TV show description:
This science fiction drama takes place in the near-future, on an Earth where citizens are under military occupation by an organization known as the Colony Transitional Authority. It’s part of a large invading force of extraterrestrial origin. The unseen aliens are referred to as the Hosts and the Raps (a reference to the fierce raptor birds).
Major cities in this world are in ruin and are now surrounded by incredibly thick walls that are hundreds of feet high. Before the occupation, former US Army Ranger and FBI Special Agent Will Bowman (Josh Holloway) and his wife Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) lived in Los Angeles with their sons Bram (Alex Neustaedter) and Charlie, and young daughter Gracie (Isabella Crovetti-Cramp).
During the invasion, the family was separated from Charlie. When the series opens in L.A., a year later, Will and Katie are fighting to find him. Having gone undercover, Will is eventually captured and identified. Los Angeles Governor Snyder (Peter Jacobson), an elite proxy with the occupational government, offers Will a chance to get his son back — if he and his family will collaborate with the occupational government.
Snyder won’t take “no” for an answer so Will and Katie find themselves faced with the toughest decision of their lives.
Episode #36 — What Goes Around
Will must make a sacrifice to protect his family. Katie races to save the refugees outside Seattle’s walls. Snyder struggles to control a Colony amidst the chaos of war. Bram and Gracie make a big decision.
