Monarch: Legacy of Monsters - Secrets and Lies

In another strong episode, "Secrets and Lies" gives us Cate (Anna Sawai), Kentaro (Ren Watabe), and May (Kiersey Clemons) making their way out of Japan with Lee (Kurt Russell) and their journey to Alaska to search for answers about what exactly Hiroshi Randa was doing there before his disappearance and what ultimately happened to him. While building some camaraderie between our explorers, the series continues to foreshadow more than one of them are holding onto secrets which obviously won't stay secret for the entirety of the journey. The episode ends on a cliffhanger for our group who will be spending a little more time in Alaska than they planned.

The flashbacks of the episode center around the military's attempt to use Keiko Miura (Mari Yamamoto) and Bill Randa's (Anders Holm) research into the Titans to destroy Godzilla in a 50-ton atomic explosion hidden from the world as part of the government's atomic testing. Although the scientists are crushed by the result, which appears to have killed Godzilla, the proof of their research gets them the blank check needed to fund Monarch into the future, although new troubles with the government will eventually arise for them as well.
