“Don’t make me show you crazy!”
Loved that line. Rollo’s badassed. I thought it was odd for the Secretary of Prisons (Portman) to dress as the Cape, given the attempt on his life. I liked Vince’s remark, “I never had a fan before.”
Scales was funny in a scary, “WTF are you lookin’ at,” sort of way. He reminded me of big intellectually challenged bad guys from other movies.
The scene with Trip and Travis talking through the locked door was kind of cute. “You’re not going to let me in, are you?”
The heated exchange between Fleming and Orwell was interesting. Too bad half the people watching this show don’t know what fascism is, or can appreciate the dangers of a police state, private or otherwise.
Scales’ people skills need serious work. He outed Chess and everyone just laughed at him. Too funny. Guess I’d have robbed the train too if my pride and credibility were hurt.
The Cape’s packing heat? Makes sense, I suppose. “You give me something to do, or I’m going rogue!” I’m sorry, but for that line Vince should’ve smacked Portman in the head with the gun, not given it to him. Then he should’ve gone after the writers for putting that line in the dialogue. And WTF’s up with the aluminum foil?
“I’m the Secretary of Prisons, and I’m authorized to blah, blah, blah..!” I lol’d at that scene. I didn’t know Richard Schiff was so funny. Ha.
I can’t believe Vince tried to grab Scales with his cape while atop a moving train. I lol’d here too. The music score is…cheesy. Oh, so cheesy.
I don’t know much about trains, but will decoupling the last car really turn a train into a runaway locomotive? Seems like a really bad design if that’s the case.
I kind of felt sorry for Scales being abused and caged as a kid, but they could’ve made him angrier or claustrophobic instead of just banging his head on the bars like an imbecile. I guess he had to bust out somehow.
There’s lots of speculation about a Cape/Orwell ship. I’ve got reservations, but ultimately I don’t really care either way. It looks like Orwell’s interested in more than just Vince’s cape, if you know what I mean.
