Even as this episode sets itself up for what could have been a glorious exploration of how Dorian or DRNs in general feel, all it achieves is over-accentuating the other guy’s man pain. This could have been such a great episode about Dorian and John fighting to keep Dorian in the field, it could have been such a great opportunity to actually show us the way Dorian has been dealing with things, it could have been a story full of interpretation and debate on the concept of free will in DRNs and the Synthetic Soul, in the case of one such character being portrayed by the fantastic Michael Ealy.
Instead, what we got is the glorious story about the redemption and absolution of another pair of white guys. We get a case story line that makes no sense whatsoever, seems cobbled together on account of us never having heard of that particular shade of John’s terrible, terrible pain before, and that only serves to illustrate how great of a cop John’s dad was.
