Moving into Reverie episode 2, one of the most exciting things about the series is that you’ve got a show that, at its core, has almost unlimited imagination. It can take its main characters down a number of different paths that are all interesting — no two characters are going to simulate their dream virtual reality the same way.
With next week’s “Bond. Jane Bond.”, that will be very much apparent in the form of a different client, a woman who fashions herself into an action hero during her own Reverie — that’s a little bit different than the romantic proposal fantasy pieced together by the client in the pilot. This is someone who is going to clearly challenge Mara in some different ways as she works to figure out how to get through to this woman — given that they may be a little more high-octane within this reverie, we have a feeling that this is not going to be an altogether easy mission for her.
Below, the Reverie episode 2 synopsis gives you a little bit more of a sense as to precisely what is coming up:
When a client becomes addicted to a “Jane Bond” adventure, Mara (Sarah Shahi) must help her assemble the missing pieces in her life to save her. At the same time, Mara deals with the unanticipated side effects of Reverie. Dennis Haysbert, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Kathryn Morris and Jessica Lu also star.
In speaking more about the “unanticipated side effects” of being in these simulations, it seems like we saw some of that in the reemergence of Mara’s niece in the closing minutes of the pilot. Was that a temporary hallucination or something so much deeper? Consider this to be one of the more interesting questions that the show is going to have to answer. Hopefully, they will and from there, even more interesting mysteries will start to unspool.
