I’ve always thought that weddings were a waste of money. Like why spend that much money and have that much stress over a party. No thank you. If you want to marry me it’s a courthouse or a Las Vegas wedding chapel. Then again, I don’t believe in love, so thats a different talk.
Along with weddings, I don’t much appreciate being mind fucked, and one emotion that you will see when it happens from me is frustration. But there is something about The Endgame that makes me dive head first and go, I have no idea what’s happening or where this is going, but please keep playing with my brain.
The Endgame is one of those shows that has me on the edge of my seat, but also wondering what the fuck is happening and I ain’t made about it.
It’s time for Elena to tell another story. Woman really likes her stories, which I think we can all agree are annoying to a point. Sure, it gives us insight to who she is, but in the same breath, like not a fan of having to peel back to the layers.
We open with a look at the past – Elena and Sergei so deeply in love, happy in a field before their wedding. They are ready to commit their lives to each other legally, but they are definitely in love. The happiness that they exude is sweet, but gross for this cynic (I say out of bitterness and jealousy).
They hear bells and rush to make their wedding – which I have to laugh at. It’s cute. It’s endearing.
But what happens at their wedding is what starts to change everything in Elena’s life. Elena isn’t going to back down, I think we’ve all realized this. But I think we’ve also all realized that we have no idea what she’s up to.
Turner wants to know how Owen is involved in all of this, why Elena framed Owen. Elena doesn’t want to tell her, she wants to tell a story first.
The FBI has a photo of Rona, inside Bank #2. They don’t know her name, they don’t know where she is from, but they realize that she seems to be running everything. Doak wants to know everything that he can about her – but we all know that it’s not going to be that easy.
The FBI is getting a pin camera in there, they are done flying blind. Doaks asks Anthony what he is hearing from Ft. Totten and reminds him to check where his loyalties lie. If we’re being honest, my money is on Anthony having something to do with Elena.
Here’s why – he’s too close to Turner for there not to be a connection to Elena. While everyone else turned against her, including her husband. So yes, I trust no one.
The boss wants information, but Anthony is treading a line. And Washington is trying to keep public fear at a minimum, so they are ready to put out a press release that is a bunch of bullshit. Turner is the only one that is calling them out on it.
But complicated is what Secretary Bradbury’s life is about to get. See the story is about a mother and a child and this child is Bradbury’s. Yes, Elena warned her last time that she was the next one to go down.
Now, do I think that kids should ever be used? Nope. But Elena isn’t any of us. She’s also able to show Secretary Bradbury just how much she’s not playing. No surprise that the Secretary is pissed and rightfully so. Her son is strapped to a bomb in an unknown location.
Elena knows a thing or two about bombs, because her wedding was interrupted by a bomb. Hell, it was bombed. Her whole family died. Sergei’s Mom, who was the Queen, was murdered.
Elena knows so much about everything and it’s one of those things that I wonder how. How does one know so many secrets that can bring down the leaders of the world? I am positive that someone out there is like that, but seeing the possibility is scary.
Turner knows that something is up and the layers that she has peel back from Elena is painstaking. She doesn’t understand the end game, but the truth is no one does. I don’t think that anyone but Elena gets it. Not her lawyers, not her husband, no one.
Turner is on the hunt for Bradbury’s son and Anthony is helping her. Turner seems to always be able to figure out Elena and realizes that the car got out of the tunnel, escaping in the back of a truck. She had them find it, which led her to finding Bradbury’s son and then having to call the bomb squad in to get him free.
With Elena – she’s been saying that the story is about a mother and a child. Bradbury’s son can’t figure out what the clue would be for a password with him and his Mom, but Turner does figure it out.
The password is the man who killed her Mom. Bradbury’s son was being held across from the cemetery where her Mom is buried. This has become way too personal and she wants answers.
Meanwhile in the bank the manager is getting really sick. Lord, why were we not paying attention earlier. There is something really bad happening and every moment is a clue, but we’ve definitely missed something. The FBI negotiates his release, blowing the fact that they have eyes in there, but lets be real, they already knew that.
Turner knows, after another confrontation with Elena, that there are so many layers there. She has plans for Turner, she’s defined those plans for herself and believes that they have a lot in common. But Turner can’t see that. She sees someone who is fucking with her life, has set up her husband, and she had no idea why.
But that’s the mastermind that Elena is. She’s like the master of the mind fuck and gives no fucks that anyone is bothered by it. Part of me thinks that this has something to do with Turner’s parents, but I have to wonder then, was Isaac a person that in turn also hurt Elena?
There are so many things that I don’t get, but I’ve never wanted to figure it out more.
Turner is chasing down these layers and when she gets to Bank #2 and sees the EMT about to drive away, she pulls a gun and tells her to hand it over. The layers are there. And she is hoping for answers.
But the answers aren’t what you thin they will be.
See Rona had placed a patch on the manager, making him really ill. All to smuggle out a thumb drive. And what was on that drive? Well that would be Homeland Secretary Bradbury accepting money from a cartel and basically being like it’s $10MM a year or you go to jail. She thought that she was going to get away everything and knowing that she was getting caught, well, that was a lot for her.
She tried to be a manipulative bitch and get herself out of it, but no. No one is going to let her get away with it. Genuinely cheered when she got arrested.
But what I didn’t cheer over was Owen still being rude and distant with Turner. She deserves more. He’s hiding something. Everyone is hiding something.
What is it though?
- Elena wanting her own clothes – don’t blame her. Orange isn’t her color, as well as that blue dress would be a lot to wear for so long.
- Turner becoming paranoid over everything – I don’t blame her. I would be scared too.
- I don’t trust Doak either.
- Sec. Bradbury is a shady bitch.
- The fact that Elena has layers to everything, I am kinda impressed by, but also like scared of.
- I need to know what it is about the “Queen” and how it started.
- I also need to understand what the fuck happened with Elena after she killed the ppl who almost killed her.
- Why is Sergei in jail?
- Why the fuck has Owen been working with Elena and Sergei?
- My money is on the dude that killed Turner’s Mom still being alive.
- We can get down with the whole revenge is a dish best served cold mentality.
The Endgame airs Mondays on NBC.
