Best Show of 2018
Best show in a long time, not just 2018.
What a perfect ending. They cleaned it all so the story has new story lines for season two, without a manufactured cliff hanger PLUS it will be easy to remember who is who and where we are.
Often with a show I need to rewatch the entire last season to remember what is going on. Here I will remember, but want to rewatch because it was so great!
Unless I missed something, the only part of the finale that seemed 'squeezed in' was when Quayle came home to find Claire cleaning up after someone she killed. Was this someone we were supposed to know, or was it just to show that there is a hit out on her? Didn't like this part as it seemed odd that someone that just survived a car crash could easily overtake her attacker. Would have been better if Quayle came home in the middle of the attack and they both killed the guy.
Didn't she kill Aldrich's sidekick who was following her?
He had to go to keep the secret, so I excused this.
I couldn't make out who it was, but you're right. Thanks.
The person she killed we have seen in the show all season. He didn't follow orders since he was pissed. And decided to kill Claire. On!y it backfired on him.
He was told not to do anything and just keep a watch on Claire. Which is why he was sitting in the car at their house.
Of course it was also convienent to the story that he was killed. Since he was the only one left that knew Claire was from the other side. Besides Howard and Quayle. Now that all those people are dead, Claire can stay hidden.
I just finished the season finale. Great ending to the a great first season of a great show. I'm hooked. The only bad part is the loonnnngggggg wait until the second season. I can't imagine that it will be before sometime next year.
Oh, well, the third season of The Expanse starts on SyFy in a week or two.
Has anyone heard who Starz is going to partner with to stream Counterpart? I know Black Sails streams on Hulu. That's the only other Starz series I'm familiar with.
Since Starz has their own Streaming App (i.e. Roku, but not Tivo). I suspect that it would be awhile before its on Hulu or any other platform.
Yes the person killed was one of Aldrich men in Housekeeping. Baldwin took out the rest of his group.
Claire was high end killer and was know for being able to kill. Quayle is a idiot who couldn’t even kill Claire. There is tension in the show between Clarie and Peter. He knows that she can kill him at any time and she is setting up a story with her mother that their marriage is troubled. So she could kill him when ever it is needed.
Except that her value to the Prime side is as the wife of someone high up in the management on the Alpha side. If she kills him, she loses a lot of her access and therefore her value.
She is the daughter of the director of diplomacy on the prime side.
Harry Lloyd Breaks Down the 'Counterpart' Finale and Teases Season 2
Writers room board for episode 110. Some names and action changed. Posted by Justin Marks.
Who did not even bother to phone him to let him know she was alright.
Meanwhile the value of a live Peter Quayle to the daughter has increased significantly, formerly he was merely an unknowing/unwitting intelligence source for the other side.
Now not only is he willing to work as an agent of influence for the other side in effect he has been promoted by Management / 4th Floor above Director of Strategy and his influence has increased.
(although I vaguely wonder if he has been promoted by our sides's version of Project Indigo for their own purposes)
I thought her father on the Prime side was dead? In the flu outbreak?
I was really surprised to see Aldrich go. I liked the charater.
Who fills the Pope spot? Do we know his second in command?
I was happy to see Pope go. I hated that character. Took him forever to get a sentence out.
She is the other of the daughter of the director of diplomacy on the alpha side.
We're Alpha; they're Prime.
Looking at the writers' room board, it appears that a couple of characters were renamed and one was dropped altogether.
Based on how the various storylines played out, it looks like Pope was originally named St. John and Aldrich was originally Chekhov. There was also a character named Ulrich who was working with Howard Alpha on the Prime side. I can't think of an equivalent character in the final product. Maybe they gave more of that role to Emily overall and didn't need Ulrich.
It's interesting that it appears the original plan was for Chekov/Aldrich's counterpart to be the one who's holding Howard Alpha at the end. Given the story Aldrich told about manipulating his counterpart and driving him crazy, I assume they'll end up going in a different direction there. I wonder if they shot a version of that scene with someone walking through the door or if it was always left open-ended?
It also looks like they had a pretty clear idea of where everything was headed with the two Howards and knew the big story bits, such as the crossing being closed, but changed quite a lot with how they got there, especially with regards to Management.
