Review/Recap Resurrection | ‘Old Scars’ (Season 2, #4)

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Unexpected guests strain Langston family relationships.”

  • Synopsis provided by Hulu.

Well that episode really dropped a bomb as far as the mystery behind Grandmother Langston and her connection to the bones of the Returned from the past. There is something happening, some underlining connection that makes her character so intriguing. Viewers don’t know what to make of her, to call her good or evil, or even an anti-hero. She knows more than she is letting on and while she is bringing the Langston family together, she is also creating strife where there was none. It’s hard to figure out just what her character is up to, but that creates such wonderful tension and mystery.

Now that being that, the new mystery of the bones of the old and murdered Returned was a remarkable moment as well as a remarkable instrument to propel the show to new heights. The mystery is so captivating and builds off the preexisting mystery behind the returned. Additionally, the fact that this happened before and the reaction of the past that was revealed in this last episode puts into perspective how history has changed and how people respond to the miracle that is life.

Another moment this show brought forth was the character growth, especially in Janine, Fred and Rachel. There’s so much that has happened to these characters who first started out as naïve and petty people and the direction they have chosen to become these understanding and respectful characters is very good for the show and the characters.

Overall, it’s interesting how the show has developed since the first season, building up the mystery of the Returned.
