If Colony had a Talking Dead-style “In Memorium” section of the show, this episode would have had a long one. A major character, a minor one, the minor one’s sons, and then red-hat collateral damage. Let’s not forget moon-base plague-man!
The terrorist cell Will has been after all season, also known as the Country Quayle Jamboree featuring Katie, is swept into the pages of history with a little help from their leader turning rat (and a little more help from Will’s good aim). Things play out in a way that will let Katie skate back into her normal, non-insurrectionist life and all she has to do is take the opportunity Will has created. Can she? Will she? Her unexplained draw to Broussard is likely a time-bomb within her and when he calls, she will come a’ runnin’. Maybe in the meantime, she and Will can re-forge their own bond, focus on getting Charlie back, and at least make it hard decision for her when Broussard comes knocking.
Overall, great episode, full of surprises; top 3 of the season.
In other news, we are taking part of this week’s Blab From the Bloc! Sign up and be there as we get to help interview Peter Jacobson (Proxy Alan Snyder himself)!
Footnote: If you notice a reference to “hot-talk” or “talking hot”, you should take this to mean that the person is speaking in an undeservedly braggadocios manner.
