Yeah but what is it doing in the future and how did it get there? And why is it on the machine?

Why'd they get such a recognizable character actor for Cole's dad just to kill him off :\

Also, it seemed like they were trying to homage that scene in the movie, but of course the impact just wasn't there.

I guess Cassie and Cole can finally hook up now :lol

So, what's this like then?

The film is one of my favourites. So, like the snob I am I rolled my eyes when I heard they (SyFy) were making a show based on it. Is it worth it?

Good episode. They did a really good job of making Katrina look younger. I had to look up her real age just to verify hah.

yeah. for some reason I was thinking the 12 monkeys were all female, though I'm not sure how the pallid man fits into that.

why didn't cole remember cassie drawing his blood and the day his father died? he was six after all.

I think at this point it is safe to say our real "antagonists" are going to be further-future time-travelers.

The only agenda which makes sense of ensuring circumstances create the utterly broken world of 2043, is that even further in the future a group/individual in power LIKES the circumstances humanity finds itself in, and like with Ramsey, now has incentive to make sure that world comes to pass.

I expect Olivia's parentage, the weird-albinos, etc... all speak to some trans-human, or post-human group.

I watched it. Still not sure if everything happened that was 'supposed' to did or if Cole really changed things. Ramse telling Cole to send Cassie to the future sure seemed like it was all part of the plan, but then the future Albino monkey acted baffled when she appeared.

Cole going back for Ramse seems like it might have screwed up the cycle though, especially if he can save his life


Still not sure how the creepy investor lady knows all this stuff.

Man, so Maggie Q and Lyndsy Fonsesca will be in the next season right? Right, guys? This Nikita reunion needs to continue. Also, that finale was kinda confusing. So she's in the future...now what? And was the head monkey using some time traveling abilities when they entered the facility? When the lights flickered, it looked like he or someone used some instant transmission that caught the gruff dude off guard.

12 Monkeys...monkeys...Saiyan...Goku...instant transmission....the 12 Monkeys are Saiyans!?!

But seriously, amazing ending. Everything has been screwed up big time. Cole sending Cassie into the future and saving Ramsay changed everything. The monkeys have no idea what's happening, the only thing going as planned is crazy lady delivering the virus throughout the world, which Cole and Ramsay will probably stop next season when Cassie heads back to 2015 and tells them of how the virus was distributed or something along those lines.

So...Ramse isn't the witness after all? Freaking time travel man.

It looks like this is where the cycle finally breaks, with Felicity Cassie being sent to the future and Cole saving Ramse's life. Season 2 is gonna be a ride.

That was a really good finale, possible future lady and the others probably think they had how time travel works figured out but nope. Also, who's Cole's mother going to end up being?

Great solid finale and overall a really pleasant surprise. Perfect casting choices and interesting characters. Hopefully picks up exposure in reruns and word of mouth. Fully intend to pick up the Blu-Ray to support this and theres not much I do that with these days.

Was it flawless overall? No. But they've opened up avenues where they can take the show to make natural seeming progress crucially without feeling they're just clinically setting up a new 'oh now we have to get to X / talk to Y / acquire Z' that so pisses me off about this type of show.

They may have done that but it's not felt laboured

Caught up on the show, fantastic series and it really, really surpassed my (super low) expectations from SyFy. I am really happy that they seem to be serious about putting out good science fiction again, and look forward to the roster of new series like Dark Matter and The Expanse.

Can't wait for season 2 of 12 Monkeys too, the writers really knocked it out of the park thinking about time travel, paradoxes, loops, causality, etc. One of the few shows where I really don't understand whats going on sometimes and have to go look stuff up on the Internet.

Seconded - Id like to know this also! The OP here was great.

It may not be setting viewerships or GAF threads alight, but I'd like to know we're getting a decentish S2 OT.

If you're tied up NTGYK or don't fancy it, I'll put my hat in the ring to do one. I love this show.

The end result is a bit more "geocities" than I was hoping, but I tried. I have not used photoshop[ in 2 years.

If we stay here that's fine... I just wish GAF was more active about this show. It is great, and S2 looks to be setting up some great ideas.

I am not 100% sure about everything, but I dont think there is anything involving direct harm. There is one scene in season one involving two starving people that have an option to kill/eat a dog to survive, but they choose against it. The dog lives on happy. There is a few moments of pondering, but nothing more than that.

The show is pretty good and worth a watch. I went into it looking for things to complain about (I was a fan of the movis), but ending up liking just about everything they did.

I thought we had an OT for season 2. Search isn't coming up with anything.

I finally watched the last 3 eps of last season and the first 2 spread out over the weekend and today, pretty good.

Spoiler discussion about s2 so far So, how come there's still bad blood between Ramsey, Deacon, and Whitley in the new future? I guess they were told what happened by Cass and Jones? I thought things had sorta changed to an extent.

Cool to see Col. Tigh as well.
