The Bridge - Episode 1.08 - Vendetta - Advance Review

      After suffering a seizure in the last episode, Daniel Frye has returned from the assumed dead! The opening scene of this week's episode of The Bridge sees a 6 years younger and pantless Daniel Frye back in his partying years. In case you missed the montage of him throwing out his drugs a few episodes back, let's just say if he was doing Heinsenberg's "Blue Sky" from Breaking Bad, Frye's detox period would stall business enough to make Lydia's head explode.

     Following a rather strange opening scene with a "high as a kite" Daniel Frye, we return to see Marco and Sonya celebrating a win… well Marco at least. Sonya is convinced that their suspect is just a pawn in the game. She sees him as crazy and is simply unwilling to believe that someone that committed these rather ingenious (and also psychotic) acts of murder. She runs across a name that she wants to look into: David Tate. In a rather predictable response, the rest of the department declares her "a village idiot savant" and refuses to follow her lead. She need not worry though as she would seem to have a newfound friend in Marco's son.

     There is a major development in this episode in regards to the man behind all of this. I think everyone knows that El Paso PD hasn't reached the top of psycho list, but unless if you've seen the original series, you're probably not going to see this one coming. I'm honestly very happy with the road this story line has taken now.

     In a story line that is slowly heating up, Charlotte is becoming increasingly displeased with the man who was supposed to solve it all, Ray. As seen in the last episode, Ray has called in a friend to start running guns through the tunnel to Mexico. Charlotte knows this friend (Don Swayze) of Ray's and he is clearly no friend of hers. Ray has bigger fish to fry than Charlotte and Tim though, since Graciela finds a major surprise in the first shipment of guns. If I had to guess, I would say that Charlotte is going to have to get involved again.

     While this is probably the shortest review I've written for The Bridge yet, there isn't a lot to tease without plainly giving it away. Just remember… David Tate.

     Overall, this episode ends up delivering, but just takes a while to get there. A lot of the suspense that this show had before sizzled out in the last episode. Based on the last few scenes though, "David Tate" is going to throw the group a curveball and I'm sure the last few episodes of this season of The Bridge will live up to the first set.

Rating: 8.9/10

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.
