David the crazy captured cultist kills himself via a 1960s CIA method. Weston gets sent to his room by Donovan (no really) and the cultists grab him. Emma desperately hurls herself at the vicious, lunatic Joe. Weston gets battered by the cult. Joe kills a cultist. This was dire; I don’t care for the idiot unscary ugly Roderick or the Anna Torv wannabe Louise.
“Nobody likes me.”
“He’s paraphrasing Ted Bundy.”
Joe talks too much. The cultists kill women named Claire Matthews. One Claire Matthews is so stupid, it is mortifying. New cultist Amanda is interesting, she has a weapons fetish. Roderick mocks Emma. Jacobs finally kills for the first time. There is death, an arrest and a reunion. Flashbacks show a nerdy Paul, an extremely resentable Emma and who Paul’s first ever murder victim was and how he bonded with Jacob.
“I took a shotgun to both of them.”
“So I went to a hardware store and bought a hatchet, electric hacksaw, some ammonia and a bucket.”
“What do you have there?”
“You’re a murderer.”
Roderick and Carroll have issues about who runs the cult. Claire whines about her lack of media access and then the cultists attack her motel. Hardy and Claire hide out at Hardy’s former FBI partner’s house (it’s that fat bloke from ‘Skyline’ and ‘Dexter’). Joey continues to be a load, Claire wants to talk about her feelings as cultists prepare to attack, someone gets shot, Claire is an idiot, Joe yaps more and Hardy’s ex-booty call is a cultist. But of course she is. Jacob has cracked. This wasn’t good.
“How does a group of killers stay hidden this long?”
“They were sent to a foster care home that was later busted for militia activity.”
Whips and Regrets
Carroll tries to force reconciliation on his wife. Claire rants that if the entire universe tried to persuade her to reconcile with Joe, she would not. Carroll’s cult of corrupt murderous hypocrites who are self serving and at odds promise physical violence if Claire does not reunite with Joe. Emma is clingy, Roderick is a rapacious jackass, Hardy nearly gets a sex worker killed and the cult’s training camp/brainwashing centre is located. Joe makes grandiloquent displays and watches Molly’s sex tapes of her and Hardy. This was okay.
“You an alcoholic or just a problem drinker?”
“The word cult is ghastly inappropriate and offends me.”
