Agent of Year Zero
“Zero” is one of the few, if not the only episode we did that had a bit of political history mixed in, drawn from the Pol Pot regime and their heinous crimes. The germ of this was, of course, a victim (the blind Cambodian woman) who’d lost her family like Jarod had. The other interesting element was the exploration into blindness and the fact that there are cases of traumatic blindness that can be cured through the mind. This then gave us an added victory that Jarod could strive for — to help this woman overcome her fear and not only face the man who killed her family, but expose him and regain her sight because she conquered her trauma.
There are strong emotional moments here and stirring performances.
Little Known Fact:
The actress who played Kim Che, the blind Cambodian woman, Dieutinh Ales, had never acted before this role.
