that they know Sarah is out there and clearly wants to be found.

Kyle XYAfter seeing Sarah's message, I went back to "Great Expectations" in which Kyle receives an IM that included a Latnok symbol from an anonymous source. I wanted to know if the symbol in the email had a red center and it does not (see picture on the left). I thought that maybe Adam sent Kyle the IM to let him know he was back in action (Adam showed up a few episodes after the IM was sent); however, it was never cleared up who sent the IM. So could Sarah have sent the email and included the Latnok ring of another member to put Kyle on a certain path? Back when episode 2.16 aired, most of you thought Adam was the one who IMed Kyle but now I'm wondering if it is the case. We'll surely learn the truth before the season ends.

The Tragers called on Adam to help Kyle with his hearing problems. It was about time that the three of them met but why didn't they want Lori and Josh to meet Kyle's biological father? Just imagine what wisdom sayings would have come out of Josh's mouth when face to face with Adam! Now that the Tragers and Adam met, I expect more visits from him to the house. Adam now knows he is welcomed to the Tragers' and Nicole will probably want to meet with him in order to better understand Kyle in the hope to help him evolve and develop his abilities in the proper environment.

In last week's poll, almost 95% of you predicted that Andy was healed. It's still unclear though if it was Kyle's doing but I'm happy she is alright. Adam doesn't think Kyle is able to heal someone else at this stage of his development. But Kyle is not Adam so anything is possible. Plus Kyle did have a nose bleed after hugging/healing Andy, so it could be proof that he did heal her. Then again, some will argue that he tried to heal her but that he isn't powerful enough yet to completely cure her.

Kudos to the sound editing of this episode because I was annoyed and disoriented, which helped understanding how Kyle was feeling at the time.

Other scenes of interest
  • Stephen, a man, actually remembered an anniversary without being reminded!
  • Jessi's tutoring technique need some tweaking! However, it was hilarious to see Josh on the floor trying to study while doing push ups.
  • Hillary telling Stephen about "Loclan" and then Mark and Lori was priceless. She voiced everything we've been seeing between Mark and Lori and it looks like it'll head exactly where we think it'll lead: a relationship.
  • It must not have been easy for Carol to cross the lawn in order to thank Kyle. Seeing her daughter play piano again had such a profound effect that she didn't think long before allowing Kyle to take Amanda to the prom. Kyle may have won this fight but the battle between him and Carol is definitely not over. Remember, she's a glacier, not an ice cube!

I agree, the lack of HD airings for this show is *really* annoying.

Greek and Kyle XY might be shown on ABC in the summer for some filler.

One other comment: Was anybody else disappointed a little bit about the teaser last week and what this week's show ended up being. They ended up squeezing the "Kyle bonkered" storyline into a small portion of the episode, compared to dealing with all the cutesy-cutesy subplots. I so much wish this show was on any other network that didn't feel obligated to devote so little of each episode to the scifi arc of the series.

Don't get me wrong, slowly but surely, Kyle XY is starting to handle the minor character better, giving them better written dialogue, and the actors are slowly growing more natural in those roles. But they are taking their sweet time, and in the meantime, these scenes are often grating.

I think the writers are clearly dragging out the big revelation of Kyle's origins to Amanda for some big event episode, maybe the season finale. I think this is a mistake, and it is becoming more and more glaring and annoying the longer she is the only one not to know anything about what Kyle is.

Why doesn't Amanda think more about what Kyle is hiding? She knows he is hiding something, and then he made things explode in the kitchen this episode.

I was asking myself the same question when she was massaging him in his room. The girl is way too understanding. She knows he is hiding something HUGE yet doesn't want to know about it!

Even though is been beat to death, i think Portal's "Still Alive" song would have been perfect for this episode.
