ReMade 1x07: Mourning Train

Previously: Teddy and Inez learn that life on the set of a reality show isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially when said reality show is run by Caretakers.

This Week on ReMade

Nevaeh picks herself up—while reminiscing about her illness, her mother’s misguided hope that unusual therapies would help, and her return to the hospital—and tries to make the best of time on the train. Together with Inez and Teddy, who still seems to think that everything’s in his head, Nevaeh searches the train, finding a bunk car and a food and water source. When they head toward to the front of the train, however, they end up in a funhouse car, and a dead end.

When Nevaeh asks Loki for help with a broken door lock, he leaps to the conclusion that everyone, including her, is out to get him. His rage leads him to shoot the broken door. On the other side, they find a small caretaker that doesn’t seem to be doing anyone harm, but Loki’s tendency toward being unhinged results in a bolt through the eye. The train doesn’t stop, however ...

Moments of WHUT

- Plague vectors?

- That bizarre train car, tho.

- Pretty sure the idea of Loki getting out the gun and starting to shoot isn’t as ridiculous as you might think, Nevaeh.

Best of the 23

I love that Inez stands up for people, even when she barely knows them. And total fist pumps to Nevaeh for smacking Loki when he really deserved it.

Burning Questions

- Where are the caretakers getting their strange ideas of how rooms are supposed to look?

- Where is the train going—and what will be at the station where it stops?

- When will Teddy realize that all of what’s happening isn’t in his head?
