V “Serpent’s Tooth” Season 2 Episode 2 – I was lucky enough to see the second episode of V before it aired, and I am forever in debt to the nice people over at Warner Bros. since I felt like I was already going through withdrawal from the premiere.
“Serpent’s Tooth” is another amazing episode of V, and one that lives up (if not surpasses) the second season premiere. From the beginning “Serpent’s Tooth” sucks you in and you have no chance of looking away from your television for the 42 minutes it airs.
Beginning with a conversation between Anna and her mother, we learn exactly why Diana has been in the bowls of the ship for so long. The reasoning ties into Anna’s rule in a much deeper way than I had initially thought, and the outcome of the conversation had me raising both of my eyebrows. It also left me wanting MUCH more between the queen and former queen, but I will wait (semi) patiently and see what occurs between Anna and Diana.
Without giving too much of the plot of “Serpent’s Tooth” away, the episode is also heavy with Ryan and his relationship with his child; and the decisions that he makes in regard to Anna. Suffice to say, Anna has found a way to get under his skin, and will not stop until she has Ryan right where she wants him.
The most exciting part of the episode for me was Erica. All love for Elizabeth Mitchell aside, the things that go on with Erica made me throw my hands up when “Serpent’s Tooth” had ended. It will make you wish that you had the next episode. I know it left me speechless a few times, and actually had me throw up my hands in frustration at one point.
The effects on V are great for a prime time sci-fi show. There was a scene with Anna and Ryan’s baby that made me cringe in the best way possible.
I don’t want to say too much more about “Serpent’s Tooth” because I’m having a hard enough time not spoiling anything for you! Just suffice to say that V remains the best hour of television that I’ve seen in a very long time; and I can’t wait for the rest of season 2!
