Gaius Charles Weekly NBC Taken Recap Ep 9

SEASON 01 | EPISODE 09 | "GONE"| MONDAY, APRIL 24, 2017 

It's been a wonderful experience conversing with Gaius Charles (John) along with all the Phenomenal Bloggers, as well as receiving multiple private comments and remarks of loving NBC Taken and me keeping up the good work… But there’s no doubt a spirit of bitter sweetness creeping upon me as this season's recap conversation calls slowly come to a close. 

However, good news during the lastest recap convo call, Gaius shared his overjoyed thoughts about episode 09, season 01, "Gone", Monday, April 24, 2017, NBC. "It was really cool. Another great one. The whole story line is centered around Carlos Mejia (Romano Ozari) and FBI Special Agent Marie Salt's (Amanda Warren) husband, George Salt (Michael Kinney) Taken. Bryan Mill's (Clive Standen) sister's death and his struggle with Mejia. The team's stand off. Seeing the entire cast coming together doing their thing. Asha (Brooklyn Sudano) and Bryan's relationship becoming more real, which is more than a superficial piece of the episode. The stunt coordinator's run in with the carpet (lol) and shooting at the air field".

Adding, in as much as I'm very pleased to not only surprise Gaius (John) with "good questions", I'm just as tickled pink with his answers: from John being a would be frosty ice man with super cold and frosty power to remaining grateful for his celebrity status to show up for work and do his job, while serving out his calling and purpose in existing as an ice blue crayon in the crayon box, which adds a calm discipline and focus to John's character. Gaius also informed us regard to upcoming projects: he's in route to NY for a reading: mystery call (oooo...) in early May 2017 and hopefully he'll be working on Taken Season 02 (fingers crossed).

[Interesting enough too cute and ironic: Crayola announced it's new crayon color, Friday, May 5, 2017: Crayola adds new shade blue box crayons: it needs name] What would be name the NEW BLUE?  

Gaius was thereafter, asked what would he name the new blue crayon and course it's a no-brainier,  he'll "stick to his original answer, ice blue, Frosty Ice Man".

Moreover, the emotions that follow behind a loved one being Taken, such as the case with Marie and George can without question cause you to panic and react and then some. For sure this intense - blow-out episode really hit a nerve. I said it once before, I'm fed up with terrorist threats: "my insurance policy". UGH! I in return: "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain". "I am confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from my body and to be present with the Lord." Wherefore, take me and leave my family alone! But then again what would do you? And statements like: "you will always be my prisoner" are words to surely bound anyone's life: "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. #Mejia I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly". #Christ

Yet, this intensified and mind blowing episode with OPCON Agent Bryan Mills leading at the helm (taking) the wheel against Mejia, doing it his way for the good of the cause and notice how John often have the look of "I ain’t playing" and the team's no none sense (kick butt) action is certain to Take you far away!

They certainly have a situation

Finally, needless to say, without question Bryan shifts against the grain, whereas the final five minutes of the episode will grip you and Take you over the edge… leaving you breathless and anxious for the season finale... Sadly, I feel Bryan appear to end up right where he began when Asha is kidnapped.

Tune In | Season Finale’ | Episode 10 | "I Surrender" | Monday, May 1, 2017 | 10/9C:
Byran's Last Stand: As the FBI threatens to remove Christina (Jennifer Beals) from command, Bryan (Clive Standen) and John (Gaius Charles) lead a rogue mission to stop Mejia's associates before they cross the border. With no allies to assist them, the ODNI risks losing their jobs, their lives, and those closest to them. Guest starring Romano Ozari (Carlos Mejia), Matthew Bennett (Gary Martello), Layla Alizada (Elena) and Amanda Warren (Marie Salt).

And indeed with the season finale rolling around the corner, again, why are you waiting to be Taken away? I certainly urge you to catch up on episodes 1-9. And feel free to leave below any comments or questions you may have for Gaius and about the past and finale' episodes!... I will indeed be blogging upon this season's final recap convo. #Taken
