Review: Nexus

Our small band of anti-heroes meet their match and then some in Nexus. 

After breaking Bellweather out of a high security prison and racing to New Orleans where something big is about to go down, the edges of this motley group begin to unravel.

While they are struggling to work out who they trust, all hell breaks loose.

Murder is on the cards – murder on a much bigger scale than anyone imagined – and it all centres around a new Zero with irresistible charisma.

Can the original Zeroes learn to trust each other enough to overcome her plan to decimate civilisation as we know it?

Good guys and bad guys are like chameleons in this episode: it's hard to tell who's who. No wonder Nexus is intriguing high-octane drama.

The plot is complicated so keep your wits about you or you'll be lost in the crowd. And yes, there is a smidgin of romance simmering beneath the action.

So buckle up for the final instalment of Zeroes.

It's a keeper.
