The Passage episode 4 preview: The worst-case scenario

As you look ahead to The Passage episode 4 on Fox next week, there is one word we would use to describe it: Sobering. It’s not exactly as though some of the people in the facility are doing great at present, but it feels as though things are going to only get worse. You’re going to see spreading influence, the spread of a disease, and also what mostly just feels like a battle to keep characters safe and stay afloat. Wolgast will take a pretty enormous risk, and you will see some characters team up with a common purpose.

The title for episode 4 is “Whose Blood is That?” — in the right context, this could actually be a pretty funny name for an hour of TV. In the wrong context, however, it’s pretty darn horrifying.

For some additional news as to what’s coming up, all you have to do is check out the official The Passage episode 4 synopsis:

In an attempt to protect Amy, Wolgast convinces Sykes and Lear to let them outside of the facility for exercise. As emotional flashbacks reveal Carter’s life leading up to his death-row sentencing, Fanning’s hold on those kept inside Project Noah grows stronger. Meanwhile, the virals gain power over the facility’s staff, leading Richards and Wolgast to reunite so they can take down a rogue soldier in the all-new “Whose Blood is That?” episode of THE PASSAGE airing Monday, Feb. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (PSG-104) (TV-14 L, S, V)

Your weekly ratings update

This is something that we’ll be providing throughout the remainder of this season for The Passage, largely because it was put into such a fascinating spot from the jump. It was not necessarily put into a position to generate great ratings as a midseason entry and up against the one-two punch of America’s Got Talent: The Champions and The Bachelor.

Yet, the show is still doing what it can in order to stay afloat, and that includes having a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic on this past episode. If it can keep that up the rest of the season, then maybe the adaptation is going to have a chance to actually stick around for the rest of the season! However, there are also reasons to worry since we’re so early in the season — and it’s not like Fox has all that much when it comes to available real estate right now. This is a situation worth watching for the rest of the season.
