A slight step back as far as the last few episodes go, but they prepared us for the war that is ahead, and I can’t wait.
We recap the Apple TV+ series Echo 3 Season 1 Episode 8, “Family Matters,” which contains spoilers.
I am not sure I have been this hyped to watch an episode of a show all year. Echo 3 has positioned itself to have three incredible final episodes. Last week we saw a MASSIVE chess match happen between Prince/Bambi and Tariq (Vicente Peña). Neither of them truly budged at all, and now we go to war. Let’s dive into this week’s episode.
Echo 3 Season 1 Episode 8 recap
The episode starts with us at the camp where Amber is being held. However, she is now tied up, standing with both arms tied to a pole. Of course, this is much different now that Prince/Bambi is holding Momo. Next, we see Momo return home to Tariq, and he snaps at him for what went down. Tariq says that he did whatever he could and played his cards, so they didn’t kill him. Then, Momo asks him to let the American go because she is innocent.
We move back to Amber, who is starting to lose it a little and has flashbacks. From her childhood to her training to playing with a dog, Amber sees it all as she is tied up with being unable to do a thing. We also see the flashback of when she and Bambi were kids, and he had to shoot and kill their father. You start to feel like she is on the edge of giving up or dying.
Back at the camp, Bambi’s good friend Javy, who helped him catch that fish, has arrived. A video is played that shows Amber talking, and Prince is losing his mind because she doesn’t sound well. Next, Javy tells Prince and Bambi that they are on the verge of killing Amber. Now, Tomas is back and wants answers from Amber. He tells her that today is Monday and Saturday is a National Holiday, the day she is going to die.
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Bambi/Amber’s mom Maggie shows up at the Haas building. I assume she is off to find Prince’s father to confront him. She asks for Eric, but everyone turns her away, and now she begins to make a scene. Finally, she tells Eric that things are not good for the boys and they need their help. However, Eric says he tried to warn them, but they didn’t listen. Maggie tells him he has to protect his family.
We learn that we are down to 48 hours before Amber dies. First, however, we see the man get shot, but it’s Amber starting to hallucinate. Then, Tomas gets pissed because the medicine they are using on her isn’t working. Another flashback is where we see how Amber and Prince meet, along with the first time he meets Bambi. As they move her into another holding area, she sees Bambi (we know it’s not real) and starts to fall further into a bad place.
Mitch hands Prince patches to help get them out of the fight by representing the Colombian military. But, then, he shares some insight that this is the only way for them to make this work. I don’t know what it is yet, but Mitch is hiding something from the guys. The crew of people arrives to lend a helping hand, and we find out Prince’s Dad sent them. Next, Bambi and Prince deliver a speech about what the mission is. Finally, they show the team the plan and everyone’s objective.
As the episode closes, we are at a fancy dinner with Tariq, Momo, and the rest of their family. Just like any other dinner with family, it gets a little heated. After dinner, Momo and Tariq discussed what happened outside before their ride arrived. Seconds later, massive gunfire goes off, and down goes Tariq. Prince gets a call that says it’s done, and you go tonight. Prince and Bambi discuss their next move but have a little bonding moment over their careers/lives as we prepare for war.
I’ll be honest. It wasn’t the best episode, as it felt more like we were setting up for the explosive final two episodes, but it served its purpose as the calm before the storm.
