|I like to drink:||Beer|
My recap of episode 1 is HERE. But after waiting a month and a half for the next installment, the image that was stuck in my mind from the first episode was the tall, forbidding forest and dark, imposing cave Hanna was raised in. I expected episode 2 to show her escape and the beginning of her education in the wider world. And it does. The episode opens with Sophie lying on her bed, trying out different filters, while her family packs the car for a driving vacation.
I confess, I restarted the episode a few times, because I thought it must be an ad, or a different show! The rest of this typical British family is impatient with Sophie, and demand she get down to the car so they can leave. Sophie arrives downstairs with probably more luggage than the rest of the family hanna episode 2 together. You never know what kind of situation might come up!!
Just wait, everyone will be glad that Sophie has extra clothes.
Hanna season 2, episode 2 recap: is hanna safe with marissa?
After some more fussing, the hanna episode 2 gets squeezed into the camper van, and the family, Mom Rachel, Dad Tom, Sophie and Jay, set hanna episode 2 for their month-long drive to Morocco and back. Before Erik and Hanna separated, they agreed that Hanna would send a postcard to Peter Olsson at a certain address in Berlin, and they would meet up afterwards. At the end of episode 1, Hanna was helicoptered out of the forest, allowing her first view of anything beyond her lifelong home.
This is a personal operation for Marissa, tying up the loose ends of her past life. Now, Hanna sits in a dark, barren cell. There is also a teddy bear in the cell, propped up against one wall and looking oddly out of context. Hanna is sitting in another corner, with her back to the wall, in order to give herself the best view of the entire room, including the window and doors.
She seems to be out of it, but reacts immediately to voices outside her door. A man and a woman converse. He orders the woman to get Hanna washed then bring her to him. She has her first shower and gets a good look at herself in a mirror. A soldier asks her questions from behind glass. Hanna ignores the disembodied voice. They are obvious questions about her life in the forest. She eventually responds to a question about Arvo, saying he showed her the stars.
She asks to speak to Marissa. The kids are whiny and not enjoying the trip. Marissa sends in a fake to talk to Hanna instead of going herself, but she directs the questioning. Fake Marissa asks if Hanna knows that Erik worked for her. Hanna leans forward to wrap her arms around Fake Marissa, aka Richards, in a hug, as if to thank her for saving Hanna from her murderer father.
Richards rocks Hanna in her arms, comforting her. The guard in the room asks if he should get her something, by which I assume he means a sedative. Richards agrees. Hanna uses that moment of distraction to pull a hairpin from Richards bun and palm it. Too late. Hanna finds a female soldier in the lab, and her test. They appear to have taken a wrong turn into the middle of nowhere in the desert, and now they have a flat tire in the blazing heat.
Hanna season 2 episode 2
Marissa has sent out a platoon, plus helicopters and humvees, to search for one petite woman in the desert. She goes old school and yells for help. After she gives up, she stumbles quietly along, hoping to find her family. Sophie asks for help finding her family.
Sophie trips on her broken flip-flop, but Hanna offers her a hand up. Then Hanna offers her a drink from her canteen. In amongst the murder, ram, theft of lab and single-handed escape from maximum security confinement, Hanna also managed to grab a fully supplied pack with water included. Whereas most of us are Sophie, and lost within minutes while probably having forgotten any preparations. Sophie does get points for stealth and the ability to hone in on help.
Marissa goes home to her family, who are actually her French boyfriend, Olivier, and his son, Benoit. Smart. Marissa goes to the bedroom, where she pops open a small hatch in the floorboards. The girls continue through the desert, until Hanna hears a motor. They bring Hanna along with them. Hanna tries to convince them that her father, an Amsterdam ant, encourages her to travel on her own and that her mother is dead. Sophie holds her hand in solidarity, but Tom and Rachel find her a bit sketchy.
There, she could appear to be within an hour or two of home or whoever she pretended to visit.
Morocco is just too far outside of anything Erik planned for. Marissa goes to a gay strip club to meet with an old colleague, known as Jacobs, who now works in private security and runs several of his own operations. He asks if she wants coffee, and she tells him she gave it up. She informs him that Erik Heller and Hanna are alive.
She wanders through the outdoor market and is overwhelmed by the colors, movement, sounds and smells. The family eat at a cafe and have a family meeting. They realize that no one is getting along and decide to cut the trip short. Sophie spots Hanna looking lost in the market, and the next thing we see is the camper van driving onto the ferry.
Once the ferry gets underway, the family get out of the van to enjoy the views. Rachel apologizes for planning a vacation that no one enjoyed. She tells Sophie that next year she can have the type of vacation she wants, with discos and boys. Sophie goes inside to browse the shops. Hanna is already there. Sophie asks what her deal really is- human trafficking? Escaping a bad relationship with a boy?
Hanna lets Sophie think it was a boy, which Sophie promises to keep secret. Human trafficking is closer to the truth, if you look at the roots of why people want her dead or captured. Tom wants to take a hard line and turn this obvious runaway in to the police.
Hanna season 1, episode 2 recap: friend
While Tom and Rachel are deciding, Hanna spots Jacobs watching her from one of the upper stories of the ferry. She tries to keep her face hidden, and gets in the van as quickly as possible. Sophie did a makeover on Hanna on the ferry. They allow her to blend in with the crowd more easily, too. When the family stops at a souvenir store, Hanna shoplifts a postcard, envelope and stamps.
Erik buys 2 kilos of goose fat, then takes it to the dock at night. Then he swims to Germany. Sophie convinces her parents to stay in a hotel for one night, instead of camping. She puts makeup on herself and Hanna, plus new outfits, then they go out to a club.
She loosens up and dances with abandon. After a couple of false starts, she learns how to enthusiastically make out with a boy. After they leave the bar, the girls sit outside and talk. She says she wants to visit Hanna in Amsterdam.
