Episode Discussion (Rewatch): 1x11 & 1x12

Jan 18, 2015 01:56

1.11. The gang flee from a newly functional Militia helicopter. And realising their choices are limited, they decide to align with the rebels in their fight against Monroe's forces. Splitting off from the group, Rachel and Miles go in search of anti-air weaponry - seeking out John (Leland Orser), a former scientist colleague of Rachel's. While Charlie and Nora go to deliver the warning to the rebels. A skittish John informs Rachel that Randall has captured Grace. Meanwhile Charlie and the others arrive to find the word's out and the mood among the rebels is grim with Commander Ramsey no longer believing they can win. Stationed outside the rebel camp, Neville and Jason spot Charlie, causing an already unsettled Jason to refuse his father's order to call in an air strike.

1.12. While Miles and Nora decide to go in search of his old top officers, the ones who supported his assassination attempt on Monroe, starting with Jim Hudson. Rachel, Charlie and Aaron go to the rebels' Echo base, an old hospital. Back among the militia, Randall reveals that he can activate the pendants remotely to track them, and he and Monroe seal an uneasy alliance. With a militia escort, Randall manages to capture Rachel and he reveals that with her help, he intends to restore power, but only to a chosen few. Charlie rescues Rachel and they finally share an unguarded moment. Later, Aaron asks Rachel for the truth and she agrees to tell him everything, starting with a place called "The Tower".

The Liveblog
  • For those brave enough to want to liveblog this discussion - the Chatzy Virtual Room is here.
  • The Rewatch Clock is a countdown one, so no math necessary.

When the clock hits '0' press play and go from there. I'd recommend signing into the virtual room a few minutes early to situate yourself with the new environment. And you can say hi and prepare to sigh over the level of Marlie and Miloe in these episodes and everything will be great.

*Please Note: After episode 1.11 we will take a short 10-15 minute mental break...where you can check your emails and look after your children and eat something and get a drink refill and move... because you've been sitting still for 42 minutes, just flailing your fingers at your keyboard.


Liveblogging steps:

1. Follow the room link above to the 'Rewatch Discussion'.
2. Come up with a name/alias (maybe use your LJ username, or what we know you by, to keep it simple)
3. Choose a colour.
4. Type the password for the room. (This week's password is the name of the person who dies in 1.11, all lowercase letters -- it starts with a 'd')
5. Click 'enter room', and then click 'join chat' (it's at the bottom, on the right).


+ Good, you're here (we knew you couldn't resist), let's do this thing!

Mod Note.
During the Liveblog - Anyone can join in at any point. Mid way through ep 11, halfway through ep 12. Whenever you're free. We'll tell you where we're up to. Also, you can drop out whenever you want. If you just want to watch a few particular scenes, flail about it, and then leave, that's cool :D

And, I'd recommend coming back to this post afterwards, just as cool down to recap to your feels. Or come maybe back later in the week - you be as random as you feel is necessary. Especially you Newbies and lurkers out there -- we want to get to know you!

Previous Rewatches...


You do not have to liveblog to participate.
You don't have to watch the eps when the countdown clock tells you to.
This is a community activity to discuss Season One - things you noticed, things you didn't, things you like, things you don't etc....there's no pressure here :D
