Season 2, Episode 5 REVIEW

– – Joe, Lily, Emma – –

The episode opens with Joe Carroll shaving his beard. Looking good! He shares a drink with Lily but they don’t talk about anything important.

Lily introduces Joe to the rest of the people living in her house. He seems surprised to learn about the twins, Luke and Mark. An angry Emma watches from the background, but she finally gets a moment alone with Joe. She asks why he never tried to find her, why did he abandon her and leave her all alone, why didn’t he tell her that he would fake his death? Joe says that he failed her and he is sorry, but Emma quietly walks away.

Once again the FBI works wonders with surveillance cameras, and they see footage of Ryan fighting Giselle, and then Max getting on the train. Now Agent Mendez wants the FBI to call local officials in Connecticut.

FBI learns about Judy in Arkansas, along with the missing pastor and the missing daughter, Mandy.

Joe and Emma meet up again, and he apologizes again. He asks Emma to trust Lily but Emma says ‘They are all crazy.’ Joe says he has a plan for them to start over. Meanwhile, Lily asks Mark to keep Emma busy. She wants to spend some time with Joe without Emma lurking around.

Mark takes Emma to a room where they can paint. Emma starts a portrait of Mark and then he walks over and strokes her face. She gently touches his face but then he freaks out and tells her that she can’t touch him without permission. Emma gets angry and tries to leave but finds that Mark locked them in the room.

Lily has kidnapped and sedated a young college woman, and she presents the woman to Joe as an offering. There are torture tools nearby. Joe is disgusted and walks out of the room.

Joe tells Lily that he will not be controlled. Then he goes to the room where the college girl is being held and he kills her. Afterwards he goes to Lily’s room and has sex with her.

Emma finishes her portrait of Mark, but a close look shows Mark’s body with Joe’s face.

 
– – Max, Ryan, and Gisele – –

Max follows Gisele off the train. Gisele calls Luke and tells him about Ryan and Max trying to detain her. She says she’ll hide out at the factory. He tells her not to worry and he’ll pick her up soon.

Ryan is driving to the station and tells Max to not follow Giselle. Of course Max doesn’t listen.

Ryan and Max corner Giselle and forcibly take her to a motel room. Ryan tells Giselle that she needs to start talking and give up Lily’s location. Giselle spits in Ryan’s face and he chokes her.

Max starts to call her FBI colleagues and then Gisele gives up the location of the factory, claiming that’s where Lily and the twins are. Max wants to be Ryan’s backup but he demands that she stay with Giselle and he’ll go alone to the factory.

Gisele is handcuffed, and she injures her hand as she forces it out of the cuff. She starts heading to the factory.

Luke arrives at the factory with one of the guys from Lily’s house. He engages in a shootout with Ryan. Ryan gets hit by a bullet and he kills Luke’s partner before running away.

Gisele arrives and meets with Luke. They run into the woods to track down Ryan and kill him.

Ryan finds a house where he can quickly nurse his wound but Luke and Gisele show up a little bit later. Gisele taunts Ryan and says she killed Max, and Ryan stabs her to death. Luke shoots after Ryan but he misses, and Ryan is able to escape while Luke mourns for Giselle.
