Cassie and Jones look up the young Cole and his dad. Cassie has lost her wholesomeness and is bound and determined to prevent the plague. There are hints that Cole’s mother joined the Army of the 12 Monkeys. This was not emotionally resonant. Aaron is deluded into thinking that Cassie has merits that aren’t actually there. Cole has social dislocation. Pallid Man has lofty self regard. There is death. This episode was not ferocious and should be swiftly forgotten. How did Cole survive? Is the Pallid Man dead? Little Cole is dumped into foster care and meets not so little Ramse. And in 2043 Splinter is about to be attacked by Deacon and some weirdoes who look like the baddie from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.
“Then he left me.”
“This plant is not from our time.”
Mortal enemies Cole and Ramse meet. Ramse is the moral centre of this show. In 2043 the weirdoes, Deacon and a Spearhead survivor attack Splinter. In 2015 Jones’ husband shows up and there is no mention of the 12 Monkeys plate. Cole and Cassie are insufferable. What is the agenda of the Army of the 12 Monkeys? Why do they want a time machine? Why is Cole so unself aware and ungrateful? Ramse has surprising menace and all the monstrous acts were for naught. Cole can’t kill Ramse. But how does him being ‘bad’ tie in with events in ‘Atari’ and the alternate timeline?
Ramse says he isn’t The Witness. Vile creature Cassie does not listen and people get shot. This was good. What is Ramse’s agenda now? There is time travel and the Army of the 12 Monkeys and their cult indoctrination are awful. Cole is an ass. The Army of the 12 Monkeys plot and go on about cycles. Cole saves Ramse and changes fate. What is Deacon’s agenda? Can the future be changed? I’ll be there for season 2. Loved the ominous final scene of Jennifer and her jet.
“Your face hole.”
“The rest are meaningless.”
“I don’t really know him anymore.”
“This whole time it was you. Why?”
“It took time travel to create time travel.”
“Then stand down.”
“You can’t change the past. Nobody can.”
“They are going to be a problem.”
“The cycle is complete.”
“The Witness has spoken.”
“His future unknowable.”
“Scripted by time. Unmovable.”
“We’ll find another way.”
“What is this?”
“I have work to finish.”
Adam broods, has an all black wardrobe and sulky Charlotte is gleefully awful and Mason sees potential. There is bad acting, Shalimar showing off her pleather underwear and plot illogic. Charlotte uses her toxin on a GSA goon - shouldn’t he become good? There is green tinted overacting and it is never explained why Mason looks like Andy Warhol. Charlotte’s powers are supposed to be permanent on humans so she targets Adam; people are persistently stupid and fail to notice Adam’s sudden psychotic stares and smirking. He seems to be wearing lip-gloss which undercuts the menace.
Mason seems to have forgotten how Emma falcon punched him right in the face back in ‘Double Vision’. Evil Adam is suitably annoyed by his idiot protégées. Charlotte suddenly feels remorse over her actions because status quo is god. Charlotte’s mancandy is forgotten. Evil Adam chases Shalimar and menaces the gang of twits. Evil Adam is the only one of the gang not low on charisma and brain cells.
Mason eyes his arch enemy Evil Adam like he wants them to oil up and go at it. Evil Adam tasers Mason. The gang power walk toward Evil Adam, attack him one by one and Charlotte suddenly ‘fixes’ him. This was preposterous and throws all canonical logic aside. Where did Evil Adam get the lighter and the hose? This was underwhelming with bad dialogue and Charlotte gets away with her crap after everything? The trailer declared: who better to destroy Mutant X than the leader of Mutant X? There was no destroying sadly.
“All I do is kill plants! Not even big ones!”
“I change people.”
“Children of Genomex.”
“She can manipulate moral polarity.”
“Don’t use that tone on me Adam.”
“Did you know he was prone to this kind of behaviour when you hired him?”
“Need the files on brain re-systemisation.”
“Now he’s everyone’s worse nightmare. I don’t think he’s gonna bounce back from it.”
“Do I detect a conscience?”
“It’s kind of pointless.”
“You can’t do this.”
“All the men in your life have been a constant disappointment haven’t they?”
Harrison is famously uncaring. There is a lack of social realism. Bob and his bro-speak recoils. Harrison’s stupidity defies easy comprehension. The unfortunate circumstances, unfair system and portentous dialogue are mostly risible. The Trashman lurks. There is death, a creepy boyfriend and the private military guy acts callously. The insanely confident smug snake evil boyfriend gets a beat down. This wasn’t bad just really boring and unnecessary.
“This crude creature.”
“I shoot your face off.”
“I hated him. Everyone did.”
“Your father was a bastard.”
“Who’s doing that crap?”
“Shame on you!”
Sookie is grim and disapproving with her face locked in a determined grimace. Sarah has a vampire sister named Amber. The grossly insensitive and appalling Bill has flashbacks. Sookie still wants to do unnatural lewdness with him. Bill was anti civil war and involved in the Underground Railroad (of course he was). There is violence, gore and sap. Jessica has ebullient goujaterie. This show has no potential. Jessica’s inadequacy is pointed out. Boredom is prevalent. There is ranting, the awful Eric dresses like JR Ewing, Jason shags Jessica and the yakuza attack. Yawn.
“I have to go make tinkle.”
“Get out of my bar William Compton!”
