Eli has finally found what he’s been searching for, except it’s not his… yet.
“What Eli sees is that this oil is not just the key to saving his family, but the key to saving his name, saving his legacy,” explains Executive Producer Philipp Meyer in a new behind-the-scenes video.
As they collect a jar of oil, Eli informs Jeannie that the seep is on the Garcías’ land.
“He knows there will be consequences because if he goes for the land, he goes for the oil, it will come with a lot of killing probably as well,” explains Pierce Brosnan.
Meanwhile, a young Eli is facing his own moral dilemma while the Comanche torture a buffalo hunter for wasting the meat of the animal.
“Eli feels devastated that these people could even do that to a human being,” explains Jacob Lofland, who plays young Eli.
Young Eli’s next move leaves Toshaway surprised at his compassion for the buffalo hunter, a clear enemy to the Comanche.
Hear the cast and creators break down the decisions that Eli faces and what it means for his family.
