Sense8, Ep. 1.07 to 1.12: Convoluted plot doesn’t overshadow emotion

In the second half of the season, the potency of the action choreography hasn’t dissipated, but the structure around it has grown even more complicated, lessening its effect.

“Make a difference” utters the dying man in Twilight Zone #12. The haunting words each echo in the mind without relenting once one reads it.

The force of one person to change the course of history is not a new action. No, it is an action which has occurred in the past, and even in the daily lives of others.

With all of these ideas expressed, let it be known I came into the comic at the finishing act of the arc.
