Through most of “No Tomorrow” as a series, the central premise has been the kooky theory by Xavier that the end of the world is on the horizon. We’ve taken the character (in some ways) seriously, but this particular belief was a little more challenging.
Now that we’ve said that, what happens when it suddenly seems that he may have been right all along? Next week’s finale “No Sleep ’till Reykjavik” is going to examine those possibilities, including whether or not there could be hope on the other side if the world is saved. There could be a lot of emotional moments that come out of this episode, but we’re not sure that the tone is going to change too dramatically from anything we’ve seen so far. The comedy aspect is one of the reasons why so many people out there enjoy this show to begin with since there are more then enough other options if you want to watch a show about the end of the world with a more serious tone.
Synopsis – “Xavier (Joshua Sasse) discovers his asteroid research has been validated, which changes everything. While an unknowing Evie (Tori Anderson) takes a solo journey to think about her future, Timothy (Jesse Rath) distracts himself with a different kind of trip, and the Cybermart gang endures Deirdre’s (Amy Pietz) harsh new rules.”
Now, the extra-difficult thing about this episode is that just as it could be the big finale for the world as Evie and Xavier know it, it’s also likely the last episode of the series. As many who’ve been following the ratings know at this point, the show is really struggling to maintain a cohesive 18-49 audience following “The Flash.” Even if the original plan was for there to only be 13 episodes in this first season (which is something that CW head Mark Pedowitz suggested while at the TCA Winter Press Tour recently), at the same exact time we’d be entering the finale with a lot more confidence in the show’s future in the event that the ratings were a little bit better.
While a season 2 is still possible in theory, you have to (much like some characters on this fittingly) prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
