Nadia is dead.
We saw her buried.
There is no reason for anyone to fake her death.
Look, I think there is a 95% chance that she is dead. But we didn't see her buried, we saw a funeral with a closed casket being lowered into the ground. There could have been dead cats in there for all we know.
As for the reason, we have not been shown a reason...yet.
And we do know that you can learn something about a person by talking to their counterpart. There are many other reasons the writers could come up with for Nadia being alive and hidden. Of all the people on the show, Nadia is the most like Howard in that the Prime counterpart is almost a polar opposite of the Alpha. So a mirror journey for Nadia/Baldwin to that of the Howards can be very interesting.
I call this "Lost Syndrome." Where somebody thinks that because they can conceive of something, it's a possibility within the story, regardless of whether it makes a lick of sense.
With this theory, Anubys is becoming the poster child for Lost Syndrome.
We didn't see Aldrich get buried, maybe he didn't die.
(Although I really wish they didn't kill him)
I think that we did not see them die. We saw them get shot, we saw them dying, but we didn't see them die.
I don't think this is the first time in the history of television that we saw someone get shot, assume they were dead, and then the writers brought them back for whatever reason...sometimes for no other reason than they liked the actor!
Hell, we thought the guy on the border in no man's land was dead at the end of the second to last episode and he lasted about halfway through the next episode. They could've easily taken him to the hospital where he survives a 20 hour operation and live.
It's been known to happen!
How do you know the guy on the border is dead?
Maybe the 'other side' only said he was
He's dead, Jim.
Perhaps there’s a third universe where he’s still alive.
Maybe the 4th floor is a 3rd universe….
I think she is dead - but if she was still alive there would have been a good case to put her in Witness Protection to save her from the still alive Baldwin.
And although she doesn't realize exactly what happened she became involved in what some of the dark forces have described as the biggest secret of all time - all the more reason for some of the dark forces to keep her under observation and discourage/prevent her from resuming her normal life.
(and when it comes to British 1960s style spy drama a Funeral in Berlin does not mean somebody is dead)
Season 1 is available on Blu-ray.
Counterpart S2 - Sunday, December 9 at 9/8c on Starz.
Can I assume same release date for Prime?
This also gives insight into Starz’ plans for American Gods. Chances are it premiers in this same time slot in late February after Counterpart concludes.
Last season starz made their shows available at 12Am on the day they aired from the Starz app. So I was able to watch them early in the morning, even they they weren't broadcast on cable until 8 or 9PM.
I hope they do the same thing this year.
Showtime is doing that with Shameless this season. Not sure the exact time but it has been there when I wake up at 6am.
Just re-watched this on Blu-ray, re-reading this thread as I went. It was kind of fun to see the speculation and complaints, most of which turned out to be unwarranted.
One that does still bug me is the seeming lack of security on the border crossing, that allows people to get through without being traced. Which led me to a bizarre thought, which I think is almost certainly without merit, but which seems...kinda cool.
Alpha seems like basically a bunch of bureaucratic morons. My theory has always been that Prime developed the flu as a weapon (they are the more biologically advanced, after all); that it got out in their world by accident; and that they blamed Alpha. But what if Alpha is actually highly competent and effective? What if they really did use the flu against Prime (maybe not as an attack but just as an experiment)? And what if they have much tighter border control than we've seen; that they know exactly who's been crossing and have been completely on top of things?
In other words, just as Prime has a secret faction (the School), what if Alpha has a secret faction who have been behind pretty much everything we've seen so far?
As I said, almost certainly wrong. But...it amused me when it popped into my head.
One thing that occurred to me very strongly, however, and that I think might actually be true, is that Management is...Management. Not Managements. I.e., when both sides are talking to Management in the conference rooms, they're talking to the same people.
Thanks for the reminder!
S2 Next Week 12/09 at 9pm!
STARZ Encore re-running S1 starting tomorrow. STARZ re-running S1 next Sunday starting at 9:30am leading up to S2 premier at 9pm
It's also on the Starz app. That's how I'm rewatching.
