Moments Easily Missed – A Stray Tear

Today we’re taking a closer look at episode 1×09 “Tomorrow” and another beautiful and subtle moment between Cole and Jones. The very first ‘Moment Easily Missed’ I posted featured a scene between the two of them from earlier on, i.e. episode 1×06. They were only just testing the waters of what starts out as a kind of co-dependency and coalesces into a quasi-friendship, which we can see slowly developing as they keep working together.

Here in episode 1×09, the aftershock of the virus slowly corrodes what is left of Cole’s hope that what they’re doing will have a positive outcome. He just watched helplessly as Cassie died in his arms in 2017, only for the tether to pull him back when he is trying to grieve for a life lost that is as dear to him as any past life can be.

At the same time (well, not literally), Jones has all but given up on them being able to pull Cole back from Chechnya. But when the machine comes back on to have him materialize in the chair, she runs up the stairs to greet him. Her relief is more than tangible.

1x09 I Lost HerThis may only be recognizable if you watch the episode in high definition, but did you see that a tear slides from Katarina’s left eye as she welcomes Cole back? Did you notice that she calls him by his first name, James? And last but not least, the soft stroke of his cheek when he tells her he lost Cassie all over again. It’s become a lot more than co-dependency or a mission for them. There’s an affection, a bond, perhaps something akin to a mother-son relationship, and it’s an absolute pleasure to watch.
