'Emergence' Episode 9: Jo and family continue to fight for Piper even though they are in danger from a mysterious new villain
We know for a fact that Jo (Allison Tolman) would not only never look at Piper as something that belongs to her, she will also not let anyone that thinks this way get near her
'Emergence' has one of the most gripping storylines of any show on TV right now, with a quick-paced narrative and yet, we keep having to wait weeks on end to find out what happens after most episodes, because of the many breaks ABC imposes on the show.
This week again, we will not get to see Season 1's Episode 9 of 'Emergence', because of a week-long break.
However, as we wait for the episode to premiere, we have some leads on what to expect. Primarily, we are concerned about a newly introduced villain, who made her debut at the very end of Episode 8, which was aired on Tuesday, November 26.
We see that this new character is extremely dangerous and even killed Alan (Seth Barrish) for taking something that belonged to her.
Taking things that belong to others — primarily AI — seems to be the running theme on the show. It started with Kindred (Terry O’Quinn) at the beginning of the series, and now we see her continuing it.
Much like Kindred, we suppose that the new villain is also alluding to Piper (Alexa Swinton). However, we know for a fact that Jo (Allison Tolman) would not only never look at Piper as something that belongs to her, she will also not let anyone that thinks this way get near her.
She started loving Piper like a daughter and so has her family, with even her ex-husband Alex (Donald Faison) warming up to her. Last episode we saw him take a road trip with her to her old house, and has come around to looking at Piper the same way Jo has — a little girl, rather than a series of codes.
From the synopsis for the upcoming 'Where You Belong', it is clear that the newly introduced villain will be coming after Piper, and that she wants to get to her no matter what the cost.
The cost may end up being the lives of the Evans family members. It remains to be seen how they are planning to combat her, especially with the knowledge that Piper now knows who she is really is and yet the Fatal Exception hasn't been executed.
Season 1 Episode 9 of 'Emergence', titled 'Where You Belong' will air on Tuesday. December 10 on ABC.
