The Patient: Pastitsio - Episode 5 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Episode five proves more my theory that Sam kills people because he wants attention and is a little bitch but then when he get the attention from others don’t know what to do or react, him killing people is a reaction to his impotency to confront his father now as an adult, when he was a kid he couldn’t but now that he has enough age to do it his father is not around anymore so he just take on other people who bother him in some way turning him into a bully, I know this is not his fault but he also doesn’t do that much to take responsibility and act as a child, may be that trauma never let him grow up and inside he still feels like that child that was abused by his father but now inside the body of a grown man. Alan was making some progress with Sam since he got him to do a few things to get distracted but fall into what I think is a mistake, he initially got Sam to stay away from Elias, his victim, to distract his mind from that impulse to kill Elias but then ask Sam to bring Elias so they can have a session? that doesn’t make any sense to me, everything is so soon for it to work as Alan was expecting.

On this episode we also see Cadence, Sam’s mom, for the first time getting control of the situation but at the same time its just so lame how she would think a simple hit on the risk would stop a serial killer, she also needs therapy, both been in jail or some kind of institution away from society until they get better, but this is not 100% her fault neither as she is/could also be mentally and emotional affected by everything that happen with Sam’s father, this family is an entire mess, keep in consideration that we have no information or feedback from what exactly and why Sam’s father abuse him, I give it the benefit of the doubt since Sam and Cadence are not mentally well, you cant believe everything people say.

Sam goes visit his ex wife Mary, she seems nice and pretty, welcome him and invite him insight to talk but she look scared when Sam told her he was taking therapy, may be she thought “finally” or probably he had taken therapy in the past and didnt work, my point is that she doesnt seem too sure to be next to him but still got him inside and try to talk to Sam, he look nervous and the total opposite of what he told Alan he was with Mary, he came up with any topic and stay quiet most of the time, it was Mary who kept trying to be open to him, there were a few moments I thought we was going to openly tell her why he is in therapy and even that he has a guy kidnap, something crazy but it didnt happen, that would turn up this episode so much. I think Sam lie to Alan about Mary or may be things have change so much for him that he is not the same around her.

Source

Back at Sam’s home where Elias and Alan remain prisoners, Elias is trying to get Alan to team up with him and knock out Sam, he offer Alan to bring him into the therapy session and then he would throw himself at Sam so Alan can beat him but the answer to that is obvious and I already know it, Alan wont do it, he wont risk it because he knows Sam is stronger, if something goes bad its Elias fault since he is the one that came up with the idea but he feels there is no hope for him.

Alan and Elias had this moment where he ask Elias to bring a message to his family in case he dies but I think that was just give some hope to Elias saying he is the one that is going to escape the situation alive.

Source

After Sam gets back from Mary’s place he start talking with Alan and tells him how it didn’t work, talking to Mary didn’t make him think different about Elias but I know that was not Alan point, he wanted to show Sam how he can stay away from Elias and eventually forget about him for some time but Sam wants results for yesterday like its as simple as taking a pill. Sam got angry and was going to kill Elias but Sam calls Cadence and all it took was two claps and a “Get back here” for Sam to stop, WTF why no body gave Alan the Sam manual where it says the instructions, Sam definitely still has this child complex and proof is that his mom still can send him to his room and ground him.

This episode is also proof that been on the edge every five minutes that Sam is going to kill Elias is what keeps this exciting but at some point its getting old so the writer needs to make a decision quick to keep viewers interested and its a very obvious one.

Source

After his mother told him to go to sleep and send him to his room, after some time Sam comes back down to talk with Alan, he had this object on his hand that I thought it was a key, may be a key to free Alan but it look like he didn’t notice because if he did he would be interested and ask Sam to free him up, instead he start explaining Sam none of this is his fault and its a reaction to all those bad memories with his father and how he is taking it with the rest of the world, how none of this people are trying to harm him but he feels this way as an excuse to explode angry at them when he is really angry at his father.

I don’t know if Alan for real try to make Sam understand this by himself and brought Elias into the session or he was going with Elia’s plan to take down Sam.

Source

Alan is suppose to be a well known therapist with lots of experience but I think the situation and pressure is making him take wrong decisions, Sam told him that bringing Elias to the session wouldn’t work, it only make things worst for him, you have a dog barking at you none stop every time you get close to the gate and he just got his chain loose what do you expect if you get inside the yard. Sam makes Alan bring Elias in and all it took was Elias to start crying and stuttering because he couldn’t manage the pressure of been blind by duct tape in front of a guy who wants to kill him, Sam jumps Elias and choke him to death, that’s how we got to the cover picture of this post.

The Patient: Pastitsio - Episode 5 - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

After this episode I think Sam needs guidance but with an iron fist, he needs someone who can control him and tell him what to do, he also needs to stay away probably lock down in a facility where he can rehabilitate and get over this trauma, keep getting therapy with his mother too but it would depend if they both want it because both of the are acting very irresponsible even his mother knowing his son is a murder, as for Alan he is not handling well the pressure even if he appears to be but the truth is that he is starting to take desperate decisions and that’s why Elias is dead but cant blame him, going through all that he cant stop thinking about his family and the possibility that he wont see them again, most of the episodes are worth watching packed with intensity, stress, keeping me thinking is he going to kill him? is it now? is Alan next? but now we get to the point that Sam finally killed someone and in front of Alan so will this become a regular thing for them?

The Patient: Company – Episode 4 – RECAP

The Patient - Company - Episode 4 RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

I think Alan is starting to make some progress with Sam, on this episode Alan tries his best to keep Sam distant from his victim, I think I mention this on the previous episode, to overcome this kind of impulse you need to physically stay away from it, confront it doesn’t work for everyone at first, some times confront it make it worst since not everybody works the same and the subject may lack the strength to prevent himself to fall into the same steps, for Sam staying away from the victim, staying busy works the best. Alan is starting to test the waters of trust with Sam to the point where he tells Sam what to do and then flinch but the second time comes with more authority when he tells Sam to go to work and he notice how Sam took his direction, for Sam to get better he needs to obey Alan instructions since he is the expert and Alan reminds him of that “you brought me in because I’m the expert, trust me” that was Alan words when Sam was getting very very close to loose it. There are times when I see the episode from another perspective and think Sam is a bitch, needy mf who probably like to bully others, he says that he wants to punish them for how they do things like the guy he has right now he bend a few rules so he needs to be punish but Sam probably either attack him from the back or the guy cant defend himself so he is this kind of avenger on his head but he is just a abusive guy who makes an excuse that his father beat him up when he was a kid and now has this compulsive disorder to kill people who are out of line on this world but at the same time he just keep bitching about it and the way he walks or how he stop for a min when Alan ask him to go to work, open his mouth and stop like “OMG OMG I CANT OMG I CANT”, different than other three episodes I’m starting not to like the way Domhnall is developing the Sam character at least for now.

Another thought about Alan, he is really starting to struggle with how Sam at times could be some calm, smile and openly talk about other things like music but then be so violent and abusive, how he brought Elias Petraki his victim to the point it disturb him and cant rest, I could think his Sam’s mother might have to do with it too because how could you live with a serial killer even though its your son without stopping him or at least get someone to help him but not like they have Alan chain to the floor.

Time locked up and chain to the floor plus Sam behavior where some times eh can be gentle, funny, talk about community, love, have fun, all those things that contradict what he is currently doing, systematically killing people, planing how to do it without remorse, all that is taking the best part of Alan to the point he cant sleep he cant rest well and who can when you are kidnap, force to provide therapy to a guy that is only bitching about how he cant stop killing people and how he is the judge of those out of line in life who are bending rules or not doing things as he see fit.

Source

Inside Sam twisted mindset he must be very tough to kill a guy who only took advantage of the system without really making any harm to him, that’s not an excuse to kidnap someone and wanting to kill him besides they guy is tight up blind folded so how is he going to kill him, at such disadvantage I don’t see how that goes hand to hand with though man Sam. Alan still finds the patience and time to focus on the things that matter and tries to control Alan, he is making progress by keeping him away from his victim, at least this time as describe by Sam, he did stop before killing his victim and that’s why he brought it home although this is the clear scenario of someone who is only looking for attention, a man who only seeks blood would not act like this although he is looking for help that’s a positive sign, we might argue that’s how and unbalance person acts and why he is mentally sick.

Source

Alan convince Sam to go to work he try to give him an order and felt scared of how Sam would react, he at first flinch but then repeat himself when he notice it did work. Sam goes to work kicking and bitching how he cant do it, Alan is now talking with Elias, Sam’s victim, they restaurant manager that he kidnap, they talking about whats going to happen, the guy is shitting bricks and crying, then this is another twisted character that needs therapy or be in jail, Sam’s mother comes down probably heard them talking but she comes down with a metal bar, looks like fire place poker if that’s the name, what are her intentions to wack them? shut them off? defend herself? after all they just talking no direct harm to her, could we see her attack Alan in the future? She keeps talking about how Sam feels sorry, how he wants to stop but that’s not of Alan interest, he keeps sucking information out of her trying to understand why Sam feels and acts this way to guide him or even “cure” him and may be get out of this situation alive.

Source

Something that I like about this mini series is the format, this are very short episodes but for it to work it has to be intense when the main characters are on the same room, that is Sam and Alan, every time Sam shows up its either Alan wanting to kill him or Sam wanting to kill Elias, after a few sentences some one has to think or talk about murder and be very close to it and then stop, at some point this is going to change, from pictures and the trailer I know Sam beat up Alan once but I don’t want to spoil it, this is why this mini series is good although as you can tell on this episode I had enough of Sam complains.

Sam comes back from work and he looks tired, Alan had this call with him a the moment he wanted to come back home and killed Elias but Alan manage to keep him at work that probably took some effort from Sam, like controlling himself is taking a lot of his energy but at least he keeps coming back to talk to Alan so all this effort of Alan keeping him away from the victim is taking effect.

Source

Towards the end of the episode Alan confirm a few theory I had about Sam and its that he attack people from the back so the though guy story falls down here, Alan is now ordering Sam to do things to keep him away from Elias, just as he order him to go to work he now told him to go see his ex wife since that might keep his mind distracted away from Elias and at the end tells him to trust him because he is the expert.

Elias once told Alan “this guy must really trust you” since he mention his hands were free, Alan has been trying to get Sam to unchain him since day one and tell him to trust him this time but I don’t think he will ever do it, Sam knows the minute he unchain Alan that bird goes out the window.

The Patient - Company - Episode 4 RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

Alan therapy and guidance is starting to take effect on Sam, he is now ordering Sam to do things to keep his mind busy and away from Elias, the restaurant manager he kidnap and want to kill, not only Alan is telling Sam what to do to avoid killing Elias but also tells him to TRUST HIM!! this is going to be a key factor so he can make his attempt to escape, to be honest I don’t think he will be able to, I haven’t finish the end of this mini series at the moment I write this post but I think the odds are not in Alan favor, he is older, its two against one, Sam and his mother, plus he is chained to the floor, I don’t see how he can escape alive alone, probably if he helps Elias they can join forces to get out but someone is going to die at the end, also I don’t see this as a gore series so I don’t think Sam is going to be doing the killing because if he does it has to be very very violent although a Alan character would be tone down and more suited to the mood of the series.

Fatal Attraction: Beautiful Mosaics - Season 1 Episode 4 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

There are moments in life where we have everything to be happy, nothing else matter, everything fits, nothing else is need but there is always a situation that makes you feel the total opposite for a moment that can make you change your mind and feel the total opposite like you still don’t have what you need to be happy. Most people when they finally make it with time then forget how it was before they make it.

Dan Gallagher had everything he needed to be happy, very often we confuse what we need with what we want, he had a good job, great carer, people respect him at his job, had a great family, lovely wife even a good dog with a very nice house but it was just that moment when he didn’t get what he wanted, named judged! that tip him over, blind folded and forget what he had, making one of his worst mistakes, having an affair but unlucky him with the wrong person, Alexa Forrest.

The series keep unfolding and now I don’t think it will ever stop going back and forward between time lines because after all Dan and Mike will try to proof again that he is innocent of murder Alexa Forest, the first clues that might help him are starting to show up, you can tell when a man fear a women because of what she knows and what she can do with that information, that guard who Alex brought fritters and told her to stop, the therapist who lived across the hall who didn’t want to talk to her anymore, turns out he was dealing drugs and she knew, Alex was a menace, she needed therapy and men where her target by now I know she didn’t have limits not even Dan family.

This is exactly how lives works, for now reason Dan’s wife Beth started to find things around the house, one by one, first when Dan went with Alex to the beach she lost an earring and this was not planted literally fall and Dan’s dog eat it, Beth found it on her dogs pop one night talking to him she was like ok you eat it whose earring would it be, meh silly dog, next doing laundry she found a single sock that was not Dan’s he took it from a closet with lost cloth they had at work after he came back from spending the night with Alex, next that night he got a ton of calls and kept hanging up, putting it on silence when he NEVER does that, he is the kind of guy who is always on call. Beth knew Dan was having an affair even before she start to really investigate whats going on, that’s just life for everything that you are not suppose to be doing, that is wrong, that makes you ungrateful.

That time Alex went to Dan’s house she wasn’t there to threaten him, she was actually doing recon, it seems she wanted to hurt him, remember we talking about someone who hurt herself in front of others but making sure they don’t notice, Alex is not good with rejection and Dan was trying to stay away from her as much as he could after he ended their affair, bad part for him is that he never explicitly told her it was just an affair and she thought it was something more serious. On episode four there is an incident where Beth’s mom stayed at home after she and his dad went shopping, she was suppose to keep the dog in and receive Ellen from school but when Beth got back found her face down drowning on the pool, Dan review the scene and how things probably happen, he thinks it was Alex, I also think its very likely, expect anything from Alex, from now on everything goes for her.

This was telegraphed from miles away probably but its worth to mention that the first person Dan told he had an affair with Alex was Mike after they try to look up for the CCTV footage when she trow acid to his car but he was parked in a place that the camera didn’t cover, Dan was concern of what she could do and wanted to put a stop to all this but had no proof and she kept calling him so Mike advice him to let her be, stay away and do not respond, confront Alex would make things worst.

Now that Dan is out he needs to get a job, get back into society and prove he is worth of staying out of prison, he is on paroled, he has been looking for any firm that could accept him with his record but no one would take him, those who could make fun of him and get some payback did, Dan was not every ones friend and was very successful so he had made a few enemies back in the day but at least he had very few friends, Jorge an old colleague he helped back in the day got his back and welcome him immediately after he step foot on the law firm he was working at. Dan is starting to organize his life again because besides proving he is innocent he wants to get back to his daughter Ellen who for now play a secondary role far in the distance on this story but I’m sure that will change latter on.

Dan is going to have a very hard time trying to control himself when he face what potentially proofs he was innocent and was not the only one been harassed by Alex, he is going back to old co workers in this case Conchita, like her some talk to him out of respect for who he was, his reputation and his word for most means nothing because he admit to be guilty, Conchita told him about the guard (bailiff), Gabriel Ibarra from courtroom M71, he also had an affair with Alex but end it although she though different and made a unofficial complain about Alex harassing him and Conchita knew but kept it for herself, she have this train of thought that if Dan knew he would use it to make Alex look guilty and him get of the hook so Conchita never believe Dan didn’t killed her, I’m hungry to know how things went down during court for everyone to think Dan did it, seems a lot of people believe it before he admit it and turn their backs on him.

Fatal Attraction: Beautiful Mosaics - Season 1 Episode 4 - RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

I like how the story is getting into a second phase, its only four episodes but we already went from having an affair, finish it, Alex start harassing, it is not a secret anymore because Dan tells Mike so someone else besides Alex and Dan knows and we getting into the part where Alex wants to hurt Dan but there still not solid proof of that yet, soon Dan will have to break the truth to his wife Beth because one thing is having an affair and you don’t want them to know but when they are in danger that’s something you cant take chances with just come clean, admit guilty and life with the consequences but keep your family safe, I think women in the state of mind where Alex is are far more dangerous than men and Alex is going to proof it.

For what the tv series is I feel its a great story, at first I remember there were tons of bad reviews, people saying it deviate so much from the movie but for me that’s the entire point, its not going to be the same as the movie if they want to make multiple seasons or at least I would like it to be three seasons, right now it has a 7.8/10 on IMDB and 68% of average audience on RTT.

Dead Ringers - Season 1 - Episode 4 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Beverly finally gets pregnant but seems is not good news for everyone, not for Elliot and in a way not even for Genevieve since this news will be the catapult for an entire evening of madness.

On episode four a few theories I had are now proven and openly said by the characters, there was this half lie Beverly said to Genevieve that had a sword hanging over her head, Genevieve once ask her “I have only slept with you rigth?” Beverly said yes but never told her how they actually got together and Elliot finally said it, she is in love with her sister, this is something was assumed but so far she haven’t said it, Beverly been pregnant is them having a baby not just helping her sister to have a baby, Elliot has always been in love with her sister probably since they were Childs and never separated.

I really enjoy this episode format to change a bit, it felt like every day was a sketch, dark humor if I have to describe it to the point they hurt each other but still keep living together, they even do the same thing with their parents, at the end of the episode even their mother told Beverly how bad of a mom she was and that she will be bad at been a mom too, without any remorse just stone cold drop it on her.

The episode opens up with the twins spending a week with their parents, they have come to visit and seem to be amaze about what the girls have accomplish, at least that’s the concept, if you mute the episode and play this scene that’s what you might think but it felt different either like they disagree on what they doing or even felt its all wrong but they still want to support the girls at least their father wanted them to feel this way. Their parents refuse to get a tour, see the babies and even her mother asks a particular question “what happens to the mothers when they go home?” this clearly tells me they don’t necessarily agree with what the girls doing on the birth center, it would be worst if they knew about Elliot experiments.

The twins parents on this episode for me was just to fill in space, I don’t think they will be relevant for the rest of the story once they go back home, besides the twins are not close to them and that probably has to be with the fact that their mom was not a great mother, latter on the episode she clearly explain how she was never enough for the twins and at a point abandon them with her father but he stand strong and kept them all together, probably why Elliot likes him so much.

Elliot is still living the trauma of killings someone but she never did, she probably got so much coke that night that she remain high, like something broke on her brain that night.

Source

Elliot has been assisting church, even the Devil knows God exist so why not Elliot, she cant get over her recent trauma when she push a neighbor over the balcony but there was no body after, she went down stairs and nothing, it was like she dream it, that night she was extremely high on coke but it keeps hunting her so she goes to church to get rid of this thoughts.

Source

Lots of things happen during this episode but its still heavy on Elliot, Beverly is just part of the crew of the ship and Elliot the captain, Beverly finally gets pregnant and will have a baby with Genevieve but at the same time it looks like Elliot finally did it too, she manage to keep an embryo alive longer than she have been able to in the past, this was suppose to be their baby Elliot and Beverly’s baby and so they would stay together at least that’s how Elliot envision it.

Source

I had to triple stack them, Elliot dropping BOMBS on their birthday party, it was the twins birthday and her mom make cake for them at home, had a few people invited obviously there was Genevieve, Tom and why would they invite Joseph? they hate that guy. as I have been mention everything goes around Elliot and on this party she couldn’t hold it anymore, she had to vent out, most people may thing she was mean to Beverly and the rest but only Beverly knows this is normal Elliot behavior, the truth comes out that everything she does is to please Beverly, the birthing center, the baby, Genevieve and all because she is in love with her own sister. Genevieve always thought Elliot wanted to have her but in reality Elliot got her for Beverly and what she says is true because most of the time its Beverly asking Elliot to cover for her that’s when they loose or tie their hair, the only distinctive between them, Elliot explode after not only discovering Beverly was pregnant and not because of her I mean in terms of procedure plus she is planning to move out with Genevieve so she basically throw her under the bus with their parents and let the world set on fire without clearly thinking the repercussions.

If we think about it a bit Beverly has the same character as Elliot but its hidden, it only comes out when she is really pissed off like when they were asking Rebecca to invest on their project, Beverly snaps and that’s when usually Elliot keeps laughing at the situation but this rarely happens, instead Beverly use Elliot indirectly to get shit out of her bucket, things she is not comfortable with and been Elliot like she is, she doesn’t care doing this things for Beverly but mostly because she loves her, a very toxic love.

Dead Ringers - Season 1 - Episode 4 - RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

All this drama stories seem to be braking the egg shell on the forth episode, I don’t know if this is a pattern or a technique but same thing happens with A Small Light and The Patient where important events happen that changes everything for example on Dead Ringers now Beverly got pregnant, Elliot embryo at the lab is over 58 days, Genevieve knows Elliot was the one who got her for Beverly, so we are not the suspense of this things to happen anymore so what is going to be the new big thing on the series? because the birthing center is done too something they were fighting for on the first three episodes. The only thing comes to mind is that form now on they probably going to have a ton of problems at work because of their argument with Joseph, I don’t worry about their parents because I think they are irrelevant on this story, the twins like them but don’t need them and that’s the same for their parents. Beverly is going to try to get back with Genevieve but I don’t feel that adds a strong argument to the drama so for me its like part of the series just ended and we starting fresh with the twins both single again and both with baby’s although both babies are Beverly’s.

A Small Light : The Butterfly – Season 1 - Episode 4 – RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

The struggle for Miep and Jan continues, it just wont stop it never will until either they die or the war is over they both have taking a responsibility so big that is starting to tear them apart from each other but they have no other option to cope and survive. On episode four one of my suspicions have been confirm and that is Miep best friend Tess is either a spy or some how working with the Germans, well it is not necessarily 100% exact but her boyfriend is working with the Germans, Tess’s boyfriend has an auto parts shop who do business with the Germans although how deep they are into the War its not been said, Miep and Jan find out at a party Tess threw out and invite them, Jan notice how they were wearing NSB pin meaning they support the Germans in some way besides Tess gave Miep a necklace that Mr. Frank latter on confirm its a Jewish jewelry piece and most likely was stolen from a jew.

Now that we know how war went down during those days its sad to see how brave people like Miep and Jan did what ever they could to help others and most of the time I think it was without waiting for anything in return, they did it because it was the right thing to do, things have change through time and this kind of quality in people you rarely see this days, someone that helps you without knowing you and even risking their lives is something almost extinct, most people don’t have basic manners like good morning or thank you imagine how difficult is to find people who behave certain way or help others just because its the right thing to do, I remember one day someone seriously got mad because I constantly say thank you when ever I see its needed to please, he told me “Stop it, don’t me like that all the time” it felt so weird like I was wrong by doing something right and that’s just a detail of the many things I see every day since I have to deal with more than ten people every day out side of my work, I think if there was a World War III right now more people would die than in the first two but probably because of how we humans would abandon our own people, very extensive topic but makes me sad most of the time when I finish an episode knowing that they will all probably die before the series is over.

Miep got scared to death after some robbers got into Mr. Frank office and tear the place apart, they took the money, took the ration books so now the Frank’s are out of money and food, for Miep this is a big problem since she will have to hustle hard but for Jan is like nothing now that he has this connections with the resistance, when Miep arrives the office everything was turn down a complete mess but her worst fear was that this was the Germans who find the Frank’s hiding place but it was not the case, everyone was safe although when she brake the news to the Frank’s about the money all the girls start complaining when they find out that was Hanukkah’s money, a Jewish celebration they were waiting for but the worst part is that this also created panic in terms of security mostly for Dr. Pfeffer who was thinking about going back home since it was the same thing either the Germans find him at home or at this hiding place that had no special security, Mr. Otto had to step in and calm everyone the F down before someone hear them, all this happen during a Sunday when there is not suppose to be people at the office.

Miep and Jan relationship hit a rough patch since he has been going to church when he said he was going to visit his brother, Miep follow him and find out, its not going to church the problem but that he lied to her although he lied to protect her, the resistance is hiding people at catholic church risking their congregation but in religion doing the right thing is above anything else, keeping this people alive is the main priority and Jan is working with them for now doing small errands after the first big mission he had without knowing having to rescue a baby that was left on a drawer lol. Jan still cant come clean with Miep because that would put her in danger so he apologize for going to church without telling her.

Tess though about throwing an ice skating party at her boyfriend parent house to take a brake from war and everything that was stressful in her life, Tess was a women who doesn’t work and her mother has cancer she now have got herself a rich boyfriend who is giving her enough to survive plus a few gifts here and there, one of those gift end up been a necklace that she gave Miep for the party, they both thought it was a butterfly shape but it was really the Star of David open, a Jewish jewelry piece that was giving to Tess by her boyfriend who is making business with the Germans, Tess knows that much or at least that is what she have said so far, during those times you couldn’t fully trust anyone and worst now that it has been confirm their relationship with the German party, Miep got furious after Jan told her they were basically surrounded by NSB at the party, there were even German officers and could not believe Tess knew about it but there was nothing she could do, Tess was just trying to survive by been on the side of the bad ones during war, she had no job, no money, her mom had cancer and she didn’t want to see her die so she go with the flow and got her a rich boyfriend who makes business with Germans, you can argue that’s the wrong decision and that there is always the option to say no but every brain is a different universe and for her that was the right decision to survive.

After Jan and Miep got out of the party knowing they could not do anything to change Tess and all they could do is stay away from this people who they though were friends both go to visit the Frank’s who were celebrating Hanukkah, they didn’t have much but at least they were alive and healthy but for their luck Jan brought some food and champagne from the party and light up a few faces, it was Mr. Frank who told Miep about the necklace and she freak out running to the canal to throw it away but she was making too much noise, also start to argue with Jan about him lying to her about church and this is when he told her a bit more, not everything he have done but just that same as her, he is helping people who need his help to stay alive and that he cant tell her more than that because it would put her in danger, this cool her down.

Talking about danger, the resistance is planing an attack to fight back and I think Jan is going to offer himself to help with it, if he does that its not too smart and was probably better to tell Miep everything.

A Small Light : The Butterfly – Season 1 - Episode 4 – RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

Episode four felt a bit dull, it was mainly about Miep and Tess, how and why Tess at times look like living this great life but in reality she is in bed with the enemy, the only moment I felt this fear of someone dying or getting caught was at the start when Miep found the office upside down but for sure the series is setting up for something big, we now know that they can brake in easy into the Frank’s hiding place although now the door has been covered with a book shelf, but this last scene with Jan and Willem and all those grenades make me curious of what facility are they planing to attack, after all the series only talk about hiding people and there has not been much contact with German officers other than the one who brought home the two kids and this other men who is looking for Mr. Frank because he owe him money I think he is the one that will keep pushing until he finds their hiding place, I give this episode in particular a 6.5/10.

Silo : Truth - Season 1 - Episode 4 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Major Ruth has been murder, poison, they mention rat poison and that she was NOT the target. Jules gets involve in the case as a new Sheriff this is her first murder case officially, saying officially because she is after George murder too, Marnes is devastated by Major Ruth death but if Major Ruth was not the target and it was Marnes who from all the people he has pissed off in the past wants him death, if I have to take a quick guess is Robert Sims, remember how he wanted to put some one on Jules Sheriff position but Major Ruth intervene then the next vacancy would be Marnes because killing Jules could be hard to pull besides its too obvious.

After three episodes we already know enough about Jules, about her family, how she started her career on engineering and never came back to the upper floors of the Silo until now that she have been given the job of Sheriff, who is her father but on this episode its also mention how her brother dies and the impact it had on her family reducing it to she and her father only. On episode four I think concludes the story of Jules as a kid, how she stay on deep in the Silo shadowing engineers, starting from picking up scraps, repair them, all the way up in ranks to the point she was trusted with the Silo generator, its an interesting story and its like and episodes that holds up a lot of action for the next one, there is a lot of story from when she was a kid but also the start of an entire drama that is the conspiracy of Major Ruth accidental death because the real target was Manes, in the mean time Bernard is assign as temporary mayor but on whose side is him? also he and Jules have some story.

Marnes is totally broken by Major Ruth death, they were lovers but had to hide it to the public because of their roles in the Silo, he explains Bernard and Sims how when you walk the Silo people usually drink from each other bottles because its easier to reach from others back pack but Major Ruth bottle had a leak so he didn’t drink any water from her bottle, raising the question was she the target? was she the only target? probably the murder didn’t think about it and poison Marnes bottle only thinking he would drink from his own water bottle or was Major Ruth the real target? I already mention that I think Sims wanted Marnes Sheriff position open to give it to one of his own people, I always felt suspicious about Bernard and Sims, each with their own agenda within the Silo and probably know the truth about why and how all this people got into the Silo.

Since Marnes cant be rational at the moment Jules gets the case assign to her by Bernard acting as proxy Major, Marnes is pissed and has no hope on Jules but at least she can act rational and be proactive.

Its no secret that only Sheriff Holston wanted Juliette as a Sheriff and that was because he had other personal reasons and probably not because she was capable of pulling the job, she has everyone against her including Mandy who use to be Holston’s assistant, but Jules knows how to be a real pain the ass so she pulls the I’m The Boss card on Mandy and get her to look for George’s file, problem is that its no where to be found.

Jules have some big shoes to fill in and her first day at the job has been a nightmare, not only Major Ruth dies after putting Jules as the new Sheriff but she now has to baby sit Marnes who started his own witch hunt, he is not a popular guy around the Silo but people respect him although he got a few grudge here and there that got him his nose broken after insulting some ones wife to not get into unnecessary details, Marnes just went rouge and is getting peoples attention and hate making him a target again, before things go south for him Jules was able to explain him her relation with Holston how he was working on George case but she cant figure out where the case file is, all she knows is that the word Truth on Holston badge was the sign she was waiting for as the last time she saw Holston he said “when I find the truth I will send you a sign” that was the key worth Truth on the back of his badge so they agree to help each other.

Marnes has been constantly drinking since Major Ruth death, he cant help himself, after a visit from Sims he gets another visit but this time from and unknown uninvited guess whose mission is to kill him, if judicial aka Sims was the one who wanted him dead then now is the chance with him all drunk and not be able to fight back.

Jules got very lucky when she found George files inside an air vent on Holston apartment, he knew they were going to clean it up after he goes out to clean and “die” so he hide it inside an air duct, as we confirm on prev episode the Silo is govern by a conspiracy, the outside world is not what it seems from the inside but its hard to believe or prove it if you have never been outside and there is a pact with tons of restrictions to figure this out making it almost illegal to know more about it and that is the reason why George was murder, it would be very hard that he commit suicide, he was killed after finding something that he shouldn’t and was about to tell Jules but it was too late when she arrive, Holston also find out the truth about the outside but why he haven’t come back knocking on the door or probably he did but upper management wont reveal it, anything outside the Silo and how they got into the Silo is a mystery, soon all the characters will get involve into the conspiracy story and this story time episodes will be over.

Silo : Truth - Season 1 - Episode 4 - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

This episode at times felt boring but also like is setting up for something bigger now that we know the real target was Marnes and his killer accomplish the mission after the first attempt but ended up killing Major Ruth creating a bigger buzz around the Silo, so far it doesn’t look that this mistake would change their plans, I’m sure soon Jules will become a target as she starts to get deeper into George case and discover the same thing got him killed, there is a lot of screen time dedicated to Jules story as when she was a kid and how she started on the scraps yard recycling Silo trask, looking for things to fix and send them back up, how she and her father never had a good relationship after her mother died pushing her to isolated into tech, fixing and repairing things, leading to going deep into the Silo and end in charge of the Silo generator.

Drops of God: The Link – Season 1 Episode 5 – Recap INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Hirozaku is missing and Issei his son just got the news, him and his dad are very close but Issei cant keep asking himself why is he on this competition with Camille, he starts to question what could be the ties between him and Alexander Ledger rather than been just his student and its here when he discover he was more than just a regular student, after his dad disappear and his family officially turning his back on him Issei feels very low, lost stamina, out of strength. The story of Issei is finally getting stronger and starting to take shape, took it five episodes and it feels great because at this point we know a lot about Camille and here role on this series and I knew at some point Issei part of the story will become important, will be given more screen time, this episode is mostly about Issei and his family different than the first four when he was just on the side lines been the great Sommelier he is and stepping over Camille on the contest but not given that much screen time as he got on this episode.

At the moment of writing this episode I already saw episode six and I think for the rest of the season Honoka is going to get trashed badly, on episode four we learn how she and Alexander became lovers and Hirozaku save her reputation at taking Issei as his own son, making everyone think he is the father of a Tomine Diamond, the father of Honoka son when actually Issei is Alexander Ledger son, Camille step brother and the second reason he is on the contest, other than Honoka and Hirozaku no body else knows, at least until now her father Noboru Tomine haven’t show signs he knew so the moment this goes out to light because it will, at some point Issei is going to reveal this secret and bring it to the press, at least for now he just discover the real connection between Alexander and his mother but doesn’t have like real strong proof he is Alexander son, who knows if Honoka even kill herself the moment this news go out, we have seen on most Japaneses stories how some times the characters commit suicide when their honor gets beaten so hard and that’s whats going to happen with her and unfortunately with Hirozaku too because lets not forget that even though he did a great thing at taking care of Issei he also lied to the Tomine family for many many years.

Camille is evolving, now she has been offered to take care of his father book, The Ledger Guide, a wine guide that in the series represent basically the bible of wine, if your vineyard, your wine, and the editor talks well about it, it becomes and automatic success, Luca owns 45% of the Guide, it feels they want to use Camille because of her image, because of her last name but not really because they believe she can do same or better than her father after all Issei is way better than her on the technique and knowledge but she has this rare talent for wine tasting.

Until now Luca has been too good of a friend to Camille as he was to her father Alexander but if we look back is a man who is all about business and money, for example how Thomas offer to buy a $10k bottle of wine and took Camille to the vineyard that was miles away but when ask Luca he said he cant and wont open a $10k bottle just to wonder and ifs, all this time he has offer Camille his help, his nephew and Miyabi but this will change soon when Luca stakes on the Ledger and the contest itself look at risk by Camille actions.

Honoka seriously is so selfish, for her everything is in second place even her son and husband, she calls Issei to inform him that his father ran away and left behind his wallet, keys and personal things without saying he was going, even try to make Issei responsible for it after he mention they had this argument before he ran away but the truth is Hirozaku ran away because he couldn’t take Honoka rudness on how she treat him, they had a date and she never went, it was the drop that spilled the glass. During the argument when Honoka try to put this on Issei he clearly said it back “You are the one who always humiliate him”, it is about time that people around Honoka stops thinking she is this golden women just because she is part of the Tomine Diamond family and it starts with her son and husband, this is just the beginning, soon all the dirty cloth will be out.

Different than Honoka, her father Noboru is a bad ass and said things to your face, this is the moment when Issei is no longer part of the Tomine family, his grand father tells him he now MUST WIN, he has his support as grand father but Issei been on that contest discredit the Tomine family because he is or was the future of his family and didn’t need to compete for a inheritance, he already had one, Issei been on that contest is an insult that his grand father wont take, at least that’s his perspective, I’m not saying its my opinion, competing for Alexander wine collection is a huge price, Issie could do it for that reason and not because of the rest of the money but still that’s his grand father point of view and he is officially out of the family, the press conference was just a PR move from the family since Issei was getting so much attention on the news. Imagine, your father is missing, your own mother doesn’t support you and is a lying bitch and now your grand father kicks you out of the family, with a family like that you needs enemies.

Issei is getting all the love on this episode, he is now getting a lot of screen time and we starting to learn more of him as a person not just what a great Sommelier he is and that his family has money but more about how he is, why he was so arrogant at first, lets face it look at his mother and grand father, Issei for sure inherit that attitude from them. With his father missing and all this troubles with the rest of this family plus the contest pressure he is very down and look for someone who can listen to him, he has to vent out and choose Yurika Katase a journalist who he has been talking to in the past to get the contest covered, when they start talking about his father missing he still have the idea he ran away because of the argument the had but Yurika as a journalist see things different, why disappear now? he must have a secret? this is when Issei took interest on learning how his parents met at the university and whats really their story, he knew they both study together and met Alexander, he goes to the university to get more information about it with the excuse he wants to throw a party for his parents and bring this professor too. He ask her to help him find his father and she agrees with the condition that she gets an exclusive interview, Issei agree and she did help him, at least got a clue where his father went after he took the train.

I was so curious and excited about Issue story on this episode that Luca offering Camille the Ledger Guide was like Meeeh, btw Camille throw herself at Thomas and he reject her one night the got drunk, this was telegraphed from far away. Luca, business, The Ledger Guide, Luca and the publisher lure Camille to continue with the Guide but why putting so much pressure into it? they had her taste a wine her father like very much and Luca said its that easy just your opinion the wine you try but who knows if that’s really what will appear on the Guide after it gets edited, she doesnt look interested.

Issei kept his word and gave Katase the interview she ask for, on that interview he recognize how his grand father support is real and how he can understand one thing is family business and another thing is him supporting him as his grand father, at the end of the interview makes clear he will never take the Tomine Diamond family business no matter the results of the contests for Alexander Ledger inheritance, this was public strike one for Honoka. When Issei went to the university to get info on his parents and Alexander he got the name of Alexander translator, she is now old and very kind and knew the truth about Honoka and Alexander, Issei was talking about his father Hirozaku but for the translator it was a different man, it was Alexander and here when she slip and mention “….giving the class just for her” Issei was like WTF my father Hirozaku was a student, wasn’t he?

Mic drop….. she reveal the true story of how Hirozaku became his father but his biological father is Alexander, now a lot of things make sense for Issei.

Drops of God: The Link – Season 1 Episode 5 – Recap CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

This episode was a blast from start to finish, it shows now Noburu really likes his grand son but has a family name to defend, Honoka house of cards is about to go down and Issei has no mercy to her, Issei is opening up and starting to realize he cant win this contest alone not with all this problems he is having at his family after all he is wining the contest and has a lot of tools and experience Camille doesn’t but all that stress generated by family problems might tip him over, Camille was basically irrelevant to this episode but the next episodes will be fireworks now that Issei might look at Camille different and become more friendly even try to get closer to her, this tv series is awesome so far 8/10 and how knows it could probably get a 9/10 with upcoming seasons.

Citadel : Spies Appear in Night Time - Season 1 Episode 2 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

I think now I know people were expecting too much from this series, the trailer and the “on the next episode” scenes show too much, builds up that expectation, this second episode I think was a bit more mellow than the first but still had a lot of action and more story of what happen and who were Mason and Nadia, the story is still around Mason, Nadia and Bernard, there are no secondary characters with a side story and that’s fine since this episodes are still revealing what happen to them after the train crash in Italy eight years ago, a fact from the series, Mason and Nadia didn’t forget anything, they had this device on their neck that when the Citadel network cant locate them or communicate with them for certain amount of time it activates and delete their memories, once they reconnect upload them to a server to then genetically store into an injection, this is full science fiction so I don’t mind it, sounds way too ahead in time but we are living in a world where AI is present, something that in the 80s thought it was a myth.

Remember, If its on TV they probably already doing it!

After the train crash Nadia fall into the water and got out hurt very bad but a man going down the road stop to help her, he takes care of her but had her handcuff to the bed at his shed, I don’t know if he was Manticore or was just a creepy guy who didn’t trust Nadia because she had a bullet on her, Nadia got mad and fucking up real bad, they had this very nice fight, I’m sure you going to like it, after the fight the device that erase her memory activate and she was aware of it, it was not something new. I remember seen in the comments of a review that the spy was suppose to start working on remembering things about their past, that’s the “standard procedure” that Citadel did it wrong but actually it was planned to delete their memories and the way to recover them was planned too so there is nothing wrong, its just a tech that Citadel use to keep their secrets tight. Nadia wrote on her arm “Go to Valencia Asha” probably Citadel had an HQ over there or its planned for her to be there if her memories are deleted, like a spawning point on a RPG game, don’t matter she didn’t remember anything all she had to do was go to Valencia and see what happen but it was intentional so others from Citadel knew where to look for her, that’s fkn smart, usually when spies loose their memory they don’t know where to fkn go, who they are and what to do, at least on Citadel there is a plan if this happen. The problem with Mason is that when the device deleted his memories probably he was unconscious and didn’t have time to write his clue of what to do when he wakes up.

Back in the US, Mason still not sure how he is going to pull the entire spy role, get into a top security facility and come out with the X Case with all Citadel secrets, Bernard is he one pulling the strings and similar to Rabbit Hole Tv Series, Bernard tells the spy what to do and when since he is usually watching CCTV cameras and in constant communication with the agent, this method work out perfectly and they manage to get out with the case, probably just too easy in my opinion. The music, the small fight scenes and the split screens of Bernard watching what was going on and telling Mason what to do were very cool.

After they escape with the X Case, Bernard start telling Mason more about Citadel and how to use the case to locate other agents so it start scanning, Bernard need to find Nadia and get her to work back with Mason, he also explains Mason about why he “lost” his memories and how he have to inject himself the liquid solution with his name that is on the suit case, the coward that Mason is he hesitated and didn’t do it when he could. Andre Silje who work for Manticore was chasing them without them knowing and shot Bernard from the back, he is not dead but the impact was so hard it knock him out, the Van crash and the injection with Mason memories broke so now its all gone, no memories for Mason, but the X Case did locate Nadia in Valencia and that’s where Mason is heading next.

When Mason arrive Valencia he start looking for Nadia and finally locate her at a restaurant, he start telling her who she really is and explaining what Citadel is but she was not having any of that, Mason pull the same throwing a knife at you trick to get her muscle memory react but she didn’t catch it just avoid it and got mad at Mason. I think that’s because Mason is all show off, when he present himself he said “Mason Kane, spy, hot stuff” LOL, Nadia on the other hand is smart so why catching it if she didn’t have to, just avoid it.

Mason gets closer to her with the X Case and when the case detected Nadia it grand access to it that’s when it clicks for her, Mason already explain her about her memories but same as him didn’t inject back her memories.

Andre Silje the Mentacore agent got to the restaurant with another agent and a big fight started, Mason is still not up to speed so his fighting skills are poor to none and Nadia was getting her ass kicked too until she inject back her memories and everything change, it was Nadia Sinh Citadel agent fighting, knocks out Andre and escape. Problem for Nadia and Mason is that Bernard was not dead and now Mentacore has him to interrogate him.

Citadel : Spies Appear in Night Time - Season 1 Episode 2 - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

I decided to make the Conclusion section a PRO and CONS so it can be easier to explain and others identify what I like about the episode and what I didn’t.

PRO:

There is something weird to this TV Series, there are constant shooting and kicking action scenes but some how feel distant, I cant complain about the action scenes, special effects are good, I like how Nadia is the though one, the script is not dumb and is funny too, so far I like Citadel, solid 7/10 for me.

CONS:

What I REALLY DISLIKE is the outro, the “on the next episode scenes” , WHY THE SPOILER, why you have to do that, they gave out probably like 30% if not 50% of the action scenes and probably that’s why people complain, I hope they don’t keep doing this.

Fatal Attraction : The Watchful Heart - Season 1 Episode 3 RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Alex not looking so good, after been rejected by Dan, Alex has now brought this new personality of hers, it haven’t been said but it looks like she takes some kind of therapy and if not she should because rejection doesn’t go well with her and the worst part is that she has to deal with it the entire time she is at work, been Dan a very renounce lawyer everyone knows him and interact with him every corner he look at, this is wont do any good to Alex, not only that she is basically gone looking at her on the mirror at a point on the scene for HER only her the lights go out and she is alone in the dark, its only when a woman comes into the bathroom and she reacts, Alex is deep into a trauma that will make her take wrong and extreme decisions soon. From now on I expect all kind of craziness from Alex public exhibition, taking her rage against others, doing drugs, alcohol, harassing Dan at home and work, even suicide attempt, when I say attempt is because she wont do it she just wants Dan attention.

This is Dan face coming into court after he sees Alex, Alex is covering for Conchita, the interesting part is that I’m not sure since when and why, Alex brought the officer on this picture some fritters, they were just chatting and when she gave him the fritter he said “You need to stop this” is Alex hitting on the officer too? or just asking for favors in court? worst part is that the officer gave the fritters away to the guy in charge of the court agenda, this for sure make Alex mad, she even ask if they were good.

Dan is action professional, he is trying to not let Alex affect his job or performance at court, Dan doesn’t love Alex it was an affair but Alex is getting the wrong signals, probably she have gone through other experience where the man doesn’t know better and gets to the same position as her, aggressive and keeps arguing with her, Dan probably knows better and staying neutral but Dan is still a man and he likes to fuck Alex so he is weak and will do it again when she give him the chance soon, that’s going to be trying to put off a fire with gasoline.

As suspected, Alex does take and need therapy, here is she talking with someone on the line, at the moment saying how great things are which is a BIG FAT LIE but only on her own world everything is fine and at the same time mention she have been looking for someone referring to a therapist but cant find anyone that can work with her “busy” schedule and tries to convince this person on the line, who I assume was her therapist, to at least have sessions over the phone because all she needs is advice from time to time although this person sound very very opposed to the idea and ends up telling Alex she is not certified on California and she needs to keep looking. You know that moment it feels so awkward that you feel sorry for that person even though its not you on the spot, make me want to skip the scene, after she hangs up the call took her shoes off and hold ice cube on her hand while repeating “The hidden source is the watchful heart” a quote from a poem by Derek Mahon called “Everything is going to be all right” , repeating a phrase or a poem could work as a trigger to overcome stress or certain situations, all this are big red flags for Dan who is not aware of this side of Alex.

All Alex dirty laundry is coming out on this episode, not only it has been confirm the she needs therapy, but it doesn’t stops there, her neighbor across the door name Paul is a therapist that had a few sessions with her but decided to stop and has been avoiding her to the point of not answering the door, we don’t know why for sure but I think she is the type of person that reacts aggressive when things don’t go her way, they bump each other on the hall and she start questioning him why he has been avoiding her, Paul didn’t want to be rude or cause problems but had no argument and all he could say was he has been just too busy, minutes latter we find out a men who probably had some sort of relationship or live with her send her a box with her things and have short argument, she still mad asking for an apology from him and he says there is nothing to talk about. When someone has so many people mad or avoiding them at the same time, she is the problem, that lovely woman we saw on the first episode and a half is gone, Alex needs help, she has also been stocking Dan at work and I think she imagine a conversation with him one time when they were close to each other, he didn’t said a thing it was all her imagination at first and then exchange a few words, good for Dan he knew how to keep the distance.

To continue unpacking all Alex craziness, this episode confirm my suspicion that she started the fire alarm at the restaurant plus she hurts herself when she feels mad I’m not really sure what she feels because now there are a lot of mix emotions but she once burn her fingers when Dan had to leave and then start hitting her knew with a dumb bell after he left, because he wanted him to stay? I cant tell what exactly was going through her head but has to be something really bad to the point that Dr. Paul her neighbor he move out days latter after they saw each other and had that awkward conversation, the guy left and change his address just not be near Alex.

This train isn’t stopping yet, Alex is going through all the phases of someone who cant handle rejection, from the compassion and kind where she tries to come close to Dan again but he prove me wrong, seems he never fuck her again, not even drunk when he had the opportunity, respect to Dan he knew how to stay away and then politely told her is not going to happen again. Then she turns into the crazy person, notice I didn’t say woman because this state of mind can be achieve by men too, and left Dan a message basically saying she wont be available for ever so its now or never for him but she got it wrong by going to Dan place and talk to his wife, not sure what it was that about but then he goes back to Alex place and had an argument about it.

This woman is a menace, there are no limits, after her argument with Dan one night through acid all over his car, if from now on Dan never slept with her again and kept the distance I can really see why he declare himself guilty, Alex is the type of person who knows how to and is willing to stage up everything to incriminate Dan, as he told his daughter Ellen, in order for him to get out or at least keep that option available he had to plea guilty and wait a few years. He is now working with his old friend Mike, who was his lawyer to bring back the case and prove his innocence but no body is willing to help him.

One last Alex crazy thing she did, remember that case she was working for Alex, the woman who was unconscious at the hospital that SHE TALK TO and took her declaration to identify the aggressor, that was another big fat lie to come closer to Dan, that woman was brain dead, Dan got that call right before he discover Alex was at his place.

Fatal Attraction : The Watchful Heart - Season 1 Episode 3 CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

I knew that at some point the script will unpack all what Alex did to Dan or Dan did to her so she ends up dead and Dan behind bars but this was crazy quick, it was trauma after trauma all the things that Alex was dragging from where she use to life and her neighbors, the fact that Dr. Paul avoid her as a therapist, a probable previous relationship send her things to her, how almost everything she said or did was just to make Dan be with her, cant understand how people kept saying this is a bad series, episodes are getting higher scores on IMDB and I’m sure there is a lot of things to unveil before Dan can prove he didn’t kill Alex.

A Small Light : Motherland - Episode 3 - RECAP - INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Miep and her husband Jan have become really good at hiding people, they have now added to their belt hiding their tenant’s grand kids after their father got arrested at the train station but they have also got very good at taking risks, the nerves you need to have to do what they have done so far, sneaking people and supplies right in front of German Officers, lying to their face but I think the most dangerous thing they have done is trust other people that help them, that first step is the most dangerous having to trust someone you don’t know, someone who could be working for the Germans and putting everything at risk with a single decision.

I sense soon Jan is going to become more than just a messenger for the resistant, I think during those times it all works like a ladder that he climb with every mission he accomplish, he has now gather papers and even safe kids that are not his because he was ask to cooperate, soon he might have to do something more risky all this without telling Miep, if things go south for him the moment Miep finds out she will be devastate feeling helpless because she didn’t know anything of what he was doing and for who.

Like it was not enough that they taking all this risks for Mr. Frank, friends and family now a wolf step to their door, Mr. Tony Ahlers shows up, a man who is part of the German Party NSB has come to collect after he heard Mr. Frank talking about the the war and how bad it would end for Germans, basic blackmail but Mr. Frank cant pay him now, Tony is putting pressure on Miep and the rest of her co workers to give in Mr. Frank, things will get intense soon, this man wont go away that easy.

Jan has officially started working with the resistance, this is making him become more comfortable at taking risks but there are times when he just want to shit bricks of how scare he is, after watching today episode I think it would not be strange for him to get killed since he is getting more expose going out there getting things done for the resistance this increase the possibility of him getting caught, as he become more effective his boss will assign new missions to him probably more difficult than the previous one but Jan is also taking benefits from the resistance so you can say its a fair trade? not sure because he we think about it Miep and Jan had no obligation to help others, they doing it because they want it and is the right thing to do but its very rare the people that will put their life on the line just to help others and do the right thing, that’s quality in a human but some times taking excessive risk can be foolish.

At the Frank’s hiding place things are not going very well, confinement is taking the best out of them, in my case during the pandemic having my two kids with us at the apartment was not hard because they are still little but having two teenagers in such small place might be harder, been on house arrest plus the fear that you put yourself there because they are looking for you makes it harder for everyone, there is also the fact that they have a guess family and a friend so every fight or argument is heard by everyone, there is no privacy and at some point someone will give their opinion on the matters discuss without been ask too, making things harder for everyone, its just pure madness and chaos, Anne is constantly arguing with her mother and Mr. Frank have to deal with them the best he can.

Going through the line of events, remember how dangerous is to trust people you don’t know but have no option because you are desperate and need help, this is Jan who was send to pick up some papers from an apartment raided by German Officers, the guy who send him to pick up the papers is suppose to help him hiding his tenant grand kids, see how none of this people are friends or family or had no tights to them but he is still a good man trying to safe lives, he was told papers, a package in a drawer but actually was a kid, this entire saga of taking risks at some point will led him to think he can do things and that could get him caught, lucky for him this time he wasn’t and was able to retrieve the package.

Hermine, that’s Miep real name, she was also rescue given to a Dutch family to hide her, when she arrive she knew no Dutch and that’s one of the reasons she was so close to Casmir one of her step brothers, funny how her step parents at the start of the series wanted her to marry Casmir, he was the only one who speak German at the house when she arrive and gave her the name Miep because Hermine sounded like an old lady name, they became very close and only talk German at home so others cant understand them, Casmir is having a hard time with the Germans too as he is homosexual, German regime is also against homosexuals at the time so he may have to go in hiding if he cant control himself, Miep tries to explain him this but he doesn’t want to listen reason, he knows Miep has a secret but she wont tell, not even Casmir, must be hard to lie to love ones and keep such secret but then its your and others lives on the line.

A Small Light : Motherland - Episode 3 - RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

This is one of those series I have no complains at all, usually I’m a fan of long series where you have five to eight seasons but with this couple of Mini Series I have been watching like Florida Man, Swarm, The Patient, Obsession I’m starting to like the format, is mostly pure action packed on each episode, not necessarily kicking and shooting action but on A Small Light is the constant suspense of whats going to happen next and if things will continue end in favor of the good guys, how Miep and Jan start to get all this value contacts, people form the resistance but their first German threat has knock on their door with Mr. Tony Ahlers looking for Mr. Frank to collect.

I just notice I have been using Season 1 on previous two episodes and their cover image, Im still working on formats and getting use to blog, only my fourth month.
