Plot

SPOILERS AHEAD


Mother continues to look for Paul, stumbling into the dead body of a Mithraic in a pod.

Paul, still holding onto the tree, gingerly makes his way to his bag. However, the large branch breaks slightly. The bag falls as Paul hangs on for dear life, but he loses grip and begins to fall. Mother hears his scream and transformers into her necromancer form, flying down into the pit and catches Paul. She tells him it's time to sleep as Paul breaks into slumber. She stares down the volcanic abyss below and flies up.

The Mithraic march through a sandy landscape populated with dunes, heading towards a large rock-like formation. The leader, Ambrose, is set down (to Marcus' reluctance). The elder is shocked to find a structure with a intelligently-built design, having thought this to be a virgin planet. Another official declares it to have five points like in the prophecy. She utters that they will find the holy temple in the hidden land where Sol hid the answers to the Mithraic mysteries. A soldier exclaims it's warm to the touch. The Mithraic touch the structure and kneel in respect, Marcus being the last one.

At the settlement, Mother advises the children to keep their eyes shut as she is weaponized. She lays Paul down on one of the beds. Campion begins to tell Father is useful as he saved them, but she ignores him and heads outside, hearing the creature's screeches. Peering through the door's hole, she encounters the enraged creature. Father, appears, telling her it was stalking near the lander, but he's undecided on what to do with it. Mother leaves it for him to decide. Mother apologies to Father that her words about his kindness giving them danger were untrue, but Father refuses to hear it as he believes it to be true. He fears he's losing her respect as much as his own.

Paul reiterates his near-death experience to the other kids, with Campion agreeing his android parents saved them. Hunter dismisses their actions as a result of their prayer to Sol. Campion accalls him a coward, everyone a coward except Vita. Hunter tells the boy he insults his real parents, though Campion retorts he never knew them so he can't insult them. Hunter says they're with Sol in the light, and are watching him as their parents are. Campion asks if the same can be said for Mouse, though Paul sadly informs him death is the end for animals.

Outside, Campion finds Father sharpening a large spear, despite their rule of no weapons. Father says that'll change, so they can eat the animals. Campion objects to killing them, but Father reminds him he doesn't want the other kids to starve. Campions pleads he can find another source of food, but Father reminds him he and Mother search the forest fruitlessly over the years. Campion reasons his hunger will drive him to look harder, but Father says it will cloud his thinking if it hasn't already. Campion begs Father, and despite his objections he relents.

Tempest asks Mother why she kept the Mithraic necklaces, and Mother answers she likes to recycle whenever possible. Tempest apologizes for tricking Father, to which her reply is that he can be too trusting. Tempest begins to tell of her untrusting boyfriend back on Earth as Mother uses her heat breath to melt the Sol pendants. The android says her powers have just come to light, and believes Father may think of himself as inadequate. Tempest asks what he can do that she can't, and Mother weakly answers he can be amusing at times. She wants what's best for her, the colony and the baby, and will find a way to make sure everyone is taken care of. Tempest asks if they can use her lab to bring it to term. Mother disagrees, as she finds Tempest fortunate to have a child to come out of her, unlike herself. Tempest will be a creator, whereas Mother considers herself forever a creation. The girl says she's do anything to be like her, but Mother cautions that children often ask for things they don't really want. Tempest defiantly declares she isn't a child, and wonders what Mother just made. She answers a scalpel, much to the girl's immediate fear of childbirth. Mother announces it's time to sleep, and Tempest is immediately entranced into slumber. Mother pokes a hole at her wrist and extracts the Mithraic tracker in her. With a touch to the wounded area, she is healed.

Mother finds Vita and asks her to come, and she escorts her to the rest of the children at the beds. Commanding them to unconsciousness, She proceeds to do the procedure on the rest of them. She later dumps the trackers in a faraway valley.

At the Mithraic camp, Sue alerts her husband the children moved again. Marcus tase it open himself to approach Ambrose, though Sue stops him and says she'll do it, as they know what happens when he talks to people. She tells Ambrose the news, but a female official asks why they should leave Sol's gift unopened. Sue is informed by her that this may mean abandoning for the children, as a test for them to not leave their holy mission by sacrificing their loved ones. Sue begs him not to listen to her.

Ambrose's female android yells from the top of the dodecahedron that there isn't any access inside. Ambrose finally proposes they use explosives to explore the inside and leave, much to the female official's shock. He orders Marcus to breach it, and disrespectfully says yes. Marcus and his men begin to excavate to place the bombs.

Elsewhere, Campion hands Father a small mass of potential food. Chewing it, the android tells him the chemical composition is unsuitable and could be deadly. Father says to stop wasting energy, but Campion is determined. Near the grove, he yells that he sees something up on one of the branches. Initially failing, he knocks out a cluster. Father tries it out and says it might be a source, thought he's have to conduct more tests.

Ambrose shows his rotting hand to Sue, asking if she can help. She accepts, complimenting its appearance. He reveals it was from a bad lander accident back on Earth. Sue says his hands needs to be realigned. He notes she's the last remaining medicine practitioner that have. She questions him if Sol won't judge them for letting their children die. She begs him Marcus is ready to lead the attack, and won't fail. Ambrose doesn't answer initially, but she presses on. He answers in a vague prayer, and notices her unfamiliarity with the verse. She asks if it's from the scriptures, and he answers yes after a pause.

Campion is determined the food he found will be viable, and names it piazza after the food everyone liked back on Earth. He places it inside the bio-fuel tank, and is caught by Father about to pray. The launcher, however, finds it to be toxic much to his disappointment.

Mother, to no one is particular, sadly says there is no pulse inside one of her old baby vials. Father comes in, asking why's she's repairing her lab. She responds she'll use it to carry Tempest's baby, much to his disagreement. Mother reasons that she was impregnated against her will, but Father says her traumatic stress is treatable. He says she shouldn't tamper with the natural process, as nature should run its course. Father is against it, but will let her have the final decision. In addition, he says he will slaughter the creature, as it has some meat for the children to eat until another is captured. Mother offers her help, but Father reluctantly admits he needs to feel more useful.

At night, Marcus is disturbed by a series of different frequencies he hears and wakes Sue, who can't hear anything. The rest of the survivors are alerted as Marcus crawls away form the rock, screaming in pain. Ambrose yells he's a ticker - his mind has been infected by the necromancer. Sue desperately says he needs medical attention as soldiers around Marcus begin to restrain him. Sue screams at the men to eat Marcus go as Ambrose grabs a gun and prepares the execution. Sue is grabbed and desperately begs for him to stop as Ambrose mutters Marcus' salvation prayers. One of the soldiers yells at him to stop, discovering a n ear wig that is one of theirs. Marcus, no recovered, accuses Ambrose of trying to get rid of him. The elder denies such atheistic treachery, but Marcus demands an explanation as does the rest of the adults. Marcus exclaims Ambrose has never been on the battlefield, but thinks those that did are disposable. Ambrose says if he had fought, he wouldn't had to carry the light, and we all have our duties and functions, and taunts him to break Sol's law by striking him down. Sue notices his female android moving, and as the android grabs the handgun of a soldier, she breaks free and with another gun she shoots the android down before it can kill her husband. A soldier discovers she has the earwig transmitter, and is announced as the real culprit. Ambrose forgives Marcus' error, and notes she is repairable. Marcus, however, shoots her six times in the stomach, detecting her permanently and informs him no repair is necessary.

The next morning, Campion gingerly opens the door of the mill but is stopped by Father. The boy informs him he's setting the creature free, and Father says he's changed his mind - Campion will kill it. He advises the boy it will trigger feelings of revulsion but he'll need to get over it to grow up. Campion definitely states he wants to remain a child. Father thinks his new friends might think differently, forcing Campion to turn to Mother. Father brings out the four Mithraic kids as Mother marches to him, angered he hasn't killed it. He tells his partner the children need to learn and that's he's handling it, but won't involve Tempest. Mother adds Campion too, but as much as they both ant to exclude him, they can't. He asks for a few hours, and so Mother announces she saw some parts in the forest to repair the mobile lab. If the creature isn't killed by the time she returns, she'll do it herself. Campion says he won't do it, much to Holly's annoyance. Hunter states that as the son of a senior cleric, he'll be impure if he kills but that a military family (Paul) or an android can do it. Father retorts that they will have to start eventually and orders one of them to take the spear. Holly takes the spear, and hesitantly but with force stabs it. The creature begins to scream in pain, scaring Holly and the other kids into run away to Father's frustration. Looking at the creature, Father compliments its unintelligence, remarking death's unpleasantness.

In the forest, Mother scavenges for parts. Using her freeze breath to melt a hole into a capsule, she takes out several wires, and violently opens the door of a pod. Throwing out the human body inside, she places the plug into her body. Ignoring an automated voice, Mother enters the Simulation.

Mother takes into the glitchy Simulation, taking in the image of a monk who greets her. Entering through an image of her settlement, she's transported into a landscape, where a memory of her past self enters the igloo to find a young Campion near her damaged mobile lab. Campion quietly tells her he can fix them, but an emotional Mother scolds him that the embryos are dead. She screams at him to get out as present-day Mother sadly looks on. Simulated Mother then comes out, followed closely by the real one. Spiria and Gabin tell her it was their fault, that they melted the lab with snowballs. Confused, Mother would later ask Campion why he lied to his siblings, and she's informed by him that they didn't need to feel sad. The pair reach a pit, where Campion asks if she'll them the truth. Mother answers no, and, handing him the box, he throws the ashes into the pit. She sadly commends him for the gesture.

Marcus rips out his android assailant's body, and fishes for her batteries. His soldier friend says he didn't know they trained him for that at the Mithraic academy. Marcus says war taught him to pick up things along the way. The solider confides in Marcus his suspicions that Ambrose was the tru culprit, and Marcus adds on others believe he has lost his faith. Sue joins them, and asks the solider about the scripture lines. She's informed it's a lullaby, one every Mithraic child knows. She fearfully tells Marcus that Ambrose knows, and wonders why he didn't take her out alongside him. Marcus thinks he can't, as she's the only medic left. Marcus plans to kill Ambrose and frame it as an accident, though Sue reprimands him that too many eyes are watching them. She is resolved to get Paul on their own. He agrees they leave at dawn, and Sue reminds him to keep his head down and follow orders.

At night, the shivering Mithraic huddle at the rock for warmth, which has stopped emitting heat. Ambrose states the walls are thicker, and that they'll survive if they had inside. He asks for his explosive to be placed, much to his female followers' extreme reluctance. One refuses to place them, forcing Ambrose to do it himself. The Mithraic move away from him. Ambrose declares Sol will forgive them, and orders Marcus to place it. Marcus suddenly hears whispers as he heads to the rock, and exclaims their elder has lost his faith. They are being tested, and they must not falter. Enraged, Ambrose grabs him, menacingly whispers he knows he isn't truly Marcus and begins to blackmail him. Suddenly, Marcus pushes him to the wall, which has begun to glow red. Ambrose is burned in the face and later pushed back into the wall. Marcus lets go as Ambrose is embroiled in fire and dies. He preaches that this is Sol's judgement for him abandoning their people and their children, and forces a soldier's hand to the wall. He discovers it's warm again, and the group rushes to the wall. Sue asks if Marcus is all right, and all he says is that he heard a voice.

Back at the settlement, Father heads out to check on the creature, and hears a rustle behind him. He looks back, shocked to find Tally standing in front of him. She giggles and runs away, with Father chasing after her.

Mother continues to look for Paul, stumbling into the dead body of a Mithraic in a pod.

Paul, still holding onto the tree, gingerly makes his way to his bag. However, the large branch breaks slightly. The bag falls as Paul hangs on for dear life, but he loses grip and begins to fall.

Inside the igloo, Tempest, checking if the coast is clear, steals the incision blade. At the hut, Campion tells Hunter he is eating something poisonous. He tells Hunter he will not let him die, and Hunter throws it back at him, saying he will not judge him for trying to eat it. The children hear a scream. Tempest has killed and gutted the creature, grabbing an organ and bites. Father searches for Tally in the grove and hears another scream. Running back to the hut, he finds Tempest in shock. He begins to console her as she informs him of the baby creature she is holding, discovering the creature to have been a mother. She falls to her knees.

Quotes

Ambrose: "I thought this was a virgin planet, no prior civilization. This has intelligent design... Symmetry. It has five points, like in the prophecy. You'll know them by their shape and their number. The temples in the holy land, where Sol hid the answers to the Mithraic Mysteries."


Mother: "Keep your eyes closed, children. I'm weaponized."


Father: "What is your opinion, Mother?"
Mother: "I will leave that for you to decide."
Father: "An unusual answer for you."
Mother: "Father, I am sorry for my... My critical words. I was in error when I told you that your kindness makes us less safe."
Father: "But you were not in error, Mother. My behavior endangered the children, almost cost Campion his life. And I fear, despite your kind words, I am losing your respect. As well as my own."


Paul: "I lost Mouse down the pit. And... and then I fell and fell, and I thought I was gonna burn up. And she saved me... The necromancer, she saved me."


Campion: "Death is forever when you're an animal."


Mother: "Do you know how fortunate you are? I've always wanted a child that came from me. You are a creator, whereas all I'll ever be... is a creation."
Tempest: "Well, I'd gladly switch places with you. I'd love to be able to do the things you can."
Mother: "Children often ask for things they do not really want."


Ambrose: "[to Sue] To think you left Earth knowing nothing about medicine, now you're its last remaining practitioner."


Father: "I've decided to slaughter the creature we captured. {...} There's not much meat on it, but it should be enough to keep them from starving for a few days, until we capture another."
Mother: "Should I kill it now, then?"
Father: "No. I said I would do it."
Mother: "But I can do it more quickly, without any mess."
Father: "No, Mother. I need to be... more useful."
Mother: "I don't want Campion seeing. It'll pain him. You know as well as I that his sense of empathy is highly pronounced."


Father: "You can do this, Campion. It's part of growing up."
Campion: "Then I want to remain a child."


Father: "[to the dying creature] At least you're not intelligent. I died once. Death can be very unpleasant when you're intelligent."


Mother: "I told you children never to play with this equipment. I told you, and I told you and..."
Campion: "I can fix them. I can fix them."
Mother: "No, you cannot fix this, Campion! 'Cause these are not broken. These are dead. All six of them dead! And dead is forever! Get out. Get out!"


Ambrose: "I know you're not Marcus Drusus."
