I can't help feeling a bit disappointed with the progression of the story in this one. Sure, we got Nick's origin story and found out Moira is still alive but other than that there wasn't that much substance, just more world-building - which would've been interesting a few episodes back but not so much now that we're this close to the end of the season.
Nick's backstory. Pffff, who cares ? Worse character of the show and the actor's totally bland.
The scene with the commanders planning was a nice insight though.
Supriiiiiise. The religious men ruling class kept whores. How crazy is that ?
Moira's still alive. Not really surprising, but did not expect her there. Only interesting event of the episode.
As if this show wasn't far fetched enough, now you expect me to believe that Christian fundamentalists changed the whole power grid to solar?!?
Yo. Nick's storyline is very important to the development of the tale: it unveils the complex political organization and how the Eye works and how it has been formed. Yall don't just feel sympathy for him. But he's important.
Nick is the weak point of this show. It's bad enough that the commander - or anybody - doesn't notice his constant moody, sullen attitude and his never ending furtive glances at June, but the actor is also letting the show down.
That meeting has been The best of the episode. But a very poor one so close to season finale.
Nothing make sense in this show ಠ~ಠIt was a good decision to name it as a "Tale", 'couse I can't find no lines in this story.
At least when you watch Legion they have dance numbers... and super powers...Sooo, yeah...
I enjoyed Luke’s flashbacks in the previous episode, but Nick’s flashbacks in this episode just bored me. I don’t care about him or his backstory.
I didn't understood the boat scene. Luke and the blonde girl were the only ones who survived?
