Within the current day of the “Wick” franchise, the varied comings and goings on the Continental lodge in New York happen with none interference from the surface world in any way. Whereas most audiences in all probability by no means even had this cross their thoughts, a number of the extra logic-obsessed viewers members on the market would possibly marvel how that is even doable in a metropolis with one of the crucial highly-funded police departments within the nation. Effectively, “The Continental” creators Greg Coolidge, Kirk Ward, and Shawn Simmons apparently discovered this query value answering of their prequel sequence.
Early on, we’re launched to a key subplot that can reverberate all through the episode (and the next two, as effectively). Detectives KD (Mishel Prada) and Mayhew (Jeremy Bobb) rapidly discover themselves caught up in a scenario much more difficult than their very own sexual historical past collectively. When an investigation into a neighborhood purchaser of contraband leads KD proper to the doorstep of the Continental itself, Mayhew recklessly breaks protocol to forestall his subordinate from bodily getting into the lodge grounds. His pressing warnings to her virtually drip with innuendo about what truly goes on contained in the secretive Flatiron Constructing, although he refuses to elaborate past the truth that they merely “…don’t have any authority there.”
Naturally, KD disregards these orders and marches straight into the Continental anyway afterward. Her inexperience is quickly obvious to the skilled killers throughout her, making her stick out like a sore thumb and placing her in peril like no different scene within the “Wick” franchise has ever completed to an outsider. Clearly, the native cops and possibly even civilians within the surrounding space (a protected assumption, given the our bodies that tend of falling onto the streets under) know one thing shady is occurring, however “The Continental” does not cease there.
