Mitch: “Delavenne was not at Reiden because it was bring your shady Interpol agent to the office day.”
“Murmuration” is the August 25 episode of “Zoo.” Warning: this article does contain spoilers. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. “Zoo” airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. CT on CBS.
Well, things went south for our team rather quickly. Reiden has decided to take out the team, the FBI has issued warrants for Chloe and Jamie, and the team lost their sponsor. It’s a dark time.
Being on the run could add a level of intrigue and suspense to the show. Sure, being chased by a lion is exciting, but so are burner phones and undercover hats and sunglasses. The only issue would be if the criminal aspect, so to speak, takes away from mystery solving part of the show.
The focus of the episode was clearing their names and avoiding capture. There wasn’t any more research done or a breakthrough that happened. We witnessed Abe take down some birds with a firehouse, but that was really it until Mitch’s breakthrough that was inspired by a stuffed animal.
For this one episode, it was okay that the focus wasn’t on the animals. It made sense that the team’s priority would be to clear their names and get the truth out there. After Jamie’s journalist buddy fell through, shouldn’t the team have just made a youtube channel and made Abe the spokesperson for their cause? Come on, if you were going to watch an informative video of what’s going on, wouldn’t you want Abe to be the one telling you everything?
Reiden Global hired the team to uncover what was going on with the animals, so either they are stupid and didn’t know it would trace back to them, or they wanted it to trace back to them so the team would maybe recover the mother cell. This doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Why do you think Reiden did this?
Mitch came clean to the team about how he was going to trade the mother cell for Clem’s drugs. It was a little annoying how no one seemed to understand. Clearly none of them have kids, but you would think that they could at least see why Mitch would do it for something that would save his daughter’s life.
They were all focused on the betrayal. Yes, Mitch did betray them and potentially set back them finding a cure, but he wanted to save his daughter’s life. There should have at least been an acknowledgement that they could understand why Mitch did what he did.
