And where did we leave off -- Lex was just arrested for trying to jump the fence, Jana, Pregnoteen, Xander, Jake et al had just successfully fought off a gang of meth-head tweakers, Jana had decrypted the video files from the hospital security footage, Jana and crew had decided to leave the cordon, the National Guard had taken over security outside the cordon and created a 100 ft. buffer zone, Jake was still in love with Katie the teacher (even though she is terrible at watching the kids she is responsible for), and Thomas (one of Katie's former) declares that he "doesn't get sick",  It was day 9 -- 4 days before everything went to shit on Day 13.

Ooooh, the anticipation.  What shenanigans will these guys get up to next ?

Quote of the week is from -- Leonard Cohen.  So what, first the virus will take Atlanta, then it will take Berlin.  Unfortunately, the quote is from Leonard Cohen's "Anthem" and it's about how there is a crack in everything (highlighted in red, no less) and that's how the light gets in.  Sure, whatever.

And we have skipped Day 10 and gone straight to Day 11 -- I wonder if Claudia Black is going to show in this episode or her character will continue her offscreen adventures doing who knows what.

We begin with the good doctor doing more research on the rats when one of the rats bites one of the researchers -- seriously, have these clowns never dealt with rats in a lab setting ?  And Larry the tech is just a tad concerned that he's got the virus -- and Larry has every right to be concerned because the rat broke the skin.  Oh noooeeeees !!!!

Meanwhile, as Larry gets escorted to quarantine, we get to see Quentin and Thomas (Mr. "I don't get sick") playing Go Fish through the glass.  How does Go Fish work if you can't exchange cards or play from a common deck.  Did the writers think about that ?  Though it does look like they are playing with separate decks, but still that doesn't really work.

Lex gets interrogated by his boss after getting arrested while trying to jump the fence, and he's all distraught because Jana might be dead after that phone call he got.  And the police chief makes some snide comment about Lex's father so Lex must have some daddy issues.  And Lex gets suspended until further notice -- that's all ??  Tries to violate a quarantine and he just gets suspended.

Dr. Victor has a video call with his mentor/whatever -- and he gives Victor a really shitty pep talk, but Victor is convinced Thomas is immune after a couple of days of tests -- umm, has he tried exposing Thomas to the virus and see what happens, because until that happens I'm not convinced.  And then mentor/whatever says he needs to call his sister in Rockville -- which just seems odd.

Jake is back at the hospital with Katie who her uses her made hacker skillz to access a computer (because the password was 'password') and she reviews the video security footage with Jake, convinced that the first doctor that died infected Sayid and not the other way round.  And they discover that the doctor that died first was having regularly scheduled quickies (all of 15 minutes long) with her boyfriend/significant other at 5am. And the doctor's boyfriend, after crashing for nearly 3 hours after the quickie comes out and looks at himself in the mirror of a washing station (that has clearly marked cupboards for soap and water -- who keeps water in a cupboard).

And the video is super detailed and covers nearly everywhere inside the hospital, and Katie is able to switch between all feeds in sync with each other (ummm, that's not how that works). And the boyfriend stashes his wallet in a bin in a hallway after talking on the phone before returning to the sexytime closet but before posting a quarantine sign on the maintenance closet door. Oh the conspiracy grows -- who is this guy ?

That was quick, we are now up to Day 12 already.  And Claudia Black's character, Dr. Lommers, is back, and she's having an argument with some underling when Lex shows up to beg for assistance finding Jana.  But after Dr. Lommers says she will reinstate Lex's clearance to get updates we get introduced to the underling as Dr. David McIntyre from Georgetown, who just happens to be they guy that Victor was talking to on the video conference.  And he is Dr. Lommers' husband -- talk about your 2 degrees of separation.

Meanwhile, inside the cordon (and the word 'inside' is highlight in red for some reason), Bartertown is forming and CDC personnel are loading up bodies in a pickup truck.  Funny thing, they keep showing that logo -- the half filled red circle with the slash through it, but they never show anyone actually painting it.

Jana, Suzy and a couple of redshirts arrive at a church -- what the hell have they been doing for two days since the tweaker attack that happened on Day 9 ?  Wandering the streets of the cordon doing what exactly ?  Lots of people at the church sound sick so our motley crew heads up to a mezzanine, but the preacher isn't even wearing a mask -- is he also immune like Thomas ?  And where are Pregnoteen and Xander ?  

Jake meets Lex in the cargo container hallway -- and tells Lex that Jana is safe and saved them from the tweakers, except Jake hasn't seen Jana in 2 days.  How would he even know that she's safe ?  Jake tosses the video footage to Lex -- again, with no sanitary precautions whatsoever -- and gets a breakdown of what Katie found.

As Katie goes to collect Quentin for lunch, Dr. Victor shows up and opens Thomas' quarantine door because it has been 48 hours since Thomas was exposed, and Larry the lab tech was bitten by a rat that was given Thomas' blood.  This seems like a huge break in standard protocols -- Thomas could be immune, but he could still be a carrier like Typhoid Mary.  But nope, Thomas was infected but he is super super special and his blood contains the blueprint for the cure.  Based on the preview of Day 13 I don't think that turns out to be the case.  I guess that gets Pregnoteen off the hook for having the baby with the cure.

We return from commercial as a man posts a sign to a fence that reads: "Need a place to wash my cloths.  Will pay in MREs Please write a message Where I Can ! Thank You"

The reason Team Jana is in this church is that there is a tunnel from the days of the Confederacy that goes under the cordon wall that they know about from when she was a kid, but apparently her friend Suzy has claustrophobia so there might be an issue in a confining tunnel.

Lex and the reporter do some investigating and it turns out the real patient Zero, this Henry Burns guy that was banging the doctor, has a PhD in microbiology and a post-doc in infectious diseases -- that seems convenient.  Reporter has a hacker friend to dig up dirt as Lex gets a text on his phone from the police.

Jake and Katie continue not to wear masks ... anywhere ... and discuss what they will do after the cordon comes down.

Turns out Lex was paged by Dr. Lommers -- to coordinate a mission to sneak Thomas out of the cordon. And they are going to cut a new door in another container away from prying eyes.  And Dr. Lommers puts Lex in charge of the operation in charge of the National Guard assigned to the task.  Jake coordinates this with Jake in 'the sluice' -- how that container hallway got that name I have no idea.

Jake discusses the plan to extract Thomas with Katie. And Katie decides she's breaking up with him now -- the preemptive "it's not you, it's me".

The old rat-wrangler comes home and tells his wife in the wheelchair that it is time to celebrate because the Doctor has had a breakthrough.  As the wife rolls down the hallway she tries to stand and grab a box on a high shelf -- unsuccessfully, of course -- and as the rat-wrangler finds her in the floor he see that she has a large gash on her leg.  Why in the hell was she trying to stand and get this box in the first place, other than ..... plot !!

Lex gets into his pickup and Leo the reporter jumps into deliver some evidence that Burns got a delivery from the CDC 2 days before the outbreak, but they don't know what it was -- and he wants Lex to use his connections to find out what it was.  Lex tells Leo he has more important things to do and will circle back to this new evidence later.  Leo is a little pissy about this.

Meanwhile, Team Jana is trying to break through a wall in the (now) deserted church -- and no one notices.  I would think that during this time of crisis the church would have people there 24x7.

Lex calls Leo the reporter moments later and somehow has information that the shipment from the CDC to Burns was paid for by Dr. Victor Cannerts -- the doctor at ground zero for the virus outbreak.  Coincidence much ?  Lex gets to the super secret site where they are cutting the new hole in the cordon ablaze with lights and soldiers and an incredibly noisy saw cutting the hole in the containers -- so much for the secret portion of this "secret mission".

Katie explains to Thomas that they will be going to leave the cordon, as Jake looks on all dirty and sweaty.  She tells Katie that much like Thomas's favorite superhero, Superman, Thomas also has a superpower.

Jake confronts Katie that he would never leave her and her complicated life outside the cordon -- does she remember way back on Day One about his little tantrum about missing the Braves game and selfish/cowardly behavior ?  Apparently not because Katie gets all weepy.  And they aren't even standing four to six feet away from each other.  And Jake completely forgets that Katie goes a little whacky when she is off her meds.  It must be twu wuv.

Dr. Cannerts decides to call his sister.  No one cares, it's just filler.  Because he can't be an evil doctor if he calls his sister just to say he is ok, can he ?

Bertie the Rat-wrangler comforts his wife on the couch.  Jake finishes the incinerations for the day and hops in the shower.  Team Jana are still trying to break through this wall in the church (and no one has bothered to stop them).  Katie joins Jake in the shower -- because you can't have sexytime by staying four to six feet away from each other, and as they caress each other through the shower curtain (effectively the world's biggest condom)

This is it -- Day 13.  When everything goes to shit based on the preview from the premiere episode.

Team Jana has been digging all night in this church -- and no one has come to check on the noise.  Was Day 12 a Sunday ?  And they have made some progress to open up the tunnel entrance.  Suzy's claustrophobia starts to kick in -- even though she isn't even in the tunnel yet. I'm sure that will be important later.  Jana gives he a little pep talk and off they go into the tunnel -- I can't wait until this tunnel collapses on them.

Bertie decides to go to the hospital for help, since his wife's leg gash is not healing, even though it has only been a day.

Jana and Suzy follow the tunnel -- Suzy's claustrophobia has completely vanished --  and they discover bones, but have no idea where the 2 guys are that preceded them until they turn the corner and find them passed out on the tunnel floor.  Jana instantly assumes it's gas and they try to pull the guys back to the tunnel entrance.  But since Jana and Suzy are standing right there how come they aren't affected by the gas.

Lex gives last minute instructions to the police and National Guard about Thomas' extraction.  Dr. Lommers shows up because it's a big day and she goes into the container to greet Thomas -- like this is going to work out.

Bertie does a walk and talk with Dr. Victor after receiving new antibiotics and gauze for his wife's wound, as other doctors are milling around celebrating with champagne with Larry the lab tech -- except Larry starts to cough and spews blood all over two of the other researchers. Methinks the virus doesn't like cheap champagne.  Big surprise -- Thomas is a Typhoid Mary.  Seriously, have these doctors never thought about this concept before.  And they need to stop the transfer of Thomas -- that would suck if Dr. Lommers got infected.

Jana and Suzy are hanging around the tunnel entrance as the two guys wake up, and decide to go back to Bitscan, but one of the guys decides to strike out on his own to find his own way back to his family (outside the cordon).

Jake and Katie wheel Thomas (hiding in a body bag) to the "secret" transfer point -- as Thomas jumps out to enter the new backdoor in the cordon, Katie reminds him about his superpower (the power to kill millions).  Lex and Dr. Lommers are the only ones inside the container with Thomas.  After some uplifting comments by Lex and Dr. Lommers, Maj. Scott breaks in and forces Thomas back in side the cordon.  Finally other people notice the whole in the wall and start to approach.  Lex and Dr. Lommers are put in quarantine since they have been exposed to Thomas -- because Lex touched Thomas and Dr. Lommers.

Dr. Victor shows up to retrieve Thomas and make sure no one touches him.

Leo the reporter leaves Lex a message saying that he found evidence in Dr. Victor's apartment that Victor created the virus.

A crowd starts to gather at the base of the cordon wall where the door is, and the soldiers look worried.  Dr. Lommers sounds worried about all the banging on the cordon wall.

What the heck happened to pregnant chick and her boyfriend? That was the one thing I kept thinking about over and over as the episode aired.

I laughed when the guy started hemorrhaging blood all over the place.

That was probably wrong.

I liked the dress Claudia Black wore early in the episode. . . and that's about it.

So, Jana is kind of a terrible person.  First, she decides that her building is no longer safe to stay in, so she takes all of the able-bodied adults with her and apparently just abandons a newborn and two teenagers (one of whom just barely gave birth) to fend for themselves in a building that is (for some reason) a prime target for all of the crazy people who inhabit this section of the cordon.  (Maybe the kids went somewhere else, but we saw no indication of that, and there doesn't seem to be a good place they could have gone.)  Then, she wrecks the front wall of a church in order to escape through a tunnel, leaving an obvious gaping hole for all of the infected people -- infected people she knows are coming to this church -- to also leave the cordon and infect the rest of humanity.  She seems to have absolutely no concerns about the fact that her actions, if successful, would have almost certainly caused the deaths of thousands if not millions of people.  This isn't some sort of theoretical exercise in putting the lives of the many over the lives of the few -- she's intentionally doing something that she has to know is jeopardizing the rest of humanity in order to increase her odds of survival and make her living conditions temporarily more pleasant, and she doesn't care at all.  That basically makes her an irredeemable character in my book.

(Also, if there was a wall in front of the tunnel, how did she and her annoying friend get into the tunnel in the first place, back when they were teenagers?  Did the church install a solid brick wall to close off the tunnel/catacomb afterwards?  If so, why weren't they surprised to see the wall, since it wouldn't have been there the last time they used the tunnel?  And, when they were teenagers, how did they get into a tunnel in the very front of the church during church services without anyone noticing?  This tunnel makes no sense to me.)

It really was the least sexiest thing on TV, and did they finally ditch the shower curtain -- because anything involving body fluid transfer is probably not a good idea at this point.

And since this episode ended on the morning of Day 13, and the preview in the first episode was during daylight hours on Day 13 things must really go to hell quickly in the next 12 hours or so.  Here's what we know from that preview:

  • The National Guard soldiers that invade the cordon actually have a clock that says 4:59pm, so they move in at exactly 5pm from 'the sluice' that Lex and Jake have been meeting in all along -- and for some reason some soldiers have gas masks, but most just have a clear plastic shield (a la Jake) without even surgical masks under the shield. You would think they would be better prepared for this.
  • The soldiers enter the cordon from 'the sluice"  -- which is far away from where the riot near the backdoor access point is occurring at the end of this episode -- near what looks like a food distribution point where a riot is in progress.
  • Pregnoteen is still pregnant and falls to the ground screaming for help.
  • A meth-head tweaker rides up on a motorcycle while wearing a skull mask -- but weren't all the tweakers killed at Bitscan, and that's why Team Jana was able to safely escape from the building and go to the church.
  • Bertie the rat-wrangler is seen running with a box of MREs, and he is attacked and the MREs are stolen from him
  • A woman cries hysterically nearby a burning body.
  • CDC workers are casually tossing body bags onto a wooden palette.  So with a riot going on all around them these CDC workers continue on with their job like it's just a normal day inside the cordon.
  • With numerous people running around (a lot without masks on), one infected man lurches very slowly towards a young girl and a soldier shoots him in the back of the head -- even though the now dead infected man is a good 20 feet from the young girl.  How did the solider even know this guy was infected -- because the dude was facing away from the soldier ?  I guess that means he just shot a random guy in the back of the head, and he shot through a crowd of people rushing around to do it.  So why was the young girl screaming ?  She could have just got up and ran away at the slow place this infected was moving.  In fact other people who may have been infected have plenty of time to run in between the young girl and the now dead infected dude -- and they didn't get shot.  WTF ?
  • Katie shows up with an infected girl in her arms screaming for help -- she isn't wearing a mask, even though she has been shown to at least have a surgical mask around her neck 24x7 since the outbreak (well, except for creepy shower curtain sexytime), and she has blood dripping from a wound at her right temple, and a wound on her left knee.  And for some reason Katie is wearing a skirt except she has been wearing pants nearly all the time in the first 12 days inside the cordon.  Did she have a job interview today ?  When Katie and Jake drop off Thomas at the "secret" cordon back door, Katie is wearing pants, a jacket that zips up to her neck over 2 shirts, gloves, a scarf, her trade mark surgical mask dangling around her neck and toting a shoulderbag.  So when did she get changed into more professional attire in the next 12 hours ?  Here's the even more bizarre part -- the outfit Katie is wearing during the riot isn't even the outfit she was wearing on Day One when they were at the hospital.  So where did Katie get these new, albeit impractical for a virus outbreak, clothes on Day 13 ?
  • As the soldiers close the door to "the sluice" a man holds up a sign reading "Behold the day of the lord cometh" -- apparently he had time to make this sign before the riot at the food distribution.  And will that be from the quote of the final episode ?
  • Thomas is no where to be seen.  Quentin is no where to be seen. So obviously Katie completely shirked her responsibility of watching over the kids in her care, and she was already at a hospital which would have been the best place to get, you know, help.  She is so terrible at her job.
  • None of the rioters are staying four to six feet away from each other.
  • The gang that took over Pregnoteen's mom's store is no where to be seen.  
  • Xander is nowhere to be seen, otherwise why was Pregnoteen picking up food at the distribution point ?  You would think Xander would be doing this instead.
  • Since Lex and Dr. Lommers are going to be quarantined inside that container for the next 48 hours, I guess they get to sit out the riot.
  • Jake is no where to be seen during the food riot.  Team Jana is no where to be seen during the food riot.
     

And there's a couple of plot threads that have been completely dropped from the first episode:

  • Pregnoteen's grandma is Bertie the rat wrangler's wife.  At absolutely no point in the remainder of the episodes has Bertie shown any concern for his wife's daughter or pregnant granddaughter. In fact Bertie's wife also shows no sign for concern for them either, even though she probably definitely knows that her daughter's store is inside the cordon.
  • The bus driver that was also quarantined with Katie and kids seems to have up and disappeared like a fart in the wind along with Brittany the girl with hay fever.
  • If the kids on the bus were quarantined, how come none of the senior citizens in the hospital that they were singing to have been seen anywhere in the hospital for the past 12 days.  Because they also should have been quarantined since the hospital was quarantined.

That shower scene, tho.  No way I'd be putting my face and mouth all over that wet shower curtain.  The germs.  The germs!  Surely the two of them standing like 10 feet apart, watching each other shower would have been sexier, no?

Still not getting this I've know you less than two weeks, but I love you and want you in my life forever thing that Jake has going on with Katie.  Too bad Jana is dating Jake's friend, because Jana is a much better character, and I would have preferred her with Jake.  Oh well.

I used to read a comic called the Legion of Super-heroes as a kid, and it had a character called Infectious Lass, who had exactly the superpower Thomas has! He's Infectious Lad! That was a pretty interesting twist, but, then again, during his whole time in quarantine no one checked for that?

I'm guessing again that the conspiracy behind Patient Zero is that WE are our own worst enemy and we somehow created the virus and let it loose and then blamed it on some immigrant family. Also, now that Claudia Black is quarantined and we find that she has a doctor spouse, HE will be the one behind it and will tearfully admit it to her.

  I guessed a while back that it's Katie and whatever she's taking medicinally that is the actual link to a cure. Since she and Jake haven't come down with anything, despite repeated contact with Thomas, I'm thinking that's probably still in play. (Though they might both be vaccinated by plot.)

Yes!  That would be a huge improvement.  That is actually a good solution to their predicament.  I was thinking I would just take my chance with the virus over that ridiculous scene.  There is no way I would french kiss a shower curtain unless it was brand spanking new.  Shower curtains are covered in soap scum and mildew and god knows what!  And it was a PUBLIC shower!  Ugh.  That was one of the most what the fuck moments on TV for me, ever.  Both for the grossness and the cheesiness.  I can't even remember what happened in the rest of the episode after that mess except the failed tunnel escape.  Oh, and the extreme incompetence of that doctor with the virus and Thomas.  If Thomas is a carrier and spreader of the virus, say good-bye to that group of kids he was playing with.  I wonder why they haven't named the virus?  Did anybody else catch a name?

My daughter was like germs gross, why did they not touch hands that would have been sweet. Then when they kissed she said so is he gonna wrap her up in the curtain, suffocate her and get rid of the body. It was ridiculous. And yes Jake falls in love faster than a preteen it's so stupid!

You're in a public shower. That shower is in a hospital. That hospital is in a quarantine zone. That quarantine zone is ground zero for the outbreak of a easily transmitted virus that has killed everyone it has infected. Would you seriously french the shower curtain that is likely covered in scum and germs, just hoping no one infected had ever gone into that shower?

That is officially the stupidest scene from this entire show. I can't believe I gave this show another shot.

Maybe they figure that any infected people who have used the shower have died already.  As we've learned from Jake's part-time crematorium job, the virus can survive outside of its host so long as the host is still alive, but as soon as the host dies, the virus can magically sense the death and is thoughtful enough to die too, even though this makes no sense from a scientific standpoint.

And it seriously did look like Jake was going to suffocate Katie with that shower curtain, as he pulled it close around her head and held it there.  Yeah, nothing says romance like suffocation by public shower curtain.

Well, I'd love to snark with you all, but I just went to watch my recording and it wasn't there.  I just discovered that KTLA has dropped CW.  Which is a station that has a few shows that I watch.   Not that I'll miss Containment, but I do enjoy your posts and was interested to see just how ridiculous it could get.

I'm sorry to hear that, I hate when channel's just get dropped. You can watch CW shows on its website, if you don't do Amazon or Netflix.

Oh, Containment.  What the hell was that, man?  That shower scene was the worst.  Jake and Katie are the worst (well, Jake is tolerable enough when he's with anyone else.  It's really Katie that's the worst.)  If you really had to find some dumb way to sex those two up, but not having them touch skin, just steal one of the many ways Pushing Daises did that better with Ned and Chuck.  Fucking hell, Containment.

So, of course, the kid would end up still being contagious, and they would just prevent things from getting even worse.  But I'm guessing Lex and Lommers being stuck in a makeshift quarantine now, is just an excuse to have the next episode mainly be them locked in a room together.  No doubt bickering and hating each other.  Whatever.

The whole thing with the church was a waste of time, apparently.  Well, at least it got rid of Dennis.  But were they just going to leave Teresa and her boyfriend? 

Sounds like it was the CDC that started this entire thing, after-all.  I'm sure this show will find some way to make that twist boring and stupid.

Shower curtain sex was... disturbing.  Would have been better off if one of them had got a roll of cling-film and wrapped themselves up from top to toe!

When they said that Thomas's body contained the solution to the infection, I pictured some government agency tossing him into a huge juicer, to extract as much "solution" as possible.  Everyone was very happy with the idea of handing him over to the CDC.  Anybody think to ask for a receipt?  To give to his family, I mean.  Just in case the CDC have a huge juicer...

The shower curtin thing - W.T.F. was that.  Sooo nasty.  Were they actually pushing their tongues against that thing??  Yes, I know body parts but the tongue thing really grossed me out.

This is basically a soap opera with a disease back drop.  And a bad one at that.

Everyone is dumb, and hardly anyone acts like a normal person would and they basically overreact to everything.

Plus, the exaggerated deterioration of society...children walking around after a couple of days like waifs in an Oliver Twist remake.  Gangs taking over with no resistance from anyone, even the cops.  People starving after a couple of days.

When most of us go to the grocery store, it's too replenish, not to fill the cupboards.  I bet I could get weeks of meals out of the just normal food I have. 

Is there a worse show on TV?

What cops? You mean the huge number of police they would have sent in to cordon off the hospital the minute a disease this virulent broke out. Cops that would have been left in the cordon to keep the peace and ensure quarantine procedures? Those cops? Or the 11 that are actually there, half of which have had hissy fits and stormed off to die somewhere.
