An explosive disaster provides a unifying climax of sorts. But does it answer any questions?
The penultimate episode of the season was the show’s darkest and best hour to date.
Ramon and Audrey take some time off from their respective forms of martyrdom.
This week it was clear that Farid is at least as far gone as Ramon is.
Farid’s inexplicable connection with Ramon has awakened Farid to the possibility of some overarching force in the universe.
Another disturbing revelation rocks the Bayer-Boatwright family, as Audrey’s faith in her own way of doing things continues to unravel.
As usual, Greg puts the episode’s big idea into words: “Maybe grand gestures are the best we can offer in a dying civilization.”
Until now, Greg came across as a sort of living Op-Ed page. This week we got a more sensitive look into his existential crisis.
This week’s episode questioned whether empathy remains a viable mode of personal or political action.
