Manhattan, Ep. 2.10, “Jupiter”

The closing moments of Manhattan’s second season finale, “Jupiter,” are simply terrifying. A blinding white light obliterates the screen and then dissipates to reveal a crackling, howling mushroom cloud licking at the sky, the bone-chilling birth announcement of an evil genie forever burst from its bottle.

Manhattan, Ep. 2.08, “Human Error”

In Manhattan, everyone is an experienced information broker by necessity and design, and, in another strong episode, “Human Error” shows how this eats away at everyone’s relationships and also allows them to twist information inequities to their advantage.

Manhattan, Ep. 2.07, “Behold the Lord High Executioner”

After last week’s “33” efficiently set the table for the last few episodes, “Behold the Lord High Executioner” goes back and grabs the loose threads of Jim’s storyline and starts to wrap them around his throat. For most of the episode, it plays as a spy thriller worthy of The Americans.
