Resurrection - Ep 1.6 - "Home" - Review

"The thing is, when do we ever have a guarantee in this life? If I lose him (Jacob) tomorrow...at least I'll have had these days with him"
- Henry

There are only two episodes remaining this season for the mysterious ABC hit drama Resurrection. Two episodes to give us so many answers to the myriad of questions we have and two episodes to close what will hopefully be the first of many seasons. I like this show and wish ABC would renew it for another season because I feel there is so much more to this story they need to tell and many more avenues they can go down with respect to the 'returned' they can bring back. It looks like it is headed in that direction after getting a look at the 'episode seven' trailer for next week. I know I said I don't like trailers, but sometimes they look good and provide some useful information. Take a look at next week's promo and you will see what I mean.

Episode six deals, in part, with the ramification of Caleb's sudden and mystifying disappearance from his prison cell just a few feet from Marty last week. Sheriff Fred is seen obsessing over the surveillance feed of Caleb's cell to no end. He gains nothing from the video, other than seeing Caleb one second, then disappearing an instant later. I can only imagine that Caleb's whereabouts will be revealed to us in the finale and not a minute sooner.

Meanwhile, Marty and Maggie speak with Eric Ward, a scientist of the National Institute of Health, regarding the 'returned' with the intent of discovering the origin and cause. I had wondered since the first episode why the government has not been involved yet, as word of mouth grew. Even though Eric promised Marty and Maggie to keep Arcadia's spirited situation a secret, I have an uneasy feeling that the feds will rain down on the once quaint little town. He discovers a neat little fact about the 'returned' after performing a few mathematical functions. He tackles the issue like he would a virus. Where did it start? Where did it go next? If you look at the latitude of where the 'returned' reappeared and subtract the number 40 (the latitude of Arcadia), then divide by the number of years they were missing you get a constant value of .38. What that constant means we still do not know, but it is a neat little fact that tells us there is a correlation between the facts of their reappearance. Eric presumes that Jacob would be better off at his lab in Bethesda and offers the Langston's to come together so he can study Jacob further so he does not suffer the same fate as Caleb.

Rachael finally tells Tom that she is pregnant with his child and that does not come without its consequences. That new revelation does not sit well with Tom's wife, or for that matter, Helen, one of Tom's churchgoers we met a few episodes ago. At the next church service, Helen tells the congregation Tom and Rachael's secret and most of them leave as a result of losing faith in their pastor.
The episode ends with Henry telling Marty that the family will not be going to Bethesda, citing that their home is in Arcadia. We don't get to see him tell Eric this, but I suspect he will not be too happy about it. This is where I believe the feds will come to take Jacob away. Of course, I have been wrong in the past...a lot, lol. In the meantime, Gary, and a cop friend of his, abduct Rachael under the pretense that sheriff Fred needs her down at the station for questioning. They take her to a cabin in the woods by the river and, like an ominous warning to all, it begins to storm.

I thought the episode was a little slow at times and only offered a few more clues as to what is really going on with the mystery plaguing the town of Arcadia. We still have yet to meet Barbara, Sheriff Fred's wife that perished in the same incident as Jacob. Fred pulls out his wedding band and places it in its rightful "home" by his bedside. Maybe that scene was a bit of foreshadowing and we will see Barbara in the next episode? Either way, I really hope the pace picks up with the penultimate episode next week. It appears Arcadia will get a lot more 'returned' visitors, proving that Caleb was right, that this is all just the beginning.

Thoughts and Discussions

- Why does no one lose their mind when they are told that someone has come back from the dead? Eric just acts as if it is a natural thing that he needs to study.

- What does the constant, 0.38, mean? why is it significant?

- I know I asked this question last week, but I think it's important that we keep unanswered questions together. Where did Caleb go? Why did he suddenly disappear? What or who is the cause?

- Why did Gary and that cop kidnap Rachael? What are their plans for her?

- Before the finale I will post "Unanswered Questions" so they are all in one neat package. Why don't you list all the questions you would like to see in that post and I will compile them between now and the next episode's Review?

Thank you for checking out my Review! Please comment below so we can discuss the episode and show further!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
