Healing Passion
26 January 2019 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

This is my fifth favorite episode of the show, this is not an episode you'd see every day, I'll admit this is the kind of episode I never thought I'd ever see, it's almost feels like one Paul Verhoeven would have directed as this episode is erotic drama. It's true that by today's standards in most TV shows they have scenes of eroticism but never a full episode based on it as this was one of the first and still the best in my book.

There's not a lot I can say about this episode as it's basically, we see both Liz and Max are in the heat of passion. I really like how the making out scenes are executed and how both are exercising their feelings as there is innocence to it. One scene that were interesting and beautiful was a little moment when Liz drops the pencil on purpose and Max touches her fingers, she gets some images in her mind and then of course she gives a slight orgasmic cry in the classroom. Its mas have just been a little touch but that touch is enough to ignite the strong passion now heating up to smoldering hot.

I even like there are some sexual overtones in these episodes like the Strawberries which are of course consider a fruit to awaken passion. Or even the fact that both Liz and Max both are in the same chemistry class. I even like some of the dialog in this episode, one thing I really liked hearing Liz say is, "I can't stop" I thought "yeah don't".

I really like how both Max and Liz react and feel about what their doing as their both excited and scared, it's easy to relate to like with most people that start to experience these feelings for the first time toward another. From Liz whom is now just discovering feelings of passion she never knew she had and a new feature or two with Max, despite an experienced welder of his power there are still some things about his alien biology and culture he doesn't know about, likewise with the human side.

The flashing images is interesting, which is obviously metaphor for sex because the thing about making love is you are literally letting someone inside you both physically but also depend on how deep the connection is intimate/spiritual; it really feels like you are starting to become one person as we see in the shared memories both have.

Max and Liz make beautiful chemistry.
