In the camp, tensions rise when the Bowmans argue with Andrew MacGregor over the RAP, but will cooler heads prevail? And can Broussard trust Amy following another ambush in Colony season three, episode four, "Hospitium"?
[Warning: Contains episode spoilers for Colony 304]
Revelation: Andrew MacGregor Was Arrested by the FBI
In a pre-invasion flashback – before he became Resistance camp leader – Andrew MacGregor meets with a dark web-based businessman to write an exposé for his website, “Enemy Above.” But despite his efforts to “wake up” the world, MacGregor is soon arrested by corrupt FBI agents – who falsely charge him with child pornography. (Side Revelation: Agent Garland, who arrests and intimidates MacGregor, is also the person who saved Snyder from the woods in the season three premiere, “Maquis.”)
Revelation: The RAPs Want to Protect the Humans … Or So Says Snyder
Snyder supposedly heard a lot of RAP rumors when he was Proxy, but despite living with the Bowmans for nearly six months, he largely kept quiet about alien gossip. Having “interrogated” the RAP last episode, Will and Katie now press Snyder for clarification about the RAP’s enemies. “The RAPs said they would protect us if we gave them what they needed,” Snyder tells them. “The Factory’s main purpose is to build a defense grid … [That way] Earth won’t be annihilated in the fight.” But none of them seem to know that the Factory no longer exists.
Burning Question: MacGregor Wants to Destroy the RAP. Or Does He?
The Bowmans awake to a blaring alarm. In front of the entire camp, Andrew MacGregor unveils the RAP – and speaks of his plans to destroy it. “Think of the message that will send,” MacGregor says. “We demonstrate … that mankind will not go quietly.” But why destroy the RAP when it can provide so much information? After Will and Katie fail to persuade MacGregor to keep it “alive”, they talk to the camp’s second-in-command, Vincent – who’s convinced something else is going on.
Burning Question: Whose Side is Amy on?
Amy served as the Resistance’s radio dispatcher, directing survivors out of the Los Angeles Bloc – but her team of transporters mostly ended up dead by the end of “Maquis.” In “Puzzle Man”, Amy and Broussard ran into potential allies who were quickly vaporized by the Occupation; the same thing fate befalls a young man whom the duo encountered earlier this episode. Did Amy secretly set up the ambushes?
Burning Question: What Happened to the Camp?
After failing to assassinate MacGregor, Will, Katie and Vincent are dragged by camp security to the brig – likely joined by Snyder, who is captured later that night. The next morning, Broussard and Amy finally make it to the camp – which has since been torched. What happened? Are Broussard and Amy too late?
Burning Question: What’s Going on with Seattle?
Bram discovers in this episode that the camp has been building a bomb intended to detonate in the Seattle Colony. Also, Broussard and Amy come across a flyer that reads “10 Great Things About Seattle.” What’s going on there?
