WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.
Recap of Raised By Wolves Season 2 Episode 5 “King”
Father regains his functions at the start of the episode. In episode 4, he meets the old android who has been awakened as a result of him.
In episode 5, these two androids had an interestingly intimate moment. He chooses to remove the veil that appears to be part of her design after she laughs at his joke. Mother, on the other hand, summons him first.
Mother is the new leader of the fractured atheist settlement after taking out the Trust. Before joining Marcus and his followers, Holly has left a note for her and Father.
She refers to them as her captors, which they are, and informs them that she has been reunited with her family, requesting them not to look for her. Marcus, unlike Holly, does not have any mystic abilities, hence he will not be able to shield one of Mother’s children from the dangers of Kepler-22b.
As a result, she dispatches Father to retrieve Holly. Father, in turn, strikes a bargain with Lucius. He can do anything to Marcus and his followers if the Mithraic assists him in retrieving Holly.
Ending of Raised By Wolves Season 2 Episode 5: Is Sue Able to Hear the Voice or the Signal at that Moment?
Sue races against the clock to save Paul while Mother takes command of the rapidly dwindling community and Father searches for Marcus.
Mother interrogates Cleaver about an antidote, but he simply repeats what the Trust told her earlier: there isn’t one. Sue prays to Sol as each new avenue of science closes in on her.
Regardless of what Marcus and Paul think, she understands whatever entity Marcus and Paul have heard can’t possibly be God. She is aware, however, that the thing is real and has been transmitting the Signal.
As viewers, we are aware that the entity that interacted with Mother and caused the Serpent’s birth is the same one.
Paul is becoming into one of the serpents inside the cocoon. Sue has a vision of leeches swarming around Paul’s cocoon. When she wakes up, she discovers that these specific leeches are found on acid marine creatures and have therapeutic abilities.

Several of them were successfully recovered by her and Campion and placed over Paul’s cocoon. Paul is cured as a result of the treatment.
Sue recognises the vision as coming from the creature. In the final seconds of the show, she is revealed to be the most recent person to hear the voice.
This shouldn’t be conceivable because the Signal isn’t thought to be able to penetrate the electromagnetic field that surrounds the tropical zone.
Given that Sue can now hear it, the Signal was either purposely silenced and the electromagnetic field had no part in it, or Sue has a particular relationship with the creature. Sue swears her allegiance to the creature as it saves Paul’s life.
Is it True that all Mithraics Have Died? Is Decima no longer Alive?
Except for Lucius and the five children, most of the original Mithraics have died. Decima is likewise no longer alive. She is the only one who notices Marcus’s transformations once Mother regains control of her Necromancer eyes.
She becomes increasingly disillusioned and even mocks Marcus when he removes the Tooth of Romulus, a Mithraic relic, from Holly, believing she has ruined Vrille for a false prophet. Vrille reappears after Marcus descends into a crack near a Mithraic dodecahedron.

She is the epitome of a nightmare since the synthetic skin on her face is gone. Except for Holly, who gets to flee, she kills everyone there.
When Marcus emerges from the crevice, he discovers Decima’s body dangling from the contraption that had taken him there. Decima’s face has been ripped off by Vrille, just as he did earlier in the season.
After that, Father and Lucius arrive. Lucius is about to shoot Marcus when Holly steps in. Father eventually persuades Lucius to accompany them back to the settlement.
