The Fayz, is old news to the outside world, till the government’s attempt at blowing it and quite possibly the extra bonus of it’s occupants to kingdom come, and now combined with it’s newest development, transparency, The Fayz is back on the map. Whether for better or for worse, only time will tell, which unfortunately due to recent events, seems to be in short supply. Now with the all parent’s flocking to the dome’s edge, with the world as an audience, the kids as a majority are nothing more than sitting ducks to the apparently even more powerful darkness in the shape of Gaia, who are nothing but desperately trying to communicate with their parents or the outside world. Another problem with this that communication with the outside world takes time, what with writing on any surface available with any material available and painstakingly waiting for a reply. But how can you blame them when they haven’t seen their parents for… well a fare amount of time, that may as well have been forever, for all those trapped care. But the biggest problem about this if the fact that the kids are all still going to get hungry, but if everyone’s down at the barrier and they’re all hungry, who and how will feed such masses with no one in the fields to provide the food? Thus the real question, then arises, who would be able to motivate them back to work. Well we all already know who, would be the perfect candidate, but whom is unfortunately ‘busy’ minding his own ‘business’, on effectively his own personal island. So if Albert is out of the spectrum, who could possibly replace him? And if such a simple problem could cause such chaos, what possible chaos could an organised threat reap? All this aside what happens if the dome were to open? Would they all be deemed criminals or would it just be a selected few?
Teen Rating: The problems just keep getting bigger and bigger, and yet the kids haven’t yet failed to thwart them. But what if the problems got smaller and more numerous, would they still be able to cope? If you’re looking for a nice round ending to the series, this is it. 3.7/5 14+
