The Price of Power

on Friday, July, 13, 2012 4:41 AM
Discussion thread for Uprising episode 'The Price of Power' which aired today.

---

Is this the last episode for a while? I didn't see a thing for the next one, and the guide isn't being helpful.

How much you wanna bet that Tron has to use the weapon in the finale, and that's how he winds up as Rinzler?

He already has 2 discs. He get's one from a guard when we see him fighting in a flashback scene during Legacy.

Anyone else notice the reference to Lord of the Rings? Elijia Wood has to go on a journey to destroy a ring-like object threatening to overcome his will?

Eh, I as waiting for one to come up. I'm glad they did this in such a way as to keep it from being cheesy. Big massive cliffhanger at the end though. I'm wondering if that will be the next episode that deals with it, or if we'll have to wait a couple of 'em. I also liked how they resolved the side plot with Zed and Mara. I want to see more of them. For a second there, AI thought Beck was going to reveal himself to Zed.

Yeah, I was kinda waiting for Beck or Pavel to say, "MY PRECIOUS!!" LOL!

Did I see Beck do a little homage to Neo (Matrix) the first time he fought the guards after applying the red ring? He did this little one-arm-behind-his-back-while-casually-blocking-multiple-hits thing that was almost exactly like Neo's final corridor fight against the Agents at the end of the first Matrix...

He already has 2 discs. He get's one from a guard when we see him fighting in a flashback scene during Legacy.

But we don't see him with that second disc in Uprising, so I'm not putting too much weight on him having kept it. I just see it as foreshadowing the fact that he'd be fighting with two discs once he made his face-heel turn into Rinzler. Another clue to help moviegoers connect the dots and make the Tron=Rinzler connection before the finale.

The main reason I don't think Tron's running around with the uber-booster as Rinzler is because he doesn't need it. I'd say the boost it provides brings Beck up to Tron's level in terms of speed and fighting ability. Though it is possible that damaged Tron + disc booster = capabilities equal to healthy Tron + warped mind... Hmm...

I wonder what plans Pavel has with the weapon. He doesn't seem ready to hand it over to Tessler, what with his maniacal laugh and all. Maybe he'll use it to get his ultimate revenge on Paige?

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Pavel tries to backstab Tesler himself at some point. He seems that ambitious. Paige would definitely be his first target, though.

then why doesnt he have it in the show? because that happened before the show.

Because he hasn't been in any fights that necessitate using two discs?

Wow did anyone notice this??

I thought the reflection of Beck in his Tron suit was really foreshadowing Tron as Rinzler. It was so fast and subtle, but really deep if you stop and reflect on it.


Thoughts??

Why are people automatically assuming that the second disc he's using is the one he picked up off of some random Black Guard mook he ganked during the fight at the crosswalk in Legacy? This is Tron we're talking about. If he's fighting with two discs as Rinzler, I'd like to think there's something more to the extra one than 'found weapon looted off of some faceless low-level program he crushed'.

Black guards are anything but low level.

They're supposed to be like one rank below Tron in terms of skill level.

quick speculation; what if he gets his second disc from this Dyson guy? maybe Dyson gets derezzed by Tron or someone else and he picks up his disc? or possibly he even takes Dyson's disc away from him as punishment?
