Y: The Last Man Season 1 Episode 10- Victoria Recap

Episode 10, the season, and potentially the series, finale, brings us the Battle of Marrisville vs the Amazons. Beth and Jennifer escape the Pentagon and hide out in Jennifer’s house, while Kim and Christine sleep in a barn. The Culper Ring lets 355 know that they’re still watching her.

As of this writing, Y: The Last Man is a one season show. We love this show and are really hoping someone picks it up.

On their way to Washington DC Hero and Sam find a safe haven. Later they run into Nora and Mack and offer them assistance.

This episode highlights three pairs of characters who are dependent on each other as they learn to survive in the new world. Nora and Mack had a distant relationship in the past but grow closer as they adjust to this new reality. Hero and Sam had a close, complicated relationship before the Event, which magnified their complications. The journey has magnified their differences further, but also reminded them that neither has anyone else they trust. Yorick and 355 met when they were thrown together on this mission like two mismatched characters in a buddy cop movie (#The Agent and the Escape Artist). They’ll argue until they realize their opposite styles make them excellent partners.

Recap

The episode opens with a song and dance dream sequence performed by Ashley Romans as Agent 355. Is there anything this woman can’t do?
