Nicole (Natalee Linez) calls up a recording of Decker’s torture of Donna
Katrina (Aylya Marzolf) captures Xander and locks him in the hold of his boat, but Ben comes to his rescue because Katrina failed to take Xander’s phone away from him. Nicole (Natalee Linez) arrives to meet Xander as scheduled at 3:30am just in time to see him rescued by Ben and hear Cami’s frustrated wail as they escape. Nicole returns home and compares Cami’s wail to the recorded cries of Donna as she was tortured by Decker.
After Xander’s escape, the enraged Katrina is lured to a place where she thinks Ryn will be alone and vulnerable, but instead, all of Ryn’s allies, both human and merfolk, show up to support her. Outnumbered, Katrina agrees to work together with Ryn and her supporters. (One wonders how trustworthy Katrina is in the long term.) Ben, fresh from a confrontation with his family over their involvement with Klesco Oil, has a plan to somehow disrupt and draw attention to the oil company’s operations. His plan, he tells Maddie, was inspired by the tactics used by an ecological action group to achieve a ban on drift nets. Continue reading →
Susie Miller (Ksenia Solo) preparing to remove all traces of Donna from her associate’s car
The show seems to be getting a bit off-topic. Hynek and Quinn are called in by The Generals to investigate what turns out to be an experiment conducted by the American government and designed to expose a platoon of rangers in Missouri to a chemical agent without their knowledge. (To be fair, it did sort of look like a bunch of UFOs at the start, and The Generals were unaware of the experiment. The pattern created by the shells that were fired that contained the chemical agent looked a lot like what Hynek saw at the nuclear testing range in “The Green Fireballs“. It seems possible that Hynek was exposed to psychotropic drugs of some sort there. Continue reading →
Sheriff Bishop is out of town for a psych evaluation that will determine whether he keeps his job. He will return to a lot of trouble. His wife Susan, unable to cope with the secretiveness of her family, relapsed and called her dealer (Glen, played by Christopher Rosamund), and later visited him in his motel room (to get a fix, not for sex) and somehow left her wedding ring there.
Maddy decided to help her mother retrieve the ring, and Ryn tagged along. Glen returned while Maddy was still in his room and decided to attack her. Ryn rescued Maddie, and killed Glen in the process. It was self-defense, but Ryn’s prints are probably still on file from when she tossed that other guy through a car windshield and it is doubtful that Acting Sheriff Staub (who did not appear in this episode) will be inclined to let her go again, even if Maddie explains the situation (unless someone explains mermaids to her).
