This week’s episode of Raised by Wolves made a pretty substantial pivot and presented the possibility that perhaps the terrifying No. 7 is really a misunderstood, mild-mannered herbivore. This possibility has all kinds of interesting implications, some of which Raised by Wolves season 2, episode 4 might work towards unpacking. But the overarching themes and character dynamics continue to develop slowly, with plenty of intriguing ideas at play and interesting plot elements to experiment with. Here’s where things stand thus far.

Raised by Wolves season 2, episode 3 recap:

  • Mother continued her hunt for No. 7, but upon discovering the creature realized it was a herbivore and thus presented no threat. She instead moved it to a cave near the atheist camp and got Sue to run some tests on it, the outcome of which seem to confirm Mother’s hypotheses.
  • Father, having had his pride wounded by losing a fight to Marcus, takes a risky pit fight against an android named Billy in exchange for fuel blood, which he’s using to nurse that weird regenerating skeleton thing he found.
  • The Trust, using Paul’s mouse as leverage over him, told him that there’s about to be a search and destroy mission for Marcus, right before Paul happens to encounter Marcus and the rest of his rapidly-expanding cult.
  • Campion immediately took a shine to Vrille.

Raised by Wolves season 2, episode 4 release date:

“Control” will premiere on February 17, 2022. The new episodes will air weekly on Thursdays, on HBO and HBO Max, at 3:00 a.m. ET / 12:00 a.m. PT.

Is there a trailer for Raised by Wolves Season 2?

Yes! Here it is:

Preview and predictions for “Control”:

  • The big question revolves around Paul. Will he join Marcus in order to play double agent for the Trust, or be swayed to Marcus’s point of view given their mutual belief and trust in Sol?
  • The other big question is about whether or not Mother is right about No. 7. If she is and it didn’t kill the colonists, then what did?
  • What exactly is that thing Father is nursing, anyway?
  • At one point, before encountering No. 7 for the first time, Campion accidentally breaks an egg. I know this is probably nothing to do with anything, but wouldn’t it be funny if No. 7 was just floating around and dropping offspring everywhere at six months old?
