"No Ordinary Family." That's ABC's Tuesday night show. Last night was a pretty solid episode. Mainly because it had a lot of Stephanie (and Katie).
Katie's boyfriend was 'ill.' He was really going through withdrawals from the serum that gives him super powers (he can do things with his mind). He walked out on the bad guys when he decided he loved Katie. She, of course, has no idea.
But she could tell he looked sick. She called Stephanie and arranged to show up there and have Stephanie look at him.
The new bad person with too much hair (blond woman) and who can shape shift (and tried to kill Katie last episode) sees them and causes an alarm to go off indicating there was a radiation leak (there was none). So Stephanie, Katie, the boyfriend and bad woman are sealed in together. BW suggests to Katie that she and Katie go looking around and Katie agrees over the objection of her boyfriend (she used to call him "Will" but he finally revealed that was fake, I think she calls him "Josh" now). Bad woman knocks Katie out and shape shifts into her.
Stephanie knows Josh is in withdrawal (she's a doctor) but he insists he's just sick and won't let her take his blood. He goes off. He meets Katie in the hall (Bad Woman) and they talk and kiss when he realizes she's not Katie. She shape shifts back into Bad Woman and laughs at him and leaves him lying on the ground.
She then goes into the lab and says to Stephanie that they'll need lots of ice for some experiment. Stephanie uses her super power (speed) to get it and is back right away revealing her super power to shape shifter.
Then Katie walks in and there are now two Katies. They eventually decide on a quiz but Bad Woman has studied up on Katie. So Stephanie asks her what she did last week for the first time. (She lost her viriginity.) Bad Woman has no idea while real Katie steps up to Stephanie who asks her not to and why she's moving closer. Katie explains she doesn't want to say out loud that she just lost her virginity.
Stephanie hugs Katie and they're glad to know who the real Katie is and not watching Shape Shifter who slams a metal object against Stephanie's head knocking her out. She then holds Katie and prepares to inject her in order to kill her.
But Josh comes to, injects himself with the super power serum and rushes in to knock Bad Woman through plate glass, knocking her out (but not killing her). Katie's shocked by Josh's powers. And Stephanie comes to and I don't know if she realizes Josh has powers or if she thinks he physically threw Bad Woman through the glass (he did it with his mind). But a second later, they look over and Bad Woman is gone.
Jim? He did a weak storyline that was a Die Hard rip-off (and that they kept noting was like Die Hard) while JJ and Daphne did a Breakfast Club remake (went to detention). The best part of the show was the Stephanie and Katie storyline.
Now Stephanie's not worried or concerned that Shape Shifter knows she has a super power. Has it not hit Stephanie yet? I don't know.
But Josh was supposed to study Stephanie and her family to find out what they could do, remember? Then he turned on the bad guys. And they haven't known what, if any, powers the family had from their accident (which obviously was not an accident but a test they were put through without their knowledge -- or I say that's obvious).
So now they know or will in a bit.
Worst part of the episode? When they really made you think Katie might be about to die. She has no super powers but she's a really important part of the show. Not just because she's funny (she is) but because the actress has really made Katie fully dimensional.
