THE RED ROAD’s season two opener jumps directly into the fallout from the adrenaline-filled shootout involving local cop Harold Jensen (Martin Henderson) and Philip Kopus (Jason Momoa), a dangerous member of a local Native American tribe. As Harold’s wife Jean (Julianne Nicholson) continues to put her life back together in the aftermath of season one’s events, rumours begin to swirl that the tribe’s newfound federal recognition will lead to the building of a casino up on the mountain. With tensions mounting, and Kopus’ mother Marie (Tamara Tunie) arguing vehemently against it, the stage is set for a shocking discovery. By the end of the opening episode an unexpected murder has taken place that hints at the ripped-from-the-headlines topics ahead, including toxic dumping which raises the stakes for all the characters.
In season two every character faces an ordeal: Jean learns of dark family secrets; Kopus battles his conscience; and, Harold must decide where his morals lie. Can they all find a path to redemption?
