- Plot summary
As Georgia Wells, Beckinsale plays a grieving but ultimately kick-ass widow holed up in an isolated and austere farmhouse in Wales, when a quick glimpse of a waiting room television screen changes the trajectory of her life and grief. The Widow is getting mixed reviews, with some seeing evidence of the white savior trope in the show, which was written by Harry and Jack Williams, previously known for The Missing. To be sure, Georgia prances around Africa, gleaming face and swinging and perfect pony tail and all, like a modern-day Indiana Jonesette, walking stubbornly into dangerous situations unscathed (such as up to trucks carrying gun-toting militia members) and rescuing a child soldier along the way.
At the center of the plot is a major plane crash into the African wilderness. Dozens of people died. Among them was supposedly Will Mason. The crash was written off by authorities to an unquestioning media as mechanical failure. However, that was far from the true story.
In actuality, the plane was brought down by a bomb carried on the aircraft in a laptop by an unsuspecting pregnant woman who is the wife of a Congolese journalist, Emmanuel Kazadi (Jacky Ido), who befriended Georgia as the families awaited news of their loved ones. She drafts him into her search for answers after she sees a glimpse of a man in an orange baseball cap (a recurring motif) from behind during a televised news report of a riot/protest in the DRC. Emmanuel pays with his life, leaving behind a new wife whos pretty ticked off at Georgia about it but ultimately rallies to her side. This is too bad because Ido was a welcome addition to the series. The sudden loss of the charismatic Emmanuel is a jarring development in the plot and for viewers, but Georgia soon finds a new sidekick to replace him (thats not meant positively; she seems upset about Emmanuels death but not upset enough to stop putting other people in harms way).
It turns out that Major General Azikiwe (Babs Olusanmokun) is involved in a corrupt plot to smuggle an expensive conflict metal (coltan) out of the country (and avoid paying taxes on it). The hard-drinking general, now surrounded by the ghosts of the people hes killed, has engineered the plane crash by giving the laptop to the pregnant woman, who was Emmanuels spouse and who agreed to take the luggage on board to solve their financial problems. There was a politician on the plane being targeted who had nothing to do with the Will Mason plot. Its just that some people, including Azikiwe, decided to off Will in a plane crash already planned.
Were not really surprised Will is alive, either. Despite some people questioning it, Georgias sanity is never really a question to the viewer. Its just a matter of figuring out where he went and why. The viewer is led to believe that he was possibly abducted. The reality is that he went into hiding and built a new life because of actions of his own.
This is especially painful for Georgia because, as we learn from flashbacks, she and Will were parents once to an infant named Violet who died suddenly (and apparently non-nefariously) in her crib. Its a death that ultimately helped rupture their marriage. Hes taken to scratching endless Vs on walls where he ends up.
Thus, Will is alive, but he doesnt want to go back home or to Georgia in the end. She instantly perceives this, and she doesnt fight for him. Its over. Loss and grief begin anew a different kind. It all suddenly falls into place for her. The worst is true; he was alive, all along, but he didnt try to tell her. Instead, hes built a new life, one he doesnt intend to leave with a woman who isnt her. After all hes done, hes a stranger to her in some ways anyway. Will explains that he uncovered the smuggling going on at the aid company, an operation being run in concert by the major general and by Wills boss at the aid organization, Judith Gray (Alex Kingston). Shes given a lesbian subplot backstory. Her greed is explained by her own sense of loss, which keeps driving people to make bad decisions. It turns out she was wooed and then defrauded by the woman who entices her out of the closet. Will convinces Judith to let him in on the proceeds and scheme, or else, and he siphons off a greater cut for a craggy-faced mercenary named Pieter Bello (Bart Fouche), who is also part of the coltan smuggling ring, overseeing the mine where the metal is unearthed in the first place. Judith and the major general, though, decide to get rid of Will by urging him to take the doomed flight, but Bello saves his life by instructing Will not to get on (for reasons never clearly explained). Somehow this last-minute change was not reflected in the flight manifest, and, because of the great destruction from the plane crash, the lack of a body did not raise concern.
Adidja is the girl soldier rescued by Georgia from the mining camp run by Bello. The orphan with expressive eyes becomes her sidekick on the run, and it initially appears that Georgia has let Adidja go once she heads back home. However, at the end of the show, the girl turns up in Wales at Georgias side. In between, Adidja tricks Georgia into traveling to her familys village, where she discovers that her mother and the other villagers were murdered. Adidja needs Georgia, and Georgia needs her. Both are alone. Both have experienced loss. Both need someone emotionally to care for them. Their bond is touching, although some of the dialogue is uncomfortable (such as when Georgia compares Adidja to a dog and the girl sticks her head out the car window).
In the end, Georgia leaves the trail of death behind her in Africa, returning to her Welsh outpost, where shes packing up for a new life.
