Colony Season 2 Episode 8

Direct iTunes link.

After last week’s explosive climax, I thought the LA bloc would be in store for hellish retribution. We got to meet a recently-minted Proxy Alcala in Governor General Helena Goldwin’s damage control meeting. Is he another Greatest Day true believer, or cunning opportunist? In this world, at these levels, I’m going with opportunist. Damage control meeting or no, the real decision-making power lies with a higher (literally, greater altitude from the surface of Earth) authority.

Former-proxy Snyder was super-busy over at the labor camp trying to erase any proof the conspiracy originated at the labor camp. He operates with a level of ruthlessness we need to remember he’s capable of. Perhaps when he was selected as the first LA bloc proxy, this was one of the skills he was chosen for. Something about what he knew to be the seriousness of the crime and the finality of host punishments made me question his sanity a little after the fact. If you missed it, spoiler alert, the hosts obliterated the labor camp and everyone there, staff and inmates. Helena started a daisy chain of “you owe me ones” when she rescues Snyder and then when he in turn rescued Bram. I’ve always thought Snyder would be with our heroes in on e way or another until the end. Will Helena be with him?

Caroline enjoys the heck out of watching Josh Holloway clear a room. I agree with her. He is pretty convincing as he goes around killing the Red Hand assassins in his home. He was a couple minutes late to save Lindsey (RIP), but I think Charlie might have murdered her pretty soon anyway. Lindsey was a pain, but we’ll miss Erin Way, the actress that played Lindsey. She’s been very interactive with fans on Twitter and it’s a shame to see her go.

Busy, exciting episode and we still have 5 to go!

Check out a friend of the show, Michael Hall, over on his YouTube channel, where he talks about “The Science of Sci-Fi“!

  1. Suppose Emmett was working for Will’s boss. Then it makes sense that the Red Hats would only grab Emmett in the raid and not look for anyone else. They came right when Katie got there… probably not a coincidence. Think of it like the Truman Show, with Will being the star. To what end, I don’t know.

    The Greatest Day religion is stronger in the LA Bloc, according to the new proxy, and I suspected that before, because there was no sign of it in Santa Monica. I suspect the originator is somebody local, maybe Snyder.

    Lindsey will be a thousand times creepier if she comes back from the dead. Will’s checking her pulse is maybe a hint at this (because hostiles are assumed on site and so are your kids, so there is no time to tend to any wounded.) If Lindsey reincarnates, I’ll be thinking it is a twin, unless I get extraordinary evidence to the contrary.

    Keep up the good work and many thanks for the shout out for my YouTube channel!
