Recap of Resident Evil Episode 7 Parasite
We start back in 2005 here, where Albert Wesker works with his brothers for a strict version of Albert, who gets discovered, wanting to clear up the evidence. That he has been cloning himself. Discovered by Evelyn who wants answers.
Move back to 2022, Albert gets to his dim-witted clone Burt who has been locked up since the discovery. The pair look to catch up before getting interrupted.
Back in 2036, Jade is dealing with the consequences of her actions. Needing to face the reality of what she did that got her friend killed. She is locked up as Umbrella want a meeting. The two sides are clearly waiting to go into conflict. Jade is looking to prepare her own daughter for the dangers that would come for her, begging her to plan for her escape.
In 2022, Albert is being pressed by Evelyn who is determined to get the product out and wants to know why he killed Angel. Billie and Jade try to continue their normal routine, which sees the appearance of Burt in their lives. They can see the difference, but don’t think too much about it. Burt doesn’t know how to keep a secret and tells the girls everything. As Evelyn looks to test the drugs closer to home.
In 2036, Jade has accepted to give herself up to Umbrella, if it means the rest of the ship can be safe. Jade has a meeting with Billie, releasing the specimen she created, attracting every infected from around.
Meanwhile, in 2022, Jade and Billie are taken to Evelyn. Taking them to meet their father, revealing that he needs to inject them with blood every day to keep him maintained.
What to look out for next time?
What is that creature on the ship?
How will Jade and Billie escape in 2036?
What is next for Billie and Jade in 2022?
How Many Albert Weskers are there?
Lance Reddick takes an amazing twist on what we have seen from him so far, bringing a comedic streak, which will make you laugh out loud.
When it comes to the two timelines, they both have left the series open for the final. With the infected coming for the Umbrella crew in 2036 and in 2022 the girls need to figure out their future.
We are still waiting for the big breakout in 2022, which is better than being the cliff-hanger hoping to get a new season. Elsewhere, nothing feels as connected as it could be on this side of the story.
Final Thoughts: This is a building episode looking to draw us in for the season finale, which is fine, it has plenty left to answer and the chaos is here. Just not enough is going on in the bigger picture. 2/5
