It's been a long wait for S2 of Frontier, but boy was it worth it! 


Ep. 2:01 -Dead Reckoning 


The opener has all the fast-paced, jaw-dropping action & intrigue I've come to expect from this epic adventure series!  Allegiances change; New alliances are made. Deals are brokered and broken. Loyalties are tested & we've only just begun!  


Our friend Cobbs Pond (Greg Bryk) has a lot going on during episode 2:01.

There is a wonderful scene between he and Samual Grant ( Shawn Doyle) in which Pond is quietly, & deliciously, devilish!

His darker, more fiendish side is also abundantly apparent during other parts of the episode.  I won't spoil it for you, but let's just say, it's a mad world & Mr. Pond seems to relish living in it!

Ep 2:02 Wanted


Mr. Grant & Mr Pond initiatie a Pygmalion-esque plan in order to further their own business & undermine that of Elizabeth Carruthers.


There are only a couple of scenes w/our friend Mr. Pond in this ep, but they are both riviting & revealing! 


"Christ! You've a phantom way about you Mr Pond!"



Admin. note- The Crave TV / Netflix versions are more revealing than the original broadcast

Ep. 2:04 Mutiny 


Cobbs catches sight of Harp & Co in Montreal and sets plans in motion in hopes of turning events to his and Grants advantage. This is Harp though &, well let's just say, it doesn't go as well as they'd like!


Pond - "Only a fool would come here with a bounty on his head." 

Harp - "Only a fool would come and collect it!"

Ep. 2:05 Cannonball 


Tables are turned as Mr Pond finds himself on the wrong side of the jail door &  Mr. Grant vents his fury! 


My favourite Pond scene, from the series thus far, occurs in this episode. No spoilers but....


Cobbs relates a story that is equally heartbreaking & horrifying in both subject matter and delivery. 

The quiet, yet disturbingly maniacal, speech pattern, his facial expressions & gestures.... He breaks my heart & terrifies me at the same time!


Greg told me that the creative team at Frontier let him weave himself into the speech & that he dug through bits of memory & longing to serve up a dangerous heart!


I'm so glad they gave him the chance,, because in my humble opinion, the result is a half written, half improvised in the moment, masterclass! 


It's a scene Greg is very proud of (and rightly so!)  I can't wait for you all to see it. 


Shout out to Shawn Doyle for his outstanding performance in this episode too!

Ep 2:06  Keetom Takooteeoo Maheekum ( Return of the Wolf)


This ep finds our friend Cobbs Pond away from his Montreal comforts & trekking into the Northern wilderness. 


Greg gets to show off his linguistic talents when Cobbs issues a couple of requests 'en francais' 

 

Acting on Mr Grants behalf, Pond hopes to secure the furs Michael Smyth (Landon Liboiron) now has in his possession & the verbal dance between these two characters is delightful to watch. 

Discussions falter however when Sokonan shows up & events take a dramatic turn when an un -expected shot rings out!

But for Cobbs, business is business & choices need to be made! Transactions concluded, or not & then...........

Well, I guess we'll have to wait for S3 to see what the outcome of these actions will be.



You shouldn't judge a man by the choices he makes in business -Cobbs Pond
