Episode 7 brings the origin story full circle while building the base for the finale in a satisfactory penultimate chapter.
This recap of Netflix’s Jupiter’s Legacy season 1, episode 7, “Omnes Pro Uno,” contains major spoilers.
As we approach the final two chapters, it’s clear that this is more an origin story than an objective-based first season. Which is fine — the Netflix series has chosen to build a base rather than throw everything at the audience at once.
Episode 7 opens up with Walter offering to go into the mind of a clone of Blackstar, but there’s a risk that he could die. Grace believes Raikou (Walter’s daughter) can help, but Sheldon doesn’t want a contract killer in their group helping. Grace pushes back and asks Walter to find her. The episode flits to Tokyo with Raikou drawing her sword on the streets and fighting a gang. She kills most of them with ease, but then Walter visits her and enters her mind. Walter offers her a financial package and then leaves her mind so that she can finish off her fight.
1929 — prepping for the island
Back in 1929, Sheldon and his crew prepare to venture on the island. The doctor (Richard) cannot explain how the island appeared from nowhere. Sheldon tells him that he is a part of this, but Richard is not interested in rowing to the island after losing people from his ship. Sheldon explains that he has nothing to lose but everything to gain. The captain gives Sheldon three days on the island.
Present-day — the Code is under threat
Jupiter’s Legacy season 1, episode 7 continues to battle with the Code — it really pains the characters in a not forgiving world.
Brandon and Chloe grieve over Janna; they are both understandably upset. Brandon wonders if it is his fault, but Chloe states that somebody dies regardless of right or wrong. After debating who may or maybe the next Utopian, Brandon asks Chloe to be around more, and she says she will think about it.
As for Grace and Sheldon, they argue about the Code — Grace believes it is time for change and thinks Sheldon is trying to control everything. She states the young kids feel unheard on something that does not make sense anymore. The married couple appears at odds over the issue again.
Petra Small tells Brandon that she is thinking of leaving the Union as she does not believe in the Code anymore. Brandon admits he has had doubts over the Code, especially recently, but he remembers what his father told him – “the Code was not meant to make our lives easier. You have to care about people. About this world”.
1929 — the island
We finally reach the island in episode 7 — the story has hyped up this moment since the start.
On the island, Sheldon and the crew make their way through the forestation and wilds of the island. Sheldon sees a pattern on a tree that’s similar to his drawings. After exploring more, they see some foggy mountains in the distance. Walter is scared and wants everyone to go back to the ship, however, suddenly, an explosion occurs in front of them, and a tree shoots up to stop them. And in true LOST-like fashion, Sheldon says, “the island will not let us leave.”
Tensions rise, and Walter wants to leave, so Sheldon tells him to go. Grace tells him they have no choice but to keep ongoing.
As they continue to make their way towards the mountains, they are hit by a sandstorm, and they have to stick together to fight it. When they reach safety, the brothers keep on arguing — Walter sobs and blames the death of their father on Sheldon — he states they should have never expanded the company. Sheldon tries to calm him down, but he wants to keep moving.
Present-day — Walter enters the Clone’s mind
Walter tells Blackstar that he’s going to hack into his copy’s brain. He wants to know if the villain is in contact with George Hutcheon, but Blackstar denies any contact. Walter isn’t ready to f**k about and tells Blackstar he is going to go into his twin, and then when he’s done, there will be nothing left. He claims he is nothing like this brother.
This is a hint — maybe Walter is not as morally sound as we thought? The way he talks to Blackstar here with venom suggests there is more to Walter than we believed.
1929 — the island is testing them
In 1929, the group finally reaches an enclave, but there does not appear to be a way through, but Sheldon refuses to believe it. As Walter gets angry, they are suddenly shrouded by a big wall above them, and they are locked in. Richard gets angry and blames Sheldon for this, and fights him. Grace sees two skeletons that look like they have killed each other — she believes that the island is testing them because since they’ve gotten off the boat, all they’ve done is fight. She also notices the skeletons are a group of six, just like they are. Sheldon states the island wants them to get through adversity, so there must be a way out of this.
1929 — “you are worthy”
And the origin story finally reaches full circle, bringing forth the Union of Justice.
When Sheldon and George touch the wall, white and purple patterns appear before them. The rest of the crew touch the wall together. When Walter touches the wall, nothing happens — Grace tells Sheldon that they need to unify as brothers for it to work fully. The brothers unite, and the wall begins to open, showing a beam of light as it does. They walk through the gap, and ethereal music begins — ahead of them is a swirling monument. Walter and Sheldon’s father appears, but he does not look menacing this time, and it’s not part of Walter’s imagination. The father (Chester) tells them that they have completed the ordeal — while suffering unthinkable losses and prevailing — other people appear and echo Chester’s sentiments and call the group “worthy.”
Suddenly, there’s a high-energy blast, and the captain who is on the ship looks concerned with his crewmates. However, as they look in the distance, they see the superheroes in the sky.
Walter and Raikou work together to enter the clone’s mind — distorted voices overlap each other, and Sheldon asks what he sees. Walt struggles and yells — he falls to the floor. Raikou needs to keep Blackstar’s mind open, or Walter will never be able to get out.
