Episode 4 brings another enticing chapter by exploring Sheldon’s journey in 1929 and delving deep into Chloe’s issues with the family — the series is doing well to bring a story that goes beyond just being superheroes.
This recap of Netflix’s Jupiter’s Legacy season 1, episode 4, “All the Devils Are Here,” contains major spoilers.
As you can tell by now, Jupiter’s Legacy season 1 brings character-centric chapters while keeping the main story arc maintained, and episode 4 brings the audience Chloe, who is more interesting than her brother Brandon, due to her rebellious ways.
Episode 4 opens with Chloe enjoying a rave late into the night. A man named Nick talks to her on the dance floor; he knows who she is. Janna then runs up to her and hugs Chloe — she invites her to her table, but Chloe clearly does not want to be involved. Chloe and Nick join the table anyway — Nick tells Chloe that they should drink all of Janna’s s**t and then leave without chipping in. Janna and the group are superheroes. Chloe takes drugs, but Janna warns them all, asking what they do if Blackstar turns up. Tensions rise, and Chloe and Sierra end up facing off with each other. As Sierra uses her powers on Chloe, Nick freezes time — he’s the “Nick of Time.”
The “Nick of Time” is so cheesy, and Chloe’s face says it all — it’s not a good name.
1929 — needing directions
In 1929, Sheldon walks along dusty roads, and he comes across a couple trying to repair their car. The husband fears Sheldon, but he insists that he wants direction and helps the man change his tire. After, he gets out a map and shows it to the man. It’s his drawings. Sheldon can still see his father taunting him. With his mind under attack, Sheldon tells his father that he’s grinding him down. His father tells Sheldon that he should ask for help, or he will end up like him. Sheldon rings Jane to let her know that he’s alive. He apologizes and tells Jane that he loves her. However, Sheldon has to quickly go as he needs to help someone outside. He ends up getting punched to the floor.
A young girl picks up his map, and she says the windmill is at Millar farm.
Sheldon’s journey is an intriguing one because it forces the viewer to question whether he’s delusional or if he’s following a destined path. Of course, it’s predictable as we understand the present-day, but it’s still an enticing origin story.
Present-day — Chloe is late for a photoshoot
Nick and Chloe return to Chloe’s apartment. She asks Nick if she should have gone to the funeral. She wonders if she should have “given a s**t.” Nick tells her that this is her life, and she should do what feels right, not what other people think she should be doing. Those words evidently resonate with Chloe because the pair have sex.
The next morning, Chloe is panicking because she’s late for her latest photoshoot. Nick then reveals he is applying for the Union of Justice, which irks Chloe. He’s hoping that she puts in a good word for him. Chloe tells him the first thing her father will ask is, “can you take a punch?” and then she punches Nick through the wall. Chloe heads to the photoshoot and sniffs coke in between different takes to keep going. Eventually, they ask for a superhero pose — an angry Chloe picks up the car and throws it.
Chloe will have a long character development if this series remains on Netflix — her displeasure for her family upbringing is the backbone of her story. She’s out of control in Jupiter’s Legacy season 1, episode 4.
1929 – the Millar farm
Sheldon heads to the Millar farm. He has flashes of memories — he remembers the place. Eventually, a farmer approaches him and points a gun. The farmer thinks he is from the bank, but Sheldon insists he isn’t who he thinks he is and saw this place in his head.
The farmer tells him he isn’t the only one that has seen this place in his head and that he’s had the visions himself. Sheldon explains they started when his father died after the wall street crash. The farmer describes his experiences after serving in the navy and asks him if he’s been listening to the sea. He states the sea found him after all these years, and the water always finds them.
The farmer asks if the person speaking to him is somebody close (referring to his father) and warns that they will lie to him — the farmer then shoots himself in the head.
Present-day — dropped from modeling and picking up the bag from the briefcase
It gets worse for the lead character in this episode as her behavior reaches an escalation point.
Chloe learns that her actions in the photoshoot have lost her all the endorsements — she is dropped by her agent as well. As this happens, it flits back to the scene from the last episode, where she bumps into Hutch and his friends when they accidentally crash into her. She took the bag from the briefcase that they had stolen. Chloe heads home and takes some power (that looks like tiny crystals) from the bag and snorts it; suddenly, she gasps and laughs hysterically. She rings her friend Kaitlyn and tells her to get over to her apartment, claiming she’s scored good s**t.
Chloe organizes a party, but the landlord comes over and tells her he is serving notice and tries to kick her and her friends out. However, Kaitlyn repairs the hole in the wall with her powers that the landlord was complaining about. Chloe asks him to get out of her apartment and threatens him.
As we near the end, the longer Sheldon stays on the farm in 1929, the longer he feels visions and voices coming to him. The farmer whispers to him, “go” repeatedly. Walter finds Sheldon at the farm, and he tells his brother that he’s ready to come home — he can hear numbers repeating in his head that is clearly coordinates in the sea.
Chloe ends up throwing up, so Janna helps her. Chloe remarks that Brandon wants to be his father. She tells Janna that she doesn’t have friends because she’s an a*****e. Janna tells her that she is better than this, but Chloe disagrees. Late in the night and sobbing, Chloe contemplates ringing her mother before smashing up her phone. She gets out more of the drugs and snorts it. Eventually, she breathes raggedly, and her nose bleeds before smashing into the glass coffee table. She begins choking on her own vomit. Hutch shows up and sees the bag is almost empty.
Jupiter’s Legacy season 1, episode 4 brings another enticing chapter by exploring Sheldon’s journey in 1929 and delving deep into Chloe’s issues with the family — the series is doing well to bring a story that goes beyond just being superheroes.
