This is the 12th episode of ReMade, a 15-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by Carrie Harris.
Cole is what you’d call a “salt of the earth” type. He works hard, loves his girl, and feels best when he’s being useful – which makes being injured particularly frustrating. When the others go off exploring and leave him behind again, he’s finally had enough. With Naveah as his accomplice he sets off to find answers of his own, and ends up learning more than he wanted.
ReMade Season One: In one moment the lives of twenty-three teenagers are forever changed, and it’s not just because they all happen to die. “ReMade” in a world they barely recognize – one with robots, space elevators, and unchecked jungle – they must work together to survive. They came from different places, backgrounds, and families, and now they might be the last people on earth. Lost meets The Maze Runner in this exciting serial adventure.
Or, you can read my review of Episode 1, Shadows and Dreams, written by Matthew Cody here, Episode two, Hungry by Andrea Philips here, Episode Three, Home, Perilious Home here, Episode 4, The Most Dangerous Game here Episode 5, Umta here, Episode 6, Reality No-Show here, Episode 7, Mourning Train here, Episode 8, End Of The Line here and Episode 9, Whiteout here.
I'm not really sure how to review this episode, or what to say, but it was filled with one emotion: Pain.
I opened this episode the minute after I finished reviewing the previous one, We're Dead In This Ghost Town, as there was a "Next On ReMade" attached to the end of it that promised a museum with answers attached, and I couldn't resist.
And now, I'm just shocked. I have no idea what to say, or how to review this episode without spoiling it, because this is ESSENTIAL to the plot line. Everything up to this point had just been a guess, but now the team finally got answers about where they are, why they're in this place and what happened to the lives they remember.
This episode was written in a new viewpoint, Cole, who's leg was injured in the Caretaker attack a bunch on episodes ago.
From the minute he started narrating, I knew Cole was someone easy to fall in love with. A reliable person, an young father and hard worker, I adored him and then FELT every inch of his pain as he did.
I'm not going to spoil this episode, I'm only going to say HOW SAD I am that I don't have the next episode ready to read, because ReMade is turning out to be better than I ever expected, and I NEED MORE.
A fast paced, pain filled rollercoaster that I can't wait to ride again. 4 stars.
