The Mysterious Box
12 January 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Ephraim Goodweather tries to hold the four survivors quarantine but politics changes the big picture of the event with fake news. The 206 corpses vanish from the morgue and Nora and he believe the military are the responsible. Setrakian is in jail and receives the visit of an old enemy, Eldritch Palmer, who hires a Latin gangster to bring the mysterious box to the other side of New York in a CDC van. Who is helping him?

"The Box" keeps the great level of the pilot with the introduction of new characters but with the normal running time for a show (abt. 42 min.). The Van Helsing-like Abraham Setrakian seems to be the most promising character of this good series. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Caixa" ("The Box")
