All About Ramses!
25 April 2015 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the eleventh episode of the first season of 12 Monkeys. This is a very intriguing episode because it centers its focus on Ramses, instead of Cole. We actually learn a few surprising elements about Ramses, so this is an episode to behold. Nonetheless, the friendship between the two are altered and it's interesting to see where the course of the relationship is heading.

In this episode, "Shonin," Cole follows Ramses to 1987 Tokyo where they find Leland Goines trying to buy the remains of a corpse which is the source of the virus. There is also where Ramses mortally wounds Cole, which gives Ramses a prison sentence. In prison, he comes in contact with a mysterious person named Olivia. When released in 1995, Ramses finally gets to meet Olivia.

Overall, this was an excellent episode. It has tons of action and lots of characterization. There is even a surprising twist, which adds a lot more to the upcoming episodes I would presume.
