Here comes the show­down

OUR HERO Koen IS STEP­PING UP HIS BAT­TLE TO END THE BLOOD­SHED BUT HIS BROTHER Waruu WANTS TO MAKE IT A FIGHT TO THE DEATH

Soap World - - INTERVIEW -

Koen is ready to take the fight to those de­stroy­ing the Hairy peo­ple and he won’t stop un­til there’s peace. But Waruu has a weapon that could kill Koen and won’t hes­i­tate to use it.

It’s taken some time for Koen (Hunter Page-Lochard) to fi­nally get to a place where he can fully em­brace his Cleverman pow­ers and the re­spon­si­bil­ity that the ti­tle holds. But thanks to Un­cle Jimmy’s (Jack Charles) teach­ing he has ac­tu­ally pro­gressed to the point where he can bring some­one back from the dead.

Armed with a new con­fi­dence, Koen now even dresses like a new-age su­per­hero. He wants jus­tice and har­mony but the govern­ment is hell bent on strip­ping the Hairies of their unique fea­tures via chem­i­cals.

Waruu (Rob Collins) is lead­ing this ini­tia­tive be­liev­ing it’s the only way to stop the dis­crim­i­na­tion fac­ing Hairies. He also re­mains des­per­ate to avenge the loss of not only the Cleverman ti­tle but the author­ity over his com­mu­nity and the love of his fam­ily.

For him Koen is the rea­son he is in this po­si­tion and now that he knows the red sap he found at Un­cle Jimmy’s house can make Koen mor­tal, Waruu be­lieves he has the up­per hand.

And he might soon have a chance to try the weapon when Jarli (Clarence Ryan) risks blood­shed to re­claim his peo­ple’s land. Sens­ing vi­o­lence, Koen dis­tracts the of­fi­cers and de­mands a treaty.

Though Waruu agrees, not all is as it seems be­cause the brothers are soon face to face and Waruu is hold­ing a knife cov­ered in the red sap. It seems the show­down is fi­nally on.
