For all the social change going on in the world, Niska’s focus since the bombing has remained steadfast – finding the one ultimately responsible and making them pay for what happened. Though she’s already taken care of the one directly responsible for the bomb, there’s still the matter of the Synth Who Sleeps, the synth acting as something of a puppet master for the terrorist acts that’ve plagued Britain. These acts have deeply soured human/synth relations, making true equality more of a pipe dream with each passing day, but Niska cares less about the position her kind occupies within the societal food chain and more about destroying whoever put herself and Astrid in danger.
On the next episode of Humans, Niska continues her journey to revenge by finding someone who claims he can take her to the Synth Who Sleeps. Granted, Niska doesn’t trust anybody at this point, much less a human, and human/synth relations have made conversations like this all the more dangerous, but in order to fulfill her mission and exact justice, she’s going to have to take the risk. If the worst case scenario comes to fruition and this is a ploy meant to harm more synths, Niska is more than capable of fighting her way to freedom, but even if she does find herself in a precarious situation, as long as it gets her closer to finding the Synth Who Sleeps, it’ll all be worth it in the end.
Elsewhere on Humans, Mattie and Leo visit the Elster Estate looking for answers, while Mia’s meeting with the Dryden Commission is derailed by a devastating incident and Laura and her view of synths are put in a compromising position.
Humans airs Tuesdays at 11:00 on AMC.
