THE BRIDGE: "JUBILEX" REVIEW

Hey, guys. Fowler here, stepping in to review the Season 2 finale of FX's The Bridge. Some background. I did not review The Bridge for IGN during Season 1. I also did not really enjoy Season 1. At least not the "serial killer revenge" plot which took up the bulk of the time. And yes, I know that the series was mirroring the events from the Danish-Swedish show it's based on. But watching Marco, a character we hardly knew at that point, both ruin his own marriage via a random adulterous moment  and then  have his life ruined by a horror movie-style psycho made for a jumbled, unsatisfying show.

The Bridge Season 2 Review “Jubilex”

“The whole thing is a bullshit game!” The Bridge  closed out its immensely satisfying 2nd season with an episode that brought closure to one couple while leaving mostly everything else up in the air. It makes me extremely happy that Linder survived his shooting and got to reconcile with Eva. That was the one moment of relief I felt while watching “Jubilex.” Because for every moment of victory our heroes obtained, a shroud of uncertainty and instability surrounded it. Yes, Fausto was brought in by Marco, but his incarceration looks like it will be extremely problematic. Sonya finally caught Eleanor, but killed the ex-Mennonite’s father in the process on Juarez soil. Alex Buckley will take the fall as a rogue agent while the CIA will no doubt continue their process in some other form. Frye and Adriana will continue their work, but Buckley definitely planted those seeds of doubt into Frye’s head about his partner. Adriana still also doesn’t have a definite answer on her sister’s disappearance. And the son of a bitch Robles fled the station without his badge. As the camera zoomed out on Sonya, Marco, and Eleanor, the grand scheme of things came into my brain. And in that, Sonya and Marco are just a small piece of an insanely large ever-changing puzzle. There will always be blood; always be bullshit games. But each little victory is always important. And each moment shared by people like Linder and Eva all the more poignant.

The Bridge Season 2 Review “Quetzalcoatl”

It’s annoying to hear the bad side utter those words (as Eleanor did last week), but it’s plain disheartening to hear the good side say it as well. One could argue that Hank is jaded in the same way that Eleanor is crazy. He’s witnessed a lot of senseless crap no doubt, and eventually it becomes easier to just let it happen.  The Bridge  showcased yet again though how you can’t just sit on your ass and watch. As I mentioned last week with my  Battlestar Galactica  quote, you have to fight them until you can’t. What becomes the trick is choosing the right battles.

The Bridge Season 2 Review “Beholder”

“There will always be blood. You can’t change that.” In essence, that line from Eleanor to Sonya is what  The Bridge  boils down to. It’s what Marco mentioned to Sonya previously about how even if Galvan is removed, someone new will take his place. Eva may have received asylum courtesy of Steven Linder, but girls will always disappear in Ciudad Juarez. Frye and Adriana’s work will never be done. More men like DEA Joe will die and women like Charlotte Millwright will be collateral damage. And yet, people like Sonya, Marco, Linder, Frye, Adriana, and Hank will always be there, and in the words of Kara Thrace from  Battlestar Galactica  “fight them until we can’t.” Read More... //www.tvequals.com/2014/09/18/bridge-season-2-review-beholder/
