Plenty of things happened in this installment to the Not Quite series, but in the end, nothing changed. I didn’t see much character development, and though Sam had a sexy interlude with a new character, nothing about the conclusion hinted that there might be more to the relationship.
I got the feeling that Draper doesn’t quite know where she’s going with any of Sam’s potential relationships beyond this point, so we were instead treated to a filler adventure that shows off more of the greater world. It was enjoyable, and I was certainly not bored, but I wanted overarching plot rather than monster-of-the-week episode in this tale.
Fans of the series certainly shouldn’t give up here. I’m not, and I’m anxiously awaiting the next installment of this unique post-apocalyptic world.
