This week on The Ev3nt, the stage was set for the (anti?) climactic series finale. Simon and Weasel have joined forces, and are doing their best to play the part of the rogue hero that Sean has been occupying (with help from Vicky) for the better part of the season, Darth P falls further down the rabbit hole, and Mr P makes a full recovery!
The episode kicks off with Sophia walking through an urban wasteland, presumably after the virus has killed off the entire world’s population.
Too bad this show didn’t get renewed…the stage is set for Zombiepocolypse.
Sophia is having obvious problems coping with the whole death and destruction of it all. By her hand, Billions of people are dead. I do find it a bit odd that, despite being stricken with a violently destructive virus, these people all appeared to be going about their day in a relatively normal way. The whole point of making the virus slower was to increase the ability for people to spread it…so I’m guessing that you don’t feel fine one moment, and then die in the next. So…
…someone please explain to me why this guy was out riding his bike?
Sophia just keeps wandering around, saying “hello?” Finally, one of the cars she greets with a questioned “hello?” has a little girl in it, who jumps up against the window and startles poor Sophia. The girl asks if she’s a doctor, and begs for her help, but Sophia can’t do anything for her. The girl starts screaming and pointing her hands on the window and finally Sophia wakes up in her cot int he warehouse.
Sophia pays Dr Lu a visit, and learns that Leila has effectively mutated the virus to kill much slower, so that their plan will work. She tells Sophia that within 2 weeks, 25% of the world’s population will be dead…and within 5, 98% will be dead. She asks Lu if there’s any way they can limit the number of casualties, and Lu says no. Sophia is obviously unhappy about this, but Lu tells her that if the situation were reversed, we’d do the same to them.
At the hospital, Mrs P is standing outside Mr P’s room talking with an assistant, when all of a sudden the machines hooked up to her husband start beeping and whizzing and generally going all sorts of R2-D2 on us. She screams for the nurse/doctor, who run in. Ginger Doc sees that Mr P is showing some positive signs, but warns her that this could be anomalous, and not to get her hopes up. Yet again she tells him he’s wrong.
Back at the warehouse, Carlos tells Sophia that their people in the motherland have finished making the necessary preparations. He tells her that they’re almost ready with the portal, but it’ll have to be turned on for several hours, and there’s a recon satellite in the area that might win the game of hide-n-seek. She tells him she’ll take care of it, and calls Darth P.
You only call me when you need something…and that ‘something’ is never sex…I feel so used….
Like every other time Sophia asks him to do something, Darth P balks, and then ultimately agrees to it for little more than a pat on the head and a “good boy.” He tells her that Mr P is getting better, and she blames it on him for not stopping the counter-agent. She tells him he cannot allow Mr P to re-enter the equation, or they’re all fucked. He asks her to give him her word that she’ll spare the ‘merican lives if he continues to work with her, and she, of course, lies through her teeth and says she will.
Simon and Weasel meet up at a pub, and Weasel tells Simon that Mr P is getting better. They put their heads together to try to figure out Sophia’s plan…Simon mentions that she was looking for a weapon in Siberia, and Weasel shares that they learned that one of her men was analyzing ice core samples from eastern Russia. The come to the conclusion that the weapon has likely made it to US soil, and just then they look at the news and see info about the terrorist attack and Simon recognizes the dead guy that the news unorthodoxly decides to show on TV. I think this confirms their suspicions.
Sean goes all emo crybaby about the courier getting away AGAIN. Vicky tells him they’ve already done a million times more than anyone else, and to stop being such a girl. They arrive at the address on the dead bad guy’s driver’s license. It’s some warehouse looking place, and I can’t even fathom a guess as to what kinda operation this is supposed to be…
Counterfeit laundry racket, perhaps?
No one recognizes the dead guy. I guess this operation is not too illegal, because Sean and Vickie just head further inside and no one seems to care. Sean heads up stares and pulls out his gun, and Vickie does the same thing on the other side of the warehouse. She wanders through a doorway, and Simon snags her gun and puts his to her head. He calls Weasel out to check out the hostage, and just then Sean walks around a corner and puts his gun on Weasel. Simon tells Sean to drop his gun, and Sean’s like “NO U!” and Simon’s like “NO U!!” and Sean’s like “NO U!!!” and Simon’s like “NO U!!!!”
Finally, they realize they’re not getting anywhere, so they all introduce themselves, and Simon decides they should team up, and they split up to search the place.
Back in Warehouseland, Dr Lu tells some other guy to keep Leila alive. They don’t want her to die yet. Leila begs her not to kill all those people. Dr Lu tells her sorry, but they’re just doing what they have to to take back what’s rightfully theirs. Apparently there was something else MFB never told her…The Others were on Earth first, and are now all like
FINDER’S KEEPERS, ASSHOLES!!!
Sophia unveils her grand plan for spreading the virus. It involves infecting food distribution stations, contaminating currency, and releasing the virus at Dulles international…
So…the flu virus can only survive outside a host for 2-8 hours (according to the CDC)…maybe this special Spanish flu is somehow different. Regardless, it seems like she’s making this more difficult than need be. Why not go to Union Station at rush hour, and a few major airports, and release it in the air like they’d intended at the mall?
Anyways, this plan seems to be perfect in her eyes. She tells everyone they won’t see each other again until after it’s all over, but she wants everyone to honor and mourn the soon-to-be-dead.
Darth P is walking through the hospital, and is on the phone trying to get the satellite redirected. The guy tells him this is an order that comes from the Director of National Security, and he reminds to dude that there isn’t one of those at the moment. The guy tells him the satellite will take 2 hours to be repositioned. Darth P meets with Ginger Doc to check up on Mr P. Ginger Doc tells him that this is a very atypical stroke case, but he can’t tell him any more due to the whole doctor-patient confidentiality thing.
What did the five fingers say to the face??
She calls him out in front of everyone for poisoning Mr P. He just stands there and takes it. Just then, Mr P wakes up, and Mrs P runs into the room. Mr P asks the doc to leave so he can talk with his wife. Ginger Doc tells him to stay calm because he’s still very fragile…
Mr P asks his wife to recap what’s happened the last few episodes while he’s been out, which of course will do nothing to keep him calm. She tells him that Darth P is working with Sophia, and that’s all she knows, but he remembers that she was planning to bring all her people to Earf, and puts the two together…
You’ve GOT to be kidding me!!
He asks her to get Weasel on the phone.
Cut to Sean/Vicky/Simon/Weasel in the apartment. Weasel gives us some background on Vicky by asking her questions…apparently she was CIA, but left because she was being scapegoated by her division chief around the time that Weasel came into office, and started running rogue black-ops. She tells him she doesn’t know anyone like that…anymore.
Sean asks Simon about Leila (ugh), and Simon tells Sean that MFB died, and that Leila stayed behind. They all congregate and decide there’s nothing worth anything in that apartment, and Simon posits that he probably trashed it when he went on his little operation, “which appears to have been recently.” Just then they hear a garbage truck backing up, and run down and stop the truck from taking the dumpster. In digging through the trash, Sean starts noticing receipts all from around a small area in Maryland.
Just then, Weasel gets a call from Mr P. He catches Mr P up to speed on everything else that’s happened, including the whole Darth P working with Sophia and being played for a fool and firing Weasel and foiling their efforts to stop Sophia. Mr P tells him to keep doing what he’s doing, and that Darth P is going fucking down.
Mr P tells Ginger Doc he’s off to the White House, and GD balks. He says Mr P can’t put any stress on his body. Mr P tells his wife to get him some damn clothes.
There are aliens trying to eradicate our entire race, and because of your resistance I may have to go out in public like THIS?!?! Help me out, dammit!!
Back at the warehouse, The Others are loading up the virus onto vans. Just then, Carlos calls her to tell her that everyone is in position. Sophia tells everyone that it’s time to begin!!!
Back with Sean and the gang, Sean tricking the NSA mainframe to believe that they’re not trying to access remotely, but rather from within the network. They use Chief of Staff Shatmypants’ password to log in, and Sean starts inputting the information from the receipts. Pretty quickly, they’re able to find the guy, and track him to their warehouse Hooverville.
Lu tells Sophia that all the distribution channels are getting up and running, and will be ready to spread the disease very shortly….once they get their canisters of plague. Carlos ships those off right then and there. Sophia and Dr Lu check on Leila. Sophia sees she’s suffering, and asks Lu to end it quickly and painlessly.
In the car, Sean hands out ammo, and Simon notices the scroll that Darth Flowers gave him way back when. Simon tells him about Flowers, and his claims that he was part of a tribe that protected humans from Others, and Simon tells Sean that if Flowers could read the scroll, he knew more than he was telling him, and alludes to something having happened in the past, and why they’re back here now. They arrive at the Warehouseville. Vicky distracts the two guards by being a hot girl…
Seriously, though “I ran out of gas?” Not nearly as good as “I locked myself out of my hotel room in nothing but a towel” from earlier…
Anyways, thanks to the diversion, Weasel, in all his pro marksmanship, takes both guards out from long range with his handgun.
Inside the warehouseville, Lu tells Leila what she’s about to do to her. The first injection will knock her out, and the second injection will make sure she never wakes up! Leila has been writhing up a sweat.
Sean and the gang run into the warehouse and immediately take a hostage. He tells them that there are only four people there including him…or five if you count the prisoner. Sean figures out that it’s Leila!
Leila, thanks to her sweat, is able to slip free of the restraints and punches the unholy fuck out of Dr Lu! A moderately sexy catfight ensues, and Leila gets the upper hand and sticks Dr Lu with her sleeping drugs!
I think a “How do you like THEM apples?” is in order…
So Lu is unconscious, and just then Sean and gang run in. Leila and Sean have a briefly happen reunion, and she tells him that Lu used her to mutate the virus. She also mentions that all of their plans are on a nearby laptop. Sean tells her they’re going to get her out of the bubble-room, and she says no, because she’s infected, and seems a little surprised that Sean didn’t put that together from what she told him just 5 seconds before.
You were supposed to be the smart one…I was supposed to be the one with breasts. Did you forget that?!?
Back at the White House, Mr P storms into his office to confront Darth P. Mr P tells him that he knows about the plot to kill him, and that he’s been working with Sophia, etc. Darth P continues to play dumb about trying to kill him, but lets Mr P know about the “peace agreement” that he’s working on with Sophia. Mr P laughs at him and tells him to enjoy his final days at the helm, and Darth P tells him that there’s no way he’ll let Mr P return to Presidency, because Mr P is no longer fit to run the country thanks to the strokes.
Back at warehouseville, Weasel tells them that he can’t hack the laptop. Simon somehow has gone into Leila’s bubble to retrieve Dr Lu, and brought her out into the open, despite the fact that this should have made everyone else sick. I mean, if we’re expected to believe that the virus will live on currency and lettuce, wouldn’t it live on the coat of a doctor, even if she herself is immune to it? Anyways, whatever.
Sean and Leila have a heartwarming (wrenching?) conversation. Sean tells Leila he’ll find a way to fix her, because “there’s a cure….there has to be!” She tells him he’s wasting his time, then they go on to talk about the life they’ll have once this is over…how they’ll move to Portland or Seattle because Boston is too cold, and the house and the yard with the white picket fence.
Simon wakes up Dr Lu with smelling salts, then asks her for the password to the laptop. She tells him it’s too late, so he turns things up to 11.
WE’RE ONE EPISODE AWAY FROM THE END, WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME?!?
She does what any remotely sane person would do with a power tool to her head, and gives up the password. They realize theres a ton of information on the laptop, but Simon recognizes that there’s no way Lu will give them the info they need, so Weasel starts sifting through what’s on the laptop.
To conclude the episode, we get another montage of the plague-bringers in position, and Sophia calls her portal guy and tells him that the satellite has been moved, and it’s time to boot up. He flips the switch, the portal begins the process of powering up, and SCENE.
