Everyone is seeking the truth on the Nov. 2 episode of ‘Resurrection’, and for once they — and we — get some answers! Starting with the shocking revelation that Marty was actually born in 1936 — so crazy!
Marty (Omar Epps) finally uncovers the truth about himself and his family when he abandons his quarantine and comes face-to-face with his long-lost sister! Read on for the full recap of the Nov. 2 episode of Resurrection.
‘Resurrection’: Marty Died As A Baby In 1936 & Then Returned — Shocking Reveal
Tonight’s episode of Resurrection was a real doozy! For starters, Arcadia is in a total state of panic as the virus is continuing to spread and verging on becoming an epidemic. While the illness has still only affected the returned, we now know that not only is it highly contagious but also that regular people are susceptible!
This makes me really worried about Margaret’s (Michelle Fairley) next move, considering she had no problem doing away with her son Fred’s (Matt Craven) perfectly healthy returned ex Barbara (April Billingsley) on last week’s episode.
Speaking of which, Fred is onto Margaret’s shocking betrayal, thanks to a tip from eyewitness Elaine (Samaire Armstrong), but his murderous mama predictably denies having anything to do with Babs’ disappearance. Fred is not buying it, however, and he seems poised for a matriarchal takedown!
‘Resurrection’: Marty, Aka Robert Thompson, Meets His Sister
Meanwhile, our hero Marty has voluntarily quarantined himself at a top secret government hospital but he uses his time there as an opportunity to investigate the cold-hearted military personnel with whom he’s been in cahoots. And that’s when he stumbles upon some shocking information about his past.
It turns out Marty was actually born in 1936! His real name is Robert Thompson and he died was he was six months old. Blown. away. Marty, aka Robert, didn’t return until nearly 40 years later, when he showed up in Chicago in 1972. He was put up for adoption soon after. But don’t get any ideas about Marty reconnecting with his real parents — they were apparently two of the first people to catch the virus and they sadly disappeared.
Marty’s sister, however, is alive and well (not infected) — and conveniently at the hospital where he is staying! He goes to see her and although he doesn’t tell her who he is, he decides that he wants to bring her back to Arcadia as soon as he’s able.
His top priority now is to get medicine to the returned Arcadians who are infected. Since he doesn’t have enough to save everyone in town, he gives what little he has to Maggie (Devin Kelley) so she can decide who needs it most. But back in Arcadia, the virus isn’t the only threat — it looks like someone is after the Langston family! But who? Guess we’ll have to tune in next week to find out!
