COLONY - OVERVIEW & SYNOPSIS

In the not-too-distant future, Los Angeles has been invaded and occupied by outside forces, causing a rift between the city’s residents; some have collaborated with the occupation, while others are rebelling and suffering the consequences that come with that choice. Former FBI agent Will Bowman and his wife, Katie, must consider their familial obligations when making their decision because they were separated from their son, Bram, during the invasion. Proxy Snyder, a cunning and powerful leader within the occupational government, offers Will the opportunity to get Bram back if he works with the invading faction. Will’s decision doesn’t sit well with Katie, but the couple risk their lives — and their relationship — to protect their family.

COLONY EPISODE GUIDE




Colony – Season 1, Episode 1 – Pilot
Will Bowman goes looking for his missing son and attempts to smuggle himself to Santa Monica (another walled “Colony Bloc”) inside a tractor-trailer truck with the help of a shady character called Spider. At a Rap checkpoint at the Los Angeles Bloc wall, the Resistance detonates a truck bomb in a nearby vehicle. Surviving the blast (as perhaps Spider did not), Will is arrested from the wreckage and kept in a holding pen with various prisoners, including the Collaborator-hating David. Meanwhile, Katie seeks insulin (now a rare commodity) for her nephew, Hudson, from a black-market home chemist and escapes a deal gone bad by pulling a pistol, possession of which is punishable by death. Further risking execution, she violates curfew to contact Will’s co-worker Carlos, tries the hospital where the truck-bombing victims are being treated (from where she steals insulin), and finally learns from Resistance contact Broussard that Will has been captured. Proxy Capt. Lagarza has identified Will and taken him to L.A. Governor Snyder, who, above a sumptuous Collaborator cocktail party observing the launch of a Host spacecraft, makes Will an offer he may be unable to refuse and with which Katie may not go along. Snyder shows up at the Bowman residence with armed men to coerce cooperation, but Will demands help in finding their missing son. Katie meets with the leaders of the L.A. resistance.
First aired – 14 January 2016
Colony – Season 1, Episode 2 – A Brave New World
Will begins his work as an unwilling Transitional Authority agent, working under L.A. Homeland Security’s callous bureaucrat Phyllis, whom he pegs as a former CIA officer. He and his assigned partner, Beau, look for Andy, the man who planted the truck bomb that went off the week before, and arrest him outside the apartment of his girlfriend, Teresa. Katie is given permission to reopen her bar, the Yonk, and Broussard meets her there, seeking information on Will’s investigations. In the meantime, Carlos has been arrested and his co-worker killed for their roles in helping Will in his earlier attempt to leave the city. Katie and Will help Carlos’s wife, Lucia, and son find shelter and new identities. Maddie, working in catering services for the Collaborators, meets an old acquaintance, George, who is now doing well as a Collaborator. He invites her to his home for a fling, but afterward only wants to see her again “discreetly” because she does not live in the Collaborators’ “Green Zone”. Feeling used, she refuses this arrangement and leaves. Katie feeds intelligence about Will’s anti-insurrectionist work to Quayle and Broussard. Quayle says Geronimo and the Resistance are close to a breakthrough that could damage the Hosts’ position and help bring about the end of the Occupation, but he also warns the arrest and interrogation of more members of the rogue cell who pulled off the truck bombing could dash these hopes because they know too much. He enlists Katie to redouble her efforts to use Will to get information. Will is unable to save Carlos from the Factory and is ashamed of his collaboration, even if it is protecting his own family. Carlos and other Factory-bound prisoners are put through a decontamination regimen and their fate is uncertain. Katie overhears Will is headed to apprehend the rest of the bombing cell and informs Broussard. Will and Beau arrive at the cell’s hideout only to find them executed by the Resistance, who have left “Geronimo” graffiti. Will concludes there is a security leak within Homeland Security. Katie is as yet unaware her double-agent work has gotten people killed.
First aired – 21 January 2016
Colony – Season 1, Episode 3 – 98 Seconds
A Resistance mobile radio operator, listened to secretly by many of the people under the Transitional Authority occupation, tells the story of the injustice that led to the Santa Monica gate truck-bombing, and urges people to join the Resistance. Katie joins more resistance members to hijack a supply truck. A civilian distraction gets a Resistance member shot. The Resistance learns – at the cost of lives – that Host drones respond to the gunfire in 98 seconds. Katie hides her post-combat panic attack, and questions it would arouse, by sexually distracting Will and blaming her anxiety on their missing son. At school, Bram meets after class with teacher Mr. Carson, with whom he has been working to record the “Geronimo” broadcasts and study the Hosts’ spacecraft launches. Will and Beau investigate the hijack scene and find Justin’s body. Will and Jennifer search Justin’s home and find a Resistance cipher. The entire Kim family is sent to the Factory. Will has more doubts about his collaboration. Katie expresses similar doubts to a Resistance contact. Fellow student Pia leads Bram to a secret way under the Wall. Will and Beau discover the L.A. Resistance’s underground armory and shooting range, costing the operation half of its weapons. Life gets more perilous for the Bowmans: If the intelligence that Katie can glean from Will doesn’t outweigh the damage Will’s investigations are doing, they will eliminate him. Snyder makes a pompous appearance at the Yonk. Will learns the Raps keep detailed information on all citizens in a database that Homeland nicknames “the Rolodex,” but most of the data is from before the Arrival. He tells Katie he plans to use it to find their missing son Charlie, and hints at a further anti-Host plan. Katie uses knowledge of this database as a bargaining chip with Broussard to protect Will. Pia tells Bram that, outside the walled Blocs, structures and supplies remain, but everyone is simply gone.
First aired – 28 January 2016
Colony – Season 1, Episode 4 – Blind Spot
Broussard is shown to have infiltrated a Homeland Security team. The Bowmans’ home is hit with a small firebomb so Katie can surveil the post office while being questioned. Maddie gets a work assignment with Charlotte Burgess, and offers help locating prominent artworks in exchange for insulin. Bram’s pirate radio tapes are found but Phyllis destroys them to protect Will’s family. Will is able to find and capture the pirate broadcaster, Luis Ortega, but finds he is reading scripts delivered from the green zone. Phyllis reveals a picture of Katie at the truck ambush, coercing Katie into working for her. However, when Phyllis returns home, Broussard is waiting and executes Phyllis and her bedridden husband.

Colony – Season 1, Episode 5 – Geronimo
Will and Beau follow a lead on the Geronimo posters to a home in the green zone with a concealed print shop, capturing an advertising executive who invented the folk hero but has no connection to the insurgency. However, Snyder makes an announcement that Geronimo was captured and puts Ortega on a week-long televised show-trial, after which he is publicly hanged. Jennifer suggests Katie could be the leak, leading Will to search their home and the Yonk. Bram ventures outside the wall with Pia, and helps her loot a warehouse. Quayle has his people, including Katie, gear-up for a big operation, while Snyder pulls Will into his SUV as his motorcade leaves the courthouse.

Colony – Season 1, Episode 6 – Yoknapatawpha
The L.A. Colony administration plots against Snyder, waiting for a mistake to undermine his appointment. In the lead vehicle of Snyder’s motorcade, Broussard kills his team, halting the convoy at an insurgent ambush. Will holds them off and retreats, and the insurgents abort as drones approach. However, Snyder refuses to radio for help, fearing a coup or infiltration by the insurgents, and they end up sheltering at The Yonk. Katie quietly informs the insurgents, and Quayle orders lethal force against Will. Katie kills a member of her cell to protect Will and has a brief standoff with Broussard, who leaves as Snyder appears to have fled. However, Will lied about Snyder’s hiding spot and he emerges when Homeland Security arrive. Will informs Katie that folk hero Geronimo doesn’t exist but was used by fanatics for violence. Quayle sends the surviving members of the cell into hiding, concluding that Katie is a double-agent.

Also, Lindsey is shown to be a youth leader for a religious sect anticipating The Greatest Day, seeing the Hosts as the Second Coming, and secretly begins indoctrinating Gracie.

A man named Eckhart approaches Broussard for tactical support on an operation. Quayle tries to hand over his cell at a meet with Eckhart, letting Homeland Security ambush them all in an open food market, but Katie spots troops on a rooftop and sounds an alarm. Broussard and Eckhart are able to flee but Rachel is killed along with a number of civilians. Will kills Quayle in a safehouse, blaming it on Broussard.

On the anniversary of the arrival, violence breaks out between Homeland Security and many mourners, protestors and looters breaking curfew. Will and Beau convince Snyder that insurgents are being delivered supplies from outside the colony, and from the top floor of a downtown skyscraper look over the wall to try and plan their escape. Broussard brings Katie to meet with Eckhart’s cell, who need tactical support abducting a regional VIP they believe is coming into the colony by subway. Snyder’s people discover the utility tunnel under the wall, and Will realizes it is the perfect way out, urging Katie to leave with Beau and their children while he gets Charlie. He confides knowing that she’s been spying on him for hardened killers, but she chooses the cause over her family. Will invites Beau to escape while he can. Katie and the insurgents blow up the train and discover the VIP is in a high-tech full-body suit with four-digit gloves.

Maddie takes the children to the Green Zone and safety at the Burgess home, but Bram sneaks away and brings Mr Carson to the tunnel. Jennifer identifies Eckhart and gives Will a head-start to save Katie. He warns them that Homeland is coming and Broussard allows them five minutes to learn what they can, but Katie removes shielding so a signal from the Host’s suit gets out, forcing them to flee as drones descend. Snyder tries to make a deal with Nolan to save the bloc and get himself a modest job in the Transitional Authority. The Host is carried out in a shroud, and Snyder gives Will the transit pass his daughter had refused, urging him to use it quickly.
