THE PLOT TWIST IN COUNTY 49 IS MIND BLOWING!!!

THE PLOT TWIST IN COUNTY 49 IS MIND BLOWING!!!

THE DECOY OF COUNTY 49 IS A CONGLOMERATION OF MIND GAMES.

We see a confused government and disorganized police force lose everything in plain sight…

Let me tell you something, we are dealing with people who know exactly what they are doing when it comes to ensuring that their audience will always want more. KIBANDA PICTURES, the production house behind the successful SHOWMAX original Series COUNTY 49, have worked with the best of the best in producing the latest episode, THE DECOY.

As usual, MERCY MUTISYA never disappoints when it comes to writing. The Governor’s office decides to pay full ransom as demanded by THE HIVE. What could possibly go wrong when everything and everyone is doing exactly what is required of them? The transaction of course. We see a confused government and disorganized police force lose everything in plain sight. This goes ahead to show how deeply rooted THE HIVE is and just how weak and fragile the police department is.

This episode confirms what we’ve been suspecting all along. There’s a mole on the government. What Likarion Wainaina (Super Modo) has done is that he has led us to suspect every other person in the governor’s office but the real culprit. The writing, Directing, cinematography and acting is just a complete mind game to mess with the expectations of the audience.

First of all, hands down to MAQBUL MOHAMMED’S (Varshita) incredible acting skills. He plays Chris Komu, he is left in charge of the office of the governor, Okusimba Sibi, AINEA OJIAMBO (Kina) when the governor is arrested and the deputy/acting governor, Nerimah Mkung, WAKIO MZENGE (Selina) is abducted. Chris manages to fool everyone into thinking they are the problem and he does so successfully as he orders a very high level arrest.

However the hero of this episode is Saji, DERRICK KINYANJUI, a young boy desperate to save his parents Malik Maka, PETER KAWA (Uradi) and Debra Maka, NYOKABI MACHARIA (Maepress) who got caught up in the chaos between the government and the people of BWATELE.  He is the shining example of an underestimated hero that no one sees coming. We appreciate this for his character, but what next? Will they manage to get back home?

One thing about Bwatele is that anything can happen between being saved and the trip home. What happens to governor Nerimah? Who will run to her rescue cause now the office of the governor has made it clear to prioritise the lost billions. The next episode will be out and up on SHOWMAX in a few days and I can’t wait to see how things pan out eventually.

COUNTY 49 EPISODE 2 ENDS WITH A TWIST TO IT

COUNTY 49 EPISODE 2 ENDS WITH A TWIST TO IT

COUNTY 49 EPISODE 2

All our questions are not entirely answered but, the writer has given us a person of interest...

Always leave your audience yearning for more to keep them coming back. Kibanda Pictures has mastered this very early leaving us with a cliff hanger in the latest episode, written by Mercy Mutisya (A Grand Little Lie) and directed by Likarion Wainaina (Supa Modo) that as soon as you conclude the second episode, you want to know what happens next.

I will confess, no one could have predicted that ending. We started the journey of this story with Elijah, James Webbo, as the villain, little did we know that he was just a minion working for a bigger fish. What could be better than that? In this episode we are introduced to someone that we only saw briefly in the premier episode. He is not an open book, we do not get to hear his voice until the end of the second episode with only one line. The tension in that scene is so heavy it gives you chills. This specific moment answers some of the questions we might have had when the show premiered, like; how does Elijah have so much information about the government? Does he have an informer? Is there a mole in the government?

All our questions are not entirely answered but, the writer has given us a person of interest.

Without giving any spoilers, we go back to where we left on the first episode. The county of Bwatele is under attack and the acting governor, Governor Nerimah Mkung, Wakio Mzenge (Selina) has been abducted alongside her chief of staff, Debra Maka, Nyokabi Macharia (Country Queen). Malik Maka, Peter Kawa (Escape From Mogadishu) , Debra’s estranged husband, cannot sit at home knowing the mother of his son, Saji, Derrick Kinyanjui, needs help, he just has to do something about it, creating room for more action. And boy is there some cool action to die for. Props to stunts coodinator Mickey Maingi (Mission to Rescue, Crime and Justice) and his team.

The government on the other hand is left in chaos and confusion with the minister having a guesswork of decision making trying to keep the acting governor safe and protecting the citizens, something they seem to have significantly forgotten. However, the national government is quick to action, reassuring the citizens that they have everything under control.

Although his grandmother, Kukhu, Scarlet Sakwa, is there with him, Saji, feels left out and alone in the search for his mother and he decides to take matters into his own hands. It is in this episode that we see a sad lonely child whose wish is to have a normal life with both of his parents.

In this episode we experience the growth of some characters, the birth of new ones, as well as death, revealing the mess that is THE HIVE.
