Silo season 1 episode 7: Who are the Flamekeepers?

Silo season 1

This week brought us Silo season 1 episode 7 and with that, also gave us some of the most important answers we’ve had.

Going into the installment titled “The Flamekeepers,” we figured that there was a larger meaning to this … we just had to figure out what it was. As it turns out, these are a group of people who are essential in keeping a part of the past alive. However, in the process, they found themselves frequently persecuted.

After spending some time with the patient Gloria over the course of the hour, Juliette learns that she was actually one of these people! This is a woman very much responsible, on a number of levels, for keeping the past alive. She’s the one who gave the book to George’s mother, who eventually gave it to George. Now, Juliette is the one who holds a lot of this information.

The Silo has worked hard to keep some of these people from learning the truth about things like the ocean, and what exists on the outside. All of this information is of course valuable, but not all of it really works to answer a big fundamental question a lot of people could have — is it really safe on the outside? That is something that even still, is not altogether clear. That’s the missing link here when it comes to what Juliette knows now, and then also what Holston and Allison knew when they left the structure in the past.

Oh, and we’ve also learned that Sims is in that control room and with that, he is even more the adversary than he ever was before. This allows him to be a really compelling character as we get closer and closer to the final stretch of this story.
