Review - Rubicon Season 1 Episode 10 In Whom We Trust

With only three episodes left in the season (and possibly series due to the low ratings), the various threads of Rubicon are coming together in a very satisfying fashion.

After being alone for the majority of screen time, Katherine finally meets Will and they exchange some information before the creep Donald Bloom threatens to kill both of them if they meet Still, Katherine sends Will the photo of all the kids who would become the world government (yeah, the notion is silly unless someone was directing them from birth). Will's investigation into Atlas McDowell brings him on the same path David was, but he's not letting up.

At API, things are moving as well, with the discovery that Kateb is still alive and coordinating attacks. What's more, those around him have been systematically eliminated, indicating he silenced them for a future attack. The air of conspiracy around Kateb leads me to believe that there could be a tie to the conspiracy. Whether there is an actual connection or just a parallel situation due to the global nature of the conspiracy, it's interesting stuff.

Maggie is the most problematic character of the show, working in another area and not involved in the conspiracy. The custody battle feels out of place, although we do see Kale actively protecting her. Unless she suddenly gets knowledgeable enough about the world or is revealed to be related to the conspiracy, it's hard imagining her ever doing something meaningful other than being Will's love interesting, whose current position is held by Andy.

Score: 8.8/10
