I assume the plan isThe three spies weren't shooting randomly, the redhead walked right by a full conference table to pick off one guy who got up and started to run.
I'm not sure it's been explicitly stated in this thread, but I truly expected a retaliatory virus attack from the infiltration.
It could be as simple as Claire becoming attached to her “father” since she lost her parents on the other side. Maybe she gave instructions to not kill him since it wouldn’t make much difference to the overall plan.I'm bummed about the wait. That's an odd scheduling choice unless I'm missing something.
There's lots to resolve in the second part of the finale. The attack plan certainly took out large swathes of the intelligence office, but the deliberate move to get back to the border along with sparing Clare's dad has me scratching my head. Was the office massacre only a secondary goal concealing something bigger?
Sounds like Clare survived the crash and presumably Peter did, as well.
Sounds like a pretty good plan to me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯I assume the plan is
Make it look like an all out attack from "the other side", having at least one guy try to return makes it look like a sanctioned attack. That would trigger either the passage way being shut down or some sort of retaliation.
I think thats a terrible plan so I'm hoping there is more to it
I mean yeah, you'd have to be either really dense or really ignorant to miss the almost sledgehammer like subtlety of the show to this point.
More via the link.Let’s talk about what is probably the most unusual conference call in the history of TV between the two worlds.The very unusual tech involved is virtually identical. Are the members of management on both worlds the same people?
That is something that is potentially being suggested. The answer is a lot more complex and it's an answer that our second season really wraps its arms around: Who is management? What is their history? What is the history of the crossing and the history of the Office of Interchange? How did it really form in the first place and why? And how it developed over the decades. We understand why Indigo is driven toward some sense of revenge against our world. What we haven't yet seen a lot of is how Indigo also came about and what its connection with management is. At the end of the first season, we wanted to introduce the idea of management in a way that wasn't what we would otherwise expect because in the second season management is a kind of character of their own.
More via the link.This is a show which would benefit from freeze-framing, especially when it comes to the Crossing. Or even with the zany Management set-up in the finale.
I really hope people do freeze-frame. I want to invite people to watch it on that level of detail. I wanted the show to feel like a Robert Altman version of science fiction more than Fritz Lang. Altman left all these windows open where you could see Lyle Lovett wandering around in the bushes back there, and you’re like, “What is he doing and why is he doing that?” It feels like the frame is alive more than just its four borders. One of my favorite things to look at in freeze-frame are all the Interface documents, all that code. That’s the kind of stuff we really live for, because the weirder, the more out there, the more zany the concept is, the more rigid the execution has to be.
For the Crossing, everyone wanted to turn the lights up and let it be seen. I said, “No, let’s pull out all of these lights, and make it really dark, and leave people craving more detail.” If you freeze-frame it, look at the dead center of the Crossing the details on the walls speak to the origins of the Crossing. Management, we had so much fun with that. We found the two strangest, most brilliant actors to play the respective Operators on either side in the finale. What kind of governing body protects the Crossing between two parallel worlds? The second season focuses in large part on the history and origins of Management.
