A few weeks ago, we shared the ins and outs of Serial Box and Remade. Then we unveiled the covers for the upcoming episodes. Last week, we reviewed S01E04. Come back weekly for ongoing reviews of your new favorite way to consume YA fiction.
I say week after week that I love each of the characters even more than the others but the reality is each of the characters is so well written that you can't help but love all of them.
This week we get to know Umta, the one survivor who seems to have more knowledge than the others. At the end of the episode, we aren't any closer to understanding more about why but we do learn the story of her life and subsequent death. As in each previous instance, her life shaped the unique skills she brings to the team and her death is just as tragic.
When tragedy strikes, we also learn the importance of listening to your elders.

You live. You love. You die. Now RUN. ReMade.
Every minute, 108 people die.
On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers.
Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival.
Awakened in a post-apocalyptic world and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure.
ReMade will unfold across 15 episodes. "Home, Perilous Home" is the third episode.
Even in a group of misfits, Umta sticks out. An adult with more history than any of the youths around her can possibly imagine, she knows about survival – and suffering. Brought back and remade seemingly to take care of the helpless children around her, she plays the mysterious guide and hunter with skill…but despite her knowledge, she is just as vulnerable as all the rest when the caretakers make their long-dreaded return.
