The Lost Symbol Episode 8: “Cascade”
After the death of Sato in the previous episode, this one is focused on the looming threat over the Solomons from their own kind. Robert and Katherine are scared for Isabel Solomon, Katherine Solomon’s mother and Peter Solomon’s wife as she seems the only member of the Solomon family that has remained untouched. Now, that Zachery is back as Mal’akh, it somehow directs us to a path he would build to walk to Isabel. Especially, after the creepy visual we got the last episode of Isabel eating Zachery’s baby teeth.
Meanwhile, Peter Solomon still seems to be caught in the loop and after-effects of Araf as he is often tormented by dizziness and a vision of a hand coming out of the water. Is this what Mal’akh meant to do when he put Peter in the water between life and death? Well, that we are yet to find out.
Another half of this episode is dedicated to Peter Solomon getting in touch with other Leviathan group members, now that he is out of imprisonment. Peter is determined to try his best to protect the organization from the hands of Mal’akh it seems. There’s also the tension between Langdon and Katherine and how they were pushed together by Peter in the previous episode but did fall apart by the end of it. One thing is well understood about our duo that they would only get together on their own terms and cannot be forced by an external force.
Will either of the group be able to face Mal’akh’s wrath? The final episodes of The Lost Symbol approach with this question looming over our heads along with the obsessive discovery of the portal and the whole, detailed truth about the portal.
