The Labyrinth, Part 2 Review

I was doing some checking, and it's been nearly 5 months since I reviewed the first part of the Labyrinth... And I can say this is one of my favorites to have to review.

The Labyrinth, Part 2

This part opens with Sue and Dale handing the briefcase, that they got from Jason's hotel room, over to Jason. Sue's line "What's a typewriter" cracks me up every time,
because whenever children hear this episodes they'll never really be able to picture a typewriter unless they Google it. Jason is forced to investigate the situation by himself because the authorities are looking for him. (Refer to part one for why.) This part takes a while to pick up pace. Jason and the Jacobs follow a lead from what Mycroft Thugg said, to an auction house. The pieces are slow to come together for Jason. However, after looking at the catalog they find a couple items from Hong Kong, and the Prominent Company. Jason says that this is connected to Mr Grote.  I wonder why Mr. Grote didn't use a fake Company to throw Jason off. However, at this point Jason doesn't have any facts to show specifically what Mr. Grote is up to. Side note: the accents are terrific.
From here the pieces seem to come quickly for Jason. They learn about an accident in the loading house involving some sort of toxic chemical and Jason is immediately suspicious. Jason plans to go to the hospital to find more about what happened. Up till now Jason thought this was another counterfeit scheme. Jason gives some codes to give to Dale to set up his "Alamo program". They set up a warning flag with the words "You know Jason, the real Alamo ended in tragedy." And Jason's reply, "I know that's why I call it my Alamo".
I was really glad that Sue joined back up with Jason. I figured she wouldn't be gone for long.
The scene with Agent Billings is really intense. Jason gets more information handed to him, and now he's aware that a powder is the threat from Grote. The idea of a biological weapon has been used in Odyssey before. But this time is much more complicated. Jason is captured by Grote and reveals what the Alamo does to him.

A lot of information was given in this episode but there really wasn't a whole lot of action.

Sue: That's it? No bazookas or poison pills, or satellite dishes?

Interest level: 4.5/5

With that, that wraps up my review. What did you think of this episode?
This has been Freddy Jay connecting the gap between Odyssey and YOU!
