When it comes to the character of Jackson on “Zoo,” there have been questions for weeks about his condition and his endgame. Well, on Tuesday night’s new episode of the series, we started getting closer to finally having a few answers …
Ultimately, Jackson’s rogue mission led him to a phone conversation with General Davies, one where he demanded a chance in order to speak to Robert Oz and get to the bottom of everything. Eventually, he offered himself up to Davies’ men unarmed, ready to turn himself in. As for whether or not he actually gets to meet him, that’s an entirely different story given the end of tonight’s episode where we saw the order handed down to kill Jackson before he even entered the compound. Even though Robert escaped Davies’ clutches, they didn’t see the need to keep him alive for leverage.
Well, here’s the big twist: Robert found his son before he could even enter! Everyone’s alive … for now.
In other news, Dariela’s pregnant! We know there were some fan theories out there about this already, and we’re a little torn on the twist just because it was a tad predictable. Then again, trying to raise a child in this world could prove interesting given there is so much chaos at every turn.
If there is one easily-identifiable problem with Tuesday’s episode, it is this: The story was a tad too confusing for what “Zoo” is. If one of the primary appeals of the series is that it allows you an opportunity to turn your brain off, then the show really should try to play into that even more than they do. The beginning and the end tonight were solid, but things became a little bit of a muddled mess in the middle. Grade: B-.
