An old friend is back

The team loses contact with a settlement, and decides to go and investigate. When they arrived, they soon see that everyone seems to have disappeared, but soon afterwards they discover one life sign in an underground system, and go to investigate.

This episode ditches the sunny environments for a subterranean tunnel system. So, lots of dark rooms and corridors, where what's happening is difficult to see, and, because of that, to enjoy. That doesn't mean it isn't fun, because it is, and sometimes is good to ditch the camp and cheesy for some dark and bleak episode. "Vengeance" is an homage to Alien with its atmosphere and dangerous creature (there is even one reference to it by one of the characters) and it is a competent effort in that respect. But it is kind of just the characters running around and shooting in the dark, and the tension is a little bit lacking. It does bring, though, a new interesting plot development, that may be developed in further episodes.
