Above: Catch up on Colony in 90 seconds!
Season two of Colony ended with the final few hours of countdown to Total Rendition -- every human in the L.A. Bloc slated to be sent to the Factory (on the moon!). The Bowmans scrambled to escape, turning to their old frenemy Alan Snyder (Peter Jacobson) for safe passage beyond the wall. They offered to trade him alien communication tech known as the gantlet, which the Resistance was hoping to use to hack the aliens. But even though Snyder has been offered a position with the Global Authority in Europe, he surprised everyone by asking the Bowmans if he could go with them.
Now it's six months since the Bowmans fled the L.A. Bloc. Here's where we left off...
The Bowmans are finally all on the same side.
After two seasons of sneaking around and keeping secrets from each other, the Bowman family is finally back together. Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) and Will (Josh Holloway) are on the same page with the Resistance, and Bram (Alex Neustaedter) seems to have learned a lesson from his time in the labor camp, watching all his Red Hand friends pay for trying to overthrow the Hosts. Charlie (Jacob Buster) is back from his time beyond the wall in Santa Monica and is adjusting to being part the family again. With the gauntlet in their possession, they are hoping to make contact with Noa’s people (R.I.P. Noa) once they get beyond the wall.
Snyder always looks out for Snyder.
From the moment Will first started working for Snyder as when he was Proxy, Snyder has been inscrutable and unpredictable. Although he has helped the Bowmans occasionally, including protecting Bram when he was in the labor camp (while murdering all of Bram’s Red Hand friends), Snyder’s only true allegiance is to himself and his own best interest. Upon learning that L.A. is set for "total rendition" and that local authority Helena Goldwyn is heading a new position with the IGA, Snyder decides to hitch a ride with the Bowmans out of the Bloc. On the road, it looks like Snyder has finally chosen to stop his weasely ways, until he reaches into his pocket and pushes a button signaling... someone.
Maddie is left behind...
Katie’s sister Maddie (Amanda Righetti) made her choice early after the Occupation, eventually shacking up with Nolan Burgess (Adrian Pasdar) in the Green Zone to protect herself and her son. She bought the benevolent spin of the brainwashing Greatest Day cult, choosing to believe the best of the hosts. At the crucial moment when she had to choose between Katie and the hosts, she turned her back on her family. Her decision cost her dearly; Nolan betrayed her, her son was sent away, and Maddie ended the season in an evacuation camp with no friends in sight and her illusions of the Greatest Day shattered by Snyder.
... while Broussard stays behind
After leading the Resistance, as the Bowmans flee the Bloc, Broussard decides to stay behind with the manhunt for him underway.
Was Noa telling the truth about having a RAP that wants to help the humans, and can the Bowmans find it?
Why did the drones first let Will go when they had him pinned on the wall? And then Broussard later outside the theater? What does it have to do with their names on a list kept by Black Jacks?
Who was Snyder signaling on his way out of town?
Does Broussard have a plan to fight back or is he on a suicide mission?
