In this week’s episode, titled “The Reaping”, the climax of the season comes to a head. Claire, Carrie, Mike, and Max try and figure out a way to help Ryan while Ryan makes his move to try and get to Joe.

Joe gets ready for his final mission (which will be that he releases the entire group into the world) but it gets delayed during the final sacrifice. Preston was meant to kill a fellow member but Ryan’s attempt to kill Joe stops them.

Joe is less then pleased when he learns that it was Ryan that shot at him. He sends Jason to find him. When he does, him and Emma start freaking out about why Joe doesn’t kill Ryan right away.

Joe and Ryan reconnect.

Joe is able to get what he wants out of Preston as he finally gets him to kill a member of his clan.

Claire wants to do something drastic to get Joe’s attention (by revealing herself). Max/Mike/Carrie do all that they can to prevent her. In the end, she gets what she wants as she relays a message that only he will know.

Lily seeks revenge on Joe for what he’s done, but Mark is weary. He doesn’t want anyone else to get hurt.

Max tries to get Ryan to open up about his dad and his vendetta against Lily. Soon after, they get a lead on where Lily is. When they get there, Lily is gone, but they follow a trail of them renting a car to try and find her.

Lily gets to Joe’s hideout and sends a group of men in for him. Ryan is able to kill all of them.

Mike gets his opportunity to go after Lily. Mike and Max try to talk him out of it but in the end Mike avenges his father.

In next week’s episode, the climax of the season comes to a head as there are only two episodes left. Joe takes hostage a church and it’s all hands on deck to try and stop Joe from the massacre.
