12 Monkeys is filled with moments between or beyond the dialogue—often the moments easily missed. I’d like to share a few of them with you so that we can fully appreciate them.
Today we’re taking a closer look at Elliot Jones and Ramse in 1×13 “Arms of Mine”. Obviously, Ramse (or should I say Seki?) is very important to Elliot, presumably he paid a large sum of money for his opportunity to use the time travel machine that has funded some of Elliot’s research. A lot hinges on the success of their first face-to-face meeting.
Elliot is clearly nervous. And then Ramse and his henchmen enter the room, and Elliot rushes towards them, hand outstretched in anticipation of the usual greeting.
Watch Ramse here. He breezes right past the fidgety Elliot. He has no time or patience for pleasantries. The years in the Japanese jail and Olivia’s influence have clearly jaded him. Who is this man that José Ramse has become?
