Salvation season 2 episode 2 review: Battle for the Presidency

Salvation season 2 episode 2Going into Salvation season 2 episode 2, there was more that we knew about the state of the series. Harris was a part of a group trying to determine one way or another how to deal with the massive asteroid threat. Meanwhile, Darius had a plan of his own to take it out via rail gun — something that he was more inclined to do with him being Vice-President.

Yet, any sort of tension that was present with Darius back in Washington vanquished when he and Grace got out into the field as he worked to try to execute his vision overseas. Grace was there to help with diplomacy, but what the two did not expect was such a resistance that his life was put on the line. As a matter of fact, were it not for a bulletproof shirt there’s a good chance the guy would be dead right now.

Once Darius recovered, the team was able to refocus slightly on the matter at hand: Trying to figure out another way in order to stop the asteroid. Because of the makeup of said asteroid, many of the initial ideas that were suggested simply would not be able to work. With that, we saw the team quickly move in a different direction and towards some different ideas. While there are possible ideas related to a particle accelerator nothing seems secure right now.

A big part of what makes Salvation a compelling show is figuring out where everyone stands, and in the midst of all of the political intrigue and drama, it seems as though there is going to be a battle for the Presidency. What does mean? Basically, that it’s going to be even harder for Darius and the current regime to keep their footing. As if there was enough to worry about, there is now the threat of war that could cause the entire country to collapse. With this level of unrest, it’s also likely that nobody else is going to be anywhere near as interested in working with America to stop the larger mission at hand.

Meanwhile, Grace found herself in a rather-unfortunate place at the end of the episode herself, learning that Claire’s brother is investigating her disappearance.

CarterMatt Verdict

Salvation does still suffer, at least somewhat, from having too many things going on at the same time. Yet, we do think overall that this is a very entertaining show that is trying to bring a lot to the table. We just hope that by the end of the season, the Presidency drama is over just so that there can be a unified focus on making sure, once and for all, humanity is saved.
