Warning: I talk a bit about Game of Thrones and some major developments in that story as a comparison to Colony in this episode. If you call yourself a Game of Thrones fan and are not completely caught up (an excuse-less condition), you may want to skip ahead in the podcast when it comes up.
This week’s episode marks Will Bowman’s return to action hero status. I have to admit I was a little concerned when a very desperate Will got his butt kicked in the first episode. After seeing the hold Solomon had over Charlie, plus the scar tissue remnants of Solomon’s “lessons”, Will’s edge returned. With Charlie safe from the local poncho-wearing warlord’s retribution, what will Will do?
And then there’s Katie. Katie. Katie, the woman who can accuse her own sister of not trying very hard to use her politically persuasive boyfriend to Bram released. Never mind that Bram broke one of the cardinal rules of the colony -or- that Maddie’s had to basically sell her body to buy Nolan’s affections. Katie just calls ’em like she sees ’em, and in this case she saw a real lack of hustle on Maddie’s part. I loved watching Maddie verbally kick Katie’s ass.
Alan Snyder’s alive! It looks like his new title may be something more like “Warden Snyder” rather than proxy, but hey! It’s not the factory!
What’s to come next week? I bet Will has to stay in Santa Monica longer than expected to clean up the mess he surely created at Solomon’s. What stupid idea will Katie have? She will probably try to enlist someone’s help (Jennifer? Broussard?) to try and not only find Bram, but get him out. These are just guesses of course.
