DECEPTION “GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR DEATH” SEASON 1 EPISODE 9 REVIEW

Here’s my recap for Episode 9, enjoy!

Rayburn the creeper

Joanna is in the kitchen at the Bowers home and Rayburn sneaks up behind her and “accidentally” scares her. He makes a comment to her about being safe and not stepping on glass.

Will Barges In Again

Will goes to Edward’s apartment to discuss Lyritrol. Edward says he’s on his way to California to be with his wife and children. Will says he found Lyritrol files on a zip drive that belonged to a hit man who was hired by Robert to kill Vivian and take the files from her. Whew, did you catch all of that?

Oh, hey Audrey…

Edward goes to Julian’s apartment and he finds Audrey there. She mentions the Lyritrol deaths have been hard on Julian, especially knowing 24 children died from it. Edward asks how she knew about the children. She says she must have heard it in the news, but Edward says he never released that information. Then she says ‘Oh Julian must have told me.’ Well played, Audrey *rolls eyes* Julian confirms that he never told Audrey about the children. Uh oh!

Get it together Joanna

Robert finds out someone used his access card to get into the server room and download the Lyritrol payoff info, and he immediately suspects Joanna. He has a sit down with her and starts to quickly throw questions at her regarding her past work history and marriage. She stumbles at first but answers. Later she texts Will: ‘I think Robert is onto me.’ Uh, duh!

This time, Edward tracks down Will

Edward is freaked because Audrey knows about the kids who died. He tells Will that Audrey works for a Lyritrol competitor, but he can’t explain what he thinks Audrey is up to. Will tells him that maybe an extra copy of the Lyritrol results is floating around, and he suggest that Edward goes home, takes a shower, and lays off the booze.

Testing, testing

Mia undergoes tests to see if she’s a match for Haverstock’s bone marrow transplant.

Nicole pops up

Joanna leaves Bowers Pharmaceuticals and is approached by Nicole, who shares three things: 1) Haverstock has cancer, 2) she believes Robert Bowers had Remy killed, and 3) Audrey slept with all of her professors when she attended Cornell.

Joanna meets with Will, and she makes the connection that Ben also attended Cornell. Will shares that Audrey knows about the children who died in the Lyritrol tests. Joanna wants to investigate Audrey, but Will says their focus is on Robert Bowers. He implies the only reason Joanna wants to look into Audrey is because she is jealous that Audrey is dating Julian now. Joanna storms off.

Yay, we’re a match

Haverstock calls Robert and says Mia is a match. Robert says ‘Die bitch! I have the golf club AND Mia’s bone marrow. And you aren’t getting either one.’ What a double crosser.

Dinner for two, plus one

Audrey is at dinner with her boss, Frank. She tells Frank that she really likes Julian, and she says that she broke Julian and now she can fix him. Hm. Edward crashes the dinner. How did he know they were there? Anyways, Edward accuses Frank of sabotaging Lyritrol so he can buy Bowers Pharmaceutical. Then he walks off and Frank tells Audrey that Edward better not find out what she’s done, so she better clean up her mess.

Paying a visit

Joanna tells Robert that she has a dentist appointment and she’ll be out all afternoon. She visits Ben’s sister and pretends to be a Cornell alumni. The sister shows Joanna a picture of Ben in college, and next to him is Audrey Cruz. She leaves the building, and we see Robert has Rayburn following her.

Tread carefully, Sofia

Haverstock meets with Sofia and says if she’s doesn’t give him Mia’s bone marrow he’s going to make sure Dwight is out on parole just in time for the anniversary party for her and Robert. Sofia goes home and tells Mia that she can donate her bone marrow, but don’t tell her father.

Audrey and Joanna show down

Audrey is a territorial bitch! Joanna pops up at Julian’s place, and Audrey comes over and tells her to know her role and don’t sabotage his new relationship. Joanna asks ‘Why weren’t you at Ben Preswick’s funeral?’ and Audrey plays dumb.

Kyle to the rescue

Mia is about give up her marrow until Kyle runs to her and confesses to working as a mole for Haverstock so he can stay out of jail. Mia feels betrayed and tells Haverstock to bug off, and then she runs home to Sofia.

More Will and Edward time

Edward is outside, minding his business and he notices a weird guy following him. The guy reaches into his jacket to pull something out, and Edward hops into a taxi and drives off.

Edward meets with Will again. He’s convinced that Frank has someone out to kill him. Will thinks maybe Robert wants to kill him. Edward has changed his mind, and he’s not going to California.

Mommy’s here!

Joanna comes home and surprise: it’s Mommy, and she’s here for Robert and Sofia’s anniversary party! Mom has Alzheimer’s and is in assisted living.

Joanna tells her mother that she is undercover to investigate the Bowers. She asks her mom to not say that she’s a cop, and to please remember her undercover story. Mom says she’ll try, but her memory is failing her.

Sofia and Wyatt

Sofia has a conjugal visit in prison with Wyatt. She slips some drugs into the pocket of his jumpsuit, and he goes down for it. Then Sofia goes to the anniversary party, and during a moment alone Joanna confesses her true feelings to Julian. Audrey comes by and retrieves Julian for dinner.

Happy Anniversary

Everyone except Edward gathers for the anniversary party. They all look miserable, except for Robert and Sofia who exchange kind words about each other. Everyone heads to the dinner table except for Julian and Joanna. She confesses her true feelings for him but Audrey comes along and whisks him away before he can respond.

Will calls Joanna and says the pay phone outside of the bakery was used to repeatedly call one phone number. He says the phone is in the Bowers mansion and he’s going to call it now. Guess whose cell phone rings? AUDREY’S!

Haverstock confronts Robert. It’s a bit vague here. Robert’s wife died in a car accident, but Haverstock makes it seem like there was more to her death, and perhaps Robert was involved. Haverstock also mention the huge windfall of money that Robert received after Katherine’s death.

Joanna’s mom tells her that Julian was bad news when she was 16 years old and he’s even worse now. She warns Joanna to stay away.

Edward realizes what’s happened

Will tells Edward about Audrey, and they conclude that Audrey cooked up some fake test results about Lyritrol being a bad drug, Vivian fell for it, and Edward dealt the final blow with his press conference. It was all part of Audrey’s plan.

Bow chicka wow wow

Julian knocks on Joanna’s bedroom door. She opens it, they kiss, and then collapse onto her bed.

THE END
