Are the characters in The Event making drastic changes from who they were originally developed to be? The short answer is yes. Suddenly Sean’s a killer and Sophia is a super villain. Sure you could argue that extreme situations call for extreme action but to completely deviate from who a person is at their core seems just a little unrealistic. The President has changed too, throwing out any remaining moral code he started the series with. Sophia may still have a hidden game that reverts her to the more benevolent representative of the aliens that she once was but it seems doubtful. The most fascinating reveal this week has to do with the “sentinels” meant to protect the Earth from the aliens. This mysterious third party is sure to throw a monkey wrench in the works. Complaints aside the episode offered up the goods with tense drama, twists and turns including more family matters, and action.
