In episode two - 'Trust No One,' feelings run high as we delve deeper into the lives of each character. It starts off with a young Leo, his father David, animus Niska and the hubots, who have since become unconventional compared to their in-service counterparts.
A flashback to an incident around this time discloses the possible drowning of Leo's mother and his conscience choice to save her. Has this marred his future existence?
Leo's current search for kidnapped Mimi takes him to the 24 hour Hubot Heaven, when it's revealed the normal human traits he previously exhibited contain a 'blip.'
Little does he know that Mimi has already been reworked as Anita and resides in the Engman family home, where trust issues develop surrounding Sofia's stealing and the suggestion from Inger that Mimi is the one with kleptomania.
Roger is getting increasingly angry by the hubots' presence. Upset that his wife Therese and her hubot Rick have left with his stepson Kevin to pursue a life away from his intensity, he turns 'Äkta människor' supporter.
His frustration of being kept away by his family makes for a comical moment when he says to his neighbour Inger, "I can't just buy a Kevin!"
I actually thought from the first episode that Leo was human because of his memories of Mimi as a young child. And even in the second episode, a flashback about himself as a young boy calling out for his Mom as she was drowning made me believe he was human. It was a surprise to realize as he lost his energy and had to reboot that he was hubot, after all. What a twist of event! How can a hubot grow up?
