“Into the Badlands” stages a tense mother-son reunion on Sunday’s episode.
In this exclusive clip (above), Lydia (Orla Brady) and Ryder (Oliver Stark) see each other for the first time since the Season 1 finale, when she was cast out of the Badlands by Quinn (Martin Csokas).
Though Ryder promises to help her — she is, after all, his mother — the reunion quickly turns confrontational, as Lydia tries to exert some influence over the new Baron, reminding him of the Machiavellian tenets of ruling she’s taught him in the past.
This doesn’t sit well with Ryder, who fumes at being questioned and undermined.
Elsewhere in the episode, entitled “Force of Eagle’s Claw,” Sunny (Daniel Wu) and Bajie (Nick Frost) struggle to stay alive, The Widow (Emily Beecham) faces challenges as she consolidates her power, and MK (Aramis Knight) discovers secrets about his past.
“Into the Badlands” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
