Warning: General spoilers ahead
Going into Sunday’s episode and the post Central Park shit-show, things have taken a more gloomy tone. We don’t check in with Feraldo this week and see how she’s handling such a crippling defeat, but we do spend some time with Fet (Kevin Durand), and boy is he down on himself. Having trouble coming to grips with the Master’s elegant trap and the massive loss of human life, Fet decides to pair back up with Setrakian (David Bradley) as he begins making preparations on building the stone sarcophagus for the Master as is outlined in the Lumen.
In the meantime, Quinlan (Rupert Penry-Jones) decides to pay Dr. Goodweather (Corey Stoll) a visit to see what progress he has made from the scientific angle. As is hinted in the below promo photos, this is where Dutch (Ruta Gedmintas) is finally introduced to Quinlan, and as most would suspect, the meeting is awkward at best. When you watch the episode, be sure to pay close attention to Quinlan’s face when he meets Dutch, and all I can say is he’s definitely “curious” about her. Based upon Eph’s findings, Dutch, Quinlan and Dr. Goodweather, too, go on a field trip, and it’s pretty hilarious to watch it all play out. Another interesting sidenote is this arc ties very nicely back to something from the Pilot, which in my opinion is one of the best parts of the episode.
Finally, as the promo photos also depict, Palmer is deteriorating very rapidly and so calls on Abraham once again to beg him for the white. Of course, the deal was Palmer would have to learn the new identity of the Master, and so far, he hasn’t been able to do that. However, he is able to offer up one very valuable piece of new information, and the only question is whether it’s big enough to force Setrakian’s hand.
