Frontier

New Episode Fridays 10 & 11 ET

DECLAN HARP

PLAYED BY JASON MOMOA
Harp’s promised war on Benton begins, and Season 3 opens with Harp lashing back at the HBC and Lord Benton in brutal retaliation for Grace Emberly being taken from Fort James. Desperate to get her back before Benton can kill her like he did his family so many years ago, Harp cuts a path through the Frontier to find them. No element will stop him, and he starts out on a grueling trek which will take him from the snowy expanse of the mountains, across the cold dangers of the Atlantic to the Old World to get her back – and hopefully, the revenge he’s been carrying for Benton for all this time.  Harp’s drive to find Grace is matched only by his desire to make Benton pay, and Harp quickly assembles a new ragtag crew to join him and fight with him on his possibly suicidal journey. 

MICHAEL SMYTH

PLAYED BY LANDON LIBOIRON

Michael finds himself with a target on his back after his successful heist of the HBC. Unfortunately, he’s not the only one – every operator and trader in the frontier is being stripped of their furs and supplies as punishment –and it’s widely known Michael is the one to blame for the wrath. But where others see risk, Michael sees opportunity for the independents to start building a rival empire to beat the Company.  He is a gambler, a risk taker and confident in his steps.  But his own Black Wolf Company is foundering with the shifting priorities of his partners, so he is forced to seek out partnerships with some truly unlikely people to take over Fort James. Already hurting from Sokanon’s absence and from his part in her pain, Michael will make end up making things worse when one of his business decisions makes him complicit in something far more insidious than he realized.

LORD BENTON

PLAYED BY ALUN ARMSTRONG

Having bested Harp at the end of Season 2 and successfully absconding with Grace Emberly in his firm grip, Benton’s sinister manipulations are on full display across land and ocean, as he lures Harp back to the Old World. Using both Emberly and Harp to get what he wants, Benton thinks he has it all wrapped up.  But he may be too clever by half when he miscalculates the temerity of his opponents and his plan twists against him, leaving him vulnerable to the kind of bloody revenge he is so skilled at meting out. 

GRACE EMBERLY

PLAYED BY ZOE BOYLE

Kidnapped by Benton at the end of Season 2, Grace Emberly continues to be held captive by the loathsome Lord Benton. While in a seemingly hopeless situation, Grace does her best to maintain her strength, is always on the lookout for opportunities to deploy her charm and cunning in order to gain back her freedom.  When she finds an ally in Chaulk, she thinks she may have found her way out, but she’s up against a force in Lord Benton.  When he finally reveals his intentions for her, Emberly sees the chance to advance her own cause – but it will most certainly mean sacrificing something important to her in the bargain. 

SOKANON

PLAYED BY JESSICA MATTEN

Still furious over the death of Wahush at the end of Season 2, Sokanon no longer wants anything to do with Michael. Sokanon shifts her focus from the fur trade and its brutal injustices and pours her grief into action, setting off on a mission to free Native women from the shackles of white men in the New World. She learns of a trader, O’Reilly, who seems to be at the centre of the business of brides in the Bay. Sokanon quickly learns he’s a formidable foe, with unexpected allies of his own – resulting in Sokanon pulling even farther away from the people for whom she once felt deep and loyal affection. 

DOUGLAS BROWN

PLAYED BY ALLAN HAWCO

Heartbroken over the unexpected and violent death of his wife Elizabeth Carruthers, Douglas struggles to decide what’s good for the business. Obsessing over the fact that he knows Grant killed his wife, he’s sure of it, and getting comfort from whatever bottle of booze is closest at hand, Douglas is spiralling in his discomposed grief and leaving Josephette DaCosta to worry about his allegiances and his ability to run the company. While Douglas sees more of Clenna, who is now a key member of the Grant household, his motivations become muddied as his connection to her grows stronger. 

MALCOLM BROWN

PLAYED BY MICHAEL PATRIC

After the HBC took what little they had left at Carruthers & Co. Malcolm has no choice but to pursue a new deal with Michael – even after Michael screwed them in their arrangement last season. Malcolm soon finds himself in deep with some truly dodgy and surprising partners at Michael’s behest, challenging his already short fuse and edgy impatience.  He’s trapped and hoping for the best, feeling like he can’t really trust any of them but knowing there’s no way he can do it without them.

COBBS POND

PLAYED BY GREG BRYK

Pond tries to console Samuel Grant in the wake of the HBC raids on Montreal – and in the aftermath of Grant murdering Elizabeth Carruthers.  But he is at a loss, rejected and left out in the cold, because Grant will not confide in him.  Left with the keys to the kingdom when Grant takes a sudden leave of absence, Pond starts making decisions in his stead, and in the process he smashes some of Grant’s cardinal rules of business.  It remains to be seen what happens when it’s revealed to Pond’s lover/boss that he partnered with not only the competition but with men Grant considers enemies.
