The two groups are on different coasts. With the collapse of society you've got to assume traveling cross country would be difficult. I imagine Travis' group will become more mobile, taking the show out of the U.S. altogether. Why would they want to head East?
Man, they went from zero to apocalypse in an hour. Part of the fun of this new series was watching the collapse of society. We have plenty of walkers on the main show, I was hoping we would get more background on the epidemic. Guess that makes for dull television, since fans were already getting antsy expecting more zombies. You're right Sean, the character of Strand is super interesting. Staying mobile on the ocean is a great idea. However, he'll need to refuel and dock for food eventually. I got the sense if anyone crosses over to Walking Dead, it's going to be Strand. A few seasons in though. I enjoyed the finale, and though we didn't get a chance to know Liza well, her death was more moving than a character on The Strain who has been there since the pilot. The writers did a great job with this first batch of episodes.
Yep, I caught that on my second viewing. Thanks ;)
I'm judging the Claire and Noma situation by their actions. Noma had been flip-flopping since the start of the extinction war. Those are the types of individuals (angel or human ha) that one can never truly trust. Her relationship with Alex from the start was based on a lie. On the other hand, Claire was always pushing to help her people and made the ultimate sacrifice. I realize folks did not like the Claire character as much as Noma, even I wasn't thrilled by the civil war arc. That said, you always kind of hope our hero ends up with the best person. The person deserving of his heart. No matter how you slice it or dice it, that person is not Noma. I really wanted Alex and Claire to find their way back to each other. If I have one complaint, it's that the writers evolved her out of the story :( By the way, shows that live on the bubble should always have a beginning, middle and end. It's not fair to the audience to leave us hanging. Like you said, with the suits it's not about story but numbers. Syfy has too many new shows in the pipeline and the networks want quick results. Still a great season overall.
I've got to disagree about Noma, San. She proved herself a traitor on several occasions. Gabriel even warned Michael "how long before she betrays you?" She may have fallen for Alex, but she wanted her wings back more. That's the choice she made. Claire, on the other hand, put herself in harms way time and again for her people. She even bombed Gabriel's aerie, sacrificing Alex, to save mankind. I think there was plenty of story left to tell and feel she didn't get a fair shake. Claire died a hero, Noma is just selfish.
I hoped it was shelved haha... but it's back on. We'll see if it ever makes it as a series, but we might see a backdoor pilot at some point.
That's right! You are absolutely correct. I guess Joey's photograph threw me off. Catching everything the first time around is always tough. I need to rewatch the episode. Thanks for clearing that up.
The season has been one long ass con, which is what we feared early on. Half of book 2 wasn't nearly interesting enough for 13 hours of television. That said, I bet the second half (which I never read) has the real meat and potatoes. Seems like we had to suffer through this season for the payoff next year. That's just not a cool strategy and will cost them viewers. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D returns tonight. No screeners for me, so I'll be watching live and trying to get my review up as quickly as possible. Thanks so much for all your comments this season Joe! I look forward to discussing S.H.I.E.L.D with ya as well ;)
You might be right about the rating. I was just so happy to see Sean Astin, I got carried away haha
Yeah my Gigi theory is lame, but since most of the cast is in their early 20's I figured she has to be at least 10 years older. You know what I mean?
