This recap of Netflix Series Raising Dion Season 1, Episode 4, “ISSUE #104: Welcome to BIONA. Hope You Survive the Experience” contains spoilers. You can read the recap of the previous episode by clicking these words.

Episode 4, which by the way has an extremely long title and I sometimes wonder what Netflix is thinking, introduces us to a boy named Brayden and his father scouring their farming fields. They both have powers, as his father roots his hand into the ground and grows flowers from nowhere. “ISSUE #103: Welcome to BIONA. Hope You Survive the Experience” opens up this universe ever so slightly.

Episode 4 brushes quickly past Dion’s (Ja’Siah Young) birthday as if it did not matter and swiftly moves to Nicole’s life problems and Pat’s constant obsession with her son.

Nicole is extremely anxious about her job prospects, taking on way more interviews than she can chew, and ends up in a pit of nervousness, knowing that one of the opportunities could finally land her a career opportunity. Also, Nicole is curious about finding the person who uploaded the ominous photo of the storm. From conspiracies to handling her superhero son, Nicole has many priorities.

Nicole finally tracks down the person who owns the photo from the website — a woman named Wendy. Wendy describes what she sees in the picture: many people running away from the storm and a mass in the centre; she claims it’s someone trying to control the storm and believes it is David Bowie. Nicole is astounded at the David Bowie conspiracy but is seemingly accepting that Wendy’s conspiracy is closer to the truth.

Episode 4 sees Pat take Dion to the elusive place he works — BIONA. Everything goes smoothly until Pat has to take over the tour and Dion randomly sees a reindeer in another locked-off room. His curiosity takes over, and he finds a way to unlock the door to the room by stealing another person’s key card. Inside the room, there are many animals, marked from Iceland, and there are monitors that seem to be studying people around the country.

Pat makes a colossal mistake that alerts the security protocol, and he and Dion have to escape the room before anyone catches them.

Raising Dion Season 1, Episode 4, “ISSUE #104: Welcome to BIONA. Hope You Survive the Experience” ends with Brayden watching a storm come his way. His father tries to use his power to protect them.
