The absurd but necessary plot twist
23 May 2020 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Let's be brutally honest, the last 2-3 episodes of "Blood Drive" were really boring and extremely bleak in comparison to the first handful of installments. Ever since Grace was forced to give up the search for his missing sister, Julian Slink turned into a marionette of the Heart board of directors, and Arthur got too preoccupied with moral dilemmas and Stepford-hallucinations, the supposedly blood-soaked dystopian Sci-Fi series became rather melodramatic and whiny. The show desperately needed to shift back into higher gear, literally, and with "Rise of the Primo" it looks as if at least some of the scripters realized it, too. The episode supposedly covers the final racing day, and Slink invited lunatics from all corners of the planet for a fight until death. But since a couple of extremely violent mass murders aren't enough to bring "Blood Drive" back to its original dementia level, the plot foresees an utterly insane, far-fetched and completely implausible story twist. But even though insane, far-fetched and implausible, the twist somehow works and crazily makes sense in the overall concept of this series. So, there, I'm slightly optimistic again for the remaining two episodes.

By the way, Alex McGregor is stunning hot as Karma!
