What I’m Watching: Homecoming

Homecoming: Season 1, Episode 4 “Redwood” (B)

This episode featured one hell of an ominous opening with the bloody planting and tracking the shipment from formation to delivery with some very eerie music. We also saw Cruz in a far less friendly setting when he first showed up demanding to know why Shrier took the fall and why he was gone when he was going through the same thing. It all always seems to lead to a haunting story for Cruz’s time serving in the military that doesn’t bother him nearly as much as it should by the time he finishes it. The far more engaging portions of this episode were those that took place in the future, as Heidi was disturbed to discover that she can’t remember that she was in the hospital. I was very excited to see Carrasco show up at Redwood looking for answers about Homecoming only to have Colin come straight out to talk to him. He was all about denying that he knew Heidi and pretending nothing suspicious happened, and I was just starting to think that he was losing the upper hand because he wasn’t walking while he was talking before he began doing just that. Carrasco still made an impression by telling him he had located a subject and that, coupled with Heidi dialing Colin at the end of the episode, left him very frazzled. Though I know we’ve seen her before, I immediately recognized “SMILF” star Frankie Shaw as Heidi’s fellow waitress who was very encouraging of her pressing for answers when we saw her this time.
