‘The Lost Symbol’ Episode 4 ‘L’Enfant Orientation’ Spoilers’The Lost Symbol’ continues to impress, and each episode firmly establishes that the mystery drama is better off as a series rather than a film. One of the pleasures has been the character growth, with Ashley Zukerman’s Robert Langdon becoming approachable and lovable by the end of the show. As the hunt for the Capstone intensifies in ‘L’Enfant Orientation,’ he makes significant progress as the titular figure.
After searching for the location of the pyramid, Langdon exorcises his demons by free climbing down a quarry to uncover the final piece of the puzzle. In this episode, Katherine Solomon (Valorie Curry) uses her understanding of noetic sciences to figure out where her father is. And we continue to believe that Nunez, played by Rick Gonzalez, is the greatest breakout character.
Episode 3 of ‘The Lost Symbol’: Brinkwire News’The Lost Symbol’ Episode 3 Review: In the compelling chapter ‘The Lost Symbol,’ more mysteries are revealed: Will the NBC series add to the myriad of Dan Brown book-related controversies? Mal’akh (Beau Knapp) appears less, as he is still hell-bent on putting Peter Solomon (Eddie Izzard) in enough danger. Inoue Sato (Sumalee Montano) collaborates with Katherine and makes headway in determining who murdered Zachary. Unlike the third episode, which had a huge death, this chapter is more of a treasure hunt. With a running time of 44 minutes, it’s a quick and easy watch. There is a tiny tease, but it fades as swiftly as it appears, so any love connection between Katherine and Langdon will have to wait.
‘The Lost Symbol’ improves with each episode, and in an effort to keep the audience engaged, especially those who have read the novel, it focuses entirely on the characters. Katherine’s childhood and relationship are exposed, and Katherine’s childhood and connection are proven to be superior to her brother Zachary’s. He’s a rebel, and she’s a genius. He’s the braggart, and she’s the kind of girl you’d be proud to call your daughter. Her noetic scientific plotlines are intriguing since they provide another layer to her character instead of making her a brooding and sad daughter.
Expect the next few of episodes to be dull, but for now, this one is intriguing and worth watching.
On Peacock, ‘The Lost Symbol’ airs on Thursdays.
