Minority Report Recap 9/28/15 Season 1 Episode 2 “Mr. Nice Guy”
Last weeks season premiere of Minority Report, began with the ambitious, clever, yet young policewoman Lara Vega (Meagan Good) discover Dash (Stark Sands), and learn about his PreCog abilities.
Dash’s ability to see into the future, allows him to unfortunately see upcoming murders. What is fortunate though, is in the last episode Vega unexpectedly finds Dash and they team up to stop a major catastrophe from happening, the planned attack on Mayor candidate Peter Van Eyck’s (Andrew Stewart-Jones) wife, Olivia (Zoe Doyle) during the political rally.
Dash and Vega understand their work must be undercover from the police, who have no idea about Dash’s presence in Washington D.C. His siblings Arthur (Nick Zano) and Agatha (Laura Regan), will be interesting to follow especially after Agatha’s proclaimed vision of police discovering Dash and then taking them back into PreCrime as PreCogs.
For tonight, Dash and Vega team up again to find a killer who is currently down on love. Meanwhile, Dash continues to reach out to his siblings for help. More crime, mischief, and risky decisions are definitely in play for Minority Report episode 2, which airs at 9 pm EST on Fox.
The episode begins with a flashback of 2054, the last day of PreCrime. Wally talks with Peter Van Eyck as they oversea Agatha, Arthur, and Dash in the milk bath. Wally worries what will happen to them, as they’ve been forced in the milk bath all these years. Van Eyck is not worried at all. Wally says as a unit in the milk bath, Arthur sees the names of the victims, Agatha sees the long term future, and Dash gets the worst, seeing the actual murders.
In present 2065, D.C Dash is at a park. He plays chess but sees a vision of a woman dying by getting knifed by a man so he rushes to Wally. Vega in the meanwhile has finished a virtual training session with her partner, Blake who is still suspicious about Vega. He says federal agents are investigating her due to the deaths of Mason and his daughter. Blake wants to find out what really happened and if she had help defending herself, but Vega doesn’t say anything about Dash claiming she handled the situation on her own. Akeela, Vega’s investigative assistant and friend, also is suspicious of Dash.
