Max and Logan find themselves caught up in a spellbinding kidnapping case, that takes surprising turns when they learn the boy is the son of the infamous Mr. White.

- The title of this episode comes from the oft-quoted “The medium is the message”, by H. Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980), a Canadian author, teacher, and intellectual. McLuhan’s statement, made in 1966, referred to his destain of television, and the fact that television producers didn’t really care what was being said, only that people watched.
Question: What was your reaction when it was revealed that White is as – if not more – ‘superhuman’ than a transgenic? Do you think the whole breeding cult thing increased or decreased the appeal of Dark Angel?
