We’re less than a month out from the season 2 return of 12 Monkeys and so much has happened. If you’re worried that some plot details may have gone fuzzy in your head during the season break, then Syfy has a remedy for you. In preparation for the time-hopping madness to come, the network has put together a season 1 recap video that incredibly manages to present all the major plot points in only 6 minutes.
With such a short time to cover an entire season, don’t expect every nuance and detail to get mentioned, but you’ll be pretty surprised at how much they’ve packed into this little video. Even all the jumping around in time makes a lot of sense in this speedy summary. Somehow, having so much presented in such a succinct manner actually makes a lot of the plotlines even clearer. It also reminds you just how frakking crazy 12 Monkeys’ tangled timelines really are, and it’s even more impressive that they all seem to make sense.
I didn’t think I’d forgotten how much I loved 12 Monkeys during the break, but watching this and some of the season 2 promos reminded me that I really do adore the hell out of this show. It’ll be good to get back to time travel, mysterious monkeys, and all the insanity usually associated with the end of the world.
All we have to do is sit tight until Monday, April 18 at 9/8c then the fun begins … again.
