Did You Know?


At the ad hoc FBI centre, there are shots of miscellaneous technical equipment and computer screens. As an FBI officer (wearing a jacket with FBI on the back) leans over the keyboard of a computer which ostensibly shows a control screen with a map of eastern America, they move the mouse which then causes the screen to display the playback controls of VLC, thus exposing the control screen to be nothing more than a video being played at full screen.

A Rip-Roaring Penultimate Episode
27 April 2018 | by Better_TVSee all my reviews

The season's two big plot threads come together in one thrilling hour of television: the API must work with the FBI to track down Kateb, who is now in America and getting ready to strike an unknown landmark; and Will and Katherine's lives are under threat after the failed assassination attempt made against Will's life in the previous ep.

Seriously Emmy-worthy stuff here from actor Arliss Howard, who continues to wow as the shrewd, mysterious, Kale Ingram. His position has never been more precarious as he balances his loyalty to API director Truxton Spanger (an equally fantastic Michael Cristofer) with his loyalty to Will Travers (James Badge Dale). He and the former share a particularly tense scene here, one charged with smoldering emotions and subtle power moves. It's great stuff.

Fantastic writing sees Will stressfully yet capably bounce between stopping Kateb's attack (with added frustrations courtesy of an uncooperative and obstinate FBI) and protecting his own well being from shadowy assailants.

We also get a few scenes with Kateb himself, which I found to have a whiff of Islamophobia about them - unfortunately I fear viewers will (or did) come away from this episode with a nasty impression of the faith. But ultimately the API is helping the NSA, CIA and similar agencies within the NatSec apparatus, so fundamentalist terrorists are going to be within their purview. And, as always with this show, it seems that events as they relate to Kateb might not be as they appear.

This episode has a downer of an ending on both the terrorist and conspiracy fronts. Can't wait to watch the final episode.
