The last couple of episodes may have felt like side steps around the heart of the series, but by exploring young characters that viewers didn't know very well, if at all, along the reveal of dooms day count down clocks, helps fuel what might be considered one of the best episodes of season, if not the best.
This episode is an episode filled with high-energy thrills and double-downs, as viewers dance around little plot threads open from previous episodes.
The boy Emmit, whom Will let escape in last week's episode, is the object of everyone's desire from Bennet wanting to make progress on the Red Hands with having Burke doing surveillance and Will doing field work, to Broussard and Katie wanting to get to him and also reach out to the Red Hands, but Emit fears for his own life at the expense of his own Resistance group!
It's briefly revealed that Morgan and Eckhart were once lovers, and Eckhart talks about his mom to Morgan, while trying to convince Morgan to kill Broussard and make a run for it!
Not any mythological reveals, but the episode is very exciting and fast-paced. If only more episodes could be like this one, Colony might be able to rise from a good series, to a great one.
