Ramse can be irritating, sure, but at least this mission turned out to be worthwhile.
I am sure I'm not the only Monkeys' fan waiting patiently to learn Olivia's origin story. Man, did 12 Monkeys Season 2 Episode 10 deliver a fascinating timey-wimey tale for the Tall Man's little sister. It was simultaneously heartbreaking and unpredictable.
With the coordinates to Titan ripped from the map, will Ramse go after the Witness alone? He better not kill anyone breaking out of the facility.
It was clear this was going to be another fast-paced installment. We learned on 12 Monkeys Season 2 Episode 9 that a German doctor "supposedly" knew the whereabouts of the Witness.
Well, this episode hit the ground running in Berlin 2016. That said, in true Monkeys fashion, Olivia was the last person I expected to see there. What was her connection to the mysterious doctor and that lab? We got the Tall Man's story, so »

When cinema-goers queued up to see Aliens in 1986, seven years had already passed since its predecessor, Alien. While a follow-up to the 79 hit had been discussed at Fox for years, it took James Cameron to finally bring it to fruition - and it’s fair to say that he created something far more than a typical sequel of the era.
Where franchises like Halloween, Friday The 13th and A Nightmare On Elm Street largely followed the template established by the first film, Cameron attempted something vastly more ambitious: a continuation and expansion of Ridley Scott’s classic, a second chapter in its resourceful heroine Ripley’s story - one where she’s transformed from traumatised survivor to avenging warrior.
