Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan: Season 2: Venezuela
February 18, 2020 10:15 PM - Season 2 (Full Season) - Subscribe

After tracking a potentially suspicious shipment of illegal arms in the Venezuelan jungle, CIA Officer Jack Ryan heads to South America to investigate. Jack’s actions threaten to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy, leading him on a mission spanning the globe.

That’s Amazon’s description. The globe-spanning is mostly Venezuela, a little bit in London, and a tiny bit in Moscow and the US.

Many spoilers follow.

Greer has a heart condition. Jack is immediately seduced by a German spy. A US senator gets blown up. A bunch of stuff happens, much of it pretty predictable. The whole thing ends with a raid on the Venezuelan presidential palace and somehow it is okay for them to just mow through the security staff but a bridge too far for them to kill the president. And oh yeah, the US senator that was supporting Jack’s adventures turns out to have been a bad guy.

The not-John-Clark character dies. There’s no mention of Cathy.

Nothing more about Victor, either. Maybe next season.

Got a few episodes in, it's ok, but just haven't continued. Kind of an anti-thriller. Er unthrilling thriller. A bit confusing which corrupt south american politician is the most corrupt politician. Needs more nukes and more german spies ;-)

Yeah this was... okay. Not as good as the first season, I thought, and Cathy being memory holed was kind of weird.

The politics don't make any goddamned sense. They swapped out the actual government of Venezuela for a right-wing nationalist government but kept the US sanctions, which were put into place to coerce Venezuelans to kick out the Chavez-Maduro government in favor of the right-wing nationalists currently being led by Juan Guaido.Weirdly lazy writing.
