The End
Cole and Cassie’s foul concept is to only care for each other. There are weird accents, flaming torches and yelling about a weapon. A weird device shows up. Nobody is firm and resolute. Jones is dying and then she isn’t. Cassie forgets she is a doctor. God I hate Cassie. Cole and Cassie are disgustingly selfish human being. They self-consciously doom everyone.

Deacon yells. Why are Cole and Cassie being appeased? This show has lost its lustre. I do not know the point of this ep. It is just confusing. Cassie and Cole fiercely oppose sense. What about stopping the plague? What about the plague mutating? Why do people continue to offer their support to Cole and Cassie? They caused all this! The Witness plans the collapse of civilisation and a campaign of calumny. Or something.

Where do they get their endless ammo? The characters are not the easiest to care for. They are awkward and difficult. Someone has a fancy bow and arrow. Cole overacts. The Witness has sinister intentions. There is a lack of common sense. Deacon is left behind. No one really cares. Cole and Cassie abandoned him without a thought cos they are selfish jerks. What’ll become of Deacon?

One is extremely discouraged about season 4 by this godawful ep. Cole mentions Ramse. The narrative shifts. Cole and Cassie have unusual reverence for each other and their crapulence. Their distorted intimacy ruins others and this show. The time machine is busted. They’ve no power. And power has become very important. Cassie and Cole have vociferous support for each other’s crap. Cole mentions Spearhead.

James Cole has an undeserved mystical reputation. Where is Jennifer? Cassie has never shown any sign she had a baby - no milk, no split vagina, no complications, nothing. Cassie has no conscientiousness. God I hate her and Cole. In 2018, Jennifer is in Prague doing drawings and robbing as the plague rages. Why in Prague - is a museum guide in English? Cole sees himself. They’re in 2043 or something.

Best Lines:
“Where would we go?”

“As long as we get.”

“Far and fast.”

“Can’t or won’t?”

“Where else would prey go?”

“Slaughtered Spearhead for.”

“Abort catchphrase!”

“Just come out already!”

The events of 1x01 play out again. Cassie is a selfish bint who only cares about herself. Kirk Acevedo shows up, he went from this show to ‘Arrow’. Poor guy. Cassie and co plan to attack the season 1 versions of themselves. When did they stop trying to prevent the plague and start obsessing over revenge on The Witness? What became of Marcus? Cassie has open hostility and personal grievances.

Where did the birds come from? Cassie kills birds. Jones blathers to herself. There is no moral guide. Cassie takes an emotional approach to The Witness. She has no anger competence. Cassie pivots around anger. Cassie and Cole got her fiancée and Ramse killed for their love. It wasn’t cruel necessity. Where is the Army Of The 12 Monkeys?

Ramse was smart. Where does Jones get cigarettes? This was no dynamic. Cole comes face to face with the friend he murdered - all for Cassie’s vagenda. Ramse mumbles. Cole doesn’t retrospectively condemn himself for murdering Ramse. An Interpol guy lurks. What happened to Jennifer? This bored.

Best Lines:
“Ass eating snake.”

“Come with me.”
“Not this time.”

“In a time of plague.”

“We are echoes here.”

45 RPM
In 2046 - Olivia is a crappy Witness. In the past, 1971, Cassie somehow has got hold of a sniper rifle to kill the young Olivia. Deacon’s not dead. Where did future Cole come from to save Jennifer? In 1971 Olivia murdered her friend. Olivia was pregnant. Who was the father? Olivia was branded by her mother. Olivia has self-doubt. What did she Witness? Cole waves a gun like the tool he is. Now we’ve got seers. Cole is shown a puzzle made long ago. Olivia always was a psycho. Who is Interpol guy? Deacon’s gone bad. What became of Olivia’s baby? This makes no sense.

Best Lines:
“It has not come.”

“Which Cole are you?”

“The chronology doesn’t make sense.”

“An unbreakable cycle.”

“The end of the great cycle.”

“The world started dying.”

Render Unto Caesar
People want Morrigan dead. Hercules opposes this. Caesar (Karl Urban overacting badly) shows up to conquer Eire. How does Hercules know about SPQR? Hercules is told to reform Morrigan, who is a thankless shrieking harpy. Caesar does not show how dangerous and attractive evil can be.

The fighting Irish need Hercules to lead them. Caesar is rotting from the soul outward. Morrigan goes through withdrawal from drinking god blood. A god with antlers on his head prances. Morrigan has a sinister alliance with antler god. There are bad VFX and bad accents. Hercules invents anti-ship warfare. Romans throw themselves off their ships. Caesar waves a plastic sword and rubs his nipples in joy. Morrigan sings, badly.

Morrigan needs to be convinced of her wrongheadness for the sake of her soul or something. Armagh is mentioned. Hercules can’t enforce real change in Morrigan via his monotoning. Morrigan has a child with antler god - wouldn’t that child be more than a demi-god? Caesar’s ambition to conquer Eire is deferred. Caesar never forgets a slight but he never bothered Hercules again. He also had his scribe tossed off the boat to ensure nobody would ever know about his failure in Eire. The national mood of Eire sees Hercules given new clothes. This was not even vaguely traumatic or pithy. Morrigan has no personal worth. This was really bad.

Best Lines:
“Is that supposed to past as insight?”

“Let you keep your teeth.”

“I am not impressed.”
“You will be.”

“You have no shame!”

“No enemy they cannot conquer.”

The Prisoner’s Dilemma
Linc always was the weak, worthless and stupid non-brother Michael was lumbered with. Michael is assailed by problems. This does not get intense to an intense degree. Michael is endlessly calm. Isis attacks, cue countrywide panic. Michael was in solitary for 4 years.
The Isis leader is in the important cell. The prison guards have a panicked response to Isis. Michael is intellectually secure. Rick Yune lurks. T-Bag and Sara spy on Kellerman and babble about Poseidon. Does Linc recall Veronica? People have expectations of Michael that he can’t deliver on. Luckily he’s self-reliant. Some people’s whole worldview is conspiratorial. Kellerman has a child?  Viewers know what they like and expect with this show.

Kellerman’s evil is unacknowledged. Accepted ideas are wrong. This season has had varying degrees of success. How many endless retellings of the same plot can TPTB pull off? The prisoners plan to use the Isis leaders as a bargaining chip. A poor guy is used as a battering ram. A decent guy dies. There is babble about a rogue CIA agent. Kellerman dies, it took long enough. Those 2 idiot assassins show up. You’d think Kellerman would have had bulletproof glass in his windows.

People are the worst people in the world. There is an unfathomable vastness of trouble. Michael hops the prison wall. Linc’s t-shirt is very white. How did T-Bag get out of Kellerman’s house? Bad things happen. Linc takes on real bad Arabs. T-Bag sees that Jacob is a baddie. Isis declares war on Michael and co. This was okay.

Best Lines:
“You bug eyed freak!”

“A prison out there as well.”

“I need to get in!”
“I need to get out!”

“Anyone comes at me dies!”

“We are in hell.”

“He knew it was worthless.”

“Kale is the rage? Kale!”

“Doesn’t sound very promising.”

“Killing for a lie.”


“Freaking Mexican soap opera out here.”

“What his word is worth.”

“Prison telly.”

“Behold the villain.”

Michael explains stuff and retcons the past. Wasn’t he dying? That part is brushed over. This was not madly entertaining. People are intractably stupid. Linc demands answers. This was not good. Michael was blackmailed into working for Poseidon and breaking people out of jail. There is death, a nutter and C-Note gets free. People gaze pensively into the middle distance. Who is Sara’s friend? Michael’s just not brilliant enough. Jacob lies. Poseidon lurks in the background. Sara’s dumb. There is talking and singing and social judgement and BOREDOM.

Best Lines:
“Damn right I resent you.”

“Pivot to the next contingency.”

It's the infamous Kirk v the Gorn ep. People talk about defensive screens. The Gorn destroy a colony. Kirk is angry. Another alien race meddles. A Gorn and Kirk fist fight to settle the score. This was BAD.
