'Britannia' Season 2 Episode 2 Preview: Is Cait alive after last week's fall from the cliff?
Well, she better be alive else the Romans aren't going anywhere
Spoilers for 'Britannia' Season 2 Episode 2
Britannia, the land of magic and the dead. There was a time when the Romans were scared of the place. Julius Caesar had come all the way there in order to make this their colony. But when he met the Droids, he went back - intimidated by their magic and the power of Gods. But several decades later, Aulus (David Morrissey) is back to lay claim on this land. And so far, he is succeeding, or so he thinks.
Following the events of the premiere episode of Season 2 of 'Britannia', the show takes the story forward via the other characters.
According to the official synopsis of the episode, "Phelan's (Julian Rhind-Tutt) new life comes crashing down. Phelan, son of King Pellenor, lives in the north as a farmer by the name Rolf and is expecting a child. When he visits a market in the neighboring town, he makes a terrible discovery. The Dead Man (Mackenzie Crook) sends Hella (Laura Donnelly) on a mission. Rork's suspicions about Veran lead him into a duel."
Based on the synopsis of the episode, it looks like we will finally get to catch up with the rest of the characters. In the last episode, Veran (Mackenzie Crook) spoke to The Dead Man. He kept this a secret from everyone, but two people in the camp know what they are talking about. So naturally, he is going to invite trouble and unrest.
What the other Droids at the camp don't know is that Veran had asked The Dead Man to help him find Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox), the girl who possesses the power to drive the Romans back to their land - the girl who is being trained by none other than Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) aka the Outcast.
Speaking of Cait, we want to know if she managed to survive following her fall from the cliff in the premiere episode. During last week's training, we caught a glimpse of her and Divis for barely a few seconds before she, dressed in what seems like the best equipment - some wings stuck to her back, jumps. Well, she better be alive else the Romans aren't going anywhere.
Elsewhere, Phelan, following the tragic death of his sister Kerra (Kelly Reilly), has fled. The synopsis of the upcoming episode suggests that we will get to see him too; he has apparently built a whole new life for himself, away from the Romans.
But for how long?
