Homecoming season 2, episode 3, “Previously” is proving that this is a worthy sequel with plot points beginning to interlink while maintaining the mystery.
This recap of Amazon original series Homecoming season 2, episode 3, “Previously” contains significant spoilers.
How does Homecoming season 2, episode 3, “Previously” open?
Homecoming season 2, episode 3, “Previously” provides some answers and intrinsically links the story back to season 1. At the beginning of episode 3, our leading character (now named Alex) is interviewing Kaya about a sexual assault claim. It seems Alex was sent to the company to investigate. Kaya wonders if Alex has gone through something similar; Alex recalls the time she put in a claim — she was made out to be a liar and got a ridiculously small settlement and ended up quitting her job and went travelling to get her life back. Alex tells Kaya to protect herself as nobody else will. Afterwards, Alex rings a man named Bob and tells him that Kaya is leaving the company; she tells him to stop sniffing women and she will send an invoice. On the way home, she picks up cat litter and rings Audrey who is tired of work.
In a nutshell, Alex pretends to take on women’s sexual assault cases and uses a fake sexual survivor story to emotionally manipulate them and persuade them to quit their jobs. She then invoices the man who had allegations against him.
Audrey has ambition
Homecoming season 2, episode 3 shows how low down Audrey was on the food chain. Audrey asks Wendy if she can sit in the roller meeting — Wendy is blatantly not interested and doesn’t want her in the meeting. Pam Bailey rings the reception and Audrey answers and she tells her there is going to be an investigation. When Audrey gets home, she tells Alex that she’s going to jail. The department of defence is investigating the company over homecoming. Alex tells her to quit and states she has a twisted loyalty to the company. Alex then changes her mind and tells Audrey they can use Colin as a tool and this is where the two seasons connect.
Tying the seasons together
Like the end of last season, Audrey sets up a meeting with Colin and pretends that Ron will be there; she tells Colin that she has a new role at the company and asks him to accept responsibility; she claims that she’s talked to Leonard Geist about this, especially with the company about to be investigated by the DOD. Audrey tells Leonard that the DOD is investigating Homecoming and that Colin has signed a confession — Leonard calls Colin into the greenhouse; Colin denies the details of this program. Ron tells Leonard that he gave Colin too much control. Leonard wants answers and then he fires both Colin and Ron. Audrey states she will be in charge from now on and Leonard agrees. We now have the context to the strange ending last season.
How does Homecoming season 2, episode 3, “Previously” end?
Audrey returns home and tells Alex that she’s the new “Ron”. Both women are excited. Audrey will be now dealing with the DOD and Alex gives her confidence.
And then the episode ends with the audience introduced to Walter Cruz again, who leaves a cafe with a coffee and enters his truck. As he’s driving he starts experiences flashbacks from the war. The doctor checks him out — Walter explains how he had brain surgery before. The doctor explains that he can’t see a scar. When Walter gets home, he checks the back of his head for a scar and shaves some hair off — he cannot see a scar. Homecoming season 2, episode 3, “Previously” is proving that this is a worthy sequel with plot points beginning to interlink while maintaining the mystery.
