Because The A.V. Club knows that TV shows keep going even if we’re not writing at length about them, we’re experimenting with discussion posts. For certain shows, one of our TV writers will publish some brief thoughts about the latest episode, and open the comments for readers to share theirs.

  • Why don’t people get that every time Clementine goes somewhere, Abigail is going to get to her?
  • There are so many people at the IADG command, and yet, only our team seems to be doing anything. Everyone else is just reading off the boards everyone can clearly see: “Russia is down!” But even without the beacons, there are still tons of hybrids running around in Russia, right? “Send the Delta team!”
  • R.I.P. Logan. Almost thought you were going to be were going to be Clementine’s new paramour for a second.
  • I loved the IADG soldier paying homage to his fallen dog comrade, to show us that not all animals are bad! And then, the dog wakes up from the dead and attacks him, Cujo-style.
  • “You can stop worrying about me, and start worrying about the beacon.” Pretty sure this episode broke the world’s record for use of the word beacon.
  • One more though, because that beacon in St. Louis was hilarious, as was James Wolk’s marching against the pull of it. Tessa’s too. “How did people not notice this?”
  • So, what do you guys think the odds are that this show will return? Ending on a cliff-hanger seems like a ballsy move, with the show’s future so up in the air, but after all the efforts this season, this was an absolute downer. Abigail has the baby, the team all turns guns on each other, and Jackson, maybe not the smartest knife in the drawer, smashes the plane through the barrier. Now the hybrids can roam freely and infect all the existing animals in the world. Won’t that mean the extinction of mankind anyway, even without sterility? And when has Abigail ever actually not lied or cheated her way through a promise?
    If the show does come back, I predict that Abe will create some sort of anti-virus that will turn all the hybrids back to normal animals, since the hybrid virus now appears to be infectious. But I don’t know if I’m on board. Too many dark interior shots of that frickin’ plane and IADG headquarters, too many annoying characters (Abigail’s smug smirk is the worst), too few fun hybrids! When you’re looking to an invisible snake to liven things up, you know your show’s in trouble. Smashing a plane through the barrier might not be the worst way to go out.
  • And that’s a wrap on Zoo season three. Thanks for reading! Watch this space for Will & Grace next week.
