Last week, it wasn’t clear if Victor was having a premonition when Daniel Salazar, his “guardian angel,” gave him water as he sat locked in a cell. This week is devoted solely to what occurred to Daniel for the reason that fireplace, the place everybody assumes he died. I can’t say I used to be burning with curiosity about what might have occurred to him, however I do respect Worry The Strolling Useless’s dedication to holding monitor of all its characters, even those who’re within the periphery.
Sadly for these now-side characters, it’s troublesome to care about them when the stakes are very low of their respective plots. Daniel’s and Victor’s separate storylines really feel too far faraway from the principle plot, which is much extra gripping than simply seeing what Daniel’s been as much as since surviving the hearth. Till the ultimate third of “100,” the only focus is on Daniel’s conflict legal previous, which is a nap. It’s such a nap his new buddy falls asleep. For each scene of “perdóname” there must be an equal scene of carnage. Worry The Strolling Useless doesn’t want zombie assaults to maintain the motion at a clip, however it does want one thing greater than countless remorse for the previous.
When Daniel will get to the dam, his previous can really affect his current. Forcing Daniel to change into the killer he was within the San Salvador civil conflict lastly attracts out the stress, as we reckon who he was with who he’s now. His ruthless pragmatism to show in Efrian confirmed his willingness to fall according to this new world order, which he at leasts understands from his time in El Salvador. Efrian undermines the brand new capitalist system in place, the place the forex is the water, as he steals from the boys who management the useful resource and redistributes it. So there’s some rigidity when Daniel is anticipated to throw the traitors over the ledge, although it’s just a little far-fetched that he can be so trusted after just a few days within the make use of of the water boss.
The tip units up what may very well be one other fascinating location for this season of Worry The Strolling Useless to discover. With the boss lifeless, will Victor and Daniel mix their enterprise savvy and conflict legal previous to run the dam themselves? Is “100” simply these characters’ considerably sloppy episode to arrange one thing attention-grabbing for them, like Madison and firm attending to the ranch? How these characters run the dam can be a high-stakes enterprise to enter into, and one other robust location for season three to discover. It will make this drag of an episode price it.
- This episode was possibly 98 p.c in Spanish with English subtitles, which is fairly cool for a mainstream American TV present.
- A zombie received struck by lightning. I don’t benefit from the heavy-handed symbolism that the writers can’t appear to withstand in relation to Daniel’s redemption story, however that lightning strike was superior.
- Scraping away Daniels’ rotting leg mush is sweet—good and gory. When The Strolling Useless and Worry The Strolling Useless aren’t constantly seeing what they will get away with within the gore division, the writers aren’t absolutely exploiting the probabilities their reveals have to supply.
- Below post-apocalyptic communism, there can be water for all!
