The Cape – Episode 1-9 Review

For the time being, “Razer” is the last episode of The Cape. NBC reduced the order from 13 to 10 episodes, and the The Event is coming back next week to finish off the final 12 episodes of the season. The Cape still has one episode left, but the date has not been set, if we’ll even see it air.

“Razer” brings back Scales and his band of goons for a pretty mediocre ride. Vince goes undercover, pretending to be the mysterious Razer, yet another uber-criminal no one has seen. We learn that Max has ulterior motives for helping Vince, which calls into question exactly how much Max cares for Vince outside of his immediate abilities. In any case, it’s a mutually beneficial relationship for now, as Max saves him in the end.

Peter Flemming is kind of crazy, what with Chess being separate yet controllable. Those weird Chess eyes, on the other hand, contacts ready to go all the time? Does the latest Orwell problem have anything to do with the door? It’s not like I care (and I actually wanted to know what was up with Happy Town), but it could be good information to know some time.

After the cold open of Dana and Trip, they don’t show up for the rest of the episode. Hurray!

Score: 8.2/10
