Episode Summary

The Art of War
A mission to deliver explosives to Earth Resistance lands Bronski and Takagi in Alaska, where they meet up with the Chicago resistance. They must place the explosives on a train so that the base to which it is going will be destroyed. But when they discover some of the cars carry many of the world's greatest art creations, Hanley hesitates. So they steal the cars with the art, plant the explosives in the particle accelerator, and get the empty cars destroyed so the Neos will stop looking for them. The rest of the train makes it to Great Slave Lake in Canada, where it explodes the next day.moreless

  • Runaway Train

    This is another episode I really like, I'll admit I have a knack sometimes for constant motion action. This episode is sort of similar to action films like "Runaway Train", "Sourcerer", and "Speed" which all had to do with the protagonists in moving vehicles and forced to go at constant motion and they can't afford to make a mistake, one mistake is fatal.

    Other than the good suspenseful action, I felt what really made the episode stood out is the chemestry between Eve Hanley and Wolf Bronsky. To me both of them are my second favorate couple in the show. Wolf was always the most unlikely person you would think would get a girl, and you would never think a person like Eve would have an attraction to him but as a saying goes opposites attract. I did like the interaction between the two both are different, Eve is a character that seems out of Wolf's legue she's beautiful (may'be even slightly younger than Wolf I'm not sure about the age range) and an intelectual which Wolf isn't (or so it seems). But there is some similarity, like one little moment we see Eve asks for a cholate bar and Wolf is happy to give her one. So just like him even she likes choclate. And what I love is I really can emphasize with the romance with the two, Wolf is an underdog that probably thought at first no way she would be interested in me but he gave it a shot and he hit. And girls like Eve don't want to love/like guys solely on looks alone but actually what their are inside which is what's the most important.

    I really love we do see Wolf exercise intelegence, her really is a smart guy. Some have mistaked him for being not so bright, but no he is just reckless sometimes thats all. We see him actually using his experence he use to have driving trains that his dad taught him as well has come up with a plan to preserve the art and destroy the Neo base.

    But most of all I love his reason for it and that was to simply make Eve happy. He knows she is fond of art and how important it is to her and like any good boyfriend he does whatever is in his ability to make her happy. And we see in the end not just did Wolf save the art but won Eve's heart as well.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Hanley: But you don't even care about the art!
      Bronsky: But you do. That's good enough for me.
      Hanley: I don't know what you mean.
      Bronsky: I think you do.

    • Takagi: Hanley, let me take your frame and go with him. Saving this guy is kind of a hobby with me. (referring to Bronsky)

    • Hanley: Where's the explosives expert?
      Takagi: Van Owen didn't make it.
      Bronsky: He was trying to get the detonator, but it got him first.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Bronsky uses the word "philistine" which has different meanings but in this case, he probably meant the derogatory term used to call a person someone who despises or does not understand the value of art, beauty, or intellectual values. So for the context, it fits.

    • This is the episode where you get to see a little chemistry between Wolf Bronsky and commander of Chicago resistance forces Eve Hanley.


    • Title The Art of War is an allusion to the famous writings of an ancient Chinese general Sun Tzu (also known as Sunzi or Sun Wu), which is considered to this day to be essential basic knowledge on military strategies, pro sports team play and business success.
