Sense8 - W. W. N. Double D?

As Amanita (Freema Agyeman) gets insight into Nomi's (Jamie Clayton) past as a hacker, skills she puts to good use to try and trace back who is behind the forced lobotomy of patients around the world with symptoms similar to her own, the pair discover just how large the stakes are when they get an up-close glimpse of the violent world they have peeled back the curtain to expose. Despite growing comfortable in his new role Capheus (Aml Ameen) is also awakened to the fact of just how violent a world he too now finds himself while working for a man willing to chop off a man's hands with a machete without a second thought.

Like these two, most of the stories continue to remain fractured and separate this week without any real bleed through. Sun (Doona Bae) begins her prison sentence learning about the unfairness of life inside a woman's prison. Riley (Tuppence Middleton) returns home to spend time with her father and find the solace which she's sought for so long. And the odd relationship of Lito (Miguel Ángel Silvestre), Daniela (Eréndira Ibarra), and Hernando (Alfonso Herrera) is threatened when her ex discovers the truth about Lito and threatens to bring the actor's life crashing down.

The only storyline that continues to have any real crossover is that of Kala (Tina Desai) and Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) who spend some time in each other's world while continuing to tease a romantic relationshp between the pair. Before that begins, however, Wolfgang will have to make it out of Germany alive. More than halfway through the series at this point I had hoped to see more crossover but while the series continues to draw out individual stories it also continues to take its damn sweet time in linking them together in any meaningful way.
