What we learned/new notes
-We finally meet Roderick. He is a sheriff of the town that the safe house is in. We also learn that he had killed two of the girls that Joe took credit for and he feels like he owes him everything. No doubt that Joe will use this to his full advantage.
-Will Joey ever let Joe in and see him as his father.
-Could this new team leader- Nick - be one of the followers?
-Now that Ryan knows that Mike knows where Claire is, will he try to find out?
-What’s going to be Joe’s next step to find where Claire is? Preview make it seem like he will just take down everyone named Claire
-Charlie made a sacrifice for Joe. Is this an example of how things will be in the future with other members of the cult?
