The Son Season 2 Episode 10

The Son, season 2, episode 10, "The Legend," concludes the series' run with the birth of a border town mythology and the lessons learned from the sins of a father. The great state, and former republic, of Texas is a land of tall tales. Last week's episode, "The Bear," included a version of the ultimate fate which befell Eli McCullough, leading the audience to a false conclusion. Oh, we doubted the accuracy, how could anyone know what was going through Eli's mind in his last hours facing off against the biggest bear in a state where bears are scarce. But we ultimately buy it. It's Texas, and it is a large enough story to give us a sense of comforting closure.

The Son Season 2 Episode 5

In The Son, season 2, episode 5, "Hot Oil," may be the best of the year. It is the most enjoyable so far. It is also the most suspenseful. We can tell we're on the verge of a catharsis we're relieved to sidestep. The episode opens in a dream sequence Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) is having where his young self (Jacob Lofland) is being successfully strangled by his current rival, María García (Paola Núñez). This is the first fantasia we've witnessed from Eli where imagines himself as the victim. Usually when the patriarch of the McCullough family is fantasizing, he is the victimizer. This dream is the first to shake that faith. It is also prophetic, as the first thing Eli has to deal

The Son Season 2 Episode 4

In The Son, season 2, episode 4, "Scalped a Dog," begins with some bad medicine in the 1850s timeline. A white surveyor is looking at the area by the Mexican border to gather intelligence for a fort which will be built. Fat Wolf (Glenn Stanton), the chief of the Yap Eaters band of Comanches has a zero tolerance policy for whites near the camp. His father, Toshaway (Zahn McClarnon), who is the chief of the Buffalo Eaters band of Comanches, suggests restraint. Fathers and sons have interesting and challenging relationships on The Son. They are as much rivals as they are generational heirs. Power is a fight, and the battles sometimes pit families against each other in unexpected ways.

The Son Season 2 Episode 3 Review: The Blind Tiger

In The Son season 2, episode 3, the McCullough pulls the tail of “The Blind Tiger.”

This The Son review contains spoilers.

The Son Season 2 Episode 3

In The Son, season 2, episode 3, "The Blind Tiger," gets downright Biblical. In the beginning, we see the slaughter of livestock which Pete (Henry Garrett) himself says looks like something out of the Old Testament, and the follow-up scene sets up a scenario borrowed from The Prodigal Son. When it comes to the sons of the First Son of Texas, this kind of roundup could result in a Cain and Abel solution.

Eli McCullough may run his household, and Pierce Brosnan may reign supreme over the series itself, but every character is expertly drawn and the sibling rivalry is fascinating. Phineas (David Wilson Barnes) and Pete respect, admire and like each other. Pete really did take the prodigal son route, heading south with María García (Paola Núñez

The Son Season 2 Review (Spoiler Free)

The Son season 2 shows the ruthlessness of family legacy without missing the tender spots.

This The Son review contains no spoilers.

The Son Season 2 picks up a few years after the events of the first. Pete McCullough (Henry Garrett) has been on a Mexican chain gang after helping María García (Paola Núñez) cross the border after a land grab left her the sole survivor of her family, the McCullough family taking possession of everything they owned. The first time glimpse we get of Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan), all we see are his boots, sturdy, strong and stylish. His gait opens the season as he comes to pick up his son and bring him home. Hopefully to walk in these boots.

Like a lot of Westerns, there is sibling rivalry on the McCullough ranch, especially as it moves from cows to oil, occasionally in Biblical proportions. Eli is paving the road

The Son Season 2: Pierce Brosnan Talks Cowboys and Taking Scalps

Tony Sokol Apr 25, 2019

The Son Season 2's Pierce Brosnan tips his ten-gallon hat to fellow Western stars and Texas TV icons in this exclusive interview.

Everyone wants to be remembered, and not just for the bad stuff they’ve done, a character admitted on the first season of The Son. In the Western genre of movies and film, cowboys have committed many memorable misdeeds, sometimes in order to rustle the deeds from rivals. The patriarch of AMC's multi-generational epic Western series The Son committed all these crimes and more to amass his fortune and stature. Born on the same day his state became a republic, “The First Son of Texas,” Eli McCullough came a long way on a hard road. Kidnapped by Comanches when he was a child, he was raised by the tribe in the wild and brought ruthless survival skills to his role as a businessman and pioneer frontiersman.

‘Into the Badlands’ & ‘The Son’ To End Runs On AMC, Set Premiere Dates For Final Episodes

  • Deadline
AMC’s martial arts drama Into the Badlands will end after the upcoming final eight episodes of its third season, which will debut March 24. The network also has set an April 24 premiere date for Season 2 of drama The Son, starring Pierce Brosnan, which will be its last.

Neither cancellation is particularly surprising. Both Into the Bandlands and The Son were renewed for Season 3 and Season 2, respectively, almost two years ago. Into the Badlands’ 16-episode third season was completed awhile ago, the cast was released, and a number of them have taken on new acting gigs. As for The Son, as a Western, it did draw respectable viewership though it was old-skewing. Additionally, I hear star Brosnon only had signed a short-term contract which is the case with many movie stars who do TV series these days.

Into the Badlands’ final 8 episodes will kick off on Sunday, March 24 at 10 Pm, following

Second Opinion – Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)

Maze Runner: The Death Cure, 2018.

Directed by Wes Ball.

Starring Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Aidan Gillen, Will Poulter, Rosa Salazar, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, Ki Hong Lee, Katherine McNamara, Walton Goggins, Nathalie Emmanuel, Barry Pepper, Jacob Lofland, Dexter Darden, Paul Lazenby, and Patricia Clarkson.

Synopsis:

Young hero Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure for a deadly disease known as the “Flare”.

Piecing together plotting in young adult fiction is a puzzle aimed at six-year olds. There’s a chosen one; often an orphan/an outsider/amnesiac who obtains/is born with something with which a malevolent organisation/force/individual has to obtain/kill in order to create/halt destruction/peace through destruction.

With that, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the much-delayed finale to the middling Ya franchise, once again falls under the paradigm of by the numbers youth fiction. In fact, its plot – a baffling, incessantly
