The Kennedy Curse
JFK does a bad and annoying accent. How do they power the time machine in their not so secret lair? Lucy says JFK is responsible for the civil rights act, no he’s not. That was LBJ. People help JFK who seems off his meds. Wyatt’s annoying wife annoys. JFK is taken to a hospital, who pays for that? The annoying new baddie and Emma and Lucy’s awful mother plot.
The annoying woman is carried off. Flynn is not in this ep much. What did he do while stuck in 1934? This was not good. Lucy’s mother menaces the annoying woman. Wyatt’s annoying wife annoys. There are stupid plot contrivances and Lucy has to talk her into staying with him. Wyatt loves his wife; she doesn’t love him as much. JFK convinces a random that he is the JFK. Lucy lies and tells JFK he was one of the greatest presidents - no he wasn’t!

Without A Tracer
Jeff Perry, Danica McKella and John Vickery guest star. The GM lawyer repeats the theme park abduction/dyed hair urban legend. Meanwhile a man is berated by his fiancée. This ep is an unbelievably bleak depiction of people and the future. The sexist pervs. There are differing motivations and drives. It turns out the girl faked her abduction to get her chip cut out. She wants privacy and overacts wildly. There are no narrative through-lines.
The man says his ex turned on his mate finder and has her dragged to court, it turns out he turned it on himself. What a prince. Nobody apologises for harassing his ex and dragging her to court. People go on about their PDAs. Nestor (whose character name is still unclear) says he was a teen hacker. Sense is not judiciously maintained. The sexist whines about getting no sex.
The show can’t deal with the law and concomitant cultural changes. The girl has an acute stress response to being watched. She’s blameworthy by her parents and their defence lawyer (Perry) for being female. Nobody has moral status. The girl’s doctor/patient confidentiality is breached. She wants to seek joy. The parents are morally obligated, they say, to watch their child. The girl wistfully wants freedom. The parent’s protective mechanism is to guard her from sex and drugs and self harm, which is regressive and avoidant. There was dubious questionable parental intent.
The girl does not like the life she leads, she did not choose it. Her mother says she has a moral obligation to have a psychosexual obsession with her child. The fiancée’s man is a jerk. There is sexism and nobody is respectfully obliged to treat women with respect. The girl goes missing and people panic because she went to the beach. People dismiss the girl as a very difficult child. The firm shame the fiancée into marrying the gaslighting, ex harassing, cheating, lying, emotionally abusive jerk. Seriously WTF? They accept his story that he acts the way he does because he loves her. This was subpar, no wonder it was axed.

The Demon’s Head
Gordon has self-righteous anger. Bruce lies and makes no carefully considered decisions. There are irrational tirades. A dog boy gurns. Sofia (Crystal Reed of ‘Teen Wolf’) prances and has informed intent. This was unglamorous and everybody has a refusal to consider compromise. There are no curious observers of dog boy dogging around the city. Seriously a dog boy? Who is defeated by throwing a bone through a window that he chases after? Are the writers having a laugh?
Ra’s Al Ghul dresses like a librarian. Alex bigs up Bruce. Alfred lies and yells and there are moral outs. Bruce is a terrible person and gets Alex killed. Cue more terrible acting. Why does Gordon keep on giving Bruce preferential treatment? Riddler shouts. Gordon and porno lips Sofia get it on. This was terrible.
“You’re lying. Again.”
“Knocking Victor! We discussed this!”
“Not you! The other Victor!”
“Live alone in a mansion, don’t go to school.”
“I would plant roses, they cover up the smell.”
“My other Victor.”
Where Is Simon
Simon hangs out with his mistress and her brat. One of her children is still in Iran with her controlling husband. Identical beardy men gurn. Liv broods. An old dude rides a scooter. Simon’s mistress does not know she is the mistress apparently. Everybody is weirdly unemotional. Some dude wears a cravat. The mistress is travelling on someone’s stolen identity. There are lies.
Simon has no regrets for his lies and affair. Liv’s in laws treat her badly and plan to steal her son. Some useless whining woman throws away her pills. Simon is a sleaze. The criminal is a criminal. Simon finds out about the plane crash, he’s not very smart is he? Simon is grabbed and bundled in a car. This was dull and I’m done. Simon's mistress is married to a bad man, he helped her run away and is now in trouble. So?
Cassie lies and somehow no one notices she had a baby. Shouldn’t she still be bleeding? Meanwhile after their escape Cassie and Deacon find Project Splinter is gone. Ramse can drive? Cole is a jerk and is shamed and scandalised. Ramse rants about re-enacting 'Terminator’.‘ Cole won’t listen and tantrums and will let 7 billion die so Cassie can live. His contented memories of the bint are more important than Ramse and so he kills Ramse and berates him for not trusting him,
Cole chose that selfish bitch over his BFF. Cole’s cruel ideology is his imperative. Cole shoves Jennifer aside and menaces Olivia. Where were her guards when he did that? Cassie and Cole fawn over each other. I want to vomit. I did not like this ep at all.
“Please stop talking like a super villain.”
“This can’t be how it ends.”
“There is nothing down there that you want to see.”
“That wasn’t there before.”
“You don’t get to say that to me!”
“You always let me down.”
Zelijo Ivanek guest stars. There are no wacky shenanigans as Olivia rants. They are doing comedy as Ramse lies rotting in a wood. Jennifer plans a heist in 1989 and hideous 80s fashion is worn. Cassie and Cole plan to destroy a map that could help find the Witness as they’re selfish. Cher blares on the soundtrack. This was stagnant.
There is no foresight principle by Cassie and Cole who have parasitic accessorial liability and no responsibility or accountability. Cole and Cassie are raving lunatics adversarial to sense. They are incapable of anticipating consequences. The heist goes awry. It doesn’t behove Cassie and Cole to find their appalling situation brutally crushing. Olivia wears 80s earrings and talks down a car phone.
Deacon mocks Cole killing Ramse. No one misses Ramse. Cole yelled at Ramse for wanting to save his son and now he’s doing the same thing. This ep is utterly empty. There is yelling. Cassie impels herself into situations. There is no mysterious purpose. Cole points out the cultural abyss between him and Cassie. Cole is vile.
Hannah bores. Jones is not self-actualised and is value neutral. There is no philosophical enlightenment. People talk and talk. Jones is a loon. Everything is unanticipated. There are no moral reasons for anything. Cole has finally and irreversibly destroyed all interest in this show. Cole has dangerous logic and Jones’ plans are fraught with difficulty and have caused widespread havoc. Jennifer’s dad mumbles down huge 80s phones. Jennifer learns who parented the Witness and lies about it.
“Remarkably cogent plan.”
“Can’t you be normal for once?”
“Brown bottle flu.”
Christopher Lloyd of ‘Suburban Commando’ and ‘Back To The Future’ guest stars as an acolyte of the Witness who is now a horrible child. This ep is more conclusive proof that this show is past the point of futility. Is Olivia still locked up? Yes. The Army assembles. People spew babble that isn’t factually sustained. The Witness is a Primary. Cassie wears a very noticeable veil. There is an unexpected act at the revivalist tent meeting by the horrible kid Witness. Where does Jennifer get all her charcoal and paper in the ruined 2046? Deacon and Olivia chat. Cole and Cassie closed Ramse out of their relationship and seem fine with the consequences.
“Mask of loss.”
“I have purpose!”
“We are what we were made to be.”
