Sense8 season 2, episode 8, “All I Want Right Now is One More Bullet”
– Synopsis
– Jonas lives! (Someone saw this coming)
– We’d have to be crazy to 100% trust Jonas, especially since his life is tied to Whispers now.
– Capheus gets a visit from an old adversary who holds him at gunpoint.
– Lito visits everyone in his misery and depression.
– Sun reminds him of everything he has to be grateful for, and Lito reminds her that it’s okay to have a good cry now and again.
– Lito’s career may be in flux after being let go by his agent, but he definitely has a path ahead if he wants to take it.
– Sun is hiding at a “love hotel” in Seoul. Cash only, easy to stay hidden.
– Sun’s brother is going to host the gala, and she’s going to hide in plain sight as a bartender thanks to Lito’s flashy skills.
– We’re a little frustrated with Kala’s storyline. She’s cheating on him, and the show is making Rajan awful to make her seem less awful.
– Will is just kind of tagging along with everyone else in this episode as he considers dipping back into the heroin. Kala helps him resist.
– Whispers talk time.
– Riley and Diego are on the hunt for the academic. Will chimes in as necessary.
– Nomi is down for the count thanks to a pair of troublesome heels, so Bug/Amanita facetime Riley/Diego and it’s nice to see Amanita get some connection to another of the sensates.
– Lila’s shadiness comes to a head in this episode as she pulls Wolfgang into a trap (that he’s well aware he’s walking into).
– The newbies aren’t really invested in Lila’s story.
– It was really cool to see all the sensates reacting to Wolfgang and Lila’s fight.
– Favorite Scenes
– Favorite Lines

Listener Feedback:
– An email from a listener regarding Kala’s importance (and a link to an important article).
– A second email brings up some Capheus inconsistencies and addresses some of our Angelica concerns.
