Excellent episode!

Certainly left me hanging for the finale... what the bloody hell was that thing in the Earth? Anyone got any ideas?

The last ep better pay off!

Better be something darned good to account for blowing all the science of a molten core to heck. It just looked like a giant vertical crack to me.

I lose track of how many things are at the centre of the earth in the whoniverse... racnoss ships, silurian tunnels, green slime rendering humans neandrathol, giant crack... seriously...

It's no wonder the lifeform can pass through the core. They've stuffed so much stuff in there over the years that there's no more magma.

I enjoyed the episode. I'm looking forward to the finale! :) I wonder what's in the crack?

must resist crude joke, must resist crude joke, must resist......

OK, I'm getting a horrible feeling that the ending to this story is going to be utter pants, this has the same feel to it that Caprica had, where they'd look like they were going in a good direction storywise, only to throw something completely new and previously unknown into the mix and follow that story instead.

It's good, don't get me wrong, but the stories were better earlier in the series before the lady Dr got cooked, after that it kind of became a bit disjointed.

How can Rex not see that blondie is a traitor????They've been working together for quite a while, so even her ridiculously leading questions might not immediately catch on. That and contractual genre blindness.

Did the blessing appear bloody to any else? Maybe they've been putting it in blood banks for decades in preparation for the miracle.

I thought this episode was ok, new info yes, but kinda meh

I'm not really excited about the next ep, I want to know about the solution, but it's not like I have to know it as soon as possible. :S

Why this is a good episode, it was an episode that should have came much earlier in the season, around episode 5 or 6 if I am to be honest.

Q should have been a main character from the beginning.
Now I am guesting the family use Jack blood to reactive or bring the blessing alive. An I am guesting it will be jack blood that will turn it off, which is why the family been trying to kill him. It lucky that Blondy has been harvesting his blood for sometime, so he does not have to jump over that balcony.

I am more interested in finding out about phase 2 of what ever there ground plan is, which was mention in a preview for the next episode than I am in learning about the creature.

I am also wondering whether Jack knows the outcome of these events anyway, being from the future and all, I am pretty sure miracle day, the events leading up to it and the events after it would be a major chapter in Earth history that children would be force to learn about in the future.

An I got a feeling this is all going to end up in a cliff hanger anyway, there are far to many loose ends to tie up in a single episode, an the Families history sounds interesting.

Through I am kind of hoping Oswald Danes stay with the Torchwood team for next season, if we get a next season, yes he evil but he does cause a nice conflict amongst the team, which is entertaining to watch, more entertaining than the conflict between Gwen and Jack which is just getting repetitive now.

I am guesting I am not the only one who wants to know where jack gets his memory loosing potion from.

Also why would Torchwood shut down an operation bring alien technology out of China, surely they would want to take control of such an operation for there own purposes.

I think what annoyed me most was the fact Gwen's father was expertly hidden, yet the guy leaves and comes back with a new app for iPhone that gives his camera magic thermal vision.

No one dying I can accept, a creature that stretches all the way to the other side of the planet I can accept, but I'm calling BS on that.

Not a great episode. It seemed to make Jack being slot episode pointless other than the fact they needed his blood to drip at the end. I thought Rhys abusing Oswald was unnecessary other than the fact he tricked his way into the house and held his daughter and I can't stand they haven't figured out who the CIA mole is. I really (and I man REALLY) hate when the one person you trust most is the one betraying you. It's a tired and clichéd concept

Red rocks that seem to defy gravity, heading inwards towards an endless void. I'm wondering if it is some kind of bleed-through effect from a alternate dimension or something. Perhaps the Miracle is powered from that effect.

That, or it's just Mother Natures' v****a. Certainly looks like one, lol! :lol:

1. Not quite sure why Jack feels he needs Oswald.

2. Thermal imaging camera in mobile - unlikely.

3. Crack in centre of world - my guess is that it's recently created.

4. Rex is already screwed it seems - let's see what goes down in Beunos Aires.
