Going into Monday night, Freeform wasn’t revealing a whole lot about the upcoming Stitchers season 3 episode 6. The title was “The Gremlin and the Fixer,” but that was about it in terms of what was known. There was no official synopsis, and as a result of that, most of what we’ve got to go on stems more from what we learned on the show tonight.
Update: That’s now changed! Check out the synopsis below:
“After an engineer ends up dead, his colleague and work-rival becomes a suspect. However, upon examining some stitches, Kirsten and the team uncover that he was a part of an underground-gaming club. The team race to save a falling satellite, while Cameron takes a walk on the wild side when he infiltrates the gaming ring to get close to another suspect.”
One of the biggest things comes mostly from a relationship standpoint, and that’s rather simple: There are many pairings within the world of the show in trouble at the moment. For Kirsten and Cameron at the moment, much of it comes down to trust. Her mother isn’t in the same location anymore, and she understandably blames him for it. He was a little too open to Maggie, and that may be what caused the problem for them.
Meanwhile, we’ve also got another relationship falling apart in Camille and Amanda, which is so interesting given that they were so close just a matter of a week ago. The problem here mostly is that Camille’s got such a history of trauma that she’s afraid of getting close to people. Right when things were going well, she pushed her new girlfriend away and she’s now gotta find a way to get her back and make sure that she knows that is trusted and very special to her. If she can do that, then they have a chance to have a relationship that stands the test of time.
In general, we’d say that the jury is still out on Linus and Ivy, but it’s worth watching just because they’re such opposites. Sometimes, that attracts. Other times, it makes things fall apart in a fairly catastrophic fashion.
About the promo below
This is mostly about the case of the week, and seeing the team start to dive more into the world of underground video gaming. If this turns out to be anywhere near as exciting as the promo is, odds are that we’re going to have a fairly fun episode. Unfortunately, there is also the doubt / fear that Cameron and Kirsten don’t end up making it, given that they don’t know entirely how to fix it no matter how much they may want to figure it out.
