Spiral - Season 4 - Meet the 'villains'

The main plot of season 4 of Spiral will focus on far-left extremists (ultra gauche) who are sort of anarchists, revolutionizers who want 'power to the people' and bring down our institutions.

The two main 'villains' of this season are Thomas Riffaut and Sophie Mazerat :

- Thomas (played by Jérôme Huguet) is part of a collective about the defense of sans-papiers (illegals), but his actions are driven more by his hatred of the institutions than by the fate of people immigrating illegally. He thinks the State is oppressive and liberticidal and he wallows in the destruction of its symbols. He will convince other members of the collective to work with him, who will radicalize after a violent confrontation with the police.

- Sophie (played by Judith Chemla) is a brilliant but discrete student who finds in Thomas a purpose to her life. Influenceable and in love, she follows him in his destructive path, cut ties with her past life and experiences semi-clandestinity. Under the pretend of political action, Sophie will gradually slip to violence and lose control.

On the first picture below, it reads "No cops in our districts / No mercy for the cops" - the pun on 'quartier' loses its meaning in English : that word means 'neighborhood' and it also is a part of the expression "pas de quartier", which means there won't even be pieces of, in this case, 'cops', to put back together after they're done with them. A 'quartier' also means a piece of an apple, orange, or other spherical fruits you can cut in equal portions, but that's not relevant in this particular context.

The second photograph is probably one of the extremists' stash. The red pennon on the right reads "L'État nous brise / Brisons l'État", that means "The State is shattering us / Let's shatter the State". The one on the left saying "Ça fait du bien par où ça casse" is a pun on the expression "Ça fait du bien par où ça passe" (literally "it feels good where it's going through", it means "That hits the spot" or "It feels good all over"), which you might say among friends during a meal if you were starving, or after sipping something fresh on a warm day. In this case, "passe" was replaced by "casse" (= break). It's not a real expression, "ça fait du bien par où ça casse" doesn't make sense grammatically, it's just meant to evoke the original one.

Season 4 premieres in exactly 2 weeks and 9 minutes, on September 3 at 8:55pm on Canal+, later on Netflix & BBC Four.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
