Tonight’s Aftermath is more quiet than the last couple of episodes. But that’s only because the Copelands no longer have to contend with a destructive volcano. Or prehistoric birds…for the moment. However, don’t be fooled. There’s still a lot that happens in “The Barbarous King.” Not all of it bad. Just mostly bad. This family can’t catch a break.

Josh and Karen do find some time to reconnect. You gotta love this couple. They are such different people but they find a way to work. Okay, this is the good. Now for the bad and the ugly.

The Copelands are accosted by a gang of bikers led by a figure from Karen’s past, but when shapeshifters appear, it’s hard to know who to trust.

Let’s see. There are a couple definitions for the word “barbarous” that might make sense when it comes to tonight’s episode.

The adjective means:

1. savagely cruel; exceedingly brutal.

2. primitive; uncivilized.

Yeah, you might want to keep these definitions in mind when watching “The Barbarous King.” Because what’s headed the Copeland’s way are shapeshifters and a healthy dose of family drama. Even more than usual. You know how brutal families can be.

In the process, we learn more about Karen’s screwed up past. The twin dynamic is seriously off. And when Brianna and Dana are fighting, you-know-what tends to hit the fan.

Brianna rocks an overprotective vibe when it comes to Dana. Wonder if she’s the older=by-a-few-minutes twin? Meanwhile, Dana steps up in a big, big way by the end of the hour.

As for the males: Matt’s getting tougher by the minute. He has a moment where he makes it clear you do not want to mess with him. Speaking of getting messed with, nothing good is in store for Josh. When his wife finds out what happened to him and how it happened, she won’t be a happy camper.

On top of that, there’s a mystery surrounding the Copelands that really starts to take shape in an intriguing way.
