So far, the new season of Cleverman has been hard on the title character, Koen West (Hunter Page-Lochard). His attempts to keep the Hairy people safe have fallen far short, and now Koen’s half brother, Waruu (Rob Collins) has given their enemies a way to turn the Hairy people human…and the oppressed have flocked to this solution as their only escape from oppression.
Koen also received some unconventional training from his late uncle Jimmy (Jack Charles), and he’s learned that his beloved aunt Linda (Deborah Mailman) killed his parents years ago. And when Koen confronted Waruu about it, Waruu slit his throat!
We’ve seen Koen survive worse, but he’s not the only one who has problems. Dr Charlotte Cleary (Frances O’Connor) has discovered that she also has DNA from the Hairy people), and that’s a secret that her husband, Jarrod Slade (Iain Glen) wants to keep hidden. Unfortunately for both of them, Jarli (Clarence John Ryan) has kidnapped Charlotte and he only let her survive because her child is only part human. In this week’s exclusive preview scene from Cleverman, Charlotte tries to keep up with Jarli’s pace in the wilderness while Jarrod takes steps to cover up her abduction.
Here’s the description of this week’s episode from SundanceTV:
“Koen fears his powers are diminishing. Darana is appalled by Jarli’s actions, while Waruu learns vital information about the nulla nulla.”
The next episode of Cleverman season 2 will premiere on Wednesday, July 19 on SundanceTV at 10:00 pm.
