The last episode of The Chosen’s season 1 ties different storylines nicely as well as foreshadowing new subplots for season 2.
We’re introduced to the famous woman at the well, Photina (Vanessa De Silvio). Rather than showing just the scene of her conversation with Jesus, the writers of the show give her a background story that is related and easy to connect with.
Photina is going through a midlife crisis – she is ostracized by her community, is filing for a divorce from her current husband and is in search of the meaning of her life.
Like every other character Jesus comes in contact with, we see sheer joy light up her face when He reveals Himself to her.
Nicodemus, on the other hand, is debating whether he should take up Jesus’ offer or go back to Jerusalem and continue his life as a rabbi.
It’s quite refreshing to see The Chosen depict the internal struggle Nicodemus goes through as it is the same struggle everyone goes through when they decide to leave everything to become a true disciple of Christ.
One thing you can’t miss in this episode is the healing of Peter’s mother-in-law. From episode 4, the writers had been building up to this miracle and the scene, although short, is heartwarming and above all, it shows the kindness and love of Jesus.

Please read our review of The Chosen’s Ep 7, Indescribable Compassion
Time like air is boundless, existing independent of us Helping us take note, employing us To nurture after our to-do-list Yet reminding us the risk of not being of not seeing The thought of it as illusion only makes bold the impact on our vision An endless circle Old enough to seal life’s chronicles Yet does nothing to change it The only certified entity to bridge it.
Love like the sea, is deep Accommodating everything cold and warm-blooded Not seeking its own way Needs nothing external to become Countless questions on its existence Unending thoughts on its purpose And like the absence of peace Making monsters of those who go by without it The true essence of its fragrance waiting always on those who have gone past feeling to becoming love.
Death, what happens when you’re busy making other plans Claiming more lives with its rude interruption The least talked about of all three Yet with each blow comes a string of thought on time and love Each seized breath a trail of shadows to your canvas With more questions than answers How much time is left? Is love evident? What next after death?
