The Entertainment of the Upper Class
14 February 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Laurens Bancroft invites Kovacs to participate in a dinner party at his home since all the suspects of his murder will be there. Kristin Ortega is also invited by the millionaire. Kovacs hires Vernon to watch his back at Bancroft´s house, promising that Poe will heal Lizzie. During the party, they learn how the futile upper class is entertained.

"In a Lonely Place" is an episode where nothing happens, a sort of filler disclosing the entertainment of the upper class in this dystopic futuristic society. This is the type of absolutely forgettable episode. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "In a Lonely Place"
