What to Expect From Raised by Wolves Episodes 1, 2, and 3?
The premiere episode is titled ‘Faces.’ Episodes 2 and 3 are titled ‘Infected Memory’ and ‘Lost Paradise’ respectively.
In the premiere episode, we might be introduced to the android couple – Mother and Father – with an appearance resembling that of a human. After the earth becomes inhabitable, we can expect the humanoids to crash land on an alien planet, designated Kepler-22b, with the task of raising six human kids in a manner that is entirely the opposite of that of regular human parents. The Mother might learn from her programmer that the earth was destroyed because of the religious zealotry, which is why she might try to protect the children from embarking upon the religious route. The series premiere might set the base for the Mother and Father’s mission and also showcase how they perceive the limits of humanity and control over humans on their mission.
The second and third episode might focus on the backstories of the rivals of the Kepler-22b residents – the sun-worshiping Mithraic people, especially high-ranking soldiers Marcus and Sue, whose sole mission is to eradicate the existence of androids from the planet. In the first batch of episodes, the android matriarch and patriarch of the family might look out for the Mithraic passengers and might pull out all the stops to save humanity from the demented Mithraic people with the powers vested upon and within her. Also expect a lot of blood, gore, mysterious sounds, sinister atmosphere, and whispers throughout the episodes, until Mother unleashes her powers to full capacity to fulfill her goal and save the children. All the events will be narrated by the youngest of Mother and Father’s children – Campion, who might turn out to be the one to serve their mission.
