Turns out that the season 1 pilot wasn’t that plausible after all.

Summary:

  • Tracker’s season 1 is coming close to its end with the finale set to be released next week, and some brand new details introduced in the latest episodes prove that the show’s upcoming season may put the focus on the family drama.
  • The penultimate episode officially brought Colter’s brother Russell, portrayed by Jensen Ackles, to the screen showing that both characters still have to deal with an investigation of their father’s mysterious death.
  • Tracker’s final episode will air on May 19.

Tracker’s next season will surely be diving deeper into Colter Shaw’s family past as the first season’s final episodes unveil the show’s big mystery more and more.

While initially Colter was making attempts to run away from his family issues, the penultimate episode introduced his brother Russell, portrayed by Supernatural ’s star Jensen Ackles, who now has no other choice but to finally unite with Colter confronting the circumstances surrounding their father’s death years ago.

The twelfth episode, titled Off the Books, now goes in a pretty much big contrast with what the viewers saw in the first season’s pilot. Tracker’s first ever episode clearly showed Colter’s flashbacks about his father’s accidental death in the woods that, to everyone’s surprise, had something to do with his brother Russell with the latter allegedly pushing their father to his death.

Though Colter’s dad is introduced as an noncompliant man who had difficult relationships with his sons (it just keeps giving Supernatural…), Colter still couldn’t quite believe that Russell would be capable of doing this to their father anyway. Colter is later on shown being tortured by all the intrusive thoughts about his past while trying to stifle them with work.

Jensen Ackles’s appearance in the show as Colter’s estranged older brother hasn’t only brought some iconic Supernatural references that the true fans were instant to catch, but also has seemingly unveiled some details about Tracker’s most sinister storyline.

The twelfth episode catches Colter and Russell finally sitting down to have that inevitable and hovering talk when Russell makes it clear that he didn’t push his father.

The question whether Russell’s words are in fact trustworthy remains, though he then dives deep into details saying there was someone else in the woods that night, particularly a man who Russell had seen before talking to the brothers’ mother.

The whole intrigue gets even more entangled given that Tracker’s previous episodes witnessed Colter’s younger sister Dory’s words about their mother who hadn’t been completely honest with them regarding their father’s death circumstances.

Russell then adds up to it saying that his mom eventually prohibited him to speak to anyone about what had happened in the woods, thus strongly implying that she indeed has something to hide from the rest of the family.

Tracker’s season 1 finale is set to be aired on May 19.
