Ryan is in the forefront of this episode as we see his relationship with both his sister and Claire in flashbacks. His sister, who seems to have not been in his life, is captured by Maggie who wants Ryan to come to her. Mike tags along as they go and try to help his sister.
Back at the farmhouse, Emma is dismayed to learn that Jacob never killed anyone. She seems to embody the whole gospel that Joe Carroll preaches, and gets it. She tasks Jacob to kill the captive that Paul brought back, but he is not able to go through it. He lets her go instead, but she is recaptured by Emma and Paul.
When Jacob sees the captive again, he is dismayed that he let Emma down. Meanwhile Emma and Paul are upstairs and they seem to have called a truce and in fact tell Jacob that they love him and forgive him.
Ryan goes into what is a clearly a trap, to save his sister. He is caught by Maggie and she has an ingenious way to kill him but after what seems like forever, Mike comes in and saves the day.
While this episode attempts to delve more into Ryan’s past, the ratings for the show are dropping. It could be because of the continued ineptness of the FBI. In every episode, they are out smarted at each and every turn. While the bad guys are truly awesome villains, without the good guys actually showing some gumption well the show seems to be losing steam.
What makes this show interesting and fun is the villains. Even their so called death religion makes a sort of sense, at least to them. Emma, Paul, Maggie and Rick they are devoted members of the Poe cult, and even though Jacob is part of the group, he seems to have a different reason to want to be part of it. He has not killed anyone, and still can’t. In his flashback he confesses to Carroll about it, and Carroll did not judge him.
Bottom line what is the end game? Are there more people waiting in the wings to show themselves? Remember, Carroll had access to the internet for months, so more than likely there are more of his followers out there.
While the ratings’ going down is never a good thing, the way the law is portrayed could be a turn off for most people.
I give this episode a 4.
