We're set up well for a full season of signs and revelations.
12 Monkeys is back, and yes, it's as trippy and twisty as ever.
Though Season 2 started simple when held up against the rest of Season 1, it's best we consider this a welcome back episode rather than of an indication of things to come.
The TV show does it all with a sense of bravado that allows you to overlook any internal logic issues.
Every episode includes some moment of such sweeping grandeur and philosophical heft that I remember, instantly, why I do ultimately love this series, flaws and all.
Audience Reviews for 12 Monkeys: Season 2
Mind-blowing and action-packed, Season 2 of 12 Monkeys changes the direction of the series. After seizing the time machine in 2043 the 12 Monkeys send several Messengers into the past to end time itself, and it's up to Cole and Railly to track them down and stop them. The show changes up a lot of the character dynamics; with Railly turning into a hardcore resistance fighter after having been stuck in the future, Cole teaming up with Ramse in the past, and Jennifer being turned against the 12 Monkeys (becoming a rogue). And the performances are a lot better for this, giving the actors more to do; especially Emily Hampshire as Jennifer, who breaks out and becomes the most charismatic and interesting character of the series. The writing too is extremely impressive; particularly in how it develops a mythos for time and ties together the various factions (showing them interconnecting throughout time). Also, Madeleine Stowe, star of the original film, makes a guest appearance in the season finale and gives an incredible performance. Extraordinarily riveting and full of adventure, Season 2 of 12 Monkeys is a transformative season that takes the series to a new level.
