The Tick S01E05 "Fear of Flying" Recap

Superian gets an alert on his phone about a giant, naked V-L-M that's already reached two hundred feet tall and is continuing to grow. He then flies off, seemingly to help stop the problem.

Miss Lint sneaks out of the party after her embarrassing encounter with Walter, while Tick and the rest of the guests watch the story about the V-L-M on the news. Meanwhile, Ramses and his men drive by the house without disturbing it since they're still tracking the location of Arthur's suit. Arthur is flying through the air but is struggling to figure out how to control or steer the suit.

Overkill gets an alert that the suit is active again so he sets off after it. Arthur is still trying to figure out how to work the suit but he's able to figure out how to use it call Dot. He then asks to talk to Tick. He asks Tick for help but insists he doesn't tell Dot anything but Dot still insists on coming with Tick. She's driving while Tick sits shotgun and sticks his head through the sunroof, spotting Arthur flying in the sky. They help to guide him to head towards a field near a water tower. His landing is aided by Overkill, who uses his equipment to pull him down to the ground.

Overkill confronts Arthur about previously claiming to have not had the suit. Arthur says he only just got it back from Miss Lint, prompting to Overkill to ask if she had said anything about him. This echoes an earlier case of Miss Lint asking Arthur something similar when Overkill had been mentioned. Overkill reveals that the reason he was convinced that Terror was still alive was that he read Arthur's Reddit thread, identifying himself as the username "Gunskull17".

Dot and Tick arrive at the field and interrupt their conversation. Arthur reminds Overkill that he will need Arthur alive to help solve the mystery of Terror being alive. Overkill wants to fight Tick but their moment is interrupted by Dot chiding Arthur for lying to her and putting himself in danger by playing superhero. The group is further interrupted by the arrival of Ramses and his men who demand the return of the suit. Arthur refuses to give it back, to Tick's delight and Dot's disbelief. Arthur declares that Overkill is still alive and Ramses appears guilty, while Dot is shocked at the prospect of this being true. Ramses orders his men to kill them all but Overkill sneaks out from behind and blows up one of Ramses' trucks and begins fighting/killing the men. Arthur and Dot hide behind a car and Dot expresses her belief that Overkill is indeed alive based on the look in Ramses' eyes.

Ramses tries to run away but Tick tosses a tire at him and knocks him unconscious. Overkill reluctant agrees to let Arthur and Tick tag along, as he drags Ramses back to his lair. Tick doesn't want Arthur to work with a murderer but Arthur believes it's necessary to get to the truth about Overkill. Dot doesn't want Arthur to go, lest he become another casualty in her life but Arthur is determined to see this through.

Overkill uses the AI feature of his boat to translate the videos in the suit. They determine that Project Achilles is a weapons system and the suit is part of that. This is why the Terror is after the suit and now they must question Ramses on how to find the Terror.

Finally, Lint is shown to be cleaning up after her encounter with Arthur and when she exits the bathroom, she finds a very alive Terror waiting for her, laughing and asking if she missed him.

The Tick is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.


The Tick S01E04 "Party Crashers" Recap

Tick falls out of the building to the ground but survives with little to no energy due to his superhero level of invulnerability. Overkill takes Arthur's files from him to carry on his search for the Terror. Tick accompanies Arthur home. When Arthur realises that Tick doesn't remember where it is that he stays, he invites him upstairs to stay for the night so he won't be left out on the street.

Overkill returns to his base, where he tasks the artificial intelligence program 'danger-mode' scan archives to try to find out the secret identity of Tick.

Dot calls Arthur and asks him to pick up the cake for their stepfather Walter's birthday party. Walter insists that Tick stay home and not come to the party with him. Tick appears to stay behind with Kevin, a homeless man that Tick had invited to stay at Walter's place too. When Walter arrives at the party, his mother expresses concern for Walter's health and says that his old therapist Dr. Paul is at the party in case he needs anyone to talk to.

Miss Lint tries to activate the winged suit but with no success. Her ex-husband Derek is shown too be living in the other half of the condo/lair. He interrupts her work to say that she needs to buy a new wheel for his bike that she broke. He is able to help her determine that the suit is retina-encrypted and won't come out of sleep-mode for anyone except for the person it imprinted on. This means that Miss Lint needs to go find Walter.

Tick shows up at the party and Walter promptly invites him in, thinking it cool to meet a superhero. He even later asks Tick if he is wearing a suit or if that is what he naturally looks like and Tick appears to have his mind blown by the question. Walter is cornered by Miss Lint, who found out about the party by questioning Kevin. Walter tries to discretely ask Tick for help, since Walter's mother and sister are standing right there, but Tick doesn't recognise her when she's dressed to look normal. Lint threatens to kill Arthur's family if he doesn't come quietly with her. Upstairs, she orders him to put the suit on so she can unlock it. Arthur deduces that Lint believes he is right about Terror still being alive. Lint talks Walter through trying to transfer control of the suit over to her using a manual of notes on it. Walter's use of the suit alerts Ramses of its location so he orders his men to get up and going so they can all go after the suit together. But just as they are nearing the suit, Arthur becomes brave and decides to not give the suit over to Miss Lint. He runs away from her and jumps off the second-story balcony, activating the suit's wings so he can fly away.

The Tick is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.


Gotham S04E02 "The Fear Reaper" Recap

Jim and Harvey arrive at the Crane house with other GCPD officers in search of Jonathan Crane. They find evidence of the experiments that had taken place and the work Jonathan had been forced to do to make more of the toxin. When they go out back, they find a moving scarecrow tied up and upon removing the mask, see that it's the crew member Grady, show is terrified and yelling that "The Scarecrow" is coming. When Jim return to the station, he finds that Bruce is in the holding cell after being caught at the scene of a robbery. Bruce claims that he simply fell in from the roof because he was looking for Selina, so Jim agrees to release him back over to Alfred despite suspecting that there is more to the story.

Jonathan returns to Arkham Asylum and discovers Warden Reed destroying some files. Jonathan has fully embraced the Scarecrow persona and claims that Jonathan Crane is no more. Reed tries to get a gun to pull on Scarecrow but gets sprayed with fear gas and is quickly overcome by its effects. Scarecrow commands him to face his fears and overcome them. Reed begins to hallucinate clowns and runs out through the halls with his gun, shooting the people he encounters, believing them to be the clowns that he fears. Scarecrow then goes out into the infirmary and sprays other patients, claiming they will be his army to use in the fight against the GCPD for killing his father.

Oswald turns up at the GCPD to confront Jim and claim that their entire office is incompetent for not being able to catch Jonathan, with all the media in attendance to document the showdown. But Oswald is also teased for his cowardly behaviour during his club opening. The two then strike a deal that Jim has 24 hours to catch Jonathan or else he needs to stand down and let Penguin carry on his system of licensing crime.

Selina and Tabitha arrive at the same building after having both received cards bearing the message "An Opportunity Awaits. When they go inside, they are shocked to find that Barbara is still alive and has a proposal for them. She apologises to Tabitha for what she did out of jealousy and stupidity. She wants to start a new criminal empire as a trio and shows them an armory of weapons she has in the building. She wants to be the main suppliers for the criminal low-lives that are going to Penguin for licenses. Tabitha refuses to forgive her for the loss of Butch so she leaves. Barbara asks Selina to talk to Tabitha to convince her that this will be good for all of them.

Harvey informs Jim of what is going on at Arkham Asylum and prepare to head out. Jim asks the other officers to help him but they refuse, wanting simply to go along with Penguin's plan. Even Harvey refuses to go with him, saying if he helps Jim, all the other officers will turn against him too and then the new captain will be someone Penguin chooses, which is an even worse scenario for them. So Jim heads to Arkham alone.

Barbara meets with Penguin, who is bothered that she didn't seek his approval sooner. He is willing to allow her to open her weapons shop but she will have to get a license through him, pay a weapons tax, and is warned that he will have his people keeping a close eye on her for any sign that she plans to betray him again. He also asks who paid for this supply of weapons but she remains tight-lipped on the matter.

Jim is attacked at Arkham by some of the infected patients and is chased down by Jonathan, who sprays him with the toxin to induce fear visions. Jim hallucinates Lee committing suicide and Jonathan tries to use these delusions to make him take his own life but Jim is able to fight it off. Jonathan is shaken by this, demanding to know how Jim could do the impossible and Jim claims he overcame his fear. Jim tries to reason with Jonathan but struggles to reach him through all the trauma and toxin. Jim is again attacked by some of the poisoned patients of Arkham but in the commotion, he accidentally discovers that water dissolves the gas and brings the patients out of their poisoned state. He promptly sets off a ceiling sprayer to help the people effected but Jonathan flees during all of this.

A GCPD staff member, Fox, has been suspicious of Bruce taking on vigilante activities. Bruce goes after the gang that had been involved in the robbery but they know he is following them so they attack him after luring him into their clutches. Bruce has trained enough that he's able to beat them and get away but upon returning home he gets into another argument with Alfred. They disagree about Bruce's approach in doing this vigilantism. But they are visited by Fox, who not only reveals his awareness of Bruce's late-night activities, but has brought a gift - a special suit that he developed for Wayne Enterprises for military purposes.

Tabitha and Selina agree to work with Barbara but first Tabitha demands to chop off Barbara's hand in the same manner that she and Butch had lost their hands because of Oswald. Barbara agrees but then Tabitha reveals that this was only a test of whether she could be trusted so she lets Barbara keep her hand and says she'll start on Monday.

Jim returns to the GCPD where Oswald once again demeans him and this time offers the other officers there the opportunity to come work for him. Later, Harvey reaffirms his loyalty to Jim and the side of good and notes that it would require an army to take down Penguin. Jim decides that he should go visit Falcone, since he would have the manpower needed for their cause. Harvey warns him that doing so is dangerous, particularly since Jim killed his son.

Ivy goes to a shop to retrieve some chemicals and uses her special perfume to interrogate answers out of the man working there, determined to find the right potions that will increase her strength. He implores her not to do so, saying it it too dangerous. She ignores his warnings and takes them, prompting him to flee. Ivy's face beings to morph and mutate.

With the help of Alfred, Bruce begins to train with his new tactical suit and mask.

Gotham airs on Thursdays on FOX at 8/7c.

The Tick S01E03 "Secret/Identity" Recap

In a flashback, we learn about how the 28th amendment was enacted to protect the anonymity of superheroes due to an unfortunate incident in which a superhero was forcibly unmasked and his real identity was revealed to the public. Afterwards, the Terror and his men broke into the man's home and killed his loved ones and destroyed his home and livelihood.

Arthur attempts to make up a serial number to confirm his being a superhero but the officers are called out to observe some surveillance footage that confirms Arthur's story about a masked man being the one to kill the men in the alley. The officers identity the man as Overkill, a notorious super villain. This revelation terrifies Arthur even further but he is released from custody.

Tick meets up with Arthur and tells him he thinks he took too murderous of an approach to dealing with the henchmen but Arthur informs him that he wasn't the one who killed those men and that Overkill was the one who did it. Arthur also tells him he's done trying to convince the world that the Terror is still alive and that he just wants to go back to having a normal life. Arthur goes back into his damaged apartment alone and is confronted by Miss Lint, who was lying in wait for him. She confronts him about a particular news clipping that connected an old explosion in a lab sixteen years ago with another more recent one. Arthur admits his theory of The Terror still being alive but Miss Lint is certain that if that were true, she would be the first to know. Miss Lint tries to get Arthur to take the suit off and shocks him unconscious. He has a nightmare of his father being killed by The Terror and then wakes to find that Miss Lint is gone as is the suit. Overkill is shown to be watching him but does nothing when he sees that Arthur isn't wearing the suit anymore.

Arthur heads out but stops at his local corner shop on the way. He tries to pay back the money for the poncho he took but the man instead asks him to deal with Tick, who has refused to leave and begun making friends with the man's mother, who is cooking him food. He tells Tick he was right about Overkill but still doesn't want to be the one fighting against evil. He encourages Tick to do it himself.

Dot drives Arthur to work and reminds him that their stepfather Walter is having a birthday party that they must attend.

Some of Ramses' men come into the corner shop to get an extorted payment but Tick stops them and orders that they leave, despite the shop-owners repeated attempts to give them the payment. This doesn't go over well with Ramses, who has Miss Lint come in again. He reminds her that she needs to get the suit back per his orders. Lint mentions how there is a theory floating around that Terror is still alive but Ramses dismisses this, as there were remains found that were matched to his identity.

Tick visits Arthur at work and reveals that he has been suffering some sort of head trauma and thus only been able to recall that he is Tick and a superhero but he's not able to do this investigation to find Overkill without Arthur's intelligence. Arthur sends him away so he can finish the rest of his work day but will help him later. However, the work day is interrupted by the arrival of Overkill, who corners Arthur and once again demands the suit but reveals that he wants it to go after the Terror. Tick then shows up to save Arthur. Overkill attempt to attack him but inflicts little to no damage on Tick until he grabs one of Tick's antennae which are shown to be a sensitive nerve point for him. Overkill then further exploits this weakness to throw Tick out of the building.

The Tick is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.

The Tick S01E02 "Where's My Mind?" Recap

Miss Lint and her henchman storm into Arthur's apartment. One gunman shoots at him but he's protected by the supersuit that The Tick gave him. Tick crashes back into Arthur's apartment and faces off against Miss Lint, who shoots mass amounts of electricity at him but Tick remains alive despite her best efforts. The blowback ends up shooting the electricity into her henchmen and her glass eye even pops out into a glass of water. In the scuffle, Arthur gets flung out a window but he is able to activate the suit to help his fall before running off into a nearby alley. Tick flies out to meet Arthur.

Miss Lint looks over the many newspaper clippings Arthur had compiled onto his wall. One remaining henchman comes in to say that Ramses wants to see her, and that he himself is quitting working for her.

Dot is practicing with her roller derby team but takes a break as she's concerned by the fact that Arthur isn't responding to her calls or texts. Later, she helps out a man with some injured bikers.

Arthur is frantic at the prospect of being in danger. He heads into the back of a corner store to steal a poncho to hide the suit from prying eyes, something Tick chides him for. He runs back outside and is observed from afar by a masked sniper.

Ramses meets with Miss Lint and reminds her that she works for him and needs to fulfill her obligations.

Tick doesn't understand why Arthur wants to give back the suit and run away from being a hero. He correctly deduces that The Terror took something away from Arthur. Arthur opens up about how The Terror killed his father when Arthur was a child. Tick responds by forcing an awkward hug onto Arthur, who admittedly feels a bit better as a result. When Arthur spots some henchmen driving by, she runs up and offers to give back the suit but Tick interferes by slipping the car on it's side and shoving it down the road. The car tips back upright and the men drive off. Arthur then begins to grow suspicious that Tick might not actually be real, but merely a hallucination of his own mental illness. He walks off towards his apartment and finds Dot waiting for him. She expresses concern for his well-being and Arthur panics about him hallucinating Tick, who then walks up but Dot can see him, confirming him to be real.

Miss Lint goes back to her apartment and puts in a new glass eye. She then has a flashback of her when she was working for The Terror. Their conversations reveals that "Miss Lint" was originally a nickname some of Terror's henchmen had come up with to make fun of Miss Lint. Terror advises her to use the nickname and make it a strength, as well as to not kill his men for these insults but to kill people because it's fun. He also gives her bracelets specially designed to help stabilize her electric powers without diminishing her strength. Those same bracelets were damaged during her attempts to electrocute the Tick.

Tick advises Arthur to not let Dot push him towards a life of simple normalcy. Arthur says that Tick is the crazy one and should just leave him alone. Arthur walks off alone and is cornered by the henchmen that want the suit back. However, those men are brutally attacked and killed by the masked sniper that had been watching Arthur from afar. Arthur activates the suit and the man tells him to take it off. Arthur tries to do so but they're interrupted by the arrival of some police officers. The masked man gets away, leaving Arthur to be blamed for the brutal murders. Arthur invokes "The 28th", which causes the police officers to call in to the station that they're dealing with a superhero.

The Tick is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.


Teen Wolf S06E20 "The Wolves of War" Recap

The episode opens with Scott and Chris rescuing a young werewolf named Alec in LA.

Then we return to the gunfight between Gerard's men and Scott's pack. The shoot-out is interrupted by the arrival of Stiles, who hits one of the gunmen with his jeep and Derek, who wolfs out to join in on the fight. Monroe and the remaining gunmen flee and Stiles scolds Lydia for not telling him about what was going on. Scott kneels and looks after Deucalion in his dying moments. Scott hugs Derek, who reveals that he didn't come back for Beacon Hills, but for Scott. Gerard begins speaking to the group though the radio in Stiles' truck, reciting Shakespeare. Derek finishes the passage which confirms that war has begun. Gerard reveals that he has Jackson captive and electroshocks him. He then reveals that he has not only Jackson and Ethan captive, but Deputy Parrish and his father too, while Liam and Mason are captive at the hospital. He warns Scott that he will not be able to save them all, and that the war is coming for him.

Scott tasks Theo with going after Liam and Mason while the rest of the pack regroups while Stiles reveals how the FBI had formed a mission to go after Derek. He convinced the FBI to bring him along on the mission so he could save Derek from being killed but Derek had to carry him out of the building due to Stiles' toe being shot in the mission.

Corey confesses his love for Mason and uses his invisibility power to try to sneak them out. Melissa tends to Nolan's head wound and tells him to get up and help her take back the hospital.

Gerard shows Monroe the super-bullet he has forged that is strong enough to kill Scott.

The pack discuss the Anuk-Ite and how it works - that the two halves have merged and they cannot look at it or else they will die. Coincidentally, Stiles' greatest fear is going blind. Scott is determined that they will all go after their captive loved ones, while the Anuk-Ite will eventually find them. Peter heads to Beacon Hills High and finds some victims of the Anuk-Ite that have been turned into statues. The group tries to warn him not to look at the Anuk-Ite but he has already lowered the phone so when the Anuk-Ite corners him, he is turned to stone.

Jackson taunts the guard watching him into coming closer. He's then able to get his tail out and knock the guard out before stealing the keys to his cuffs. He tries to find a way out but encounters Stiles and Lydia who had broken into the armory to rescue him. Jackson then reveals that he's there with Ethan so they must save him too. Scott calls Stiles and tells him there's something he need stop retrieve from the armory.

A group of Gerard/Monroe's followers try to shoot and kill Liam but Theo is able to get Liam into an elevator and out of the line of the fire. They work together to fight off the hunters while Mason and Corey are shown to have fought back to a smaller degree in another part of the hospital. Melissa and Nolan then emerge to help Theo and Liam, but they must all run and take cover from Gabe, who begins shooting with an automatic weapon. Theo is shot in the back of the shoulder in the chaos. Still, the group is able to work together to fight off the hunters.

The pack finds a petrified Peter at the school and Derek is able to hear that Peter still has a heartbeat so there is seemingly a way to save him once they stop the Anuk-Ite. Monroe comes across Scott with Malia and Derek, and shoots him with the yellow wolfsbane bullet. Scott tells Malia to go after Monroe to keep her from getting away, while Derek warns him that the wolfsbane will kill him. He gets Scott to a chemistry classroom and burns the wound to try to save him and further along the healing. Derek senses that the Anuk-Ite is near, as his fear spikes up. Lydia, Jackson, and Ethan also feel the uprise in fear when they arrive to the school.

Sheriff Stilinski arrives at Eichen House and fights off the three Deputies that were tasked with guarding Parrish. After beating the Deputies, he open the room and orders the Deputies to let Parrish out, which they agree to do. Together, they also free Scott's father and band together to rise up against Gerard and take down the reign of terror.

Lydia discovers a petrified Malia in Monroe's office. Jackson is wondering around the locker room and the Anuk-Ite tricks him into opening his eyes so he become petrified too, having already done the same to Ethan. The Anuk-Ite tries to trick Derek by claiming to be Jennifer, asking for another chance. Derek keeps his eyes closed and tries to hit the Anuk-Ite but the Anuk-Ite continues its deception till Derek relents and opens his eyes, joining the others in a petrified state.

Kate is angered when she learns that Gerard gave the majority of the yellow wolfsbane to Monroe. Gerard then reveals that he used the rest of it on another bullet that he uses to shoot Kate, as he will not allow her back into his good graces since she's still a supernatural creature. Chris then reveals himself and says that he has lost and Scott knows how to fight off the Anuk-Ite.

Scott is cornered in the library by the Anuk-Ite, who briefly takes on the form of Stiles to try to goad him into opening his eyes. It also taunts Scott with the memory of Allison. Scott is still injured from from the yellow wolfsbane but continues to keep his eyes closed despite the Anuk-Ite taking on the form of each of his friends to try to bait him into doing so. The Anuk-Ite then grabs Scott by the throat and demands that he open his eyes but Scott then unsheathe his claws and blinds himself. He uses the training and instruction bestowed upon him by Deucalion and the bravery he now has to fight the Anuk-Ite. Scott knows that by binding with a shapeshifter, the Anuk-Ite must operate under those rules too. Stiles barges into the library and sprays the Anuk-Ite with mountain ash, so its powers become inverted and then it becomes petrified while all the petrified victims return to their normal state. It's all very timely too, as Monroe had issued orders to her followers to shoot the petrified members of the pack but they're able to fight off the hunters instead. But Jackson and Ethan are nearly shot by another hunter until Coach Finstock pops out and beats the hunter down with a lacrosse stick, saying it's good see Jackson again before walking out.

At the hospital, Gabe is badly wounded and says that it hurts. Theo approaches him and takes away his pain until Gabe dies from his injuries. Sheriff Stilinski, Parrish, and Agent McCall arrive at the hospital to arrest the remaining hunters.

Back at the armory, Kate uses the last of her strength to change into a were jaguar and kill Gerard, while Chris walks away. Monroe speaks on her radio, asking for someone on her side to respond, but Liam does instead, telling her that she lost. Thus, she flees.

The pack gathers around Scott, who still hasn't healed his eyes. Derek warns him that if he doesn't heal soon the damage will be permanent. Lydia glances at Stiles and gets the winning idea, telling Malia to kill Scott. She does and this gives him the courage and concentration to heal.

Liam and Nolan agree to be co-captains of the lacrosse team and Scott narrates how their pack is stronger than ever and they have many allies. Jackson and Ethan return to London while Chris and Melissa begin a romantic relationship.

Monroe is revealed to have continued her war against supernaturals and there are thousands of followers to her cause. Scott tells the new werewolf Alec from the episode's beginning about all of this and says they can fight together against her. Chris drops them off at a meeting spot where Stiles, Lydia, Derek, Malia, and Liam all arrive. Scott invites him to join their pack but says he'll have to fight with them. Alec reveals how Monroe said that he is a monster and she'd kill him no matter how old he is but Scott assures him that he's not a monster, but a werewolf like him.


Hemlock Grove S03E07 "Todos Santos" Recap

The previous episode's cliffhanger regarding Olivia attacking Pryce is resolved. She did attack him in his sleep but apart from a bit of neck bruising, Pryce is alive and well. Pryce then stayed up all night to look for research and answers so Olivia can be transferred into another body before the cancer takes her life. Olivia must then decide how to dispose of Ochoa's body. She rolls his body up in a carpet and throws it into a dumpster near her building. After returning to her apartment, she watches as the garbage truck dumps his body in with the rest of the trash. Olivia ponders how they could've been happy together if he hadn't screwed everything up but then she hallucinates Ochoa as a mythical deity called Chango.

Shelley receives a large shipment of supplies at the warehouse, Rooster Poot, she has been staying. It's an apology gift from Roman consisting of including things like toothpaste, blankets, and batteries.

Peter meets with Milan, leader of the Croatians, who has decided to give Peter one last chance to stop Destiny from her vengeance quest or else they'll all be killed.

Pryce finds the Greek delivery man in his room. The aftereffects of having another conscience transferred into his mind is that he was suffering from delusions that he was Pryce himself. Pryce notes that they must continue to monitor him and study what aftereffects he is exhibiting.

Olivia continues to have visions of Chango and also learns that Aitor, Shelley's new friend/love interest has a criminal past. Shelley is enjoying sharing her new gifted items to other people in need at Rooster Poot when Annie comes to visit her and make some introductions. When the two go somewhere in private, Annie reveals that she is Shelley's half-sister from long ago. Shelley learns that Roman only just recently learned about her existence too. Annie appreciates how Shelley has a large collection of books, whereas Roman has none in his house.

Peter berates Destiny for going after Milan, claiming she is acting irrationally and makes excuses to cover up why he has been acting strange. Destiny is determined to get the truth out of Peter and doesn't want lies to destroy the relationship they have.

Olivia visits Rooster Poot to confront Aitor. He had killed someone twenty years ago but now he has been trying to clean his life up and make it worth something, which is why he does things like feed the homeless at Rooster Poot.

Pryce informs Olivia that the only way she can survive on through a host-transfer is to find an Upir that she can have her consciousness moved into.

Destiny gets one of her friends to help poke holes in the story by questioning Baj, another one of the Romani men that was with Peter and Andreas on their night out. Destiny knows that something isn't adding up and the worst part of it all is that Peter is lying to her. She has also been working with police, listening to the recording of the 9-1-1 call placed that led them to finding Andreas' body. It's Roman's voice but he's disguised it to try not to be recognised so Destiny listens to it over and over, trying to determine whose voice it is.

Annie leaves Rooster Poot and Shelley invites her to come back whenever she'd like, wanting her to meet Aitor some day and to not disappear altogether.

Peter calls Roman to meet him at a bar and says he can't keep lying to Destiny. Roman warns him that it's a bad idea and that it will ruin his relationship with Destiny but Peter seems determined that it's the best course of action.

Olivia tries to visit a man named Ben Charles and his wife, both Upirs. She hopes that one of them can serve as a host for her to be transferred into but she learns that Ben was killed by one of Spivak's creatures and his wife suffers from a congenital heart condition that could kill her at any moment. Olivia also learns about a gathering of Upirs that's set to take place in Toronto and takes the information on it so she can attend and find a suitable host.

Roman attends a board meeting at the Godfrey institute. One of the board members arrives and takes a semi-automatic weapon out of his briefcase and begins shooting at everyone. Roman and Pryce are quick to duck and hide beneath the desk but everyone else is killed. Roman then stands up and the gunamn prepares to shoot him until some security man shoot at him instead, forcing him to drop his large weapon. The man then pulls out a smaller gun and shoots himself in the head. Pryce observes a strange worm-lied creature begin to emerge from the man's head wound so he rushes the body to his lab. He removes the man's head and hooks it up to a machine that he pumps super-oxygenated blood into and tries to get a glimpse into the man's short-term memory. He deduces that Spivak got to this employee and uses a new technological program he's been developing to attempt to access the memories but they must hook another brain up to the machine to act as a router to clear the flow of images and Roman insists he be used so they can try to get some answers on where Spivak and Nadia is. Spivak had captured the man and flown him to the cabin but the man's brain goes dead. However, Pryce is able to determine that the man's eye is still working. Pryce scoops it out and realises it's a camera that Spivak is monitoring them from. The man's mouth opens and Spivak's voice begins speaking through as a sort of communication device. He taunts Roman and Pryce about their inability to find him yet and his still having Nadia in captivity.

Olivia attends the gathering of Upirs where everyone is spoken to by an influential Upir, Norville Knox, who has made a mass fortune through his work in the scientific medical field. He gives a speech on the theories he has developed about Upirs fallings sick and feeding on their own. Olivia then considers taking Norville as her new host so she will have his fortune, power, and influence.

Pryce sends orders to his staff to determine where the cabin is that Spivak is hiding in and tells Roman to go home and rest. When he returns home, he finds Annie waiting for him. She wants to say goodbye and part civilly like adults but Roman lashes out at her again. Annie expresses remorse for ever getting involved with Roman. Their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of Destiny who demands that Roman tell her the truth about what happened to Andreas and confronts him about being the one that called 9-1-1. Roman realises he's at least been partially caught so he admits everything in a rage, about how Andreas got everyone at the warehouse killed so he was killed by the Croatian and Peter covered everything up. Destiny refuses to believe that Peter had any fault and continues to blame Roman for everything. She punches him in a rage so he punches her back with his Upir strength. She falls backwards onto a table, badly wounded and struggling to breath. Annie jumps and tries to help her, pleading with Roman to call an ambulance. Roman instead crouches down and caresses the side of Destiny's head before snapping her neck.
