‘Resurrection’ Season 2 Premiere: All The Details!
Things are wilder then ever in Arcadia! Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
The episode begins with Marty alone in a swamp. He’s having flashbacks about trying to save Jacob and keeps having pains in his chest. Marty immediately heads to the Langstons house to find out what’s going on. He thinks he’s only been missing for a small amount of time, but he’s in for a big surprise.
Marty arrives at Henry and Lucille’s house and finds that Jacob safe and sound. Henry explains to Marty that he’s been missing for an entire WEEK and that officials told the Langstons that Marty was dangerous. They say that “soldiers” brought Jacob back to the house.
Marty, being Marty, wants to know where the returned are. Henry says they know that those who had loved ones in town were allowed to stay, but the others were taken to an unknown place. Things don’t slow down from there.
Yes, Jacob is safe, but Marty continues having major pain in his chest and fuzzy flashbacks about being in an interrogation room. He says he needs to find out exactly what happened to him after he tried to save Jacob. “I need to figure out who they are and what they want,” Marty says in his usual badass tone.
Soon after, Marty’s boss Toni calls and tells him to meet her in Chicago. He agrees, thinking Toni is on his side. But more on that in a a sec. Before Marty goes to Chicago, the episode skips back to show Jacob. We see Jacob walking around near his gravesite. While he’s there, he sees his paternal grandma! She has returned.
Margaret Langston is back. She goes to Henry and Lucille’s house and everyone is understandably shocked! Henry immediately tells his mom that he’ll call his brother Fred — having his own mom come back is sure to change his mind about the returned, right? Margaret describes to her family how she remembers dying. It’s a very emotional moment, but Fred still hasn’t come to visit his mom.
Speaking of Fred, it looks like his drinking is out of control. In this episode we see Fred drinking in his car and at a bar — oh, and we also get to see that he always keeps extra booze in the glove compartment of his car. So sad. Later in the episode, Fred actually tries to kill himself. Right when he’s getting the gun ready, his mom (Margaret) walks in to his bedroom. Even though Fred can see his mom, returned, right in front of his eyes, he still won’t believe it. Margaret slaps her son and insists, “Who am I? Say it!” Fred finally says, “Mom,” and she takes the gun away from him. Hopefully now that his mom is back, Fred will get himself together again.
Now, back to Marty and his crazy situation. He does go to Chicago, where he thinks he’s meeting Toni. But then, he sees a man and woman from his flashbacks! He remembers that the people he’s seeing tortured him in an interrogation room. He runs out of the bar before they can catch him. Later, at his apartment, he hears a noise. It turns out the woman from the bar is INSIDE HIS APARTMENT! She lays out what really happened to poor Marty.
It turns out that Marty is one of the returned. Yep, you read that right. During his interrogation, Marty was shot, died, and then returned to life. The woman in Marty’s apartment tells him that he now works for her. She says about the returned: “They’re safe, for now.” She then informs Marty that he will “report back” to her “from time to time. Consider it a reassignment.”
She says to Marty, “You can refuse, of course. We’ll just put you with the rest of them.” And just like that, we find out Marty is actually one of the returned. What a shocking twist! Now, the real question for the rest of the season will be how Marty deals with this news. Will he be able to deal with the fact that he’s one of the returned? Will he try to find out where the returned are being kept? We can’t wait to see what happens next.
