With my healing powers in basic tow, I finally shook off the dust on my computer and decided it was time to write again, and what better way to start than a new season of Reservation Dogs – the critically lauded, award-winning series that shows its truly a good day to be Indigenous, created by Oklahoma filmmaker Sterlin Harjo.
Last season, after a rich tableau of characters and situations—some hilarious, some poignant—were introduced, a catastrophic tornado stirred the windblown pot, taking each Dogs to a new storyline: Elora (Devery Jacobs) is on the road to Los Angeles while Bear (D'Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai) picks put the heartbreaking pieces, while additionally Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis) and Cheese (Lane Factor) continues series one-two punch of heart and souls, deftly delivered.
So, in this new season, much like the last one, I will recap each episode for those that don’t have FX or Hulu, and those who do, giving the basics and not spoiling anything too much. Skoden? Stoodis!
