Poe: “He had come like a thief in the night. And one by one dropped the revellers in the blood-bedewed halls of their revel, and died each in the despairing posture of his fall. And the life of the ebony clock went out with that of the last of the gay. And the flames of the tripods expired. And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all.”
Joey finally gets a hold of the phone and calls Claire. For a kid, Joey’s pretty bright. It’s a little strange that he becomes suspicious enough of Emma, Paul and Jacob to run away, but he still believes Emma when she says the police are bad men. Yes, he is a kid and he’s scared, but he flip flops a lot. When Emma first appears when he is talking to the elderly couple, Joey seems a little afraid of her because he refuses to go with her at first. What did you think of Joey during the episode?
From the FBI angle, most of the episode is spent trying to locate Joey. There is a little bit of confusion when it comes to tracking Joey’s location. Mike says something about opening files, so maybe they have access to whatever was on the phone from when it pinged onto wifi but maybe not. It’s nice to involve local police more, and to see Mike and Ryan work with them. Are you surprised Ryan was given a gun or is it about time?
Joe Carroll decides to call in his lawyer, Olivia. Usually he represents himself, but apparently he used Olivia for appeals. Since Ryan is concerned about Olivia’s appearance, it immediately becomes clear that Olivia is going to either be a part of the Joe’s cult or is going to be used in some way. What’s great is that she isn’t a willing participant. She is forced into it out of fear because Joe has sent one of his followers to send her a not so nice message before. Olivia is being used by Joe to collect information and pass on messages to his followers. It will be interesting to see how Joe continues to use Olivia. What are your thoughts on Olivia?
