This week’s episode of 12 Monkeys dealt with a lot of character development, mostly for the folks in 2043. There are two friends who have a complete opposite idea of how to save the world from the virus, a personal moment changes a person side and a twist that I would never saw coming to say the least.
Let’s start with the folks in 2043. Katrina knows that the virus has not been stopped, so she decides to bring Cole back. But as they tried to do that, the Core suddenly breaks down, not once but twice. The Core is now completely broken.
With the Core broken and need of a replacement, Katrina is going to need some help. There’s a friend named Foster, who has the same Core machine but instead of going back in time to stop the virus, he’s trying to find a cure for it. Foster runs a project called Spearhead, that’s almost like the Splinter but there’s no time traveling at all. Where’s the fun in that, right?
These two butted heads and at times have the same purpose of stopping the virus, because they’ve lost a loved one that they care for so much – for Katrina, it was her daughter, and for Foster, his wife.
As the two talk, things don’t go well and Katrina goes back with papers from Foster to figure his study out, but not to mention that she might have to take things by force, so this friendly feud isn’t over just yet.
Meanwhile, Rasme can be a pain in the neck and acts like a big shot at times. But he and Whitley make a trip to meet with Foster until he sees an old girlfriend. As soon as they’ve talked, she gets to show him his son. Rasme soon meets and talks with him and it totally changes his personality now. I really find his story really developed in this episode, finally he has a soft side.
The other thing in this episode, the question that we all must be thinking after last week’s episode, is Cole dead or alive? He’s alive, and spent most of the episode underneath the building rubble that the airstrikes caused in last week’s episode.
As Cole is waiting to get rescued underneath the rubble in Chechnya, Cassandra seems to determine to find him, even if it takes some channels just to get over there. I’m getting thoughts that she might have some real feelings for Cole. Does anyone agree?
One of the most twisted endings so far, in my opinion, came when as Cassandra makes it up there in Chechnya, she sees the building rubble but when she enters we thought that she was seeing Cole being brought up. Nope! Cole jumped two years ahead to 2017, when Katrina was trying to bring him back and Cassandra thinks that Cole stopped the virus. Oh how wrong she is.
I enjoyed this week’s episode. It produced more background for certain characters, mostly for Katrina, Foster and Rasme. I think that this was more of their episode and that Cole and Cassandra had a smaller role. Over all, I give this episode a nine out of ten. Katrina and Foster’s private talk was simply one of the best scenes so far. As they were talking Foster tries to push her and when he mentions (probably) Katrina’s daughter’s name, she slaps him real good. What did you think of this week’s episode? Comment or tweet me your thoughts.
