Frontier

Wednesday 10ET

DECLAN HARP

PLAYED BY JASON MOMOA

After barely surviving Benton’s noose in the harrowing Season 1 finale, Harp finds solace and spiritual revival with a new ally. He decides to seek revenge on Benton by undercutting the power of the HBC in the region, sidelining his bloodlust in favour of playing a bigger game against Benton. But on his return to the frontier, Harp runs into trouble in the form of a merciless bounty hunter keen on turning in Harp’s head – and this won’t be the only arrival in Hudson’s Bay which upends Harp’s plans, setting him on a new and possibly even more destructive course of action.

MICHAEL SMYTH

PLAYED BY LANDON LIBOIRON

Michael made a difficult decision to throw his lot in with Harp and stay in the frontier, despite Clenna’s pleas for them to go back to London and leave the wilderness behind. In Season 2, Michael attempts to take up the work of the Black Wolf Company with Sokanon, but comes up short. Frustrated at his slow progress, he devises an audacious plan to increase the power of the Black Wolf while also striking at the heart of the HBC at the same time, but the unintended fallout endangers his burgeoning relationship with Sokanon.

LORD BENTON

PLAYED BY ALUN ARMSTRONG

Recuperating from his injuries sustained at Harp’s gallows escape in the explosive Season 1 finale, Benton is so focused on finding Harp that he doesn’t see a betrayal forming right before his eyes – and by the person he would least expect. Refusing to be outmatched or outwitted, Benton sets in motion a plan to regain his former strength, and makes a couple of important new allies in the process.

DOUGLAS BROWN

PLAYED BY ALLAN HAWCO

Wrongfully imprisoned at the end of Season 1 for a murder he didn’t commit, Douglas gets a second chance from Elizabeth Carruthers, the widow of his supposed victim. Now on track to restore the Brown name and reputation in Montréal, Douglas and brother Malcolm find themselves wrapped up in the dangerous business of Samuel Grant once again, as Douglas’ new patron Elizabeth sets her sights to taking on the most powerful man in the city’s fur trade.
