Counterpart (season 2)

{5/5} “It’s just a precaution. It should never be used.”

Counterpart season 2, aired in 2018-19

The doors between the worlds are shut. In one world, Howard is in a small room with no windows. In the other, he is living with the other Howard’s wife — Emily has woken up from her coma but has lost some memory. Peter is tasked with finding out who the “others” are on his side, but his wife is one of them and he doesn’t want to reveal it. But now he has a new partner, Naya, who will undoubtedly figure it out eventually.

This is the last season. They wrapped up their storyline, although they would have continued the story to season 3 if they weren’t cancelled.

If you’re interested in some spy games, this is the show for you — it’s very well written. It’s about what happens when you realize you’ve been brainwashed, and trying to be a better version of yourself.

In one episode we see how things started when the 2 worlds split apart in the 1980s. In another, the conversation between the two Emilys is astonishing.

James Cromwell drops by in several episodes this season.

Stars Harry Lloyd, Betty Gabriel, and Richard Schiff.

I previously reviewed season 1.
