From an early age, Robert Langdon was fond of mystical literature, including the works of Masons, who have preserved many mysteries to this day. One day an unknown person calls from the phone of his mentor Peter Solomon, whom Robert takes for a secretary. He invites Langdon to give an interesting lecture at the Washington Capitol. The guy agrees, but does not yet know what exactly….
“The Lost Symbol ss 2”: release date, announcement
There was no information about the continuation of the mysterious TV show “The Lost Symbol” for a long time. Only in January 2022, the creators of the project officially announced its closure. The reasons for this decision are unknown.
Recall that the TV show was filmed based on the events of the book of the same name, published on September 15, 2009 by Dan Brown.
Robert Langdon is a young, successful professor at Harvard University. Dozens of students come to his lectures, and he himself is fond of ancient symbols and secrets of Masons. After meeting a genius like Peter Solomon, Robert happily follows where his mentor shows him the way. The urgent call didn’t scare Langdon. On the contrary, this is what the eccentric Solomon usually did.
Peter Solomon lost his son three years ago. Having contacted Turkish smugglers, Zachary ended up in prison, from where he could not get out alive. There was no end to Peter’s grief, but he had to learn to live on. For this reason, Langdon did not ask personal questions over the phone — he only obeyed the instructions of the man he thought Solomon had sent.
Traveling to Washington, Langdon makes his way to the Capitol, but instead of a crowd of people interested in his lecture, he sees a bloody hand with symbols in the middle of the hall. People are terrified, no one could have imagined that such a horror would happen here. But it is not this that scares the young mind of a scientist, but the hand that belongs to a living person. Apparently, it was cut off from Peter Solomon.
Collecting his thoughts, Langdon tries to figure out what this message carries. Almost immediately there is a madman who came up with this quest — he calls himself Mal’akh. He longs to find the lost word, and only the smartest person can help him in this. While his plan is put into action, Peter is held captive with a bloody stump arm.
Langdon’s quest is joined by Peter’s daughter, Katherine. She has answers to some questions, but she is ready to share them only if Robert will devote her to all matters. Mal’akh demands to find two pyramids that are hidden somewhere under Washington. They will become the keys to the lost word that needs to be guessed. The adventure begins for the protagonists…
How long will it take for the heroes to save Peter? Will they reveal all the secrets or will they never see Solomon alive again?
