SPOILERS FOR STATION ELEVEN E4
“Rosencrantz and Guildenstein Aren’t Dead”
So we went back to 20 years later and met up with the Travelling Symphony. We were here for most of the time with the exception of a couple of flashbacks to see some moments with Kirsten and Jeevan after they had left Frank’s place.
The Travelling Symphony were on the road, heading for their next show, and we get a sidetrack to a former member of the Symphony, the old director Gill.
The episode focused in on Alex and how she was starting to come under the influence of The Prophet. Alex gave us the first thrill of the episode as she went running downhill through a minefield to get to Gill. I was absolutely holding my breath as she took off.
With the dynamic of the group, Gill’s return made a huge effect on the group. Not only Alex but also with Lori Petty’s Sarah. We got some amazing music with Sarah on the keyboard.
Alex is clearly in a downward spiral and on a collision course with The Prophet. Then, when the children, who had been taken from Gill and his people, returned strapped with bombs… holy cow. I was anticipating someone blowing up all episode because of a mine, but it turned out to be from a bomb vest instead.
The graphic novel made its way back into the story here as well, making me wonder what connection that comic has to the overall storyline.
It is a very good episode and it continues to weave the mystery of what exactly is going on. It still gives me LOST vibes as well as The Walking Dead, especially with The Prophet filling the Governor or Negan role.
