Raised by Wolves Episode 6 Spoilers

Episode 5 took us back in time to witness the creation and evolution of Mother. Campion, the original creator, or programmer, of Mother is revealed to be a Mithraic-born traitor who rebelled against his creed to create Mother. The episode tells the tale of how he programs and converts Mother from the Necromancer killing machine she was created to be into a nurturing, caring maternal figure. After Mother formed an attachment with Campion, he ended up archiving her memories, so as to spare her the pain of loss when she embarks on a mission that sends her worlds away from him. In the coming episode, we may delve further back into Mother’s past with Campion and her Necromancer roots. We may also learn of what transpired for the original programmer after Mother left for Kepler 22-b.  

Towards the end of episode 5, we also see Marcus and the rest of the Mithraic finally discovering the settlement where Mother, Father, and the children currently reside and keenly observing it from afar. Episode 6 may likely lead to a showdown between the two factions. Meanwhile, Marcus, aka Caleb, in his newly-minted role as a leader among the Mithraic, has been experiencing strange hallucinations and hearing mysterious voices. Has the once-atheistic Caleb been successfully turned into a believer of Sol? Episode 6 may provide answers. 

There’s also an immense amount to uncover about the planet Kepler 22-b. A ghostly apparition of a child resembling Tally appears to multiple people. There’s also a humanoid figure lurking in the background, while constantly keeping an eye on the two androids and their children. Episode 6 may unravel these mysteries once and for all.
