Dominion Recap: Ouroboros [WATCH VIDEO]
“Dominion” Season 1 Episode 7 “Ouroboros” aired on Thursday, July 31, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on Syfy. Gabriel caused another problem in Vega. Read on to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) Episode 7 “Ouroboros” recap, plus a sneak of Episode 8 “Exiles.”
Previously on Episode 6 “Black Eyes Blue,” (air date: July 24, 2014), Alex (Christopher Egan) failed to separate the 8-ball from Clementine’s body properly. His failed attempt resulted to the comatose state of a normal Clementine. Claire (Roxanne McKee) then used a pillow to end her mother’s burden. Meanwhile, William (Luke Allen-Gale) forced his father David Whele (Anthony Head) into his own cult for Gabriel (Carl Beukes).
In Episode 7 “Ouroboros,” Alex continued to practice his skills in evicting the angel overload outside its human host. He later looked for comfort in Noma (Kim Engelbrecht), his former lover before Claire.
William, on the other hand, wanted his father to become one of them. He refused to kill him in order to “re-educate” him about Gabriel. Unfortunately, his wishes did not happen according to his plans. His father used all his remaining wits to escape his son’s wrath.
“Ouroboros,” the title of the latest “Dominion” episode, refers to the ancient Greek symbol that means “coming full circle.” It is represented by a snake in the act of eating his tail. This time, “Dominion” featured Michael (Tom Wisdom) as he struggled between his wrongful past and current leadership in Vega.
Speaking of Vega, the residents of the new “Las Vegas” panicked over the news that angels were secretly living among them. Gabriel later went to the location of their sister, Uriel (Katrine De Candole). He threatened to cut her ear off if she doesn’t give him a list of all the angels in Vega. From there, he has been hunting for the higher angels, who refused to pick a side and remained neutral between him and Michael.
Gabriel and Uriel have another plan. The banished angel wanted Alex to hate Michael. He told him one of Michael’s kept secrets including the real identity of her friend. It was revealed that Noma, her friend and lover, was an angel just like them. Alex immediately confronted Michael. His mentor told him that he had reasons for keeping them.
Michael later learned that Gabriel also took over Louis. Alex, who wanted to help Michael, succeeded in separating Gabriel out of the possessed higher angel. Little did they know, this was also part of the plans that Gabriel and Uriel have. They finally found out that he is actually the Chosen One.
At the end of the suspense-filled episode, Gabriel told Alex about the real nature of the “second flood” that he has been talking about. The flood is connected to the story of “Noah’s Ark,” but the similarity ended there. He said that the “cleansing” by the angels involved killing humans.
