Raised by Wolves S1 Episodes 1 – 10
In the 22nd century, two androids, Mother and Father, escape an Earth devastated by war between militant atheists and a religious order known as the Mithraic to colonize the planet Kepler-22b, bringing with them human embryos with which to begin a new civilization. Twelve years later, only one child, Campion, has survived. As prospects for the future of the colony appear grim, the three are shocked to discover they are not the only refugees from Earth in this part of the universe.
After destroying the Mithraic vessel, Mother brings five surviving Mithraic children—Tempest, Paul, Hunter, Holly, and Vita—to the colony to raise along with Campion. Marcus, having survived Mother’s attempt on his life, reunites with the remnant of the Mithraic as they struggle to adapt to life on Kepler-22b. Campion grows concerned about Mother’s behavior and begins questioning her intentions.
When the Mithraic children begin exhibiting signs of illness, Campion, now openly distrustful of Mother, becomes convinced the android is trying to poison the new members of the settlement and leads an escape attempt. Desperate to save their son, Paul, from Mother’s clutches, Marcus and Sue grow increasingly frustrated with Ambrose’s indecision and his refusal to authorize a rescue mission. Father finds all of the escaped children except for Paul, who became separated from the group. While Mother searches for Paul, he falls down a shaft.
Concerned for their prospects for survival after he and Mother eventually cease to function, Father attempts to teach Campion and the Mithraic children to hunt the strange creatures that have suddenly appeared near the settlement. Tempest grows increasingly hostile toward Mother over the android’s obsessive interest in her pregnancy. Tensions between Marcus and Ambrose come to a head when the Mithraic discover an ancient relic, believed by them to be the fulfillment of a Mithraic prophecy, and dissension arises among the order as to whether the group should remain at the artifact or rescue the children.
Now leader of the Mithraic, Marcus leads Sue and the rest of the order on a rescue mission, encountering a surprising new ally along the way. Campion and Paul grow to trust one another as they discover a potential new food source for the colony. While Mother discovers hidden memories within her memory banks that reveal the full import of her mission, Tempest’s despair reaches the breaking point. As the Mithraic draw close to the settlement, Marcus is haunted by a series of bizarre visions.
Mother’s prolonged absences from the settlement, spent interacting with a digital projection of her creator in the Mithraic simulator, threaten the safety of the colony. Marcus’s plan to destroy Mother while she is plugged into the simulator goes horribly wrong. When Sue leads a Mithraic assault on the settlement, each of the Mithraic children are forced to reveal their true loyalties, culminating in game-changing consequences for Mother, Father, and Campion.
With Mother held captive and powerless by the Mithraic and Father reprogrammed, Campion is forced to choose whether to resist the Mithraic or ally himself with them. Marcus is disturbed to discover that Mother is aware of his true identity. Campion begins experiencing visions of Tally. As he attempts to destroy Mother once and for all, Marcus finds himself grappling with a tenuous hold on his leadership of the Mithraic, his relationships with both Sue and Paul, and his own sanity.
Marcus’ erratic personality shifts push those closest to him away. Mother is confronted with shocking news that will change her entire existence. The Mithraic children make their own choices.
Hunter digs further into Father’s programming as the Mithraic grow increasingly concerned over Marcus’ behavior. Mother searches for a safe place, and ends up confronting Sue. Tempest confronts her demons. Marcus is left alone to meet his fate.
Mother, Father, Sue and the Children search for a more inhabitable place for the Mother’s baby. Paul continues to hear a voice like the one that drove Marcus insane; it reveals to him that Marcus and Sue are impostors so Paul shoots Sue. Mother finally gives birth and finds it’s not a humanoid but a leech-like flying snake. She is disappointed and acknowledges her pregnancy did not have anything to do with her creator’s programming but by infection. Mother and Father discover that there were humans on the planet and suspect that the creatures they have been hunting are devolved humans that were somehow introduced to Kepler-22b. A deranged Marcus kills a scouting team of Atheists as an Atheist ship arrives. Father and Mother attempt suicide with the snake-like baby to protect their human children. However, they land in the planet’s Tropical Zone; the fast-growing snake baby escapes and flies away.
