Tracker Season 1 Episode 7 Assessment: Chicago


Colter lastly had a case in a serious metropolitan metropolis, AND he teamed up with Bobby and Reenie in individual?!

Christmas got here tremendous early, y’all.

Tracker Season 1 Episode 7 wasn’t breaking the mould so far as instances of the week go, but it surely was the primary time we spent prolonged time with Bobby, and that alone makes it one of many higher installments of the primary season.

Exterior of Reenie, we had but to see Colter in the identical bodily area because the individuals who constantly assist him on his numerous instances.

We all know Bobby is the pc whiz, and he can hack absolutely anything, however exterior of that, we do not know a lot about him. And that is been okay since you assumed ultimately we would get some perception into the person behind the telephone, and we lastly received it.

Very similar to Colter, I initially thought Solar was Bobby’s girlfriend as a result of he spoke about her with such reverence. And he jumped on her disappearance with a quickness.

We knew Colter and Bobby had a historical past, one which’s shaded in higher after this hour, but it surely was nonetheless good to know Colter would come actually in a single day to assist Bobby when he referred to as.

Solar Mai’s disappearance was mysterious and, at first, did not make sense till it got here out that she and her mom have been coping with immigration points.

It needed to be unbelievably scary and demanding to take care of that, particularly once you should not have the means to rent the most effective of the most effective relating to the authorized aspect of the state of affairs.

So typically, individuals cannot afford ample illustration and discover themselves in worse form due to it.

Solar and her mom trusted somebody who was a scammer, which price them extra than simply cash.

George/Marv was a scammer by and thru, and it is no marvel he needed to change round and bounce round cities when he inevitably discovered himself in conditions he could not rip-off his method out of.

However the set-up for him was excellent, as he tricked unsuspecting individuals on their final ropes into accepting his assist after which fed them to a pack of vicious mortgage sharks.

Poor Solar wasn’t attempting to do one thing insidious or evil, but she discovered herself on this unattainable state of affairs with extremely harmful individuals.

We all know that Colter likes to work by himself, for numerous causes, and that it really works for him, however all through Tracker Season 1 Episode 6 and this hour, it was emphasised simply how a lot he likes to be alone and do issues alone.

Many individuals have a ‘if you’d like one thing accomplished proper, do it your self’ mindset, and whereas which will play a bit in Colter’s thoughts, his want to work alone appears way more rooted in how his dad raised him.

He was raised to look out for himself. He makes use of these expertise to assist others, however he is not likely attempting to increase his social circle or make deep-seated connections that might include having an on a regular basis accomplice.

All of the individuals in Colter’s life who’re, on the very least, acquaintances are stored a substantial distance away, whether or not that be by precise bodily or emotional distance.

Colter has plenty of unresolved trauma from his childhood, and he additionally has a substantial quantity of doubt that is been festering inside him for years. And all these issues inform the individual we see immediately.

I additionally assume Colter desires to keep away from taking over the accountability of somebody getting harm or needing to shift his personal consideration away from the duty at hand.

It is not about not trusting Bobby or not wanting his assist all through the Solar case; it is Colter’s want to maintain him secure. He’ll put himself at risk, however he cannot be anxious about Bobby being at risk.

Finally, although, this was a case the place Bobby was not solely exceptionally useful however finally the one who helped each Colter and Solar get out of that constructing.

Generally, it takes the entire hour to determine who the dangerous man is or what their motive could also be. However we discovered fairly early that the mortgage sharks have been those who took Solar, after which it simply grew to become a matter of the place she was being held and the right way to get her again.

Understanding she was a considerably completed MMA fighter, I ought to have seen that angle coming within the type of unlawful combating, however alas, I didn’t.

What do mortgage sharks need on the finish of the day? They need their cash.

By getting Solar Mai into that ring and having her take a beating till she paid off what she owed, the sharks have been getting the blood they have been after.

For one thing unlawful, the safety was awfully lax! Colter and Bobby received inside comparatively shortly, and Colter even received into the locker room with out anybody getting in his method.

Solar was so scared, and if Colter hadn’t dropped the Bobby card, I am undecided she would have left with him as a result of she genuinely believed that when she paid her dues, she could be free to go.

She in all probability purchased that lie as a result of it got here from Artwork.

I really like a last-second twist, and Artwork being the large boss was definitely that!

He appeared like a good man when Colter and Bobby first met him at his health club, and he is the one who instructed them about Solar’s visa points, which on reflection was idiotic contemplating that is what ultimately led them to him.

Would they’ve gotten there ultimately? Absolutely. However he definitely helped velocity up the timeline.

This can be essentially the most motion we have seen Colter have interaction in throughout Tracker Season 1, not less than relating to combating scenes that lasted quite a lot of seconds. He received some good beatdowns on these guys, and he did not get shot or stabbed or maimed.

He walked away with a bruised noggin, however that is all in a day’s work for Colter Shaw.

I wasn’t even excited about the implications for Solar and her mom if ever title was introduced up in all of the inevitable fallout from the unlawful combating. She was there in opposition to her will, but it surely would not have helped her case.

It was so fascinating to see Colter be the one to take an opportunity on the finish of Tracker Season 1 Episode 6 and ask Billie out for dinner solely to be rebuffed, after which see Colter rebuff Bobby and Reenie.

Bobby: What?
Reenie: A lone wolf’s gonna lone wolf.

Colter places up these intense boundaries for his personal good and for what I assume he believes is the great of others. However I nearly marvel if he realizes how a lot these individuals care about him.

I do know he likes to maintain individuals at arm’s size as a result of that works for him, however does he see how a lot they worth him? And on the flip aspect, do they see how a lot he values them?

I do know this can be a procedural, but when I received a complete hour of Colter simply diving into the stuff from his previous, with everybody within the flesh serving to him get solutions and in addition simply being there for him as he navigates by an extended of buried and complicated feelings, I would be a really joyful camper.

Tracker Notes

  • Bobby and Solar have been so cute collectively! I hope they exit for that drink and talk about different issues moreover her web site.

  • I wasn’t even excited about the truth that, technically, Bobby needs to be paying Colter since he enlisted his assist. However I like that Colter did not settle for fee AND referred to him as a good friend. We like to see that!

Tracker is discovering its groove, and the instances of the week proceed to entertain!
