Pantheon – Season 1 Episode 5 “Zero Daze” Recap & Review
Episode 5 from Pantheon Season 1 is where the whole thing starts to unravel in the middle. David’s time is a finite resource and he is unable to stop blinking out. He’s apparently been found and Maddie must escape in time before the situation gets out of hand. Someone has shut down the servers And of course, that is a result of Logarithms. They’ve taken control of Aeterna.
But, they aren’t under the control of Cary and Caspian. Caspian shows up to visit Hannah and demands to know the relationship between her and Renee. After having seen them at the mall in the last episode Caspian appears to be a man in a state of possessiveness and finally gets an answer from Renee.
Hannah is revealing she is Rachel who is an actor who was enlisted to play the part of Candle Street, which is a Shell Company name. She was offered $1 million to cover her mouth and to play Caspian’s role as part of the “social experiment.” It is revealed that Rachel’s mother suffers from cancer, and she’s made this decision in order to cover the cost of the treatment.
Caspian will not speak about her role in the incident… however, only if she follows what he tells her. Hannah (Rachel) is able to play her part very well, making it appear that her visit with Caspian was a normal, run-of-the-mill get-together that didn’t have anything unusual happening.
Caspian is listening to the phone call with Renee all the time and realizes, in a state of despair that his mother is deep. He also discovers that Cary is a rogue and is shocked to discover the fact that Cary’s “father” isn’t the sadistic victim he was led to believe.
A few days later, Renee proposes to Caspian to head for the coast and escape for a trip to Santa Barbara. It’s, of course, it’s a scam, however, Caspian is a part of the same. While on the way, Caspian notices Renee has taken her gun “in case they find Cary.” Naturally, when Renee is stopped at the petrol station Caspian puts aside all pretenses and takes over the vehicle leaving her safe and dry.
In the meantime, Maddie communicates with David while the two meet in the virtual world to review what they’ve found to date. It appears Logorhythms have brand new tracking algorithms implemented and are not revealing their track and don’t have any upload of files to their main office showing the surgical procedure or the horrendous experiments they’re running.
Maddie instantly thinks outside the box and brings up an undiscovered location, specifically the country of Norway in which Logorhythms are in operation.
David employs his expertise in technology to hack Pope’s satellite phone and download echolocation to gain a better understanding of the service. It’s basically a gigantic server point, however, David decides to deplete Pope’s battery completely remotely in order to determine where the charging point is.
Utilizing the phone’s vibration feature, David moves it across the desk to the closed laptop, which eventually grants Laurie an access point to download the project’s documents.
It seems that this is doing what it says, giving Laurie David and Laurie David access to the mainframe on the laptop, as well as the files inside. When they start digging through the files, they find another computer inside – Vinod Chandra.
As the project files are being transferred, Pope is informed of the hack, but it appears that he’s aware. Actually, he’s working along with Waxman who is monitoring the hack on his laptop. They decide to collaborate to trace the point of origin back to the place where Maddie is. They create a team and set off for their destination. Their cover is destroyed… but is that really the case?
The team of Waxman’s shows up in the incorrect location and confirms David’s trick as Pope finally realizes that his phone was hacked.
While all this is happening, David finds the project documents on Caspian and Caspian, who may be able to fix the weaknesses in the system based on his genius. In the case of Caspian when he gets home, he comes to discover Cary in the kitchen, ready to discuss. He acknowledges that Caspian was derived from Stephen’s DNA and is Stephen’s perfect clone one created to inherit Stephen’s legacy. Holstrom didn’t upload his data since he realized that the system was not fully developed at the time.
When Caspian goes away, he discovers Renee in the waiting room. She continues to play the prank but Cary is able to break it down completely, confessing that the family has been told everything. Renee is able to shoot Cary but before he’s able to bleed, Caspian takes off with Cary in the vehicle.
The Episode Review
This is why the real Caspian’s nature and the reason he’s so significant is exposed in the dramatic finale of the episode. There’s plenty to love about this chapter, and it keeps delivering thrilling science fiction drama. Certain ideas are definitely within the realm of possibilities as to where the world is headed in the future. Meanwhile, the main revelation of Caspian is an interesting way to highlight exactly why his role is crucial to the entire story.
In reality, the storyline of Caspian has been, to date at least, a lot more compelling, while Maddie appears to be a passenger to a lot of the events going on at the moment. However, there’s plenty to love about this episode, and the next episode’s set to be a dramatic episode too.
