The second story line involves a boy who turns thirteen who lives in a compound somewhere in New Mexico. He is raised for some messianic reason by a reverend and his staff. The boy runs away and is then shot dead by the people who raised him in the compound. An identical twin replaces the boy instantly.
The third story line takes place in Norway. Orthodox or Hassidic Jews (I'm not sure) have a red cow born on their farm. They consider it a sign. One of the Jews is responsible for caring for the cow. I think this was the same group that interrupted the cop and the redhead archaeologist underneath the Wailing Wall. I also think the redhead symbolizes the red heifer, not in purity, but in prophecy of the End.
Based on this story line, I predict this series is about End of Days. The thirteen year old boy also represents some kind of purity, or something like Jesus. The dead archaeologist knew what was to come, leaving the cop to figure it out.
Biblical prophecy plus conspiracy equals fascination for me. Loved everything about this show. The acting was superb, the writing was believable, and the directing kept me on the edge of my seat for an hour. Other specials about the End of Days are being aired more and more on channels like the History Channel and Discovery. Another Jesus movie is coming out to continue where The Bible left off. Left Behind was remade. HBO even has us wondering with The Leftovers. Instinctively, there is a feeling in the air that the End is upon us. 5/5 Stars.
