Series 2 - Episode 5



Sex, violence, car chases, betrayals – it all kicks off tonight. I’m particularly enjoying Hester, the sinister industrial synth who has developed consciousness, but not a conscience. She has already discovered how effective torture can be with humans, and says pointedly to synth-liberator Leo, “In human history, has any great change ever been accomplished, any unjust oppression been overturned, without violence?”

Humans likes to throw off the odd philosophical spark like this. In another plotline Karen, the secretly synth policewoman, points out to boyfriend Pete that they can never grow old together, because synths don’t age. And elsewhere, Mia, who is usually so serene, discovers a new emotion: anger.


Leo investigates the Silo and track down the sniper who shot Ten. Hester promises to use peaceful methods in dealing with the killer, but Leo is not sure his ally can be trusted to keep her word. Mia faces falling into the hands of a mysterious organisation, and Karen makes an admission that rocks her relationship with Pete. Odi tries to find meaning in her life, and Sophie is fascinated by Renie's lifestyle emulating synth behaviour.
