Stitchers - Connections

Perhaps realizing how short of run the series is likely to have given the quality of writing so far Stitchers wastes no time to start pairing off characters into romantic relationships while beginning to explore the mystery of the lives who created the program and continuing to underline the dangers of it as Kirsten (Emma Ishta) becomes lost in her latest stitch unable to separate her own feelings from that of a victim (Hina Abdullah) whose husband (Michael Grant Terry) looks guilty for her murder.

"Connections" is another sub par entry into the series featuring Kirsten continually blundering into situations which should have gotten her arrested or murdered many times over by this point in the series. As expected, Maggie (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) has some secret connection to Kirsten's family which despite being the one responsible for bringing the unqualified girl into the program she still feels a need to keep secret. The reveal may or may not eventually make Maggie's conflicting actions on the show make sense, but as of now it just feels like drawn-out subplot for its own sake. The somewhat rushed pairing of Linus (Ritesh Rajan) and Camille (Allison Scagliotti) is the most enjoyable piece of the episode, making "Connections" marginally better than the two previous episodes, even if the office banter needs some serious work.
