Balleseros escapes condemnation and spins a tale but is it true? There is no emotional attachment to Walker and she gets way too much TV time. The promise of the premise may have been thrown away in season 2 so I’ve no plans to watch it. This ep was ephemeral and absurd if not effective and evocative. Walker hallucinates a woman named Jaye.
Where were social services during Alan and Peter’s crazily abusive childhood? Sarah has a tumour. Peter ups his personal betrayal and makes it gruesomely clear that he is an ass. Dr evil has a secret staircase. Peter is surrounded by an almost tangible cloud of sleaze, he and Walker are awful. Why are Walker’s initials carved on a wall in the base? Doreen unlocks one secret too many so Balleseros kills her in gruesome fashion. The infected fear Dr evil. What is the virus and what is it for? Why is Balleseros doing such horrific things? This was okay.
“Am I the only one here alarmed by this?”
“My work here is protected. Even from you.”
“Is that bad?”
“This Fox Mulder crap.”
Who is Dr Hvit? Daniel has a bone of contention. This was not intellectually fascinating. Who has the bosses that Balleseros has such commendable loyalty to? Is he really US military? Sarah has tremors and shoots up and makes out with Alan. He lectures her on drug use. He’s full of deep burning anger. Then he and Daniel uncover Balleseros’ dealings.
Why is there a frozen head in the snow? This was okay. Alan confronts Balleseros in a display of bad acting. Daniel attacks Balleseros with an ice axe and leaves him to die. Sarah lies.
Balleseros is opportunistic and has done really horrific things. Why are the eps so short? Walker hallucinates more. The premise gets more outlandish. Balleseros has been captured by an Inuit woman who screeches like a pompous idiot. Balleseros has a behavioural shift. Alan is all dreary sameness. There is not the slightest remorse from anyone. Balleseros encounters a doppelganger of Daniel the ever so dreary. I’m sick of Inuit woman’s indignant attitude. Walker hallucinates Balleseros in a spiffy uniform. Alan and Sarah hook up. Walker changes and this was okay.
“What is all this?”
“They will come.”
Walker bandages her eyes. Where have all the raging infected gone? I’ve a lukewarm response to this. Balleseros learns Daniel is a stolen Inuit child and has a long lost twin brother and screechy woman is his older sister. Sutton uses an angle-grinder on her teeth. WTF? Balleseros is Brazilian. Alan is combative. Balleseros is undergoing a redemption myth. Nobody acts seriously and calmly. Daniel meets his sister. This was not even borderline terrifying. I don’t care about Daniel and his slender role in the narrative.
The infected run from Walker and her silver eyes. Sutton has silver eyes too. Sutton and Balleseros make out. I feel indifference and disappointment. This is an ugly situation. Tactless prat Daniel gets through a traumatic issue. This was stupid. The morally problematic Balleseros has suffered serious badass decay and is now oddly convivial. Dr evil has arrogant insouciance. Retroactive back-story applies and this is intriguing but frustrating.
