Savage has Kendra and Carter, nobody cares. Snart hits on Sara. This ep is extremely redundant. The franchise fixated TPTB have given no good reason for this show to exist and have run it into the ground. The gang babble about the oculus wellspring. There are mega-fights and no great tactical effect. This was not robust and people keep self-sacrificing. Snart and Sara kiss. Snart maybe dies. I felt cold indifference. The time masters engineered history and now can’t do it anymore. This sucked hard.

The Resistance have callow cruelty and ludicrously exaggerated insouciance. Snyder’s daughter Cynthia is in a loveless environment and Snyder is out on his ear and faces seriously negative consequences. Cynthia wants no part of his value system. Did Beau get to his cabin? Maddie gets Hudson, Gracie and the dog to Nolan’s. Nobody asks why an alien was travelling by train. Nolan is delighted by his side-ho, kids and dog. The fate of his wife does not trouble Nolan (Adrian Pasdar) or Maddie.
Nolan and Maddie plan a pastoral romance. Jennifer knows Katie’s crap. Will is deliciously subdued. Bram and his teacher do stupid stuff. Katie is a nut job with an aura of insincerity. The plan to cut open the alien’s body armour suit fails. The Resistance don’t care about reprisals due to their sense of conviction and protest narrative. Will imposes order over chaos. The Resistance are morons and Katie has to be boffing Broussard.
Thora Birch does nothing. Will ends up with a transit pass. Who is the new Proxy? Is Snyder headed for the Factory? Snyder shows grace as the axe falls. Braless Maddie enjoys being Nolan’s ho especially as he is the new chief of staff to the new Proxy. The tutor shows up to join the party. Bram and his teacher are busted. Is the teacher a narc? What is in the exclusion zone? Katie is at home alone and yes their house is bugged and Katie is not as smart as she thinks. This was good and I’ll be there for season 2.
