ReWatchable Episode #274: 'Sense8' 1x04 -- Sorry About Your Country
Join ReWatchable as we continue our journey into Sense8 1×04 “What’s Going On?”
Superfans: Danielle and Karen
Newbies: Kristen and Natalie
Kristen is getting ready to say goodbye to Originals this week and Karen started watching Wynonna Earp. Weirdly enough, Natalie’s fun fact has to do with both of these shows and how much she hates them! Danielle has been practicing for THREE DAYS to do this intro.
Sense8 season 1, episode 4, “What’s Going On?”
-Here’s Mitch’s synopsis:
In this episode,
Twenty-five years and Sun’s life is still
Trying to get her brother to swallow a hard pill,
For some retribution
Will realized quickly when before him stood
A Nomi that needed some saving, and he could,
So they, broke out of the institution
And so Riley cries sometimes
When she’s on the rooftop, just to get it all out,
What’s in her head,
And ipod nano touches, are a little peculiar
And so Kala wakes in the morning
And she steps outside,
And she takes a deep breath, and she gets real high
From the smoke in Wolfgang’s lungs
What’s going on?
And Neets tries, oh my god does she try
To break her Nomi out, of this institution
And Lito prays, oh my god does he pray,
He prays every single day
For a end to this threesome,
And they sang “heyyyyyy heyyyyyy heyy heyhey,
heyyyyyy heyyyyy hey.”
They sang “hey,
what’s going on?”
Twenty-five years and Capheus is still,
Trying to get his poor sick mother some hope,
For some restitution…
