Even in a group of misfits, Umta sticks out. An adult with more history than any of the youths around her can possibly imagine, she knows about survival – and suffering. Brought back and remade seemingly to take care of the helpless children around her, she plays the mysterious guide and hunter with skill…but despite her knowledge, she is just as vulnerable as all the rest when the caretakers make their long-dreaded return.
This episode focuses on Umta, the mysterious woman who helped Holden and Seyah escape the caretakers on the first episode.
I’m so happy to finally read this episode! Umta spiked my attention the moment she appeared on the first episode. She wasn’t really a big part of the plot in the latest episodes, which makes me wonder about her and what she’s doing. This episode answered some of my questions about Umta but not all.
I really liked the plot of this episode and it was amazing to be inside Umta’s head.
I’m enjoying the series so far and I recommend it.
After the ending of this episode, I can’t wait to read the next!
