Stitchers - Full Stop

Stitchers‘ largely disappointing First Season comes to close with a shooting involving Cameron (Kyle Harris) and Fisher (Damon Dayoub) that will leave the police officer in the ICU and lead the scientist to risk his own life to discover the identity of the shooter. Breaking all the rules of the show by allowing Cameron to temporarily stop his own heart and allow Kirsten (Emma Ishta) to immediately stitch into him to see the shooting (remember how every stitch to this point has taken hours of set-up time?), “Full Stop” confirms the truth about Kirsten’s condition (shown to audiences weeks before) and takes coincidence well past believable levels by linking Kirsten and Cameron all the way back to childhood.

Stitchers - Fire in the Hole

The poorly-planned procedures and questionable decision making that has been a staple of the Stitchers program since it was introduced in the show’s first episode nearly gets everyone in the lab killed when the group decides to stitch into a recently-deceased scientist carrying a deadly virus that their systems were unable to detect. Quarantined and cut-off from the outside world attempt to make peace with their circumstances while studying the scientist’s final moments in hopes of discovering a cure. Far less tense than it should be, “Fire in the Hole” never sells us on the idea that any of the characters are in any real danger (even with the added number of lab stand-ins in the episode).
