Where did Drew get a nuclear fuel core? There is villanising and weasel words. Ryan has disgraceful ignorant stupidity. Flashbacks show the NATs doing work experience. Alex is sad (bless) about Ryan’s possibly malevolent nature. There is a fight and Ryan needs to die. This was okay.
“They are years away from being a threat.”
“He got shot for me. Twice.”
“What’s a post office?”
“I’m pretty sure that computer’s on fire. Then again I have been hallucinating a lot lately.”
“They’ll blame China.”
“I love her and her parents don’t.”
“You’re not fooling me again.”
“I believe you.”
“I’ll handle the consequences.”
“No I’m not and no-one ever will.”
“They zero you out.”
Some people live, another person dies and Henry Czerny of ‘Revenge’ and ‘The Tudors’ shows up as the head of the CIA. This had no visceral effectiveness. Claire is now VP. So how will the show deal with Trump being the real life POTUS? Grievances are expressed. The big bad has no considered reactions just smug emboldement. This was potent and ill-omened drama. There is no reputable clarity. Where is Sita? Alex is insufficiently horrified about a few things. Miranda’s son is dead. There is another frame up exposed. There is death and heroic sacrifice. There is no psychological drama or insightful examinations but I enjoyed this.
What became of Brandon? Shelby is awful. Where is Iris? The CIA wants Alex to work for them. Liam’s daughter shows up. Things come full circle. There is a motive rant about unresolved grievances and considerable stress and arrogant disregard and deep resolve. This was good, I’ll watch season 2.
“You made me do this.”
“You asked me not to count. A lot.”
“I’m not ashamed of what I’ve done.”
“You made a great scapegoat Alex.”
“You still love America and you think it loves you back. But it doesn’t. Never did.”
Who is just and righteous? A period of crisis passes. This was an improvement on the previous joyless grind of season 4. There is an air of jeopardy as grim reality hits Martha. She’s wearier. Philip aka Mikhail is contemptible. Matthew, Paige and Henry do not have a happy healthy home. Martha is wretched and unconnected. The loyal adherents see things fragment and blow apart. Dark and menacing Philip tells Elizabeth he loves her with a cold stare. Gaad is stunned and there is no moral management. Martha faces a lonely exile and this was good.
“Did a cemetery walk.”
“Some version of the truth that’s not very true.”
“There’s nowhere to go.”
“She needs that hope.”
“Martha is married to a KGB officer.”
“They seduced and married my secretary.”
“I don’t speak Russian.”
William Mapother runs around and acts like a wayward heir on a drug bender. Kara has a keen sense of destiny. This was dire. Kara isn’t utterly charming despite what TPTB think. James is treated as an annoyance. James and Winn rant. They’re inherently different to season 1. Chris Wood plays a spoilt and wilful brat. Interest is rescinded. Alex confronts people.
Kara always has to be jollier than anyone else. Alex’s chief obsession is getting a plaything for her lady parts. Chris Wood plays a brat and people have constant complaints about his awfulness. Alex does something dumb. Chris Wood’s character deserves hostility and is one of the insurmountable hurdles to quality this season. James dons a stupid supersuit to do heroics. Martian blood is red, James gets a dumb hero name and Chris Wood is dragged into a van. I just did not care. This was unwatchable.
