      Note: the big part of this show is revealed in this review. Some people don’t like to be spoiled, so I just want you to know in advance that I’m giving away the biggest part of the story.

      John Doe: Ashes to Ashes is probably the most intense episode of the John Doe series, which only lasted one season. There are a couple of episodes remaining which I haven’t yet viewed, but this one was pretty strong and it’s

      hard to imagine anything overtaking it’s built in angst and heart-ripping turmoil.

      The beginning of this particular program is very upbeat and celebratory. The character of Karen Kawalski is achieving some success with her painting career, and she actually wins an award, so she’s flying high; that is, until she has the misfortune to end up at John Doe’s loft right in the middle of a perceived bomb threat. One thing leads to another and Karen kidnapped and killed.

      • truth, and I’ve said it before in reviews, I never liked Karen. She seemed out of place and in her earliest shows, she annoyed me big time. Though I liked how creative and outside the box she could be, I just never warmed to the character, so it’s hard for me to feel a loss here.

        That said, the characters definitely felt the death. Dominic Purcell, as John Doe, did some decent emotional work here as he deals

        with Karen’s death. The best moment is when he says goodbye to her by talking to the painting she had just completed. What happens with respect to that painting is actually quite poignant and a great idea.

        There’s a lot of suspense and drama, naturally. It’s a show that keeps us on the run with the characters. As sendoffs go, Karen got a decent one, going out with a bang instead of just being an also ran.
