Home Before Dark Season 2 Episode 9 Spoilers

‘Home Before Dark’ season 2 episode 9 is titled ‘The Biggest Life’ and promises to be explosive. As things are left at the moment, with an explosive video — giving concrete proof of Strata Tech’s wrongdoing — landing in the Sheriff’s office, some major conflicts are to be expected. Additionally, Hilde and Matt are also in possession of the video and seem to have figured out how the latter’s childhood friend Richie Fife was involved in the conspiracy. This might lead to some truly decisive moments in the show’s story so far as the long-running mystery of Richie’s disappearance might finally begin to unravel.

Additionally, we can expect to see Sheriff Trip finally stand up to her belligerent supervisor and go after the shadowy corporations instead of falling prey to perceptions and politics. The fight has become personal to her since her father is forced by the actions of Wott Management and Strata Tech to sell their ancestral farm. The fact that she has invited Frank Jr. to rejoin the force and help with the investigation is also an interesting angle that will likely show up in the upcoming episode. We might even see the retired Sheriff Frank Sr. come in and help in a bid to redeem himself and right some of the wrongs he did all those years ago in the Richie Fife case.

Home Before Dark Season 2 Episode 8 Recap

Episode 8 opens with Hilde realizing that most public installments and buildings — and even her school chemistry book — have been donated to her hometown of Erie Harbor by Strata Tech. The insidious corporation has been claiming to support the town for decades while secretly poisoning its townspeople. She asks the head, Mr. Williams, as much but gets no satisfactory response. The company’s boss then launches his own campaign to bury Hilde’s investigation and spin the narrative in his company’s favor, much to the reporter’s frustration.

An audacious plan to steal Strata Tech’s confidential files leads the gang to break into Izzy’s boyfriend Ethan’s house, whose mother works as an assistant to Mr. Williams. Despite getting caught, the information that Hilde and her accomplices are after is collected and sent to the Sheriff’s office by Ethan. His timing is especially good as Sheriff Trip has recently decided to launch an investigation into Strata Tech and Wott Management, the latter of which is discovered to be a shell company of the former.
