The Lost Symbol Episode 6 Review: Who Is Mal’akh?

The Lost Symbol Episode 6 sheds light on a desperate Mal’akh trying to get Robert and Peter to crack the code. The series is developed by Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie, based on the bestselling author Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol that follows the story of the young Harvard professor and symbologist Robert Langdon on a journey to solve a set of puzzles that will help him save his mentor and friend, Peter Solomon while also simultaneously opening a doorway to a secret that has been preserved over the centuries. Robert Langdon is joined by Peter Solomon’s daughter Katherine Solomon on his journey to uncover the archaic secrets.

With every episode getting a weekly release and having a run time of about 45 minutes the show tries its best to bring the essence of Dan Brown’s book to screen. The series features Ashley Zukerman in the lead role as Ivy-league Symbologist Robert Langdon and Valorie Curry alongside him in the role of Katherine Solomon and Sumalee Montano as Sato from CIA.

The Lost Symbol Episode 6: “Diophantine Pseudonym”

Since the beginning of the series, this episode is the first where we see Robert and Peter in the same room working to unravel the mystery. Prior to this, it has just been flashbacks where we see the mentor-mentee duo progress. Having said that, this episode clearly explains the high ground and articulate development Langdon’s character has gone through that it is mostly his knowledge that drives the duo to solve the mystery with a sprinkle of Peter’s Masonic mastery.

The CIA’s failure in the last episode that determined Langdon being captured by Mal’akh drives Sato to team up with Katherine and Nunez. We have not seen them work together and mostly, against or secretively towards each other till now so the determination to finish the case for once and for all really picks up now that we are midseason.

But that is not all that this particular episode has to offer, because it is time to finally know who Mal’akh is. As the episode progresses we find certain links to Zachery Solomon until we are slapped with the biggest and most unpredictable truth. Well, the reason why Zachery’s past and story had been kept under wraps until this particular episode makes more sense now.

However, the new reality is going to be hard to accept for the audience and surely going to disrupt the way the characters have functioned to eliminate our villain so far. Moreover, now that we know how driven Mal’akh is to get the ancient portal open there are certain moral questions that we can place in front of him now that we know him better. But then, do we really?

The Lost Symbol Episode 6: Final Verdict

The Lost Symbol Episode 6 is by far one of the best in the season in terms of giving the characters’ purpose and making the show progress towards anticipation by leaving us with a cliffhanger. It is going to purely get interesting from now on to find out what’s next in store for the characters as well as the audience.
