'Raised by Wolves' Episode 4 Preview: The Mithraic discover an object from an ancient prophecy
Power structures are an inevitable part of society, whether you're an atheistic android or a member of the religious Mithraic society. Everyone's just trying to find their place. In the next episode of 'Raised by Wolves', this need becomes a bit direr, as Father (Abubakar Salim) and Marcus (Travis Fimmel) are both challenged by their place in their respective microcosms of society -- and when you're lost at the end of the world, not knowing one's place could prove to be fatal.
The hit dystopian sci-fi series continues after its 3-episode opener on September 3. When we last saw Father, he was worried about his place in the family after Mother's (Amanda Collin) Necromancer powers were revealed. As Father tells Camption (Winta McGrath), he needs to be of use, and one of the ways he sees that happening is by teaching his new "family" how to hunt. Killing is not something that comes naturally to anyone; however, and Father is going to have to have his work cut out for him, and unfortunately, that means putting the children in danger.
Meanwhile, Marcus -- or Caleb, for those in the know -- finds he's going to be challenging authority after the Mithraic discover something that comes straight out of ancient prophecies. The prophecy keeps rearing its head on Kepler-22b, what with him having met Camption, the "child raised in an empty land." Though he may be acting like Marcus, he's still Caleb underneath, and it's unlikely that Mithraic prophecies hold any truck with him. He's is supposed to go head to head with the Mithraic Eminence, Ambrose (Steve Wall), but how much can he push against religious restrictions before he blows his cover?
The official synopsis for the episode, titled 'Nature's Course', reads: "Father (Abubakar Salim) tried to teach the children how to hunt some of Kepler-22b's mysterious creatures for food. Meanwhile, the Mithraic make a stunning discovery that potentially fulfills a Mithraic prophecy, and a debate about how to proceed ignites a conflict between Marcus (Travis Fimmel) and the Mithraic leader, Ambrose (Steve Wall)."
This episode of 'Raised by Wolves' releases on September 10 on HBO Max.
