    I've only watched the first of today's episodes...but man, this show just keeps getting weirder!

    (That's a compliment, if you're not sure.)

    I'm not sure. I want to love/like the show, but I hope some of the mysterys get resolved soon. I mean the mithraic people did discover some parkour person when they left the obilisk thing in the dessert that happened to have a map of where the Atheist camp was, but who is that person? What are the ghosts/voices/AI thing the android is having sex with?? Is it all the same thing or is it multiple things whispering to the Earthling inhabitants of Keplar 22b. There's so much going on besides a bunch of a-hole humans just trying to survive... It's intersting but what I don't want is to be watching another Lost show where nothing has meaning and htere;s no plan.

    I am assuming they are still atheists, though Caleb seems like he might go on a religious power trip. As for who the necromancers are fighting for, the battle scenes are chaotic so that’s not revealing. There is the moment when someone doubts the atheists could have reprogrammed a necromancer. It was stated the religious dudes were winning the war, so how could you lose if the necromancers were on your side? I.E. the necromancers fought for the religious side.

    I'm trying to figure out why some of the characters seem to be hallucinating and hearing and seeing things like Tally, who is supposed to be dead, and the voices telling Marcus to let Mother live. There seems to be either supernatural forces at work here or perhaps something environmental that's affecting them. I find it a bit strange that they can incapacitate the androids through physical violence, yet they seem to recover on their own even though they have apparently lost huge volumes of some vital fluid that appears to be android blood. The show is definitely weird, but in a good way. I'm really curious to see where they plan on taking this show. I'm definitely in it for the long haul.

    Episode 7 had a moment that took me out of the story, when a character said, “Jesus Christ”. Shouldn’t it have been “Sol”?

    The androids are also seeing Tally so wouldn't that mean it's actually physically there and not hallucinations? Plus the entity keeps leaving dolls, cuts down the hanging carcass, and drew pictures on the wall which also suggests a physical being.

    I agree with above. It's been my hypothesis that the parkour person the Mithraics saw is Tally. I mean it kind of falls flat because the person's build looked bigger/older that what Campion is but thus far it's the only thing that fits. There has been zero suggestion that any other Earthlings are on this planet. I think whatever spirirt/essence/being that is talking to the other humans on the ground told Tally to leave as a kid for some reason.

    I think the Androids are really seeing Tally, and shes the one drawing things which gives my theory credence. Tally has just somehow become a ninja (like Mulan) and can somehow vanish from their view. That would make at least what "Father" is experiencing not mystical in nature. "Mother" on the other hand only experiences her non Tally visions when plugged into the 'hypersleep pod' thing, and the computer said there was another user logged in if I remember correctly. Either her maker somehow helped write that program for their ark and wrote himself in, and "mothers" archived memories merged with it to make what it is now, or it's whatever mystical thing is going on..


    Or it's a smoke moster, and a Hurley bird.

    That's why I suggested their might be something supernatural at work here. Maybe a poltergeist that has somehow been able to manifest itself in a physical form.

    Is this show on HBO ? What I mean is if I get HBO thru my XFinity is it a regular show I can watch? I have HBO max but was thinking about swapping.

    For some reason I thought there was one episode tonight, and it would be the season finale. So I watched it, and thought "Well, that's an odd place to end the season".

    But look, there's another episode tonight. But for some reason, it won't play. :(

    Edit: Ah, yet another global internet hiccup. This one impacted google services pretty noticably, but hit others as well. Once it passed, I was able to watch the second episode. Although I don't have any fewer questions afterwards. ;)

    Season finale is October 1. I watched the first new episode this week also and it's getting weirder.

    I started the first of two last night but fell asleep. Let's see what today brings. Who does the lead male remind me of?

    Interesting, I had problems last night as well. My first thought was that it was because I sideload HBO Max onto my Fire Stick, so I actually went through reinstalling and re-authorizing. Once that was done, Max was fine.

    Just when I thought this show couldn't get any weirder.

    Pregnant android and a prisoner infuses himself with the serum and becomes Super Shredder from TMNT 2. It's still interesting, but headed toward the "cray cray" zone for me.

    I am Ridley Scott, producer of the new HBO Max show Raised by Wolves. Ask me anything.

    Perfect timing. Because after watching the last episode, I think it's fair to say, I have questions...

    I'll start with, when did the android necromancer from earth have time to have a secret affair with a giant flying lamprey?
