At this rate, we’ll probably see at least the first 20 minutes of Syfy’s new 12 Monkeys series before it has it’s proper debut this Friday. Over the last few days the cable network has gradually been revealing the pilot in bits and pieces, starting with that nine-minute chunk. There will be five in total, and now we’ve got number four for your perusal.
As usual, this picks up where the last left off. In this case, James Cole (Aaron Stanford) wakes up three days after Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schall) patches him up, and after he’s had some crazy-ass fever dream, flashback-style hallucinations. Losing lots of blood and getting sewn up without anesthetic will do that to you. I also feel like someone at the fancy hotel they’re at would have called the cops after a crazy, ranting, blood-covered homeless man stumbled into their establishment, but maybe it’s the kind of place where the guests get all the leeway they want or need.
