This is the episode that explains it all and makes us like Christopher Chance a little more. On "Christopher Chance", we learn what turned this assassin into the man he is today. He did it all for a lady he hardly knew, one that managed to steal his heart within a 48 hour period.
The episode even ends in a cliff hanger, with a missing Winston. Will Chance be able to save his friend and business partner? We surely hope so!
Let’s begin with the beautiful Katherine, an innocent woman that Chance was hired to kill. Poor thing stumbles on a dying man, and because he mumbles a few meaningless words to her, makes her the target of a hit man. Thankfully they sent in Chance, who decides to leave his criminal past behind and become a man of value. A man that eventually will risk his life to save others.
Katherine was the significant catalyst that facilitated Chance’s change. Too bad she wasn’t able to survive, and was blown to pieces by the evil Baptiste. We couldn’t see her actually on the boat before it exploded, and we are thinking that maybe she might not have been on it. What an excellent twist that would turn out to be! Do you think Katherine might still be alive today, hiding out? Maybe she’ll show up in the future, who knows!
We also learned that Guerrero and Chance have a long history. They were both employed by Chance’s evil boss. Good to see that Guerrero also decided to dedicate his life to saving others. We hope to learn more about what caused his change of heart as well.
At first we were skeptics of Human Target, but now we can honestly say we are becoming fans. It took us the entire first season to make connections with the characters, but alas true connections were made. This finale left us surprised and looking forward to the next season.
Until then, here are a few of our favorite Human Target quotes:
Winston: Man, you see me here drinking at 2:30 in the afternoon; you really want to antagonize me about my name? What the hell's the matter with you, you got a death wish or something?
Chance: Not that I'm aware of. | permalink
Winston: Yeah, I've got a name that sounds like a girl's name. I also carry a 45, I got a history of disciplinary problems, and this aint my first drink today. So, you got another comment?
Chance: You can call me Connie. | permalink
Katherine: I guess my next question is why do you want to be alone in a room with me?
Chance: To kill you. | permalink
