The Great North Season 2 Episode 11 Recap
The Great North season 2 episode 11 went on to show the different emotional and comedic levels with a loving story between Wolf and Moon, the oldest and youngest of the Tobin house, and a downright hilarious moment from Honeybee.
Episode 11 covered two stories, one showing Honeybee’s struggles with the Eagle or Councilperson, Toby, and another one showing Wolf finding out about the youngest, Moon’s attendance in a divorce trauma therapy group at his school to get a cone of ice cream. The moment of the Beef Tobin, his personal trauma, and Toby the eagle, where a flashback of him debating the bird for the city council seat was hilarious. At one end Honeybee attempts to find a way to get back her mitten, which was taken by Toby, as she tried to reason with his owner and fellow council member about it. However, in the end, she realizes just how much Roy, Toby’s handler, meant to him.
On the other side of the episode, more of Wolf’s background and the story is introduced. It introduces and creates an understanding of Wolf’s guilt that he’s carried around since his mother’s affair was with a person at the dance company he used to attend. The unique twist is that it is Moon who gets Wolf out of his denial and towards accepting that it is not his fault and that he was nothing more than a child.
The episode conveyed a simple yet easily forgotten message that children even if they are in their teens can feel like the divorce was caused because they were at fault when it isn’t.
