In 1953, Cole and Railly reunite with Agent Gale at the birth of the Army of the 12 Monkeys.
Not as great as the first five episodes, but nevertheless I liked this. I expected a bigger reaction from Cassie and Cole upon seeing The Witness aka their son, so I was surprised at how muted their reactions were. I guess it only makes sense since he has been raised to kill everyone so they’re not exactly going to jump up and down with joy, heh. Cole willing to kill their son to save the world while Cassie says she can’t is to be expected. Cole seems outraged that someone related to him will have grown up to kill off all humans and now his purpose to kill The Witness no matter what. This is going to be such a sticky point for his relationship with Cassie – although it shouldn’t.
Poor Jennifer. I felt for her being scared and for being haunted by that dead woman. Stuff of nightmares, I swear. Can’t wait for everyone to figure out what her drawings mean. Her bringing Teddy the Turtle from whenever to 2046 is endearing. Never change, Jennifer.
Deacon feeling left out because he doesn’t appear on the map and he’s in any of Jennifer’s drawings…what does this mean? I hope he doesn’t get hurt by all this and just accepts it for what it is. Some people serve a higher purpose and just because he’s not on the map doesn’t mean shit. He is playing a big part in helping the team and their cause. Talking to Olivia was the worst thing he could have done. Step away, Deacon!
So great to see Gale, the FBI agent. I’ve always liked him and was so bummed when he was killed last season in 1961. He’s a great ally for Cole and Cassie and even though Cassie told him when he’ll die, you just know he’ll still help them and will sacrifice himself so they could succeed in their mission. Loved his pun when he saw Cole and Cassie again: “I guess Santa brought me coal for Christmas after all.”
