In this third episode, we see that Carroll has the beginnings of a cult. A man by the name Rick Kesir in a Poe mask kills a man, who gave Carroll a very bad review. Somehow everything seems to be on an escalation, ever since Carroll escaped and caught again.
Ryan and the agents are able to locate Kesir’s house but his wife is there. She has nothing to do with what is going, but she does tell them that he changed over the course of time.
Debra and Ryan visit Jordy in the hospital to get more info however, he refuses to give any info.
All is not well with Emma and Paul, as he attempts to apologize to her; however she cuts him with a knife. Upset over everything, Paul drives away upset leaving Jacob and Emma staring after him.
Kesir is escalating his killing as he knifes another person who gave Carroll a bad rap, the Dean of Literature who refused Carroll’s tenure.
Maggie, Kesir’s wife fools the authorities, as she too is part of the Carroll cult.
Paul kidnaps a woman just so he could make Jacob tell Emma about them. But it doesn’t work as Jacob sends her out of the room.
Once it is revealed that Maggie is part of the cult, Ryan and Mike attempt to stop Maggie from killing the agent watching her but of course they are too late. Instead Maggie and Rick run, however Ryan catches up to them and ends up killing Rick in the process.
Overall this episode, was bat**** crazy just like all episodes so far.
There are a lot of characters in this series that are introduced that it almost reminds one of Game of Thrones, as most end up dead by episodes end. This show is unbelievably crazy and just when you think it can’t top itself, it does! This is only the third episode in, but I am really impressed with the intriguing storyline.
Kevin Bacon’s character is such a tortured soul that he still drinks to numb his emotions. Throughout the episodes, a lot of the past is shown which also helps the story move along. It allows the audience to see how each person of Carroll’s cult interacted with him and how they slowly became addicted to his brand of crazy.
Ok who else knew that Maggie was involved? The more I watch this more I am convinced that each new person introduced is involved. And just how stupid are the police? Like seriously, that is probably the only thing I hate that every person in authority seems to be incompetent and gullible. But at the same time that is what makes this show different and very, very interesting. At this point I hope the police become smarter in their actions, because they are dropping like flies in this show.
Emma and Jacob’s dynamic has Emma being the dominant in their relationship. When we first meet her she has long hair and is pretty much innocent, but by the third episode, we see that she is fully under Carroll’s spell. But with Paul being in love with Jacob, Emma knows this deep down, but refuses to see it. This makes me think that either Emma or Jacob will get rid of Paul soon, because Carroll has given them all a free pass to crazyville and they are all acting out in various ways, such as Jordy killing himself with gauze, which ok that is insane, but he did it.
But the craziest thing about this episode is that Carroll’s cult is attempting to teach his son to become a killer. I admit I feel sick with dread, because the boy is still young enough to be molded, but wow what a crazy way to end the episode.
I give this episode a 5.
