How do you like your Devon? Pulp? Or no pulp?
Episodes like this one are fun to watch. A little heartbreaking, sure, but still fun. Alas, poor Devon. We hardly knew her. She never Landoed Will, like I was suspecting she would. She helped him out, kept on eye on his flight-risk kid, and taught him how to survive in Santa Monica. Now, she’s just one bloody smear among many on the Santa Monica side of the wall. You can’t get too attached to mentor-ish characters in Colony. They don’t last.
Although Colony’s propensity for dispensing with mentors remained consistent, we also experienced a pleasant change this past week in the form of Katie taking some responsibility for her actions. Well, kind of. She really passes the buck to Jennifer on whether or not she’s actually held accountable. That is, if Jennifer can bring herself to turn in a grieving mother and maybe widow. Nice way to back into responsibility. “If you say I am, then I will be.”
I for one loved to see former Proxy Snyder in action and with a little of his old swagger back. The office desk on the far side of a concrete room is classic Snyder. One way or another, he is not staying in the prison any longer than he has to.
Next week it looks like Katie and Will have a much needed come to Jesus moment – under the watchful eye of Jennifer and Homeland Security. Can’t wait to see how that turns out!
