The Lost Symbol - Order Eight

The search for portal and the mysterious power continues as Robert (Ashley Zukerman) uncovers a clue on the pyramid and hopes to use that knowledge to lure Mal'akh (Beau Knapp). Of course, things don't go as planned. Much of the episode is devoted to more clue deciphering, with increasing ridiculousness making it feel like the worst possible National Treasure sequel, we also get Robert and the FBI betraying each other, and Mal'akh quite easily seeing through the ploy. The episode also teases the power of the technology Mal'akh got from the Freemasons, and how its ability to create specific frequencies might play into his plans to unlock the power he is searching for. By the end of the episode, the madman has once again outplayed the other characters and taken one step closer to his goal.
