The finale of Season 1 of 'Silo' titled 'Outside' takes viewers on a thrilling journey as Jules confronts the truth about the world outside the silo and makes a shocking discovery.


The episode opens with the immediate continuation of the ending from the last episode. Jules, Patrick, and the nerdy computer guy snap out of their trance of finally see footage of what it looks like outside the silo. They realize that Bernard has probably tracked their location by now. In a desperate bid to escape, they make their way through the trash chute just as Sims and his raiders rush into the apartment.


Down in the bowels of the silo, Jules hatches a plan to expose the truth to her fellow inhabitants. With passion and determination, she rallies the IT team to link all the screens, desperate to share the footage of the outside world that had left her spellbound. Alas, Bernard's iron fist crushes their hopes as he ruthlessly shuts down the system, denying them their glimpse of freedom. A tense game of cat-and-mouse ensues, resulting in Patrick and the tech prodigy getting arrested.


Jules is eventually captured as well, and Bernard offers her a deal. In exchange for her silence about her circumstances, he promises to show her what happened to George Wilkins. Reluctantly, Jules agrees. Meanwhile, Sims discovers that Billings has the Syndrome but chooses not to fire him.


The pivotal moment arrives, and the world watches with bated breath as Jules embarks on an unprecedented expedition into the unknown. In a breathtaking departure from the norm, she resists the urge to clean the display, leaving the silo's inhabitants stunned. For the first time, they witness a survivor, an embodiment of hope that challenges everything they've been led to believe.


However, as Jules explores the outside world, a chilling twist emerges. The beautiful scenery is nothing but a facade, mirroring the terrifying existence within the silo. The episode ends with the revelation that there are multiple silos, leaving us with numerous questions about the truth behind the silo system.


One aspect I particularly enjoyed in this episode was Martha Walker's courageous act of stepping outside her apartment after 25 years to witness Jules' departure. Harriet Walter's portrayal of her fear, panic, and ultimate bravery was exceptional. The tender moments of support shown towards Jules, such as her father and Shirley bringing her food while she is behind bars, added a heartwarming touch to the narrative.


However, the pacing and intensity, in terms of the direction and music, of the first half of the episode felt somewhat lacking for a finale. It took time to build up to the climactic sequence of Jules leaving the silo. Additionally, Paul Billings' character felt underutilized in this episode, leaving me somewhat disappointed despite my initial interest in his role.


With 'Silo' renewed for a second season, I am eager to see how they develop Paul Billings' character and provide him with more purpose. I also look forward to exploring the structure of the next season, as Jules finds herself outside the silo. Will the focus solely be on her journey to uncover the truth, or will there be a parallel storyline with a new hero emerging within the silo? The possibilities are intriguing.


In conclusion, the season finale of 'Silo' delivers a twist-filled episode that leaves us craving more answers. The shocking revelations, outstanding performances, and thought-provoking ending set the stage for an exciting second season.


Final Score- [8/10]
Premiere Date: June 30, 2023, on Apple TV+
