Amazon Prime Video dropped the intriguing teaser for Prime Original, Homecoming recently. Julia Roberts in the lead role looks suave, rocking bangs and a smart emerald green dress. The teaser though is replete with symbolism and leaves us with more questions than answers. Created by Sam Esmail, who was also the man behind the famed TV show Mr. Robot, here are 5 intriguing things from the teaser, we’re sure you’ve missed
- The Empty Spaces
The teaser starts with the camera zooming into multiple empty spaces in a large building with absolutely no trace of people. We do know from the famed podcast of the same name, that the character Heidi Bergman essayed by Roberts works at a secret government facility that helps soldiers cope with civilian life. The background score (Everything in its Right Place by Radio Head) adds to the particularly eerie feeling in the teaser. What do these empty spaces signify?
The fruit makes multiple appearances in the teaser. You are bound to miss it, unless you’re particularly looking out for the pineapples. Our hunch is the pineapples are central to the plot of the show. We can only wait to find out if the makers tell us more before the show’s launch.
- The Dead Fish
Did you know that some fish float to the top when they die? The goldfish in the teaser is also shown steadily floating to the top on its back. What does this mean in the larger scheme of the show’s plot.
- The Hand
Just when you think, that the teaser has ended, a mysterious hand makes an appearance towards the end of the video. Placed against the back of the fish tank, is this someone crying for help? And if it is, who is it?
Roberts, who plays the role of a caseworker in the show asks a question looking right at the camera, “Are you Walter?” Who is Walter? And is it his hand against the back of the fish tank?
With so many unanswered questions, we cannot keep calm until the show premieres on 2nd November 2018 on Amazon Prime Video.
