Last week on Colony, Will (Josh Holloway) and his suspicious partner Bob (Toby Huss) ferreted out a suicide bomber cell, but got no info from the girl, no thanks to Bob’s torture methods and Will’s softness. The file-stealing-accusing train traveled from Nolan to Maddie to Katie (Adrian Pasdar, Amanda Righetti, Sarah Wayne Callies), and everyone denied it. Katie had taken the file to Broussard (Tory Kittles) to decode it. Broussard not only found out when Bram (Alex Neustaedter) was being released, he also found out that there was a countdown clock until when everyone would be gone. Maya became a suicide bomber on the shipment transport, while everyone watched it explode with fear and awe.

Spoilers below.

Colony 2.8 “Good Intentions” review: Helena (Ally Walker) holds a proxy meeting about the explosion. She wants the publicity far away from the greatest day, but Proxy Alcala (Tony Plana) goes ahead and speaks to his bloc about it anyway.

The decision about a response? Doesn’t look good.

Will and his partner get called in about the kid Will secretly let out. They get separate assignments.

Katie meets Broussard. His cell is getting antsy. Simon shows Morgan (Charlie Bewley, Bethany Joy Lenz) the flyer with his mom’s face. It’s their chance to get out. “We need to give them Broussard.” Will she?

Snyder finds dead Jenkins (Mac Brandt). “Clean it up. Not a trace.” He talks to Bram about him stealing the key card. He wants names for damage control, then shoots 3 kids on the head in front of Bram, who is pretty much broken. Helena shows up and yells for Snyder to get in the car. He is a little resistant, but she says she’s trying to save his life. He makes a redhat throw Bram in too. The car speeds away and Bram watches the entire camp demolished.

Will goes back to the cell hideout. He runs into Frankie’s mom and has to tell her she died. He doesn’t turn her in.

Broussard and Katie bring the doomsday clock to Hennessey. He gives up the kid’s location. They go to move the kid, but the redhats show up and grab him (after almost catching Katie in a closet). The kid is questioned, but he doesn’t give up Will (for now). He says the leader of the cell is Karen, Frankie’s mother, which shocks Will. I called that.

Lindsey (Erin Way) threatens Charlie (Jacob Buster) for bouncing his ball in alien church. She says if he keeps it up, he will never see his family again. Gracie (Isabella Crovetti-Cramp) is shocked. Lindsey is SUCH a bitch.

Eckhart and Morgan lie in wait for Broussard – double-crossed! Morgan hits Simon in the head and Broussard kills him. Morgan is so upset. “I owe you,” says Broussard. Nice foreshadowing.

Lindsey is teaching a lesson when Charlie hears something. He grabs Gracie and runs. Lindsey runs after them, and then masked men come in and shoot her. Will and Katie come home and see her, and take out the 3 intruders. Charlie and Gracie are safe on the roof, with a knife in Charlie’s hands. I want that kid next to me during the apocalypse.

Bram and Snyder drive up to the house – right after the Bowmans have been relocated.

Snyder drops him off at the new place with a Snyder remark. Bram walks in and hugs his mother, but it is his reunion with Charlie that has me (and Will) in tears.

Incredible action this episode. So exciting! I really enjoy the fast pace of this show. How much do I love Snyder? He’s such a d*** and I still love him. Jacobson is THAT good. I was convinced though, that Snyder would spin the prison camp rebellion to be the fault of Nolan. Helena was a bit of a surprise too, with her soft spot for Snyder and agreeing to the Bram tagalong. I am so happy that Lindsey is gone. She was an unnecessary annoyance.

Colony airs Thursday nights at 10:00pm ET on USA.

  1. I’m sure everyone is very heartbroken that Lindsey died. I bet people were crying and more angry over her loss then Glenn and Abraham dying on the Walking Dead. LoL
