the oa


The third and fourth episodes of The OA deal predominantly with Prarie‘s (Brit Marling) incarceration in Hap’s (Jason Isaacs) basement and the prisoners various plans for escape. After foiled attempts at poisoning her abductor and running away, Prarie’s chances drastically increase when another near death experience from a blow to the head sends her back to the other reality and then returns her to the world with her sense of sight restored.
