Odelle’s husband moves on, Peter’s boring wife is an idiot, ursine malevolence is everywhere, there is muttering about Black Sands and Peter has no winsome integrity. The sinister pressure and intertangled plot threads are bloated and boring. Odelle sees her funeral and still acts stupidly. Mutual recriminator Peter man-handles someone whilst acting like a paranoid nutter due to unending threats. Ruby shags her boss (Connor Trinneer). This was dire and un-involving.
“There is a plan.”
“You don’t even miss her.”
“Why would I do that? How would I do that?”
Sookie bullies Holly manically. Jason is an ass. Jessica and James have issues. Sookie is awful. Flashbacks to 1996 show how college girl Ginger met Eric and Pam. Flashbacks to 2006 show how Ginger has given up college to work in the video store and she came up with the idea for the vampire bar which Pam stole. Vampires are awful. Sad music plays. Eric and Willa reunite. There is a rescue mission, idiots, a fight, Terry visits and Arlene nearly dies. This was detestable and sorely lacking.
“Close your mouth dear.”
“What are you?”
“Your nasty place.”
“You’re the law.”
“This place smells like sperm and piss and bad hair dye.”
“Put those away.”
“Oh good, there’s more.”
“I can make her remember.”
“I trust you.”
“We have a Christian to kill.”
“I triggered an avalanche that killed an entire ski village.”
Who is The Witness who leads the Army of the 12 Monkeys? The Army of the 12 Monkeys are like The Dawn in the 90s show ’The Burning Zone’. Both want to end the world. In 2043 Ramse learns something. But where did the photos come from? In 2015 there is a thing in the vault and Jennifer is menaced with a rat. This was excellent with a twist.
“The Big Burn is a better out.”
“You can’t save everyone.”
“Cole wasn’t the first was he?”
“Thank you. You can go now.”
“I remember enough.”
“In a 1000 generations we would not rebuild what was lost!”
Aaron is worried about Wexler, a CIA whistleblower. There are mentions of Operation Troy. Cole menaces Aaron who reiterates his dislike of Cole. There is talk of the Brotherhood. Cassandra is in peril. The Army of the 12 Monkeys act in revolting fashion. Is Aaron trustworthy? Poor choices and decisions are made. Aaron learns the truth. This was very good.
“Nice job jackass.”
Wexler is scathing and has plaintive insolence. Cole, Aaron and Cassandra refight battles and face hard stares. There are disturbing failures of virus control and imprecision in decision making. Wexler lacks diligence and self control and he knew about the Army of the 12 Monkeys. Cassandra has endless lamentations. This was kind of turgid and guest star Stephen McHattie did little.
“You just look.”
“I’m in the middle of the woods. No bleach.”
“You’ve no idea what you’ve just done.”
“It’s over. For everyone.”
“A pointless endeavour.”
“Not even the immune can survive another one.”
“What did she do now?”
“They were all lost in the fires when Atlanta fell.”
