On Stitchers season 3 episode 3, one of the best ways to sum up that story is rather clear: Striving for perfection can lead to sickening results. We saw that play out this week in the main case, as we saw how far a man was willing to go in order to find perfection in someone else. Eventually, it became so impossible for him that he strove to find it via some artificial means.
The idea of seeing a doll with recording technology in it was certainly disturbing, but there was one thing that the show did that was certainly interesting: Kirsten seeing someone as reality through the stitch world, even if they were a doll in reality. That further signified that what she’s seeing is a manifestation of what the deceased memories wanted to see. That’s a nice twist incorporated into the story to mix things up from the procedural side.
Beyond all of this, the biggest twist with the case was more of a behavioral one, brought on in part by seeing this new dynamic play out with Cameron leading the tea. To call this an “adjustment period” would be an understatement, given that he has to learn to compartmentalize being the boss with also being her boyfriend. That isn’t easy, and he especially didn’t care for it when she showed a little bit of attitude to him in front of other members of the team.
Rest assured, the two were fine by the end of the episode and some of their issues were resolved. That’s especially good news when you consider that the two parties were having some intimacy issues, to put it mildly, at the start of the episode that were causing her some struggles on the job.
In other romantic development
Amanda and Camille are getting closer together romantically! Their moment tonight with the song was all sorts of sweet. You can argue that this relationship is moving forward rather quickly, but it’s also not one we’re altogether upset over. It provides Camille such a different energy than she had with Linus in the past, and there’s this fun sense of music and spirit of adventure that is there. It’s a fun story, but one that will probably need some more bumps in the road by the time we get to the end of it.
Overall, “Perfect” was another good episode of Stitchers in between the very creepy case, the romance, and a little bit of the twist and turns that came along the way. Do we wish that there was more development on Kirsten’s mother? Certainly, but hopefully that is something that will come in due time. Grade: B.
