Everyone wants a piece of this hole.

The official name for Amazon Prime Video’s trippy new sci-fi western could be Outer Reachbut you may also know it as The show with the hole. Yes, the Josh Brolin-led series is a whimsical, brooding, superbly shot family drama set on a Colorado cattle station, but it’s also a weird, wild show about time travel. And also a hole. A hole that is a kind of rift in the space-time continuum, allowing humans to travel in time. I think. It is not explicitly explained, as is the tradition with most holes related to time travel. Brolin’s man of few words, Royal Abbott, stumbles upon the hole on his land, and it’s filled with floating, glittering dust that grants him a glimpse of the future if he puts his hand in it. It only gets weirder from there.

The hole is the center of everything that happens in it Outer Reach: It comes in handy when Royal’s eldest son, Perry, accidentally kills Trevor, son of rival rancher Wade Tillerson, and it causes a lot of trouble when it draws the attention of a stranger living on the Abbott ranch named Autumn who definitely knows more about this dump than you let on (spoiler alert: Royal does too). Suffice it to say that everyone wants a piece of this hole.

All of this means that consistently Outer Reach‘s first season there are so many great moments near the hole. The hole is a main character, babes. The hole is life. Actually the hole is time, but you know what I mean. But of all the weird things happening around, in, and through the hole – from people standing around crying, to bodies going in, to time travel – what’s the weirdest? Of all the holey moments, which one is the holeiest? We’ve ranked 15 of them in hopes of finding out. Life is short, let’s talk about a hole.

[A truly wild amount of spoilers for Outer Range’s first season follow]

Episode Eight, “The West”

Oh, you think that’s the hole everyone’s talking about? You know no holes, son! This is Luke Tillerson trying to find the big hole that just disappeared because he thinks whatever’s in that hole (time) is going to be a cash cow and to do that he digs in few small holes. Why his arms didn’t fall off at the end of the day I don’t know. And this is a sci-fi show, so if his arms actually fell off I would have thought: Hmmm yeah I’ll buy that. He dug a lot of holes!!

Episode Seven, “The Unknown”

At this point, Billy Tillerson takes his older brother Luke to see the hole for the first time, knowing that Luke will be impressed as Luke loves digging up the land and making money from it. And if there’s one thing you should know about the Tillersons as a family, it’s that none of them can see that hole and not cry. So Luke looks at the hole, thinks of all the money he can make if he finds a way to take advantage of it, and cries. What to…

Episode Four, “The Loss”

Wayne Tillerson loves two things in this world: clamato juice and this hole!! In that moment, he finally finds the hole he’s been looking for since he first saw it as a kid. He cries! I bet this hole is like Why is this clam man so obsessed with me?

Episode Six, “The Family”

It was only a matter of time before the two most insane crazies on this whole insane show met and sure enough, as soon as Autumn and Billy get in each other’s way, Autumn takes him to the hole. She explains that the hole is time. He is moved. He’ll later have her brand him and swear to kill for her if she wants, and they’ll take part in several sloppy kisses that go with songs like “I Only Have Eyes for You” and “Save the Best for Last.” . This is the power of the hole!!

Episode Two, “The Country”

Here, Royal uses the hole to get rid of the bloodied shirt he was wearing when he disposed of Trevor’s body. Royal eliminates evidence that he was an accessory to murder, but more importantly, he illustrates why lazy people who hate doing laundry should get their own hole.

Episode three, “The Time”


Royal just loves throwing murder evidence down this hole. Now he throws Dead Trevor’s bloody belt buckle – which he stole from the police station no less – into the hole. If I were that hole, I’d put up a “No Bin” sign real quick.

Episode One, “The Void”

Who among us, when finding a huge hole in the ground full of dust, would not immediately put our hand in it? We are only human. As a kind of treat to brave the loch, Royal gets a glimpse into the immediate future, and we get our first hint that this loch is about time travel. It’s very crazy and I hope Royal washed his hands afterwards.

Episode 5, “The Floor”

Technically, Royal Seeing Dead Trevor Tillerson takes place Inside the hole (and is possibly a dream?) but having a corpse scream “Time’s a motherfucker!” at you as you fall through time? This is iconic and deserves a spot on this list.

Episode One, “The Void”


We’ve covered at length how much Royal Abbott loves putting incriminating evidence down the hole, but did you know this hobby started with a real corpse? Royal dumps Trevor Tillerson’s body in this hole in hopes it will keep his son Perry out of jail. It’s a very risky move! But what Royal doesn’t know is that the hole hates the taste of dead jerks, so he spits out the guy’s body a few days later. The hole has other plans!

Episode One, “The Void”

As Royal stood on the edge of the hole after trying in vain to cover it with a cheap tarp and yelled “What the hell!” I felt it.

Episode One, “The Void”


Okay, you knew someone was going to be pushed down that hole. It’s a giant hole that just sits there! But letting someone slip in the first episode? And that it’s the main character?! Shocking! But when iconic weirdo Autumn sees an opportunity to try this hole, Royal says “the world has been waiting for something like this” and then urges him inside. When he comes back, she does tell him she’s glad he came back, so that’s it.

Episode Eight, “The West”


Um, well, a herd of time-travelling buffalo will eventually burst out of the hole, and if you’re not already impressed, I don’t think I can help.

Episode Seven, “The Unknown”


We make life miserable for Wayne Tillerson when he gets beaten out of his mind, but wouldn’t you get beaten too if you, as a little boy, find a giant hole in the ground and suddenly another little boy climbs out of that hole with time dust everywhere and the hole Boy grabbed your legs? Spoiler alert: The Hole Boy is Royal, who jumped into the hole in 1886 (!!) after accidentally shooting his father and came out before Wade in 1968! Does that make it less terrifying or more terrifying?!

Episode Seven, “The Unknown”

Uhhh alert! Alarm! After learning that Royal traveled through the hole as a child to escape the aftermath of his father’s accidental killing, Perry, who at the time has confessed to Trevor’s murder and is out on bail, looks down the hole and says: Cool, cool, cool. Like father, like son. He dives into the hole and the hole closes!! Right in front of Royal!! Nothing Royal can do but cover his mouth and scream because time traveling cowboys are just like us. This hole is a messy slut who loves drama and we should all respect that.

Episode Two, “The Country”

You have to remember that this, the hole-iest moment of all hole-y moments, happens so early Outer Reach. We hardly know this hole, and here we watch Royal climb out to learn he’s ended up in the future? And he’s actually been dead for two years? And some weird shit is going on because there’s huge rigs and people are watching him and military guys and his wife tells him to run because Luke Tillerson wants him dead whenever he is?? You can barely collect your thoughts before the perfect pin drop of Paint It Black begins and Royal Swan dives right back into that hole to get out!! Hole experts refer to this as a hole in one.
