'Warrior' episode 4 will see Bill fight his gambling addiction while Ah Sahm gets offered a way out
The show has reached a point where the characters are now trying to break free from all that which pulls them together in the same war.
Cinemax's 'Warrior' is running strong with its unconventional story about the plight of Chinese immigrants who find themselves trapped in between discrimination and the notorious Tong Wars. Episode 3, titled, 'John Chinaman', followed Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji) as he tried to free himself from the unhinging wrath of the law, while Penelope (Penny) Blake (Joanna Vanderham) tries to poison the Mayor in her own attempt to break free from the shackles of chauvinism. As the story begins to take a complicated turn with Ah Sahm's relation with his sister, Mai Ling (Dianna Doan), Episode 4, titled 'The White Mountain' is set to take a deeper look into the murderous lanes of San Francisco.
The official synopsis of the episode reads as, "Big Bill finds himself compromised by his gambling excesses, but discovers a possible solution; Penny reveals the circumstances that prompted her to marry Mayor Blake; Mai Ling offers Ah Sahm a way out of a protracted and bloody tong war." As we wait for the episode's arrival, here's everything you can expect from it:
1. Big Bill in trouble
Bill O'Hara (Kieran Bew) has been perhaps the most sympathetic character on the show as he is the man who has fallen prey to the law's war against the immigrants. Appointed with the task of maintaining peace in Chinatown, Bill often finds himself in a lost situation where is unable to take sides. The upcoming episode will see him drowning in his own debt, as he begins to spend more money on gambling as an attempt to maintain peace with the other rookies in town. However, Bill is not a man who runs away from misfortune but he has always been someone who takes his fate in his own hands, and hopefully he will be able to find a probable way out of his gambling habits.
2. Ah Sahm on Penny lane
Penny and Ah Sahm have been attracted to each other ever since they met, and in Episode 3 we saw Penny take up the bold step of revolting against her husband's decision to captivate Ah Sahm. Now that he is finally free, Penny has perhaps decided to pursue her forbidden feelings for the warrior, and the warrior too is ready to reciprocate those feelings. Penny is about to disclose quite a lot of her life, and chances are there will be some missing clue for Ah Sahm in her story about aristocracy and self-imprisonment. On the other hand, it wouldn't be a surprise either if Penny turns out to be just another spy for the Mayor to bring down Ah Sahm.
3. Mai Ling's redemption
Mai Ling might have refused to go back home with her brother but she does not want him to be involved in the bloody battles of the Tongs. She will perhaps come out with a way to help Ah Sahm get out of the tong. The two siblings are right now fighting for two very different tongs, and Mai Ling has pledged herself to this war. However, Ah Sahm's continuous pursuit of his sister has created quite the obstacle for her since she can now neither ignore him nor fight him in the way she fights other men. Yet it might just be a matter of time before Mai Ling too decides to leave the ruthless battles behind her.
'Warrior' returns to Cinemax on April 26.
