12 Monkeys - The Night Room - Advance Preview



12 Monkeys, “The Night Room,” was written by Richard Robbins and directed by David Boyd. Robbins has also written for Rubicon and Scandal, so he knows how to write intrigue. Boyd’s credits include The Walking Dead, Sleepy Hollow, and Revolution. This episode is another nail biter, and this one takes place primarily in 2015.

As the title suggests the night room is going to play a big part in the episode. We learn that the night room even has evening stars. It also has a super-security vault that contains a pretty shocking secret. There is at least one scene that a lot of people will have to turn away from their television screens for.

Jones (Barbara Sukowa) thinks she’s discovered the source of the time jumps being off, yet time travel remains highly unreliable. In 2043, the team grows closer in surprising ways. Max (Romina D’Ugo) reveals that the scavengers tell stories about the inhabitants of the compound – such as Jones.  When Ramse (Kirk Acevedo) goes looking for answers, he finds more than he bargained for.

Jennifer (Emily Hampshire) is incredibly entertaining in this episode – and Hampshire is outstanding playing her. Cassie (Amanda Schull) is back in the thick of things but also re-thinking things. While one mystery is solved, more take it’s place, and there is a pretty cool timeloop.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the episode – in no particular order and you’ll have to guess who said them! (some of them should be easy!)


“I’m from the apocalypse. Everything looks weird to me.”
“You can’t save everyone.”
“All you got is blood on your hands.”
“Who’s this bitch?”
“It matters what we do here.”
“He’s a flytrap, and you’re just a fly.”

Don’t forget to watch "The Night Room," on Friday, January 13 at 9pm on Syfy!
