The penultimate episode of THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY brings out the action, suspense and finally moves the freaking plot forward! I was about to “jump off a cliff” out of boredom each week, with a show more concerned with style versus having a cohesive story.
The entire gang has to make some big decisions. From Reynie (Mystic Inscho) starting to lead, Sticky (Seth Carr) picking a side, Kate (Emmy DeOliveira) learning that teamwork is better than going at it alone, and Constance (Marta Kessler)…well, she was just her sarcastic self.
The “Emergency” is now in overdrive. The entire world is at risk of losing its free will. We have one episode left on Disney+ to see if this frustratingly uneven first season can get off the island to stick the landing.
