Resurrection Season 2 Episode 10 Review: “Prophecy”


It’s pretty much a guarantee that any time a storm blows into town on a TV show and the power goes out, things get creepy. Resurrection was no exception this week. Between more exposition of Margaret’s past and the appearance of another Returned man, there’s lots to discuss.

Jacob went missing with his grandmother at the end of the last episode when he saw the rebel group attacking his father. Thankfully Margaret wasn’t in a rush to completely disappear with Jacob because otherwise we wouldn’t have gotten to actually sympathize with her! We knew her marriage to Mr. Langston was arranged against her will but we never knew the full extent of why. Her confession to Fred and Henry that she’s always hated them was bone chilling, to say the least. Yet I can see where she’s coming from. She was forced into a marriage with an older alcoholic man who ruined her own father’s life. We can only assume she probably had the boys against her will, so naturally she would grow to hate what they represent.

Since this season didn’t get a back nine episode order, we only have three more episodes left. I’m glad to see Fred changed his mind about sending Margaret away to the government facility. Maybe it’s time for her to really make up for all the problems she’s caused in her family since she returned.

After all, it’s her fault that Lucille and Henry are angry at each other. Lucille rightly blames Margaret for poisoning Jacob’s mind and Henry for allowing her to do so for so long. Henry really hit a nerve when he shot back at Lucille by saying that he never blamed her for Jacob’s death in the first place. Ouch. If he really never thought that before, he wouldn’t have brought it up.

Lastly, we have to talk about Jim Parrack’s character, Preacher James. He appeared to have come out of nowhere in an open field and was struck by lightning. Elaine saw the marking on his back of a tree, which proved to be a symbolic location for both him and Bellamy. I don’t know about you, but I was getting strong Jesus-vibes from him. It’s hard to tell if the show is taking a religious turn so suddenly but it’s anyone’s guess as to where this is all headed. I’m not saying he’s God incarnate but he comes off as different than any other Returned so far. His connection to Bellamy is interesting, too. It all makes me wonder if there’s two kinds of Returned people. Angels and devils, or whatever you prefer to call them.

The preview for next week’s episode looks even crazier. Apparently Henry dies, and Lucille thinks Preacher James can bring him back to life. Hmmm. What do you think?
