In the season two penultimate episode of WGN America’s heart-pounding, scripted series Underground, freedom is at stake and new alliances must be forged in a riveting test of personal will and character. Written by Misha Green and Joe Pokaski and directed by Lawrence Trilling, Cato (Alano Miller) takes extreme measures to prove his loyalty to the unconvinced and impatient Patty Cannon (Sadie Stratton), while simultaneously feigning good intent at Georgia’s (Jasika Nicole) station.
Then, an unwelcome visitor of the past arrives and provokes Elizabeth (Jessica de Gouw), causing her to seek revenge on the man at her own peril. Away from Georgia’s, Harriet (Aisha Hinds) travels off on a mission, and questions whether she is meant to be a leader in John Brown’s resistance.
Turbulence persists back in Georgia when Noah (Aldis Hodge), Rosalee (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), James (Maceo Smedley III), and Corra (Michelle Elaine) make it to a safe house, and members of the group are forced to flee to safer grounds. Meanwhile, Daniel’s (Bokeem Woodbine) situation grows increasingly dire when his family’s well-being is threatened, and he decides to take action by relying on the help and kindness of strangers.
