Although he is injured, he manages to get out of the vehicle.
The second episode of Glitch was just as compelling as the first and actually managed to enhance the series. The addition of John Doe was great and brought a potentially evil character to the array. Kate and Maria’s discoveries added a little turmoil and heartbreak to the series. Vic will likely become a thorn in James’ side throughout. Finally, Paddy and Beau continue providing the series with humor. We can only hope they stick together forever!
This episode deserves an 8 out of 10. Be sure to check out our other Glitch recaps now!
