Adrift...

Oh, wow. That one made me cry.

Gwen really gets a wake up call to the darker side of Torchwood in this episode. A boy goes missing, and her former partner, P.C. Andy, tries to get her help, believing that Torchwood is somehow responsible. With Tosh's help, she figures out that the Rift is responsible for many disappearances over the last decade. Jack tries to put a stop to her inquiries, but Ianto gives her the location of a "hospital" where the few returnees are cared for. Gwen finds the boy, aged and horribly injured. She reunites the boy with his mum. He's so changed that the reunion utterly destroys the mother. Gwen gives up her searches for the missing, now that she knows the truth. She goes home and breaks down in Rhys's arms.

That was just so sad. Unbearable, even. I admit to not being a huge Gwen fan, but this was a good episode for her. She had to learn a hard lesson, that Torchwood can't always make things right when it comes to aliens. Other good points: The return of P.C. Andy! Always good to see him. Rhys once again shows he's a good man- first by making Gwen see that it's not always about her (Damn right!) and later by being there when she completely breaks down.

Oh, yeah, the one happy spot in the episode- Gwen walking in on Jack and Ianto, half naked and getting it on in the hothouse. Guh. Guh. Guh. Did I mention, GUH???



This will probably the most re-watched scene in the history of the show...

Jack: We could have used you an hour ago for Naked Hide-and-Seek.
Ianto: He cheats. He always cheats.

Seriously, that was one of the better episodes the show has done. Definitely made up for From Out of the Rain. Next- Fragments. That looks scary. And I am dreading the finale, Exit Wounds...hoping that the rumors aren't true....
