The Power starts to lose its spark in “Baptism,” focusing on the lesser subplots and repetitive storylines. The series is still well-directed, but the plotting seems to be stalling somewhat, pushing forwards at a slower, frustrating pace.

As Urbandox gathers an army of new followers and certain governments plan to enslave their female population, those with the power start to train others, creating a movement in the process. “Baptism” follows the origins of these uprisings, as Roxy (Ria Zmitrowicz) and Allie (Halle Bush) teach others to feel empowered by their abilities.
