I’m probably the most excited I’ve been about a premiere than I have been in a while… Season two of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan premiered overnight last night, and I can’t wait to watch. The overall season one story of Mousa bin Suleiman, his wife Hanin, and their children is done. No returning for them. (If you remember, he was an up-and-coming terrorist, and even though his motives might have been good – providing good lives for his family and fellow Muslims – the way he went about it wasn’t good, and his wife was planning on taking their kids and running. She did, but the oldest – their son – sided with and stayed with his father. Jack Ryan (and more on that awesomeness in a minute) ended up taking Suleiman down at the hospital, where the plan had been to set off a dirty bomb while the POTUS was there. There was almost an issue with Cathy’s (Jack’s love interest, the daughter of his former boss) safety, but Jack saved her just in time.
We can’t forget Grier, either. He’d been demoted after his actions in Karachi, and he and Jack didn’t have a great start. But what started out as a very contentious relationship between Jack and his new boss turned into a great working relationship, and when he was reassigned to Moscow at the end of the season, this time because of his good work throughout the Suleiman problem, he decided to take Jack along with him.
Jack… Oh, Jack Ryan. After the first season wrapped, I went and watched all of the Jack Ryan movies, and I gotta say, I like the show better. I mean, I liked some of the movies more than others too, but I absolutely loved John Krasinski in the role. He’s much younger than the movie actors (since this is the origin story, duh…but still…), and that is more interesting for me. And Krasinski, who was most notably known for his role in the comedy The Office, plays the dramatic role like he was born for it. I can’t wait to see how he does in season two!
Don’t miss the complete season two out on Amazon now!
I’ll also be watching The Great British Baking Show finale, American Housewife, CMT’s Nashville Squares, Hawaii Five-0, & Blue Bloods.
