Yes, this a recap which means – spoilers!
Weston sees Roderick
In Maryland, Ryan and Parker are talking to Roderick about finding Carroll. They are coming up with a ‘game plan.’
Weston is walking around the sheriff’s office and he recognizes Roderick as one of the followers who orchestrated his beating. Weston pulls out a gun but he’s taken down by other officers while Roderick calmly walks out.
Roderick’s real name is Tim Nelson. Parker pulls up his entire history and she figures out Carroll was his advisor in school.
The media arrives and Ryan holds an unauthorized press conference. He says any follower who gives up the Crazy House location while receive full immunity for their crimes. He says it’s first come, first serve.
What’s the game plan, Carroll?
Roderick runs to the Crazy House and tells Carroll the bad news. Roderick thinks Carroll is hiding a plan from him, and he says he’s on the front lines every day protecting the following while Carroll writes a book and pines after an ex-wife who doesn’t want him anymore.
Carroll starts choking him but lets go, and Roderick wonders if Carroll will actually kill him one day. After Carroll and the followers watch Ryan’s press conference, Roderick kidnaps Joey and leaves the Crazy House.
The Followers are too late…
Carroll sends Jacob, Michael, and Ethan to find and KILL Roderick, and bring Joey home safely. Claire begs Jacob to find Joey and keep him far away from the Crazy House.
Weston gets a report that Roderick was seen getting into a waitress’ car. The car gets pulled over and Roderick shoots the two officers. He’s about to kill the waitress but he gets surrounded by the FBI and they take him into custody.
Time for negotiations
Of course Roderick wants to make a deal with Ryan, and he says that he kidnapped Joey Matthews as collateral, so he won’t be killed by Carroll. Ryan uses Roderick’s phone to call Carroll, and Carroll says he’ll personally peel the skin from Roderick’s body if Joey is hurt.
Roderick says he’ll hand over Joey to the FBI if they let him go free. Nick Donovan says ‘hell no’ to that and the FBI will find a different way to find Joey.
Roderick makes good on his part of the deal
Ryan sneaks Roderick out of the FBI office! The deal is Roderick leads Ryan to Joey, and then he can go free. Ryan dumps his weapons and his cell phone behind (as requested by Roderick) before driving away from the facility. Jacob and his crew discreetly follow Ryan’s police car.
Ryan and Roderick go into a house and Ryan pulls Joey out of a closet. Weston was hiding in the trunk the whole time and he calls Nick and Parker and then heads inside just in time to see Roderick pull a gun on Ryan. Roderick is shot and killed, but Weston didn’t pull the trigger…
Emma faces Carroll’s wrath
Emma starts freaking out and asks Carroll about their safety. She tries to snuggle up to him and he reminds her that all they have is sex, and nothing more. He accuses her of being neglectful and allowing Joey out of her eyesight. He slaps her when she talks back.
Ryan to the rescue
Jacob and his crew head closer to the house and eventually they come inside and start fighting with Ryan and Weston. Michael and Ethan are killed while Jacob tries to run off with Joey, but he’s stopped by Ryan. Jacob runs away and leaves Joey behind.
Carroll’s day goes from bad to worse
Emma and Jacob talk. He says they are going to die soon. Claire talks to Carroll and says she’ll stay and she’ll do whatever he wants, under one condition – don’t try to bring Joey back into the Crazy House. She said she will love him again but it will take time. They start to kiss and Claire stabs him in the abdomen before she’s dragged away by some followers.
A drunken and injured Carroll calls Ryan and says that it’s time for Claire to die.
A woman named Melissa arrives at the FBI office. She’s a follower and wants to take Ryan’s deal. Nick attempts to take her to a holding room but she stabs him in the eye with her hair ornament, and then she is shot dead by the surrounding officers.
