is working on the church when Eve and Ian arrive. At Ian’s invitation to help,
Michael handed him the rag and thanked them for showing up when they did. But he
knows why they’re there, and they don’t need to protect him from Caleb.
Sarcastically, Eve asks him when Caleb was going to come back and let him out of
the cellar. He does thank them for coming back when they did, but he’s curious
why they’re there. Eve tells him they’re getting married, and Ian asks him
to perform the ceremony. He’s happy for them, but he tells them he can’t.
is carrying his bag and getting ready to leave the hospital Denise sarcastically
asks him when he started making house calls. He should start with his brother.
Something’s wrong with that boy, but if he could bottle the strength Jack has,
he could make a fortune. The idea strikes Chris, and his face shows it.
is with Lucy in the woods. Lucy is in a black cape and black leather pants.
Kevin comments on her regalia. He tells her that it wasn’t alien abductions,
and if that’s where she’s headed, he’s leaving. She stops him, telling him
that this is something more diabolical then aliens. He’s not sure where
she’s going, but something turned Abe into a madman. But the police searched
the woods, and found nothing. Lucy’s convinced that they’re looking for
something ‘conventional methods’ won’t find. Knowing he’s going to
regret asking, he does. Staring at him seriously, she tells him that they’re
going to summon the evil spirit.
remembers her encounter with Caleb in the cavern. His words of wanting to be her
protector, dancing in his arms. Determined to not let Caleb get to her, she
picks up the phone and asks Alison to meet her and not tell Jamal. As she
speaks to Alison, jack exits the bedroom. Startling her when she hangs up, Jack
asks her what’s going on.
asks Michael why he won’t marry them. Telling them that he’s happy for them,
he says he has too much to do at the church. Eve and Ian don’t buy that, and
he finally tells them that he can’t marry them because of Caleb.
Lucy spread her cape on the ground and place her crystals in a circle on it,
Kevin jokes about Lucy being a witch. Lucy informs him that if she were a witch,
he would know it. She gets off on a tangent about how bad of a wrap witches have
gotten. When Kevin says her name in that tone he uses when he wants her to get
to a point, she explains the meaning of the cape and the crystals she has spread
around on the ground. They will help summon the evils spirit that she’s
convinced is behind everything that’s happening. She’s convinced the
stranger card and the evil spirit are one and the same. She wants him to stand
inside the circle to avoid being susceptible to the evil. Making light of her
intentions, he’s going to look around while she does her summoning. Holding up
a crystal, she begins to read from a book.
tells him that since he was sleeping, she was going to see Alison. She told her
to not tell Jamal because she and Jamal got in a fight, and Alison needs her
for some girl talk. After telling Livvie that he feels better, he says he’s
going to go home. But she tells him that she feels safe with him, and she wants
him to wait for her. She’s not afraid of him. They kiss, and tell each other
they love each other. Telling her he’ll be okay, he closes the door behind
in the apartment, Jack pours himself a glass of water and holds it against his
face as if he’s hot. The doorbell rings, and Chris enters when Jack opens the
door. Beginning with saying he’s worried about Jack, Chris changes his tactic
when Jack doesn’t believe him. Chris has an offer for Jack. Chris wants to
figure out what’s going on with Jack, and all Jack has to do is agree to be
Chris’s science experiment.
and Livvie are in the cavern. Alison has told Jamal that they are shopping, and
she wants to know why they are there. Livvie tells Alison that Caleb brought
her here. She knew it would be okay, and she went with him. Alison tells her
that Caleb is a freak, and she needs to stay away from him. When Livvie tells
her that she wants to tell Caleb to stay away from her so she can get him out of
her mind, Alison asks her if she’s ever heard of a restraining order. The
cavern is now empty, and Livvie is trying to convince Alison they really were
tries to convince Michael that he isn’t Caleb. Michael replies that the evil
in Caleb is also in him. Eve replies that the good in Michael is also in Caleb.
But that’s why Michael is there- to rid Caleb of the demons. That’s also why
he can’t leave. But he wants Eve and Ian to know that they say a holy place
isn’t truly a holy place until it has been touched by love. Thanks to them,
his church has been.
is still arguing with Jack. Jack is spiking a fever, and he still has the
strength to rip someone’s head off. He tells Jack about Sam’s accusations
concerning Zach’s gang. Chris accuses Jack of knowing something’s happening
to him. Jack wants to know why Chris cares. Money is why Chris is involved, and
he offers to split it with Jack. Jack still isn’t interested, so Chris uses
Livvie. Chris reminds Jack that he’s out of control, and asks how sure is he
that he won’t lose it on Livvie. Unable to answer, Jack stares at Chris, who
tells him that the only hope he has of figuring this out is to work with him.
and Ian are in the church, and Ian suggests getting married without Michael.
She’s thinking about Michael praying at that alter when she first saw him.
With the sun shining on him, it was a very spiritual meaning for her. She talks
about how hard he’s worked to make this place special and sacred. Ian tells
her again that they can’t help him, but once again, Eve isn’t sure. Eve
wants to get married in that church.
is repeating an incantation to herself, while Kevin watches. A voice calls her
name, and Lucy reacts with terror until she realizes it was Kevin. Slapping him,
she tells him that he scared her. He tells her that she’s been babbling for a
while, which infuriates her. She is a chanting, there is a difference. Finally
she admits that there aren’t any spirits out there, and she leans over to pick
up her crystals. As Kevin leans down to help her, there are a pair of red eyes
peering out of the trees at them.
tells Livvie that she’s been under a lot of stress, and Livvie thinks Alison
means she’s making this up. Upset, Livvie tries to tell Alison that something
really weird is going on. Alison tells her about her and Jamal talking to Dara
about Jack. When Alison tells Livvie that Dara called it Zombie, Livvie tells
her how stupid that is. But Alison won’t give this up. Jack was dead, and
he’s back, and Livvie can’t deny something’s not right. Before Alison can
drag her out, they hear footsteps, and Livvie’s convinced it’s Caleb.
is preparing a syringe, telling Jack that he has to draw blood. Chris hides the
fact that there is a vial of Thorazine in his case. But Jack doesn’t want him
to. Finally Jack decides to come clean. He tells Chris that he’s hungry, that
no matter how much he eats, he’s still hungry. Slowly he advances on Chris,
telling him that sometimes he gets this uncontrollable urge. When Chris turns
and faces him to ask him what the urge is, Jack stares into his eyes and says
