'Chosen'Episode 3: Did Hans want to kill Emma? Mystery man reveals the truth
Danish series ‘Chosen’ is now picking up steam after the mysterious death of Hans and it seems the town of Middelbo is going to go through many changes in the recent future. Emma (Malaika Mosendane) has embarked on a journey to find the truth and she is in no mood to stop. However, Mads (Albert Rudbeck Lindhardt) has been taking the credit all along even though he does nothing.
The second episode ended with the mysterious man from the spaceship reaching Hans’ house and saving Emma’s life. He was looking for something inside Hans’ (Henrik Prip) secret room that was filled with fungi. Meanwhile, Emma is distraught with what is happening to her. The third episode of the Danish sci-fi series finally reveals the identity of the mysterious man from the spaceship. He seems to be an alien from a different planet who has taken the form of a human and has come to earth to find something.
Meanwhile, Emma has applied for a job at Astraeus, the company that has come to Middelbo and re-open the shipping yard. The sole reason for going there is to find out what’s happening there and why Astraeus has suddenly come there to make business. However, Hans’ death has been bothering her and she feels that police will come to look for her and ask questions. So, she and Marie (Andrea Heick Gadeberg) go to the police and tell them everything. To their horror, when they reach Hans’ home, everything is just normal and the secret room is just looking like any other room now.
As soon as Emma comes out, she sees a silver van close to Hans’ house and believes someone inside the van has done this. Emma and Frederik (Andreas Dittmer) trace the van and find that it is parked outside a motel nearby. They reach there and try to find the owner of the van. Unfortunately, the person is not what they were looking for and they return.
Mads (Albert Rudbeck Lindhardt) still feels that Astraeus is behind everything and it might be doing something. But Emma believes that Astraeus is normal and what they are dealing with is something from outer space. An argument takes place between them and Emma leaves.
A few moments later, Emma is kidnapped and taken to an unknown location where a man asks about her identity. The person turns out to be the mysterious man from the spaceship, who has taken the name of Lukas (Anders Heinrichsen). Lukas asks if she knows about the organism, but Emma is clueless about what he’s asking for. She tells him that Hans wanted to talk to her but he didn’t tell her or gave her anything.
Lukas says she is lucky that Hans didn’t kill you because this is what “they” do. They destroy everything and they take everything from everyone. Lukas also reveals that people like Hans are “parasites” and the organism is trying to kill Emma because these parasites want to take over the planet just they tried to takes over his.
He unties her and when she asks if he could drive her home, he obliges and takes her with him. The episode ends with the visual of Hans’ decaying body and people giving him a tribute by doing a ritual. Who are these people? Are they from outer space? Or just corrupted by the organism?
Things are getting intense on ‘Chosen’ and it seems Emma is going to get the truth out somehow.
‘Chosen’ is currently streaming on Netflix.
