Way too many hallucinations/flashbacks.


Good god man, can we please kill this trend and burn it with fire?

reply

Yes it did get tedious especially in the second half of the series. I just skipped through some of the scenes.

reply

Agreed, just too much.

It's the trauma and tumah affecting his brain functions so he's getting lots of flashbacks of his bros and family. He's going through the PTSD where RD-4895 was suppose to prevent but didn't.

reply

An interesting point, actually. The drug didn't just give him the tumor. It really did not work.

reply

I had the same thoughts while watching the show. Got annoying actually.

reply

Yeah, we get it that Reece misses his wife and daughter immensely, esp. after the thirtieth flashback and daydream.
Hopefully, they'll chill out on doing this so much in Season 2 if there is one.

Agreed. At least with Bourne, as far as I recall, the streaky, jumbled flashbacks contained clues that the viewer would try to piece together. They were also clipped/quick. Narratively, this is more compelling when the premise assassin-with-amnesia. We want to find out what happened. These flashbacks were one-note: I-love-and-miss-my-dead-wife-and-daughter. We already know that; instead we want to know who else is involved in the conspiracy and how they're going down.
