The Whispers 1×12 ‘Traveller In The Dark’: Wait, this wasn’t the finale?

What the hell am I supposed expect next week that will be more intense than the last 10 minutes of this episode? And in all honesty, I don’t think my heart can take much more. It was near beating out of my chest throughout this episode actually, and now I can’t believe that the character I literally despised last week has pretty much all my sympathy this week. What an episode.

Oh Minx. I know you were scared, but why do you need to be as stubborn as your father? You could have ended the whole getting carted away to get “neutralized” thing by just showing Claire that you couldn’t zap a person even if you tried.

But then again that wouldn’t be dramatic and heartbreaking, thus not making the best two scenes of the entire season.

Now we all know my feelings towards Wes’ decision making skills, and those haven’t changed, but I did feel awful for him throughout the episode, and I think Barry Sloane did some of his best acting tonight, especially with Kylie Rogers who plays Minx. They’ve always played well off of each other since the beginning, but when he was reciting “Twinkle, twinkle little star” and Minx couldn’t remember it, I nearly broke down. It was so sad and just really well acted.

Kylie is also amazingly talented on her own, and when she was getting rolled in to be “neutralized” singing the song she couldn’t remember before, I was crying even harder, and then she had to mention Lena.

And I was just done.

if anything though, Minx is still incredibly manipulative, so if I were her father, I would still totally watch out for that. And I wonder what favor she asked of Henry?

Oh, and I knew it was the president’s daughter, and besides for dramatic effect (again), I don’t know why it took so long for everyone to find that out. Like since the first or second episode, kids under Drill’s power were drawing pictures of the president. What better way for Drill to phone home than doing it in front of something that the entire universe could see?

I don’t know how Drill figured that a press conference was inevitable, but this show isn’t known for logical consistency, which still kind of angers me because it could be so much more than it already is if it didn’t do things just because they were dramatic or shocking. It doesn’t need to turn into a soap opera, and I honestly hope it doesn’t.

All in all this was a really strong episode, and I wonder how insanely intense the finale is going to be, and here’s hoping will get some actual answers to our multitude of questions.
