Finally I have a minute to watch Siberia, a show I don’t recap per se, but instead make a post of some of my questions or suggested talking points. I still missed out on a few episodes due to a DVR glitch but I’m now back on board.
Right now the show is divided into two groups. One group (Carolina, Johnny, Sam and Daniel) left to go to “the beacon.” Because? Um? I dunno. They just did. The second group is everyone else who isn’t dead and they are at camp.
The Beacon Brigade wakes up after sleeping in a tree stump and makes a fire before Johnny decides everyone has to get going toward the Beacon. Sam’s frostbitten foot is somehow better without any treatment and he says he can walk. However, the beacon is no longer visible. Seems like they are fucked. Johnny swears he knows which direction to go, Carolina wants to stay put.
The BB stop wandering lost in the snow TO GIVE INTERVIEWS TO THE CAMERAMAN FOR TALKING HEADS! I mean of course they do. They are still being filmed. Sam confesses that his foot really isn’t better and he doesn’t think he is going to make it. Johnny confesses he doesn’t know where they are going and he might have gotten them all killed. Eventually they come across some sort of tower structure that Johnny climbs. While he is climbing, Carolina notices the Danger High Voltage sign but not before Johnny gets fried and thrown from the tower. It appears he is dead but Sam comes to save him.
Meanwhile the Camp Crew is having problems of their own. Irene has been dying for several episodes. If I recall correctly one of the women, the one who reminds me of Kelly Bensimon, poisoned her. I might be making that up. This is why I need you people, I don’t have the memory to follow a serious plotline this long. The Ukrainian guy, Miljan, has been itching to “put her out of her misery” for quite sometime. In fact last week he tried to smother her and Neeko and the Gang (which would be a great band name by the way) tied his ass up in the second cabin to keep her safe, but then Kelly Bensimon, being the dogfart that she is, untied him because he knows what she took from the revealer. Don’t ask. I have no idea.
So on this episode, the Camp Crew goes to see if Irene has died yet, but that is indeterminable because she is missing. Miljan is missing too! So they all assume he took her out in the woods to kill her. Off they go calling out find them. But what they find is a frozen woman’s hand sticking out of snow! OMG! POOR IRENE! Only it ain’t Irene at all! It’s Natalie! Who? Natalie, the chick who decided to leave when the first guy died. Okay I don’t really remember Natalie or why she left but they all thought she made it home alive. Did I say I am not recapping because this feels exactly like recapping. Anyway these people are crying like widows for some chick that they knew for a hot minute a few weeks ago.
Okay, apparently Kelly Bensimon is really named Esther. Esther immediately blames Miljan. But Sabina says Natalie’s stomach is missing? Because, um that is a thing that happens and then she says THIS WAS NOT DONE BY A HUMAN!! OMG HOLD ME! Annie refuses to leave Natalie’s body so Ester stays to help Annie bury the body (in solid ice with no tools) while the rest forge ahead. Hmm I guess for the moment “the rest” is just Neeko and Sabina.
Earlier, when Johnny suggested they spilt of the BB with half going back to the camp, Daniel said, “splitting up in a survival situation is the worst thing you can do.” And yet now we have three groups. Sabina has a breakdown and tells Neeko that she has a son by rape in an orphanage. While she was in the military, she attacked a high-ranking officer who was raping a girl and got discharged and was not allowed to have her son back. She came on the show to win money to find the kid. No matter how many times they spilt up, everyone seems to have a cameraman, yet there apparently isn’t one on Miljan and/or Irene.
Ester and Annie discover that burying a body is like, hard, y’all and they give up. Instead the make a little stick cross and have a mini funeral. Then someone knocks out their cameraman and everything goes black.
The BB finds its way to some sort of “Russian Science Institute” and they break in and go inside. Apparently there is electricity there. Daniel, who is supposed to be the smart one, immediately gulps down a green drink from the refrigerator. Then they hear a noise! Oh no! Something or someone is out there!
Neeko and Sabina find their way back to the “gravesite” but Ester and Annie are nowhere to be found. There are scary track marks leading away from the area. Sabina says………”I don’t think they made it back!”
So to recap, the um, recap… The BB are in a Russian Science Institute surround by something bad. We did not see Irene or Miljan at all this episode and now Ester and Annie have gone missing. That only leaves Neeko and Sabina at camp.
