What I’m Watching: The Bridge

The Bridge: Season 2, Episode 12 “Quetzalcoatl” (B+)

Things aren’t looking particularly good for Marco at this point, especially considering how quickly Galvan’s demands were met by a man who supposedly wasn’t going to negotiate him. It’s so interesting to watch Marco interact with Galvan, pleading for his fellow prisoner to be given medical attention and then expressing unsurprised dismay at Galvan’s order to have the man shot. At least it appears that Marco and Sebastian’s daughter will be used as bargaining chips for Galvan to get out and may actually survive this whole thing. It’s a relief that Robles wasn’t around when Steven stopped by, but his world is collapsing too with the rape charge filed and his career set to be stopped dead in its tracks. You have to hand it to Hank for being so eager to leap out of his hospital bed to help Sonya decode the ledger, and it looks like Eleanor is only one step ahead of them at this point. It’s always a blast to see Hank and Sonya interact with Daniel and Adriana, particularly Hank expressing a definitive lack of patience for Daniel’s antics and his squirrely nature. With just one episode to go this season, I do hope that this show will be renewed for a third outing since I think that this season has done a marvelous job of making the conflicts internal after the first season was focused much more on an individual killer unrelated to the law on either side of the border. It’s sure to be an intense hour next week either way.
