I've been a week behind on this show, last night I watched the 6/18 episode "Proposal" and I have to say it's getting better and better as it goes on. Definitely holding my interest far more than the first two episodes when I had doubts it could deliver a story at all. @Chaos Theory is sooo right, "Well isn't this awkward" would have been a perfect episode title: Noah and Anna in the garage, Issac and Noah in the alley, Noah walking around the corner just as Augustus gets down on one knee, even that ladies comment to Justina about Johan marrying a Funk (trigger Justinas spidey sense that her suspicion that Anna isn't on the up and up is right after all).
The only one who has a chance to escape from this and live a normal Mennonite life is Tina and I'm rooting for her. And maybe Abel, other than showing up when Noah meets with Valerie neither the police or the cartel have anything on him. And damn but Anna is smart and quick and ruthless, buying her old farm, conspiring with Johan's father to give it to the kids, knowing when to lie and when to keep quiet, knowing when to threaten and not shying away from it and coming up with ideas on the fly like the drug smuggling in the tires and the story spin when Augustus caught her sleeping. Noah stumbled his way through being a double agent but if Anna really wanted she could be the cartel and run the whole show. Not saying she likes it, she still shows that vulnerable horror in her face when she's alone but she sure does do a good job at it.
I'm really looking forward to the last few episodes, can Tina both stay in the dark and marry Johan committing fully to the Mennonite life and giving up her art besides? Who lives and dies? If the cartel is taken down does Noah, Anna, Isaac or Abel go down with them and does that mean jail or death for any of them? Best case scenario is Anna takes more money from Estrada, he's killed by the police and she along with Noah and Isaac borrow Johan's plan and use that money to slip off to Paraguay to hide and farm in peace. I didn't throw Augustus into that happy little ending because I have a strong feeling (no spoilers just a feeling) that he's going to be a casualty at some point, either killed accidentally or as a "warning" to Anna or considering how ruthless Anna can be she frames him for some or all of what she's been doing. Of course the whole scenario of the family getting away would mean that Noah and Anna could reconcile, that Isaac could give forget what Estrada made him do and that all three could pretend none of it happened so super, super long shot. Honestly though - can't wait to see how this all plays out.
