Starz wrapped the critically acclaimed first season of spy-fi drama Counterpart on Sunday, ending with a tense diplomatic standoff, a game-changing death and the two Howard Silks (J.K. Simmons) trapped in one another's foreign world.
Howard Alpha (from our world) is desperate to get back to his comatose wife Emily (Olivia Williams), but his only option is to beg for help from the mysterious leader of Project Indigo, Alexander Pope (Stephen Rea). Pope agrees to assist him, but only if Howard agrees to become his assassin on the other...

In the major Asian markets, Internet company Sohu has taken rights for China; satcaster Wowow will handle it in Japan; and KT has acquired the rights for South Korea.

Not only were we brought into the loop of Howard's Emily and her "accident," but the final reveal(s) was quite shocking, as well.
Did you suspect Emily might have been an agent, or did it come at you like a slap in the face?
My highest hope after learning all of this new information is that by the end of the season or sometime into Counterpart Season 2 Emily will be out of her coma and the foursome will be working together.
The only thing better than two J.K. Simmons is two J.K. Simmons and two Olivia Williams working together on one show. Oh, the talent!!
There were so many floating pieces that stuck out at me, and I'm afraid if I don't mention them up front, I'll neglect to do it down the line.
On Counterpart Season 1 Episode 2 she was willing to take orders to pull him in, and I have to wonder why she didn't question them.
She doesn't have the clearance of her husband, and it's hard not wonder why she wouldn't why a lower level ex-wife would be given the rendition. It was telling of their relationship, though. If she's willing to carry out a rendition order on her husband, things are not well between them.
Seeing how handily an unarmed Other Howard destroyed the two men Emily asked him to take in OHoward, his skills are no longer in doubt.
Just how bad things are between Emily and OHoward is up for debate when it's revealed the rendition call Emily received was a false one. Olivia Williams is playing Emily with just enough doubt in herself we can't be sure what she's thinking,
But “Counterpart” is also a work of speculative fiction, and it uses its graceful and well-modulated sci-fi elements to ask thoughtful questions about missed opportunities, identity, and what happens when people get unexpected chances to remake their lives.
And if that weren’t enough, “Counterpart” is also a handsome, character-driven serial for adults. It avoids many of the traps of the Prestige Drama category: It’s brisk, sardonic, and has moments of bittersweet sadness, but it’s not enamored of predictable grimness or uninspired transgression. And whatever genre you gravitate to, “Counterpart” is made immensely enjoyable by excellent performances from J.K. Simmons and Olivia Williams, among others.

Meet Howard Silk. Howard (Simmons) is a devotee: He’s been working for the same company in the same job in the same clothes, location, and conditions for 30 years. He’s been married to the same woman, Emily (Olivia Williams), for most of that time, faithfully at her side through thick and thin.
