Did You Know?


The assessment of Tyrell Welleck (Martin Wallström) used by Wallace Shawn's character is typical of those used by mind control groups, notably Scientology in its "auditing" sessions, which involve lengthy periods of asking the same question repeatedly until the sought-after response is received.

Frank Cody: I mean, the guy's a buffoon. He's completely divorced from reality. How would you even control him?

49 minutes of revelations in a Tyrell-centric, all-flashback episode.
25 October 2017 | by TouchTheGarlicProductionSee all my reviews

At first, the season 1 finale left me feeling confused, befuddled, and a little cheated with its crypticness. Over the months that followed, I grew to love it as a piece of art, but still went into season 2 with expectations of answers. And of course, season 2 just heaped on more questions. Now, in season 3, we finally get to see the night of the hack and Tyrell's subsequent disappearance. This is the episode I wanted so badly out of season 2 and never got. Ironically enough, now that I've finally seen it, I'm realizing that season 2 pretty much told us everything we needed to know in answer to those questions, and that a lot of the information in this episode was ultimately redundant. However, it's still incredibly satisfying to be filling in the gaps. Plus, the episode had two major twists and a cameo from a masterclass actor I had thought was retired.

The episode focused primarily on Tyrell and his hideout in season 2. I'm glad we got to spend an entire episode developing his character because I didn't quite get him in season 1 and he spent most of season 2 shrouded in mystery, so I never really got the chance to invest in or understand him. But now, thanks to this episode (especially the mid-episode interrogation scene featuring a cameo from a world-class actor who I could have sworn was retired) I feel like I really have a grasp on his motivation. Irving also got quite a bit of development in this episode, not to mention a lot of good quips.

While the episode was mostly a matter of filling in the gaps in season 2, it did also contain two major plot twists, both involving the surprise reveal of the loyalties of previously introduced characters. I predicted one of them back in season 2, but the other caught me completely by surprise (though it makes a lot of sense). I'll leave it up to you to decide which one I predicted.

All in all, despite not advancing the present day story-line one iota, this was a tremendously satisfying episode that did not suffer at all from the long buildup to it.
