What I’m Watching: The Red Road

The Red Road: Season 2, Episode 4 “A Cure” (B+)

Things are happening fast, even if it doesn’t seem like they’re moving all that quickly. Harold went in to work thinking that he was in trouble for responding to the Lenape call against protocol, and it turned almost right away into his being made captain, something he obviously was not expecting. The mayor responding to his plea to review how Lenape calls are handled was also much more optimistic than he might have thought, and it should be an interesting road going forward. Finding out immediately that there is something big that his predecessor was covering up about the water being poisoned, leading to all the cancer that has spread, is hardly a desirable thing to step into, and he’s going to have to be careful about who he decides to trust with this news. Philip is an interesting ally, coming by to see Jean but actually to report something to the FBI, and then leaving with the assignment of getting his father family photos as a substitute for the $20,000 Harold was never going to give him. Junior’s father burst onto the scene with an immediate axe to grind with Philip, and now it looks like Junior is leaving town to see what it’s like to have a real father. It looks like Lisa Bonet is going to be sticking around this show on a more regular basis as Sky indicated to Philip that she wants to be chief, something that’s sure to come between her and Marie and not help ease external tensions at all.
