Serial Season 2, Episode 4 Recap: ‘The Captors’

7 January 2016 10:21 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sarah Koenig, Mark Boal, and company return today with the fourth episode of the Bowe Bergdahl story following a two-week holiday hiatus. It felt more like two months. The episode’s title, “The Captors,” has the stark resonance of a classic Western. Before I even pressed play, the credits from John Ford’s 1956 film The Searchers, were rolling through my head, encouraged by the quasi-animated blue background graphics on the website. But as evocative as the title of the episode is, it’s also sort of misleading. This latest episode isn’t what we were promised at the end of the last one: a peek into America’s political and diplomatic machinations to bring Bergdahl back. It isn’t even necessarily about just his captors themselves, giving equal weight to Bergdahl’s experiences as a Pow — putting his torture in recent historical context and giving a visceral account of how he experienced neglect and boredom. »
