The Lost Symbol Episode 9: “Order Eight”
Episode 9 focuses on the portal more than the drama surrounding it which has been happening for the last few episodes. We see Katherine determined to destroy the capstone to end all ties from Mal’akh’s evil intentions until it is revealed that Mal’akh has something bigger and more devasting in store.
According to the last episode, it was in fact Isabel Solomon, the mother of Zachery and Katherine who has been tending to her transformed son. But, of course, her death was inevitable when she put her trust in the new Zachery’s hands. The Lost Symbol Episode 9 starts with a chilling funeral scene for late Isabel partnered with a cold, mantra-like background score. This is when Nunez discovers Zach, now Mal’akh, in possession of a sonar device that is revealed to emit the sound to create and destroy life.
As this news reaches Peter Solomon, Katherine Solomon and Robert Langdon, our trio set on a different plan to stop Mal’akh. Instead of destroying the map, they are finally going to read and crack the capstone. Soon enough, they figure it out. But the CIA is at the helm of their dress and needs to be informed. But, can they be trusted?
We meet Sato, who has managed to survive her brutal fate and other CIA heads as the trio draws out a plan to capture Mal’akh. But, a series of double-crosses from both sides, ultimately result in a deeper dive into the mystery and finally knowing where the portal of the ancient wisdom is located and a free Mal’akh coming to get the trio by the end.
The episode also focuses on the renewed chemistry between Katherine and Robert as much as it does in solving the puzzle the entire series is based on.
