An image from Millennium: Siren.

A dull, meandering episode that is blighted further by the second season's fantasy milieu. There are more and more paranormal trappings with the dream scenario, Tamara's enchanting abilities, and the tape-recorder trick, and like “Beware of the Dog” and others before this, it feels rather like a rejected 'X-Files' script.

There are a few good points hidden in the shuffle, mainly the temptation sequence which is shot just off-kilter enough to give it that ethereal quality without giving the game away too soon, and ends with a frightening image of Jordan in the arms of the Devil. It's also good to see the story getting kick-started by Catherine and Jordan for a change, but unfortunately they soon fade away into the background.

Instead we have more “other woman” stuff going on with Lara Means, who wisecracks her way through the scenes of death and suffering in her usual incongruous manner. All the stuff with the Chinese seamen telling their conflicting stories is fairly laborious, and the plot is actually paper thin when you stop and think about it. Not a great deal happens, and it's not even style over substance ‐ there's very little of both. Even Mark Snow's usual flawless score is little clichéd. The ending is also very abrupt and lacking in meaning, as if we just ran out of time. Another weak episode that gets the show's tone all wrong.
