Here’s recap of last night’s episode, “Troubled Water,” the Macon 7 runaways Noah, Rosalee, Cato, Moses and Boo are hungry, frustrated and low on energy as their journey since escaping the Macon Plantation continues. Anger toward each other flares as they argue about the best routes to get them to the North and they realize staying together is more difficult than they initially thought. As August Pullman and Ben continue tracking the Macon 7, a simple miscalculation and timely news forces them to a new course of action. Meanwhile, John and Elizabeth Hawkes ease into their new secret life as Underground Railroad activists, but Marshall Kyle Risdin remains skeptical of their actions and he sets out to test John’s loyalties. On the Macon plantation, Tom continues his campaign to impress Reverend Willowset in hopes of securing his support for his senate candidacy, but he is distracted by suspicious activity between Tom and Ernestine.
“Underground” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on WGN America.
