Last night, so many questions we’ve had all season long were answered in an action-packed episode of Colony, but, of course, new questions have since sprung up. We can’t wait to see what happens on the season finale next week, but until then, here are a few things to ponder from Colony 212, “Seppuku.”
[Warning: Contains episode spoilers]
Revelation: Broussard Always Had a Conscience
In a flashback to Broussard’s time in the military, we see that he was someone who believed in fighting for the greater good, even then. He wanted to come clean about the horrible events that his team was responsible for in the Middle East, despite the pressure to keep it a secret. Is fighting for the Resistance his shot at redemption?
Burning Question: What’s ‘Total Rendition?’
In that fateful phone call from the IGA, Helena hears what every Governor General dreads: your Bloc has been scheduled for total rendition. We’re not sure what that means exactly? But it just sounds bad…
Revelation: The Greatest Day Is Fake
We’ve been wondering since the first day Lindsey showed up to tutor Gracie what the deal was with The Greatest Day. In a universe where anything can happen, we certainly didn’t rule it out -- plus, we knew that Maddie and Nolan had experienced something transcendent. In the end, Charlie was right! Keep an eye on that kid; he’s got good instincts!
Burning Question: Who’s Going Down?
So many pieces of the political chessboard moved -- or toppled -- in this episode. Snyder told Helena about everything, including how the pivotal file that was passed to the Resistance was done on Nolan’s watch. Helena then used all of this ammunition against Alcala; he will remain Proxy, but only as a figurehead. As for Nolan? He wanted to reach the moon, and he did! But now that Proxy and Helena are cozy, do they really trust each other?
Revelation: Broussard Is Special Too
In 210, we learned that Will has always been considered an asset to the Occupation. When Broussard was in the Blackjacks' SUV, he saw that Will’s file was on their list -- but, for what, we’re not sure. Then in 212, when Broussard was about to be overrun by the Redhand, he called for the drones and they came, obliterating Broussard’s enemy, but sparing his life. Why? This is the same thing that happened to Will when he was scaling the Wall at the Santa Monica bloc. Side reveal: Broussard and Will fighting together is a badass combo!
Burning Question: Will Hudson Really Be Safe?
She has made so many bad decisions since she met Nolan Burgess that we’re concerned Maddie’s choice to send Hudson off to a camp might have been one more. Of course, we know that staying with his mom would have been terrible for Hudson too. If he’s really at a camp for the IGA’s youngsters, he may be safe, but at what cost?
Revelation: The Only Person Who Knows About Life Outside the Bloc Is Dead
In an epic shootout that saw the Bowmans retrieve the gauntlet and Karen Brun taken down, there was another key development. Noa, the mysterious pilot from outside the Bloc was killed and now the only person who has any intel on what’s out there is dead. As Katie and Will plan their escape, they have so little information on what could possibly be waiting for them!
Burning Question: What Has Snyder Done?
In episode 208, we confirmed that the L.A. Bloc's population is trending down to zero. But while he was Proxy, Snyder felt that the population would stabilize. After talking with Helena this week, however, he realized that he was being naive. Was Proxy actually having a moment of humanity?
