Ironically, considering her steadfast atheism, Mother becomes a god to the colonists after saving them from 7th place. In one of the final scenes of the episode, a girl Children carry a statue of the Mother in her fighting pose (exactly like the crucified Christ) to trade in the market. The Christ-like image reflected and reversed by Marcus, who is bound upside down by the vengeful Lucius (Matias Varela) with the seemingly dead Tree of Knowledge – can be seen as a sign to both Northern mythology Europe and The Hanged Man of Traditional Tarot.
In Norse mythology, Odin is said to have hung upside down from Yggdrasil for nine days and nine nights to gain knowledge of other worlds (through Historika); In Tarot, The Hanged Man symbolizes an individual willing to put his or her destiny in the hands of the universe to gain new insight and perspective (through the Biddy Tarot). It is no coincidence that all three allusions (to Christ, Odin, and Tarot) refer to faith. The difference, of course, is that Marcus’s allusions to faith in the search for knowledge, while Christ’s alludes to faith in seeking, as Grandma said, “life the eternal.” Here, the Grandma and Father debate about what defines a person’s “life” – or the season’s thematic crux – is delivered in a spectacular way.
The final season of “Nurtured by Wolves” season 2 asks the audience whether humanity’s instinctive will to live (as in, simply to survive) is greater or less than its desire to think, our learning and creation. It asks, which is more human innate? Is the latter really, as she reasoned, inevitable in stopping the former, or is it merely a sign of a species that hasn’t evolved enough to produce in a way conducive to the survival of the former? it’s him? Perhaps the answers to those questions will be explored further if the show is renewed for Season 3.
