|S3: Ep.30 The Guardian has called
in his most trusted and ruthless Praetorian Troops. Their first job
is to recapture escaped prisoner Luke. Security at the Mall is stepped
up a notch or ten, and the fairly relaxed attitude towards the Mallrats
gives way to restricted areas and intense interrogation of random
bystanders for no reason.
Alice fears for the safety of everyone at the Mall and tells KC that
their top priority is to find a way of escape.
The next scene takes us to the rebel base, but in between a quick
succession of three buffer and cutaway shots:
The first reminds us we are in the City. Pointless, we already know
that. The second shows the same footage of a loudspeaker van that
we've seen so many times. Only the sound changes. This time it's an
announcement that the Praetorian troops are now in charge. I guess
that's so we know it's not just at the Mall. And then the bee-suit
MKI robes, footage taken from S2. Ep.6. If this is meant to show the
Praetorians storming through the City it's laughable. The Praetorians
have grid-iron face helmets.
|And so on to the rebel base where Ebony is
hitting on Pride watched by jealous May.
