Harry learns he has a secret admirer.
After tracing the call from “Satan” that sent Carmen Bell into hysterics at Deakins, Harry finds himself yet again breaking and entering for the sake of his case. This time, he discovers the missing Carmen Bell deposition tape—and slew of documents and photographs indicating someone has been following him and tracing his every move.
Vera may have just given the Beacon a taste of his own medicine.
After developing a maternal relationship with Julian—she’s even breastfeeding him!—Vera seems to take it especially hard when Jeffries takes him away from her. She also has expressed concern for where the community is headed with the incorporation of violence into its practices. So…did Vera just do to Jeffries what Julian eventually does to Bess and Adam!? If only we knew whether or not his tea had any extra flavoring…jimsonweed, perhaps?

Julian appears to have been kidnapped!
Following the advice of Harry that the hooded figure Julian sees in his sleep isn’t real, Julian stands up to it the next time it appears. But this time, it seems to have taken Julian with it straight out of his foster home.
