We're nearing the end of the series now at episode 7, Blind Love. All the answers we've been craving are finally fast approaching. Of course, to me all the answers still aren't coming fast enough, but they never do when a show is as intriguing as this one.
The Engman family, immediate and extended, have plenty on their plates this week. Anita (Lisette Pagler) is involved in a less than pleasant situation that causes conflict between the rest of the family as unlike Anita herself, they understand the gravity of the circumstances she found herself in. After being specifically requested by Leo (Andreas Wilson) to be his defence attorney, Inger (Pia Halvorsen) meets with him to determine the details of his arrest. The process is not straightforward and it soon becomes quite clear to her that there is far more going on than meets the eye and she'll be damned if she doesn't find out just what it is.
Lennart's (Sten Elfström) focus is on something just as engaging but not quite as stressful as the other Engmans. It's lovely to see him finally finding some happiness in the form of the flamboyant Solveig (Agneta Ahlin). A little bit of human connection goes a long way, but something tells me this fling will be short-lived. If only he could get back the one "person" that brought him the company he needed, Odi (Alexander Stocks). Odi's new life in Silas' (Peter Viitanen) crew doing his dirty work is a far more bleak existence than the one he had with Lennart.
Roger (Leif Andrée) is finding himself in what could be a blossoming relationship with Bea (Marie Robertson). Of course he knows absolutely nothing about all of her secrets and lies which I'm sure would throw a spanner in the works. After the bombing, he has been a bit out of sorts and this week his run of bad luck keeps going strong. It's only having Bea by his side that soothes him and makes him feel as though everything will still work out alright. Bea has unfortunately got more than a few secrets dwelling right under his nose and she'll have to play a very careful game to keep her true identity under wraps.
Tumultuous times are ahead for humans and hubots alike, with unfortunate events being faced by many. Real Humans is not afraid of taking on disturbing realities, that is made clear this week by continuing to confronting such issues as torture, assault and sexual depravity. I will reiterate that this is very much not a show for the kiddies to watch.
