‘Zoo’ season 2, episode 4 review: The fear of death

Zoo -

Going into Tuesday night’s new episode of “Zoo,” there were certainly some fears that the show could be losing a character. The promos suggested such.

However, we still wanted to believe that this was a huge fake-out. Maybe to a certain extent, we’re still hoping that it is and the show is not about to throw someone like Chloe to the wayside given how much we enjoy having her around. Also, we know that there are plenty of fans of her and Jackson out there.

If there is one hopeful thing that we can say at present, it is this: We still think there is hope. Typically the rule with network TV and major characters is that unless they’re buried in the ground, there is still a way. We want to think that Jackson, Abe, or someone else is going to be able to lend her a helping hand.

Typically in these reviews we go on some sort of rant about how ridiculous this-or-that is when it comes to the animals, and how we really enjoy it almost in spite of itself. Yet, that doesn’t really seem as appropriate here given the circumstances. Our favorite moment of the show tonight may have just been seeing so many of the characters get dressed up almost as if they were a part of an “Ocean’s Eleven” movie. Also, it must have been nice to have to pretend that they weren’t somewhere other than Vancouver.

In the end, we probably had the smallest amount of fun with this episode out of any this season, but we also probably were the most captivated by it. It’s an interesting trade-off, and there’s nothing like threatening to kill off a character to get people nervous / invested in what’s next. Grade: B.
