Things don’t look good for Noah Funk on Pure. His plan to out Eli Voss to O’Reilly and the rest of the DEA backfired in a major way: she was shot and survived. Sadly, the same can’t be said for Abel: Eli shot him in the chest and left him to die in the quarry. Clearly, Eli is a man of his word when it comes to threats; but is Noah?
With the final episode of Pure Season 1, “Baptism,” airing Monday night on CBC, here’s the network’s synopsis:
- Forced to choose between his beliefs or his life, Noah crosses the ultimate moral line in his showdown with Eli Voss.
- And here a few little tidbits we gleaned from watching the screener:
- Eli isn’t done killing
When Episode 6 begins, Voss makes a phone call to Ontario and has a deadly request for Gerry Epp. Hats off to Peter Outerbridge for his performance; Eli is a cold-blooded character I can’t help but love seeing on screen. He’s alway bad news, but he’s been fun to watch. Last week I highlighted a scene between Noah and Eli as the best of the season. I was wrong; their scene this week is better.
- O’Reilly calls out Bronco
In an amazing scene at the DEA office, Bronco and O’Reilly go head-to-head and she spells out his shortcomings in just a few intense sentences. Michael Amo’s dialogue is spare, but when his characters speak, they get right to the point.
- Anna speaks her mind
Anna Funk has quietly been a pillar of strength for her family, and she steps up once again (with words and fresh baking) when danger comes her way. Will her words fall on deaf ears … or make her situation worse?
